Who is Rajaat?
That’s a broad question that requires a bit of an explanation.
I’m sure you’ve all heard that Athas used to be a green planet. Oceans and forests and vast plains covered the world beneath a blue sun. This was known as the Blue Age, and the world was at peace.
Something happened…history is unclear on this. But the Sun turned yellow, the oceans receded, and the great beings that watched and protected our world became silent. Oh, I could go into the whole philosophical aspect and theories that mention that The Grey appeared at this time, but overall, that is irrelevant to the story.
This was known as the Green Age. This is the first that we know of our written history, and this is also the first known instance of the power of The Way. It was...

“With the spirit bound to the Eye, I can use it as something similar to a living phylactery. While it exists, the spirit will continue to sustain my youth and beauty, as well as restore my body in the unlikely event that I may perish. As long as the eye exists, I cannot die. It’s hatred of me also makes a powerful weapon.
The pools will continue to spawn my daughters, and will be the place of my rebirth should I die. And, my children will continue to maintain the pool until they are called.”
Another entry, dated several hundred years ago, mentions the theft of the Eye by one of Abalach Re’s daughters.
A later entry, one that is quite recent, is as follows;
“I felt a flicker of the Eye recently. It lasted but a few moments, but I was able to determine that...

After spending a short rest recuperating from the battle with the Queen’s mutated daughters, the group ventures further into the vault. They soon arrive at the treasury.

One sputtering candle illuminated the small basement. The five of them, along with Nanda Shatri and a young girl, a slave, made the chamber somewhat cramped and a little claustrophobic. Nearby, the sound of running water could be heard beneath the sound of Nanda and the girl’s quiet conversation.

The wind howled, pushing him forward. Ahead, he could hear the shouts and pounding feet of his group. But between the blowing sand, the chaos of the routed defenders, and the weight of his armor, Gundrek was falling behind.
Turning a corner, hoping that his companions had turned here as well, Gundrek was nearly trampled by a group of people running in the opposite direction. Rubbing the sand from his eyes, he noticed that the majority of them were either slaves or Unclean. Pushing his way forward, he pulled out his Kraghammer.
Ahead, he could see shapes approaching in the blowing sand. He could hear laughter and screams of terror as he approached.
There were three of them, enemy soldiers, laughing as they surrounded a young girl. One of the soldiers was pulling out a pair of shackles....

After a brief skirmish with one of Draj’s expeditionary forces, the party decides to further assist with defending the city. Gundrek spends some time assisting with training the very green conscripts who will be helping to fight off the attack. Mela assists with morale and finding places to convert areas of the city to make-shift hospitals. Dryder does what he can to find out the political climate of the city, trying to determine of the bodyguard of the fake Abalach-Re was truly the power behind the throne. Kratas and Katrie travel to the outer planes, looking for the Githzerai they assisted months ago.
This was a series of skill challenges that the entire party rolled remarkably well for. The results of their success aren’t apparent to them just yet, but in the next few sessions,...

The glaring red sun finally disappeared beneath the horizon. Though the oppressive heat of the day was still present, with the sun gone, it was almost bearable.
The moons had not yet risen, and the psurlon, still in a man’s form, began carefully tracing patterns and runes in the sand. Around him, guards from the Vishna manor kept crossbows trained on the dangerous creature. It ignored them, but the added protection still offered some relief to Kratas as he observed the beginning of the ritual.
“Is he telling the truth?” Mela was just behind him, also watching the creature, her bow drawn and knocked.
Kratas traced the patterns in the sand with his eyes. It was clearly a divination, and the runes did indeed imply that he was attempting to contact the Far Realm.

To consolidate their power, and to gather a fighting force, the party decides to contact another of the noble houses. After their brief encounter with Maarham, they decided that Nawab Vishna would be the best person to deal with. Since M'Ke was on the west side of Raam, and Vishna is on the east (the direction that the Sorcerer King of Draj would be approaching from), then they were hoping that by allying themselves with Vishna would put pressure on Maarham to assist them with the the coming battle.
Arriving at Vishna Manor, the party notices several curious things. The land surrounding the manor is riddled with strange pits and holes that the Vishna slaves are slowly filling in. Also, the slaves themselves are listless and unresponsive. Before they are able to investigate, however, the ...

The party journeys to Tyr to see if they can find Treona.
While they fight off the raging Mekillots, a Halfling from the crowd leaps into the fray, assisting the party. Soon, all the animals are either dead or unconscious, and the group assesses their wounds.

This is a recap of things that have happened. I haven’t had time to blog lately, but the campaign has continued.
To maintain and strengthen the ritual hiding the grove from the sorcerer kings, the Avangion Ulynin asks the party to journey to Kalidnay to retrieve an item, an obsidian orb. Using it, she hopes to continue to hide her grove and strengthen herself toward her final transformation. Dryder continues to avoid her, worrying that he will be unable to stop himself from attacking her if he sees her.
After a few days, the party departs for Kalidnay. The desert trek is dangerous, but they eventually arrive. With the full knowledge of Ulynin’s warning to them (Do not enter the city at night…those who enter at night never leave), they move in, quickly working their...
