The Mists of Pantea

A Bush With Danger

Two more dryads appear while Taman approaches the base of the large, beautiful tree. One dryad charms Loghren, while the other charms both Andraste and Dawn. The three split off from Alex and Hamas, following their respective dryads. Meanwhile, as the dryads are guiding the three to the tree, Taman is preparing to light it on fire. Before he can do so, one of the tree’s roots slams into him, and wraps around his waist.

Before Loghren strays too far, Alex casts Dispel Magic on him, and Loghren is freed from the dryad’s spell. Now free, he immediately attacks the creature (sounding just a wee bit creepy while he’s at it) it turns out my Nightmare Buddy causes nightmares. However, it does not attack him back, it merely vanishes. As Dawn is following her dryad, she speaks, loud enough for Andraste to hear, “I don’t have to lie to you.” INTERESTING.

Meanwhile, the tree has fully grasped Taman. A mouth-like shape appears in the tree’s trunk, and it attempts to eat Taman. Luckily for Taman, and the party, it fails it’s attempt, miserably. The roots then turn their attention to Loghren as Taman successfully lights the tree on fire.

As Andraste approaches the tree, Alex casts Dispel Magic on her as well, freeing her from the dryad’s charm (Meanwhile, Loghren continues to assail his former waifu the poor dryad who just wanted his help). Hamas attempts to free Taman from his bark-y prison, but is disarmed in the process – i told you he was a liability-. Dawn is also heading for the large tree, and although she is unable to discern what the dryad wants, she knows it is scared.

Roots slam into both Loghren and Andraste, pulling them towards the large tree while the tree once again fails to eat Taman it’s not a very smart tree, apparently, and he’s able to slip free.

Andraste, stealing improving upon Alex’s idea, asks the dryad if it needs help, except in Sylvan instead of Elven. It replies “protect us” before fading away. Loghren, meanwhile, continues his rampage of carnage and casts burning hands on the evil tree. When Dawn attempts to hit the tree with a firebolt, however, the tree seems to absorb the fire, and the firebolts have no effect. So instead, she decides to climb the tree, which attempts to bite her in retaliation.

As the party continues to chip away at the tree, Alex casts Locate Object on Walton’s glasses, of all things, which leads him to believe that Walton is inside the tree keep burning the tree, i say!. He looks for any openings where Walton may be hiding, but can’t find any, or any traces of Walton, for that matter. Dawn assaults the tree with Redemption, but hurts herself, which forces her to let go of her weapon. She then summons it back like two seconds later and it’s awesome. Before the tree can get any hits in, she casts shield, protecting herself.

Loghren Gets a Waifu

The following morning, Alex is the first among the group to wake up. As he wakes up, he takes a quick head count and discovers that Walton in missing. Alex is unable to find any tracks Walton may have left, but as he scans the forest, he spots a humanoid figure off in the distance. He decides to follow it why why would you do this into the forest, and it leads him deeper and deeper into the Graewood. As he moves into the trees, he notices these odd purple lights that glow and hang in the air like dust motes.

The figure is now close enough for Alex to distinguish it’s features, and it appears to be an elven woman… who oddly reminds him of his dead wife yeah no thanks can we just go?? why are we still in this forest. The creepy dead-wife-look-alike attempts to charm Alex, but he proves to be too wise THE POWER OF PELOR COMPELS YOU! He raises his voice, screaming at the creature how it’s not his wife.

Back at camp, Andraste is able to hear the massive racket Alex is making, and wakes up. Noticing that both Alex and Walton are missing, she wakes up Taman, Loghren, and Dawn, and they follow Alex’s trail into the forest. Meanwhile, the dryad is still attempting to charm Alex, but he’s able to see through her. Her appearance suddenly changes to that of a hideous combination of undead and tree woman… thing. Plant life and vegetation rapidly grow under Alex’s feet, attempting to snare him, but he is, once again, able to escape the dryad’s tricks.

AS the others begin to catch up, Loghren and Taman are the next to spot the beautiful elven woman. Taman is unaffected, and recognizes the creature as a dryad, but Loghren, however, falls for her feminine wiles. He is drawn to the dryad, and starts walking toward it. Andraste tries to stop him by giving him a sharp backhand, but it doesn’t seem to affect him Andraste attempted: backhand! it wasn’t very effective…. He reacts angrily, and Andraste gets caught in the vines Alex had escaped earlier.

