Follow Lulu's cries across Avernus as you race to rescue her!
Area Goal Quests & Cinematics
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Stay clear of these trees. Even with Haruman fallen, there's no telling what kind of dark magic they might release.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
I've still got eyes on Lulu. But she's not moving...
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
The hellwasps' venom anaesthetizes their prey after they collect it. She'll be fine, as long as we can catch her in time.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
All our catchin' ability is tied up in our gettin' off o' this hill and back ta tha war machine right quick. So don't let nothin' slow ye down!
1 Defeat 25 Monsters Swarms of stirges and lesser imps seem intent on keeping you from leaving Haruman's Hill. Time to move!
2 Defeat 25 Monsters As fast as you drive these creatures back, fresh attackers press in!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Look! The trees on the lower slopes haven't released their victims.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
The magic must be stronger down here. The ritual has weakened it but not undone it. But we can help it along. Come on!
3 Collect 25 Iron Stakes The last of the Hellriders tortured by Haruman are ready to be freed. Set their souls to rest!
4 Defeat 25 Monsters The last of the stirges have scattered -- but the hellwasps that claimed Lulu are back in search of more prey!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Elf, are ye still seein' Lulu?
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Well enough that we'll be able to follow her. But the hellwasps aren't the only threats on the air!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Haruman's death will have been felt by other fiends. We need to get clear of this hill!
5 Defeat the Nightmare Haruman's fallen mount wasn't the only nightmare protecting the hill. Watch out!
6 Defeat 25 Monsters Keeping the hellwasps flying with Lulu in sight would be easier if these stirges stayed out of your way!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Finally makin' some headway against these blasted bloodsucker birds. Keep hittin' 'em!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
The hellwasps and Lulu look like they're descending. They must be getting close to wherever they're going.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Keep watchin'. As long as we got a bearin' ta follow, we'll catch 'em soon 'nuff.
7 Defeat 25 Monsters The stirges are close to breaking -- just as another force of imps crashes into you!
8 Collect 25 Imp Horns Clipping these imps' horns might show them you mean business!
9 Defeat 25 Monsters The bottom of the hill is in sight -- but swarms of flies close in around you!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Almost to the bottom. I can see the war machine.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
And I can see a blasted barbed devil pokin' around it. Oi! Fiend! Keep yer spikey hands off o' machines that don't belong ta ye. That ain't no ride share!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Good news! He heard you. And is charging straight for us!
10 Defeat the Barbed Devil A barbed devil means to keep you from reclaiming the war machine and continuing your journey. Hit this fiend hard!
11 Defeat 25 Monsters With the hellwasps still in sight, you tear across Avernus -- straight into a swarm of stirges!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Is it my imagination, or is this war machine starting to handle somewhat better than it was before?
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Pretty sure it's more about just bein' able ta point it in a straight line toward where ye saw them hellwasps touch down. Long as we don't gotta turn, we might be all right.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Well, good news then. Spined devils coming in from both sides!
12 Defeat 25 Monsters The stirges are almost under control. But this pack of devil scouts seeks to end your journey!
13 Defeat 25 Monsters These devils press in relentlessly. Let's clip their wings.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
Excellent driving, Bruenor. I think we're catching up to the hellwasp pack. Jarlaxle, can you see anything?
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
It'd be easier if this machine wasn't bouncing so badly. But... yes! There's Lulu!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
They haven't landed yet!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Looks like we're right on schedule, then. Time ta catch up fer good!
14 Defeat 25 Monsters You're closing the distance to the hellwasp pack carrying Lulu -- but the spined devils renew their assault!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Hellwasp nests, dead ahead! Are we going to catch them in time?
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
We will if I got anythin' ta say about it. Come on, ye infernal machine! Give it all ye got... oi! What's goin' on? We're slowin' down!
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Is feral-looking spike orc bashing at engines! Knocking things loose!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
That's a tanarukk! An orc corrupted by abyssal power. The devils must have been holding it in reserve as a weapon.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Well, it's gonna leave us standin' here if we don't take care o' it. Hit it hard!
15 Defeat the Tanarukk This tanarukk is tearing through the war machine -- but seems keen on taking the fight to you on behalf of the devils that have unleashed it!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
The hellwasps are breaking up into smaller swarms. I can't see... no, there she is! Lulu! Hard left, Bruenor!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Feh! Left's one o' tha two directions this machine don't seem ta understand. But hang on!
