Memory is the Key

Before going to sleep i decided to meditate and search my memories for any that were not my own. When the Devourer was connected to my mind when i abruptly severed the connection i believe some of his memories got trapped in my head. After a bit of searching through my memories i did actually find one of Acereraks memories.

The memory was him watching Alexander (David Mitra) watching a familiar face through a crystal ball. That familiar face was Sir Vadam Naroosian, someone I met nearly 100 years ago. He was chained and being torchered. I was able to tell that they were using the spell Liquid pain on him to extract the pain and use it for their potions. If the history books are true then he has gone through much worse for he is a strong individual, though no one should ever go through what is being done to him.

Even though the room he was in was dark i was able to tell that the building they are in is made out of wood found in the swamps. So my guess is they are located somewhere in that area. Now we need to only finish up stuff here in Argos and head down to the Many Miles Swamp and help my old friend out.

After meditation i began to pray. I was praying to Phiarlan asking why he chose me and what he wanted me to do, but to my surprise my prayers were answered by…John. He talked to me for a bit and said that he did in fact die by the hands of Virgil and he is now a angel of sorts. He told me that Phiarlan wanted him to answer my prayer and basically tell me to keep on fighting. Not really the answer i was looking for, since it is very generic. He also told me that he will be at the swamps, so we can meet up there.

Events of The World: Rebirth
John's Account

The last thing I remember was killing a large horde of orcs then putting on a necklace. Once I had dawned it upon my neck the world grew cold and almost distant. It is not a feeling I am really able to describe, but then I found Cheliax and remembered that he can control negative energy. I figured that his powers would make me feel better. After he released a burst of negative energy, for a moment, I felt wonderful. Alas, though, the feeling was fleeting and I once again felt horrid. Then my party mates and I found a cave just beyond the fort the orcs were hold up in and low and behold THERE WAS AN ENTIRE NEGATIVE ENERGY FIELD.

Now this is where my memory becomes very foggy, but I shall try to recall the events. We went into this negative energy field, and found some rotten peach trees with the great Caelthysar and some undead zombies guarding them? A battle soon ensued and Virgil was hit by a black ray from Cael and then became almost feral. He immediately lost the ability to speak and then soon after ate one of the rotting fruits. The fruit did not seem to change him, but I suspect that there are some effects. The fight continued and the last thing I remember was Cael looking at me then a black light.

After that moment there are only flashes of light and smells. Oh the smells are very vivid still in my mind. there was rotting fruit, then the smell of rotting blood, and finally the smell of blood. I remember blood and pain. A stabbing pain is my chest. Then I awoke laying down in a field. My mental faculties have also returned and I remember everything beyond this point very clearly. An absolutely beautiful field with mountains and in the distance, a giant battlefield, and castle. I got up and headed to the battlefield. There was a gnomish man fighting a giant dragon. I attempted to help him by attacking the beast. The creature was very fast and acted before I would raise my sword and spewed dragon fire at me. The fire almost knocked me unconscious but I was still standing afterwards. As I was recovering the gnomish man I was helping put his spear through my chest.

Again I awake prone, but this time I was in a bed. Outside of the room I could hear footsteps, a lot of them. I walked out of the room and saw a stream of people in the hallway all walking the same way. Not knowing what to do I followed suit. In the hallway, what do you know, I find the little gnomish man. Immediately I threw him against a wall and asked him why he put the spear threw my chest. He told me that we were in Ysengard and all about what that meant, which I shall keep to myself for the time being. I yearned to go back to the material plane and help destroy Acerak, so after a time I went to talk to the deity of the realm Cord.

In a very fancy trophy room I met with a halfling man who was cleaning up. The building I was directed to was Cord’s abode. I talked with the halfling a while and he questioned what I wanted and I told him that I simply wanted to go back and help fight Acerak. He told me that Cord also wanted this; to make things simple the halfling I had been talking to was Cord himself in disguise. The shortest version of this I can write is that in the end Cord sent me back to the material plane in a new body so that Acerak would not know. I now have an envoy to Cord who is a Lantern Archon name Greygee. He and myself shall go to the swamplands and find out some information on whats happening in the swamplands. If Aceraks followers are there we will find them.

New friends and echos of old

As we were walking out of the cave i talked with Chelliax on how we can possibly fix the area with the negative energy plane and the effects on John and Virgil. He told me only powerful spells like a Wish or a Miracle might work, but a lot of those people who can cast such things are hard to get a hold of.

