Being led through a dark and misty swamp by the mysterious lone survivor of a strange curse wasn’t bad. Being led into an abandoned tower and finding out she’s part of a Hag Coven was much worse. As the darkness pulled in and 3 distinct female voices discussed the “ritual” using innocents brought into the swamp, it became clear the group was tricked. In fact, the group had hand delivered not 1 important piece of the ritual, but 4! The most important piece seemed to be a scroll inside an obsidian box.
As the ritual began inside the old tower foundation, the scroll levitated to the center of the ruin. As it floated above a blood coveted table, a thick black webbing poured forth from a growing spherical portal. The webs attached themselves to nearby trees and dead logs. They were expanding to open a large enough portal to act as a doorway!
As the group battled against harpies flying in from above the hag seemed to focused on the portal. An intense fight pursued, but the day was won by quick thinking and endurance. Before they could fight off their foes; Zilv’lyn was force fed a strange blue orb and Riley was able to slow down the portal with his concentration and divine connection. In the end the hag was grappled by Riley and forced through the portal and then his companions (except Zilv’lyn & Laif) soon followed.
