The Academy of the Horizon-Walkers was a bloodbath wrought by the Red Knight when he had come through this way. Among the dead Gnolls and Humans was a Vrock demon which attacked the party and the fighting drew Diega, a Fighter who had been hiding from it in the recesses of the Academy. 

Fighting a Vrock.

Diega had been part of a hastily assembled defense force against the Red Knight and his Flind companion which had stayed here to hunt the Ki-Rin, the Guardian Spirit of Mira. No match for the demon, she had been hiding for two days since the massacre. 

Amongst the fallen there was a golden sword which only the purehearted Sir Robb could handle. The Sword of Mira informed him empathically that it was meant for the Queen of Mira’s hands only and that he was now compelled to find a new Queen to wield it. 

First, however, the Ki-Rin had to be protected. The adventurers left the Academy and its observatory telescopes to walk upon the surface of Mira and her bronze rocks scattered across plains of gold. 

Saving the Ki-Rin.

They found the Ki-Rin shackled and being worn down by the Flind and its minions. As thanks for saving it, the Ki-Rin opened a passage into the caves of gold it called his its lair where they would be protected from the heat of the approaching sun. 

Diomedes and Sir Robb leave the party on their own quest.

As payment for their help, the Ki-Rin offered to teleport everyone back to Hyracanum anywhere they wished. Diomedes joined Sir Robb on his Quest for the Queen of Mira while the rest chose to go after Diega’s own mission to recover a fabled Golden Calendar from the island realm of Kamanora.
