Part 6

Bakarus asks, "A barrier?"

Dayzed deeply says, "We have to destroy the anchor."

Mohrgan assures, "We'll press on, and do our best, then."

Bakarus blinks.

Roelon deeply says, "We need to find this anchor.."

Gespry nods.

Randsford asks, "And what part is that exactly?"

Ragz says, "Oh well there she goes."

Gespry melodically says, "Find it and destroy it."

Falvicar points at Bakarus.

Roelon nods at Dayzed.

Roelon just moved quietly east, with his group following closely.

[Secret Tunnel, Dead End]

Grit swirls in the air, tossed by a whistling breeze that howls shrilly through a breach in the red stone wall to the east. Flaking and ancient, paintings on the walls depict warlike figures in once-bright colors. The wind is not quite enough to dispel the tang stale mead lingering in the area. You also see a withered shadow-cloaked draugr. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Jiarine, Daiyon, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Hoy, Zhagen, Roelon, Commander Roblar who is lying down Obvious exits: west


Talliver says, "It would be nice to know what the anchor looked like."

Bakarus says, "This is a trap."

Dayzed deeply says, "Through the wall."

Ragz says, "It's a trapdoor, for sure."

Mohrgan simply says, "We'll have to keep eyes open."

Roelon deeply asks, "Trap? fir who?"

Bakarus says, "Several of us saw a barrier in a vision earlier in the Tavern."

Roelon just slipped quietly through a breached red stone wall, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Pits of the Dead]

Craggy debris strewn across the path appears to have spilled from a breached red stone wall to the west. The rush of wind through the pits solicits a ceaseless low moan from the breach that rebounds in the distance as a melancholic echo. Paintings adorn the walls as high as the eye can see, depicting scenes of brutal triumph that likely provided little comfort to the resultant dead. You also see a massive snowy white tiger. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Daiyon, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Hoy, Zhagen, Roelon Obvious exits: north, south

Bakarus says, "It was a mocking vision. The mob attacked. Icemule and the attackers was destroyed."

Roelon rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Dayzed deeply says, "Altar south of here."

(and everyone got hit by cold removed)

Talliver shivers as the cold settles into his flesh.

Dayzed deeply asks, "Could that be it?"

Bakarus says, "It was what he wanted."

Roelon just moved quietly north, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Pits of the Dead]

Snowmelt and the passage of years have conspired to make the ceiling a mass of dangling stalactites that drip icy wetness onto the path. The rock formations bear down over the walkway like the fangs of a hungering beast in places, only adding to the claustrophobic press of the walls to either side. A constant low moan fills the air, emanating from the south. You also see a massive snowy white tiger. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Daiyon, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Hoy, Zhagen, Jiarine, Roelon Obvious exits: south, northwest

Bakarus asks, "Did any other here see the vision?"

Roelon rubs his chin thoughtfully.

Dayzed deeply says, "There is an altar just south of us."

Talliver says, "This place has a different sort of cold to it."

Roelon deeply says, "Ah saw nothing but shadows, the play of light."

Bakarus says, "During the signs this afternoon."


Vaemyr nods at Talliver.

Roelon nods at Talliver.

You adopt an agreeable expression.

Rolfard raspily says, "All the cold seems cold to me."

Vaemyr says, "Necromatic energy, and a lot of it."

Alastir says, "Let's move."

Zhagen says, "I have a bad feeling about this, Bakarus might be right."

Gidion agrees with Rolfard.

Roelon just moved quietly northwest, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Pits of the Dead]

Stone effigies crudely fashioned into the shapes of hulking warriors line the portion of the lightless path. In the oppressive gloom, their muddled features take on ghastly planes and hideous twists. One statue among them stands apart. Forged from golvern dulled by disrepair, it depicts a strong-looking winged woman shrouded by folded wings. You also see a massive snowy white tiger. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Daiyon, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Hoy, Zhagen, Jiarine, Roelon Obvious exits: northeast, southeast

You quietly say, "It's very ... biting."

