Incidents

Session 38-2

Pygmy

As you were resting a small creature came walking towards you. A bit curious but mostly annoyed that you were brining heat into this most holy Ice. Upon inspection you noticed the small creature's breath did not form any mist. After making introductions you learned that the Ice dragons were considered holy, Ice's favoured. And that the mystics you were seeking you could find high on top a mountain. The description of the mystics made Zarrah shiver, Gith mystics by the sound of it. Unlike the dragons Ice didn't like them and with Zarrah sharing the disgust the pygmy agreed to take you to the mountain's foot. Without saying anything directly you had made the pygmy assume you were going to drive them off.

Session 38-3

The lone mountain

After taking you on top the ice at the base of the mountain the pygmy bid you farewell. Looking out over the glacier a lone mountain dominated the landscape. Going towards it, two rows of uneven pillars formed a several hundred feet wide corridor. As you climbed higher and circled the mountain you noticed these pillar continuing on the other side of the mountain as well. With the wind howling around you you came upon a curious piece of ice wall with a chamber of the other side. Sensing your goal on the other side you shattered the wall with pitons and hammer.

Session 38-4

The mystics

After breaking into the chamber you were welcomed by three figures in long hooded robes. As they revealed themselves and welcomed you Zarrah's worst fear became realized. They were Gith, or rather Githzerai. Acknowledging that you might me hungry after your long clib they offered you a warming and filling stew. Telling them the details of your mission they reluctantly agreed that the course of action would be necessary. To their knowledge your best bet at acquiring silver cords would be to infiltrate a base of their marauding kin, the Githyanki, and steal from them. But to do that you would have to travel to Astral plane, the realm of the gods, through the Dreamlands. And they would help you to do so.

Session 39-1

With the mystics

Tired from your long journey across the northern lands, through frozen lands and ascending a mountain you spent a few days with the Guthzerai before starting your preparations to travel to the Astral sea through the Dreamlands. During the time you became aware of pygmies skirting the base of the peak, curious if you had been defeated or what your were up to.

Session 39-2

Dreams

To find silver cords you had to get to a Githyanki outpost in the Astral Sea, to get to there you had to go from the Dreamlands and to enter the Dreamlands you had to dream. Putting your mortal bodies in the hands of the mystics you began exploring your Dreamlands. In the Dreamlands you found reality to not be fixed but those of strong will could conjure forth what they so desired. And it all mattered on perception. Some things were more permanent, those things considered to be what they are becomes fixed as that. With a basic understanding of the Dreamlands you set your eyes on the Githyanki outpost.

Session 39-3

The Githyanki outpost

Focusing your will on the silver cords and visualising yourself in their vicinity you projected your astral self to the outpost. You found yourself near a storeroom where a Githyanki wielding a magnificent Silver Sword was directing it's subordinates to get things stored away properly. After a short scuffle the sword-wielder leaped out the now three-walled room and started gathering reinforcements to bring to bear on you. Quickly locating the silver cords and whatever you could gather you hastily made your way back into the material plane. But in his looting frenzy Anton left something of his self behind.

Session 39-4

Sisters in need

With your ill-gotten gains you bid farewell to the mystics so you could get to Vecna as quickly as possible to hand over the cords. If there was something you ever were certain of it was that the Githyanki would go to great lengths to reclaim their cords. But it was not to be. As you arrived at Borderlands you smelled fire and smoke in the air and the passage to Vecna's lair was nowhere to be found, the pocket plane had closed it's connection. Making way to the surface you found Borderlands Keep under siege, the sisters exhausted and tired and hiding in the forest outside the walls a horde of trolls (and worse).
