“There, there they are” the Wayfarer murmured to Loren. Standing alone with the fey sorcerer in his sanctuary, the paladin of Mishakal watched with teary eyes as the image of his beautiful elven wife Isolde and his young son, Peradur coalesced from the green mist inside the Wayfarer's crystal ball. “Quite alright as you can see,” he said, relieved.
The Wayfarer had struggled to find Loren's family in the River at first, but after his initial attempt to conjure their images failed he changed his tactics. Still a sickly gray color and sweating from his first failure the old man had focused his powers, chanting strange musical words as his hands danced about the surface of the floating globe. This new spell brought more color to the old man's face and more confidence to his voice
Whatever magic the Wayfarer had conjured had done the trick. For the first time in what felt like an eternity Loren saw his wife bouncing his son on her knee. They looked happy, no more ignorant of his absence then if he'd left them to visit the village nestled in the valley below Dargaard Keep for the afternoon. Isolde's hazel eyes smiled with the rest of her face as they always did. The toddler was tugging awkwardly at his mother's long dirty blond hair and laughing a silent laugh that Loren could hear in his head as clear as a bell. It was a beautiful and short-lived moment.
Just as quickly as Isolde and Peradur had appeared they were gone, leaving Loren and the Wayfarer alone in the fey sorcerer's shadowy scrying chamber.
DM Speak: Okay, so the remove curse scroll did not alleviate Luccia's cursed wounds. However, the stuff Beldyn blocked off in the planner will take care of it and she'll heal normally from now on. It is the “morning” after yesterday and Beldyn as already treated Luccia's injuries. Everybody's healed up!
