    The Lost Play
    Discovery, Exploration

    Arthur, Durgof and Sage sought Old Zardon, a gnomish cleric of Stellis, as he was their best lead on the Crystal Rose. Tracing him to the Whisperwoods they arrived at the long-abandoned manor of a playwright named Christa Ehrler. She had perished decades ago, leaving her final play unfinished and her spirit possessing the most recent draft.   The party found Old Zardon unconscious and clutching a book, the missing play that he had sought. There was a flash of light and the party had been transported into the unfinished story as it's characters. They played along and ended the story dramatically, with both protagonists and the antagonist perishing. The ghost of Christa freed them from the book and moved on to the afterlife.
