Session One Hundred Six: Creatures of the Forest Ridge

Rafiq was physically, but not mentally exhausted. He mentally connected to Dimitria and had her give him the location of her guarded lands. Using the way, he was able to remotely view her guarded lands and then find his way south, to the Lost Oasis. This turned out to be taxing than he thought and he had to meditate for a few minutes, to regain some mental strength.
Without warning, a huge, hairy beast leapt onto Clavis and bit him. The group was completely surprised. The beast was fast and blood thirsty, Dimitria recognized it as a sloth.
The sloth was vicious and, even when badly wounded, refused to give up. The group took some serious wounds, but were able to defeat the creature. Magically healing was applied and the group moved from the area, afraid the noise would attract more animals or, worse, more halflings.
As they moved off, they talked about what to do next. When Dimitria mentioned that they knew two of the gems were near Tyr, Rafiq asked them what they were talking about. Yusef protested, but Dimitria introduced Rafiq and Selia to the Lord of the Mind. She then explained how the gems worked and that their goal was to destroy the ogre doom. Rafiq and Selia asked what an ogre was and they told them what they knew about the extinct race. When Selia touched the Lord of the Mind, the memories of Julius, transferred to her mind.

Session One Hundred-Five: The Halflings of the Forest Ridge

As the group approached the mountain peaks, rain began falling from the sky. The group was amazed, as they had only experienced rain twice in their lives. Kraah decided to inspect the rain clouds and flew into them. The rest of the group took the opportunity to bathe themselves in the falling water.
Suddenly, Kraah found himself in strange place. The sky was dark, but he could see lightning flashing between clouds and rain pouring from one cloud to another. Being an air cleric, he knew something of the planes and realized he was on the Paraelemental Plane of Rain. What he was unsure  how he had arrived there. He began flying around to investigate.
While he was exploring, he saw a miniature sun and began flying toward it. As he flew toward it, the sun got bigger and bigger. Distances were difficult to gauge, as there was no horizon to compare objects to. He soon saw small flecks of something moving off of and around the sun. He wasn't sure what it could be.

Session One Hundred Four: The Forest Ridge

Selia looked toward the splashing noise, but it was difficult to see. Ral and Guthay were not lighting up the sky. She did spot some slight movement and called out, asking who was there. Suddenly, Selia found herself unable to move. She tried to grunt as loud as possible, but none of her companions awoke.
A woman emerged from the darkness and put a hand over Selia's mouth. She was shaped like a human, but had pointed ears. Selia was colorblind, so the woman's skin looked gray and her hair appeared black. The woman told Selia to be quiet, that she would not be harmed.
The woman then asked Selia if she, or the group, were there to befoul her water. She also told Selia that she was reading her mind and Selia only had to think an answer. Selia answered no.
The woman asked about the group's reasons for being there and Selia, who could not lie, told her what she knew. The woman released Selia from the magical paralyzed state and asked her to wake up Dimitria, so they could talk further. She said her name was Raaza.
Dimitria was awakened and she and Selia talked to Raaza. Raaza said she was a creature of water, called an Avasori. She then told them that she was the guardian of the pool and the pool was very important to the elemental lords of water.

Session One Hundred Three: The Slave and His Noble

Day 13, Week 1, Fifthover, Friend's Vengeance, 190th King's Age, Sun Descending

The group awoke and Dimitria caught up with Selia, as they passed out their daily rations. Yusef had used some string to fasten Raco's skull to his severed wrist and was talking to it, as if Raco were still alive. Everyone worried about Yusef's mental state; he had lost three friends and his hand in a very short time.
The group returned to the cloud ray carcass and carved off the meat they thought they could carry, leaving the rest for vultures and other scavengers.
They continued their hike through the mountain and, after a few hours, came upon a ravine. They were prepared to navigate around the ravine, as they had done so many times before, when something caught Kraah's eye. He saw some unusual colors on an outcropping, inside the ravine. He flew closer and saw two human men huddled together.

Session One Hundred Two: The Cloud Ray Incident

They rested on the mountaintop for the rest of the day. Raco eventually woke up and they informed him that Cheet was dead. Also, that Kraah and Yusef were blinded. And Yusef was missing his left hand.
Dimitria told Yusef that Samsun had cut off his hand and Yusef was furious. Samsun apologized and told him it was an accident. Yusef understood, but was still upset.

Day 11, Week 1, Fifthover, Friend's Vengeance, 190th King's Age, Sun Descending

In the morning, Dimitria used her magic to restore Yusef's sight. Kraah used his own magic to restore his own sight. Yusef took Samsun's pound of goat butter and said it was his, because Samsun had cut off his hand. Samsun did not argue.
While they burned Cheet's body, the handed out food and water rations. Then, they scattered her ashes on the scant greenery of the mountain tops. Saying goodbye to Cheet one last time, the group hiked into the mountains.
