Had I known of and owned EotLQ before any of this started... believe me, I never would have done / had to do this sort of massive clusterfudge to get where we're going. Heh heh.
Most of this is just the result of allowing and following the whims of the four characters after the conclusion of the daelkyr temple section. I figured I'd be able to pull everyone together after they all went their seperate ways... and while that is ostensibly true... there's quite a number of "coincidences" that have had to occur for it to happen. Not my prefered method of storytelling... but what can ya do, huh?
