Out of the frying pan…

Within the midst of battle, Ekon is compelled to method the grotesque Seataur type of Polodio, Kyshaar’s once-pet fish. Ekon is angrily conscious that he has been charmed by the creature. He manifests a Third-level ice knife and plunges it into his personal chest, inflicting a burst of ice shards. Murdina takes Polodio’s share of the injury, having supplied him half cowl together with her wings.

Nikhil, being attentive to different individuals for the primary time in his life, notices that Malini and Sestia are lacking. He is aware of there’s a approach again into The Trying Glass, however the specifics of it elude him. As a substitute, he meditates on the deities from the legend Malini advised to him — Sahengaria, Aagshni, and Nassavani. As he repeats the names as if a mantra, a masculine determine seems inside his thoughts: one with lengthy, darkish hair, wrapped in furs and flowing saffron-colored robes, and bearing a chilly expression of amusement. Nikhil realizes he’s been unfortunate sufficient to draw the eye of Nassavani, the Lord of Destiny.

Nassavani speaks to Nikhil: “You gotta use your head.” Nikhil, shocked, imagines head-butting him. The god hints that Nikhil can get to Malini utilizing her damaged horns, that are nonetheless in his possession. Nikhil presents to point out the “huge, unhealthy Destiny Daddy” an excellent time if he helps Nikhil discover the others, however Nassavani refuses. “Destiny’s written within the stars,” Nassavani says. He prefers Sestia. Nikhil presents his sister’s horns to the god as a substitute, who takes them and disappears.

Leila leveled upIn the meantime, Lenore is looking for new aquatic buddies for Polodio however solely manages to collect some phytoplankton.

Leila hears the names being muttered by Nikhil and — inserting on her head the coronet she carries — invokes the deities’ names. Her kind modifications the second the coronet touches her forehead, and the others see her disappear. She reappears in the identical void she inhabited in her reminiscence, below the gaze of the good celestial physique as soon as extra, although far nearer than earlier than. She sees darkish tongues lashing out from throughout the physique’s gaze, pulling her ever nearer. (By way of her transformation, Leila positive factors 10 further ranges within the warlock class.)

Polodio summons a whirlpool within the surrounding waters, restraining Ekon. Ekon pleads with Murdina to battle in opposition to Polodio, calling her a coward for her restraint in battle. Murdina considers putting at Ekon however recollects vaguely that sure creatures of the depths entice prey with a charismatic lure. In her intestine, she believes that the actual Polodio may be held below duress, compelled by this bigger creature to behave as bait. “Polodio, if you happen to hear me, inform me the place you’re!” she shouts, slicing into Seataur.

Sestia, cuddled up cozily with Tovayu in her reminiscence, nonetheless has a nagging feeling that she is forgetting one thing. As her thoughts wanders, she notices the disconnect between her present scenario and the occasions of the unique reminiscence and begins to select aside the logic. Nonetheless hazy on how she obtained right here, Sestia is aware of that this isn’t what actually occurred, and tells Tovayu that she has to go away.

Sestia goodbye gif

Sestia finds an open doorway, however past it sees Nassavani skipping towards her, holding Malini’s horns to his head. Under her, Sestia sees her companions in battle, as if an upside-down reflection. Nassavani tells Sestia that she virtually died, though it appears to be like to him like she will handle herself. Sestia doesn’t see Malini within the reflection under, and Nassavani is delighted to see the battle on her face. He gleefully asks Sestia who she’s going to assist and reminds her that Nikhil would most likely by no means forgive her if she left Malini right here.

Nassavani alludes to the truth that Sahengaria and Aagshni are at present talking with Leila, and says that he doesn’t actually like Leila. Sestia chooses to assist Malini, however has a second of panic, questioning if she selected accurately. The ground beneath Sestia’s toes turns strong, and Nassavani tells her, “No take-backs.” He reminds Sestia that she is dying, and begins to skip away. Sestia continues to take psychic injury.

Ekon remains to be caught within the whirlpool. Nikhil, having religion in Sestia and Malini, rockets towards Seataur. He strikes twice together with his lance, utilizing his Divine Smite on each hits, whereas calling to Murdina, “Do you now get that the fish is unhealthy?” Seataur loses focus on sustaining the whirlpool.

Lenore casts spirit guardians, which take the type of little fish. She tries to persuade Seataur to come back meet his “new buddies,” however he’s drooling over Murdina standing proper in entrance of him. Lenore casts protect of religion on herself.

