Dragon King Legacy

Turning up the Heat
Log 59

The group went to the next door and had a look inside.

It was very cold and a shrine was present within. Crystaline armour surrounded by dragon statues and gargoyles, Beorn & Ragnar shouted warning to Khaine which was checking out the statue when it moved and hit him, everyone rushed in. For Khaine it was a running battle with him doing the running and throwing the occasional dagger.

The group was getting colder by the breath attacks of these things until Taklinn cried out for his god to intercede and help them and a Treeant appeared and laid waste to what remained before getting grumpy and demanding payment for its services which Taklinn paid.

The identified the groove in the floor and using the lessons learnt from the previous chamber used a mixture of Cone of Cold and ice water, rumbling in the distance increased in volume and tempo.

The rested up only to find the rumbling had stopped, whatever it was, was on a timer.

Lyari said not to go into the fire room but the group convinced him that they had to go in there at some point and they knew how to activate the shrines now so it should be easy!

Venturing in found the room to be warm with a statue of a brazier surrounded by ash.

Beorn spotted the groove in the floor and called down a Flame Strike which explosively ignited the ash turning it into a Huge Fire Elemental, the room became volcano hot!

Beorn summoned in a Ice Elemental which promptly caught fire! The group could hear the rumbling in the distance increase but wanted to finish off the elemental before they were burnt to a crisp…

What a Shocker!

The group decided to check out the guardhouse where the Ettin had come from, a bank of magical screen greeted them but only half seemed to work, Beorn found a dial that gave him a bit of shock when he tried to turn it and gave up on it. After a search of the room and finding a secret room with a few items of interest, they headed to the big metal door.

The door turned out to be a massive metal slab protected by an anti-magic field. The strongest characters tried to move the slab but to no avail, it was stuck fast, maybe there was a way of opening it from the four doors they had yet to explore?

Each door was very ornate and had two dragons that shared the same element but were of chromatic and metallic colours, this puzzled the group since both hated each other, why were they together on the doors?

Each door was made of bronze with the exception of one door which had some copper in addition.

Opening the door took some effort but it revealed a grid of copper work on the floor and walls with a groove in the floor with mostly copper inlaid into it.

After some experimenting they figured out what to do and fired a Lightning Bolt into the groove…

The result was being stuck in a room where lightning bolts crashed around them and a Wil-o-wisp tried to kill them, Taklinn took the fight to it trying to capture it in a sack only to lose it over a Griffon's head, summoned by Beorn.

After about ten minutes the lightning had stopped and the wil-o-wisp had been destroyed.

Walking out the group noticed a rumbling noise coming from the area of the metal slab.

One door down, three more to go….

The fight was brief but a combination of luck (and the horror that was Beorn) swung the fight without out many other casualties, other than Khaine shadow jumping to a spot on the ceiling just as an anti-magic field was turned on and he plummeted 70ft! But he dusted himself off afterwards.

The group had a look around before finding the big door at the back of the cavern. It had a series of levers with a series of riddles, the lever themselves took a bit of time to move as they were meant for Huge size creatures!

After about 10 minutes the group figured out the combination and the door opened.

Before the group was five large corridor leading away to the left, right and straight on, there was also a watch tower on the right and a smaller study building on the left, advancing into the room attract some missile fire from the tower and the group laid down covering fire while the melee fighters got stuck in however they could help.

Taklinn found it very entertaining when he found out they were skeleton archers and had the please of thrusting his symbol into their faces to destroy them.

While the group was dealing with the tower they were ambushed by a Draconian Ettin which used both its breath weapons to hideous effects, it's hammers bashing anyone that got near it until the melee fighters leapt in and hacked it down.

Looking around the group wondered where to go next and if they was any dangers lurking around?

The group chose their items and sold off what they had collected and relaxed for a few weeks before the Inverted Pyramid sent for them.

The guild had something for them, a Lich had sent an invitation seeing them as a group of outstanding reputation and challenged them to beat his labyrinth in return for riches undreamt of.

While they were considering what to make of this a plea was also heard from a Sage that his silver dragon friend had been kidnaped by a powerful Dragon King!

The group asked about both from the Guild and Sage before deciding they would rescue the silver dragon!

Boris has returned to the city by this point and the group sought his services to make for the area where the dragon kings were.

