Jack-a-Nory and his snoring brother, the two headed ivory giant, have been convinced to take up their position to work the gears to close the snake river. Half of the quest seems completed.
The crew fought wraith gladiators for a pile of treasure. Defeated a combined army of imp and goblins. They battled dancing cultists (at DefMod 5). They met the Lambda Zaire who taught them how to add a permanent pool of water under their boat to sail in this magical land, letter of the law. They crossed thousands upon thousands of dull miles and endless lightless days navigating the underworld rivers. We also skipped crossing the chasm of lava, because Halfmoon is no fun. Someone remind him to check Prudence.
But to bury the lead no longer, Bjion has gone to Valhalla. He gained his seventh Trait and ascended. His cousin, Demigod Frode, carries the risen one’s sword and rides his horse. The bear-man will be missed.
