Timeline: The Epic Battle of the Past, Day 1?
After escaping the dragons and killing the Elder in this timeline, we rested for a moment and went back in time to the climactic battle.
Korbin had gone on a murdering spree in the Feywild while the rest of rested, and it juiced up the dagger a lot. Not that it mattered, because apparently the abilities would go away if the dagger was given to Lyanna to kill the Elder as dictated by prophecy.
When we arrived at the battle, it was chaos. Dragons as far as the eye could see, storms, breath weapons, and fighting all around. We used the time machine to close the paradox and ended up lying on the ground with the time machine nowhere in sight. We were stranded, perhaps permanently in the past.
I contacted Lyanna through the Sending Stones and followed her instructions up the river. On the way, we were interrupted by a group of White Dragons. I quickly spun a lie with Dan’s aid that we were working with their temporary allies, the Black Dragons. I convinced them to carry us along the river in order to “seek out the gold dragon flight and destroy them.” An obvious ruse, but White Dragons aren’t too bright.
Ironically, my lie paid off as we actually did run into young gold dragons and elves. I was planning to let the White Dragons do their business as they were a convenient ride. But the others had different plans and they quickly killed the white dragons, while planting the seed that the Black Dragons were traitors. At this point, I suddenly remembered that those two flights had wiped each other out after word of betrayal got out. Two flights with one stone, I guess.
Soon afterward, we met up with a Rakshasa that introduced itself as Lyanna! She had informed me that she was being chased by the Time Cops and that she was in a different form. We managed to evade her pursuers, but we couldn’t figure out if it was actually her or just the Elder playing an elaborate ruse. She said all the right things and passwords and didn’t resist Kronk trying to strangle her.
As it was, we still had no idea where the Elder was and if the prophecy was meant to kill the Elder or Lyanna in the Rakshasa form.