As Leila’s land mass ever approaches the celestial physique earlier than her, she calls to it, “So that you deign to answer me…” The chilly, distant female face of Sahengaria seems within the star and asserts to Leila that she obtained what she wished. The face of Aagshni replaces the primary, reminding Leila she was created from Sahengaria’s personal finger; each want has a price. Nassavani’s face takes over, asking, “However you’re joyful, aren’t you?” Leila is joyful, however now she cares extra in regards to the happiness of others.

She asks what the gods want for. “We solely wished to maintain you protected,” says Aagshni. “We simply wished you to outlive our falling.” Sahengaria returns to the forefront and confesses that they didn’t notice that Polakott can be put within the path of an older god, one who consumes all the things, and with whom they’re in an ongoing battle. They’ve been distracting this god with the video games, permitting him to feed on the power and laughter, in return consuming solely the opposite realms and leaving Polakott alone. Leila presents that she and her companions can face this god of their stead, however that in the event that they win, they every get their want granted. The gods settle for, and Leila is thrust again to the grotto.

Seataur swipes twice at Murdina with its claws, raking deep furrows in her armor, earlier than critically hitting her with its chunk. She parries the ultimate blow and stays acutely aware, the creature’s enamel buried in her shoulder. Murdina grasps the angler lure and hacks it off, and Seataur shrieks because it retreats into the water past. Contained in the translucent lure is a bit cuttlefish; Polodio is protected!

Oh, hewwo! gif

Murdina glares accusingly at Ekon and Nikhil, over their remedy of Polodio. Ekon is already asleep on the ground. Nikhil uncharacteristically apologizes to Murdina and asks if he can do the identical for Polodio. He leans in shut, whispering to the cuttlefish in Infernal, “I’m onto your ass,” and unleashes a quiet tirade of suspicion. Nikhil then picks up the sleeping Ekon and cheerfully calls to everybody in Widespread, “I’m glad all of us healed right here immediately.” Murdina feels her armor glimmer a bit as a few of her guilt over actions in her previous melts away, and Kyshaar rushes over to embrace her and Polodio.

Whereas Lenore, Leila, and Murdina sit within the restorative spa, Nikhil returns Ekon to their chambers and units off to search out the mirror that holds Sestia and Malini. He stares into it and is assaulted by a model of himself. He assaults again, however his mirror picture requires a truce. They interact in a battle of wits as a substitute; neither of them wins. Mirror-Nikhil acknowledges that the actual Nikhil is appearing in another person’s pursuits reasonably than his personal, and upon studying that this particular person is Malini, steps apart and lets Nikhil by way of.

…And into the fireplace

In the meantime, Sestia is strolling with Nassavani, who tells her that he’s been eaten by a god, however that they’re nonetheless additionally locked in battle. Sestia calls for to know extra, however Nassavani asks her to make a deal first. “I’ll inform you all the things I do know,” he proffers, “if you happen to bind your self to me.” Sestia accepts.

Sestia communes with Nassavani’s spirit; she sees an incredible potter at a wheel, shaping clay to his whim, and from that clay he varieties the constellations. Nassavani hints that he can do extra for Sestia if she does extra for him, however warns her to not let him down. He arms Sestia the tiefling horns he carries, and tells her that Malini wants her assist escaping, earlier than ushering her towards a door. (Sestia positive factors 7 further ranges within the bard class.)

Leila finds herself again in her quarters, which really feel darker and fewer welcoming than earlier than. A lady in painted leather-based seems to her. “I did the very best I might,” the lady speaks, including, “I’m proud you stood up for your self, and I hope you win.” Leila asks this lady — Sahengaria — what occurs in the event that they lose. She doesn’t know; she solely has one vote. Leila and Sahengaria share a sentimental second earlier than Leila offers the deity some recommendation: “It’s best to strive one thing new someday. It’s very liberating, in a number of methods… Simply be.”

In the meantime, Nikhil arrives in time to see Nassavani handing Malini’s horns to Sestia. Nassavani disappears, and Nikhil and Sestia embrace, throughout which Nikhil makes use of Lay on Arms to heal Sestia. He notices one thing in her has modified. The 2 step by way of the doorway to search out Malini tinkering in a workshop. When requested by Sestia what she is making, Malini exhibits her an unfinished protect and lance. Sestia casts steering, however Malini remains to be not sure of her work and discards them right into a pile of dozens of different unfinished items.