Loghren attempts to shove Andraste, but she doesn’t… really move Loghren attempted: shove! It wasn’t very effective…. Taman, meanwhile, looses an arrow at the dryad, and Loghren directs his rage to him. Dawn helps out Andraste a bit before rushing the dryad. As Loghren walks away from Andraste, she is able to hit him with the Cursed Rapier i never thought I’d be able to land a hit on Loghren to be honest, but luckily he doesn’t seem to care. Andraste then, having a genius idea, tries to override the dryad’s charm spell by charming Loghren herself. It doesn’t work.

The dryad then tries to influence Dawn, but fails this dryad isn’t having the best of luck is it?. Dawn attacks it, and Loghren attempts to retaliate, but can’t pierce her armor. Although Taman does a lot of damage to the dryad, Alex is the one who finishes it off, killing it and freeing Loghren from its influence.

As they think the battle ends, Andraste is able to sense more enemies, and spots a glowing purple light behind Taman. She looses an arrow at it, and the light dissolves, only to reappear some distance away. Taman and Andraste investigate the lights, and together, they are able to determine that the lights are Dancing Lights.

While the party debates following the lights, a wounded and exhausted Hamas stumbles toward the party. He asks to accompany them in finding Walton. Despite the numerous and completely legitimate protests, Hamas accompanies the group as hey follow the lights. As the trail leads further and further into the forest, the trail suddenly dies, and Taman is pushed down a ravine. Andraste catches him, but he lets himself drop anyway, as the slope isn’t that severe.

However, while this is happening, another dryad appears, and Loghren, Dawn, and Andraste all fall under its influence…

The Red Knot Lives! For Now...

While the party is wondering whether their alive or dead, they are treated to a vision of Gery Diggly running through a dark corridor that drips with strange black ooze (tentacles also come out of the wall). As the vision ends, Gery is seen jumping into a pool of mysterious black liquid.

Taman wakes up, and finds that time around him has stopped; the world is completely still and silent. The only person currently around him is Walton, who looks unharmed. As he rises to look for his friends, he discovers that two of his fingers broke in the crash. He sets them, painfully, and looks for his companions. He first finds Andraste pinned under one of the masts with a nasty looking head wound.

Just like before, he is able to rewind time, and rewinds back far enough to where the mast is no longer pinning Andraste. He pulls her to safety, and catches time up back to normal since he can’t find any of his other companions. He heals Andraste a bit before lying down next to her. Walton finds them, and like the kind soul he is, heals them.

The two decide to look for the others while Andraste dozes off. They’re able to find Dawn hanging dangerously from a tree not too far from the ship. They use the power of teamwork to free her, and Taman heals her and wakes her up. However, she’s not completely unscathed; a few of her ribs broke in the fall.

The three set off, and find a gravely injured Captain Hamas, who’s been impaled by one of the ship’s handrails. After a few attempts, Taman is able to free Hamas from the handrail Hamas and the Handrail sounds like an awesome band name btw. After some medical attention, he is able to tell the others where he last saw Alex and Loghren.

They leave Walton with Hamas, and continue walking until they come upon a ravine. About halfway down the ravine, the bow of the ship rests. Taman uses his rope and rappels down to the remains of the ship. He is able to find an unconscious Alex and Loghren half buried underneath crate and barrels bromance is exhausting work.

Alex wakes up to a headache and a skull fracture; he heals himself and Loghren, who wakes up soon after. Alex frees himself with little difficulty, but freeing Loghren proves to be a greater challenge. With some hard work and dedication and emptying one or two barrels Loghren is finally freed. As their gathering their stuff and preparing to leave, the ship shifts and shakes, signalling that it’s about to fall deeper into the ravine.

They all barely make it out before the ship falls and being to climb back up the ravine with Dawn’s help. While this is happening, Andraste wakes up and wanders toward where she last saw Taman. She stumbles upon Walton, who heals her one last time. She gives him her medkit to heal Hamas, and he points her in the direction of the rest of the party.

She finds Dawn in the midst of pulling the others up, and helps her out and gives her a potion or two. Taman unties himself from the rope and begins to climb on his own, while Dawn and Andraste awaken their secret Amazonian powers and pull up Loghren and Alex almost effortlessly. Taman, on the other hand, fails to climb.

Once the other two are safely on the ground, Andraste and Dawn toss the rope down to Taman, and display their amazing Amazon powers once again by pulling him up to safety. Alex and Taman immediately fall asleep, and the others soon follow once Walton and Hamas approach them.

