The adventurers dove into the Aquaportal and swam thirty feet to another pool which was occupied by a boat. Emerging from the water, they found a pyramid identical to the one they had left and a group of villains atop it trying to sacrifice a Gnome to a Green Dragon circling overhead.

Saving Zip from Tabaxi pirates.

After dispatching the bad guys and driving off the dragon, the party met Zippideedoodah Dibbler, Tinker Gnome Artificer from the Skyrealms who, like them, was also on the search for the Sphinx of Baxia until he was double crossed by the men who brought him here.

The next day, Zip joined the party and, following a map on the villains’ boat which showed the locations of portals to nearly two dozen other planes of existence, the Gnome was able to pilot the craft into the sky, sailing for the Aerie of the Sphinx in the southern mountains. Attacks by Griffons and a Liondrake welcomed them, but they soon spotted the stairs they needed to climb to the peak of the mountain, forever shrouded in clouds.
