Haven't updated in a while, and we haven't played that much, either. Here's a brief recap:
They got the Beacon of Hope with no trouble by convincing the awakened golem guarding it that they're the good guys (they had a unicorn and a lammasu with them, so it wasn't that hard.
They have to light this on the highest mountain. So they used the druid's 1x/day Transport via Trees spell (or whatever it's called) to teleport as close as they could to the mountain. They couldn't go all the way because its summit is above the treeline. In fact, they only got to the foothills near it. As they were trudging their way up through a pass, they encountered a couple of stone giants playing catch with boulders. After dodging a couple of boulders, they convinced the stone giants to be friends, and the giants suggested they take a shortcut through some dwarven ruins. They avoided falling down a "bottomless" crevasse by not actually riding on the mining carts... and just as they were nearing the exit, they were attacked by an unseen vrock's telekinesis. After a pitched battle, they got the vrock down to 2 hit points where it promptly teleported away. (The greenbound giant crocodile summoned by the druid did most of the heavy lifting... with the pixie repeatedly intimidating the vrock with Imperious Command to keep it cowering for several rounds so it couldn't really put up much of a defense...)
The next encounter will be the "final battle" against the BBEG and his minions. The druid will be 9th level.
