Disguised as beggars by illusion, the party avoided the wrath of the city guards chasing after the murderers of Sir Jalred and the magistrate. Nevertheless, Boralin found himself addressed directly by a wealthy stranger who seemed to see through the magic. This Jackerel was an esteemed associate of Charna Khan, Boralin’s boss. Known to Boralin as the Lord of Doors, he needed adventurers to unlock an interplanar gate by slaying its guardian. 

Jackerel conjured a portal by which they could step through to a remote island in Lake Tamoa three thousand miles to the west. Once they had killed the guardian and opened the gate, they were free to go about their business, far, far away from their troubles. Of course, they accepted. 

Mernpool and Rhodedendron spot a pair of Elves.

Their first night on the mist-shrouded island, Mernpool met some Elves who told him the guardian was a Unicorn. Rhodedendron, already homesick and now faced with killing a Unicorn, quit the party and returned to Elfland at dawn. The rest of the group decided to leave the island on a boat, one of many they found washed ashore which were used by a nearby lakeside town to send tributes to the island. They sailed for it and found everyone in a horrific communion where children were being sacrificed to a Wyvern! 

Boralin and Mernpool fight while the Wyvern attacks the crowd.

Mernpool’s Good conscience forced him to act, but Boralin was compelled by his Evil nature to thwart the hero by calling for guards. It was Gloucester who attacked the monster with spells. Panic and chaos set in when the Wyvern swooped down on the crowd looking for its attacker, while Mernpool and Boralin were at each other’s throats.

Raz managed to land the killling blow on the second dragon-kin of her career, but when Mernpool was killed by Boralin, she ran with the rest of the party back to the boat. Their Dragonborn ex-comrade led the chase in another boat rowed by town guards and got close enough to jump the gap, but Raz, Feti, Gloucester and Sargael attacked and killed him, ransacking his equipment before dumping his body overboard.
