Drawn into the Shadowfell, the party fights through Orcus’ forces to gain audience with the Raven Queen. They agree to her request to enter the desolate plane of Death’s Reach and foil Orcus’ plans.
In possession of a psychic map, the bloodcrystal raven skull and a ritual to summon the Raven Queen’s aspect, the party heads for Nerull’s Gate. Along the way they bargain with an angel of secrets who reveals the location of a hidden cache of weapons remaining from the Dawn War that will help them defeat Orcus in the coming battle.
In the distance, a dark red star hovers below a lightning cloud, a yawning canyon below it.
