After a short rest, Old Man and Ted are on watch as the group rests. They suddenly hear a groaning noise in the distance. Old Man goes to investigate, only to discover louder groaning, and determines that it is coming from multiple sources behind a door.
He hurries back to the group to alert them. Sasha jumps up and turns herself invisible. She then runs off to investigate in stealth. Lord Prescott The Ghost goes through to door to scout out the groaning to discover 10 zombies, ghouls, and an undead master. The group battles the undead horde, until finally the master is beaten by Astrid with a MAX DAMAGE Guiding Light.
The group ventures further into the temple depths and comes across a room with a locked door. Lord Prescott The Ghost flies through the door to discover a gelatinous cube. Unable to open the door, the group moves on down the hall. They come across an immense room, surrounded by balconies overlooking a central altar. In the center of the circlular altar, Swara Finnedor, the temple matron at Carrunir’s Temple of Freya.
Swara is chanting in the center of a green dome, which is surrounding the altar. There are 4 skeletons surrounding and guarding the green dome. The group moves in and tries multiple times to infiltrate the green dome, to stop Swara from finishing her spell. Unfortunately, the dome is impenetrable. After the gang takes out 2 of the 4 skeletons, Swara is able to complete her summoning. Suddenly, a large zombie dragon appears near them. Within a few minutes, the dragon spews acid from its mouth, injuring several members of the group.
After a long and brutal battle, Swara approaches the dragon for unknown reasons. The dragon is not amused by this and slaughters Swara. This distraction allows Ted to finally slay the zombie dragon. After trying to decipher the text on both Swara’s body and around the altar, the group finds a puzzle ball. What will come when they solve the puzzle ball? Find out next time!
