The Swabashian Arch - Gateway of adventure - is unpacking itself into real time space! Rooms and corridors manifesting between the shops. Monsters suddenly finding new places to move to/attack/explore.
The characters set out to explore the reason why.
There was fighting
The characters found a room filled with broken statues. The statues are the beginning and exit points of the arch - so they tried to leave the area in the usual way - by wishing themselves home - and found that they were whisked - to their original home (childhood - where the memories lie)
Xelpho found Twyl, Death. Being a nice guy - he decided to collect the spread out party and return them to Turangol. And then, they could get some healing and tackle the real trouble....
