Six of the ectoplasmic mediums stopped restraining the ghost of Tsarina Alexandra and attacked the party!  Kenwrec bravely stepped forward and was killed almost immediately.  Greta blessed the party while the mediums walked through walks to try and surround the party.  Deska used her cauldron to summon a fire giant and two stone giants, which nearly filled the house!  Magnus and Svala engaged with their powerful melee weapons while Nikolai unleashed a barrage of bullets still enhanced by Greta’s magic weapon spell.  The giants proved helpful in the battle and allowed Deska to maneuver to blast off a fire snake that devastated the entities.  Several of the team took hits and negative levels, but they maintained the pressure and soon wore their foes down.

After freeing the Tsarina, they began talking to her.  They learned that Anastasia is not only an heir to the Russian throne, but she is Rasputin’s daughter, and thus, granddaughter of Baba Yaga!  They were a bit shocked and realized there were plots within plots going on.  They figured out the spirits were holding the Tsarina to prevent her from telling anyone about Anastasia’s lineage.

The team then searched the house and found Viktor’s plans for the World Engine!  Tulvur’s expertise in engineering proved extraordinarily valuable, and he was able to make out a lot of information including that reconfiguring all four World Anchors within one hour of each other could force the World Engine to bring back the monastery.  Meanwhile, Magnus found a black cloak that he identified as a powerful magical item.  Deska immediately put it on and discovered it was cursed!  She burst into flame and flailed about on the floor trying to extinguish herself.  Magnus pulled out a scroll and was able to remove the curse long enough for Deska to extricate herself from the cloak of immolation.
