With instruction from Baba Yaga, the team plunged the athame into the khala’s corpse and imbued it with Baba Yaga’s death.  They then submerged in the pool and emerged back at Vigliv’s tree.  They used the athame to open another level of the doll and were imbued with more of the Witch Queen’s power. 

They then learned they must seek Baba Yaga’s life, which is protected by her daughters.  However, Baba Yaga warned that Elvanna will have made precautions to prevent them from retrieving it.  She guided them toward a cave and warned them that within they must be swallowed by a massive worm to activate the portal! 

On the way up the to the cave they were ambushed by four bone devils!  They divided the party with a wall of ice and began clawing and stabbing with their poisonous tails.  The devils landed several blows but overall were pretty ineffective against the team’s armor.  After vanquishing them, the party ascended to the landing before the cave and found an illusion masking a pair of advanced ice devils!

The larger, nastier devils overlapped cones of cold across the team and tore into them with barbed spears.  They led the party to divide into two groups and hammered away with spells and melee.  Their spell resistance thwarted several attacks, and their regeneration allowed them to recover from several attacks.  The devils were mostly a nuisance instead of a true threat, though, as the team quickly wore them down and vanquished them both.
