Rise of the Runelords
May 1st, 2016
The party waited out the wall of ice to melt, then proceeded to move forward into the cave mouth. The group moved in cautiously, when suddenly the ground began to shake and tremble. From the walls themselves, numerous earth elementals came out of the walls, while undead creatures also rose from the dirt itself. Guardians of the entrance, they meant to stop our heroes.

Our heroes showed them what for, however, as they began to play around with their new found skills. Dov summoned an elder fire elemental to combat the elder earth elemental among the guardian’s ranks, while the rest of the group whittled away at the various creatures. When the final creature fell, they proceeded further into the hall.

They encountered stone statues, which denoted a slight incline. Looking around however, they noticed that there was actually an invisible ledge hugging the wall. The group, not knowing where exactly they were heading, decided to take the ledge to proceed further. A good choice, as they proceeded towards a large gaping hole. Likely what would have happened is the incline would cause them to slip due to frost, and then slide towards this hole, possibly to drop an unknown height. The ledge guided them down the hole, and lead them to a massive room of connecting caves.

The caves seemed to be collapsed, but the important part here was the things in the center. A dragon’s horde, most likely Arkyst’s, lay here The heroes quickly gathered up all of it, shoving it into bag of holding for use there. More importantly, however, was the ring of 7 pillars, and one large pillar. Each of the smaller pillars had a keyhole on it, most likely to match the key found outside the cave. They group worked together to pull all of the keys together, which caused a rift to occur and a portal to open up on the large pillar. Hesitant at first, the group slowly one by one went through the portal.
