OOC:
 

Zoe finds she doesn't have enough information to counter Jojo or Carlos's reasonable arguments so she tries a different tactic. "What do we even know about the Harken's Heart druids anyway? Did Ludmilla mention anything about their history, Hunter?"

After a short, peaceful walk to the remaining door (map east), you guys find it locked. When approached, the stone that operates the door is different than the others in that the elvish word for open has not lit up. The door of roots won't open no matter how many times "open" is pushed. Above the door is a likeness of a big tree surrounded by a light blue circle, not unlike the color of the dead druid's robe.

Jojo senses a protective aura from the door that continues into the wall, ceiling, and floor. Such holistic bindings are typical for followers of the Spirit Way such as druids, that draw their power from the Primal Spirits. The power source for this binding is likely the strongest spirit in the area.

Hunter traces one of his horns to the tip ponderously. "I don't know how we're supposed to commune with a spirit. It would be dumb luck if Zoe could simply offer a prayer to her patron deity. Maybe...that meditation room? Kind of a long shot, but it's the one place aside from what lies beyond this door that the gnolls didn't invade."

The cleric considers Carlos' idea for a few seconds. "I could try with Jojo's help. I don't know if it will work or not. I mean Jojo, the druids, and I all use different mojo for our power sources."

"The tree? Uh."

Kathryn's expression is one of reflection and concern. The young woman stares at the door for a long moment, until she suddenly turns around and starts walking towards the biggest room of the grove, leaving the rest of the party behind. She stops in front of the tree, looks up at the branches, and after some hesitation, she greets it with a bow.

"Hi. I'm Kathryn. Over there are Zoe, Hunter, Jojo and Carlos. We came to free this grove from the gnolls who attacked the poor people of this place... I'm sorry we couldn't save anyone." She lowers her head. "But there's still one door left locked, and the others said you might be responsible for it. So could you open it for us, so we can finish the job? Please."

She bows again.

"I could help, if it's not too much trouble. I keep Melora's tenets, like my uncle before me. He told me that according to legend, a war broke out between the treants of the forests of Winterbole and Harken thousands of years ago, and the Harken's Heart druids joined the latter. They were ruthless and incredibly violent to the point they shocked their allies so much, Eyton, their own ally among the Harken treants, cursed them, and it was only by Melora's grace that they were given their powers, but they only have them if they don't leave the forest..."

He blinks rapidly. "I uh...oops. My bad, Zoe. I forgot to answer." Get over her already. Holy crap, dude.

Carlos' jaw hangs open. He looks flabbergasted at Hunter, then at Jojo, back at Hunter... then just walks away shaking his head in frustrated disgust.

He approaches Kathryn, rather tired "¿So Katita, any luck talking to the magic tree?"

"What, why didn't you tell us that sooner you big dope?! That just leads to more questions like why are they helping the Druids of Eyton's Grove at all? Wouldn't they hate them for making it so they are stuck in the forest? Gah, I hate politics! Hey, Kat, where are you going?"

Zoe follows Kat to the garden, now with 100% more ash from Jojo and Carlos' earlier handiwork containing the demon corruption. The tree stands as tall and proud as last time you saw it.

Before Kat can respond the great tree starts shaking, causing copious amounts of leaves to fall and still they come. Way more leaves than should be possible fill the air and ground, the leaves flashing through every color of the rainbow and in rhythm with your heart beats. The magical moment lasts for 5 precious seconds before the leaves zoom away back towards the locked door, leaving no indication whatsoever that anything happened at all.

Kathryn falls on her bum, completely surprised by this turn of event. Once the leaves are gone, she blinks multiple times and looks around the room in shock. She barely registers what Carlos said.

She takes his hand, stands up, and looks at the tree again.

"Thanks. We'll do our best."

She returns to the door to see if it can be opened now.

Well, cuz gnolls are bad, and..." Hunter trails off in embarrassment. "Hey, I'm not the one who just handed them a chip to bargain with! I don't think the treants would even go for it, if they're smart and it came down to Nesme deciding not to honor the deal."

Later, after leaves whirl about a magic tree, he.... "Wow, so all we had to do was talk to the tree? We're really lucky today."

OOC:
 

When you guys approach the door once more there is no sign of the leaves. However, the elven word for open is now lighting up and Carlos wastes no time in pressing it. When the roots have opened the way, another bedroom is revealed. The room itself is a simple affair. A double bed is in the corner, a wardrobe formed out of wood and ivy, and a simple table with four chairs.

Oh and a very large panther in the middle of the room. It's ears are back and after growling a challenge it says, "Stay back intruders, or I'll answer you with claw and tooth!" It is a man's voice and he is clearly upset.
