The party had defeated Aetherion, for now at least. In talking with Warren tells you that they were investigating the reason behind Aetherion’s plot when they uncovered a different plot to attack the city of Elmhurst. In an attempt to defend the city, King Joral pulled all of his men back to defend the capital leaving the other issues exposed to further infestation. The King gave you a place to stay for the night; however that night you ran into a cat who had transported you to a town where buildings were floating in the air. The party then met John Doe, who was just as surprised to see you as you to him. After numerous questions and attempts to barter. John reveals a legend involving the Dream Lord Aetherion and the few heroes who would defeat him and separate the dream realm from the material plane forever. These individuals were so called The Protector, The Bringer of Light, The Bringer of Darkness, The Harmonizer, The Outlander, The Pathfinder, and The Purifier.
The party then awoke, recovery efforts began and several funerals had taken place over the course of the next few weeks. The king then proceeds to ask your assistance in taking down some pirates that have been stealing equipment sent from Juuntal, a city across the sea that is known for its magical enchantments.
