And that was a mistake. We headed to the lake. As we approached the edge, we found the gathering of fey. There were many of various shapes and sizes. Some were playing music, others dancing around the fires, others eating and drinking. It was a grand celebration, ignoring the plight facing all of them.
They used their fey magic on us as soon as we came near, forcing some of us to dance or become gluttons. I didn’t catch much in this time, only that there was a dryad called “The Oaken Lady” that was supposed to come and she’s the only one who could really speak to us. The entire ordeal was incredibly frustrating, and it is the last time I will put my trust in any fey.
Shortly after the dryad showed up, she was attacked from the surrounding wilderness by dark fey. A large thorn pierced her chest and became a creature that burrowed inside her. A very dark goat fey appeared to be the leader, accompanied by some goat women and many dark sprites. I waved my sword in a ridiculous manner trying to hit a sprite when the leader used magic to force me to go home. I don’t know what happened after I left.
I was attacked by something in the darkness while I ran away and awoke to Gilroy holding me down. Then I fell asleep again.

We didn’t waste any time this morning and went back to the site of the attack. From there, we followed the trail of corruption left by the dark fey. After a few hours, we found a clearing. The trees look like they were destroyed. The dark goat man was sleeping between some large rocks.
Gilroy and I snuck around from either side to attack him. I signaled for the attack and Arius shot lightning which only seemed to wake up the beast up. And as soon as he awoke, he used his dark magic to make me run away again. Before I ran, I was able to land a parting blow, but my sword had no effect on him. Jaden used his magic to have the thorny plants entangle us, but I was able to evade the plants and run away. Once again, I don’t know what happened while I was gone, but my friends defeated it and I was finally able to free my mind of its influence.
