Maximum Resource. Movement Speed. During the fight, Ishani noticed that Gedron seemed to be using his flail as a pact weapon.
She later confronted him about his patron while casting detect thoughts and discovered that he had made a pact with a fiend. As the party delivered this news to Goodnight Mother, she shared what she knew about the Prince of Joy. A star, Kingkino, came to him but was imprisoned.
The Prince seeks to free this star and his other children, but their release would bring total destruction to the island. The Prince of Joy is a skinwalker— he is able to steal the skin of a creature he slays and wear it as his own, but after a period of twelve years the skin begins to rot, so he cannot wear any skin for more than twelve years.
As the party thought on what to do next, settling back down for another winter night, Woodruff reappeared and gave them three massive platinum coins with his face embossed on them. XP: 7, Ksa Huue Ksa Djeli 14 Once Lukas cast Greater Restoration to remove the effects of the yuan-ti poison on Marra , Bittenleaf began berating her for being weak and once more captured.
Marra lunged at Bittenleaf until Andrus separated them, and while Ishani pressed her for her story, Marra walked away from them. Andrus followed her until she told him what happened— Marra, after having been raised as a slave of the drow and giving birth, was helped into freedom by the River Snakes but separated from her son, Harapan. Bittenleaf, Mwari , Lukas, Eldac , and Andastra assisted her out of Everflow to a River Snake contact named Neshani , who lived in a temple in a lake full of jellyfish.
After they left her there, she stayed safely in the temple for several days until Neshani and her assistant Dhruv escorted her to her supposedly safe location… as a slave of the yuan-ti at the Temple of Hisotee.
She had been given a taste and temptation of freedom only have it nearly immediately snatched away from her, along with her newborn son. She learned of the Night of the Lost Generation before the yuan-ti intoxicants fully took away her consciousness, and believed her son was dead. Andrus convinced her to join them headed to Everflow, where she could find a boat to carry her away to a new life where she could forget her pain on this island.
Her portent was very unpleasant— she had a vision of being slashed through the gut by a beautiful but faceless creature wielding a massive jagged sword. Along the way, Eldac took a wrong turn and wound up at some random tree in the middle of the forests. The grove overflowed with respect and adoration for Bittenleaf and most of her traveling companions. They conferred with her patron treant, along with Sundog , Fourthroot, and Dryterror , to glean what information they could about the Prince of Joy.
Along the way, while discussing loss and grief, Lukas shared a bit of his backstory— that he had been exiled from Lantana and lost his name, but evaded the punishment of dwai sholo. Lukas tore out the page and blackened out the name. Sundog revealed that the stars were visibly in motion in the dark skies above, while many of the grove residents ushered in the Moon of Ksa Djeli by burning that which they wished to be rid of.
After Ishani protected the party from falling by casting feather fall, Bittenleaf cast plant growth on the ancient treant. His mighty branches burst forth, smashing through the mirror maze and allowing them all to access and defend the grove once more.
Andrus went after the archfey but was soon charmed, allowing The Prince of Joy to escape into the surrounding forests. Dryterror ensnared Morthos in a net finally and smashed him with his flail, goaded on by Bittenleaf. Andrus, although confused as to who his friends were, defended himself against the Batirusas by unloading a ton of damage on them. Andrus prevented the final hag from slipping into her ethereal form so that they could eliminate her as a threat.
They returned to Everflow, whereupon Ishani began researching anti-teleportation methods and learning new spells. Bittenleaf stayed behind to create more wood woads and help repair the grove. Andrus retrieved his portable hole from a very surprised Lilluskan mage.
And Lukas ran into an old friend from Lantana, Maiden Suturo. Ksa Huue 30 While Bittenleaf fought back the urge to kill Marra outright, Andrus quickly changed into his new poison resistant leather armor and checked out the storage room, finding a pendant, some yuan-ti armor and weaponry, and a few books including a warlocking for dummies tome that Eldac Horkul was interested in. Ishani Kossir waited with the tortured yuan-ti while Eldac and Lukas Garer turned invisible and checked out the upper levels of the temple.
Lukas found a dangerous trap while Eldac checked out the ritual chambers of the upper floor. In return, Teolis would let them go on their way unharassed and agreed to consider a favor request from Ishani at a later date— and not to strike at the human civilizations on the island. Andrus charged into the Hall, and a very scary combat ensued.
Lukas provoked a nearly deadly reaction from Asutali, who quickly knocked him out until Andrus revived him, and from there on Lukas kept the party alive with regular healing. Bittenleaf took tree defender form and slayed Asutali with a magical arrow. And Eldac devoted the rakshasa to Nocturnal Indigo after killing him and following a series of stunning strikes. As Andrus struggled to recover his senses, Ishani gathered the impressive robe worn by the LIlluskan necromancer.
