After finally making their way to the autumn twilight court, the party was able to speak to Queen Haldyasiths and King Thorn. They immediately confiscated all of the cold iron the party was carrying and took Tovar into custody for his invovelment in the destruction of the forest. The Queen was able to reunite Widget with his sister Bridget and Carl.
While the party waited for the two to return from collecting herbs, they mingled and enjoyed the offerings of the court. Milah approached the Queen to ask about returning home from the Fey. The Queen told her that they cannot return because they travelled into the Fey on the New Moon. She did suggest however, that they may be able to win the favour of the court by helping them and earn the right to leave. Milah was also approached by a centaur, Scamp, who suggested they speak to the King for help, however, the King wanted the party to help in a battle against the foresters. Seeing as many of these people are innocents just trying to do their jobs, many of the party members (especially Lamont) opposed this and they decided to go with the Queen’s suggestion instead.
Iryani was not happy with this decision. She wanted out of the fey as fast as possible by any means possible. Longpath suggested she talk to the witch queen. The rest of the party was unwilling to deal with the witch queen so Iryani went out on her own without telling the rest of the party. The witch queen gave her a tool which would allow the party to create a portal through the King’s tree by spiting it open. and she brought this plan to the party, possibly leaving out some details. The party decided to save Tovar and make a run for it through the tree.
After asking some questions they were able to track down Tovar’s location. While trying to free Tovar the party was attacked by a flaming, undead Ent! Luckily they were able to survive the attack and free Tovar from his cell in the ground.
The party then made their way to the tree but when they arrived, the king was there and attacked them with an Ankou. Tovar frantically cranked the tool to split the tree while the party did their best to stay alive. Each crank seemed to harm the King and with a bit of haste, Tovar was able to open the portal and everyone was sucked through, including the Ankou. Everyone was alive, though badly injured, and found themselves back in the city of Discordia.
