The Dream Shard

No tarrasque

Alarra dimension doors us past the monster into the library.

Bring mimic with us, use dream shard to activate portal.

Verdant field and crystal clear pond surrounded by dancing elven women. Upon mentioning dreamlord and starting the ritual, they attack. We kill/chase them off and set up for the ritual.

A creature forms out of the water and threatens. Summons nightmare creatures to attack.

Dispatch them, fight nightmare lord. Tough battle but SAL keeps going with the ritual.

Shardryn destroys dragon form. Bard soul tackles nightmare lord’s reduced form.

SAL finishes ritual, crystal shoots into his body and shatters.

Save the world, win. Woo.


Research continues

Have to go into the Deeper Dreaming with our dream selves to destroy the shard. Whoever destroys the shard will lose their dreams.

Get bodies guarded and travel the dream realm with dreamselves. Head to house on Hook St.
