"He's had a very rough day," said Polly.  "Excuse me, Shadow.  Would you mind telling me where the shadow gate is?"

The shadow thing nodded.

"Is this way," it said as it lead you deeper into the cave, stopping in front of a small ball of pure darkness floating in the air.

"Oookay," said Polly.  She racked her brain trying to remember if any of her lives had ever known how things like this worked...

OOC:  Using Riddlemaster to know about this thing... My first roll is too low, so Luck reroll gets me a 24 on an Expertise check.

Re: A Small Village in Lemnos
One of your past selves had encountered this before. It's a portal that leads to a shadowy dimension where the victim's senses are dulled and emotions are muted. A blast of highly concentrated light should open it up.

Polly concentrated, focusing her power into a single blast of sunlight.

Re: A Small Village in Lemnos
The portal did open up, you can see the shadow thing shivering in the corner.

"Oh, sorry about that," said Polly, toning the light down.  "I'm just going in here, okay?"

She entered the portal.

You step out of the portal with what must be about a hundred people, all starting to look very confused.

"Okay, be calm, everyone," said Polly.  "You've been controlled by some kind of dark priest of shadows, and had your energy drained by, y'know, dark forces.  It's normal to feel tired and disoriented."

"I'm the Bright... ah... that is, I'm Polly Skladowska," she said.  "Does anyone here know Kendra?  I'm a friend of hers from school."

"Back in town," said Polly.  "I'm the one who's qualified to deal with dangerous things.  Overqualified.  Something."

The people talked amongst themselves.

"Looks like we have no idea."

"Weird," said Polly.  "Well, let's get going back to town, I guess.  Uh.  Let's collect that guy as we go, maybe clean this place out as we go."

The man was gone and only the shadow thing remained.

"Hi!" it said to the people.

"Did he run off or something...?" asked Polly.  "Anyway, his big sacrifice plan is cancelled, all right?  Are you fine with that?"

"oookay, then," said Polly.  "I ought to introduce you to the other Shadow I know, back at school.  You could both have a lot of fun being mystifying at each other.  Anyway, let's go find Kendra."

You find Kendra waiting for you at the same house you left her at.

"Did you find them?" she asked as soon as she saw you.
