Bris , Corik, Durgen and Eando are now faced with a terrible foe, the headless lord and his cohorts attack with controlled power, the fight is a long and brutal affair , but they again defeat another of Mokmurians necromantic creations . Moving on they find a secret door , following an old dusty corridor it leads them to another room.
This twenty-foot-square room is shaped almost like a silo-its ceiling arches up to a vaulted height of one hundred feet.
They try and sneak past a pair of huge metal spiders , but alas it fails and they fight but not without taking injury , Eando opens the door and see a light in the distance, then he sees a small child with doll and glowing eyes , Bris next to eando says “shining Child” close the door ,Quick! Corik is now being pushed on his healing from Saranrae, and Bris starts to help with healing . The fights seem to be draining the characters in their search for mokmurian. After defeating the spider creatures , Eando finds himself in a sticky situation , as while looking under a door his head freezes , Bris helps out the famous rogue , as they have a running battle with this small creature. Which takes them into the next corridor.
This long hallway has a looming ceiling forty feet above and is decorated with an intricate display of stone supports and beams. The walls are carved in long swaths of densely scribed runes-the seven-pointed star is repeated often. To the east, the hallway has caved in entirely-a battered door protrudes from the rubble, but the hall beyond is completely filled with detritus. To the west, the hall ends at an immense bronze double door that bears a huge mirror like silver inlay of the ubiquitous seven pointed star. This set of doors has no obvious hinges, handles, or locks, save for a single tiny star-shaped indention at the center of the larger mirrored star.
The door is inaccessible , Eando tries everything he knows, Durgen sticks his blade in the door , on to summon a shining child which shoots him with a bolt of energy , then Eando remember the password “Viosanxin” and the door opens .
Numerous glowing crystal lanterns hang o n fine chains from the domed ceiling sixty feet above, filling this circular room with bright light. The walls of the room are carved with more runes and sigils, while overstuffed wood-and-leather chairs and polished oak tables surround a thirty-foot wide shaft in the floor.
One remnant from Thassilon remains “alive” in this chamber-a curious clockwork creature built by the wizard-monks to serve as a caretaker, sorter, and assistant for those who wished to use the library. The clockwork librarian clatters and smokes to life when it notices any newcomers entering the room and hobbles over to greet them in an ungainly lurch (one of its three legs doesn’t quite work right any more).
It addresses the newcomers in Thassilonian, asking, “Which volume of lore would you like me to retrieve for you? There are currently 2 4 , 491 volumes , scrolls, pamphlets , and unbound manuscripts available. Please indicate your wish by author, title, subject, or date of acquisition by the Therassic Monastery.”
There is months and months of research here , even maybe years !
They answer Runelords but the thing doesn’t move .
Choosing to move on the make it to the next room, without peril.
This strange, empty room has been smoothed over to an even greater extent than the other chambers in this complex-every angle of the walls has been modified into a gentle arc, removing any element of harsh regular lines entirely from view. Patches of what appear to be scorch marks stain the walls and floors here and there, especially to the south, where part of the wall has fallen away.
As each of the characters enter they each receive a slashing attack from a weird looking creature, not quite demon or hound , but a mixture , and an ancient diabolical aura emanates , but with the power of saranrae behind them , a horrible and brutal fight , leaves our characters close to the edge , with healing done , the last room much hold mokmurian , they hear a rumbling and the whole structure shakes , what diabolical plan has Mokmurian.
They hear his voice almost distant… “Conna ! how could you do this to me ? , The lord will not be happy …” then something snaps in him “I shall kill these humans for the lord , he shall return and rule this pox ridden land !”
With a snarl he shouts “ Arise My minions , let us take care of these intruders! Let them know the power of …..Mokmurian “
