In the first adventure of the campaign thus far dubbed “The Fey”, two separate groups of adventurers met up to do battle with a group of drow.
Anya and Ire, sent from Threysos to investigate the source of a strange surge in aberrant energies, met up with a second party shortly after their arrival from Threysos. The second group was sent by the local elven lord, Lord Arahn Shallir, to put a stop to kidnappings perpetrated by a drow tribe living nearby. After teaming up to defeat some drow scouts, the two groups decided that working together would be best. They journeyed into the drow lair.
Inside, they found the drow in the midst of some sort of ceremony conducted by an illithid (also known as a mind flayer), a creation of Agshasa Muren. The ceremony seemed centered around a hunk of a strange, dark rock. The rock was also found in the necklaces of each of the drow. Upon examination, this substance appeared to be radiating aberrant energy.
Unfortunately, at the first sign of trouble, the mind flayer grabbed the rock and teleported away, causing a cave in to block pursuit. The party was able to defeat the drow and rescue several prisoners, but were not able to gleen anything more about the strange stone.
The group returned to Shallir with the captives. Anya and Ire used their scroll to contact Captain Hiyara, their superior in Threysos, for new orders. They were instructed to remain in Aegir, and try to find out more about the mind flayer and the mysterious stone. So the two groups decided to continue their time together, at least for a little while longer.
