Calairiel led her allies through the dense undergrowth of the Beastlands, drawing on her visions for guidance.
After a few days of exploration, the party found the fossilised dinosaur from Calairiel’s dreams. With it, they found an open gate to the material plane, and a party of drow. At Calairiel’s behest, the party attacked the drow to drive them from the holy site, though Kerys kept her quarry alive.
When questioned on their motives, the drow said they were trying to transport the fossil back to the Underdark through the nearby gate. If raised, they claimed, the giant reptile would be a powerful weapon.
A planetar astride a unicorn came forth from the undergrowth. She was a servant of Ehlonna, tasked with guarding Ehlonna’s relic. Though the planetar praised Calairiel for finding the relic, she did not pass its challenges. Calairiel was gifted a magical tattoo as a gift for her service.
Peering through the gate, the party saw two armies standing idle, as if frozen mid-battle. The cause was apparent: an army of illithid and drow were crawling out of a fissure in the earth. Among them was the lich, who was slaying the surface soldiers and reanimating them as undead warriors.
The party beseeched Ehlonna’s servant to close the gate behind them, and stepped forth to drive back the hordes of the Underdark.
