The weather is still cold, but it’s slowly getting warmer with Spring well on its way. The day light hours are as long as those of the night, but the nights are getting shorter. In the Wellsorrow Region, the Shadowfell despair is fading in its cycle. The people of Ashbourne and surrounding areas are feeling happier and it’s easier to shake the despair, and harder to fall under its influence. There is a half moon in the night sky tonight. A red comet will be visible throughout most of the night.

Shadowfell Despair Check: DC 9/15

Miranda’s thoughts ranged from how she could extract revenge on al’Zand, how to find Rosana again, or should she even, why did she care to how she could free her self from her patron?

A voice echoed in her head with a dissonant whisper I can free you.

“What?” Miranda said out loud. No one was near in these early hours thankfully.

The whisper sounded again I can free you. Save you from the dept you owe. See your child again.

The voice made promises. Miranda doubted the first, but the last was her ultimate wish. To see her son again. She whispered, “What do I need to do?”

Just accept

“I do.”

Miranda swooned with a rush of power as it flooded her veins. A new power arose inside and Miranda grinned with malintent. “Now what?” 

Rest my dear, all will come to light.

Miranda followed the instructions and went upstairs to their shared room. The boys were awake, the ugly creature was helping the dark elf with something in the corner. The strange boy was brewing something — the thing Rosana wanted. She’d left after he had given it to al’Zand.

al’Zand curled up on the floor in his bedroll and Miranda felt a pang of worry, but the new power inside tipped her into bed. “I need a few hours to sleep. Keep it down.” She said gruffly.
