The group assessed their situation and Tauriel was able to indicate the direction to travel to the Lake where they knew Andromeda would be. On the way they encountered three people, a woman who Andrea identified as a white court, a skinny man with an odd pistol, and a man shifting shape to become Andromeda/Cassieopeia. Cassie raised her fire shield while Andrea raced at the White Court, who dodged her at the last minute. House fired his M-16 at the shapeshifter, having his bullet go through the watery flesh of the being. Tauriel fired her bow at the White Court, hitting her in the shoulder. Alex fired the grenade launcher at the man with the gun, the explosion destroying the man’s shirt and revealing a red uniform beneath and destroying the flesh mask he wore, revealing him to be a lizardlike being, the explosion knocked the ‘Visitor’ to the ground. Vlad drank a potion and took cover behind a tree. The ‘Visitor’ fired at House, hitting him with a blast from his laser pistol, scorching his arm. The shapeshifter turned into something resembling a combination between a boar and a bear, hitting her and bruising her hand. The white court attacked Andrea, missing her. Cassieopeia blasted the shapeshifter with The Word’s Fire, severely injuring the Founder. Andrea clawed at the Founder, injuring him. Eric charged The Visitor, injuring the lizardman. Tauriel fired her bow at the Founder, the arrow slamming into him, killing him. Alex fired at the White Court, hitting her and killing her. Vlad activated his dagger and sliced the Visitor in half. The group gave the laser pistol to Alex, while Eric stripped the uniform from the visitor and put it on under his own clothes
Andrea was concerned about the fate of Susanna and Andromeda, and Cassie confirmed her sister should not ‘kick the girl to the curb’. Cassie sensed the portal to Shadow was still open, and asking The Word for guidance, Alex stepped through followed by everyone else. After some violent spinning and dizziness, the group found themselves back on the floor of the castle, in the middle of the battle between the Lich and the Fomor, which ended in total annihilation of the two forces. Vlad drank his potion of Undead detection and guided the group to the Lich’s Phylactery. Alex, as usual, fired his new laser pistol at the phylactery,it exploding into shards.
After rescuing the girls, the group returned to New York, and upon setting foot on the shore, Cassiopeia died painfully, her soul eternally tortured on the Hunting Grounds, as punishment for breaking her agreement with Coyote.
