Early in the morning the party travels deep into the many tunnels that exist beneath Redriver, to interrogate their dragonborn prisoner. They learn about the dragonborn army but also other important things. Near the end of the interrogation, Ioroveth spots a magical spider climbing up the prisoner with his magical eye. With the promise of a quick death, the panicked dragonborn shouts out that Ioroveth should be mindful of 'The Perished Land' in the Forest of Death and that he should stop it all costs. After the dragonborn is beheaded, the magical figure of a drow dressed in a buttoned trench coat appears. He introduces himself as Darom Madar's master named Fellith, the first name on Arawn's finger. After the party leaves, Fellith sends four spiders to retrieve the dragonborn's body. They report to the Iron Baron before setting off to aid Baron Allbridge, allowing themselves a detour to Riverwood to help with the problems there.

Episode H-07: Dread of NightCampaign date: 6 Goodgrove, 638
When our heroes arrive in the town of Turriff, they immediately noticed something was wrong: the city was built to keep everyone inside, the laws kept anyone from being awake at night and the people appeared brainwashed. After meeting up with Itty, a halfling woman also interested in the town's affairs. William pretended to be a night-shift guard and so the party managed to slip into the Mayor's mansion, whom they suspected to be involved in all of this. They fought the mayor, who turned out to be a vampire and killed him. His daughter turned out have had contact with an aberrant creature. The night encounter ended with a voice in the sky warning the entire world of a great danger.
Notes: The mayor's son was a zombie. The Mayor was related to Sylvia (Arawn's fiance). The party found several books and diaries in the mansion. Itty is now the mayor of Turriff and she promised to keep in touch with Myurin. The party also learned of an abandoned dragonborn city north of the city, and they decided to follow Drake there.
Episode H-08: Cathedral of the Five SpiresCampaign date: 7 Goodgrove, 638
Inside the abandoned dragonborn city, our heroes found drake inside a Cathedral dedicated to Tiamat. After finding an ancient artifact belonging to Bahamut in a secret room, the party found itself torn in two: they had to attack Drake to get to Arash, who is planning some kind of ritual, but Drake was Matt's childhood friend. After a short inter-party bout, our heroes had to wait until Arash finished his ritual. They finally encountered him in the back room of the cathedral and defeated him after a tough fight. When they went through the portal Arash had created, they found the city to be flying on a crash-course with Redriver. Arash had also created a portal back into time, hoping to change the outcome of the ancient war. Half of the party stopped the change in the time-line from happening while the other half tried their best to control the flying city - or at least find a safer place for it to land. Arawn and Matt traveled to the past to change one event in their past. Myurin and William managed to crash the city somewhere west of Redriver, and live to tell the tale.
Notes: Arash had trapped a small canary in a diamond-like form, but Myurin freed it. Drake managed to escape on Crunchy, the teleporting and stone-eating drake.
==== Episode H-09: Clan under the Mountain
Campaign Date: 7 Goodgrove 641
Three years have passed since the ancient dragonborn city Tia'Gar fell from the sky. Matt and Arawn have made a different lives for themselves, while the rest has also parted ways. Their old friend Xanven called for a celebration in honor of them managing to change the past and prevent him from dying. During their reunion, Xanven told them the Chartalon clan had abducted Myurin's father, Gundan Ironsmither. Diving straight into a rescue mission (and into a whirlpool), the party found out the dwarven Underdark city of Undermountain had its waterways poisoned. Josh Battlebeard, Myurin's cousin, told them her father was in the clan's vacation house. The party wasted no time getting there and encountered resistance from a group of duergar. Deep inside the house, they found Gundan accompanied by Mira Chartalon and a drow woman, who demanded a trade: Gundan for the dragonorb. Thanks to a clever plan by our heroes, they managed to escape with both the orb and the old blacksmith. But a portal created by Arawn led to an unknown destination, and they were followed there by a viscous owlbear...
Notes: Outside of Undermountain, the party encountered Fulgar Alebottom, who had vague memories of their life before the heroes changed the past. Thanks to an arrowshot by Ioroveth, the party also encountered a herd of spiders.
