This period was chaotic for the group. We started adding in remote Internet players and were experimenting with several ways of running the game with this new format. Several adventures were undertaken without quite as much continuity as was normal in the campaign. As the players became more comfortable with the new format we were able to develop several new characters and new story lines emerged.

When they returned to Roadhaven, they are visited by the Dryad of the Forest who wants the party to fulfill its promise to destroy the invisible tree that is haunting her grove. She says that a Treant guardian is supposed to move in at the fall festival (15-7-1254)

Three giant spiders, three black squirrels, a brown bear, two giant toads, the bushes and trees animate to attack. During the fight Seriana teleports to the keep. When she flies back over the forest hawks follow her. When she stays five harpies fly out of the forest to attack her. Seriana flies away from the keep area, gets attacked by the harpies, and falls victim to their charm.
