On one of the daily rounds, it would seem Altair was captured by the anti-magic faction, Gan Draíocht Níos Mó. Coincidentally, the only way to subdue the weapons master was to overpower his charmed equipment with..well...magic. Hypocrites! Don't worry though, Charandril and Caleb are likely on their way to help him out of the bind.
