With in Xonthals tower, a large lounge with a skeleton of a dragon wrapped around a large fire pit. With nothing of interest, the next teleport symbol, the star.
Jareath pushes the button. The chamber is obviously the work chamber of a wizard with two large books open on a table and a large telescope in the middle. Two doors stand opposite the magic circle. With nothing attacking, the Stag party investigates. Errich looks through the telescope, seeing nothing but sky. Sir Axialrod kicks open the double doors. A balcony sits on the far side of the door, the view covers the maze and village.
On the balcony stand four cultists and a mage. Azim doesn’t see much so holds off. Seakul rushes forward smacks with the pommel of his sword, also summons the power of his god. He then tries to cleave the mages head off. Sir Axialrod tries a shield rush to push a cultist over the rails , he resists but the next doesn’t . Other Cultists resist. Jareath utilises a Thunder Wave at the Cultists, pushing all off the balcony. Errich sees the wizards arm raised in defense, slips forward and sticks his dagger into the soft vital organs. The life drains from the wizards eyes, as he slumps to the balcony floor. Errich uses his slight of hand to search the now dead wizard. Finding an “Hour Glass” key. Heading back to the teleport circle, holding the bloody “Hour Glass” to the button. The magic circle operates, teleporting the party to an unknown destination.
A magically lit room 20′×30′, three dead bodies lie on the ground, Ulfgrim and Errich determine that two were killed by magical bolts, one stabbed. A blood trail leads down the corridor, Errich determines that it was human blood. The corridor leads to a another 40′×40′ blood splatted room. standing amongst the gore are two large Earth Elementals and a large Fire Elemental .
Sir Aialrod attacks the Fire Elemental, striking at the head of the Fire Elemental but since the head just reforms singing the knight. Jareath shoots twice at the Fire Elemental, Errich also shoots the Fire Elementalbut has to watch as his arrow catch fire. Azims fist bounce off the stone like skin of the Earth Elemental, Seakul strikes the Earth Elemental once. Ulfgrim summons his divine power to Banish the Earth Elemental at the back. The Fire Elemental misses as does the Earth Elemental. Sir Axialrod kills the Fire Elemental getting singed in the process. Jareath uses Vicious Mockery to hinder the Earth Elemental, Errich offers advice to Azim who proceeds to smashes magical fist into the Earth Elemental. Seakul swings his great sword striking the Earth Elemental. It then reaches across Azim to strike Errich twice. Sir Axialrod kills it off. Jareath uses his magical abilities to heal the party with Mass Cure Wounds.
The stairs descend down, across a cavern that seem to disappear into infinity, with unknown star systems. Both fighters lead the party to a doorway floating in space, as the party crosses the bridge meteors seem to strike the bridge. Seakul is knocked off the bridge into space…….. Wilhelm Scream.
With no sign of Seakul the party stagger to the doorway. The room behind the doorway is obviously a library, bookshelves surround the outside with a delicate desk in the middle. Azim notices that there maybe a secret door behind a bookshelves. There is also a secret door 10’ feet up. Jareath pulls a book and the bookshelf swings open…. behind is a man in armour ….. Seakul. As the door open, paper is heard rustling. Paper flies around the room.
Paper surround each party members, Errich start by slash wildly. Jareath uses his rapier to collect paper but fails. Azim also strikes about himself. Sir Axialrod buts his sword to good use, shredding the paper on him. Errich gets cut by paper. Ulfgrim uses Green Flame Blade to explode two pile of papers. Seakul readies his action in case paper attack. Errich slips out of combat to investigate the secret door, realizes that the ladder is needed, then heads that way. Jareath casts Elemental Weapon . Azim kicks and strikes paper. Sir Axialrod uses his sword to cut through the paper swarm that was on Errich.
The swarms give Ulfgrim paper cuts. Ulfgrim uses Green Flame Blade again destroying two piles of paper. Seakul moves into the room using Searing Smite to attack the desk with the papers on it, setting the desk on fire. Errich gets to the ladder, maneuvers to the secret door opens it and enters a corridor. Mean while Jareath burns a pile of paper then climbs the ladder to the secret door. Azim hits paper. Sir Axialrod jumps to attack a pile of paper. The papers snuffle around giving deep papers cuts to Seakul. Ulfgrim misses. Seakul smashes the desk to bits.
Errich looks around the room, there is 10’ crystal of roiling flame held in the middle by chains, there is an ornate rod in the middle of the floor. Jareath and Azim kill the papers on them. Sir Axialrod destroys another pile of paper then defends Seakul. More paper cuts to Ulfgrim, two more piles of paper appear. Seakul moves into the corridor.
Errich searches the room calls out to the party. Jareath uses the rod and realizes that it is a control rod to change the view within the crystal. The view flicks to a city made of brass with the flame, the plane of fire. Azim vacates the room, dashing out the room to a doorway across the space bridge. Sir Axialrod also heads out the doorway. Four swarms attack the dwarf.
Seakul exits the door. Errich sprints out the room, across the library then out the door and into the space corridor. Sir Axialrod moves off the space corridor onto solid ground next to Azim. Jareath moves to the doorway but is attacked by paper. The party leaves the library across, across the space bridge to the doorway. Opening the door.
The room contains the remnants of apothecary equipment remains, enough to resupply Jareath. The next room contains two massive hour glasses. The cultist who called us lies slumped in the corner, Errich checks and finds him dead, in his hand he clutches the Blue Dragon mask. Sir Axialrod uses his wand to detect magic, the sand in the hour glass and the Blue Dragon mask. Sir Axialrod in his vandalistic way smashes at the hourglass. As the glass breaks, 4 magical diamonds fall out. He then smashes the other collecting 5 diamonds, tiny magical diamonds. Leaving the room the party continue to investigate the magical dungeon.
The next room contains an Effreet trapped in a room playing chess. He then starts bargaining for his freedom. Xonthal trapped him here until he could beat him in a game of chess. But hadn’t seem him in a number of years. Eventually Ulfgrim casts Banishment. Searching they find nothing, except Errich takes a knight chess piece.
The party heads back across the space corridor. To investigate another wizard workroom. Jareath observes the whirlwind in the middle of the room, a search results in nothing special (without spending a whole day looking). Back to the teleportation circle…. Jareath presses the triangle as the party disappears, reappearing outside the tower, two paths, one to the town, one to a sundial.
Screams can be herd from the town. Day ends.
