TL;DR: Leave ancient monuments and artifacts alone; maintain balance by staying out of the bayou. Otherwise, replace those which you displace. Report also contains information about the ancient Eladrinne in the obelisk and the names and relationships of the hags. See also: Lindir's Report to Udoroth
Ayten's Report Theobold Peacekeeper of the Heralds
A party of us (Lindir of Shield, Aredhel, Glin, Shaena Tosscobble, and a new explorer, Grildor Trueforge) met with Dufdor tonight.
I told him about the spire falling in and fighting the undead wight while Lindir mentioned the discovery of the painting that appears to be a portal to the feywild. Dufdor was displeased and said we need to leave alone the ancient monuments that survived the Great Cataclysm. He noted that there is a place in the west that we especially must not disturb and that the lizardfolk are united in protecting it from interference because the great evil within is worse than the hags. No matter who is in charge, the chiefs rely on honor to guard the pyramid.
He knew of the tomb that I explored with Rawq, the Greenfelds, and Morgrimm, and said that the beings on the murals are fey called Eladrinne who thrived before elves are the elves that we know of today. The Eladrinne harnessed ancient magic that still have a presence in the bayou.
Dufdor cautioned us against awakening the hags. He said the bayou is their playground and their anger has yet to be awakened. The hags are:
You can send the feywild away but you will need a portal. The mirror that Kanyu holds is one key to the portal but we are missing another piece according to Shaena Tosscobble.
We asked in multiple terms what Dufdor's stance was on the hags, lizardfolk, and bullywugs and he was firm in saying that the natural order is of utmost importance. Grindel put his foot down and said that the chaos the hags are manipulating us with needs to be eliminated. To that, Dufdor again said we must then replace what is displaced. He disapproves of deforestation, and irresponsible expansion but admits that if we are reasonable and maintain harmony with the natural world, we can coexist.
Dufdor asked us that we make sure all the people of Black River Island heed his warning not to disturb monuments, ruins, and the natural order. The more we disrupt harmony in the bayou, the more we bring on great evil and chaos.
As we finished our discussion, he muttered,"Oh no. They are angered." He wildshaped into his golden eagle form and took off to the west. The swamp was completely silent. Hopefully, your negotations with the lizardfolk went well.
All the best,
