178. Frost and Fire

Zolf sails through the borealis while the others sleep; they wake up in their right bodies but a falling ship. The Vengeance crash-lands, killing several of its crew members. The rest of the crew encounters Sohra, an Elder of the Ursans, who offers to resurrect the dead and brings them to her city on a giant bear, where Azu, Cel, Skraak, and Zolf perform a ritual to bring back their dead. Carter, Sassraa, and Wilde return; that evening, they hold a cremation for Meerk.

NOTE: The party has, according to Bryn in 180, apparently spent 'over 3 weeks' on the airship, but only 12 days are explicitly accounted for 'on air'. It must be assumed that some ship days passed 'off-air', so this is most likely day ~122 or thereabouts- adding up to a couple of weeks to each day number after this point works fine.

194. Full Circle

The party heads into the garden, encounters some mostly benevolent spirits, then enters into combat. At the centre of the spreading blight, they come across scores of petrified dwarves running from three giant interplanar flowers. Retreating from a difficult battle with the trees of the blighted garden itself, the party enters one of the giant flowerbud-portals, and find themselves in ethereal encounters with vindictive shades of dead loved ones. Waking from these encounters, it turns out the party is in the grip of a betentacled being in an extraplanar void. The party is flung through a series of elemental planes, before landing in disparate locations in a drastically-altered Other London. It is unclear how much time has or has not passed while the party was outside time, but from their point of view their day continues. In Other London, various members of the party are hunted in the dark by clicking, blue-glowing veined clawed creatures. The PC's reunite and meet Gragg, before heading to Barrett's old compound and getting a debrief from Wilde followed by Barret. The party then decides to follow Barret's plan.

Note: Hamid, Azu, and Zolf arrive in Other London apparently instantaneously, but a week has passed on the material plane. Cel arrives three days before them. Their moss-induced memory loss means they do not remember this time passing, however, so functionally their day continues with the rest of the party.

The party head to the surface to a secondary location, hiding from the infected citizens of Upper London as they do so.
