August 4
Started in room w/ 2 alters
  • Walked back towards area with “Y-like” symbols on the floor which set off traps that awaken some unforseen evil
  • Aelar & Alren jumped over the symbols w/ amazing athletics
  • Skeleton warns the rift shall never be opened
  • But Alren slips on his 2nd jump and tries to catch his fall. He reaches to stabilize himself and his hand lands on a symbol, setting off a horrible scream
  • Yurana, Frea and Chant hear a shrieking sound, blood pours out of their ears as they run for their lives, as far away from the sound as possible.
  • They catch their breath and decide to explore in the direction they originally headed out for.
  • Alren screams, “ZOMBIES!!!”
  • Frea pees herself in terror but bravely runs towards her bretheren to help, but is still a little frightened and stumbles onto the symbol.j
  • Another screetching sound, but the heroes are prepared this time and cover their ears!
  • The heroes continue to fight the zombies and they prove formidable but weak
  • ZOMBIES DEAD!!!
  • Our heroes decide to check out the rest of the dungeon floor before they adventure through the stairwell past the zombie ‘sanctuary’
  • They head back to the double doors past the 2 alters that prayed to to stop the catacombs from puking out skeletons
  • With the wooden doors open, they see a raise platform with a single coffins
  • Humanoid figure carved onto the coffin w/ a sword laid across it
  • Chants touches the coffin
  • Yurana nudges the coffin lid open, with Chants help and a armored skeleton w/ a long sword arises, angered!
  • Skeleton warns the rift shall never be opened
  • He questions Alren first, asking him WHY he’s here
  • Chant says we strongly agree and that we’re here to help close the rift
  • Frea tells him she serve Sune, the God of love which pleases the skeleton
  • Yurana tries to bluff, says she is part of the rock and controls everything that is rock, but the skeleton sees right through it; she tries professing her love for her god Kord, but the skeleton doesn’t believe she is a devoted servant of Kord
  • Skeleton questions how Alren could possibly have a dispicable dwarf and an untrustworthy elfven rogue in his group
  • Alren and Chant are able to convince him that Yurana is trustworthy and a strong fighter
  • Skeleton yells actually a murderer who killed wife and children
  • Skeleton tells us his story and says he was tainted by the darkside of the rift
  • Gives the heroes a longsword (inlaid w/ platinum with 3 white diamonds, head of a noble dragon carved)
  • Aecris longsword
  • Seaks Bahamuts tomb
  • The heroes head back to the Bahamut alters
  • Aelar puts his platinum dragon statue on the one he’s praying to
  • Nothing happens
  • They head towards the east stairwell past the bedrooms
  • It leads to a dirtfloored, unpaved room with rats and an Ocre-colored blob/jelly/goo in the distance
  • They attack the rats without hesitation
  • Jelly slowly creeps towards our heroes
  • When the jelly reaches the heroes, after a few hits, he splits into 2 jelly’s but Chant quickly bloodies him
  • Chant is hit hard and near death; while the jelly is distracted he sneaks away and up the adjacent stairwell out
  • Alren deals the final blow on one of the jellies
  • Frea runs to Chant’s aid and is able to stabilize him; on 2nd thought, Frea feels the need to thrust her throbbing wand into Chant’s belly yelling “coup de gras!!!!!” but misses and just pierces his ear
  • Aelar sneaks around the “back” of the last remaining jelly and with all his might jabs his sword into what can only described as his brain
  • Our heroes head back to a room with beds which they saw the fat goblin run into but disappeared
  • The rest for a night, and once again the Teifling gently opens his eyes full of life and vigor, ready to take on the day’s adventures
  • Heroes head back into the dirt-paved area
  • They find a secret room, with a bedroll, 2 sunrods, 2 days trail rations, wine skin, water skin (1 w/ water, 1 w/ ALe)
  • They continue through the cavern
  • They come across a 10ft pit w/ a dead 6 legged lizard laying at the bottom; it looks like it fell through a thin layer of covering and is stuck in the pit
  • As they scooch past the dead lizards coffin, Yurana falls into a concealed pit and falls in; Frea quickly says a spell and lands Yurana safely at the bottom
  • Around the corner they find more of these lizards, with one big lizard who seems to be thier leader
  • Chant, angered by the pain surging thru his friends, and his buddy Alren stuck in a pit, deals the killing blow; he casts his Witch fire spell, fire comes out of his eyes and hands, the last lizard screams a painful scream; it starts burning up and melts into a sizzling pile of 112 Kelven
  • The heroes help Alren out of the pit, and hurry to the pile of treasure
  • In it they find: 47GP 216SP, small chest among coins contains 5 amethyst gems (worth 50gp each), XP: 207xp each
  • They still have yet to find the fat goblin who ran away, but they feel they may be closing in on him
