Cassandra, as the resident expert on the Faerie, attempted to meet with the neighbouring Faerie lord. At first, being attacked by shark-like beings, she returned with a number of grogs to assist her, led by Hawkeye. She was successful in finding an island, remarkably similar to Ore Island with one major exception – instead of the covenant, in the middle of the island stands a single standing stone with unusual markings, and a cave. Investigating the area, she figured out a ritual to enter the Faerie Lord’s castle.
Performing the ritual, she and her men found themselves on a bridge leading to the castle. Entering the Faerie lord’s castle. The Faerie lord’s arrogance and Cassandra’s poor diplomacy resulted in an altercation – resulting in Cassandra vomiting water and one of the grogs being enscorcelled.
At the same time, Bran went investigating the new lands and ran into a mysterious forest boy. The boy didn’t speak any language Bran knew and communication was a failure. In the process, Bran slightly terrorized a neighbouring village.
Two weeks went by without Cassandra and her troop returning. As a result, another contentious council meeting occurred about what to do regarding the Faerie Lord, and the covenant prepared for war. Then Cassandra returned, finding a beautiful urn filled with blue roses and a scroll, which would only open with a knife in the council-chambers.
The scroll, by Lord Amairgar said simply: “The Lady Cassandra amuses me. Prepare for my embassy”.
