Able to kill the snake, Zilv’lyn tricked a group of Drow slavers that he had a slave in tow. Heading through the portal now he found himself in a holding room containing many slaves. Most of the common races were being held on the bottom row of some brass cages. Other races held at the top seemed to be the more sought after by the slavers.
Riley and Ragdus made a timed decision to disguise themselves as a lord and his servant. Riley directed his companion to move towards the upper stage as the crowd gathered to see the new stock of slaves being presented. As a large purple curtain opened, a woman stepped forward and seemed to be the one behind a dark auction of sorts. Riley was able to identify that a red gem out of his goblet would pay for the chance to buy slaves.
Ragdus and Riley both saw their friend Morgren inside one of the upper cages. He was incapacitated. They took the liberty to speak to the mistress of the show. They informed her that she didn’t need to kill the slaves and in doing so, shifted her attention to the mortal being she had cursed.
As Zilv’lyn approached the auction area, he thought he might have seen a man he saw in the swamp. Before he could make sure, he felt a strong pull in his abdomen. The mistress began chanting in another language. She was pulling him with a dark energy she had sent into his body in the swamp! Setting fire to the curtain and killing most of the slavers gave enough distraction to exit the compound through another painting at the end of the hall, but nit before Ragdus slit the witches’ throat with a silver dagger he found in the swamp.
The group of adventures were able to capture and deal with 1 Drow warrior. He gave them information regarding how to leave the feywild fortress they were inside if they let him live and gave him the silver dagger used to kill the mistress.
