After disposing a giant shark, heroes were approached by eight ameba-like, shapeless underwater entities, aboleths. Connal took upon his shoulders a burden of discussing with them and learned they were fearing the Kraken. Heroes agreed to investigate beast's case, if army stops siege. Abloeths agreed and promised to support them with their troops. The same was with sea elves and soon an extraordinary army moved on. After two weeks f travel, group reached a barren area of sea bed, where a huge pit was centered. Inside of it lived a terrifying monsters of depths... or didn't they? It was obvious, while some giant octopuses and squids dwelt there, no monstrous Kraken was present. Was it's existence another Carlin's lie?

Heroes returned to Coral and made report and than left for surface. They set course to Siriana, where the wanted to gather information about arcanists, flying cities and general whereabouts. During stay in port, they were approached by an elder man named Bracket, who was retired Road Warden. He was troubled with messages from friend of his, a sylvan queen Syntira of Darkmoon Valley. Her subjects were dying of strange plague, as well as many woodcutters too. Symptoms were similar to those of Isandrea Stella. It was created by dryad that wanted get rid of humans and Lumberjack consortium, but she disappeared long ago.

Heroes set out and after one day of travel along well-lighted roads, they arrived at Falcon's Hollow, small town, that was center of human's operations. Soon characters found that for some time sick lumberjacks were coming to town, to achieve curing and problems were centered deep in woods. One of the camps were under almost constant siege by wood creatures and so heroes moved to it. Journey took a full day and by the evening, after braving woods, valleys and streams, heroes arrived at their destination. The found lumberjacks fighting for their lives and loosing.

Heroes quickly joined the fray, moving against strange half-animal and half-plant creatures. They were of size and shape bear, entangled with thorns and stuffed-up with colorful, bright flowers. Combat wasn't to tough for heres but of all lumberjacks, only two survived. Finally, heroes defeated creatures and were able to help survivors...