A few days later, Boris arrived at the location and dropped them off as near as he could get them, and the group found the air thin as they traveled up the mountain leading to their destination.

The cliff was vertical and would have been daunting even with the equipment provided by the sage but the group had invested previously in overcoming such obstacles.

The group eventually made out and opening in the mountain, the sage previous had said there was some guardian that watched over the entrance which used powerful anti-magic, but nothing prepared them for statues with floating heads, breathing fire and anti magic fields to boot!

Beorn jumped in before realising he was back in Gnome form again and the group were shocked when two of the statues bit big chunks out of them, the party grit their teeth and prepared for the fight to come….

The Dread One's Path

The group chose the helmets that suited themselves and used the Doomwalker to great effect. They took on Wyverns and a Red Dragon without much damage to themselves, even the evil angel which did a fair amount of damage did not slow they down for long before they ended it existence by turning it to mush through repeated bashing.

With their victory they found the remaining piece of the staff and took it to the dragon which destroyed it along with the key they had and said it would take a few days but the Banewarrens would be sealed.

Then he turned his attention to Grylls and Beorn, Grylls was a threat to the outside world and gave Beorn a choice of saving Grylls at a price or Beorn must mercy kill Grylls, Beorn wrestled with himself over the choice but decided Grylls was very important to him and paid the price, part of his life force was transferred to Grylls, while his Constitution was reduced he became more closely linked with his animal companion and the friendship they shared more evident.

Lyari teleported everyone out and took the news to the Church about their delvers which could not be raised, they did restore Ragnar's frame and offered services at a knockdown price but in the Church's eyes they had not succeeded.

On the other hand, the Inverted Pyramid were overjoyed that not only the Warrens would be sealed but a Magic item that the church was after, would remain sealed within, they were happy to give the party what was due to them and went as far as offering to cover part of the cost for an item if they wanted something better, the group looked on and considered what to get…

Ascension of the Baneheart
Log 54

The group met with the Silver dragon which turned out to be one of the architects of the Banewarrens and revealed he could repair and help seal the Banewarrens back up, but to do so they needed the Staff of Shards to destroy the Key they had and the sealing rod to re-activate the generators and the doors that were keyed to them. Beorn learnt Gryls was infected with a Bane disease from one of the rooms they had opened, the dragon told that there might be a way of saving him but it would take time to see if it was possible.

Since the dragon kept the room safe, the group rested up and proceeded further up the Baneheart shaft coming to the scene of battle which Khaine and Lyari had found before but not explored fully, they found a room which sucked Khaine's shadow from him when he made it enter the room before him, he was a little disturbed by this and decided not to enter the room, they also found some rags which were a primary source of evil.

Quick as a flash Lyari pointed the rod of wonder at it and shot a small fireball at it, from it, twelve Wraiths emerged and the group looked a tad fearful especially when Ragnar was leeched of his life force and looked advanced in his age.

Lyari saved them all with a bigger Fireball followed up with a Seek the Souless which ended the fight very quickly.

Ragnars wounds were advanced in nature and could not be restored easily, however the group chose to go on, esially since where the rags were they found the sealing rod.

Venturing forth they found an ornate room with 6 silvers helms on a table with a magical painting depicting a huge construct of a type they had never seen before, from this they learnt the helms controlled the construct and for them to retrieve the last part of the staff they needed, they would have tread the path of the Dread One by proxy using the construct to hand.

And so they started debating who should wear the helms of the construct; The Doomwalker…

The group thought about the plan, looked at themselves and decided to shelve the plan for the moment. They were needed to track down the Church delvers and had nothing to do with running away from fate.

With this in mind the group went through the mundane areas, they knew that the Delvers were opening any vault they came across no matter what lurked behind the doors.

Khaine came across a door that looked a bit battered but still held, Mungo had tried unsuccessfully to pick the the lock of the door last time but Khaine knew his trade and had the door open within a few seconds, Ragnar opened the door to find some skinless zombies/ghouls within, the battle was short and brutally one sided but nothing of value was within the room.

The group continued on and found some tracks which Beorn followed to a scene of brutal carnage; limbs, various body parts and torn armour were present in the room, the sight was so disturbing a few of the group vomited and passed out.

Examining the bodies reveal a gruesome fight took place here with many of bodies showing signs of being raped both when alive and dead. There were eight opened pods overhead and Lyari knew where they were, Dread Bone Devils, he told the group what horror happened here and the group were thankful they did not open this room.

