Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team climbed a ladder inside the storeroom and found themselves in a hut with a cauldron.  A trio of ravens took flight in the room and began to speak, “Baba Yaga has gone on, off to see her only son.  But a trail she left behind, if the breadcrumbs you can find!”  They knocked several items off the shelves on to the floor:  a stuffed two-headed eagle, a hand mirror, and an elephant tusk.  The team used the index to enter the library and found a name for Baba Yaga’s son, Grigori.  They figured out the items were not hut keys but clues to find others.

The team exited the hut and were stunned to find themselves in a snowy mountain range with an odd sky above.  After a few moments, Kenwrec determined they were on an alien planet!  They debated for a while what to do when a red dragon swooped down from above and circled.  They could tell an armored rider was on its back.  The dragon landed, and the rider approached.  The team found themselves speaking in Draconic to a white-furred female who seemed unsure what exactly they were looking at.  After talking awhile, they learned they were now on the planet called Triaxus and the woman had never seen a human or dwarf.  The woman is named Bescaylie, and the red dragonkin is named Efrixes.  Both are members of the Dragon Legion from the citadel of Spurhorn.  Their fortress is currently under siege by the barbarians of the Drakelands.  The team discovered the commander of Spurhorn has a pet two-headed eagle.  The group agreed to help the Dragon Legion defend against the siege in exchange for an audience with the commander and perhaps possession of the eagle.

The only problem was the team needed to cross the siege lines to get into the fortress.  They waited until dark and used flying ointment to try and cross.  Magnus boosted their speed with blessing of fervor to allow them to avoid a patrol of frost drakes.  They were unable to avoid the dimensionally shifting daemons in pursuit, however.  The greater ceustodaemons swooped in and breathed fire across the party.  Kenwrec hit one with a critical sneak attack.  Bescaylie and Efrixes charged another.  Greta hit the third with a critical as well.  The team swarmed around the daemons and finally brought them all down.

The group then landed on the walls of Spurhorn and were surrounded by crossbowmen.  Bescaylie let them know they party were friends, and the crossbowmen looked at one another and lowered their weapons.
