Guess what? I found her!!!
WOW ... I am excited because while I was waiting for someone to respond to my question on Yveen ... i wandered around a little, and found a downward staircase ... and it turned out to lead directly back to the area where this entire thing started!!!
Therefore, I was able to sleep (in the cot provided) there (to get rid of the "drunk" state that many of my characters were suffering from by drinking that (nice) vampire's brew ... and then, after a good night's rest ... I backtracked and began to wander around ... and BAM!!! there was Yveen!!!
Soooooo ... I am back in ACTION!! B'bye for now
