A Dungeon and a Dragon
October 21, 2023
Just as the party was leaving the dungeon, Villitch disappeared in the blink of an eye. With these random vanishings haunting the party, they were already on edge when they found the body of the chimera they had fought earlier now laying dead, apparently finished off by an Elf Rogue named Akram who stood by his kill. He had followed them here from Pelifree to warn them that Meddevin could not be trusted.
According to the Elf, the urn Meddevin had sent them to find in the dungeon belonged to a Lich named Bahrentoht who is also the secret power behind the throne of Alamayne. Whatever dangers they had faced thus far, worse was surely in store and they decided that, without their best fighter, they were better off abandoning the quest.
The party opted to return to their original map-quest for the Crown of Kings, but first they made their way to Clamorine, home skyland of Gilbert who was welcomed home by his family while the rest of the adventurers stayed at Glower’s Pastry House, the best tavern in town.
When they departed on their magical flying carpet, the heroes descended to Lake Lamora in the center of the island kingdom, heading for Merytol’s Abbey when they were hit by a Green Dragon whose flyby attack succeeded in sweeping the carpet out from under their feet. Each of them activated their feather fall tokens to avoid freefalling but that only made them easy prey for the Dragon as it kept up its attacks.
The adventurers were scattered when they finally landed, with Gilbert locked in combat with the Dragon until it finally subdued him. Rosetta ran to his aid but arrived too late to do anything but defend herself and was ultimately taken down as well.
By the time Akram and Nihl reached the scene of the crime, it was late afternoon and the Dragon was gone along with their two comrades. Instead, they had to do battle with an Ettin and its Worg companion. After that, they did their best to track the Dragon but lost the trail and instead made for the ruins of the shattered citadel that once stood on the island’s highest hilltop to get a better view of the surrounding area.
