Demise and her Emerald Claw plots have been thwarted, and all that remains now is to decide upon the fate of the Ashen Crown. Just as the heroes begin cleaning up the mess in Ashurta’s tomb, two newcomers enter the room: the hobgoblin priest of the Sovereign Host Olaakki, and the Kech Volaar goblin Govaan, who apparently survived Tikulti’s treachery. Olaakki congratulates the heroes and prompts them to decide on the Crown. With the help of Keira and Nissa, Gydd performs the Rite of Arkantaash, the ritual to conjoin the fragments of the Ashen Crown. Once complete, the Crown is finally whole in Keira’s hands. And with the group’s decision to give it to Govaan and the Kech Volaar, the Chosen of the Gray Mist complete their mission. Breland will have its wish to a more peaceful neighbor in the future.
After returning to Captain Kalaes and receiving a reward, the heroes each spent a few days of rest and relaxation. But the break proved to be full of more intrigue as they prepare to turn their attention towards Jurgen Rivnor and the Son of Khyber. Each of them receive news or are met with challenges that will prove to shape the coming days, if not their lives. Soon they will come together to discuss the meaning of these portents, and decide on a course of action.
