We bid a fond farewell to Valestar Eckhart, the last remaining member of the original party and its first scribe nearly four years ago.

Three of our number have left us, and one mysterious stranger from this ancient prison has joined. None of us who remained had any healing power, so we were forced to rely on potions and scrolls. After maneuvering around some obstacles in our path, we returned to the great glass prism. It had not changed since we had left it, but we checked the blue tunnel anyway.
