A week has passed since the strange disappearance of Lennaran’s Pedant, and the destruction of the local trolls who where once free to desecrate the peaceful shanty of Waveham.
Syk, a small creature of Phanaton decent, Svetlana, a mysterious magic wielder, and the rest of the party have all finally recovered from their previous battles and are in fit and fighting shape once more.
As the night turns to its darkest hour, a flash of pure whiteness and a crash of destructive proportions is not only seen, but heard and felt by all. The party awaken to investigate the cause of said interruption.
The smell of Say’toh ripe in the air…
After a long night of peaceful, uninterrupted sleep, a loud crash was heard from outside. The party, awoken from said crash, gathered their gear and left to investigate.
The town was alight with commotion, everyone having been disturbed by the events. A large gathering of concerned Townsfolk and Town Watch surrounded the old Furniture store which was seen to have a large charred hole in the roof. Upon looking higher, the shine of the moon reflected off multiple cracks in the dome. A very powerful force had pierced through the nigh-impenetrable dome.
The Town Watch were seen trying to open the door to the store front but were having no luck, a form of magical barrier was prevent access. It was only as Lennaran stood forward and attempted to open the door that the barrier was dispersed.
As the party entered, they saw the store keeper Assid and two figures standing before him, one in simple grey hooded robes with glowing orbs floating around him, and the other in black tattered robes. They appeared to be in the middle of a heated discussion. Assid was seen holding Lennaran’s Pendant in one hand with a hammer in the other, the two robed figures were interrogating him about how and where he acquired said Pendant.
As the party approached the duo, the black clocked man turned and blocked their path, asking the party in a somewhat confused and disgruntled tone, how they had managed to gain entry.
At this point the man in the grey cloak turned around, pulling back his friend, and revealed himself as an Angel of Hemannis having noticed the savior cleric Lennaran standing before him.
After some discussion it was discovered that the pair were both Angels. An Angel of Hemannis, Andir the Just, and an Angel of Oxfore, Lazarus the Rash. They had come to prevent the destruction of the sacred Pendant which Assid had obtained. During the interrogation on Assid that followed, the party also found that it was Svetlana (SURPRIZE) who had stolen it for Assid.
Just as the party was about to turn on Svetlana, they noticed Assid attempting to hide something in the corner of the room and upon investigation it emerged to be a Tablet to a Dragon Seal that was located beneath the town with two entrances to be found within the mining tunnels, the Angels to take one path, the party the other. The Angels also prevented the party from turning Svetlana in at this point due to the need for every able man and/or woman. It was discovered that the Angels could repair the Seal, as to stop the release of the next Dragon, but it would take time to do it properly as it uses their Divine life-force, something that is not easily used safely.
While about the leave, the party noticed Andir asking Assid to repent in order to save his soul, as Assid had Sinned greatly during his time alive. Assid refused and Andir turned to leave, at this point Lazarus walked up to Assid and placed his hand on Assid’s head. A faint grin was seen on Lazarus as Assid turned to a red dust, vaporizing from existence.
The party entered the mines only to find a large wooden door, which upon opening made a loud clicking noise, luckily nothing happened. The door opened to the underground catacombs of the town with a large room seen at the end of a corridor before them.
As the party entered the far room, a puzzle ensued.
(Puzzle irrelevant to plot so meh putting it in)
Due to Olaf’s new found literacy, the puzzle was completed. Yay Olaf.
A staircase emerged with a path leading downwards into another puzzle room.
(More puzzlely stuff)
And the party did it again, revealing a door at the back of the room previously hidden.
In the final room the party found the pedestal to the Dragon Seal. As they approached it a sound like someone clearing their throat as if to reveal their presence was heard from behind them.
It was Sain and The Inspector. They were accompanied by 4 heavily armor guards, assumed to be Mercenaries.
Sain walked closer to the party and begun to talk to Lennaran, shocked that he was standing before him. Sain tried to convince him that his cause was flawed, but Lennaran was unswayed. Syk, who had been breathing very heavily ever since seeing Sain, began frothing at the mouth and dropped his gear. His eyes were pure white as if he had been possessed by some form of rage and he lunged at Sain. Sain without hesitation backhanded Syk into a wall knocking him unconscious stating that Syk was a inconsequential rat. Sain drew his weapon and pointed it at the party asking them to move, even saying please in the process.
As Sain took a step forward a large shock wave, blew Sain, The Inspector and the Mercs to the ground, it was the Angels coming to save the day. Andir quickly cast a spell on Sain and The Inspector putting them in a momentary status, untouchable from any and all things. A fight ensued between the Mercs and the Angels/Party.
After wave after wave of Mercenary entered the room, the party finally triumphed, with Andir and Olaf severely bloodied, and Svetlana unconscious on the floor. Andir went over to try heal Svetlana quickly before their barrier on Sain and the-rogue-previously-known-as-dave dispersed.
Just as he attempted to cast his healing spell a blade emerged through his chest, it was Sain.
Andir using the last of his life-force temporarily repaired the Dragon Seal, Andir shone white and exploded in a flash of light.
Sain, having realized that nothing more could be done here for his cause, turned to leave the room, stating his gratitude to the Angels for breaking the Dome above Waveham and expressing his relief that Lennaran was still alive. He bid the party farewell and disappeared with The Inspector into the darkness.
Syk attempted to pursue Sain, but Lazarus stopped him. Lazarus, rather distraught at the death of his friend, knew Sain’s power and did not want any other valuable member to die tonight. Sain leaving them alive was a gift, something they should not throw away so readily.
As Syk’s breathing slowed down, Lazarus became enraged, he ran over to Svetlana who was still unconscious on the floor and began venting his rage at her, blaming her for everything that had happened here today. The party stood back as Lazarus held both his palms towards Svetlana’s body.
Unlike what had happened to Assid, this was much more violent. Svetlana began to convulse and shake on the ground, akin to having a seizure. She gradually glowed redder and redder until it was such a dark red it was almost black. At this point burst into violent red flames and rapidly vanished, leaving a charred silhouette of where she lay burnt into the ground. Her possessions were gone too.
Lazarus, once again calm, turned and begun to walk out, only stopping at the doorway and turning to throw the Sacred Pendant onto the ground before Lennaran. He warned the party that they should be more careful as to who they trust, in this day and age, your greatest enemy may be closer than you think. Lazarus turned once more and began to walk out, just as members of the Town Watch came running past to tend to the parties wounds.
