My manta ray cloak was a great item to have after we had killed the hideous eye beast. I spent three days in flight carrying everyone upon my back. The trip truly exhausted me, but we had to find a way to get Advar out of the stone form. Although he looked like a handsome statue, he wasn’t much use to us and dead weight. I was hoping that the small town we were headed to would have a mage or cleric that could reverse the affects. If not, well then the town would have a new statue to adorn it’s landscape.
Our search proved fruitful. We found a grizzled shaman that offered to fix him for a price. We had another rabbit hole to dart down it seemed. This shaman wanted us to steal another mages magic book. I agreed to the price and Advar once again was returned to us. I think that Armek was not happy with that decision and kept calling him a thief. Although he had every right to get upset, since Advar had taken his sword without his consent. It was an evil sword though, so I couldn’t judge him for that decision. I had once taken it from him too.
Upon returning him to flesh, we started out to complete the new task at hand. Someplace during our travel alarm bells went off in my head. We were getting distracted from our original task and had a magic crown to return to the hags. It would not bode well if we lost it to another mage. A decision was made that we would return the crown first and then come back to finish the arrangement. Advar was a blessing to have back. A wiggle of his fingers a shake of his ass and a few muttered words a portal opened and we were back at The Great Crag. It was time to go see the hags.
The hags had been waiting on us and to our surprise there was a handsome man standing with them. It was very hard to take my eyes off of him. Even the butterflies in my stomach fluttered wildly when he spoke. This is who was to receive the crown.
We gave him the crown and as I found out later, he was a dragon. This crown was to go to his kind for destruction. It controlled them from what I understand. We decided we would rest our laurels a bit and settled in for the night at the Inn. The dragon came to speak with us and he offered repayment for our deed from the Dragons. My night was getting better and better by the moment. I have to admit, I couldn’t resist attempting to charm him to my own ways for the evening. Being successful, I spent the night getting a learning from a dragon in ways I never thought I could. What a night! Not much sleep occurred but I had a smile on my face the next day.
