Dateline: Somewhere near Avalon. Vlad had just finished (temporarily) killing his longtime nemesis Croaker when he found himself in a bit of a bind. He was right above an elven army, and they seemed to have no reservations about shooting him on the spot. He tried to negotiate his departure, and eventually resorted to fleeing the scene on the back of Zeek under cover of fog.
After outrunning some elves, Vlad and his new friends found themselves in a spot familiar to all of them; right above the sanctuary of Titus Arrakis. They headed into the tunnel below, went behind the throne, and fell for the same rolling boulder trap as he did all those months ago.
Eventually, the party escaped through flight to Avalon, and found it in chaos. Vlad calmed the crowd down, and gained his first followers, and then sought medical attention for his leg/face(?).
He returned to find his buddies arguing with the head mage at the wall, who was promptly killed by a boulder thing. After that, Zeek started casting awesome magic with the totem he just attuned to (which happened in the tunnels) on the approaching elven army. Many fell, but many still stood.
Bloodragers were released to rush the city, and the Siege of Avalon began in earnest.
