In hot pursuit of Caseal, the party emerged back outside in a small wooded clearing, where it was oddly snowing. The weather are colder as they questioned him. Before Rolan knocked him out, he revealed that Neroc, the Blood God, has brought him back from death, and he now has to obey! He also revealed Maren’s mother may still be alive, and warned the party to run. They were ambushed by the Snow Queen, one of the noble fey with divine ancestry. The party fought against this strong foe, Rolan falling and being brought back by Andra, until another fey stepped in and scared off the Snow Queen and her two giants. Unfortunately, the Snow Queen took Caseal with her!
The Queen of Witches, Nicnevin, was massive and powerful. She escorted the party back to Nys, the city named after the trickster God Nyssa, who is Nicnevin’s mother. The Queen of Witches gave a lot of information to the party about this feud between the gods. It seems as if Novv is no longer in the celestial plane, having seeing thrown out by a magical decree the Mother made for her children not to overly interfere in the lives of mortals. The party doesn’t know what he did to make this happen, but Neroc is gaining power and it seems a prophesied apocalypse has begun.
In said prophecy, it is said that a group of mortals will save the realm of the gods and all of Althon from destruction. The Queen of Witches has admitted the fey are taking sides, between Neroc and his sister, Nyssa, for the battle of Althon. Our celestial protagonists seem to be outnumbered, and Nicnevin asks the party for their help. She made a telepathic link with Delanar, and said she would eventually hear any prayers to Nyssa.
The party met Marvin the Million-Faced Man back at the Golden Sunrise, and Liyah was not impressed. He was really a doppelgänger, who tied up Rolan in the basement and impersonated him to steal valuable items from the party. In the middle of the night, this fake Rolan was discovered, chased, and found out!
Evanil rushed to Nys after a message from Lash about all this hubbub going on, including the fact that NicNevin is his cousin—as the party discovered Evanil is the son of Kassar, God of War. After love and sex, the larger party discussed all this stuff and decided to watch Count Duval’s meeting with Marco, who had gone after Andra despite Duval ordering that sector of the Unseen Hand to leave the party alone. The party plus Evanil booked it over to this meeting spot, with Evanil hell-bent on revenge. He contacted several of his companions to join the party for this confrontation.
Just as they reached this spot, a bright light blinded the party as a star fell from the heavens and crashed to a mountaintop nearby. The telepathic link Between Delanar and Nicnevin revealed that her mother, Nyssa, had been thrown out of the celestial plane.
Between confronting and battling Marco and the traitors of the Unseen Hand, stopping mass slaughter in Nys, and rushing to the aid of Nyssa and Nicnevin, the party is short on time! What will they decide to do, and what will be the consequences os the events they ignore?
