DnD Encounters: The Elder Elemental Eye, Firefly Games Lexington SC
Visions of Doom (Week 5)
Having bypassed the traps and wards, the heroes finally enter the Sunset Shrine. The descent is steep and dark. Once they reach the bottom, they find they were expected. Azryg and Zarnak are waiting. Zarnak, safely behind a barred portcullis, tells the party their coming was fortold and now they die. Azryg with fists blazing leads the charge. Both Sabrak dwarves and norker goblins stream into the shrine to attack the party. During the middle of battle, Arzyg transforms into a giant fire elemental but is slain. As he is slain Zarnak swears the party’s death will not be pleasant. He then pulls a lever dropping a slab of stone to separate the party from him and the rest of the dungeon. Once the rest of the dwarves are dispatched, the heroes hear a call for help from one of the corridors off the main area of the shrine. They find this area contains some cells. In one is Malgrym. He explains that he was to ba a sacrifice to the amorphous one who takes to forn of a great altar further in the shrine. He also says he saw Zarnak stirring a red fluid flecked with gold in something he calls the black cyst. After spealing with Malgrym, the heroes continue to explore the dungeon. They find a chapel to the amorphous one, a torture chamber and a damaged study. Within the study, they find a healing potion and a glaive enchanted with elemental magic.
