The group meets at the Enraged Panda Tavern where the familiar aroma of flour, pan-seared noodles, cooked pork and mutton drift upon the air. A carpeted area near the performers is filled with several seated patrons indulging from hookas. The amalgam of cultural melodies meld together in the form of the plucked Komuz, the bowed Erhu, and the drummed Tablas which creates a comforting fusion of sound found in few places in all of Faerun.

31st Session Summary - part 2
The adventures of Sevrin and Xaehyd

1st Nightal - The Year of Shadows 1358 DR

After having continental breakfast at the Leeke Towers, Elara guides Galvin, Sevrin and Xaehyd to the Dreamglade. They follow the intricate steps of Elara through the menhir circle and soon find themselves back in the familiar environment of the Sunglade within the Yuirwood. Sevrin notices movement through the thick forest canopy and goes to investigate but finds only a black feather.

They decide to stop in Relkath's Foot to receive the gift that Leokas mentioned. During the eight hour walk, the forest itself appears to watch them. They arrive at nightfall and make their way to the Taproot for the night.

2nd Nightal

Leokas presents to them, a llama named Jenny as a thank you from the citizens on behalf of Labelas. Leading their newly acquired llama, the trio begins the journey northward, through the Yuirwood to Velprintalar.

4th Nightal

Arriving in the capital city of Velprintalar, Xaehyd suggests that they pay a visit to the home of their friend, Zair the cartographer. Upon arrival at the residence, they find it unoccupied and as they peer in through the window, it becomes apparent that the apartment has not been occupied for some time. Sevrin attempts to pick the lock on the door for several minutes before realizing that the door is not locked. Upon entering, they find scorch marks on the inside of the door and floor. A through search reveals that Zair had written a note to the Simbul, detailing a possible slave escape route from Thay that he had mapped. Upon Zair's table, the outline of parchment that was once there could also clearly be seen. After a search of the home they decide to sleep there for night.


5th Nightal
Galvin decides to stay behind at Zair's home and investigate further while Sevrin and Xaehyd continue onwards to Telflamm. As luck would have it, The Sea Hag is in port and, cashing in on an old debt, are granted free passage to Telflamm.

9th Nightal
Sevrin and Xaehyd arrive in Telflamm and begin their training. Sevrin is nearly kicked out of the Shadowmasters' Guild, again, when he remembers hearing some news in Almorel that could be of value to the guild. Once relaying the information that he heard, he is given an extension on his dues until such time that he can bring back evidence of horselord activity on the Golden Way.

31st Session Summary - part 1
The Feast of Winter - The Year of Shadows 1358 DR

Xaehyd and Sevrin find themselves in a small cave with opens upon a vast mountainous landscape. A dome of crackling blue energy can be seen half of a mile away. They are soon greeted by Elara and the others who accompany them through the teleport circle and in to the city of Evereska.

Xzar, excited to see his friends eagerly shows them the powers of the mythal. Sevrin attunes to the Everskan Mythal and is soon flying along with Xzar. Elara then conveys to the group that she is giving a speech at the temple of Labelas Enoreth. She hands out several program guides that she has collected which detail the various activities that are occurring to celebrate the holiday.

Wyatt, Sevrin, Nix, and Xaehyd accompany Elara to the temple while Roslyn, Pickle, Jarna, and Sevrin make their way to the Hall of the High Hunt.

The Temple of Labelas Enoreth

The group heading to the temple cross a bridge over the Singing Waters river and emerge upon a stand of enormous weirwood trees. Similar in appearance to giant oak trees, weirwoods are branchless at their bases with tops that expand outward like an umbrella. They begin to hear conversations which appear to originate from the trees above them and as they turn their gazes skyward, the temple of Labelas Enoreth built amidst the branches of the mighty weirwoods is revealed. A complex series of rooms are connected via vine bridges with appear to have been grown from the branches of the trees themselves. Elves can be seen walking from structure to structure. A few other elves are standing at the base of the central tree and upon closer inspection they realize that the tree is mostly hollow. An opening in to the tree holds a spiral staircase serving as an access point to the temple itself.

