NOVEMBER 4, 2023
At the edge of the ruins of the razed citadel of Merytol’s Abbey, Akram and Nihl were suddenly joined by Villitch, reappearing out of thin air as if the past five days had never passed. Nihl introduced him to Akram and he was soon informed of all the developments in his absence and their current need to rescue Gilbert and Rosetta from the wounded Green Dragon.
Together, the trio found the cave entrance to the dragon’s lair where they had to fight an Assassin Vine and a Troll before entering the warren-like tunnels. When Villitch fell into a spiked pit trap, Akram and Nihl realized the Dragon was right behind them and they barely avoided its deadly breath weapon which Villitch, flying up from the pit, was immune to. Wounded and outnumbered, the Dragon was soon slain and the adventurers searched on.
In the hoard chamber where the dragon’s wealth was guarded by a Mimic, they found Rosetta and a few Gnome-sized bones. Gilbert had been eaten by the Dragon he had inflicted so much damage upon, but Rosetta still lived and was saved by the party. After taking stock of the treasure, they rested.
Among the coins and gems were a number of art objects devoted to the glory of Gazafeira, the Dragon they had slain. Apparently, the nearby city of Mogretz – capital of the kingdom and the theocracy – is engaged in some form of dragon-worship. Rather hypocritical of a religion bent on wiping out all others in the name of Deem.
The next day, the party investigated the blasted ruins of the citadel and took up a position on the last standing wall to wait for night to fall and the ghost of Sir Adam to come out. They were confronted by the headless former paladin and two ghosts. Villitch boldly made straight for Sir Adam, grappling the body and planting the skull between the shoulders. As prophesied by the party’s quest-map, the ghost of Sir Adam was instantly put to rest and he and the other two spirits vanished, leaving behind only the fabled Dragonslayer Spear.
With the weapon in hand, they were now ready to find Zovatora the Red Dragon and slay it to win the Crown of Kings from its hoard.
