Keldrith proceeded to lead us out of this Orlast as quickly as possible. It was apparent that we were not ready for the denizens of this era. We were in the middle of a warzone. Nations warring against each other because of a war that elves… my people started with dragons. What a ridiculous world this was.
His power being superior to ours, Keldrith scouted ahead several times and drew fire to himself so that we could try to proceed unnoticed across the ground. Unfortunately, we were still drawn into conflicts with creatures – Owlbears, Ogres, and also a Vrokk at the end of our trip.
Fortunately though, we ran into a future friend. The Medusa we met in the caves in the future attempted to apprehend us for her nation. Her actions seemed very hesitant. It was clear she didn’t really want to be part of this. We Xerxus removed a charm that had been placed on her by three sisters. Apparently the hags are at least this old as well. That is disturbing to consider. When we parted ways with her, we left some information about the future, in hopes it would have a positive effect like with what we did with Casen.
Keldrith led us to some Druidic standing stones and channelled power into them to send us back to the present. Our arrival landed us in the chamber we left from, with only moments past as before. It’s starting to make sense. We resolved that we needed to get more information and decided to finish our mission here. Palazzo informed us that we could call for his aid whenever we wanted, but at the effort of all of us, draining some of our power. That’s ominous and almost certainly will never happen. He did attempt to leave the room with us. Only to find that he was trapped there. Hopefully every being bound to an area when we fix everything will be able to go where they need to be.
Our efforts to save the medusa were not in vain. Apparently in this time period, she guided us here and was waiting outside the temple with all of her “children”. She indicated to us that 4127 years had passed since we met for the second-first time. We (I) did some divining with the spirits and determined she may know the passphrase to get us here via the teleporters. So, with everyone in tow, we decided to make a return to Bright and figure our move to get the animated here as quickly as possible.
