Glittering World by Mind Map: Glittering World

1. One of the Archfey of the Court of Stars seeks to expand their dominion to the material plane by infecting mortals with a magical plague to which the Fey are largely immune, but which will decimate and weaken the population of the material plane, leaving them defenceless against the Fey

1.1. How do the PCs work this out?

1.2. How will they determine who the Archfey responsible is?

1.3. Orphiocordyceps Unilateralis style of fungus that implants into human brains, making them docile and quiet, losing their appetite and their ability to focus, eventually wasting away, the spores releasing from their dying bodies

2. Courtiers of one of the Fey Courts have been whisking lost mortals away for some purpose. The adventurers must determine who it was, and how to free them - combat, bargaining, or trickery?