SORRY ITS SHORT I HAD TO WRITE THIS TWICE I’M SO UPSET

Parre's Personality Isn't as Cool as His Token

Following the events of Rot’s death, Captain Parre takes the Red Knot into custody, claiming that they committed murder and are up to no good eXCUSE YOU IT WAS SELF DEFENSE. Inside their cell, Loghren has been unusually quiet. When Taman asks him what happened on the boat with Rot, Loghren reveals that he made a deal with the devil Belial, and will serve it for 100 years after his death. Making this deal has turned Loghren’s hair white.

Captain Parre eventually shows up to question the party. Loghren attempts to plead their case, but Parre refuses to listen to him.However, Captain Hamas soon arrives and is able to get Parre to release the party, totally saving the day. Although the party is supposed to be escorted directly to the barracks to be kept under watch, Taman and Andraste are able to convince the Captain to take them to the Hall of the Silver Lady, first. Before they set off, Taman is able to recover some of his equipment, and returns Andraste’s daggers to her. He also gifts her with Wasp Sting it’s definitely not a rip off of Wyrm String.

As the Red Knot and Captain Parre head off, they chit chat about Hamas’s recovery and his arrival in Alton. Alex mentions Thely why. why would you do this and Andraste casts invisibility on herself in order to escape the awful memories.

When the party makes it to the temple, Alex and Hamas go in together, leaving the others behind. Sister Mary lets them in, despite the late hour, and returns the Quiver of Ehlonna to him before he leaves. Everyone is then lead through the city to the barracks, where they crack open Taman’s last bottle of fancy wine. The next morning, Andraste, with the help of Hamas, forces some poor soldier to retrieve her rapiers for her i’m not sorry!.

At the Moon Maiden, Alex gives Andraste the quiver back my preciousssss. Taman is put in charge of navigation, Andraste and Dawn are in charge of ballistae, and Alex and Loghren are bums with no jobs. The skyship has a rocky start, but is able to get airborne. Andraste visits the on board physician, and her hearing is finally FINALLY fixed. Loghren and Dawn talk about the day in Razor-Rock Ridge, and Alex learns about the sword he swiped from the masked man. Andraste attempts to teach Taman thieve’s cant, but he completely fails at learning it.

As the Moon Maiden enters the Graewood, the weather worsens and worsens until the skyship is completely encased in thick mist. In the mist, strange shapes appear to fade in and out… Using his super cool ranger senses, Taman is able to detect tat dragons are nearby. Sure enough, a huge red wyvern appears out of the mist, and it instantly kills one of the crew members. The red wyvern is joined by a pack of smaller but just as deadly wyverns. Captain Hamas 1v1s one of the creatures, but nearly dies in the attempt.

As the wyverns slowly begin to pick off crew members one by one, the big one launches a huge fireball at the ship, knocking everyone except Loghren off their feet and setting the ship on fire.

Loghren Finally Remembers Who Rot Is (Then Kills Him)

As Andraste finally conquers her greatest enemy climbs on top of the building, the rest of the party subdues their attackers, who point the party in the direction of the wooden-masked man. They eventually sneak up onto a dock, where the see | Rot | Rot step off a small ship.

At the sight of him, Loghren finally remembers who Rot is took you long enough jeez. He flashes back to the day the Black Falconswere transporting goods through Razor-Rock Ridge. There, the mercenaries are ambushed by warriors (who resemble really pissed off Grim Hornravens). Merric, ever-so noble, saves Kalash before they’re both crushed by a giant rock. Velgrim is killed by one of the warriors. In the midst of the fighting, Loghren seeks out Kallor and they both flee that’s really rude, just saying.

Back in the present, BIlly ( Rosalinde’s son) is dragged out by one of Odain’s men, and is then killed maybe if his mom wasn’t so rude he wouldn’t have died…. Fighting breaks out between Odain’s men and the Red Knot. As they trade blows, one of Odain’s men throws a Molotov at Loghren and Andraste. Andraste, the best quick thinker ever, pulls out the Dust of Dryness pellet and douses the whole party in water no need to thank me, guys.

A bit later, Captain Parre shows up with a squad of Watchers. Loghren and Odain both try to win the Captain over to their side, and Loghren eventually convinces the Captain to help the Red Knot out. At the sight of his men being arrested, Odain flees onto his boat is it a ship or a boat? i don’t care. Loghren chases after him. Meanwhile, Alex goes after the masked man (and completely obliterates one of Odain’s men while he’s at it).

