Our story continues on the deck of the Redeemer, where Sir Laurence Van Drake and his allies mourn the loss of Masen Sternhammer and Mardak Fletcher…
- Melchior ascends the ramp of the Redeemer and thanks the Order for saving Stonehaven. The volcano destroyed much of the outlying jungle areas, but the destruction stopped just short of the outer wall of Stonehaven.
- A brief memorial is held for Masen, Mardak, and the others lost during the destruction of Stonehaven. Laurence gives a rousing speech, informing the people of Stonehaven (and indeed, of his own party) that he intended to use the locator crystal he took from the beholder to Farstep into the lair of their enemy and avenge those who fell here on Stonehaven.
- Ayla Sternhammer, now twice a widow, calmly ponders a life with neither Drogyn nor Masen to look after. She heals Saleos and reveals that Mardak’s weapon is forged from Soulsteel, and that it is possible his soul was transferred into the blade at the moment of his death. An old friend, Bulroq T’Orn, may be able to help restore the blade, and perhaps even bring Mardak back to life.
- Laurence has his crew fit the beholder’s locator crystal to the Redeemer’s Farstep Device. He informs the party that they have done enough, and they are already heroes in his eyes. There was no knowing what they would find on the other side of their next footsteps, so he made the journey completely voluntary. Not a single voice dissented, and the entire party prepared themselves for whatever lie ahead.
Meanwhile, in the Lost City of Anzarach, Reks Relagia contemplates all that he recently learned, about his grandfather, about the Drao, and about the threats that loom in the Starmost Tower ahead of him…
- Ko’Vasc’s allies, alchemists and servants of the God of Nature, Ryss, brew a thick, viscous syrup from ripe deepseeds, administering the concoction to Moon Duskbane and Maerlyn Zau’Ombra. It is the cure to the Draoplague.
- Reks comes to terms with Ko’Vasc’s relationship with him, and begins to plan the assault on Castle Anzarach.
- Dante volunteers to help the Drao to create a distraction at the base of the Alter Tower while Reks and company scale the Starmost tower and attempt to access it via the exposed balconies on the royal level.
- The Current scales the outside of the Starmost tower and finds their way within.
- S’zeves that the entire tower has been turned into a Runometric conduit attached to the lightning rod on the roof.
- In Medrahna’s quarters, Varen (now Edriq) finds an ornate darksteel dagger and some twisted journal pages depicting the arrival of Sir Nathan Gellar, the Emerald Knight of Imperia, on a diplomatic mission to visit Medrahna’s mother over sixty years ago.
- Once within the tower proper, the Current is beset by revenant bugbears! One of the revenants is none other than Rathos himself, his head sewn back onto his body.
- The Order arrives via teleportation pad, but is immediately beset by Revenants, including several bearing the mask of the Ebon League! The assault is intense and causes the team to split up and take different paths to safety.
- In a massive battle on a rickety catwalk. Aelanah, Laurence, Morik and Saleos heroically fend off waves of Revenants. Suddenly, just when they seemed too outnumbered to survive, the Current arrives to help them across the catwalk.
- It becomes apparent that several members of both the Order and the Current have gone missing, including Kaerysa and Moon Duskbane. Laurence and Reks nod to one another and make for the roof stairs.