We fought the other troll that was holding the rest of the workers hostage. With all of us hitting him we took him down in no time and freed the hostages. John used his Necromancer knife to turn the troll into his own skeleton buddy but Virgil continued to attack it. Since their intelligence is now animal like there was very little way to control them or talk sense into them so eventually John, while riding his troll and Virgil still chasing and trying to stab it, ran off.

The rest of us got into the carriage and headed on our way to Argos. On our way we ran into another traveler heading to Argos. She asked if she could ride with us there, i told her sure and to hope into the carriage. she told us her name is Irya and she is a sorcerer, and the reason she is heading to Argos is to study in their great library. We continued on our way.

We then ran into another traveler heading to Argos. I offered him to ride with us for it will be safer instead of traveling alone. This travelers name is Ravasaadi Nightshade, he is a paladin and he is traveling to Argos to search for someone.

All of us stopped and made camp for the night. We found out that Ravasaadi and Irya are married to eachother when Irya got out of the carriage and Ravasaadi ran over to her and gave her a big long kiss. after this slightly awkward moment we all sat and chatted for a bit. As we were all chatting someone came up and poked me on the shoulder, it frightened the heck out of me. Like really, you dont sneak up on someone in the night and poke them in the shoulder, it might not end well. Luckily though he meant no harm, he was merely interested in what species i was cause i’m blue. we asked what he was doing out here and he said he was heading to Argos to help the king. I told him that a few of us were doing the same thing and he is welcome to join us. we all settled back down but just as i was about to go to sleep a voice came from the fire yelling for Kern in Deer. Since Kern wasnt here i answered and said that Kern isnt here. The spirit was confused at first and so was i, He was very frantic so once he realized i didnt know what was going on he calmed down a bit to explain. Apparently Kern is dead and is now in the Beast realm (is that right Dylan? i know its beast something) causing trouble. The old phrase “where there is smoke there is fire” sums up what it is like knowing Kern. The spirit, who i gather is related to Chadwicks somehow, was sent to try to contact Kern but instead got me, and since i am not an outsider he asked if i could help. Kern is going about his activist ways and rebelling against the idea to make a bridge that connects all the planes of heaven together, and the spirit wants us to try to stop him, and in return if we do, we will be granted a wish. Which is something i could use right now. I agreed to help.

After a nights rest we started back to on our way to Argos. As we got closer i heard their national anthem playing and i thought to myself they are either celebrating or morning. At the front gates we noticed that they were open and the town was in celebration, for the King has finally awoken from his comma. I found this strange. While i went to find the guard the others went and enjoyed the festivities, i would have gone but i had important matters to attend to. I found the guard i first talked to and he told me that the latest batch of peaches has seemed to do the trick, and now the king is all better. I Headed back to my carriage to sort some things out.

I Remember being told that the more recent batches of peaches were lacking in color and becoming more sickly as they were being brought to Argos before the shipments completely stopped a few weeks ago. Just coming from Merchantstone i know that the peaches have been soaking in a negative energy plane to the point where they are no longer safe to eat. if that negative energy started pouring in around the time the peaches started turning sickly then most likely it wasnt as powerful for the workers didnt think much of it until it became powerful enough to turn people into zombies . I theorize that as the Negative energy field started to get stronger Acererak or an enemy of the king Sent in the Cleric to take control of the situation. The cleric gave all the orcs the Necklace that reversed their energy making them like undead but not actually undead. This allowed him to have better control/influence over them which he used to take the workers prisoner so no one could warn anyone of what is happening. My guess is they continued the deliveries for a short while before stopping them because they delivered all that they needed to in order to carry out their plan. After observing Virgil eat one of the bad peaches i noticed he seemed to act different, and shouting “get off my land” i assume the peaches, not only being full of negative energy, are also cursed. Which if this is the case then the people taking care of the king could of fed him these bad peaches. With this powerful King most likely under careful watch given his condition it would be hard for anybody to get close to him to do anything. So the next thing to do would be to infect the only thing being fed to him. The peaches. them being the only thing keeping the king alive the attendents would have no choice but to feed them to him. If they fed him enough or fed him some from a cursed batch then it would of cursed him. Depending on what this curse of effect exactly does it could allow the ability for Acererak or quite possibly the kings brother, to access his mind or control him. With a powerful paladin who could pose a threat under their control they would be able make him work for them or lead people astray as they do evil deeds that go unnoticed. If i am right then that means the king is still in danger. I will need to find more evidence but i think it is to much of a coincidence for this to happen with everything else going on.

