  • When they found the wolves, they attacked.  Unfortunately, they were not normal wolves, and there were dozens of them.  As the fight was turning bad, Vega attempted to use a magical ring the group had found some time ago but had never been able to identify, only knowing that it allowed for some sort of magical transport.

  • The first attempt took Vega into the ocean within sight of Port Springs.  The second brought him over the city, and dumped a waterfall of ocean water into the city.  The third brought him back to his companions.  On the fourth attempt, the ring opened a gate and a mighty Slaadi stepped through.
