D&D: Concluding Some Business

Previously,  I described how an attempt to execute a powerful shape-shifter was derailed when they transformed into Alden's dead wife and then switched bodies with him during the ensuing confusion.

The finale wasn't very literary, but it was entertaining for those of us present.  We carefully planned where each of us would be.  We had to consider distance to water, who was standing next to whom, and many other details.  We arranged a code phrase and a physical feat for each person to use to demonstrate their identity.  Eventually, we put our complicated plan into effect.  It was Lazlo who delivered the fatal blow, lifting the curse which Grimdark had placed upon him.  Corelis remains cursed.
