Day of Forgiveness
Along the way, we learn that the new woman is Linni – back from the land of the dead. She has two silver blades, Harbringer blades; and is no longer a tiefling. Now she is human.
Trollan says they are abyssil demons called Dredges. He claims that holy weapons work well against them and that we should use thunder instead of lightning against them. They can unleash clouds of poisonous gas. We receive the blessings of Athena, and we move in. The fight does not last long, and other than retreating to the corridor until the gas fades, we are undeterred.
In the room beyond we find a blue pulsing sphere. There are glyphs in the floor and walls that seem to relate to teh Abyss. Around the base of hte globe are 13 captives. All are cut by a number of slashes; most are weak, one has collapsed and all are injured.
From the far door, a demon walks in. Eki punches him. They fight. Zoe tries to free the victims. A group of smaller demons enter the room and engage Chryseis and Eki. When the smaller demons die, they release a plume of acid. The acid kills the captives. Amidst the chaos a beautiful woman enters the room through the door on the opposite side of the room.
She tries to convince Trollan that she’s the Lady, but he sees through her illusion.
Trollan attacks the globe and invokes the lady’s name. We assist.
She unsheathes her sword and says “Slide, slide into the Abyss. Leave your cage behind.” She then kills the first captive. Chryseis moves to stop her.
Then Sougad enters. Linni rolls under the globe and attacks him. Sougade calls the angel Nariel.
