With Odallie’s assistance, Chari rounded up a few studious individuals still on campus to aid in researching a means of destroying Cordyceps. However, the guides to the Iriswood University library seemed to be malfunctioning. Chari and Odallie found themselves led, over and over, into seemingly random sections of the stacks. After some time, Chari noticed a strange entity was following them. While it did not appear to be hostile, it was certainly unsettling. She decided to get some advice from Jinn on how to handle the situation.
Meanwhile, Sir Bartleby met with several professors to learn more about the Ushers of Seudihr and the Unbreakable Blades. While in the history department he met with Riella. The aasimar academic theorized that information regarding the Blades had been subjected to a magical block, thus explaining why so little was known about a group that had ostensibly prevented an apocalypse. Perhaps the most unnerving information was provided by the brilliant, but timid, Professor Langdon. Her research on the Ushers led her to believe four such entities existed, which took the form of dragons on the material Plane. Armed with this information he decided to consult Jinn on what they should do next.
Jinn, deciding that a bit of rest and relaxation was in order, was planting the seeds for a huge celebration on campus when Chari and Bart barreled into him. Both excitedly explained their discoveries to their companion. The trio agreed that, while world-ending dragons certainly required attention, perhaps the more immediate issue was the entity in the library. The group made their way into the stacks where Chari goaded the creature into revealing its true nature. It seemed Iriswood had a bookwyrm infestation.