Roelon just moved quietly northeast, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Pits of the Dead]

The tunnelway grows narrow, high walls full of open graves looming monstrously over the dark path. Dry timbers from shattered burial boxes lie scattered on the floor, accompanied by hanks of brittle hair and shards of dry bone. Many of the hollows along the walls are empty and their edges scored with clawlike marks. You also see a massive snowy white tiger. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Daiyon, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Hoy, Zhagen, Jiarine, Roelon Obvious exits: north, southwest


Roelon just moved quietly north, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Pits of the Dead]

The sounds of sluggish liquid moving in the lightless pits to either side of the path is a constant, wet whisper in the darkness. Bitter and coppery, the odor filtering up from the chasms is almost overpowering. Along the eastern wall, skeletal bodies are draped half out of their niches. Though still, they look as if stilled in the midst of crawling forth from their disturbed graves. You also see a massive snowy white tiger. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Daiyon, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Hoy, Zhagen, Jiarine, Roelon Obvious exits: south, northwest

(everyone got hit by the cold removed)

Sorlu says, speaking to Bakarus, "I heard several speaking of that."

Desorceri asks, "The alter to the south warrants inspection no?"

Sorlu nods at Bakarus.

Desorceri blinks.

Roelon just moved quietly south, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Pits of the Dead]

The tunnelway grows narrow, high walls full of open graves looming monstrously over the dark path. Dry timbers from shattered burial boxes lie scattered on the floor, accompanied by hanks of brittle hair and shards of dry bone. Many of the hollows along the walls are empty and their edges scored with clawlike marks. You also see a massive snowy white tiger and a roiling crimson angargeist. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Daiyon, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Hoy, Zhagen, Jiarine, Roelon Obvious exits: north, southwest

(everyone got hit by fear removed)

Talliver says, "It feels like the chill is sucking the life right out of me."

Perigourd says, speaking to Desorceri, "As does the statue, I'd think."

Talliver shivers.

(Removed Battle scene everyone less feared)

Roelon just moved quietly southwest, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Pits of the Dead]

Stone effigies crudely fashioned into the shapes of hulking warriors line the portion of the lightless path. In the oppressive gloom, their muddled features take on ghastly planes and hideous twists.

Tibs screams!

Roelon just moved quietly northeast, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Pits of the Dead]

The tunnelway grows narrow, high walls full of open graves looming monstrously over the dark path. Dry timbers from shattered burial boxes lie scattered on the floor, accompanied by hanks of brittle hair and shards of dry bone. Many of the hollows along the walls are empty and their edges scored with clawlike marks. You also see a massive snowy white tiger, a desiccated arm, a skeletal arm, a putrid arm, a crooked algae-covered pincer, a sun-bleached pure white pincer and a stocky snow white puppy with oversized black-tipped paws. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Hoy, Zhagen, Jiarine, Roelon, Daiyon Obvious exits: north, southwest

Dayzed deeply says, "Hear comes the fear."

Lurrah says, "Yes, it is probably a trap."

Gidion says, speaking to Dayzed, "Too late for me."

Talliver says, "All things considered, we should get out of these pits as swiftly as we can."

Sorlu nods at Talliver.

A putrid arm thrashes about briefly before decaying into dust.

Randsford nods in agreement at Talliver.

Gespry melodically says, "Agreed."

Dayzed deeply says, "If you're all not prepared for very dangerous undead, this may be a time to turn back."

Bakarus says, "Before the mob attacks something, let it at least be discussed."

Sorlu says, "I concur."

Tweaked chuckles.

You quietly say, "These pits are the pits."

Ragz asks, "Do we have anyone that can keep heroism on us?"

Lurrah says, "I have been stuck here for days. This place has many pitfalls."

Roelon deeply says, "We need to be swift in this."


Your breath turns into frosty puffs that glint with crystals. Cold fills your soul.

(everyone got hit with cold damage removed)

Alastir says, "Make haste."

Gespry melodically says, "Lets move it, like we mean it."

