The Party[edit | edit source]

(Anna) Evelyn - Human Paladin of Lathander

(Holly) Strix - Tiefling Sorcerer

(ProJared) Diath - Human Rogue

(Nathan) Paultin - Human Bard

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

Last session, Evelyn's spirit flew up and into the atropal and, through the power of her faith, she unleashed rays of sunshine into the heart of the creature and, apparently, destroyed it.

Back in the Shadowfell, Diath, Strix, and Paultin sensed that the death curse was gone.

In the dark tunnel, smoke lingers from the fireball. They can hear the crashing of the waves from outside.

There's a bright amber light out in the Shadowfell that illuminates the beach.

Diath notes that this is twice now that Evelyn has saved them. The heroes take a short rest.

Strix prays to the Morninglord. Waffles makes sad noises.

There's a creature in these tunnels. It's Death.

The Afterlife[edit | edit source]

Meanwhile, Evelyn is being tossed into the air. It is a bright, sunny morning. She begins to fall. Someone catches her. She looks into the eyes of her father. This is a memory.

Now, her dad is gone. Evelyn looks around and realizes that she's in her human form. Evelyn sees Zaress, the priestess she met in the Soulmonger. She's 40 years younger than she appeared to be previously.

Zaress is watching a boy, who is on a swingset. The kid's name is Dortimer Ankathra.

Evelyn sees that they weren't annihilated. She wonders aloud if Lathander saved them.

Zaress says that it was Evelyn who saved thousands of souls. She's heard murmurings of sainthood in association with Evelyn's name.

Zaress tells Evelyn that since she did not die a natural death, there's a path back to the natural world.

Evelyn wants to say hello to Lathander.

Zaress and Evelyn talk some more. Zaress points out that the greatest gift is not a soul. It's love.

"What is a soul without a soul mate?"

Zaress urges Evelyn not to rely entirely on Lathander. "Don't lean too far into your belief in him, as it is more important to believe in yourself."

Death[edit | edit source]

Back in the Shadowfell, the group starts following "Death". He seems to be leading them in a square path.

Paultin casts mislead, which allows him to become invisible.

Death says "I'm free". It starts to cast a spell. Strix casts counterspell and shuts it down.

"Are you Acererak?", the group asks.

"No."

"Are you death?"

"I am Death."

Death explains that it was a prisoner of the balhannoth. It explains that this Death is one of many Deaths.

The group wants him to bring back Evelyn. He says he can't do that.

Death has a couple of scrolls. It's his naughty and nice list.

Death tells them how to get out of the tunnels. They've got two choices: Go through the wall or walk around the whole path.

After some searching, Strix falls into a pit full of corpses. From the ceiling, a fresh corpse falls and lands with a splat.

Diath uses the horn of blasting to blow a hole through the wall.

Back in the afterlife, Evelyn calls upon her steed. She is delighted to see that Mourning Glory has wings! She's now a pegasus. End of session.