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Watch course, dwarf! Low-flying wasps are straight there!
Icon Portrait Boo.png
Boo:
Squeak!!!
16 Defeat 25 Monsters The hellwasps carrying Lulu split off for their nests -- even as a defensive force swarms forth to deal with you!
17 Defeat 25 Monsters A fast turn gets you away from the hellwasps momentarily -- but the stirges stay close!
18 Defeat 25 Monsters The hellwasps circle around and come in for another assault!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
These wasps are like a wall! Jarlaxle, what do you see?
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
We're too far behind. There! The bigger nest, straight ahead. They're taking Lulu inside!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Then I'm gonna get us in close. We're only two steps behind. And there ain't no way we're losin' that little hollyphant now!
19 Defeat 25 Monsters You've set a course for the nest where Lulu was taken -- but the closer you get, the greater the fury of the hellwasp assault!
20 Defeat the Bone Devil A bone devil is intent on stopping your war machine's progress. Push through!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Right! There's hellwasp central, straight up. Elf, ye're sure that's where Lulu went?
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Positive. We'll need to get up those chains. And the wasps thankfully don't seem too keen on defending them.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
No doubt most creatures aren't foolish enough to try to enter a nest. But I'm guessing they'll turn out in droves once they realize we're inside.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Then get weapons ready and keep yer healin' at hand. We need ta get this done, and right quick!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
This place... I can feel the celestial energy being consumed here.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
The hellwasps are going to respond in huge numbers when they sense we've entered these drone cells. The larder will be closer to the center of the nest. This is going to be a tough fight.
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Minsc and Boo are ready. Defiant we stand! Wasps will be swatted this day!
Icon Portrait Boo.png
Boo:
Squeak!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Well, I'm feeling better already. Also, does anyone else hear a rapidly rising, bloodcurdling buzzing sound?!
21 Defeat 25 Monsters Swarms of hellwasps are drawn to you as you enter the nest. Take them out, or Lulu is lost!
22 Defeat 25 Monsters The hellwasps are a potent enough threat on their own -- but these vicious grubs have an even greater taste for flesh!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
We're gettin' hit too hard! Can't make no headway!
Icon Delina.png
Delina:
There's so many of them, even area spells aren't having an effect!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I think we might be able to fend them off using alchemy rather than magic. If I can create a repellent, it might confuse them -- and will work doubly effectively in these close quarters.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Then just tell us what ye need Celeste. But do it quick!
23 Collect 25 Vials of Hellwasp Venom With the right formulation, the potent venom of these insectoid fiends can be used against them. Collect it, and quickly!
24 Defeat 25 Monsters The farther you push into the nest, the stronger the defenses arrayed against you. Hit these fiends hard!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
There's some kind of different chamber beyond this one. I hope that's the larder ahead.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Oi! Listen. Do ye hear a howlin'?
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
That is hell hound! What is stray fiend doing here?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
It must have been captured as food. Then when the wasps brought it back here, they realized their mistake.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
I think their mistake is about to become our mistake. Look out!
25 Defeat the Hell Hound A hell hound captured by the wasps has broken loose -- and is attacking everything it can see!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
By all the gods, this larder is a foul place. Lulu!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
There! I can see her! But she's still sleepin' with whatever venom tha wasps filled her with. Hold on, little hollyphant! We're comin' fer ye!
26 Defeat 25 Monsters You've reached the foul larder of this nest. Now to rescue Lulu before it's too late!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
These wasps and grubs is tryin' ta keep us reachin' Lulu. We gotta push!
Descent Portrait Mahadi.png
Mahadi:
If you were able to push a little in this direction after your friend is safe, I can't tell you how much I'd appreciate it.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
What in... there's a talkin' tiger stuck inta that wall opposite Lulu!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
That's no tiger, Bruenor. It's a rakshasa!
Descent Portrait Mahadi.png
Mahadi:
You are most perceptive, noble cleric. I would give you the full honors that one of your obvious rank and bearing clearly deserves... but I fear I find myself somewhat indisposed... and dying...
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
There's so much evil in this place I can't get a read on this fiend. On your honor, rakshasa -- if we aid you, you'll owe the Champions a favor that I promise we'll collect.
Descent Portrait Mahadi.png
Mahadi:
On my honor, fair knight... on my... honor...