They proceed to make their way in to the central chapel where the last rays of sunlight streamed in through stained glass windows and reflected upon the polished wood floor. A massive golden sundial inlaid in the floor is bathed in the colorful hues of the dying light. The front half of the chapel is in the form of a hollowed out bowl with descending semi-circular rows of seating. The back half of the chapel is a stage which appears to levitate in mid-air. Upon the stage stands Elara accompanied by several elves dressed in light-gray robes of wispy, gossamer construction, which shine with deep reds, purples, and oranges where touched by the sunlight. Around their necks they wear semi-circular golden disks carved to resemble the setting sun. Wyatt, Sevrin, Nix and Xaehyd all choose to sit in the audience as the event commences.

Elara pauses before starting her speech and looks around the room. Her gaze wanders across the rows of seated elves, up the ceiling, and out towards the windows, an uncomfortable silence follows before she begins speaking:

"Hello Quessir, animals, trees, and all other intelligent life forms," Elara smiles and the faces of the robed figures standing near Elara take on a bemused look.

"As you know, my friends and I have been wandering across this beautiful land of ours... I do have a suggestion, you should let your trees grow wild. Don't try to manipulate them." Elara jumps a little as she is nudged by one of the robed figures.

"As I was saying, we've been searching for the menhir circles. Oh let me back up. We were contacted by Labelas in the Sunglade. He's in a dark place right now, but not to worry, I have complete confidence that we'll be able to bring him back. Well not to bring him back here but, you know, to bring him back to his home. It's only natural for us to have homes. I miss my home. Maybe I'll go back there." Elara's speech abruptly stops as she day dreams about her homeland.


"I've spoken to the Seldarine on Evermeet and they've told me that there are eight circles, the sunglade, obviously, then the mirrorglade. Oh yes, speaking of the Llewyrr elves, we have copies of some of their artifacts that Labelas said we could borrow. Not to worry, they've all been returned. There arn't any Llewyrr elves here, are there?" Elara looks around nervously.

"Where was I? Oh yes, the glades. There's also the Coralglade under the sea. I haven't been there personally but I hear there's a lovely little Nixie society which lives there. And of course there's the Dreamglade." One of the priests whispers something in to her ear before she continues.

"Right. There are still four glades left to find. The Wyllowglade, the Sandglade, the Frostglade, and the Bloodglade. The Wyllowglade sounds quite nice doesn't it! Once we find these glades then everything should be back to normal. Right?" The priest again whispers something to Elara.

"Oh, I should introduce my friends." Elara points out Wyatt, Sevrin, Nix and Xaehyd, increasing their recognition throughout the city.

"Someone has started a rumor that we're the Fellowship of the Circle. I guess that's a good name. I don't know. Maybe we should be the fellowship of the semi-circle, since, you know, Labelas. If you have any questions someone will be around and happy to answer them. Thank you."

Elara finished speaking and those who had purchased VIP badges were invited to stay and speak with the members of the fellowship. Sevrin spoke with Leokas Galeen, a half-elf from the village of Relkath's Foot. He invited the fellowship to stop in the village and receive a gift on their behalf. Meanwhile...

The Hall of the High Hunt

Roslyn, Pickle, Jarna, and Sevrin arrive at the base of a great open air pavilion encircled by a tightly packed colonnade of ancient shadowtop trees. The grove of trees extends outwards creating narrow, spoke-like paths which lead away from the pavilion. At the center of the pavilion is a melodic fountain of silver waters whose beauty is both captivating and soothing. The air within the pavilion smells of moss and sweet water. The shadowtops form two concentric rings around the pavilion. Each tree has been carefully grown to form one or more natural hollows within its trunk at various elevations, and looking up you see, vine rope bridges threaded through each tightly packed grove to connect the chambers in the heart of each tree. At ground level, roots, rocks, earth, and plants are woven into near impregnable defensive fortifications. Earthen chambers are hewn from the dirt beneath the grove, nestled among the tightly woven root structures.

A small line of elves had formed near the fountain in front of a broad-shouldered, young, muscular, elven woman who appeared to be handing out something.

