200 years ago, when Shiro Tagachi unleashed the Jade Wind on Cantha, the guardian of the Echovald Forest, Urgoz was corrupted. All of the trees in the forest turned to stone, and it corrupted the previously benevolent creatures of the forest, such as Urgoz’s wardens.

Perhaps due to their constant struggle against the Luxons, the Kurzicks have sought help from outside to deal with Urgoz and his wardens. I encountered this same situation earlier when the Luxons invited adventurers to kill Kanaxi and his outcasts.

Drawing from my experience in the Deep, I asked a few friends from within my guild to explore Urgoz’s Warren. To my surprise, one of the people I asked had extensive knowledge of Urgoz’s Warren and gladly accepted my invitation. Without further delay Yoruichy, Robin, Mischa, and myself followed Bunny K. into Urgoz’s Warren.

Bunny notified us of the many traps and hazards in Urgoz’s Warren. We could hardly step a few feet without triggering suicidal vampiric creatures to appear. They tried to swarm us and then explode, so we spread out to minimize the fatal damage.

After fulfilling the Flameseeker Prophecies, our actions have released a small army of titans across Tyria. It was foreseen by Glint that the mursaat would die in such an event. Even after the death of their race, titans persist and now threaten humans and dwarves.

Earlier in my journal entry on the Fissure of Woe, I mentioned the requirements needed to enter the gods’ realms are steep. Finding enough skilled adventurers willing to enter the Mists is a challenge in itself. It’s no surprise that mortals shy away from the land of the dead. Through my connections in a guild, I persuaded seven individuals to accompany me into the Underworld and explore every section accessible. Elwin, Selenium, Dark One, Magic D., Bunny S., Solorian and Mini S.T. grouped up by Grenth’s statue in the Temple of Ages before giving the Voice of Grenth our offering to enter his domain.

Once Gwen started traveling with our group, it didn’t take long for her to hear rumors about her mother roaming the Underworld in search for her.

Because Sarah is a ghost and resides in the Underworld, I had to bring Gwen into the Mists to see her mother. At least for a few moments, Gwen was able to drop her guard and let Sarah mother her. I’ve seen the way Gwen shuts everyone out and hides her emotions. Even though her mother is a ghost, and we both know nothing will bring her back, at least Gwen’s scarred heart can be mended here.

Their reunion turned out better than I had hoped for. Sarah was so happy to finally see Gwen alive. She had some advice regarding where her daughter was taking her life, which I’m not sure Gwen appreciated so much, but it was good to see them together.
