After meeting with the Arch Druid you continued back to Haven. On the way you met Toriel Kargenok
, a wild elf from the bear clan to the far north. He explained that he overheard your conversation with the Arch Druid and wished to follow you in hopes of redeeming himself and finding a cure for himself. From there you went back to Haven to rest and inform Forgrim of what you found at the Arch Druid’s home.
Leaving Haven, you then made your way back to the camp. At the camp several things happened.
First, Korel and Youfgeni spoke with the rest of their clan and found that Firdeth had left, with the suspicion that he had gone to join the vampires. Korel’s mother gave him the charge of finding Firdeth and if he has joined the vampires, to kill him.
Second, Toriel met with the vampire children and attempted to teach them how to control their hunger.
Tanwen, that night received a message from Terwyn informing her that he was alright and would attempt to meet with her when it was safe to do so.
Soon after the party left the camp heading north for the ancestral hunting grounds of the Gysse-Mitore clan, where they suspected Yuseela had taken residence.
Along the way you met up with Terwyn again, he came with a Paladin named Victor and explained that when he had been unable to find any leads in his search for Tanwen he found Victor and his paladins, the Sons of Valeria and admired their courage and purpose. He joined with them and started down the path of becoming a paladin himself.
After the reunion, Terwyn continued on with the group to find the vampire clan.
Once there you set the place on fire while dragging Yuseela and Firdeth out. From them you learned that Firdeth had been promised a place among them for helping them to get at the rest of the clan. There were references to someone named Vincent.
You got the ashes of Yuseela and returned to the camp. ON the way you ran into a few vampires waiting for you underwater who nearly Drowned Korel and killed Quintessa. With a little bit of luck you managed to kill them and get away.
You made it back to the camp which then moved to Haven. Bringing the children to Forgrim you concocted the potions and performed the ritual bringing them all back to the land of the living.
This done you made for the valley behind Snowspire mountain. Once there you met up with Victor and his paladins again. When night came you witnessed a ritual the vampires were performing which appeared to cast darkness over the entire sky, blotting out the sun. During the ritual a being was summoned that appeared to be the avatar of Azmoriel. They mentioned something about finding the shards of a blade to bring their Lord back to his former power.
Leaving the area, Victor took you back to the stronghold of the Sons of Valeria, which as it turns out is in the mountains to the southeast of Snowspire Mountain.
There he explained to you his knowledge of the origins of the first vampires and his ideas as to what they must be looking for. He mentioned that when Azmoriel had walked the land of Evahr before, when he was defeated and banished, his sword had been shattered. He believes they are attempting to reforge it and use its power to bring Azmoriel back.
Victor suggested that to defeat a God, you may need the help of a God and thus told you of a plan that he had been concocting for several years and which now seems prudent to undertake.
He suggested finding the ancient temple of the Sons of Valeria. The order, back in the olden days had constructed a communication device for communing directly with their goddess.
His suggested course of action is to use magic to disguise yourselves as vampires, and thus get into Port Steel. Find the crypt below the old temple of Valeria there and resurrect one of the ancient order to lead them to the location of the ancient temple.
In the meantime you have summoned the Arch Druid to Victor’s stronghold and the Arch Druid explained that he has been unable to contact Firalla directly but will attempt to aid your endeavors by searching for the shards of Azmoriel’s blade, hopefully to head them off before the vampires can get to them.
