The Story of the Hags

The hags were originally working with Eugenia Cadorna to find a cure for his wife’s affliction – the same affliction that caused him to welcome in the acolytes of Bane. Porphyrus sought them out to have them retake the Textile House from the gnolls, but they kept it instead.

Yarash the Sorcerer’s memories

  • Vorbyx’s Hammer was given to the nomads for safe-keeping until someone deemed worthy enough came along.
  • Yarash was helping Abarat with her study of the Pool of Radiance and portal magic when they were attacked by Tyranthraxus in a possessed Ogre. They sent the Pool to another plane.
  • Tyranthraxus kidnapped Abarat to work for him.
  • The witch came from Sigil.

The Witch’s revelations

  • She is a very powerful magic user that seemingly exists outside of space and time?
  • Tyranthraxus is behind all of this. He uses people as vessels, as he is currently doing with the ancient bronze dragon, Srossar.
  • He is trying to acquire Vorbyx’s Hammer so that he can unite the creatures under his power.
  • He is somehow trying to control the Pool of Radiance to, among other things, pull a mech army from another world to fight for him.
  • He pulled Armegedon from his world because he has plans for him.
  • Salv was created from the Pool of Radiance which the people of Netheril controlled before their thirst for power corrupted them and brought their society literally crashing down from the heavens.
  • There’s a puuuurfectly good explanation why Luthien is seeing cats all around, and she isn’t done with him yet.