Loghren and Odain fight to the death on the ship. Odain, however, isn’t nearly as cool as Loghren, and is killed we’re totally gonna take Odain’s ship.

Come on, Eileen

That night, the party sleeps in the holding area, and Andraste dreams of her past. She dreams of the job with Anderis that ended poorly, resulting in Anderis’s death. She awakens, and notices Loghren isn’t present. She seeks him out and finds him talking to Captain Parre. Parre leaves, and the two talk about their nightmares, and Loghren offers to talk to her anytime we’re totally nightmare buddies now.

That morning, Parre and Eileen talk to the party about what they learned from the Drow (who didn’t survive the experience). In the Drow’s mind, Eileen saw a large gathering of Drow surrounding a platform. On the platform stood a few female Drow around a body on an altar. They are apparently enacting Zin Carla. One of the Drow stood out; one of his arms was scaly and disfigured, and almost appeared draconic if this guy is omyzar i’m going to cry. He was also bearing the symbol that the Drow mage was carrying.

The party also asks Parre about Rot before they leave, and Parre allows them to join the raid on Chum Street (but he makes them promise to follow his commands).

As there is still time before the meeting with Prince Aedin, the party goes shopping i’m gracefully omitting the details of our shopping venture. you’re welcome. Dawn goes off on her own, saying she’ll meet the party later, but Andraste tails her to a building near the bowyer she stole reacquired the quiver from.

Later on, after the party has regrouped, they meet Aedin at the iron manufactory and everyone is impressed by his longsword. Aedin busts open the doors Aragorn style and reveals the Moon Maiden, a ship made of sky iron that can supposedly fly. It’s 1000000% safe and definitely won’t result in anyone’s death.

Alex gives Taman the dagger to give to Andraste yes give me presents. Loghren also gets his spear back. When Andraste brushes up against it, she is suddenly given a vision of a ruby-red eye (as well as a huge migraine). She pulls him aside and tells him she wants to talk to him later.

They then head for the waterfront, chasing the tip given to them by Andraste’s thief friend. There, Andraste sees people from the outskirts of Alton being led off a ship. She also sees the man in the wooden mask Taman described. Figuring that the masked man will probably lead them to Rot, the party gives chase.

As they follow the man and the civilians through the city, they encounter a bearded man who almost gives away their position. In the process of knocking the man out, the party gives away their position, and are attacked by other men.

Bad Jokes Conquer All

Taman and Andraste take first watch of the Drow. Since he doesn’t seem to be moving or doing anything, really the two take the time to examine the ring, rapier, and wand they pulled off his body i refuse to reword that. Taman then leaves to wake Dawn for the next shift. As Dawn and Andraste watch over the Drow, the room suddenly goes dark. Andraste tries to cast Light on Dawn, but the spell doesn’t work properly .

The two make their way to the door, and as Andraste moves into the hall, Dawn is yanked backward into the room. Andraste goes back for her and Dawn manages to free herself. They make it out into the hall, and out of the darkness. Dawn goes to wake Loghren and Alex, while Andraste heads for Taman.

Almost immediately, Alex wakes up and casts Sunlight, dispelling the darkness. The room now lit, the party is able to see that what appeared to be a spider escaping out the window. Andraste, Taman, and Alex follow it through the window and onto the roof while Dawn and Loghren make their way to street level.

6800ed8372cf39ce3d82f84fdd092279.jpg

The party chases the spider/drow across several rooftops as it tears its way through the city. Taman takes several shots at it, but it doesn’t seem fazed. At one point Dawn attempts to climb onto the roof and join the other three, but fails miserably. As the spider tightropes over a canal, Andraste scream the worst joke ever at it, and it collapses laughing.

As the party catches up to it, they discover that the spider/drow is actually one horrible monstrosity. So Taman and Andraste push it off roof. As the party fights it, two Watchers appear, but they don’t intervene. During the fight, Dawn severs several of the Drider’s spider legs i feel so grossed out just writing it, and eventually the spider half seems to melt away. The drow, near death, casts Circle of Death and tries to limp away, only to get smacked by Alex’s battleaxe yeah i don’t think i can word that any better.

They carry the unconscious Drow to the Watcher’s base of operation, where he is subsequently locked into a holding cell. Taman tries to bribe Captain Parre to let them go and avoid questioning, but the Captain doesn’t take too kindly to it Taman plz. The party is allowed to rest, but they will be held for questioning.

