A bit more searching of the Devil’s Nursery and the party reckoned they had narrowed down the area that the tooth fairies were stalking. The day was spent familiarising themselves with the winding streets before actively searching that night.
With Pellius leading the way the group made their way through the narrow gaps between the tenements, the air was still and silent. A slight blur at the edge of Pelius’s vision was the trigger for the next frantic few minutes. As he stood there slack jawed a tiny flying creature appeared, oversized pliers in hand. Before he could close his mouth one of his teeth was yanked from his open jaws. Then another appeared near his hand, snipping a piece of his little finger off. Pellius howled in pain and rage, swiping at one of the creatures who fell to the floor motionless. The other fairy flew off over the rooftops, but at least he party now had a direction to head in.
Through the twisting alleys they went before arriving at a secluded corner near the city wall. Then all hell broke loose as first one, then several fairys burst from their places of hiding within seconds Terhil, and Pellius were paralysed from the fairy venom leaving Erik and Percy to deal with the now seven angry fairies. Percy drew upon his arcane knowledge blasting the fairies with a hypnotic pattern, taking several of them out. Unfortunately Pellius and Terhil were caught in the blast of colour, taking them out too. As Erik and the sorcerer dealt with the remaining fairies, one stubborn creature remained atop Terhil pulling his teeth out one by one. By the time Erik put down the last fairy, Terhil’s face was a bloody mess and nine of his teeth lay strewn around him. Luckily the teeth were easy to reattach with a bi of healing from Erik.
Further investigation into the tooth fairy lair revealed a child tieflings body, toothless and bound in sinews with strange writings in aklo written on it. Unable to work out what it meant the decision was made to bury the body and take the bindings away for further investigation.
With the murder spree dealt with, and the tieflings now safe again, rumours began to circulate around the nursery… The Silver Ravens were back… there was still hope… Thrune’s day was coming….
