Previously on Critical Role Edit

"The party has just returned after a long, arduous trek through the Underdark, beneath the dwarven city of Kraghammer. They were sent to retrieve a paladin named Lady Kima of Vord who was on a vision quest to stop some dark evil that her deity, Bahamut, told her was existing beneath this mountain range, and needed to be squelched. The party managed to salvage her from insidious torture and, through her aid, as well as a mind flayer who had been outcast from the society and the colony nearby, whom they managed to convince to help them as well, fought their way through the tunnels, past the duergar army, eventually to the underground mind flayer colony of Yug'Voril, where they found that this entity called K'Varn, that was eventually revealed to be a mad beholder who had been pseudo-possessed and given additional power by the Horn of Orcus, a great and evil artifact, long forgotten, which had been found by this entity.

"They managed to make their way into the temple, kill K'Varn, tear the horn from its forehead, however found themselves swarmed immediately by an entire colony of mind flayers heading towards the top of this temple. They managed to battle and battle, nearly losing a few party members, and, through some ingenuity, escaped through the top, gliding over the city of Yug'Voril through this underground chasm to a distant embankment along the beachside of this underground lake, and teleport their way back to their base city of Emon. So they've come back to Emon, they've come to their keep, Greyskull Keep, they've had an evening of rest. Upon waking the next morning, they've managed to get some breakfast, they've freed Lady Kima from her stone entrapment, as she was turned to stone during the battle with the beholder, and had a conversation based around what should or could be done about this Horn of Orcus, this evil artifact."
