The party camped in the Antechamber with their guide from among the Pious of the Light, Lurup. The next morning, they decided to check out the left-hand door to the south from the Antechamber. Gazal fell in a pit trap, and Tamash used burning hands both to clear away the roots and heal Gazal.
The party then found and looted the hidden reliquary, including the chasse containing Oil of Slaying, 3 flasks of holy water of the Carnifex, and a cumdach containing the Grimoire Nex. Beneath the chasse they also found the Shawl Silenti, which was donned by Gazal.
The party next wanted to check out the right-hand door, the “Oubliette of Luthold the Mad,” but Lurup told them it was forbidden. So Domnos used a sleep spell on Lurup and Amethyst erased his memory of the whole thing. Meanwhile, they did visit Luthold the Mad, who was pretty useless to the party despite being victim to Aric’s lotus stare.
Later, Lurup led the party to the Grotto of the Worm, where Aric used the lotus stare to use Lurup to help destroy the jewels of the carnifex (losing lots of fingers in the process!). The party looted lots of treasures that had belonged to the Carnifex cult and which had been kept by the Pious of the Light.
Finally, the party faced Azazel of the Light and his “Pious of the Light” followers. Tamash used the War Horn of Elfland to summon fey troops to fight the Pious. They destroyed the Pious and then went home.
Game Date: 4/17/3200 E.C. to 4/24/3200 E.C.
The wizards, elf, and cleric in the party had time to study the Grimoire Nex at their leisure and learn the secrets of summoning the powers of death . . .
