As Kazadar prays, the others feel a strange mental phenomenon. Sadly, it isn't their spirits being uplifted by the Sovereign Host. The familiar mental voice of their mindflayer acquaintance insinuates itself through their brains like questing tentacles probing out weaknesses.

Greetings! Are you all receiving my transmission? I must say, it hasn't been easy to find you - there seem to be a number of magical barriers against this sort of thing and I might be cut off at any moment. I'm certainly gratified that at least some of you appear to be still be alive - even Gelb! Is this is a convenient moment?


Male Human Ranger 7/Eldeen ranger (Gatekeeper) 5

Yeah, even him. "Uh, I guess this is as good a time as any other."


Excellent! The surgery on your companion Rolund has entered a most interesting phase. However, he apparently wishes Father Xativa to hear his confession before we continue - a somewhat surprising development, I'm sure we can all agree. Unfortunately this is a most sensitive stage in the process, and any delay could cause him permanent damage, but he is being quite obdurate - as one might expect. Is Father Xativa available? If we complete his confession expeditiously then I can continue with the procedure and resolve the damage done to him.

Rodergo sits up a little straighter as he listens to the mindflayer's message. "I am... stunned. If such a stick-in-the-mud as Rolund actually desires my spiritual advice, grand developments must be afoot. I fear that I must answer this call, inconvenient as it might be."

He stands up and starts gathering his things. "Could we please travel as a group to the surface? Time might be of the essence, and I need to get there safely."


Nevharath speaks up. "I can accompany Rodergo to the surface and to the lair of the mindflayer. Someone with an understanding of the psionic arts may also help keep him from harm."

If you all go back up, you are likely to have to fight your way back in again. It's up to you.

"It is surprising, as you say. Link us to Rolund so that we know he is still alive and the request is genuine."


This isn't really something I can just pass around. It requires immense.... just to.... Hello, can you...?

The connection fizzles out.


Male Human Cleric 6/ Exorcist of the Silver Flame 6

Rodergo nods gravely at Nevharath's offer. "That is probably the best solution. Farewell for now, friends, and give my regards to Gath." Shouldering their packs, the kalashtar and the priest wander down the gloomy corridor, quickly disappearing from view.

I primarily suggested it to give Nevharath an 'in' to leave too. So, no, I don't really think we should leave.


Male Human Ranger 7/Eldeen ranger (Gatekeeper) 5

Janosz is clearly unhappy as he watches Rod and his bodyguard depart. "That had better be real. If it is a trick I'll hunt the mindflayer all the way to the ends of the world. I'll make him watch as I cut his squirming tentacles off his face and deep-fry them and eat them with garlic and butter before I kill him and every last of his followers."


Male Kalashtar Psychic Warrior 6 / War Mind 5

Nevharath readies his weapon and manifests a few powers, extremely wary of their egress. He leads the way.

Gil watches them go, a thoughtful look on her face.


Dwarf Fighter 1 / Cleric 8 / Sovereign Speaker 3

"... and bright may the light of Dol Arrah shine upon the wickedness that haunts these ancient depths..."


Male Human Ranger 7/Eldeen ranger (Gatekeeper) 5

"Aw, f%!~ it." Glancing at the praying cleric, Janosz sits down in a corner and sinks into a meditative state.

I'll fill up my 2nd level spell slot with Wind wall.


Before Rodergo heads off, he hands over a stack of wands. "You may need these."

Assume Rod has handed his wands of Cure Light Wounds over.

After a while, Kazadar completes his prayers.

Ready to go on?


Male Human Ranger 7/Eldeen ranger (Gatekeeper) 5

I forgot about the wands. I'll take them for now.


70/70 hp; Effects: None; 120915 xp after Manfred

Gil can use them in a pinch. I haven't looked at Gelb's UMD bonus, but he probably can, too. Gil's ready to proceed.

