We gain a new party member. He is a Drow Eldritch knight named Kemlaech Witherneed. He stumbles into camp, hoping to find help in getting out of this world.

We decide to take a long rest. Drayfala takes the first watch. While watching, a noose falls on Drayfala’s shoulder. It is not attached to anything. He burns it with Firebolt. We continue our rest and are back to health.
We continue on and are in the next area and attacked by a giant wasp, a giant spider, and a giant centipede. We can see a door. We run for it and make it into the next chamber.
We feel we are falling again. We find ourselves looking at a wall of hedges and briars. There are two holes in the hedge. Drayfala tries Flamestrike on the briars, burning some. A vine lashes out but misses him.
Drayfala hears muffled laughter, but no one else does. There is a maze in front of us.
Meena and Kemlaech attempt to figure out the maze and loose Sanity points.
Drayfala walks toward the entrance of the maze. Nothing happens to him and we all follow him.
The path leads to an open garden with 8 paths leading out. We make a pile of pebbles beside the path we came in from.
We try the first door on the right. It winds around and ends up back in the main room. Some of us loose more sanity.
Drayfala casts Lesser Restoration on Kemlaech, restoring half his sanity.

Then the next one has nothing.

It is dark, so Kem casts Dancing Lights. The lights move away and sputter out. Kem says there’s something ahead.
But we don’t run into anything as we curve around. We see light ahead. We come out of the tunnels out of the maze. We see the same fay woman that asked us for our help before and we find ourselves out of the Feywild and back to the circle of stones.
Drayfala sees the Humuclulus running into the forest and blasts him with a Firebolt. He dies.
Kemlaech tells us he has forsworn the Underdarkness and would like to join our party and our mission.
