Grandmaster Tibalt, came through the portal before the Battle of Fellcrest, with reinforcements. He brought with him Kaliste, an experienced adventurer (played by Kathleen). Her input helped the heroes plan their defenses against the invading forces. The Blackstaves and Orcs were defeated, but the heroes were cornered on the Five-Arch Bridge. There they faced off against Hekate in both Black Dragon and Human form. Kaliste ended up making the killing blow, but not before the dreaded witch could kill Andraste, the half-dragon ally of the heroes. Losing Tibalt, Mara, and Andraste left Bhelle and Martel feeling defeated, but they gathered the last shard with the intent to continue their quest. Meanwhile, Taurion returned to the Everdusk Grove to make sure the curse was removed upon Hekate’s death.
The current Seer for the Adventurer’s Guild in Winterhaven directed the Bhelle, Martel, and Kaliste to the Pillers of Reality where they could use the Dweomerheart to make a single wish. The Seer warned them about the wording of the wish and so a lot of thought was put into how they proceeded. The wish verbatim was: “I wish that Halaster Blackstaff had never existed.” When the three heroes emerged in Winterhaven, they found differences in the world they thought they knew.
The heroes went to Briarstone to find the Seer from the old world. After doing so, they ended up staying in an Inn (The Fearsome Slippers) infested with cats. Upon meeting the “Inn owner” with the one eye, they purchased three cots and three trunks in the sleeping room. When they awoke the next morning all their possessions had been taken. Searching for the thief they found out from a Briarstone citizen that the Fearsome Slippers had been condemned due to the feline problem. Conned out of their belongings the group broke into an abandoned Wizard’s shop, and mistakenly cornered themselves in the basement with a fire elemental without weapons or armor. They barely survived the conflict, but found a secret storage tunnel below the basement lab.
