Linking memory segment 0D0506…
The fight with Aurora continues, during which we battle a horde of bizarre minions along with the misguided druid. Skye finally manages to knock Aurora unconscious and not kill it =FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING=, and the rest of us mop up its companions. Near the end of the fight, Drizzle electrocutes one of the combatants with a bolt of lightning, and the mushroom that it was standing on self destructs and tears open yet another rift, this time to Syrenia.
Drizzle uncharacteristically avoids entering the rift, and we retreat from the mountain just in time to watch it collapse into the planar tear. =NOT THE WORST DAMAGE THAT WE HAVE DONE, BUT CLOSE= With Aurora slung over my shoulder, we travel to a safe distance, make camp, and prepare to return to our own world once more.
The next day, we use the Eberron page to try to return to Sharn, but a spectacular ritual failure by Drizzle and Zakar =FAILURE BOTH IN A RITUALISTIC SENSE AND IN THE USE OF THE RITUAL ITSELF= leads to us missing our target and appearing far to the north of Sharn, as well as dozens of feet up in the air over a swiftly flowing river. After soaking ourselves thoroughly, we drag each out from the waters =LACK OF NEED TO BREATHE FORTUNATE ONCE MORE= and turn south to return to the city that never keeps us inside of it for long,
=AN AUSPICIOUS RETURN TO THE PRIME PLANE, AS ALWAYS=
