Giant Frogs, Mystic Portals, and a Whole New World
The battle with the unholy fiend was hard fought and eventually NightStorm resorted calling on the powers of nature to assist. He summoned forth a gigantic frog that attacked and then swallowed the fiend whole while our heroes dispatched his evil minions. When the battle was done the giant frog expectorated the knife of Chemosh and vanished back to his home plane.
Rider delivered the knife to his patron and was informed that his mother had been set free and was awaiting him back home.
NightStorm, being anxious to find his ladylove pressed the companions to return to Port Balifor to seek information and her whereabouts. Rider secured them passage on a ship and they made quick time in returning.
Shortly after returning NightStorm found out that ShadowWind had recently been seen in the slave market and had been bought by a merchant that was heading north. The group mad quick pursuit and caught the caravan as it was stopped near a strange rock formation that appeared to be some kind of portal. As they crept up on the caravan they saw that not only was ShadowWind not a slave, but she was assisting in some strange ritual around the portal.
After approaching and being reunited with ShadowWind NightStorm learned that the caravan was comprised of devoted followers of Chislev and were trying to open a portal to get to the goddesses planet. So he assisted in the ritual and the portal was opened. Originally NightStorm had not planned to go through the portal, but once the followers of Chilev had ventured through he heard sounds of battle and impulsively ran to help with his companions in tow.
On the other side of the portal they found the followers of Chislev being attacked by strange plant creatures. After a vicious battle all of the party had fallen to the poisonous vapors of the plant creatures except NightStorm who surrendered himself to be tested by the arboreal creatures to ensure that he and his party were not hellspawn.
The testing was successful and the party learned that a force of hellspawn had recently ventured through this portal and lain waste to all that they encountered. Further investigation would lead the group to the lands of the fey creatures and then on to find the mountain valley where the hells[awn creatures were massing an army to push through another portal attack Chislev directly.
Determined to help this world and defend mother nature the heroes dispatched the tree folk and fey creatures back to their homelands to prepare and muster strength while they ventured on to find the elves that were supposed to be living to the east.
In the east they found the great city of Vlad. A port for outlanders and spell jammers. After much discussion and interaction they were able to convince the Admiral of Vlad of the threat to the west and they were informed that Vlad would assist them in the fight if they could reach the fleet in Ansalon and bring the strength back to Vlad.
The group then took flying carpets back to the lands of the fey creatures, gathered their companions, and travelled on to the lands of the tree folk. Once there they made plans to resist the forces of evil. With the tree folk and fey creatures raiding and harrying the dark troops as best they could, the men from Vlad would try and reach the stone giants and other creatures to the north, and the folk from Krynn would journey back to Ansalon and try to contact that great fleet in Tarsis.
