After a cold, restless night, the party + Hamas and Walton make their way back down to the bridge, the dead priestess and a weak Taman in tow. Before they leave the mountaintop, Alex and Andraste are able to find Taman’s teleport stone, which Andraste promptly gives to Dawn.
Once settled in the building by the bridge, Loghren and Andraste disguise themselves as Drow and interrogate the dead priestess. They learn that something the Drow call “the awakening” is near. She speaks of her brother’s plans, and mentions the name Nezzier
??? I have no idea how to spell that whoops. She tells them that the creature dropped into the moonpool was an “essence of a greater whole;” it was an instrument to be bent to their will, one whose power potentially rivals Lloth herself. She tells them that the Drow are hunting their “ancestral kin,” and mentions something about faeries. When Andraste and Loghren drop their disguises, the priestess tells Andraste that her gods aren’t listening, and nothing will save her race.
Outside, the heavy mists that had previously engulfed the mountain range begins to fade. As the party discusses what the priestess said, Loghren notices a figure on the bridge. Using her super awesome raven, Korima, Andraste is able to identify the figure as Tawna, the healer from the expedition, who then decides the best course of action is to launch as crossbow bolt at the completely innocent Andraste.
Hamas diffuses the situation before it can escalate, and the party heads across the bridge with Tawna. Once there, Alex attempts to locate Aedin. However, both locate creature and message appear to fail, and the prince remains lost. Due to lack of components, the party is unable to commune with Selune to confirm whether or not the prince lives (as well as have some other various questions answered).
Their work done in the monastery, the party, along with what little remains of the expedition, decide to first make a trip to Eastwater before returning to Alton, and they all begin to head down the mountain and into the Graewood. On the way down, a soldier falls. Andraste helps him, only to have him die a few minutes later to large carrion birds dropping him off the side of the mountain
this is why i shouldn’t try to help people :(.
