    I don’t know if my experience differed from the others, but when we slayed my husband last night, he had a sort of necromantic protection that prevented me from using my earth killing blow on him. Valeron used a cleansing killing blow, I think, that broke the protection. Valeron believed it to be an outside source that empowered the protection.

    Once the protection was broken, my husband appeared to turn to dust (like previous candle born we have killed) but then I stabbed him through the heart with my own dagger and magic and he appeared to be destroyed. Much like a regular undead would be if we killed them with cleansing.

    I’m not sure what this means. This differs from what Zyra told me was her experience with her father. Valeron and I discussed it afterwards and we think that we may have prevented my dead husband to immediately return to then site or candle or whatever they return to. Maybe it delayed him reforming for longer?

    I’d like to say he’s dead forever, but I am no master of these things, and I usually don’t get my hopes up for things that deserve to happen.

    Oh, and the jerk carried a necklace that he gifted to me in life and then he was buried with it because screw him that’s why.

    I’m holding onto the necklace, no one else will find use for it anyway.

    Has anyone actually destroyed one of the candles at the burial sites of any of the Candleborn? Any attempt? Success? If so, what were the results?

    I went with a couple others to my father’s grave to see if such was possible. The candles that had been there had been destroyed by the villagers and there wasn’t anything left behind. I believe the Candles they are linked to are in Kaizran’s possession and therefore likely in Ku’Vahl beyond our easy reach.

    Zyra,

    I ask because I was told that if the candles were destroyed then the Candleborn would no longer be able to reform. I’m just trying to verify the truth in that. Have we seen your father since the last encounter where you both took a death?
    I worry that instead of reforming to a physical state, that they turn into Shades. There have been reports of sightings. We fought one a few weeks ago in Ku’Vhal

    Rin,

    The time I went to the grave was after the first encounter with him, during the ritual to restore Nos Talanos that Kaizran disrupted, but before the second encounter where he took my life. I made the trip to his grave in the hopes of disrupting Kaizran’s plans to bring him back again, and that is when I found out that the evidence there had been destroyed a while before.

    I went to the gravesite the night of the solstice immediately after the night we first killed him. And as I was watching over his grave-site, knowing that night was one when Kaizran would try to bring him back, as she needs a night of power to do so, I felt that he was indeed brought back to unlife, but no undead showed up around the grave-site.

    He then showed up later just before Winterfest in the Dream Realm and in a physical state. Therefore I believe even if they are slain they will reappear in a physical form eventually, if only on a night of power. I don’t know what would happen after they are empowered then slain, but the shade-like form we fought a few weeks ago in Ku’Vahl, although strong, didn’t seem stronger than the flesh Candleborn we were also facing, it actually seemed a bit more tethered and less actually present, maybe half formed? Although that doesn’t even seem quite the right description. Meaning that it was not likely an empowered Candleborn, and I didn’t feel the presence of my father that night so it was not likely him.

    I believe the specific candles that need destroying were taken from the graves when the Candleborn were raised. Other candles were left behind, but I feel this is a situation where there may have been multiple candles used in the ritual to focus the magical energies and these candles were the ones left behind, while a single candle that actually held the powers similar to a phylactery was taken from the indefensible location of the grave-sites.

    Does anyone have a relationship or worked with Ir’ithna the mummy in the past?
    She has been studying the Candleborn and if we have someone help her with research or talk to her we may be able to find out more.
    I’ve met her once and we didnt speak at all and as for research, this stuff is out of my wheelhouse. Anyone willing to contact her?

    I certainly don’t think bringing more undead into this mess will make things better.

    Isn’t she neutral towards the Kingdom of the Night? If she’s studying them and, I think, she has helped us in the past, wouldn’t it be beneficial to contact her?

    I have only heard rumors about this mummy, so I cannot say for certain.

    What you said stuck with me J’hunai. That makes sense, I’m willing to take the plunge on contacting Kaizran.

    What shall I say, more or less?

    Just wanted to verify if anyone wrote Irithna yet. If not I was going to send her a pigeon.

    I hadn’t yet, though I am more than willing to. I wanted to understand what we’d hoped to communicate as a group first before writing her, but no one clarified.

    What do you hope we tell her, Rin?

    So, I should give some additional information.

    On the rainy night we went into Kuh’vahl to get the banner, I was able to get more information on what we may have accomplished with regards to Kaizran.

    1) The group that was doing…whatever it was with the wells were not finished with what they were working on. They were probably halfway when we showed up and they didn’t finish before they left.

    2) What they did do is to tap into a kind of ritual magic that I have heard of that allows the caster to empower a large number of people at once. The ability is fickle and small, but it was there.

    Hope it is helpful information. I have a few other things I am working on with regards to the candleborn, but that is what I have found out so far.

    Okie dokie then….if we want potential info from Ir’ithna someone who knows her must write her. My message was destroyed by a minion since she doesn’t know me. Charming.

    Just updating with some info. I’ve told people about this but forgot to post it. Apologies.

    -Rin

    Kaizran’s undead have been fighting alongside Sir Veracyte’s forces within Ku’Vahl. They have been actively working to put down lesser undead which are opposed to the rule of Tal Sigor.

    During some of those battles, a number of Kaizran’s CandleBorn were defeated, but the same CandleBorn were seen as shades only a few days later. Hopefully this proves they regenerate after being defeated, they first regenerate as shades/wraiths, and then eventually reform as corporeal undead at some point later.

    Kaizran fully restored many defeated CandleBorn by performing some type of ritual or ceremony on the Winter Solstice. It is unclear if she will be able to do this again on the upcoming Summer Solstice.

    Lastly, found a report referring to at least one unknown female CandleBorn (Not Mort’s Mother, and not Kaizran). Unfortunately, I don’t know who this is. Possibly Leetah’s family member?
