Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team searched Yrax’s throne room and found numerous healing items.  Baknarla then wind walked past the iron doors and unlocked Yrax’s treasury from the inside.  The party found a wealth almost beyond imagination.  After looking around, they found Viveka’s shawl as well as a bearskin.  The bearskin was odd because Yelnoth and Shatha were able to confirm there are no bears on Triaxus.  The group returned Viveka’s shawl and freed the nereid from captivity.  She told them a bit about the remaining inhabitants of Ivoryglass including a diplomatic guest.  The group went to talk to him.

The party found themselves standing before a massive 10-legged kokogiak!  The bear-like monstrosity spoke with them and was fairly pleased that Yrax was dead.  After some negotiation, they traded an 850-lb. chunk of adamantine for safe passage back through the Drakelands armies and out of the vicinity of Ivoryglass.

The team made it back to the Dancing Hut of Baba Yaga, and they threw the bearskin into the cauldron.  They tried to throw the two-headed eagle into the bubbling brew, but it resisted.  Svala got hold of it and slammed it bodily into the stew, which activated the hut.

The team found themselves in a room full of old birdcages occupied by dead or dying fae-like creatures.  Magnus cast comprehend languages and could understand their mutterings but could not speak with them.  They heard several strange utterances:

“From distant world to distant world, at last now we come home.”

“Many huts for many tales, but all begin here.  Vasilisa and her little doll.  Hungry children and a house of gingerbread.  Little Otik.  The forsaken son, come to claim his birthright.”

“Grandmother’s breadcrumb’s , all snatched up.  What little birds pecked them up?”

They opened a door and found a gingerbread room filled with furniture made of sweets.  Baknarla went in to look out the window and ended up eating part of the room.  She began screaming in fear before finally being lassoed and dragged out.  Once in the original room, the team slammed the door, while she threw up rotting maggot-covered material.  Next, the group climbed up the chimney and found themselves in a wooded room.

In this overgrown area, they encountered “Little Otik”, a massively overgrown mandragora that desperately pleaded to be fed.  It revealed itself a child of Baba Yaga and talked about its brother and sister recently feeding it a goat.  It then got fixated on goats and assumed All Might’s horse and Alfbern’s bear were funny looking goats.  It begged to get to eat them.  It threw a tantrum.  It cried.  It shouted.  Finally, it shrieked and attacked the party alongside a number of assassin vines!  The team fought hard, and soon Little Otik lay dead and destroyed.
