Episode Summary Edit

The gang hunkers down in Stebrook for about six weeks. During this time the skies weep black clouds across the horizons, as demon portals are opening all over Irulan. The Chosen venture out to close them, but the gateways are opening faster than they can deal with them.

Stark has Bilquo spread word about his intention to gather a host to fight cultists, then gathers information from Elizabet. Markus tries to track down a former student, turned cultist, of his, and studies the massive increase of cults in the realm. Devin prepares by studying the Beastiary of Irulan and ordering Choo to relocate his goblin clan to some caveworks beneath The Mage College, while others are sent to New Weedale to grow food for the tribe. Meanwhile, Torrin invented a new variant of cheesy tots: just cheesy tots, with bacon.

Ultimately, The Chosen are summoned to Avisac by Alvareis. He tells of the halfling Ilander Hobblefeet in the Shield Peaks who allegedly hails from the time of the Original Chosen Five, and has been living in self-imposed exile for hundreds of years. He claims to have information on how to close all the demon portals at once and asks The Chosen to seek him out.

Travers has been unaccounted for a long time now. After gearing up, the group flies Stebrook north into the Shield Peaks. Once there, they make a base camp on the ground and start the daunting voyage into the icy North.