Sestia encourages Malini and gestures Nikhil over. Nikhil exhibits Malini his lance and tells her that she made it for him, pointing to the lotus flower she carved into it. “It’s like a prayer each time I have a look at it,” Nikhil tells her, “However to not a god. It’s a prayer to you, ‘trigger you’re the one factor that’s been wanting over me for an extended, very long time.” He makes use of his final spell slot to forged remedy wounds as he locations the damaged horns again on Malini’s head. Malini is out of the blue conscious of the place she is.

Sestia picks up a discarded protect that seems to be probably the most full. She makes use of her Efficiency of Creation to finish the piece. In its newly reflective floor, Malini sees that her horns have reattached, although not seamlessly — the place the horns have been damaged off beforehand, they’ve been fused with a golden mortar. Sestia tells Malini that Nikhil is one among her finest buddies, and asks to be her pal, too. Nikhil and Malini hug. The ground falls away, depositing them again of their quarters because the others return from the spa.

Collectively ‘til the tip

Earlier than the group lies a portal within the form of a mirror, bathing them in purple mild. Harpy seems to usher them by way of. Sestia asks Harpy if they will have a couple of minutes to speak amongst the group, however Harpy turns to interview Ekon earlier than this final match, latching onto his temporary point out of intra-team affairs. When requested who among the many group was an merchandise, Murdina grabs Sestia and kisses her; Ekon says they’re all “Workforce Sesdina” over right here. Murdina apologizes to the group for the difficulty she dragged them into.

I'm sure you haven't gif

The heroes discover that your entire ambiance of the competitors seems to have modified. Sestia tells all of them of her cope with Sahengaria. She apologizes for her half in all the things, and particularly to Nikhil and his individuals; she is a facet of a god who helped create this place, a convoluted try to proceed their battle in opposition to The Eldritch Devourer. Leila enlisted them into this closing battle. “And if we win?” asks Lenore. “I believe it’s the final win,” replies Sestia.

Leila thanks Ekon for his assist in rediscovering what true ambition ought to be used for. Lenore confesses that she not desires her want anymore. To her, it appears as if everyone else desires to alter a remorse, however her remorse made her into who she is now. She killed her child brother to forestall him from getting used for political achieve by her scheming step-father … However that occasion is what opened her eyes now to a larger goal. Sestia hugs Lenore.

Murdina says she is frightened of what’s forward, but when they’re all making this alternative collectively, she will transfer ahead confidently. All people agrees to maneuver ahead, they usually step by way of the portal.

The ultimate check

The six heroes discover themselves in a mazelike chamber, the place the voices of the gods ring of their ears with the principles of the sport: They have to discover a pennant and return it to a delegated location. They roll initiative.

Sestia casts summon beast, which takes the type of a small tiger-shaped constellation, and sends the tiger to the best. She turns to Murdina and tells her, “You bought this,” giving her Bardic Inspiration, then heads left. Murdina and Lenore comply with Sestia, with Lenore casting motivational speech earlier than they cut up. Ekon heads to the best.

Nikhil sees a glowing diamond, and walks into it. He finds himself transported elsewhere — separated from his companions — and makes use of his Channel Divinity Sacred Weapon, earlier than starting to scream at the top of his lungs.

He casts expeditious retreat and winds his approach randomly by way of the passageways, flying at prime pace. A purple glowing rune catches his eye in a room forward, and he wonders aloud, “What would Sestia need me to do?” earlier than rapidly plunging forward into the rune. He finds himself standing within the colossal arms of Aagshni. “Woman of Rebirth,” Nikhil whispers humbly, and bows.

Aagshni asks Nikhil what he fears probably the most. He says that’s one among many issues he doesn’t know: “I’m a brand new particular person immediately, and I really feel like I used to be a brand new particular person yesterday, too, and … I don’t know sufficient about myself to inform you with honesty, my girl, what I’m afraid of.” He explains that a number of different individuals want a number of different issues proper now, and it’s okay that it’s not about him in the meanwhile. Aagshni tells him that the video games have been a necessity, and asks whether or not Nikhil isn’t born anew due to them. Nikhil asks Aagshni for the favor of granting him the pennant, placing his utmost effort into being formal and respectful in his request. His nostril bleeds with the trouble.

