The next day rolls around, the adventurers awakened by the a loud crashing noise reverberating throughout the chamber. In enters the nameless emerald dragon and Errol from an opening in the wall, the giant creature regarding the group sternly. Around her neck is something that looks like the statue they had seen earlier, only much smaller. She motions with her head to follow her, refusing to take 'no' for an answer. Only giving them a few minutes to prepare and get their equipment ready, she urges them along, whether or not they really want to go along with it.

The passage is lit only by the virtue of on of the adventurers carrying a torch. The crystalline walls crumble to powder before the dragon's advance, then reconstruct themselves behind the group as though nothing happened. Errol tries to reassure everyone that everything will turn out okay, but he sounds slightly worried all the same.


"Here," the older dragon states once the group reaches a large yet fairly unremarkable stone disc. Not giving any instruction, the emerald dragon steps onto the disc... And completely vanishes. Errol squeaks instruction in his mother's absence, "Mommy said for me to wait here. You just step on that thing and you go somewhere far, far away."

"Oh, and good luck, everyone!" he adds after the party proceeds to do as instructed. All they see is a bright flash of light before they find themselves lagging behind the emerald dragon in another cavern blackened with soot. It takes a few hours of trekking through the craggy cave to reach an exit. The sun sits high above, indicating it's just past noon, though it's blocked out by a gathering of clouds. Their guide finishes reading something written on a scroll, which disappears into ashes.

"Now we go up. Quickly."

Yanked along by some unseen force, the party is forced into flight at an incredible speed. The wind shrieks around them as they soar up, higher and higher into the sky until they break through the lowest layer of clouds. As if they were on tethers, the party is forced to follow behind the dragon, who b

Walala, deciding that she doesn't have enough time to make herself into a black hole so she can eat the galaxy for whatever reason, hurriedly follows the others through the rift. There's still research to do, and things to blow up.

The distance to the gap seems greater than initial appearances would lead one to believe, and doesn't seem to grow any closer no matter how quickly the adventurers move toward it. It feels like hours have passed before the group finds themselves back at the tower, the sunlight just peeking over the edge of the horizon. The dragon that escorted them there is nowhere to be found, and the stone altar at the center of their previous battlefield is now a gaping hole into the empty building.

Traversing through the trapdoor and down the steps, nothing comes after the group, nothing springs out and attacks, and nothing is waiting to surprise them. Somehow, all traces of the demons infesting the place have disappeared entirely. It's another long walk, but back outside there's some activity at least. People were cautiously leaving their houses, milling about nervously in the almost empty streets. None of them show hostility or recognition towards the adventuring group. A representative of the Yuu clan, however, does walk up to them and stammer that their presence is needed at their estate immediately.

As can be expected, for doing the job they had been asked to do, the adventurers each receive a valuable set of trinkets and fineries, valuing upwards of twenty thousand gold pieces. After thanks are given, the head of the Yuu clan, Lord Huere Yuu II, then kindly asks them to be on their way. Except for Yagi, of course. He mentions that they have big plans for him. Something about "great expectations"...

It's hard to say that everyone lived "happily ever after", but, for what it's worth, the world was, at least, a better place thanks to their efforts. So it was written by the lorekeeper, and so it shall be.

Finally, just an hour away from the nearest city, the emerald dragon yelps, "There! It's over there!" and dives off the side of the ship. It furiously flaps its wings over to a large yet completely ordinary looking rock a few hundred feet away. The party drops anchor and returns to dry land again, Yagi staying behind for a few minutes to inventively use whatever resources he can to keep the ship from being taken in the meantime.

"O-okay, if I did this right, then..." Errol gives no indication as to what he did, but he stumbles on his stubby legs through the solid rock as though it weren't even there. "C-come on! And, um, don't go too far ahead!" The dragon warns, the adventurers drawn through. As soon as they go through the illusory obstacle, they find themselve in yet another cavern, this one of polished crystal. Fortunately, there is illumination from a convenient wall light. The dragon is a few feet away, pecking at the nearby wall.

Again, Errol warns,
"P-p-please wait until I, um, find the passage mommy uses. The other way's full of... Of really bad things! And traps!"

You can make a Perception check to try and find this secret passage or to see if there are indeed traps ahead. Be warned that this is a Hard DC a few levels above what you're used to.

With few options available to them, the group heads north. The stretch of dead grass continues for a few miles before stopping outside a large cave entrance. This isn't the normal path through the mountains that travelers would normally take, but there haven't been any signs of pursuit yet. The cliffs seem too steep to navigate, and there's no sign of the pedestrian path, but odds are that the road has already been overrun by the cultists.

The dark cave entrance looms ahead, like a giant mouth waiting to swallow them up in the darkness.

Not amused by the vacant posts, the knight takes the captain's hat hanging by the wheel and places it upon his helm, before manning the helm himself.

In spite of its enormous size, the ship flows smoothly downstream. There is no indication as to why it was unmanned at the time it was brought over, but the river providing its own current makes the sails unnecessary and steering easy enough that only one person need man the helm at a time. The voyage is rather slow, but with no signs of pursuit, it's much less stressful than the past few days.

The wrymling seems much happier to be out of the cave, proving to be friendly and amiable, if naive and childish. The dragon does keep mentioning its mother, though, and wondering if she is in trouble. Despite protests from some parts of the party, it claims that she knows a great deal - enough, perhaps, to help them deal with the cultists and collect their pay without any further hassle. After a few more rounds of questioning, the dissenters reluctantly agree to accompany it to its cave. If nothing else, it could provide a place to hide for a time. And, of course, the dragon does give a name to itself, and says that it is called "Errol".


The adventure continues:
