Let’s again up. The Crone’s plan appears to be to seduce as a lot of our heroes to the Wyrm’s aspect as doable. Ideally, she would have gotten each Package and Airk on her staff together with Elora Danan. When Elora resists the Wyrm’s fantasy life for her — a fortunately ever after with Airk — the Crone steps in to struggle her.
