Where: Eastern Athalish Empire
When: MR 8222 Collis 3 - 5
Meet: October 18 2008
The party met Shimin at the spire of Rithigoth in Athalin and were sent on an urgent mission to free an unnamed ally from a vault in the eastern Athalish Empire near the town of Proculus.
The party were given a rune scroll and the numbers 14409, and were told that each were combinations they would require.
The party secured directions from an old maid who had been romantically entangled with one of the vault's original builders
following the road HH was quickly lead off track by a powerful enchantment upon a nearby pillar which acted as a irresistable beacon to non-humanoids.
The party did battle with a draconic servant of Tiamat there the black wyrm Tetraion.
Caelum skinned the wyrm upon it's defeat while the others were resting.
Star found treasure in the sand at the base of the wayward pillar.
Cautious about further pillars the party approached the vault and made camp for the night.
Entering the vault they came upon a trap which constricted the corridor, crushing them mercilessly until they managed to extract themselves.
The party was then ambushed by a group of half-dragon half-stone giant fighters attacking from murderholes in the next coridor, Nervosh was wounded when a counterstrike failed but otherwise the party fared relatively well.
Next they came upon a circular room with a sliding rune puzzle. After extensive investigation it was learn t that someone had scrambled the puzzle and, by unscrambling the puzzle in consultation with one of the guard corpses the party managed to revert it to it's original state where the rune scroll given by Shimin completed the vault combination which read: The slain god with five heads if freed will take vengeance upon all living things. Shortly thereafter an ominous thud was heard.