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
They're fadin' fast. If we're doin' this, we gotta do it now!
27 Defeat 25 Monsters Lulu isn't the only living captive here. You need to reach this rakshasa, and quickly!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
We're making no headway. Curse these fiends!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I can help, I think. The alchemical concoction we've created from the wasps' venom will drive them back if it's released here. But it needs to be released carefully. Everyone to me!
28 Collect 25 Portions of Bee Repellent When exposed to the foul excretions covering the larder, the augmented hellwasp venom will drive these fiends back. Get to work!
29 Defeat 25 Monsters As you near the center of the larder, the hellwasps and grubs furiously try to stop your advance!
30 Defeat the Hellwasp Queen A monstrous hellwasp queen drives its brood servants into a blood rage! Take it down!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
That repellent did tha trick. Them wasps we drove back is stayin' back. Not sure fer how long, though.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
Then we need to work quickly. Carefully now, bring Lulu down.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Don't move while I cut you free, rakshasa. And be very aware of what else this blade can do.
Descent Portrait Mahadi.png
Mahadi:
I assure you fair knight, whatever our... moral incompatibilities, Mahadi is at your service, now and forevermore.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Mahadi? That was the name the warlord Feonor mentioned in the wastes. If you find yourself missing an infernal war machine, I assure you we had nothing to do with it.
Descent Portrait Mahadi.png
Mahadi:
But of course, my friend. Possessions are merely ephemeral in the best of places. And Avernus is... well, far from the best of places.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Don't mean ta interrupt everybody gettin' acquainted, but them wasps is buzzin' again. Time ta go!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
Lulu's still sleeping. I'll need some time with her to clear this venom from her system.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
We need to get onto the war machine first. If the wasps swarm again, we won't get away.
Descent Portrait Mahadi.png
Mahadi:
Oh, my. That's... quite the vehicle you have there.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
I admit it doesn't look like much from here. But when you get up close, you'll see that it's actually got quite a bit less than that.
Descent Portrait Mahadi.png
Mahadi:
Well, perhaps at some point, I might be able to help you better equip yourselves for your mission. Which is...?
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
None of your concern right now, rakshasa. Unless you're coming with us?
Descent Portrait Mahadi.png
Mahadi:
In fact, no, but thank you. My emporium will be passing by quite near here. And if the wasps are chasing your war machine, I shouldn't have any trouble reaching it. But here, take this token. If you have need, break it, and the imp it summons will bring your message to me.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Good luck ta ya, then, friend or fiend or whatever ye're like ta be. We gotta move!
31 Defeat 25 Monsters Your war machine sets off across the blasted hellscape of Avernus once more -- but swarms of stirges and hellwasps are close behind!
Descent Portrait Lulu.png
Lulu:
Oh... what...? So many dark dreams...
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
The dreams are over for now, Lulu. You're safe.
Descent Portrait Lulu.png
Lulu:
But... Haruman's Hill... we were there... yes! I understand now!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Ye'll need ta fill us in, little hollyphant. There was no sign o' Zariel's sword there, or o' that Alabaster palace Duke Ravengard spoke about.
Descent Portrait Lulu.png
Lulu:
I was wrong, friends. The hill wasn't the site where the sword was abandoned. It was where I needed to go to see the path I followed out of the wilderness. I know the route now. The Demon Zapper... the Brambles... I know where we need to go!
Descent Portrait Lucille.png
Lucille:
As I guessed, insolent celestial. And having guessed at your route to keep in front of you, your journey ends here, mortals!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
What tha... it's that pit fiend we fought 'neath Elturel! Tha same one that turned craven and ran soon as tha fight turned against it. So are ye gonna wait again until ye know ye're losin' tha fight? Then ye'll pick' a fine time ta leave us...
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Don't. I'm warning you.
32 Defeat 25 Monsters A force of bearded devils surges before the pit fiend Lucille to breach the war machine's defenses. Drive these fiends back!
33 Defeat 25 Monsters The bearded devils threaten to overwhelm you. Send them overboard!
34 Defeat 25 Monsters You have the bearded devils on the defensive -- but a swarm of imps enters the fray on the pit fiend's orders to tip the balance of the fight once more!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
She plans to ram us! Hold on!
