usk draws over the horizon as the Ethereal Defiler finally lies dead. Last time, the group chased Talin’s trail into the forest, leaving a gaping hole in the bamboo wall of the Inn. Finding the scene of a struggle, the group follows Angela’s trail and encounters Veradin, who had apparently brought Kio back to life through some unknown dark magic. He traded Kio for the ritual (which all of you think is the tattoo ritual that Aumanil has already memorized) so it does not seem a steep trade, however it became quickly aware that he did not intend for Kio to live as he did not give you the real antidote. Kio did however get the antidote from Togashi, Tsing-Toa’s half brother who is forced to do Veradins will. After his escape, you were forced to fight a powerful spirit known as an Etheral Defiler which Fow Bang Chow slew with his mighty sword Valorun. After the battle, Togashi left an old piece of parchment revealing the truth of Talins state as a Lycanthrope, and you headed back to the inn for one more night, as they let you have a free night in exchange for fixing their wall, as they simply do not want any trouble. The group thankfully agrees and prepares for their journey into the canyon complex known as the great divide.