Roelon just moved quietly north, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Pits of the Dead]

The sounds of sluggish liquid moving in the lightless pits to either side of the path is a constant, wet whisper in the darkness. Bitter and coppery, the odor filtering up from the chasms is almost overpowering. Along the eastern wall, skeletal bodies are draped half out of their niches. Though still, they look as if stilled in the midst of crawling forth from their disturbed graves. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Zhagen, Jiarine, Roelon Obvious exits: south, northwest

Roelon just moved quietly northwest, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Pits of the Dead]

The porous stone to either side of the pathway has fallen away, leaving but a narrow ribbon of stone to bridge a fathomless abyss. Along the distant walls are stationed the toppling remnants of a veritable army of stone statues, their eroded eyes watching and vigilant. Above them, barely visible in the dimness, grim pigments depict scenes of battle and bloodshed. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Zhagen, Jiarine, Roelon Obvious exits: east, southeast

Roelon just moved quietly east, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Pits of the Dead]

Beneath a low ceiling of hewn stone, the corridor proceeds southward past the empty eyes of crumbling stone statues of men and women in primitive armor. One statue is missing half of its head. The sundered portion lies in the shadowed crevice between the effigy's booted feet, its single eye open as if in fascination or horror. You also see an eyeless black valravn that is flying around. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Zhagen, Jiarine, Roelon Obvious exits: north, west

(everyone feared and battle removed)

Talliver says, "I like this not at all."

Tibs nods slowly.


Roelon nods at Talliver.

Vaemyr nods at Talliver.

Randsford nods in agreement at Talliver.

Roelon just moved quietly north, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Pit Nexus]

A crumbling red stone maw in the southern wall opens onto a vast nexus of cavernous catacombs. Flickering blue torchlight beckons from the vast aperture, the distant light casting the intersection into starker shadow. Wide tunnels branch off in each of the cardinal directions, suggesting that the construction is not natural, but the walls, ground, and ceiling are rough natural stone shot through with vast ruddy veins of ore. You also see an eyeless black valravn that is flying around and a shining winged disir. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Zhagen, Jiarine, Daiyon, Roelon Obvious exits: north, east, south, west

Dayzed says, speaking deeply to Talliver, "Gonna be some corpses among us soon."

(Battle removed)

Rolfard raspily says, "You can ride me like a sleigh when i'm solid frozen."

Roelon deeply asks, "Through the maw we go?"

Roblar smiles.

Talliver nods at Roelon.

Roelon just slipped quietly through a crumbling red stone maw, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Descent]

A snarling visage has been carved into the stones of the northern wall with surprising skill, its vast maw a gaping sea of shadow. The darkness beyond is all the more impenetrable for the flickering glow of two torches hanging in sconces to either side of the portal. They are burning blue. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Zhagen, Jiarine, Daiyon, Roelon Obvious exits: south

Roelon surveys the area.

Talliver says, "Still cold here, but..."

Roelon just moved quietly south, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Descent]

Huge, ruddy stone steps descend into unleavened darkness, framed on either side by high walls of the same rust-colored rock. Dim light from the fane's entrance illuminates primitive paintings on the distant ceiling, revealing rudimentary scenes of battle and conquest. The steps are slightly damp and tacky. You also see a massive snowy white tiger. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Zhagen, Jiarine, Daiyon, Roelon Obvious exits: north

Talliver says, "...not the way it was."

Bakarus says, "We are here to protect Icemule, ultimately."

Sorlu agrees with Bakarus.

Vaemyr says, "Least the wind is a bit less here."

Roelon just slipped quietly up some huge ruddy stone steps, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Greatchamber]

The entrance stands, framed by a pair of colossal red stone pillars, at the apogee of a crescent-shaped walk that curves along the interior of the fane. Towering gigas statues, male and female, stand with battleaxes in hand in alcoves along either wall. Their faces are unwelcoming and their postures unmistakably aggressive. Ruddy stone steps breach the wall to the north, heading precipitously downward into stygian shadow. You also see a massive snowy white tiger, an immense gold-bristled hinterboar and a savage fork-tongued wendigo. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Zhagen, Jiarine, Daiyon, Roelon Obvious exits: east, west

Randsford nods in agreement at Bakarus.

Bakarus says, "But we must be cautious and not run head first."

Sorlu says, speaking to Bakarus, "That is what matters."


Roelon just moved quietly west, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Spirit Walk]

As the high-walled corridor curves toward the northwest, the statues give way to painted effigies along the walls. Flaking and faded with time, the pigments mimic the colors of the aurora, unearthly greens and dazzling blues picking out scenes of death and battle. A smear of brighter, newer red bisects the ancient paintings, marring their flow. You also see a massive snowy white tiger. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Zhagen, Jiarine, Daiyon, Roelon Obvious exits: east, northwest

Jiarine says, "... except for those who have another agenda."