Jarna's presence in the line with her newly acquired antlered helmet caused some distress to the other elves in the line and the group quickly made their way to the front. Jarna attempted speaking to elven lady but she only spoke elvish so Roslyn acted as interpreter. The group was offered a series of challenges which could be entered for 1 gold per challenge. During the translation, Jarna thought that there was a bone crushing challenge but it was actually a bone carving challenge.

Roslyn, Sevrin, and Jarna entered the archery competition, Jarna entered the axe throwing competition, and both Roslyn and Jarna entered the "bone crushing" competition. Roslyn was the only one to win a prize, a token, for 1st place in bone carving.

Roslyn, Nix, and Xaehyd all attended the Mystic Rites of the Luminous Cloud during deepnight while the others returned to the Leeke Towers.

Mystic Rites of the Luminous Cloud

A large crowd of elves has gathered on a hill just across the river from the Soaring Towers. A stone circle surrounds the crown of the hill with a serene wind-instrument ballad that can be heard drifting across the landscape. A crisp mild air circulates gently within the mythal as it brushed across their face and arms. Several of the elves have already entered in to a deep meditative state when the group arrives and they catch the faintest hint of jasmine perfume from a nearby participant. In the center of the circle, leading the ceremony, is a feminine elf with long blue hair that has been pulled back from her rounded face, small dark blue gemstone earrings which match the color of her eyes, a silvery-white diaphanous gown and a silver lace sash. She begins speaking in elvish.

"Blessed Sehanine let the mystery of the moonlight be revealed tonight."

A clear bell rings out across the city and silence unfolds like a curtain in the night. The ever-present glow of lantern light from the city dim enhancing the elves darkvision. The glow from the mythal itself vanishes to reveal moonlight which aligns with the capstone arch of the circle. Looking up, the clear night sky reveals a tail-shaped constellation of heavenly bodes, known as the tears of Selûne, that trail behind the moon itself. The moonlight appears to form a pale mantle upon the shoulders of every elf present. Cold air begins to settle on the hilltop as Roslyn closes her eyes and her consciousness is overtaken by a memory.

As her consciousness returns to the present a nimbus of light begins to rise up in to the sky and dart across the heavens before returning back in to the circle and sinking in to the earth. Silence. The glow from the mythal and the city lights return. The voices of the followers of Sehanine crescendo in to song, instruments begin playing, and elves start dancing as the festival concludes.

Well after midnight the remainder of the group arrives back to the inn, the Leeke Towers, where they are met by the smiling face of the inn-keeper.

"Welcome back. Don't worry we have around the clock service here to cater to your every fetish. I'll be going to bed now. I suggest you do the same." He moves towards the front entrance, locks the door, and dims the lantern on the front desk before heading in to a door behind the desk.

1st Nightal - The Year of Shadows 1358 DR

Waking late from the previous night's activities the group proceeds downstairs for breakfast. Elara looks at the group and begins to speak

"So, if you don't mind I think it's best to only perform one circle invocation per day. I'm tired of everyone getting lost and I know we can avoid that by using them less. It might delay us a day or two but there could be worse places to have to spend an extra day."

Everyone agrees and Elara uses the circle to take Sevrin and Xaehyd to the Sunglade.

2nd Nightal

Elara uses the circle to take Jarna to the Moonshae while Wyatt, Roslyn, Nix, and Xzar remain in Evereska.

30th Session Summary
30th of Uktar - The Year of Rogue Dragons 1368 DR

Jarna arrives in Evereska, confused by the peculiarities of the city and its mithal. She follows Elara in to the city and settles in to a tavern that serves rabbit stew while Elara retrieves Xzar and sends a message to Nix and Roslyn. They decide to try and find lodging for the night. Jarna's reluctance to take advantage of the mythal's spider walk property causes them to look for alternate lodging. All of the inns are

Eventually they make their way to the Leeke Towers, an establishment run by Mr. and Mrs. Leeke. The inn keeper is agressively patronizing to his guests and as Jarna settles in to a room for a nap, Mr. Leeke knocks on her door to check in on her. Later, she is awoken by the sound of loud banging as Mr. Leeke is hanging up a picture on the wall. Mrs. Leeke invites the group to attend a special dinner for the Festival of the Moon much to Mr. Leeke's malcontent.
