The party appeared in the grove of Belak the Outcast after being teleported away from the disintegrating fire node. Moving forward, they were pushed back by constant twig blight assaults and rested in a sheltered corridor. After they were fully refreshed they charged into Belak’s grove, confronting the foul druid under the massive Gulthias tree. He explained some of his plan to take over the world using the twig blights, grown from the tree’s seeds. Having heard this the party promptly decided to kill him. A wise decision, given that they’re alternative was being turned into vegetables. But they failed. A few resisted the change and began to fight for their lives and the world as they know it.