Roelon just moved quietly northwest, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Spirit Walk]

A constant, sluggish flow of thick crimson fluid cascades slowly down the eastern wall. It drips heavily between the ill-fitted stones of the ceiling, dried black and crusty at the edges. Primitive painted figures on the wall's surface have surrendered to the crimson flow, leaving the remaining lines looking half-formed and obscene. You also see a massive snowy white tiger. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Zhagen, Jiarine, Daiyon, Roelon Obvious exits: north, southeast

Desorceri asks, "Are we sure we're supposed to be here?"

Sorlu looks thoughtfully at Jiarine.

Lurrah says, speaking uncertainly to Sorlu, "I don't know if unleashing this evil is good for the town."

Roelon deeply says, "Many sseem to hae such things."

Roelon just moved quietly north, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Spirit Walk]

The stone floor is tacky and red with the spillover from red fluid dripping down the eastern wall. Due to the cant of the ground, the coagulating liquid has pooled at the feet of a carved figure recessed into the western wall. The wild-haired female gigas statue looks little bothered by the flood. You also see a massive snowy white tiger. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Zhagen, Jiarine, Daiyon, Roelon Obvious exits: north, south

Randsford says, speaking to Bakarus, "We should be cautious yes. Afterall we really do not know much of the one leading us here. Could be the one we seek to find as it is."

Bakarus says, "Zeban has proven to be a terrible and deceitful opponent."

Roelon gazes with interest at a female gigas statue.

Dayzed deeply says, "Statue."

Desorceri says, "I thought we were to do something in the other village."

Perigourd glances at some red fluid.

Tweaked chuckles.

>look statue

Framed by wild locks, the face of the gigas warrior depicted in the statue is hard and lined.  She stands in a battle posture, muscles tensed and huge hands gripping a tremendous spear.

Roelon just moved quietly north, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Spirit Walk]

Part of the ceiling has collapsed into the hallway. A fallen monolith, almost as wide as the corridor, supports what remains of the structure's integrity. The monolith is scored with many claw marks that look to have pierced its hard stone with terrifying ease. You also see a massive snowy white tiger, a golden wand, a large gold nugget, a scratched fel coffer, a pair of bloated arms, a pair of skeletal arms, a putrid arm, a deformed arm, a bloody arm, a pair of desiccated arms, an inky black valravn plume, a roiling crimson angargeist that is lying down, a green-eyed white kitten, a roiling crimson angargeist, the Peche disk and obvious signs of someone hiding. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Zhagen, Jiarine, Daiyon, Roelon, Commander Roblar Obvious exits: northeast, south

Sorlu says, speaking to Lurrah, "I am having my doubts about it as well." Roblar chuckles.


Roelon just moved quietly northeast, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Spirit Walk]

Stairs climbing to the western terrace have collapsed under the weight of fallen rubble. Glimpses of starry twilight, tinted with wild hues from the aurora, wink through cracks in the stone. Wind screams through the clefts, filling the hallway with a sound like constant shrieking. You also see a massive snowy white tiger, the Peche disk and obvious signs of someone hiding. Also here: Draelor, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Bakarus, Lurrah, Falvicar, Weyrs, Sasathi, Purveyor Rolfard, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Tibs, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Lord Sorlu, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Zhagen, Jiarine, Daiyon, Roelon, Commander Roblar Obvious exits: southwest


Talliver says, "At least we may have the advantage of surprise."

Roelon nods.

Roelon just moved quietly southwest, with his group following closely.

Part of the ceiling has collapsed into the hallway. A fallen monolith, almost as wide as the corridor, supports what remains of the structure's integrity. The monolith is scored with many claw marks that look to have pierced its hard stone with terrifying ease. You also see a massive snowy white tiger, a decayed arm, some rotted gore-dripping palpi, a pair of fetid decaying palpi, a mangled arm, a pair of bloated arms, a pair of skeletal arms and a putrid arm.

Dayzed says, speaking deeply to Talliver, "For the moment - the screams of our dead will change that."