Descent Portrait Lucille.png
Lucille:
Rebellious mortal chaff! I will seed the ground of Avernus with your bones and water that crop with the last drops of your blood!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Ye talk a good game, fiend. But if ye're countin' tha same as I am, ye're understandin' that that wall o' minions ye love ta protect yerself with is gettin' thin. I'll tell ya, since we got ta Avernus, we Champions has had some bad times. We lived through...
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Stop! No talking! More fighting!
35 Defeat the Lucille The pit fiend Lucille regroups its devilish forces for a final assault. Stand fast!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Just like I thought. That pit fiend loves ta talk, but as soon as it ain't just minions runnin' tha risk o' dyin', it's time ta beat a retreat.
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
So defiant that fiend is. You heard, dwarf, when your axe finally hit her? She said, 'I'm no quitter...'
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
All right, seriously! No!
Icon Portrait Boo.png
Boo:
Squeak?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
My word. Look at that thing.
Descent Portrait Lulu.png
Lulu:
The Demon Zapper! We need to get past. But it won't be easy.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Looks like a nasty piece o' work. Only what's that bright light comin' off o' it?
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
I'm sensing something... the power of law... a force for good is there, radiating that brilliance.
Descent Portrait Lulu.png
Lulu:
That's how the Demon Zapper works. Demons are drawn to it, then driven mad with the urge to destroy the bright power there. And when they're close enough, they're consumed.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Wait... at the center of the light. Is that...?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
It's a unicorn! Its life force is being drawn into the device. That must be the bait used to pull the demons in.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Not for much longer. Let's move!
36 Defeat 25 Monsters The bearded devils guarding the Demon Zapper are a potent line of defense -- and these swarming stirges won't make the fight any easier!
37 Defeat 25 Monsters This infernal line is close to breaking. Hit them hard!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Keep at 'em while they're on tha run! Don't let these fiends reform ranks!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Jarlaxle, is anything coming up behind us? Wherever that pit fiend has fallen back to, it won't stay away for long.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
No sign of anything yet. But the faster we can take this Demon Zapper out and get back on the road, the better off we'll be.
38 Collect 25 Vrock Feathers Vrocks on their way to destroy themselves in the Demon Zapper swarm chaotically around you. Clip these fiends' wings and send them off!
39 Defeat 25 Monsters As the last of the vrocks fall, the bearded devils regroup for another assault!
Descent Portrait MoonColorTortured.png
Mooncolor:
So tired... so much suffering...
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
Hold on, fair one. We're coming for you. Your imprisonment will end!
Descent Portrait MoonColorTortured.png
Mooncolor:
Is it true? After so long? I fear to believe it...
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
'Tis as true as anythin' can be in this infernal realm, friend. But tha Champions has come fer ye -- and we're takin' down this Demon Zapper right here and now!
40 Defeat the Demon Zapper The Demon Zapper packs a potent punch -- and these bearded devils will protect it to the bitter end!
Descent Portrait MoonColorRecovered.png
Mooncolor:
My strength... my light returned... oh, thank you, friends. I am Mooncolor, and long have I dreamed of release from this dark fate.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
Your sadness is done for now, Mooncolor. The Demon Zapper is destroyed. But will you be able to make your way home?
Descent Portrait MoonColorRecovered.png
Mooncolor:
When I can, I shall. But I will roam a while first. There is evil in this realm that must be fought. And I have been held fast for too long.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Well, good huntin' ta ye, friend. And maybe we'll see ye again before finally settin' things right.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
More devils comin' in. We gotta get past 'em if we're gonna get clear.
Descent Portrait Ralzala.png
Ralzala:
They'll only follow you. You won't escape their vengeance for destroying this site... except with my help.
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Agh! Stone person comes up from the ground! Watch out!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
That's a dao, Minsc. And if they'd wanted to hurt us, I suspect they would have already.
Descent Portrait Ralzala.png
Ralzala:
You are perceptive for an outworlder. Our meeting is fortuitous, perhaps. I am Ralzala, bound by servitude to Zariel to watch over this place -- and I can keep your escape hidden from the devils who will come seeking vengeance. Including the pit fiend Lucille, who you are wise to fear.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
I'm sensing an 'in exchange for...' coming right up.
Descent Portrait Ralzala.png
Ralzala:
Indeed. My price is the contract that binds me. I sought to make use of Zariel's power long ago. But now... I have had enough of serving evil.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Gonna need ya ta hold that thought, dao. And if ye're talkin' truth about wantin' ta help us, a bit o' distraction would go a long way!
