Getting prepared to run my group through Hellgate Keep. The hook is supposedly to help Alustriel retrieve a Staff of Silverymoon
It refers the DM to The Seven Sister supplement for the powers of the Staff of Silverymoon
However, in said document it states that Alustriel can call any staff to her at any time from anywhere:
" Alustriel can call these staves to her or teleport to them. The transportation magic is a function of the staff, and it requires no spell use on her part. This teleportation is without error. If a staff is enclosed within solid matter, Alustriel will know this, and she can elect not to go to it or to appear in the nearest safe space. No known barriers can prevent a staff of Silverymoon from transporting itself to her if she calls it. "
So...is the dead magic area what prevents her from calling it?