Randsford looks over at Talliver and shakes his head.

Sorlu grumbles.

Roelon just moved quietly east, with his group following closely.

The entrance stands, framed by a pair of colossal red stone pillars, at the apogee of a crescent-shaped walk that curves along the interior of the fane. Towering gigas statues, male and female, stand with battleaxes in hand in alcoves along either wall. Their faces are unwelcoming and their postures unmistakably aggressive. Ruddy stone steps breach the wall to the north, heading precipitously downward into stygian shadow. You also see a massive snowy white tiger, a savage fork-tongued wendigo, a withered shadow-cloaked draugr and a bloody halfling cannibal. Also here: Lurrah, Dragoon Dayzed, Merrymaker Gespry, Mohrgan, Perigourd, Bakarus, Falvicar, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Jiarine, Roelon Obvious exits: east, west

(battle removed)

Randsford says, speaking to Talliver, "I fear not, likely they are here or watching. They have always proven to be there watching."

Perigourd stands up.


--------Lich Encounter ---------


A hideous, gurgling cackle echoes through the halls of Angargreft.

Alastir stands up.

Desorceri pulls Yakushi to his feet.

Sorlu says, "This seems like a mistake to have come here."

Roelon's face turns slightly pale.

Tweaked squeakily exclaims, "Trying to keep you all from behing horrified is a full time job!"

Falvicar frowns.

Vaemyr says, "So much for surprise."

Roelon deeply says, "Dinnae like this.."

Roelon just moved quietly east, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Spirit Walk]

The slabs of ruddy, iron-laden stone that comprise the floor slowly rise as the corridor bends to the northeast. To either side of the walkway, alcoves that are many times a man's height are recessed into the walls, their edges rough and obviously the work of primitive architects. They are denuded of whatever treasures they once held, but pottery shards and bits of broken bone swept to the corridor's borders hint at vases and ancient art. You also see a massive snowy white tiger and the Peche disk. Also here: Lurrah, Merrymaker Gespry, Perigourd, Bakarus, Falvicar, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Jiarine, Draelor, Tibs, Lord Sorlu, Roelon Obvious exits: northeast, west

Sorlu agrees with Vaemyr.

Roelon just moved quietly northeast, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Spirit Walk]

Cyclopean columns of stone support a high, uneven ceiling that is poorly fitted enough to let the muddled light of the northern sky filter into the hallway. Icy wind, too, finds its way through the cracks with a constant shrill whistle. Recessed alcoves bordering the walk hold naught but shadows and dust. You also see a massive snowy white tiger, the Peche disk, a green-eyed white kitten and a shining winged disir that appears stunned. Also here: Lurrah, Merrymaker Gespry, Perigourd, Bakarus, Falvicar, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Jiarine, Draelor, Tibs, Lord Sorlu, Roelon, Peche, Commander Roblar Obvious exits: north, southwest

(battle removed)

Roblar deeply says, "Wee."

Randsford says, speaking to Roelon, "At the least lets see what we find for now."

Randsford nods encouragingly at Roelon.

Roelon nods.

Roelon just moved quietly north, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Spirit Walk]

The western wall is partly consumed by a curtain of stringy goop and much of the stone is pocked and porous. Its source appears to be a crack in the ceiling. The rocked edges look to have been devoured by some caustic substance. Some of the translucent threads cling to the westward edge of vast stone steps climbing toward the edifice's terraced second story. You also see a massive snowy white tiger. Also here: Lurrah, Merrymaker Gespry, Perigourd, Bakarus, Falvicar, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Jiarine, Draelor, Tibs, Lord Sorlu, Roelon Obvious exits: south

Roelon just slipped quietly up a set of vast stone steps, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Spirit Walk]

Atop a set of vast stone steps, the walkway curves toward the northwest, the path guided by long-spent torches in brackets of rusted iron. One has been wrenched free from its setting, with a gaping hole in the stone left behind. Cold gusts of air whistle along the sepulchral halls like a chorus of mourning cries. You also see a massive snowy white tiger and a green-eyed white kitten. Also here: Lurrah, Merrymaker Gespry, Bakarus, Falvicar, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Jiarine, Draelor, Tibs, Lord Sorlu, Roelon Obvious exits: northwest

You quietly say, "Roblar is having a lot of fun."

