The session resumes as the party meets the sacred Oak tree just outside town.
The party compares some notes while Apata is brief on her new mission.
The dragon orbs are pieces of the mythlar and are used to wield control over the other mythlar. A singular orb is all that is necessary to gain the access to the magic contained within them and they would be more than powerful enough to raise Ashdor, if one can wield the power.
