Maze of our mind

So after running around the woods for a while, the party made it through the correct, purple, gate. The gate, however, did not lead them to the Feywild. It led them to the keeper of the true gate, a sphinx. The sphinx created a magical dessert around the party and asked them several riddles. The party displayed amazing intelligence and successfully answered all of the sphinx’s questions. The guardian allowed them to pass into the feywild. They ventured onto the university where they learned of a student who had gone missing when studying an evil book. After considerable deliberation the dean of religious studies allowed the party to study the book. After a few pages were turned, the book sprung a magical trap, throwing the party into a pocket dimension. They found the missing student and he had gone completely mad. He tried to kill himself but he only reappeared! It seems that death does not kill you here, it just drives you slowly mad. The party found themselves on a floating block with 4 other blocks of various sized chained to it with giant chains. They made their way along one of the chains to a small block with 4 other larger blocks floating around it. Entering into the block they found themselves jumping through portals into different mazes. They have been fighting minotaurs and getting very tired. They hope the end of this hellish portal maze is in sight.

No tigers in these woods

A lot has happened since we last took a look at our heroes journey. Here is our story so far…

The heroes managed to find a liberary in the secret monestary. Unfortunately one of the most important books has been magically encrypted. Not even the best cleric in fellcrest can unlock its secrets. The old vicar did know where the heroes may be able to divine the knowledge contained in this dark tome. He advices the heroes to travel to the an Eladrin city in the Feywild. The city has a huge university and if there is a way to get the answers from the book, it can be found there. He heroes must find a fey-gate to get into the elf realm and the one know locally is found in an ancient forested valley to the northeast.

The party made their way to the woods and after dispatching some hags, discovered a cave with what appears to be a portal in it. They determined they had to find magical fires to light fire pots attached to the wall. After collecting a red and a yellow flame the part expected to find themselves in the feywild by only ended up in another part of the valley. After almost being forced to dance to death by some crazed Korrad, the party continues their quest.
