After killing Scooby Doo in hound archon form, the group takes a nap with rotating watches. A knock comes at the door, it's Rhona Staelish. She asks for Cimri. People get woke and Cimri comes to the door. No one is listening to their conversation as Rhona tells Cimri that it's not too late and this isn't who she is, and no one's listening when Cimri says "you're wrong" and kills her aunt. Cimri and Dan loot her aunt's body and pitch it over the edge of the treefort.
Rhona had said that if they came to the chapel at the end and hurt no one else, they also would not be harmed. Cimri rejects this and drives the group to assault and defeat their enemy.
Dan has a short conversation with a wounded fellow behind a door and, after gaining temporary trust, stabs him dead. There is some lack of leadership. The group finds themselves in a chapel, face to face with Visserene, the Angel Knight. She gives a dumb speech and asks her assistant Ardin to pull a lever. Dan and Cimri fall 40 feet to the ground as the Angel Knight and Ardin draw weapons. They recognize Ardin as the halfling from Fort Estazano, sans manticore.
There's some climbing, some shooting, some rope-wrangling, and a lot of laughter. Shinshatterer goes invisible and corners their two enemies. Arso hits the Angel Knight with 6 rounds of hideous laughter, and Shinman finishes the job. Ardin calls to the heart of the wood, and a dryad temporarily comes in to her aid. It ends with Dan murdering Ardin the runaway slave, and the dryad returns to its wood. The group leaves the body of the Angel Knight and her friends where they are.
The group loots and returns to Fex, their mission complete. The seditionists are gone, their will is broken, and the Glorious Reclamation is removed from Longacre. Everyone gets paid and Fex talks briefly about a new job, a better rank, and a bright future.
There will be none of those things. Dan's player passed away shortly after this session.
We all grew to loathe and love these characters simultaneously, but this was Dan's campaign. He was the proponent for its play, and over the last six months we all got to see him grow from the player who we had to drag forward into the player who dragged us forward. Seeing him grow in this way is an experience I would not give up for anything. I'm just glad to have been along for the ride.
