EPISODE FIFTY-EIGHT: The Winterchild (Level 25)
The woman floating behind Sadhai introduced herself as Mozralchi, Maurathel’s mother and the godess of combat against blood magic and necromancy. She congratulated Terulai for discovering the complete record of Maurathel’s Song. The entire Winterchild affair had been a ruse orchestrated by Gauren to distract the group from reaching the song tablet first. Gauren was, coincidentally, also attempting to gain the Winterchild’s loyalty.
Leaving Angrecca, the group traveled by Sadhai’s crytal arm to the eladrin lands in search of the Feywild Gate. They arrived in the forests of Oruna near a dokalf outcast community. The...

EPISODE FIFTY-SIX: The Spirit Walk (Level 23)
Not long after Arhuzimel’s ascension, Nirvani felt concerned for Terulai, who had returned to Chayrshellech to oversee the maintenance of the new regime he had put into place there. Nirvani was taken in a vision telling her that Terulai wasn’t in Chayrshellech at all, but that he had somehow been taken captive into the Darkplane just outside Salvendum.
With Ardoth’s help she learned the Spirit Walk ritual from Onfalcedhuitha’s library, which allowed her and several companions to conscious leave their material bodies behind in Morvugol and travel as spirits. Doing so would allow them to travel through...

EPISODE FIFTY-FIVE: The Drowned Serpent (Level 22)
After four years of uniting the surviving Shadar-kai, Arhuzimel was prepared to become one with “she who sleeps,” and be baptized in shadow. A military escort and the mad priestess of Ulmhasa led him to Imbakhao, the former capital of the Hana empire, where the ceremony would be performed. When they reached it, they found it not only buried with millennia, but also occupied by a small unit of vampire soldiers from Perrith Gorr. They were excavating and guarding the ruins. The Shadar-kai with him explained that the city is the burial site of Imbakhao himself, the Drowned Serpent, son of Ulmhasa. The appearance...

EPISODE FIFTY-FOUR: Separate Paths (Level 22)
During the next four years the adventurers parted, their personal goals now taking presidence since the completion of their pressing quest to destroy the evil artifacts. Sadhai, whose religious interest was attracted by Loragg, took his leave of Nirvani, convinced that he was unworthy to have her as a mortal and as a penitent sinner. Nirvani became an official emissary of Ulthoroch to the other Hidden Cities. Some time after she resurrected the jhareth lords whose remains she recovered from Rhuminos, the great emperor Ardoth Intillanum proposed marriage. She agreed in respect and friendship, but believed that she would never love again. She spent...

A few days later, the group met onboard The Bone Dragon. Their pressing quest, to destroy the Devils’ Spine and the Tongue of Gauren, was complete.

Arhuzimel had returned to the castle to find Halendir aged severely, and near death. His eithalim immortality ended when Arhuzimel destroyed the wound crystals.
As Nirvani gave each at the table a ring with a sending stone, Sadhai’s crystal arm suddenly burned with bitter...

EPISODE FIFTY-TWO: Isulimendril (Level 20)
Arhuzimel led the party through Rhuminos toward the quarters of the remaining Oleithirim. On the way, they passed several displays of jhareth skeletons, from which Nirvani took samples for resurrection. The most prominent display was that of Ardoth Intillanum, the famed jhareth emperor who lived about 8,000 years ago. Nirvani convinced Sadhai to pick the lock. When he did so successfully, he was struck with a magical trap that left him paralyzed and suffocating on the floor.
Nirvani teleported inside the glass display to get a body part for resurrection, and immediately the body was hoisted out of the chamber. The back wall...

They hiked into it, where a formation of standing stones stood.
Icholloth prepared them for the expedited version of the purification ritual. Rather than spend thirty days in isolated fasting, they were to receive a spiritual cleansing by fire. Each meditated until he or she went under the trance...

EPISODE FIFTY: Old Friends (Level 19)
There was a fearsome battle in the mine. Tethaylaer was evidently in possession of terrible power as a vampire lord. He bore down on Nirvani, having recognized her as the only visible attacker when he was first killed, and as the fool who cast the Speak with Dead ritual on his severed head. Sadhai and Fastus went around to the other entrance to the chamber. They battled with disfigured vampires while Nirvani and Arhuzimel fought off Tethaylaer. Not long into the fight, Kloric and Evran showed up. They came looking for the others, who had been gone for hours, and heard the sounds of battle echoing...
