With our heroes finishing the test for the Empire to prove their worth. Tahir, Tahad’s borther said that he would be with the empire and also try to find more of their people that fled Castamere to Airalon.
With Tahir gone the Paladins offered the assistance of Ghazkull, the Half Orc Cleric that was freed from slavery. Thanks to the empire he had won his freedom and upon hearing the turmoil of Airalon and the other areas would be in danger of the three (3) warlords. So he agreed to help and possiblly free anyone or anything upon this quest.
The three (3) paladins sent them off and asked that they head to the city of Dimfall. It was a trading location with Airalon and the other locations and held many items and information of the surrounding locations. They agreed and headed to Dimfall where they saw the city had many houses and buildings.
They decided to split up to get some information different methods. Tahad decided to go to the Brothal learning that they share a lot of info bcause a talkative drunk and many pretty women loosens a lot of lips more ones then one. Ghazkull went to the slums to see if he could get info or to try to join their ranks with an army. The others went to the library to learn more about the warlords and the locations they live in.
They all learned a great deal but Ghazkull was the most fortunate. He found a man name James Falcon who was a veteran of Airalon but came to Dimfall to establish a trade and also try to raise a malitia. As they talked Ghazkull learned of ruins below Dimfall saying that a shadowly figure visited the ruins often to learn what secrets was there. As for the purpose he did not know but now the ruins was considered off limits because all that ventured in did not come out ever again.
Ghazkull said he would investigate it with his company and James Falcon said he would be at the enteranceway to the Ruins waiting for him. After the group met up they exchanged information and upon hearing of the ruins they decided to investigate. Heading to the ruins James Falcon was there and showed them the enteranceway as he told them to be careful.
They entered seeing many cobwebs and very faint foot steps that have been there for months. As they walked they came to a room seeing the webs were everywhere. But the burned them away as they came to the room but Ghazkull was hearing a whisper calling to him, asking for help.
He walked to the door and continued to listen as the others were afraid of a trap being triggered. He finally opened the door as a huge rush of mist came in blowing them all but nothing happend as they came to a room with ruins on the walls and the voice calling to him was in a chest. Upon investigation the chest was sealed with magic as if trying to keep it locked away. Also another chest was found with just a robe within.
For the moment they read the walls and continued onward. Clearing the area and also seeing bones of former adventurers that braved this place only to be killed and fed upon by spiders.
They continued on and fought against Giant Spiders and their leader, a Giant Black Widow Spider. Killing the beasts and recovering before they continued on. Once they continued the webs seemed to stop and only rubble remained. Seeing a room of Gargoyle Statues they were concerned. Tahad thinking this was going to be a trap runs in screaming at the top of his lungs and nothing happened. Once again he was fool…
They continued to see the ruins on the walls and saw more writing. They got closer and one of the Gargoyles moves seeming to wake up as he looked at them all. Upon conversations they read the walls learning more about the past of the warlords and also knowing of something that happened in the past. Mostly all that was referred was “she” and “keys”.
They kept talking to the Gargoyle and got very little out of him but soon Ghazkull was fed up and asked what they were keeping trapped in a chest. The Gargoyle was enraged and yelled that it was what defeated his mistress. Soon a battle ensued and the heroes were triumphet. Khamisi the Wise was the most effective as he went full out against one Gargoyle breaking him into thousands of pieces after he did a powerful flury of blows.
Once the Gargoyles were defeated then saw a staircase heading down where a huge stone slab and 4 openings upon the ground was placed. The Heroes were still puzzled as to what the Ruins represented but something more sinister was afoot. Ghazkull however tracked back and saw the chest and opened it seeing an amulet. As he held it he had a vision but the images were very quick but he saw 4 swords and the last image was a man clocked in black looked at him with his glowing red eyes and his face was just nothing but a White Skull.
