Redmon’s Requiem: Session 4 — Fire & Water

Peron, Nammosi, and their newfound compatriot, Alva Einhorne, had found themselves confronting a twenty-five foot Wicker Man filled with the skeletal remains of sacrificial victims and an infernal hellfire. The accursed construct unleashed a Fireball that drove the thee of them away from the sacred grove. Alva dove into the nearby river to extinguish the flames, the proceeded to warn those in the nearby barn. Peron climbed atop its roof to survey the surroundings. Nammosi, on the other hand, as she fled alongside them was suddenly bathed in a celestial light, lifting her into the sky where she was consumed by its brilliance…

Young Onfri was severely wounded and seeing them routed, Cassandra escaped through the baron’s quarters. Baron Onfri himself returned from Banishment once Elrian’s spell was disrupted. He and his son escaped, with Kari in pursuit.
