    Once again, Taryn called upon us for aid, and once again, Origin showed up en masse. Taryn said that she had learned of the location of the third and final piece, gated us into the mines. We were met by a wall, but this time there were Barrels of some mysterious powder labeled “high explosives” with fuses jutting out of them. Taryn lit the fuses, and we all ran for cover. Once the wall was down, we were confronted by a Gang of Air Elementals, and the fight was on.

    After dispatching the Elementals, Taryn recovered the third piece of the artifact, and we were quickly joined by the evilness of Barbossa!





    Captain Barbossa: Well, well, well, right on time.

    Captain Barbossa: So glad to see you again my dear, and I'm sure your sister is happy as well. *glares at Caryn* Now... *stares icily* give me the items I seek and we'll finish our business here.

    Taryn Sullivan: You monster! Let my sister go!

    Caryn: *struggles*

    Captain Barbossa: *struggles*

    Caryn: *struggles*

    Caryn: *breaks Barbossa's hold on her*

    Caryn: *grabs the pieces from Taryn and plunges them into the heart of the pedestal*

    Taryn Sullivan: Caryn!!!! NOOOOOOOO, what have you done!

    Caryn: I'm sorry! It's the only way to finish this!

    Taryn Sullivan: Run Caryn!!!!

    Captain Barbossa: *screams wildly* Stop!! Captain Barbossa: *glares* NOOOOoooo you fool!!! Do you know what you have done??

    Caryn: *watches as the artifact shakes*

    Taryn Sullivan: no Caryn! No!!! *tries to pull Caryn away*

    Captain Barbossa: Foolish child! You haven't seen the last of me!!!!



    As the last tremor emanated from the Artifact, the mine was covered with creatures so foul, the very air around them was poisonous. The creatures seemed impervious to attack, but as we have done before in the face of adversity, we came together and fought as bravely as possible. The Breaths of Aeolus were fierce, but under the concerted efforts of everyone we finally defeated them.

    After the battle we rushed back to Caryn and the artifact.



    Taryn Sullivan: *runs for the pedestal* NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO *cries in anguish* Caryn! No please, please, don't leave me now!

    Caryn: *lays a hand on Taryn's shoulder* Sister, don't weep for me, we both knew the Enchantment had to be destroyed. This was...this way the only way

    Taryn Sullivan: but the price is too high

    Caryn: If I had not done what I had Barbossa would have taken the Enchantment, and everyone would have suffered in the long run. Or you would have been forced to destroy it yourself, knowing that Barbossa would not let me live anyway

    Caryn: *smiles softly and wipes the tears from Taryn's face* I could not place that burden on your heart our mother told me what had to be done Taryn. I've seen them, our parents you should know how proud they are of you and how very proud I am to have a sister such as you. Even though you won't see us, know that we'll be watching over you always. We'll always be in your heart and when you feel the gentle spring breezes touch your cheek know that we are with you *smiles* you will see us again, don't mourn sister rejoice in the time we had and know that I love you I'll be with you always...remember me and smile.

    Taryn Sullivan: *smiles through her tears*

    Caryn: I've left you something so you'll always remember me and how much I loved you go now; go back to our family's circle. I love you Taryn.

    Taryn Sullivan: I will always remember, and I'll try to be thankful for whatever short time we had.

    Caryn: *touches her sister for the last time and fades away*

    Donal: *gently touches Taryn's shoulder and says softly* go my dear... see what your sister left for you.

    Taryn Sullivan: *turns devastated eyes to Donal* Donal, I can't just leave her here…

    Donal: Be at mind's ease Taryn. I'll take care of her, I promise I'll be waiting for you at home *bends to gently lift Caryn's body*

    Taryn Sullivan: *looks at the gathered crowd beseechingly* Will you come with me?

    Taryn Sullivan: the ancient circle of my *weeps* family *runs her hand down the pedestal and removes a memory* yes, I'll remember *turns to everyone* I hope you'll touch the pedestal and remember as well... touch it twice and never forget my sister and what she sacrificed for all of us I'm going now to mourn, thank you for your efforts on our behalf but I've lost something precious to me *wipes a tear and slowly walks for home*