I Get a Drow Mage Hostage for My Birthday

Dawn is the first to recover from the explosion, and is able to heal Loghren a bit while Taman readies a bow shot. While Dawn is unable to make out anyone, Taman spots a figure on the rooftop. He tries to communicate to the rest of the party, but notices that no one seems to be able to hear. Only Andraste and Loghren can see the figure in the darkness.

Loghren, by some miracle, lives, and heals himself pretty much back to full with little to no effort lucky…. He then takes cover beneath the roof the attacker is on. Andraste looses an arrow at the figure, but misses, then throws a Sanctuary Potion toward Loghren. Loghren, however, completely fails to notice the potion soaring toward him, and it slams into his face IT WAS THE DROW GUY NOT ME.

The attacker coats the area in thick webbing, but everyone manages to escape. Loghren scales the building the attacker is on. Taman and Dawn also scale the building, but Taman fails miserably and makes a ton of noise in the process i’m disappointed in your failure to stealth, taman. Meanwhile Andraste attempts to fire an ignited arrow, but to her surprise, it doesn’t light (she does hit the figure, however). She starts to climb the building closest to her.

Loghren, despite his lack of armor and usual weapons, tears into their attacker, severely hurting him. The section of roof under the man begins to glow, and the Drow disappears. He reappears on a roof a couple dozen feet away from the party, but Taman brings him down and the Drow crashes into the street below. He is near death, but Alex is able to stabilize him.

On his body, the party finds a rapier, a sigil of a spider bearing the Drow letter “M,” and a ring. Andraste finds his wand on the roof he was standing on. The party debate about what to do with the unconscious, bloody Drow, and end up taking him to the Frothy Mug.

Loghren and Andraste enter first to try and convince Kallor to let them keep the Drow in one of the spare rooms. He agrees to let them use one of the empty bedrooms, as long as they “keep it down.” Loghren shows his gratitude with gold, while ANdraste shows hers with her girlish charm.

The party bickers about what they should do with the Drow, and in the end they decide to trick him into giving up information. Andraste heals him, Dawn alarms the room, and the party rests for the night.

Darkest Before the Dawn

A few hours after the hunt, the party moves into Loghren’s room so they can discuss the demon gorilla, as well as Taman’s kidnapping. Andraste reveals to the group that the gorilla was likely drow in origin, and it sounds similar to some of the legends she heard as a child. Taman describes how we was kidnapped, and who did it. Loghren, for the life of him, can’t seem to recall who Rot is, or how Rot is connected to his past. Andraste also tells the group that she was spotted by the bowyer she and Taman stole the Quiver of Ehlonna from, and he likely suspects her for stealing it. The group decides to hide the Quiver in the Hall of the Silver Lady.

Before they leave, Andraste lends Taman a set of very special daggers sentiment wise, at least and several arrows. Loghren and Alex snoop outside the door nosy much?.

As they head for the Hall of the Silver Lady, Andraste spots a thieves’ mark on a nearby building, and follows it alone while the others poorly attempt to look casual. Andraste enters a small garden-like area. There, she encounters a lone man, who warns her that the company she is keeping is attracting a lot of unwanted attention. Before he leaves, he also tells her that there may be something of interest to her by the waterside.

At the temple, Alex attempts to convince Sister Mary to hide the Quiver. Despite Sister Mary’s obvious distaste for Andraste wow. rude. I haven’t even robbed her yet, she agrees to stow the Quiver.

The group heads for the party at the castle is it a castle, or a palace??. On the castle grounds, Andraste spots a row of flowers that seem to emanate a magical aura, a nearby building seems to emanate a similar aura. Inside, the party reluctantly hands over their weapons (save for their daggers).

They take a boat (??) deeper into the palace, and eventually wind up in a grand hall of sorts. As the party is sitting and enjoying the feast, a woman sits next to Loghren and introduces herself as Dawn. As they’re making friendly chatter, an elven man grabs Taman’s attention.

The man introduces himself as Envoy Falondin La’Thom, and claims he works with Taman’s father. According to Falondin, Taman’s father never had children after Taman, as he couldn’t handle the guilt. Falondin agrees to send a message to Taman’s father, and also offers to help in any way he can just wanna say this is suspicious as hell.