Meeting an old acquaintance and finding the peaches

We went to the party that was thrown in our honor. We mingled with the guest and enjoyed some much needed relaxation, after a while the Queen showed up, gave a little speech, then gave us gifts. She didn’t seem to want to be there at the party or enjoying herself so she left shortly after the gifts were given.

After the party we hopped on our new carriage and headed to Argos city to figure out why the shipments of peaches has halted. On our way there we ran across someone I met when i first began this journey. Chelliax. He was being chased by lions. we helped stop the lions, i one shoted one with my crossbow, it was pretty cool. Once we defeated the lions we began to talk to him to find out what he is doing here. He said he was on his way to Merchantstone to take care of some business. He wasn’t going to say much more cause he didnt think we would be interested in the politics of it all, but i insisted and he continued to say no. Then John threatened him with his sword and Virgil pulled out his sword to threaten John and things started getting crazy. Luckily no one else was hurt by the time things settled down but it is apparent now that John no longer trusts Virgil, i too am starting to wonder about this Guard Chief from Cealthyr. Chelliax ended up telling us that he his heading there to look into a matter of a negative energy shroud or something along those lines, but essentially Acererak wants to cause destruction of some sort there. I don’t fully trust him but like the old saying goes, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. It will be beneficial if we stay in contact with him in case we need him, the more allies the better.

We reached Argos only for the guards to tell us that we shouldn’t go in because the people are rioting. I managed to have them tell us what is going on and how we can help and they told us that the shipment of peaches has stopped coming and they don’t know why. They sent us to Merchant stone to find out why so we can hopefully solve the problem. We wished them luck with the towns people and headed on our way to the peaches. Once we reached the fort we stopped just outside the rocky pass, Virgil hopped out of the carriage and climbed the rocky wall to get a better view. He never came back down so we just decided to go through the pass. once through the pass we were met by some Orcs in a fort tower asking what we were doing here. We told them we were there for the peaches and why the shipments stopped. they told us everything was under control and there is nothing we should worry about. I noticed that these guys werent acting like orcs normally would and as soon i was about to say something else to try to get us in, John insulted them and started some hostile action. Next thing i know they are throwing javelins at us and my carriage. We started to fight back and then the chief came down and hit my cart. Liliana or John took him down, i thought of this as a great opportunity to find out more of what is going on here, so i went and brought him into the carriage. As the fighting persisted i was hoping to find a way to cure him and find out what is going on.

I had to halt my research and go save john though cause he was going to die if i didn’t. i told him to fall back to the carriage and we fell back to a safe distance. i found out that the necklace that all the Orcs were wearing was what caused them to act the way they do. So John decided to put it on, we found out that it changes a beings positive energy to negative energy, so not only can i no longer heal him, he is depressed and there is no way we can fix it without some powerful expensive spells.

Virgil mopped up the rest of the Orcs and met back up with us, we found chelliax in a well and brought him up, John took all of his stuff including his clothes and started running off with him. i got him back and redressed, and we awoke him. John once again began hostilities, and threatened him causing tensions to rise. After a three way battle we got everyone to calm down and Chelliax to heal John.

Everyone but me headed into the cave shrouded in negative energy (also Virgil put on the necklace), i scouted out one of the other buildings that held more hostages and a troll. Shortly after they headed to the cave, Chelliax returned to me and asked how i can handle those two, and i told him i have no idea. He went into a room to pray and came back with a potion that made me immune to the effects of negative energy so i can come help. So i drank it and headed into the cave with them. When we rounded one of the corners we saw the garden of peach trees along with a lot of zombies and one Ceal. We had a pretty tough battle but luckily we killed everyone, but also we sustained some damage, well a few of us sustained some brain damage. Now we have to figure out how to fix the peaches and the brain damaged companions.

Events of the World: Losing Control
John's Account

Vakarian Bornstellar, an interesting being with a… different view on the world. He had a plan to disconnect the devourer from our minds. Samsarans past lives are somewhat remembered after rebirth so he is able to relive some of his past memories. Using this ability Vakarian thought he could overload the devourer with thoughts and feelings with the help of circle magic. I have, through my studies, heard of it being used to increase a mages power nearly TENFOLD. So, after we had all assembled we began the ritual; each person in the circle focusing their own magics on the circle leader, Vakarian. Once we had focused all of our power he began using his abilities. After it began we could all hear and see, clear as day, the devourer. I, myself, could feel his evil aura draining the happiness from my own thoughts; this THING is pure evil. Through this NOW STRONGER connection we have made with the devourer he was able to CAST A SPELL ON ME. Once the spell was cast I blacked out for a few moments as I was fighting his control.

