Rise of the Runelords
April 10th, 2016
The tunnels here had walls adorned in blood, but also bits of flesh. If there was any guess, the unfortunate guards from Sandpoint met their fates here, shredded to pieces by something. The group continued through, as the hallway narrowed. However, as they progressed, they heard growling. Valtyra, who led the pack, was attacked by 6 different hounds, who looked similar to the yeth hounds the party fought back when they were first dealing with Nualia. THese hounds seemed stronger, but they flew over each other to take the advantageous opportunity to gang up on one target. Valtyra fended off most of the attacks, but did get struck and drug to the ground by one of the hounds. Vincent quickly drug him backwards, as Philip conjured up a wall of ice to blockade the small tunnel. This gave the group the chance to back up into the bloody area, giving them more space to fight.

Philip decided to scout the area using his ring of invisibilty and his ability to turn into an earth elemental to burrow into the dirt, pop up in a section of the kennel to see what the status is, and then return. What he discovered quickly before being detected by the hounds noses is that the southern kennel had another stanza written in it. He returned quickly, unable to read it before running into trouble.

They devised to used Shazam, Naolexa’s fox familiar, as bait to lure the hounds back to them, instead of being bottlenecked in the tunnel. It worked, as Philip dismissed the wall, Shazam yipped, and the hounds gave chase. Nevik took some assistance from Vincent as he casted a spell to make him invisible for some time, and attempted to get the sneak on some of the targets. They fought 4 of the dogs, killing them easily, however 2 were unaccounted for as they traveled back into their kennel area. They scoped the area, and found the fourth stanza:
ON FROZEN MOUNTAIN XIN AWAITS, HIS REGAL VOICE THE YAWNING GATES
EYS TURN TWICE IN SIHEDRON--OCCULTED RUNEFORGE WAITS WITHIN.


After writing this down, Nevik proceed forward to scout the small hallway that narrowed to the west. He discovered a small room, the walls covered in writing. Most of the writing overlapped each other now, to the point of illegibility; except for another stanza on the door opposite from him:
AND NOW YOU’VE COME AND JOINED THE FORGE UPON RARE LORE YOU MIND CAN GORGE-
AND WHEN YOU SLOUGH THE MORTAL WAY IN RUNEFORGE LONG YOUR WORK SHALL STAY.


Nevik concentrated on this and read this, after of which he completed, he heard maniacal laughing...
