Sinbad and his crew sail to Basra, to retrieve a priceless treasure from its Sultan for the Caliph: a sacred obelisk, said to have belonged to Ramses II of Egypt. Whoever owns it is believed to hold unlimited power, though the Sultan of Basra claims never to have found its secret. Maeve meanwhile hopes to meet a legendary sorceress in Basra, named Cairpra, to help in her search for Dim-dim. The Sultan gives Sinbad a medal to wear, which grants him "diplomatic immunity" in Basra, and access to his own treasure room. Someone who's also been eyeing the treasure room (though through magic) is Rumina - with plans to harness the obelisk's power herself. Rumina infiltrates the palace as a dancer, entertaining Sinbad's crew. When she and Sinbad go off alone, she shakes a magical dust on him, then snatches the medallion. The dust shrinks Sinbad to only inches tall, and she plucks him up, carrying him out in the top of her dress. Trapping Sinbad in a bottle in her bedroom, with her cat to guard...
