After the Rescue

- Following the party’s return to Heldren with Lady Argentea Malassene and the captured members of Rohkar’s Raiders, the group undergoes a slight alteration.
- Lialda and Mouse both leave the group, intent on finding making sure their own homes are not threatened in the same way as the village. In their place come Ronan Maori, half-orc air druid, and Breida Hawthorne, human fighter.
- Additionally, Mairdeth Flamespar has a spiritual awakening, now imbued with the clerical powers of Cayden Cailean.
- Returning to the trail to hunt down the portal causing the summer snow, the party fights a few frost skeletons, likely created by Rohkar, and a pair of animated trees.
- They also discover the body of Dryden Kepp, a local hunter who had been tracking a giant white weasel in the forest after the snow began to fell
- Entering a clearing, the party chases the ghost of a small child through a maze of ice boulders before coming upon a wooden hut with a creepy doll with one gem eye and one mirrored eye. It attacks them, but they subdue it and take the gem, which held the soul of the dead child. The release the soul, as well as ending a haunt in the ice maze by burning down the hut.
- Quick thinking by the druid Ronan saves them from Kepp’s weasel, and the party is able to slip by it without any conflict.
- Nearing the portal, the party beds down for the night, but are awoken by an ambush from Izoze, one of Irrisen’s lieutenants, and her companion air elemental.
