Studying their map of Thousand Breaths The Founders decide to make for a white tower believing that it is the lair of the great black wrym Uthuliac. A long journey takes them back through a number of locations that they have already explored before entering new territory. In a clearing they find a large house that seems to have been created by a number of different houses fused together. On the porch of the house The Founders meet a Black Hag. The Founders (primarily Kesh) speaks to the hag and they learn that she is an unwilling servant of Nyrissa who has stolen the hag’s heart as leverage. The Founders also learn that the Hag is a priestess of Gyronna and has sent her acolytes to bedevil Aznagar in the past.
Battle breaks out between The Founders and the hag and her earth elemental allies. The Founders destroy the elements but the hag, though injured, escapes using a Word of Recall. The Founders search the hag’s house believing that she may have fled there. They find grizzly evidence of the hag’s evil deeds and appetites but not the hag herself. The Founders put the house to the torch.
Sergei is able to use his Touch of Calm to refresh The Founders allowing them press on. Soon they find another clearing with a white tower in the center. Surrounding the tower are thousands of broken statues which The Founders recognize as a representation of the horde of monsters that attacked Stag’s Fort. The Founders are attacked by Ithuliak and a protracted aerial battle follows. The dragon makes use of her mighty defenses and superior speed to make a series of hit-and-run attacks but The Founders are slowly able to wear her down and kill her.
With the death of Ithuliak The Founders have destroyed enough Pillars to destabilize Thousand Breaths and the pocket dimension collapses.
