Day 28 (continued)
Beyond the secret door is burbling fountain with sulfuric smells. There is a massive figure made of liquid.
- 1 x Liquid Elemental
After defeating the elemental, we quickly heal some and then we try top open the double doors by the pool of water.
We open the doors beyond to reveal a larger room with another pool of water with kneeling forms around it.
An shrine with freshly severed heads.
There is an area at the end of the room with a throne with a cyclops sitting up on it.
It seems we have finally come face to face with Vordakai. He makes an offer to Nisha to be his apprentice. Nisha responds, “Too bad this isn’t a wishing well, then I’d wish you were banished.”
- 1 x Vordakai
After a panicked, zesty fight, we “beat” Vordekai, he says he’ll be back. His body disintegrates leaving behind a ruby gem like object – Occulus of Abaddon.
Up a set of stairs is a room full of soul jars.
One of the rooms is octagonal composed of multiple slabs of opaque crystal of an inverted eye looking inwards. 20 ft diameter circle build in the floor. Conjuration and Divination.
We take a rest.
We then make a way out using 2 walls of stones as bridges over the tar pit room (Hell Room) and shape stone at the water trapped room to make an opening in one of the doors.
We check out the Arcane Locked door on our way out. Stasja is able to dispel it and Alexi was able to pick the lock. Room has a Bas Relief of Eye. Strong magic aura (7-9th level range)
We make our way out of the complex and across the river.
We return to the herd and restore Ushia and Xamanthe to them.
They gift us Skybolt to be able to meet with Spirit of the Land.
We broker a cease fire between the herd and Varn. We release the soul jars and 43 people of Varn are restored.
Maestro Ervil Pendrot is one of those restored. He can broker the sail of the stone tablets with knowledge and the ancient coins. Perhaps we’ll also later broken the stone tablets with spells (once Nisha and/or Leanna learns them).
Jenna will guide her people back to Varn. She would like us to return after our Kingdom turn.
At the end of the day, we teleport back and rest. We will work to restore Gilain from being a statue and to fix Leanna and Alexi’s curses.
We level to 11th level
