Sean - "Hello and welcome to another episode of The Tabletop Champions Podcast. I'm Sean your dungeon master and with me tonight we have:"
Ren is looking into the blade of the Oculous, and she sees the process of the Oculous being made. She tells the rest of the party how the Oculous was forged. After hearing the story, the party agrees that they need to get it reforged in some way. They realize that they have to find the other part of the Oculous in The Nine Hells.
When they get back to Haven, the party can see that Haven is prospering and in good condition. Before Tode leaves, Ren asks him if he knows how to get to The Nine Hells. Tode tells that the only thing he knows, is that there used to be portal which lead to the shadow realm and from there to other realms. However, those portals haven't existed for a long time. Elyron asks Travers if he knows how to get to The Nine Hells, but he doesn't either. But he tells that Alenia used to go to The Nine Hells as her safe space.
The group decides to talk to Shelia, to hear if she can help with anything. Before they enter Haven, Colin insists that Elyron can't enter Haven while he's wearing Travers. Instead Colin offers to wait outside Haven along with Elyron.
Minos, Lux and Ren enters Haven to go talk with Shelia. Shelia and the party catch each other up on what's been going on since the party left (The Queen has stepped up her efforts to send sullied to Blackrock). Shelia can't help the party get to The Nine Hells, but she tells that Silo will be back the next morning.
Outside Haven, Elyron is scribbling math in the dirt, trying to figure out how to get to The Nine Hells. Suddenly, Elyron and Colin hear somebody approaching them from the forest. When Elyron peeks through the forest, he sees two small statured figures, clad in armour with raised axes. Immediately, on of the creatures jumps at Elyron, asking "Where's the rabbit?". During the fight, Elyron uses Travers' powers to cast Finger of Death on one of the Duergars, turning it into a zombie. The battle is intense, but in the end both Elyron and Colin are alive.
