A Christmas one-shot module by DGM. Last session of 2023.
After getting a letter, we went to confront the Master. Gringal joined us but went ahead of us and lost to the Master. We entered through doorway in cave that was a portal to demiplane. Found cathedral where Master was, still possessing Destra’s body. Fought and managed to remove Master from Destra, leaving Master as puddle of shadows. Destroyed owl statues that Master used to hold onto his power. Gringal sacrificed himself to ensure that remaining owl statues would be destroyed and that Master would not escape. We left and destroyed the stone slab, destroying the doorway. Returned to Destra’s tree. Found that Destra had lost her memory.
After rescuing Beralt from the Master’s forces, the party travelled with Clair to find gnome Cleric and ask about Blue, the Master’s lover, and her daughter Destra. Fought evil spirits in the Small Folk Forest. Met Fizzle that could transform into a lizard. Celebrated marriage of newlywed halflings Darcy and Gillian. Fought Master’s servants Ilestra and Alchemist at Destra’s palace. Met with Cleric and his companion Stream.
Asked about how to save Destra who had her body taken over by the Master and how to give Blue a new body. Cleric said only Destra could give Blue a new body. Cleric then took us back in time to talk to past Blue to stand up against the Master for her daughter Destra’s sake. Also talked to past Ilestra. Returned to present and found that Ilestra was alive with new memories and relationship to us. She was no longer the servant of the Master. Cleric did not return to confirm whether Destra’s body was still taken over by Master, so we went back to town.
Summary: After Beralt was taken by a mysterious being known as the Master and his forces, the party searched for him and managed to locate him along with Gringal’s children. Saved them. Also reunited Dredulai with her twin daughters Hastro and Histro.