When I regained conscious control over my body I was rushing towards Vakarian, sword drawn and ready to swing; and then darkness. The next thing I remember is hearing the devourers voice who named himself Acerak. Though i was not conscious yet I was able to talk to him, further proof he was inside my mind. He was beginning to give me orders. The orders were to head north and meet up with his… companions. (I assume they are also of the undead variety) I did not like these orders because it would put me far away from my current mission, which is in Argos City. So, to prevent this, I tried to persuade Acerak that it would be more useful to him that he have me kill off my current comrades. I told him that he was a fool if he doesn’t think that Vakarian posses a threat to him; however minuscule. After insulting such a… deity he decided to put my mind through a torturous murder of myself. I felt EVERYTHING that happened as if were really happening. The pain was agonizing, but I made it through; to Acerak’s surprise. After watching me endure his mental attack he was quite impressed with my sturdy fortitude, so much so he decided to “award” me with gifts to kill my comrades. Given to me were; a new spell which causes those that have the misfortune to fall prey to, to spew acid from the eyes and a knife that turns anyone killed by it into a skeleton under the control of the wielder of the blade.

Finally, I awaken and hear his voice again in my mind. “More blessings for you my death knight.” I then become completely invisible, and search out Vakarian. I find him in a church and attack. After a few blows he recieved help from a priest which ultimately saved his life. Vakarian was also able to eventually free me from the bonds of the devourer. Now we head to a party in our honor and then Argos City to see about some peaches.

Some new theories

After reading through the book on Acererak i received and some thinking about what Acererak said when we talked to him i have come up with some new theories.
First of i was mistaken in my last entry about him wanting to consume the Weave to live forever, He already has the power to do that so it would be pointless.

If he is believed to be the essence of evil then his possible reason to go after the Weave is to drain it of its life force just because at this point he has probably done all he can in this realm and plans to move into another realm of reality or new greater level of existence which he might need the Weave to complete. By either reaching a new reality or level of existence he would begin his quest for knowledge and ever expanding his power, ultimately quite possibly becoming the universe and time itself, for that would be the highest level of existence.. Either way it will not be good for us if he gets control of the Weave.

(will add to this later)

A battle of life and death

We were able to get members of the Dancing Sword and guardsmen to follow us to Shanedon to fight Vestus and his undead army. With a fighting force about 125 strong we were able to defend Shanedon against the undead, Through the plans I, and with some help from John, were able to keep the remaining citizens safe and take down Vestus, there was still casualties but a lot less then there would of been if we would of done nothing. Battling Vestus was a bit tough but nothing we couldn’t handle. We made it seem like all the other times he would show up and attack around sundown so he wouldn’t suspect anything, When he made his way down the street that is when me and john sprang out behind him from a building, with Liliana and Virgil in front of him and Sky on his right we had him surrounded. We took his health down but some of us were starting to struggle and things were starting to look grim, until I struck the final blow on Vestus, quite literally.

After the battle we headed back to the library where the remaining town was held up. David the Paladin thanked us greatly and told us we were in the towns debt. We headed back to Caelthyr and on the way back i told the rest of the group my plan to disconnect our souls from the Devourer, Sky and Virgil decided to ditch the cart and sleep on the side of the road (not sure why) so Liliana, john, and I continued on our way back.

Since we are running short on time we decided that John would go see Oropher, and I would talk to Chackwick to see if there is anything that could help with the my plan. He tossed me a book on Circle magic which would help me make my magic more powerful and hopefully strong enough to effect the Devourer. I studied up on it on my way to the Nightshade but i noticed a big gathering and cheering going on so I went to check it out. When i arrived i asked someone what was going on and then all of the sudden i was surrounded by fangirls after giving a few autographs, I ended up running to try to get out of there since i had really important matters to attend to. After i escaped the mob i met up with some Virgil and john and found out we were invited to a party by the queen to celebrate our victory at Shanedon in the morning.

I gathered everyone up, except Sky who decided to stay and help people in the slums, and even a few wizard guards to help with the ritual we would have to perform. everyone stood in a circle while i stood in the middle, they cast spells into the circle to make me more powerful. Once that step was done I went through my memories and accessed the memories of past lives and kept doing so to go farther and farther back and reveal as much memories as i could, then i looked in a mirror and focused those memories and feelings back into myself then put myself to sleep. The idea behind this is that since the Devourer is accessing my mind and putting me into a place called “the Tomb of Horrors” when i go to sleep to eat my soul, he has to open up part of his mind in order to connect with mine. Since his mind is open to mine when i go to sleep I would flood his mind with 55,000 years of memories and feelings to overwhelm him and make him sever the connection between us and the rest of the group.

