Starring: Adrian and Skoja Sigrúndatter
And Introducing: Lady Nightflower
The heroes made their way to Avalon, to discover the origins of an ancient curse afflicting Adrian’s family. After encountering terrible redcaps and the court of Lady Nightflower, they went to Mount Cymru to slay a dragon on the order of the Unseelie Queen. It was Adrian’s task to follow through with because of his murder of several fey with cold iron, but the dragon proved to be more talkative than violent. The origination of Adrian’s family curse was revealed to be the machinations of The Red-Eyed King.
With their guide, the directions provided by the dragon, and a surprise in the form of Lady Nightflower’s ancient heart, the group set out to find the Red-Eyed King. After a week’s travel, the group was found by a giant satyr minion of the Unseelie King and led to his court camp.
Although the reasons behind The Red-Eyed King’s curse upon Adrian’s family were never revealed, the King was all too happy to remove the curse in exchange for Lady Nightflower’s heart. The group did not stay to find out what would be done with it though. They were given a head start on their escape from The Red-Eyed King’s territory, and made haste to leave.
Feeding their horses the fey food gifted to them by Lady Nightflower’s court, the group found their flight accelerated to an unearthly rate. Their horses ran for days on end, straight to the cliffs north of Wandesborrow. The group dismounted their steeds before they leapt straight off of the cliffs, still running like mad, into the crashing sea below.
Upon their return to Wandesborrow, they set to gathering their crew, obtaining some cargo, and setting sail from the shores of Avalon.
