They Came to Sollandheim
- After returning to the town, the elves and dwarfs traveled to the high elf frigate “Senlui’Elthrai” (meaning Swift Hope or Swift Doom depending on your perspective). There they met with the Arch Mage to discuss the herdstone and what had been done to it.
- When Clove awoke for the third time, he found himself in a dining chair. This would ordinarily be a happy surprise for a halfling, if the dining table wasn’t from a morgue and his company wasn’t a daemon trying to force feed him human entrails. His evening improved quickly when Irunil and Cael’yn arrived. They distracted the foul daemonette long enough for Clove to slip his bonds and skewer the monster with a kitchen knife as it made it’s escape. When the trio entered the secret chamber the creature attempted to escape into, they discovered a furnished bedroom complete with shelves of occult books. Clearly, the creature, or its consorts had been here for quite some time. As the high elf threw the blasphemous books into the fireplace, the halfling and wood elf inspected an unusual tome, “The Alchemy of Possession”. Looking at the pictures, they were able to determine that the poison that had been used on both Clove and the Duchess was described in this book. Cael’yn in particular recognized one of the wild plants used in the poison, “liars bane” as it is called in the empire, and surmised that with a sample of the plant she could make an antidote.