When i was in this dream state i saw the Devourer and where he resides in a plane of nothingness. He also talked to me, and of course he thought my attempt to sever the connection failed (or he tried to make me believe) and he also proceeded to say we are all going to die and our fighting was useless and we are all nothing, the typical arrogant evil guy stuff. He asked me questions and the like but i just kept turning the question around to annoy him and buy myself more time, which of course made him a bit angry. He eventually made john vanish out of the dream as he took control of him, by this time he was starting to realize that he was about to loose so he was expecting me to stop and help my friend but i did not, for if i did then this would all be for nothing and we probably wouldnt get another chance. i continued to push his buttons and then i said “One mistake you made was allowing a Samsaran into your mind” and with that I pushed the last and most powerful of the memories through and he yelled and severed the connection between our minds, but also at the same time he possessed john and commanded him to attack me. With all of us out of the dream state we started to attack John and try our best not to kill him, which surprisingly we were able to stop him with only a few scratches to ourselves, though john has to be taken to the high priest to remove the effects that where put on him.

After that event though i began to think and realize that i have seen and talked to the Devourer himself and survived, something that no one has probably done in a few milllenia. On top of that though i am most likely the only person in history to of accessed his mind and defeated him in consuming a soul. During those few moment when it was all happening i myself felt god like for achieving such a task. It Got me thinking though, something Acererak (the Devourer) said is that my memories were feeding him, which means he was only trying to scare me or that since our souls are who we are that means they also carry the memories with them as part of the life source because or memories are what make us us and thus that could be contributed to what helps make up or soul or make it more unique to each person. If Acererak plans on consuming the Weave and its life force then he must think that will make him live forever. What is the purpose of him doing that though? if he couldn’t handle my memories then what makes him think he can handle the Weave? This is why i believe Acererak to be foolish and underestimate the power of the Weave and what it would do to him. I also am beginning to believe that the Weave is what makes a god, a god. Obviously we are all connected and it gives us the ability to use magic along with giving us life, but since we are all connected i believe that when followers of a god cast or pray in the name of a god that is what helps provide the power to a god which in turn gives power to the person, but greatly reduced. The more followers a god has, the more powerful he can become. Or you can just steal the life force like Acererak does and also receive it from his followers. If my theory is correct about the Weave then i think i might know how to stop Acererak possibly once and for all. I will have to dig deeper into it and do more research but i still have a few plans up my sleeve.

If Acererak plans on controlling the Weave or consuming it then i believe the universe will not allow him to succeed. There is a balance that is kept between good and evil, one cannot survive long without the other, anyone who knows there history will know that there have been great wars where evil has tried to takeover, in fact one happened only a 100 years ago, gods ranging from good to neutral and even some bad all allied together and stopped the lower planes of hell from taking over, and it was all thanks to the help of a brave Paladin and a group of brave fighters. So i believe that if Acererak does succeed in taking the Weave then it would possibly kill him with the overwhelming amount of life and memories or he would eventually exaust the Weave of its life force and die out from no longer having a source to feed on, and when he dies out a new cycle will begin. Who knows, something like this could of happened in the past and we are just part of a cycle that is bound to happen again and again. It resembles the water cycle in a way. Lets say Water starts out in a puddle which would resemble the beginning of the first cycle and the main form it will go to. Over time it evaporates, this signifies death or the end of a cycle. Then finally it comes back in the form of rain, fog, snow, and sometimes acid rain, this part of the cycle stands for rebirth and sets the path that the water will follow before starting the cycle again. A Samsarans life is no different, just like water we continue in a cycle, and each time the cycle starts over we come back a bit different but are ultimately the same person. Maybe that is why we are blue and our blood is like a babbling brook, and no matter how we start each new cycle we try to reach a harmony in our lives and achieve a good balance so we may ascend. Maybe our race was formed to be a representation of the Weave and the cycle it might take. if so then just like we are the forgers of our own path and how we can control the path water takes then maybe we can also change the path of what the Weave will take.

A trip to the past to unlock some secrets

Today I along with John went to the temple/make shift hospital to meet back up with Oropher to see how he is doing and confirm that we probably wont get paid. When we met him he appeared to be getting better which is good. We got to some talking and he told us that he was left with an insane amount of debt, and it was do mainly to a summoner called Vestus Savaska.

