Klotonk figures out how to take the power gem.
Erdan can’t figure out how the gate works, it seems to work differently than he’s used to. It seems like he needs a specific knock spell to open the gate. It’s a gate that Erdan has never encountered before. He can figure out that it does not lead to the far realms .
Derek harvests the Beholder.
Xillali doesn’t’ really see anything. The storm is crackling pretty badly right now in the Storm Drouss.
Doki resists the temptation to grab the gem and run off with it.
As we travel we see a trees part way revealing a black ship. A giant orc jumps off.
He wants to trade. Sees the power gem, offers 7K gp for it.
Klotonk asks what would he would want a power gem for?
He smiles, looks at Doki and Xillali, smiling, for tomb of horrors, it needs more power. Big goblin boss asks for more power, so we want more power. The boss is named Sme, who Klotonk hates.
Klotonk wants to sell his blueprints. The Orc doesn’t know what to offer, so he wakens the drow on the ship. She recognizes us, we saved her in the storm drouss.
Sme left for medusalong. She can take Klotonk into Low Fort, but can’t take anyone else. She tells us that Low Fort is over crowded. The assumption is that the head Orc is dead or fled. So now the Drow are in charge of Low Fort. She’s headed south to do trading. Yarow is the name of the drow.
If we kill the Black Dragon, bring it’s head to low fort, they’ll lower the reward on your head and give you a reward instead.
They give us a ride to the edge of Storm Drouss. We cannot make the center of the storm drouss by night fall.
In the morning, we noticed that doki aged another 30 years. Again.
We see a clearing ahead, Bahamuts temple seems to have been collapsed upon itself. In front of this temple there is a cairn, it’s a mound of stone. Someone has stuck a large shield. The shield itself is a sign of Tiamat.
The same place that the cairn is located is where the dead body was located.
Xilalli summons an earth elemental, and changes into an earth elemental. She’s trying to get to the center of the temple to get to the lair of the black dragon.
Klotonk wants to re-animate the skeleton, Dimitri convinces him it’s a bad idea.
Xialli and Earth Elemental take stairs all the way down.
It looks like something has pretty much collapsed the entire area.
How did you die?
“My ring didn’t work. It was supposed to help me”
Notice the corpse was pretty charred.
Where is Tiamat’s power strongest in this area?
“You should Seek Munari of the Ebone Wing”
What do you know about the Black Dragon Mask
“Investigating rumor that Munari has it”
Who else was on the trail of the mask?
“Timony the Illuminated, Knife and Dagger (inculaban)”
Timony is low level Tiamant cultist, he’s interested in books/knowledge. He has an eye that moves around.
How were you planning to get your hands on the mask when you found it?
“Just needed to confirm it was here”
What information did you gather about the mask
“Many rumours abound about the mask and their locations. Tracking rumour that black dragon mask was being held in A temple of bahamut, but there are no active bahamut temples. So he went to check old bahamut temples that are no longer maintained. He thought it was odd, that Munari’s lair was so close to the temple, and she’s a black dragon so I came to investigate.”
Party heads towards Munari’s fort. There are no longer any more trees in this area. See a cave mouth, sitting in front of the cave mouth is a table and a woman in a nice black flowy robes, she’s sitting at the table. In Front of her is a Tiamat Knight minding his own business. There is a reptilian shaman guy in rags.
She immediately looks over at Xilllali, “princess”
She walks over with a limp.
“I am cross with you. What did you do to my trees?”
“How did bayaga’s daughter wind up here?”
“From someone who keeps asking all these questions, you seem to know all the answers” snips Klotonk
“That’s very smart of you, I know who you are”
“I know how you’ll make it up for me, maybe a month of your time”
She holds up small bag, she throws out a little animal. Boris falls dead. They cursed her bag of tricks.
The knight in the back laughs so hard, he shoots acid out of his hand. Timony will be here soon, with a lesser princess.
“What do you know about the floating island of Mecalin”
“Why do you ask that question? Any information I may have will be outdated”
“Primus is living right there, is there anything you plan to do about it?”
“That’s above your paygrade. Xilalli, I’m running out of patience”
Xilalli agrees to get drained in a day, not on a month.
Derek trades beholder junk and vampire blood for 2 drops of dragon blood.