After Rodergo and Nevharath leave Ezreal wonders, "What do you think are the chances he cut the connection on purpose?" He shrugs and pulls a spellbook from his bag flipping it open. "In any case with the kalashtar gone, I feel slightly more at ease. I find them alien- inhuman and cannot comprehend what their end goal might be in all of this." He pointedly looks at Gelb, "And that is saying something in a group of two changelings, one of whom is working for a mind flayer, and cleric who we randomly found in a dungeon full of dead things designed to teach us the inevitability of our doom."

The mage sits down in a corner with his book open on his lap and begins running through a couple of spells in his book repeating the lines over and over in his mind to build up the arcane reservoir to power those spells.

Ez will prep his new slots: (15 minutes)
-Summon Monster VI
-Overland Flight


Dwarf Fighter 1 / Cleric 8 / Sovereign Speaker 3

Kazadar stands up, and places his helmet on, covering the last bit of visible dwarf that remained. Strapping on a heavy shield and picking up his warhammer, he looks to the group.

"Thank you lot for saving me. Have you checked the other cells? I have some companions that were captured."


You haven't been through all of the cells yet.


70/70 hp; Effects: None; 120915 xp after Manfred

Gil gestures to Ezreal. "We haven't, but we have a moment while he continues his studies. Come, let us check for your allies." She looks at the others, "Someone should keep an eye on him," gesturing at Ezreal, "but I won't turn down any company."


Male Human Ranger 7/Eldeen ranger (Gatekeeper) 5

"Take Gelb with you. I'll stay with Ezreal."

"Hell, maybe some of Gaia Sotharr's old buddies are here."


Dwarf Fighter 1 / Cleric 8 / Sovereign Speaker 3

"There was a female Karrn, and a male dwarf. Captured. And an elf mercenary mage, dunno where that sod got off to."


70/70 hp; Effects: None; 120915 xp after Manfred

Gil give him an appraising look. "How did you get captured? What kind of shape were they in when you saw them last?"


Dwarf Fighter 1 / Cleric 8 / Sovereign Speaker 3

"I was captured by a trap that separated us. They were much the same condition as i was, but anything could have happened, my state when you found me was far removed from what it was when i was captured."


HPs: 89/88, APs: 10/10 Effects: See Invisible, Magic Circle Against Evil, Mage Armor, Fly Karnnathi Wizard (Universalist) 12

He prayed for an hour. I only needed 15 minutes. The plan was to spend my 15 minutes within his hour, not start once he finished :P
Let's go!


HPs: 89/88, APs: 10/10 Effects: See Invisible, Magic Circle Against Evil, Mage Armor, Fly Karnnathi Wizard (Universalist) 12

Ezreal flips his book closed once the others seem ready to go and stands while stowing it in his pack. "I believe she means who stripped your gear and locked you in a cell?"


Dwarf Fighter 1 / Cleric 8 / Sovereign Speaker 3

"I didn't see my assailant, one minute i was trying to figure my way out of the trap; the next moment, i was chained in this cell."


70/70 hp; Effects: None; 120915 xp after Manfred

Yes, I didn't add it all up, Ez. Let's go!


Male Human Ranger 7/Eldeen ranger (Gatekeeper) 5

As the other party members start getting up, Janosz climbs to his feet. Nodding to the cell-searchers, he pads quietly down the corridor, bow at the ready.


None of the other cells seem to be occupied. Eventually the corridor comes to an end at a stone door. The door is carved with a relief of a enormous dragon destroying a large city with its fiery breath.

Knowledge (Religion), DC 25:

Spoiler:
The picture is a representation of the Keeper in its manifestation as the Fiery Scourge, an avatar of random, violent and pitiless death and destruction.


Dwarf Fighter 1 / Cleric 8 / Sovereign Speaker 3

religion: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (18) + 16 = 34

"Ah, no grand temple to the Keeper would be without this imagery. Fiery Scourge, the Keeper's supposed draconic avatar. Random, violent, pitiless death and all that. If you ask me, the Keeper cults are just trying to borrow imagery from Dol Arrah."
