Day 19 -
We spend a bit of time healing up from this zesty fight.
From the parapets, we enter the central double doors into a throne room.
Flowering vines decorate this chambers. Vaulted ceilings. Song birds
Adorning the west wall are two tapestries.
To the east is a carpet of summer grass leading to a polished mirror before an ebony throne. The images on the mirror change every so often. The area we just left was one of the images. Another is a raging battle at the gate. Another is Tatzleford with a battle raging in the village proper.
Beside the throne is a person gazing into a mirror. Seems she is not surprised to see us.
She turns to address us, “Challenge me in my own realm. The second born know their doom has arrived. As you can see, this prison can no longer hold me. Your souls trapped and cursed for all eternity.” Her shadow seems to move on it’s own. It swoops forward and engulfs her.
Leanna realizes that is the spirit of the land (Fell Night) is what just covered her. Massive resistance against lightning and cold.
Spectral image appears in the midst of us in the form of two unicorns. They will not let her have their land. Another manifestation of a Bullette. Another manifestation of an owl bear.
We are buffed by our pacts with the various spirits of the land.

Within Kaiden’s mind he hears, “This counts as one” from Talonquake.
As our blades cut at her flesh, she will tell her it is because of Sorscha.
- 1 x Fey Queen Rhoswen/Fell Night Spirit of the Land
There is pounding on the door at some point during this fight.
After an epic fight, we kill her and the Fell Night spirit. Stasja rescues Alexi from death and we heal him a bit.
Gilain grabs the staff and starts heading up the stairs. Many of us start moving up the stairs.
Kaiden picks up Rhoswen’s body and heads up the stairs after directing Cort to follow the group.
On the next floor up is a bed chamber with bird cages and jewelry. A rose colored glass set in the ceiling is some sort of floating disk. We try to use magic (UMD) to cause it to float down.
We rescue the birds, living and dead into one cage.
Stasja is able to trigger the item and we are able to use it to rise up.
We strip Rhoswen’s body of her gear and put it within the portable hole and loot from the bedroom.
Leanna, Gilain and Nisha start the ritual from the top of the tower. They were successful.
In the distance, a spout of mist starts to grow. Like a tornado. Things beyond the ward wall are being vacuumed back behind the wall.
Kaiden and Stasja we notice a large black bird on the throne. A cloud of smoke and turns into a woman. Queen Sorscha.
Sorcha wanted the mirror and we give it to her.
We bargain with her to owe her a favor to aid us to get us out.
Oewyn will owe her two favors.
We teleport and are teleported back to the portal.
