Last session, Evelyn's spirit flew up and into the atropal and, through the power of her faith, she unleashed rays of sunshine into the heart of the creature and, apparently, destroyed it.
In the dark tunnel, smoke lingers from the fireball. They can hear the crashing of the waves from outside.
There's a bright amber light out in the Shadowfell that illuminates the beach.
There's a creature in these tunnels. It's Death.
The AfterlifeMeanwhile, Evelyn is being tossed into the air. It is a bright, sunny morning. She begins to fall. Someone catches her. She looks into the eyes of her father. This is a memory.
Now, her dad is gone. Evelyn looks around and realizes that she's in her human form. Evelyn sees Zaress, the priestess she met in the Soulmonger. She's 40 years younger than she appeared to be previously.
Zaress is watching a boy, who is on a swingset. The kid's name is Dortimer Ankathra.
"What is a soul without a soul mate?"
Back in the Shadowfell, the group starts following "Death". He seems to be leading them in a square path.
Paultin casts mislead, which allows him to become invisible.
Death says "I'm free". It starts to cast a spell. Strix casts counterspell and shuts it down.
"Are you Acererak?", the group asks.
"Are you death?"
"I am Death."
Death explains that it was a prisoner of the balhannoth. It explains that this Death is one of many Deaths.
The group wants him to bring back Evelyn. He says he can't do that.
Death has a couple of scrolls. It's his naughty and nice list.
Death tells them how to get out of the tunnels. They've got two choices: Go through the wall or walk around the whole path.
After some searching, Strix falls into a pit full of corpses. From the ceiling, a fresh corpse falls and lands with a splat.
Diath uses the horn of blasting to blow a hole through the wall.Back in the afterlife, Evelyn calls upon her steed. She is delighted to see that Mourning Glory has wings! She's now a pegasus. End of session.