Bakarus agrees with Sorlu.

Sorlu asks, speaking to Bakarus, "We have lost the element of surprise. Wouldn't it be wise to fall back, and plan?"

Roelon just moved quietly northwest, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Spirit Walk] Aurora-lit twilight pours in through the arch at the end of the walkway, a crumbling work of heavily pocked red stone. The stones in the eastern wall have buckled, causing a small cave in, but the ceiling still holds. A trailing bit of silvery, translucent goo hangs from the zenith of the archway, drifting sluggishly in the gale howling through the aperture. You also see a massive snowy white tiger. Also here: Lurrah, Merrymaker Gespry, Bakarus, Falvicar, Alastir, Yakushi, Talliver, Nindon, Vaemyr, Gidion, Ragz, Ashraam, Conquerer of Reim Desorceri, Tweaked, Lord Randsford, Jiarine, Draelor, Tibs, Lord Sorlu, Roelon Obvious exits: southeast

Talliver says, "We have lost some of our number."

Bakarus says, "It feels like we've walked into something. Now we are being divided."

Sorlu says, "Another reason to support this idea."

Perigourd just climbed up a set of vast stone steps.

Falvicar ponders.

Perigourd joins Roelon's group.

Roelon nods.

Daiyon just climbed up a set of vast stone steps.

Daiyon joins Roelon's group.

The voice of [[[Zeban]]] says, "Sneaking into my domain like rats."

Lurrah agrees with Bakarus.

The wind outside fills the air with low, plaintive moans.

Roelon hisses.

You gasp.

Vaemyr blinks.

Sorlu smirks.

Roelon pulls his eahnor tower shield in close, shielding his body.

Bakarus blinks.

>search

You don't find anything of interest here. Roundtime: 3 sec.

Gespry gestures. Numerous grotesque limbs in varying states of decay suddenly burst out of the floor! With startling speed and ferocity, the arms grab at whatever they can!

Vaemyr chuckles.

Perigourd searches around for a moment.

Draelor's eyes crease slightly downward.

Gidion laughs!

Randsford gazes in wonder at his surroundings.

A flayed arm thrashes about briefly before decaying into dust.

Sorlu says, "There are no greater sneaks than rats..."

Gidion asks, "Who's sneaking?"

Jiarine folds her hands.

Motes of silvery light sparkle across Falvicar's skin, twinkling like stars, as he prepares a spell... Falvicar gestures. The area becomes brighter.


Sorlu brushes his fingers lightly against his river rat tattoo.

A burnt arm thrashes about briefly before decaying into dust.

Gidion laughs!

Lurrah says, "Rats are crafty."

Lurrah adopts an agreeable expression.

Gidion says, "We smashed everything on the way in."

A mangled arm thrashes about briefly before decaying into dust.

The voice of Zeban says, "I shall break open your corpses and drink them dry."

Many-colored radiance builds in the air nearby, coalescing into the powerful form of a towering woman with shining wings.  The disir steps forth from the light as it ebbs away.

(Battle removed)

Roelon deeply says, "Until ye draw breath nae more...."

Vaemyr says, "It was more like a casual walk to be honest, not much sneaking."

Gidion nods.

A gnarled arm thrashes about briefly before decaying into dust.

Gidion says, "Fair."

Jiarine asks, "Promise?"

Ragz says, "Don't like that."

A mangled arm thrashes about briefly before decaying into dust.

Ethereal flames fly from Ragz's hands as he chants a few words of magic.

Ragz gestures at a shining winged disir.

Bakarus takes a deep breath.

Desorceri asks, "Why are we in this village and not the one [ANHILDE] directed us to?"

Roelon grumbles.

Bakarus says, "Move slowly now, he has been waiting for us."

Rolfard carefully surveys his surroundings.

Zhagen dissolves into motes of serpentine green light that flow up a set of vast stone steps.

Roelon deeply says, "Ah assume this is the way then."

Roelon smirks.

Randsford nods in agreement at Bakarus.

Zhagen joins Roelon's group.

Roelon nods.

Lurrah says, "Sure, sure it is."

Vaemyr says, "We came through there to reach here, because Zeban... well is here."