John and i decided to split up. He headed back to Kalob to see if he could scry and see where Vestus is while i headed to the Nightshade Theater to gather clues. I stood in the middle of the crippled stage in the dilapidated theater and focused back into my memories to the night of the attack. When accessing the past i was able to study more of what happened that night. I observed Vestus and found that the summoned trolls were not actually summoned trolls but rather animated enlarged human skeletons with an illusion to make them look like trolls. I also found that he was wearing a necklace with the symbol of the devourer on it, just like i have seen in my dreams and on those people that attacked us a few times before. After Vestus controlled the “trolls” to attack the nobles he let them go on their rampage of killing and fled out the back door, not before taking a box full of purple diamonds which i estimate to be valued at 40k. He did not use them for the play and to my knowledge i do not know what they are used for for components in spells. I dont think we want to find out though for they are very rare and probably are used for some dark and evil rare spell, or he just wanted the money. Now that i think of it i should ask Oropher how he was able to get such diamonds.

After finding clues about the events that took place, John work we prematurely out of my trance and i notice Liliana is with us as well. We filled Liliana in on what we have discovered so far and then john brought us to Vestus’ desk in the dressing room, it too had the mark of the devourer in it and also a hidden compartment that led to another dimension with a lot, i mean A LOT, of bones and rotting carcasses. John was also able to find files on the play and its employees which might be usefull later on. We also Discovered that in the prop room (where the summoner was) there was a tear in space and the Weave was leaking through, we found this out when i was creating water to wash dawn off and i all the sudden had fangs , also i discovered that John is not what he appears to be, and for his protection and mine i will not reveal that info. We didnt find much more in the room since most of it has been looted but i did find the guard badges from Shanedon which leads me to believe that Vestus most likely came from there recently and that is where he got the human guard skeletons. We headed to the nearest gate to ask the guard if he seen Vestus run buy and he said that he did and he was heading in the direction of Shanedon.

The three of us headed to meet back with Kalob to see if he could help. Using the picture of Vestus that was given to us by Oropher he was able to locate Vestus and find that he is near Shanedon and raising an army of undead which is not good. After learning this John headed to the main room where people from the Dancing Sword gathered and he with the help of Kern who randomly came in was able to get us around 100 volunteers to fight this rising army. I believes we might need more so less lives are lost so i am off to talk to the town guard to see if they can spare any men or equipment for the sake and safety of the city.

With these dreams i have been having i feel as if they are not my own entirely, it feels like someone might be accessing my mind. I will have to look into this more but if my suspicions are true then I have to try something that i have never done before but might be my only hope.

I just hope that we are able to restore order and balance to the weave, because if the Devourer or even someone else bad gets a hold of it then it could mean the end of life for everyone and all hope of succeeding and ascending to the heavens after this cycle to see Kayla again will be lost.

Events of the World: Meeting & Assignments
John's Account

Today Kalob finally met with the Samsaran, Vakarian Bornstellar. He was… different than I had expected. His skin was as blue as the ocean in lands far from Caelthyr. As planned I greeted him and his, well I’m not sure what to call his companion, child possibly; If he was his child then the blue skin must not run in the family. Then I proceeded to take them to the building where the meet was to happen. They surrendered their weapons to the men we had inside and went in. During this time I walked REDACTED.

Once the meeting had concluded the Samsaran was given three things to look into for Kalob; he himself is much too busy to look into everything by himself.
1. Peaches: The city of Argos is only receiving peaches as an import. This will ruin its economy and drive the city bankrupt. This happened after the King Richard Aegis fell into a coma of sorts (this in of itself is very puzzling, I believe the two to be connected in some way).
2. BOOM: In the ethereal plane the weave is set to explode, this would cause everyone who is connected to it to loose their connection. I myself am not entirely sure what would happen then, as I am not as schooled in the arcane as Kalob; but he tells me that it would be very bad for everyone. Magic and non-magic users alike. I MUST HELP THEM STOP THIS. The only issue is getting into the ethereal plane.
3. Devourer: In a swamp North of the city Pylos there was an image found, in an archeological dig of an old battlefield, of someone called the devourer. Kalob has asked me to look into this. He believes this could have a connection with the weave.

I believe that our investigation should start with the peaches in Argos. These peaches will bankrupt the city within the month. They simply cannot afford to be buying peaches in this quantity.
