  1. Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 5/26 and 6/2] The ground was rumbling furiously the morning of the equinox. It was like our bones were rattling and our souls were shaking, and it was going pretty much nonstop by this point. “The time has come,” Aureon’s voice announced, though Aureon himself didn’t appear. “Leave this place and go to the surface. Walk without fear; you will climb with ease.” Nion, with his brand new griffon, had no interest in walking, but the rest of us found that wherever we stepped was solid ground, and we were able to just
  2. Excerpts from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 5/19 and 5/26] There was a round hill in the distance, at the other end of the gorge, with buildings on top. As we traveled, the ground began to rumble and, very slowly, the town rose from the ground—what we’d thought was a hill was actually a mechanical creation, like a massive warforged turtle, and it was getting up and walking off. Shaper remembered the lost Cannith workshop he’d heard about. However, the town was going in the wrong direction and we decided we had other things we more urgently needed to deal with; we didn’t really
  3. Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 4/21, 4/28, and 5/12] A wall of dense fog marked the start of the Mournland. There was also more of that red smoke, like from the weird orb we encountered on the side of the road, not too far in. As we approached, we heard the sound of slithering in some nearby bushes, and three large nagas emerged, pointing spears at us. “You must not go any further,” one said. “Even the most experienced adventurers perish in there.” Siscia gestured toward the smoke. “I think someone left me a message,” she said. Th
  4. Excerpts from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 4/14 and 4/21] Duriel had disappeared during the night, leaving a note indicating that they had “business to attend to” and would meet us all in Kyoria. This seemed weird and a bit suspicious, considering a god had literally sent us all a dream telling us not to split up, but they were already gone and it was too late to stop them. It took some discussion for us to figure out how we’d even get to Kyoria now that the guild hall was gone, but Eli thought he’d heard about a ruined shrine to Aureon a few days north of us with a teleport c
  5. Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 4/7] Woodhelm didn’t have anyplace big enough to house all of us, but the idea of sleeping in actual beds was still pretty appealing, so we split up into smaller groups for the night. I was with Siscia. I was woken up early in the morning by a massive crash, as if the place we were staying in had just been hit by a battering ram, and I jolted upright, momentarily thinking we were under attack—but no, it was just Siscia being weird. She had summoned a dryad for some reason, but the dryad—which was obviously part-tree, in this case a fa
  6. Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 3/10, 3/17, and 3/31] We received a message the next morning requesting our presence at the guild hall; it wasn’t as if we weren’t planning to go there anyway, but Kal seemed impatient. Before we left, though, I talked to Delphine again. She was still directing everything; it looked like progress had been made since last night, but there was still a lot of work to do. Delphine herself looked like she hadn’t slept. I started to say goodbye and basically ended up awkwardly confessing that I like her. She’s spent so much energy chasing af
  7. Some suggestions for related(ish) books: If you liked the plot premise and want to delve into the mystery surrounding another forgotten book, check out The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon [genre: historical fiction (mid 20th-century Barcelona)] If you liked the prose and thematic work, check out The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz, which has a similarly magic realist approach, makes liberal use of sci-fi/fantasy references, and also deals with the interconnectedness of stories. Get the audiobook, which is narrated by Lin-Manuel Miranda [genre: lit
  8. Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 1/13, 1/20, 2/10, 2/17, and 2/24] Sofia and Nym were waiting for us as we disembarked in Sharn, Sofia having gotten word of where we’d be from the guild after going to look for us there. Nion asked her how things were going in Sharn, and she told us about how the cleansing was done and the clean-up, although not totally done yet, was getting there. She said most of the phoenixes were scattered in other cities where there were still shadow minions that needed to be brought under control; hardly any of them were here. She see
  9. Excerpts from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 12/30 and 1/13] When Nion went below deck, as he explained later, he discovered Shaper and Steel Defender on the ground, half slumped over. Shaper pointed weakly at one of the cabins and seemed to be trying to say something, but he passed out before he managed to do so. Nion went over to him and found that one of those incapacitating devices had been affixed to him, just like in Trolanport. He looked in the direction Shaper had been pointing and saw Duriel also lying on the ground, looking as if they had been beaten to a pulp.

  11. Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 12/23 and 12/30] Ava was no longer outside my door in the morning, but I found her on the dock as we made our way off the gangplank. She was sitting there, whispering to herself, the same phrase over and over. It sounded like the same language as the previous night, but this time I couldn’t translate it myself. She didn’t notice me at first; she seemed like she was in some sort of trance. Thelonia approached and informed us that a horde of shadow minions had appeared on the opposite coast, also about a day from the forest.
  12. Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 12/16] Today we finally reached the City of the Dead, Shae Mordai. It wasn’t as sprawling or as tall as Sharn, but it was big enough, especially in contrast to all the nothing we passed over to get to it. The sibling kings’ fortress towered above everything else; this was our first destination. Two semi-corporeal spirits approached us as we docked, one male and one female. “You’re late,” the male one said bluntly. “Only the Chosen may enter; everyone else must stay on the ship.” “Don’t be rude,” the female one s
  13. Excerpts from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 12/9] [The afternoon following the second predecessor dream] Eli is back. He’s huge now, his body totally taken over by hulking muscle, but he seems to be in decent spirits. He also brought Ezra’s axe with him. He said it had been about two and a half years, from his perspective, since he’d departed through the portal. Annie had bought his family’s farm, so all the stuff he’d left was still there, except his parents, who had been killed shortly after he’d left. Annie herself died a year and a half ago; “She was old; it’s a
