Party continues search for Adgar in the Narnas desert.
Party encounters Soli, the friendly firesprite. She was summoned by Adgar to lead the company to his location in a sandworm den.
Aya begins acting very erratically, and threatens Aras’ life. Aras is able to calm her down and restrain Alahar before he attempts to kill her.
In the night, Aya becomes extremely frantic, and finds Aras in order to tell him about her fears.
In front of Aras, she is consumed by the dark magic her mother cast upon her and is encased within a skeletal tree.
The party is confronted with Aya’s mother manifesting within the tree, and also a skeletal hydra which overwhelms them.
In face of odds, party begins to withdraw and retreat, having decided Aya was lost.
Enraged, Aras stays behind in order to free Aya from her prison in the skeletal tree.
Party decides to assist, and hold off the hydra.
In the middle of destroying Aya’s prison, Aya’s mother tricks Aras into stabbing Aya, nearly killing her.
Aya begs for forgiveness for their previous disagreements, and enraged upon the thought of losing her Aras is able to free her from her mother’s possession.
Party defeats the hydra.
Party finds Aras holding Aya while still in a rage, unsure as to whether he has lost his mind.
In morning, Aya wakes up in Aras’s arms, and finds he eventually broke his rage to watch over her during the night. After helping her to her tent, the two come to terms with their past troubles.
With Aya returned and freed from possession, party continues search for Adgar.