Desorceri says, "There was an easier path here."

Roelon just moved quietly northwest, with his group following closely.

You shiver.

Lurrah asks, speaking to Vaemyr, "Did we?"

You quietly say, "Ohh."

Desorceri says, "I thought the anchor is in the Pits."

Roelon adds Falvicar to his group.

Lurrah frowns.

Desorceri says, "To help remove the shield from this place."

Rolfard acquires a look of grim determination.

Roelon just slipped quietly through a pocked red stone arch, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Hanging Gardens]

Two huge copper urns filled with soil flank the soaring red stone arch leading from the cyclopean edifice onto the open-air terrace. More planters march along the edges of the esplanade. They are choked with vegetation that has traded verdure for greyness and bright blossoms for an armor of rime. Runnels and pockmarks mar the surrounding architecture, which looks to be crumbling in places. You also see a massive snowy white tiger.

Sorlu says, speaking to Vaemyr, "And waiting for us. He holds the upper hand. We know not what we walk into."

Nindon asks, "Zaban is the anchor, right?"

(cold damage and battle removed)

Desorceri says, "No he has hidden one she thinks."

Bakarus asks, "Any healing to be had?"

Bakarus says, "Nothing major."

Jiarine says, "We have no healer."

Roelon deeply asks, "Everyone ...still in mostly one piece?"

Randsford nods.

Gespry melodically says, "Kinda short on empaths."

Alastir says, "Not for long."

The black void has almost sucked all air out of the area!

Roelon slowly empties his lungs.

You quietly ask, "Void?"

Perigourd ponders.

Sorlu holds up his hand and tilts it side to side in a so-so gesture.

Gidion nods.

You shiver.

Gidion says, "For now."

Rolfard whispers to the group, "Gigaartifacts are only collected by the person who does teh actually looting, unlike reim currency?"

(cold damaged removed)

Rolfard glances at a black void.

Gidion says, "For now."

Roelon just moved quietly northeast, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Hanging Gardens]

One of the huge earthen planters along the outer reaches of the terrace has burst open, unable to contain the frozen earth within it. Brown, dead remnants of the flora within is scattered across the pocked red ground. The cold black soil has scattered everywhere, leaving a grit that rattles like old bones whenever the wind screeches past. You also see a massive snowy white tiger.

Air begins to rush in violently.

Gespry melodically says, "The wind WILL kill us, if we just stand around."

Perigourd just went northeast.

Roelon deeply says, "Moving, the cold will get us before Zeban does."

Lurrah says, "It is only a little loss of blood."

Vaemyr nods at Gespry.

Vaemyr says, "Aye."

Roelon just moved quietly northeast, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Hanging Gardens]

Beyond the jagged edge of the hanging gardens' ruins and far below, the snow-clad woodland spreads to the furthest vagaries of vision. Here and there, the primordial forest is broken by dozens of sprawling settlements, but from such a distance they seem very small. The wind is cold and cuts like glass, screaming over the crumbling edifice like a vengeful banshee. You also see a massive snowy white tiger.

[Angargreft, Hanging Gardens]

Raised plots of soil once boasted saplings taller than a man, but they have dwindled to grey and frozen skeletons in the untended earth, which itself has caked over with murky frost. The terrace extends to the east, but as it does, the stones become uneven and pockmarked with corroded pits that have undermined their integrity. Runnels formed by the same substance have etched wide trails in the construction underfoot. You also see a massive snowy white tiger.

Roelon just moved quietly north, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Hanging Gardens]

Banks of snow cover the wide expanse of terrace, which looks out over a tall swathe of evergreens. The snow is stark and bright against the ruddy stone of the mausoleum's exterior, looking like white linen against drying blood. Ripples of light from the aurora make the banks glisten and gleam in ethereal fashion. You also see a massive snowy white tiger and a squamous reptilian mutant.

Roelon just moved quietly north, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Hanging Gardens]

A splash of incongruous greenery beckons from one of the planters in the form of a single fruit tree. The sapling is heavily encased in ice, and appears to have been frozen swiftly enough to preserve a semblance of life to its graceful branches and spade-like leaves. Spindly fruits with skins that glitter like spun gold hang from the branches, tantalizing but trapped in their frosty shell. You also see a quivering sanguine ooze.

