Hexes Explored: None
The Founders arrive in the forested realm of Thousand Breaths. It soon become clear that the realm is in perpetually twilight. The portal they used to enter the pocket dimension does not exist on the far side, The Founders will have to find another way back.
Josiman discovers it is impossible to fly above the trees. Travelling other than on the paths is all but impossible.
Using the map in Zudiger’s Picnic The Founders attempt to navigate their way to Nyrissa’s castle.
The Founders find a lake with a whirlpool similar to The First Bloom where they are attacked by four Black Lightening Treants. After The Founders dispatch the Treants the whole of Thousand Breaths shakes. Lynessa hypothesizes that there are multiple “Pillars”, corresponding to the Blooms, which sustain the demi-plane of Thousand Breaths. While the outcome of destroying all of the Pillars is unclear Lynessa believes that it may bring the entire realm to The Prime Material Plane and weaken Nyrissa. The Founders decide that they will do what they can to destroy the Pillars before confronting Evindra.
Travelling further into Thousand Breaths The Founders find a frozen graveyard. Here they are confronted by, and slay, a second Pillar in the form of Kargstaad; self-proclaimed “Greatest of All Giants”.
Carrying on The Founders find another Pillar in the form of The Nightmare Rook. This time The Nightmare Rook has physical body. During the battle The Rook snatched Alex and deposits him in an unknown location in Thousand Breaths before returning to the battle. The remaining Founders are able to kill The Nightmare Rook.
An injured Alex finds himself alone in a mire where he is attacked by three Mire Worms. They leave him for dead. Lynessa is able to scry Alex’s location and teleports The Founders to him. Sergei is able to heal the badly injured Alex and The Founders battle the Mire Worms, who are another Pillar.
Keeping track of time in Thousand Breaths seems difficult but The Founders are beginning to become fatigued and low on spells. They return to the area where they battled The Nightmare Rook in order to rest.