Beorn used a Flaming Sphere to incinerate the bodies, only realising they were the Church Delvers when a holy symbol was revealed, still better them rest in peace, than be brought back and relive the nightmare they went through…..

Several doors had been tried but none were open, whether the Church delvers were responsible or someone else, remained to be seen.

The group re-entered a room they had not been able to traverse as Dench proved to be very 'inept' with disarming of traps, the group had slippers of spider climbing and walked around the traps.

The found a suit of possessed armour that wanted to be banished but only if the agreed to do it in a certain way, in exchange information would be passed to them, the group reluctantly agreed and banished him gaining a restored armour in the process in addition to the information and warnings.

The group carried on finding the evil Cleric in the chapel, but without his bodyguards he was easy to deal with and while they could not destroy him, they at least got him out of their way.

Ragnar could hear heavy breathing around the next corner and Khaine had a peek. A very large silver dragon was in the warding generator room and it looked distracted, since they had heard from Lyari that Metallic dragons were good, they thought making their introductions were needed, with that they strolled round the corner….

Time for a Bug Hunt...
Log 52

The group sold what they had and bought their better gear. During their buying the Guild wanted to talk with them about a proposition.

They wanted the group not to find the Sword of Lies sought by the church, they also specifically asked them not to remove it, after all it had been placed there for a reason, a reason that the group could not get an answer from the guild but the Guild would increase their reward upon the Banewarrens being sealed. They also offered a better reward for dispatching the Beholder.

The group considered their options and considering they had money and far more experience, they all decided to go after the Beholder, with that in mind they bought specific gear aimed towards protecting themselves against attacks and weapons that were well suited for the task.

It was going to be risky, but hey they had a plan this time…..

The group finished off the remaining monsters and waited for Lyari to blast the golem away, unfortunately Ragnar had other ideas and summoned his Lion, which promptly got sliced in two by said golem.

However the Lion delay the golem enough for Lyari to destroy it and the group looted what they could before descending down to the bottom.

With that Lyari teleported everyone back to the Inn where Lyari 'forgot' the size of his own room, got flattened by the dead Lion.

After they dragged their Wizard from under the Lion, they went to use the services of the Church of Lothian and brought Khaine back to life, Ragnar stayed on to oversee the Lion being brought back too while everyone else met up with Jevicca to sell her 'certain' items the Paladin was not aware of.

The group minus the paladin, went to the magic shop to flog all they possessed, they were at it for sometime……

A Damsel in Distress

The group was throwing everything they had left at the demon only for spells to bounce of while being flayed by chains.

The Demon grinned and the bridge unraveled sending Ragnar & Taklinn to plunge into the pit, while Kalam grabbed a chain, grimaced and fought on.

At this stage Khaine was trying fire spell after spell into the apparent spell immune demon, such was his focus he didn't realise the state of his wounds until he fell down dead from being flayed by dancing chains.

Kalam eventually managed to overcome the demon and sent it into the pit dead.

The group retrieved Khaine and placed him in the bag of holding and looted what was on the demon (while the Paladin was not looking).

The group rested after their ordeal, although Lyari did take a look at the next level which showed signs of an ancient battle.

They decided to descend so that they could recoup and go back the the city to re-supply (the generator was still active of this level making trips to the outside impossible.

Taklinn was pushed off the edge for a bit of fun as the group knew he had a ring of Feather Fall and waited for him to give the 'A ok' on the Golem level.

He did not see a Golem as he floated onto the bridge but almost jumped out of his beard when a young lady behind said hello.

She had been with someone when they adventured into the prison looking for wealth when they were attacked by werewolves. Taklinn ran a few spells over her but nothing seemed to be odd about her, when the rest of the group turned up. Ragnar gave her the once over and found nothing but did notice something behind her and went to investigate.

Suddenly the group were ambushed! The Lady became a spider another spider appeared next to Lyari and a Lizardfolk, Bugbear & Attacth came out of the Vrock's door.

While the group were locked in battle felling many of the enemies, Taklinn spotted the thing he was dreading to see, attracted by the sounds of battle, the golem!

Taklinn shouted a warning but only Lyari heeded it, getting into position to hit it with his prepared, Seek the Soulless, would the group survive the encounter?
