"This is literal railroading!" ~ Mike Bachmann
Truly is is horrible to think what our world would be without magick. A magickless world is almost too much to even think about. This is the peril the gang find themselves in after saving bucky from the Dog Park of Evening Shire. Something strange indeed is going on and they may not be able to solve the mystery on their own. Luckily an old friends stops by to lend a hand.
Cast and Player Characters
After leaving Evening Shire and on the road Bucky is feeling under the weather and soon after so does Harper. His magic can no longer be used. Being worried, Thom and Aludra begin to make a tasty stew when all of a sudden Bucky passes out. Doing a quick heal check, Thom sees that there is nothing physically wrong with the boy. Shortly after, Harper faints. A shimmer appears over the fire with a familiar voice accompanying it. To the groups surprise, Tum "Darkblade" Thumble has, in spirit, come to visit them asking for help. A being from the Feywild plane named Julemanden is sucking all magic out of the world on the day of the Winter Solstice. Tum grabs both Aludra and Thom's spirits and takes them to another dimension with big trees and snow continuously falling; some would say, a winter wonderland. They all meet with Tum's contact Hermey the Elf (who is a dentist), and tells them they will need to go back in time to save Julemanden's sister Fan, who died on this exact day, and, by doing that, should prevent this from ever happening.

A song, by Steph Kingston
You know Thom
and Lord Titus Harper?
But do you recall?
The most sly flourish of all?
Tum the Darkblade, had a very dead body
But on the Winter solstice
he came back for all to see
He told his friends, the party
They had to stop Julemanden
Before he stole all the magic
And totally killed Bucky
They traveled to the Feywild
Met Tum's friend Hermey
Hermey sent them back in time
To save Julemanden's sister one night
They saved her from pianos,
snakes, creeks, and the flu too
Fan lived and young Julemanden...
Didn't turn into a dick
Didn't turn intooooo a diiiiiiick! Yay!
