With an almighty THuuuuMMPPP , a dark figure lands not 10 feet from Eando Kline , everyone within 100 feet are thrown to the ground, a hooded figure , kneels in the crater, his fist extended ! Purple smoke seeps from the cloak and the crater. Thunder Cracks over head, and everything is still for a minute as no one moves.
In the corridor, runes begin to glow, as a strong magic starts to fill the chamber, the light in the runes growing brighter and brighter .
You see the Man stand and draws back his hood, he staggers for a second, but regains his balance.
Bris turns to the prone Corik “I have lost much of what happened with the Drow, but I do know this, from what I have seen and the places I have been, it is imperative we find out how this rune forge works , the knowledge in here will be invaluable , for the final fight” he continues “Saranrae has guided me , we must finish this !”
Slowly Corik speak s, as a huge change has came over Bris, his eyes have turned a bright purple , his hair as white snow, he looks to be in his late teens . “Yes, my brother, may Saranrae guide us “but “your eyes , your face “ he gets up slowly “You are changed my friend “
“What of Durgen and Rizzen “asks Kolbi, eyeing the inquisitor suspiciously.
Bris shakes his head “Lost …..” he pauses “I remember little, but I know this, this Rune lord must be beaten or it is the end to everything as we know!”
Flipping to his feet , Eando taps bris on the shoulder “ I don’t like to break up this happy reunion , but” he motions over his shoulder “ you seem to have brought something with you, and seem to have woken our 2 guardian Friends “ he sighs “ ah well , its up to Eando Kline to save the day “
Bris, Kolbi and Corik turn to see a bloated mass filled with teeth, and 2 huge elemental guardians, behind it, the creature slobbers and snarls in an ancient guttural language , it makes its way ,slug like towards you !
“I think not master thief, “says as Kolbi hefting his axe charges ahead, screaming “DRAAANGGGVITT”
Corik looks at Bris and nods “It is good to see you back my friend “, this has been a long journey “it’s time to see it to its conclusion “.
“Kialla ay EL “ he shouts . as his scimitar bursts into flame .
The creature is huge an abomination of lamia and warp magic. At the start of the fight it looks a bit scary , but by tactics they overcome the creature .
Finding their way past the guardians using sihedron rune trickery the look down a large hole.
The walls of this cavern glitter and sparkle with sheets of ice. Seven twenty-foot-tall pillars, their sides encrusted with ice and engraved with ancient glyphs and runes, surround an eighth pillar twice the size. Tunnels exit the central cavern, winding deeper into the mountain. Yet perhaps the most notable feature is the sparkling mound of coins,
works of art, gemstones, jewellery, weapons, armour, and other things poking up from the pile that occupies the north-western section of the cavern.
Looting the treasure , its now time to work out the statues !
