Year 5 Day 65
Weather: Mild. Misty
Hexes Explored: None
Leaving Pavo and their horses with Belldame The founders walk to Candlemere Lake. Rowing to the island they find landing difficult due to the sheer cliffs that make up the islands shore as well as the thick mists and ever-present Willow-Wisps.
When The Founders do finally manage to land their boat they find the remains of a Pathfinder expedition. From journals found in the camp, later backed up by their own discoveries, The Founders discover that Candlemere Island was once an Azlanti centre of magical and planier study known as Nal-Yanhei.
The Founders head inland looking for a damaged orrery that may be the source of the Willow-wisp infestation. Aldous, Alex, Kesh and Sergei fall victim to a will-sapping effect and Lynessa and Josiman are faced with a constant battle keeping them moving.
The Founders find the orrery only to be set upon by malicious, winged, fungi creatures that even Lynessa cannot identify. After a fierce battle The Founders kill three of the fungi-creatures and drive of the fourth.
The Founders decide that they must repair the orrery and begin to search the island for the knowledge and parts they need. In doing so they discover the “creature” responsible for their weakened state of mind: an animated colour. The Founders do battle with the parasitic pigment, as well as a cluster of Willow-wisps, and it retreats back to the stars.
