Counting the Loot
After escaping the Sewers and a Chimera the party, sans Adran, decided to take a rest at Avery’s hideaway while they figure out what they have obtained. They found a decent amount of gold as well as a potion of Invisibility, a potion of Clairvoyence. The real loot though was a magical vase that was made by a man named Dolaz. This vase allows a person who touches it an escape into a different plane that they are stuck until a certain amount of time passes. 12 hours is how long the spell last until the occupant crawls their way through the top of the vase. Among these goods were two letters of Diotu’s, possible a journal. These indicated two things, first that Diotu knows where the Arcane Sanctum is, and that Arturo Cervantes is bringing a lot of people to Saint Morek.
Seeing A Man About A Horse
The party determines that the most immediate threat is Diotu reaching the Arcane Sanctum and that Arturo Cervantes can wait. The party go to acquire a few horses to reach the Sanctum even sooner. Lerissa has purchased Chester, Chestnut, Beatriz, Minni Winni, and Last One To The Barn. The five horses that are to be burdened by The Funky Bunch. After they leave the horses at the stable to go to the shop that Atte runs to get topped off on magical equipment. Although while arriving it is quickly noted that the small shop that was there, is no longer. No trace of it even being there at any time lead the team back to the stables. Upon return it is believed that either The Violet Visionaries or The Court Of Hounds are buying up the remaining horses around to get to the Sanctum.
I Will Take it! I Will Take The Vase To The Sanctum!
With the vase of Dolaz strapped to one of the mounts The Funky Bunch rode to the Zoo Run. At Ticas Rest, just on the Southern side of the Zoo Run, the party finds a burning building filled with bodies of both the Violet Visionaries and The Court of Hounds. This is where Adran returns to the party by literally crawling out of the magical vase. Further into the forest Lerissa trys to convince the group she knows someone who can help her so she searches for a crossing point into the Feywild that are dotted through the Zoo Run. After 2 hours of searching and unsuccessful, Lucius decides to stay behind with her and help as the others give up on this fruitless endeavor and have now lost time. Reaching out to Faolan Devestriel she and Lucius are transported into the Feywild at the home of Faolan. He reaches out to the others who know nothing about why the trees surrounding them seem to be attacking. Although they put up a good fight the remaining members eventually get caught and are also transported.
A Prince Is Revealed
Prince Faolan Devestriel greets the group and explains briefly how he is connected to Lerissa and allows her to now be able to communicate with those invited to the wedding without falling unconscious. After a brief interaction with The Funky Bunch, Faolan transports them directly to the Arcane Sanctum, where they are surrounded by corpses and the entrance seems to have been blown open. The party takes in the sights and counts a few more Hounds on the ground than Visionaries but the battle seems to have made its way inside.
