The party gradually made their way out of the Vein Maze, defeating vampires, zombies, and creatures made of pure madness along the way. They made their way to Yazadoun’s Folly, a campsite for adventurers seeking fortune within the ruins of Vor Kragal. They spent the night there only to find that Derreth and Lyrabel had fallen comatose. Idria, a deva at the campsite, examined them and determined that some ill had befallen Derreth and passed into Lyrabel via their connection as twins within a magical bloodline.
On the road, they responded to what seemed to be an emergency involving some ogres, but which turned out to be a cunning ambush set by an eladrin, the ogres he had cowed into service, and his pet owlbear.
There was some other stuff involving riding along the trade road and realizing there were no eastbound caravans, but who cares about that? OWLBEAR. Hell yes.