Aagshni asks if Nikhil accepts her trial. He agrees. Nikhil drops by way of Aagshni’s fingers, and the ocean under turns into fireplace. Nikhil leans into the partitions of fireplace as he passes, a smile plastered on his face whereas he weeps, and he thinks to himself: “I’m so glad none of my buddies obtained this problem.” (He — a tiefling — is resistant to fireplace injury.) He lands closely on a flooring within the chamber and sees earlier than him the pennant.

Leila hears Nikhil’s victorious shout within the distance. She touches the crown at her forehead, and radiant wings elevate her off the bottom as she prompts her Ghostly Gaze Eldritch Invocation, permitting her to see by way of strong objects. She sees Nikhil holding the flag, and telepathically tells this to the others. Leila steps into one other glowing purple rune, and seems again earlier than The Eldritch Devourer, its huge cosmic physique wrapping a tentacle round her neck. One thing appears to intercede on her behalf, and he or she is transported again to the chamber.

Sestia can hear Nikhil’s scream and makes an attempt a blind dimension door to him with Murdina in tow. (She is requested for an Intelligence saving throw, and rolls a pure 20.) Sestia offers her final Bardic Inspiration to Nikhil.

Sestia and Murdina discover a scraping sound in an adjoining hallway, and Nikhil is out of the blue overcome with a sense of overwhelming hopelessness. Nikhil offers up the pennant for worry of messing up, and Murdina takes off within the path of the sound to go off no matter may be coming their approach. She sees nothing however a glowing rune on the ground, and steps into it.

Transported as Nikhil and Leila have been, Murdina sees looming over her the enormous type of Sahengaria, sharpening her huge sword on a whetstone. “What would you like?” the god asks. Murdina desires to assist her buddies, no matter it takes — she has to get the flag to the receptacle. “Strike me as soon as, and I’ll put you there,” guarantees Sahengaria. Murdina attracts her sword and fees forward. Her blade whistles previous on the primary strike, however she twirls round for a second blow, putting the deity on the shins. Murdina instantly finds herself standing in entrance of the receptacle.

Lenore runs again towards Ekon to inform him she believes Sestia and Nikhil are collectively, earlier than disappearing into the identical rune Nikhil entered. Ekon says they need to intention to separate as much as higher discover the pennant, and he enters a unique glowing rune, discovering himself peering up on the huge determine of Nassavani. “Excuse me,” he calls, “I’m on the lookout for a pennant!” Nassavani asks what video games Ekon is aware of, and whether or not he’s a playing man. All Ekon is aware of is warfare, and offers a menacing glare. Nassavani is impressed sufficient to select him up and drop him subsequent to Sestia and Nikhil.

Ekon inquires about their subsequent transfer. Nikhil responds, “If Murdina is smart, she’ll be screaming on the prime of her lungs.” Ekon has his doubts.

Not sensible

Leila can see Murdina by way of the partitions, and Nikhil takes off flying in her approximate path. As he passes a mirror on the wall, the mirror opens a gaping mouth and lashes out at Nikhil with its tongue. Nikhil dodges nimbly out of the best way and holds the pennant out for Leila. She grabs the pennant and thunder steps by way of the wall, inserting the hand-shaped flag into the alcove.

The maze disappears, and all six heroes discover themselves standing on a shattered piece of land, beneath a grotesque inexperienced and purple star. Eldritch tendrils lash out on the fractured island, pulling it in the direction of the gaping eye-like construction on the coronary heart of the celestial physique. Sahengaria, Aagshni, and Nassavani seem to congratulate the winners, and inform the six that they are going to have their want granted. Nonetheless, it should be one shared want between the six. Leila speaks for all of them: “We want to be a part of the battle.”

“Ooh, a battle for the cosmos! Are we choosing groups?” Nassavani asks, delighted. The three gods start to decide on champions, with Nassavani taking Sestia as his personal. Sahengaria picks her daughter, Leila, and Aagshni chooses Nikhil, citing that he has grown on her. Nassavani permits destiny itself to position Murdina on his staff, whereas Aagshni chooses Ekon — “that warrior who bends flame to his will, simply as I do” — leaving Lenore to affix Sahengaria and Leila. Lenore is proud to face by Leila’s facet.

“Welcome to the warfare zone, kiddos,” teases the Lord of Destiny.
