Loregan, it seemed, was a spell construct created by Rigby Relano. In the event of Relano’s death, Loregan was programmed to take whatever steps necessary to bring Rigby back to life. To this end, the party had been subtley manipulated into providing him with the tools he needed—including providing a reason for kidnapping the people of South Drellis to collect Rigby’s soul.
Utilizing the machine beneath the ground of Mechanus, Loregan recombined the broken pieces of Rigby’s soul into the party. Finding that he could no longer contain the ritual—and realizing that the completion of the ritual would destroy him—Loregan attacked the group. However the ritual was completed, bringing Rigby back into the mortal realm and depowering Loregan into a familiar. Back on board the Dreadnaught, the party found that one of the eggs had hatched, birthing a young Formian queen who has been allowed to stay on board the boat.
With Rigby back—and with little to show for the party’s trip to Mechanus besides the Eladrin—the party returned to the Winter Court, planting the remaining Formian eggs in the realm. They planned to attack the Lord of Frost, who they believed to be a Obyrith in disguise. However, when they attacked the Lord, the party quickly realized two things: the Lord of Frost was the true leader of the Winter Court, and he was entirely too powerful for them. As they were distracted by the Lord’s attacks, the angel Pazreal appeared, cutting down Winston and stealing the Boon of Avandra. Pazreal revealed himself to be the Obyrith lord Pazuzu, who had fed the party bad information through his lieutenant on Carceri.
Ejected from the Winter Court by an enraged Lord of Frost, the party has turned their sights on the next potential ally for the war on the Obyriths—the primordials living in the Elemental City of Brass.