[Angargreft, Hanging Gardens]

The corpse of a huge winged creature with cloudy blue scales lies splayed on the stones, its silvery eyes filmed over in death. Scavengers have picked meat away from its belly, leaving behind bleached bones. A tremendous spear with an obsidian head protrudes from the fallen beast's side, having found purchase in a spot of thinner armor. You also see a quivering sanguine ooze.

Sized for an immense stride, some cracked red stone stairs ascend to the highest reaches of the gargantuan fane, proceeding beneath a series of crumbling arches that are a deeper and more intense red than the rest of the edifice. Chunks of stairway are missing in places, leaving a teetering array of steps at the very top. Beyond the stairs spreads a crescent-shaped plaza dotted with banks of fresh-fallen snow.

Ragz rubs Talliver.

Gespry begins a careful examination of Talliver -- he takes his pulse, checks his temperature, and checks for broken bones or any other ailments.

Imposing runestones point toward the sky like adamant fingers, but the copper-filled sigils on the unyielding stone are defaced with smears of dried brown blood and black char. The vile graffiti takes on snaking forms with cruel curves and violent strokes, marring the runework beneath. Bodies are scattered in the snow drifts that have collected in the shadows of the stones, broken and mangled as if crushed by incredible force. You also see a massive snowy white tiger.

Gespry gestures at Zeban.

Hideous runes well up beneath Zeban's skin as Gespry starts to cast at him, shattering the spell into useless threads of coruscating mana that swiftly fade away.

The sky all around is white with falling snow.

A low and invisible wail follows Gespry's dark incantations, a hundred incomprehensible voices crying out together in agony. Gespry gestures at Zeban.

Ephemeral twists of silver-hazed mist wreathe Gidion's forearms as he murmurs a serene phrase...

Gidion gestures at Bakarus. Nothing happens.


Zeban draws a taloned claw across his opposite wrist. Droplets of blood spill forth, but instead of falling to the ground, they wobble into the air, gleaming like cabochon garnets, and begin whirling around him. Rivulets of incarnadine light arc among the globules, bathing Zeban in crimson luminescence and dancing shadow. The light intensifies, consuming his form in a blinding flash and leaving behind only sullen red smoke.


Roelon hisses.

Jiarine says, "Pretty."

Even tremors rumble through the ground, preceding the arival of a flayed gigas disciple.


Vaemyr growls ferociously!

Roelon just moved quietly southwest, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Berserker's End]

Great steps ascend toward a humongous red stone dais, atop which is an immense bier shielded from the elements by a stone pavilion. The pieces of a robed corpse are strewn across the steps in several parts, torn apart as if they were no more than the playthings of an ungentle child. Underfoot, the ground is tacky with drying blood that, half-frozen, has merged in places with the snowfall into a vile pinkish slush. There is far too much to have come from the sole corpse.

Roelon just slipped quietly up a humongous red stone dais, with his group following closely.

[Angargreft, Berserker's End]

Blood pools thick and dark on the dais, dripping from and oozing between the blocks of ruddy feldspar in a constant sluggish flow. The source appears to be a monstrous figure draped across an equally behemothic bier of red-veined white marble. A quintet of rounded stone pillars supports an ornate roof over the fallen gigas, and each pillar is deeply graven with a downturned scimitar outlined in smeared ash. Wind barely whispers over the ground, as if even the brazen elements fear the place. You also see a massive snowy white tiger and a luminous crimson crystal.

>look Zeban

You see Zeban the Demilich.
His form was once that of a halfling, but it is hideously misshapen.

Ragged hanks of thin black hair sprout from a balding pate covered in sores and liver spots. One of his eyes is filmed over and the other is a lightless black sphere too large for its socket. His limbs are thin and spindly, and his left arm bends oddly. There is a sagging, slumping unevenness to his musculature that makes him look like a half-spent candle slumping in on itself. His maw is wide and red, and he has fangs like a bat's.

He is holding a gnarled blackthorn staff in the remains of his right hand and an ancient black stone tablet in the ruins of his left.

He is wearing some blackened leather sandals, some tattered crimson silk robes, and a tarnished silver chain suspending an emerald-hued talisman.
