The World of Yaundae 3.5

WOY - July13th

Here be lots o' things

Returning to Moria under the Mountain, and Bolthin feeling the chill in his soul of being touched by the undead, a question was put to the temple of Kilea. From what the doughty dwarves had seen it was determined to be a dread wraith. it was decided that the bit of treasure was well worth being able to escape the frightful being
.
.
After relaxing and training and doing various other activities the group of adventurers gathered again and decided to finish the area that they had been directed to by the Sages of Deep Lore. Preparing once again to descend into the depths the party gathered themselves and the next day descended the depths to the station of Dwarven Gaurds and the gate was unlocked.
.
.
There was no gelatinous cube waiting for them so they carefully searched the room and then moved into the adjoining corridors. as they travelled into a 10’ corridor a rat swarm came charging at them but proved to be of little menace and was quickly dispatched. Moving up the corridor and into a few turns the party was then assailed by a rust monster. Though it caused a few moments of panic it was over come by throwing axes and bludgeoning it to death.
.
.
Moving further along the corridor and entering at the South end of a large round chamber which consisted of stone seats and 14 figures scattered about the room. The room was filled with a 20’ diameter pillar of fire that reached up past the ceiling. Looking and at first glance not seeing anything moving, Torbere and Gryant moved into the room. Behind the corner of the passage there was a six legged lizard like beast.
.
.
It was a basilisk. Flailing about and stomping its six short legs it attacked the party, biting and trying to get the dwarves to look at its eyes. The battle waged back and forth and when Gryants shield arm weighed heavy and slipped he met the gaze of the basilisk straight into its eyes… and turned to stone. Torbere finished off the creature but Gryant was a dwarf statue. The basilish had little treasure but in the room the stone forms were worth investigating.
.
.
After searching each one, there was one that was determined to be an elf. Others were duergar and troglodytes. Being in no further danger the party set about the task of getting Gryant back to the surface to purchase a stone to flesh spell to remove his predicament. As the party was lifting and dragging Gryant, 2 fire dwarves stepped out of the pillar of fire. The dwarf party hailed them and they started speaking.

It turns out that this was once a portal that connected to the elemental planes. It had been long abandoned because of the family of basilisks that had moved into the chamber from the adjoining caverns. After many attempts to drive them out the Azir decided to close the portal until such time as it could be safely used again. Time passed. The are that once was rich in gem deposits continued to attract many of the races in the under deep and each left its mark in the fire pillar room.
.
.
Even the grey elves had sent party 500 years ago that had failed to return and was considered lost. Until the Moody Moria dwarves delved deep and found an entrance to this chamber. The Azir made an attempt with fire brew to return Gryant to flesh and it failed. They took him back to their plane where they could restore him to his health. It was determined that the elf would be taken back to the surface to be restored where he was. A much grateful Elradsae gave the dwarf party his thanks and offered to have them journey with him when he returns home.
.
.
In the meant time the Azir were welcomed in the Moria Great Hall and the King and his brother provied a fiery feast to welcome the Azir and talks began about establishing new relations. The Azir thank each and every dwarf in the party by giving them each 2 emeralds that are worth 2000 zachs each. It was a great time for feasting and making merry. The kings brother seemed to pay particular attention to each member in the party.
.
.
After a day of fetting the Azir the party decides to descend into the depths again. Down the flight of stairs and then the party was assailed by a shadow mastiff and barghests. Fighting those off the party then ran into hungry Xorn. Torbere threw gold at the xorn and they happily ate. The xorn then moved on and it was decided to return to the surface as the barghests were no were to be found.

Experience for each party member was 1758 xp.

Each party member received 2 Emeralds Z 2000