41 Defeat 25 Monsters The watcher of the Demon Zapper seems an unlikely ally -- but against these spined devils, you'll take all the help you can get!
42 Defeat 25 Monsters A pack of imps is all that keeps you from sealing the bargain with Ralzala and getting on the road again. Push through!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
Your assistance was most welcome, Ralzala. But our time is short. What will it take for you to help conceal our path from the devils?
Descent Portrait Ralzala.png
Ralzala:
Break my contract with Zariel. A simple thing, for one who knows how.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Let's assume fer a minute that one o' them who knows ain't one o' us. We got our own Zariel contract we're worryin' about right now, and still no clear sense o' what we're ta do with it.
Descent Portrait Ralzala.png
Ralzala:
Then for your sake and mine, seek the Brambles. Red Ruth is there. A night hag. She will help. But remember your promise.
Descent Portrait Lulu.png
Lulu:
The Brambles... yes! A twisted wood, slaked with blood. I came through there, before.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
Our word is our bond, Ralzala. If this Red Ruth can provide useful information, you'll be doing us two favors. And we'll return those favors. We'll free you if we can.
43 Defeat 25 Monsters Bearded devils swarm the war machine as you get underway. Speed up and get out of here!
44 Defeat 25 Monsters With the Demon Zapper's draw on them ended, this pack of vrocks and dretches is out of control!
45 Defeat the Chain Devil A chain devil leads a mob of lesser imps against the last of the vrocks -- and you and the war machine are caught in the middle!
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
Slow this machine up! Sudden change of landscape, dead ahead.
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Warped trees... vines lookin' like bones... and is that blood soakin' inta tha topsoil?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I fear that if we take the war machine into that maze, we'll never get it out again. It'll be best if we go in on foot.
Icon Jarlaxle.png
Jarlaxle:
This place is definitely not winning any top-garden honors. Unless there's a competition with an abattoir category...
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
These woods is dangerous unnatural, top ta bottom. Gives me tha willies, it does.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
We're going to need to navigate carefully. Then we have to convince this Red Ruth that we need a favor.
Icon Minsc.png
Minsc:
Minsc will find safe routes. Everyone, follow!
46 Defeat 25 Monsters Navigating the Bone Brambles in search of a night hag is challenge enough -- but the ghoul packs that roam this twisted wood are out for blood!
47 Defeat 25 Monsters Another force of ghouls pushes out from the trees! Don't let them hem you in!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
Celeste, careful! Don't be touchin' them bodies in tha trees. Ye don't know where they been.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I think I do, though, Bruenor. These are dryads, corrupted and poisoned by some manner of foul magic. Their spirits most likely still roam this place, tortured by what they've become.
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
So much evil in Avernus. Is there anything we can do for them?
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
Perhaps. I have an idea...
48 Collect 25 Bone Bramble Samples These unnatural woods still hold the potent magic of the dryads who fell here. Sample that magic, and quickly!
49 Defeat 25 Monsters More will-o'-wisps circle close, seeking to feed on your fear!
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
The will-o'-wisps are closing in. But they're not alone!
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
The spirits of the dryads have come. I can use the magic of their fallen grove to help defeat them. But we need to act quickly!
50 Defeat the Dryad Spirits The cursed spirits of the dryads whose magic spawned these woods deserve to have their suffering ended. Send them to their rest!
Icon Bruenor.png
Bruenor:
That weren't tha most pleasant fight. But them dryads is at peace now, wherever they've gone.
Icon Celeste.png
Celeste:
I like to think their spirits have returned to the mortal realm, to become one with nature again. But we might have to ask the one who brought them here in the first place. Red Ruth? You've been watching, haven't you?
Icon Portrait PeggyDeadbells.png
Red Ruth:
Oh, clever mortals! Find your way to Red Ruth's lair. Find your way through Red Ruth's mazes! Find yourself becoming Red Ruth's new pets, yes?
Icon Nayeli.png
Nayeli:
I believe you might have miscalculated the balance of power if this comes to a fight, hag. But thankfully for you, that's not why we're here.
Icon Portrait PeggyDeadbells.png
Red Ruth:
Oh! A social call? Favors to be asked? What a thrill for Red Ruth. So come. Come! Follow me...