Meanwhile Alex and Cathna move the dance floor. Alex is absolutely terrible at dancing, but Cathna probably doesn’t mind. Loghren leaves the group to speak with Droba, leaving Andraste, Taman, and Dawn at the table. Taman pulls out the glaive blade they got from the gnolls in the Red Thicket and asks Andraste to present it to Clovis . Remembering what happened during the Hunt, she politely refuses. Dawn, after some convincing, agrees to present it to him. Afterward, Andraste asks Taman to dance, and they’re also terrible at it i’m starting to think the Red Knot just can’t dance.

King Graewyn soon stops the music, and asks everyone not involved in the Hunt to leave (excluding Dawn, or course). After everyone leaves, Dawn steps forward and shares that Rasdralith (??) is returning. Most, however, seem to dismiss her claim. Taman backs her up, and presents Hamas’s pauldron and the story of the wyvern as proof of the dragons’ return. The two princes, Aeron and Aedin, bicker about what should be done about the dragons. Loghren also tells of his fight with drow demon gorilla, and its drow origins.

Soon after, everyone who doesn’t have a lunarglyph, save for Paito-Maito and Dawn, are told to leave, forcing Andraste and Taman to finally reveal their glyphs we would’ve gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for you meddling kings. After everyone leaves, the party tells the king of Hamas’s missive, and the drow attacks along the King’s Road. Loghren also presents his spear should i rewrite that sentence…? nahhh, which will be studied in the Antiquarium.

The King asks the group to help Aedin scout the monastery Hamas described no need to thank me for remembering the monastery, it’s all in a day’s work before they are led out by the prince. Before they leave, Aedin asks Dawn for help, and she agrees to travel with them. He also asks the party to meet him at the iron manufactury the next day.

On the way out, Taman is stopped from picking one of the magical flowers outside the palace suspicious….

As the party heads back to the Frothy Mug, a light falls in front of them and explodes, severely hurting Loghren and slightly Andraste.

The Red Knot is Defeated by Paito-Fuckin-Maito

At the start of the second round of the Festival of the Hunt, Loghren encounters a demonic ape creature, along with an unconscious Festival participant. The creature flees through the city, but Loghren chases after it. As he fights it, the other members of the Red Knot have various other encounters throughout the city, including : an endless horde of goblins, giant wasps, several cockatrices, an owlbear or two, an ogre, and a gnoll that gnoll was EVIL. Alex is saved from a life as a statue by Cathna, who agrees to team up with him Alex and Cathna sittin in tree…. At one point, Andraste attempts to teleport to Alex for some much needed healing, but instead winds up on a cliff side.

Towards the end of the Hunt, Taman is stopped by a man wearing a strange wooden mask and his partner. They demand to know where Loghren is. When Taman doesn’t tell them anything, they decide to send Loghren a message, and chase Taman down. Despite a casting of Spike Growth, the strange men eventually catch up to Taman, at knock him out _rest in pieces Taman it was nice knowing you-.

Meanwhile, on the other side of town, Andraste sees the man who sold her the Burning Bow in the crowd – I honestly can’t, for the life of me, remember this guy’s name-. He doesn’t say anything to her, but he gives her a look that says “I totally know you stole my stuff” _ITS FINE GUYS I HAVE AN ALIBI- before disappearing into the crowd.

Taman eventually wakes up, and realizes he’s being dragged through the city.He’s left tied up alone(?) in a dark room, until a dwarf with super-gross teeth enters. He introduces himself as Rot somehow I don’t think that’s the name his mom gave him, and offers Taman a deal: he’ll set Taman free if he lures Loghren to Rot. Taman “agrees” and is set free, minus his fancy new handaxe, and all his ammunition.

In the last round of the Hunt, Andraste is murdered by evil emus, and Alex and Cathna run into a giant wolf (as well as a dying Q’yantee). Alex saves Q’yantee, and after an epic, long, and totally amazing battle that I was definitely there for, Alex kills the wolf thing, marking the end of the Hunt.

Everyone is gathered up in a backstage kind of area, and Loghren, Alex, and Taman reunite. They find Andraste in the infirmary, nursing her wounds. As Loghren tells the party, about the strange gorilla demon monstrosity, Andraste is able to recognize it as a creature summoned from another world. She tells Loghren she’ll tell him more about them later on, when they aren’t surrounded by strangers.

They’re then led to a stage and the winners are announced. To everyone’s eternal disappointment, Paito Maito takes first place, followed by Bruga of Tarth that’s totally her name, then the Red Knot’s very own Alex. Before they head off to drink away their sorrows, the party is informed of a party being held for all participants of the Hunt. You know, we may not have won. but the important thing is that at least one of us placed higher than Clovis!
