War of the Burning Sky
Out of the Frying Pan.
The party reaching the cave a couple of hours before nightfall settled in for the a much needed rest. Some strange transformations took place that night both inside and outside the cave. Sa'relka sealed himself inside a cocoon and emerged the next day with a set of wings while Reysons Moon Wisp grew to a more humanoid shape taking on the appearance of an Eladrin with wings. Outside the cave the forest that had burned for so long was being touched by snow, Upon seeing this Sa'Relka with his four arms and his races natural affinity to snow initiated a snow ball fight firing salvos of shots at the other members despite hitting 500 and Dara neither got involved 500 due to his usual sombre nature and Dara due to her depressed state. Reyson joined in and also made a Snow Seela sending Dara into a more depressed state. Sa' Relka then began building a fort with the snow but upon finishing was immediatly forced to defend it when Kashant tried to sneak around the back and urinate on the side of it, pushing some snow down Kashant was quick to cart wheel out of the way and in the process managed to write his name in the wall in an amazing feat of precision and dexterity. Reyson then began blasting the walls with his Eldritch magic, the first salvo of snowballs missed him but after one more blast the 3 of the second salvo caught him perfectly knocking him over into the snow as he ran away.

The party then headed back towards the tower on the bridge arriving just before dawn, Sa' Relka deciding to test out his new wings flew up to the 2nd floor window causing a panic as Krystin spotted him and screamed loudly waking Torrent and Haddin. Kashant retrieving Moss' crushed body from the bag of holding(retcon from last episode) and buried him outside in an unmarked grave. During this Reyson stuffed the bag(already containing a Stags body(details of 500's study to come later)) with the table with the map of the forest engraved on it.

EDIT:Torrent questioned the party about the fire stopping and Indomitability although the party did not reveal too much she informed them that Krystin began recovering after the fire stopped, she also informed the party that while she had obviously had a troubled sleep the only coherent thing to come from her was just before the fire stopped she awoke sat bolt upright in the bed and shouted "Deception." before once again collapsing.

Before setting off in earnest the party first went to the shrine in the village finding that Eteranth was gone, the body of the Eladrin had burned to a cinder and the preserving presence was no longer present.

The rest of the journey out of the forest proved uneventful but the party faced new challenges as they made their way into a treacherous mountain pass. Kashant led the way past the first obstacle, a large rock slide fell across the path which he deftly traversed leading the party to safety. Before long though the party were hit by a driving snowstorm forcing them to seek refuge, Reyson spotted a cave but as soon as they entered they knew this wasn't the safety they had sought. From within the cave a moaning sound could be heard, Kashant sneaking up to one alcove could see a zombie with a cold aura around him he then signalled to the rest of the party the presence of a zombie. Sa'Relka wasted no time flying in hoping to hit and run, unfortunately the zombie was more well armoured than he expected and missed, his luck got worse as the zombie flailed an arm out stopping him in his tracked the strike froze the Thri Kreen to the spot.

The party had to deal with frost zombies coming from 3 directions the chill frost flooding from their undead bodies harming anyone who came near and even in defeat they were not soon forgotten as they exploded into a burst of snowflakes. A hard fought battle against 7 of the things saw Dara, Sa'Relka, 500 and Torrent fall, but good team work saw their allies help them back up before Reyson struck the final blow with his Sunblade which nearly dropped Kashant(1hp). The party swiftly piled up the bodies against the one passage from the chamber they were in that was not a small alcove. Kashant then bravely volunteered to explore deeper using his natural darkvision to cautiously move through the cave, after finding nothing he returned to the party to inform them he had dispatched another zombie, Reyson quickly saw through this lie asking him to bring the body back for looting. One last ditch attempt by the Shade to trick the party by disappearing back in the darkness and re-emerging with 3 coins claiming to have looted it from the zombie saw no-one fooled before he finally admitted to finding nothing else.

The party then settled in for a well deserved rest.

500 will formally ask Kashant the motivation for his deception.
Added some stuff that I forgot to put in.(I wonder what made me remember that?)

And any discussion like that can be done in the forum thread I just made.
