Real Date Game Date Enchanted Pivuh Speaks for Separate Dragon Priest Faction Logs
10/09/21 439-07 Ayrell and Zynell hosted a second attempt at diplomacy with the Dragon Priests, leading a group to the war camp at the Black Spire after sending an invitation to the Priests to come out. They were met by a talking pivuh that seemed to be an enchanted beast rather than a familiar. The pivuh presented itself as a nameless representative of the Black Spire and seemed to hold a low opinion of Suulnir. It offered an exchange of knowledge, to answer questions in exchange for information on Hylomorphic and Antinomic sorcery. It seemed pleased with what it learned, offered little, and left.

9/18/21 439-05 Lady of Elamiri Ayrell hosted a lecture on the rooftop of Shard's theater, during which she detailed the full history of the Dragon Priests.

To their surprise, on their arrival, they were invited into the Temple of the World Dragon within to meet with Suulnir, a priestess claiming to be spiritual advisor to the Dragon Emperor, Ael'tharaxus. Many questions were asked, most expertly evaded, including questions of her unusual favor, the "glory" the Priests hope to attain, her claims that Bards are no longer the Priests' enemy, and the strange noises coming from deep below. Ultimately, she was attacked by Raikage, after which point she asked everyone to leave, which they did peacefully.

Suddenly, a poison-tipped crossbow bolt was fired from the shadows, grazing Navesi's abdomen, and a number of Dragon Priest assassins appeared and attacked.

10/9/20 436-01 Yraggahh the Black led a group of adventurers agains the Black Spire in retaliation for the Dragon Priest attack on the Ru'atin Peri'el. They succeeded in killing many of the Priests, though they also heard strange grinding noises, the sound of metal screeching, and the distant rumble of gears and chains spinning. The voice of an ancient crone echoed through the area, "Your blood will feed the stones!" There was then a loud thud, and a number of stones in the floor and walls suddenly receded. The stones shifted around with a loud rumble, and a series of clicks emanated from behind the masonry. After that, though, there was only silence.

7/31/20 435-04 Yraggahh the Black led a group of mainly S'Kra Mur to visit the Ru'atin Peri'el on Aesry Surlaenis'a, with the purpose of discussing the Kra'hei and the curse they have suffered. They met Nerekh, a Sister, and spoke briefly, but soon after were attacked by Dragon Priests from the shadows, who grievously wounded their ally, Ashunara, with a bolt to the eye. A greenish-black portal was opened to a Dragon Priest war camp, and those who went through it were sacrificed to the World Dragon. Nerekh dragged Ashunara into the sanctum as the Priests were dispatched, not to be seen again.

Elemental Experiments

Real Date Game Date Custodian Makes Pulsing Song and Lights Logs
8/21/21 439-02 Mazrian invited interested participants to come study a voltaic custodian at the Zengmodaleth. The one captured chirped in an understandable pattern, which was carried through by the other custodians in the area. It also had a wire that pulsated in sequence, and it flashed in a sequence of repeating colors. Oddly, there were times when slight deviations appeared in the patterns, for example dropping a color in the flashing sequence. When Navesi tried singing back the tonal sequence, it gave a loud chirp and changed the sequence. When she tried again, it buzzed loudly, and shortly thereafter exploded. The scientists then encountered a group of hostile voltaic custodians and lightning selreks.

Real Date Game Date Custodians Attack Again, Have Evolved Logs
4/3/21 437-08 The Crossing was attacked by unstable voltaic custodians and lightning selreks. Grove Scholar Uryutis was heard on the gweth saying that the custodians had "slipped a restraint" and seemed "more capable," and several adventurers decided to meet with him in the Zengmodaleth afterward. He believes that the custodians are now a little faster and stronger and "some of their prime functionality appears slightly more independent." He also made it clear that he doesn't believe the portal to Zengmodaleth is their primary means of accessing the Plane of Abiding, and that these invasions are not the fault of any adventurers or the opening of the portal. More discussion was had about experiments that could be done to learn more.

Real Date Game Date Custodians Attack, New Area of Zengmodaleth Revealed Logs
3/28/21 437-08 A lightning storm struck the Crossing, and the city was attacked by unstable voltaic custodians and lightning selreks. The storm (and attacks) moved north to Riverhaven, then Therenborough. Finally, adventurers gathered in the Zengmodaleth west of Therenborough to speak to Scholar of the Grove Uryutis. He revealed a crackling orb of blue and green swirled lightning that transports people to a new area of the Zengmodaleth populated by custodians. He believes that Daervlan has allowed access to this area for a reason, that he wants us to see and understand something. It is a test.

Shockingly, they succeeded, and a new portal was revealed on the Handsome Plateau west of Therenborough, a crackling ring of blue and green swirled lightning, which leads to the Zengmodaleth area.

Real Date Game Date The Aetheric Anomaly Logs
3/8/20 433-09 Working with Grove Scholar Uryutis, Perune, Mazrian, Saragos, and Navesi gathered numerous Warrior Mages and Bards in order to thicken or strengthen the Aetheric canvas of an area, the hope being that this might protect it from extraplanar influence. The result was an Aetheric Anomaly that presented as a curiosity to many of the mages present, who each had his or her own perception of its nature. Some theorized it was a portal to the Plane of Aether, though it killed those who entered it. Over the course of a few weeks or months, the anomaly slowly shrank until it disappeared.

Real Date Game Date Uryutis Lectures on Aether Logs
2/10/19 429-10 Grove Scholar Uryutis favored adventurers with a lengthy lecture on Aether, revealing much about sensing it through Othersight, its role as the "canvas" upon which our Plane is painted, and its ubiquity throughout our universe.

Real Date Game Date Adventurers Meddle with Aether Logs
Unknown Unknown Perune had an idea of how to weave Aether in order to strengthen it in an area, and a small group of adventurers tried this in a private setting. Their meddling did little more than cause some minor injuries, but it also alerted Grove Scholar Uryutis, and he later visited them to discuss it.

Investigations in the Forest

9/24/21 439-06-05 A group of adventurers organized by Eyst entered the Forest of Night seeking the aid of its dryad inhabitants.

A figure wearing a crown of antlers, possibly the subject of a recent vision, was glimpsed several times and appeared to be stalking or leading the group as they ventured through the woods. Only communicating with animals calls and some unknown language, its intentions were not readily apparent and no direct contact was made.

After prayer, the attendees had a vision of a ship sailing under black sail to attack mainland cities and the seagull attacks ceased.
