Our heroes escaped from The Deep Wells by unconventional means, leaping through the portal tethered to Kerys and into the private demiplane. What terrors—what sights—what wondrous creatures would lie in the realms of one man’s imagination given physical form?
The party emerged in the mouth of a colossal whale, unlike anything they had seen before. They took refuge on a nearby island in the great sea of blue, and settled down for a night’s rest.
But their slumber was interrupted by the great beast’s appetite. Clearly hungry, it opened its great maw and began to suck the party inwards. Our heroes are not so easily caught napping, though, and deftly escaped. After some thought, the party dubbed the creature “Inhale Whale”. It was apt, but impersonal, so they vowed to do better while they thought of what to do with the beast.
It seemed miserable: immobile, bored, and with a terrible hunger. Kerys mused that it was entirely possible that the whale was imprisoned here, kept as a curiosity by the demiplane’s owner. They wished to help, but our heroes were needed elsewhere. So, Kerys cast a familiar hex upon the colossal whale, and gave it a form better suited for easy travel: that of a small, brown mouse.
Graminea pocketed the poor creature, and gave him a name.
“I will love him, and cherish him, and call him Steve.”

Their adventures in the private demiplane concluded, the party hopped planes back to their home base in Sigil. There, Lucretia was introduced to The Salubrious Pig. Perhaps sensing Lucretia’s unease, Graminea called in a work crew to renovate the dilapidated drinkery. If it was to serve as a home, of sorts, it should at least be rid of the persistent smell.
And what of Steve? Well, after some complaining about his reduction in stature, he grew quite used to his new taste buds, his smaller appetite, and the abundance of raisins to feast on. He was released into the mouse populace of Sigil, and lived out the rest of his days happily chewing on Sigil’s garbage.
