Evening of Day 9
Dessel the Necromonger is irritated to learn that our heroes have destroyed many of his Prime Material contacts, including Kalerel. He calls on his last remaining loyal subject, Sylvya, to gain allies and await his command.
At that point Dessel manifests in the room, as he recognizes Boreali as the son of his lost love, Vanamere. Confused, Boreali tries to find out more about his mother. All the group learns is that Dessel is trying to bring Vanamere back from the dead. That her spirit is still trapped inside of her tower.
Boreali swears to get to his mothers spirit first and set her free. With that a battle begins, and Sovelis and il-Kash vanish…
Tor and Kara do a massive amount of damage, and after a quick faux death, Dessel reappears with a zombie Beholder and begins an assault that includes a “dominance” over Tor. Though Boreali couldn’t heal anyone within Dessel’s necro aura, he manages to help Tor come to his senses.
As Dessel is close to death, he swears that he will bring his love back from the dead. With that Boreali, Tor, and Kara let loose a fury of assaults that render’s Dessel into a pile of ash.
Sovelis and il-Kash reappeared after Dessel was gone, and the group rested up in the courtyard of Shadowfell Keep with the two Winterhaven guards and the three rescued citizens.
Though the group discovered an amulet that must be cleansed of it’s corruption, Boreali’s only thoughts are of getting back to Cloak Wood, and to the tower of his twice-birth.
