|Damia climbs the steps leading to the power of the stone demon, where she will face her second trial, much to the dismay of all the realm. A pair of lone travelers come upon each other and an invitation is given, the answer to be determined. Stryker finds his heart's desire returned to him in spades, though perhaps not exactly as he would hope. If you are paying attention, you will see that some in the group will be converging soon... this is getting REALLY interesting. Welcome back to the Lands of Lore!
