Send is in his keep studying when Tobius’s crystal comes to life, although the person who comes forth is not Tobius. A dwarf is standing in his place, he then presents himself as Joneth. He is seeking a group of adventurers and asks Send to meet them at the Docks. Send gathers the group together and they head to the docks.
As they arrive at the docks, they see nothing but the daily activities of the area. A couple of hours go by when they see an ancient ship port at the docks. Tobius comes out and ask the group for their names and what title they should go by. Shere Khan presents himself as Defender of Purity. Send gives a list of all his titles and it is quite a list. Thadeus presents himself as The Hawkeye. Isabella says her name and title. Joneth introduces his fellow companions. His human daughter Gilly, the ship wizard named Gareth, and a Paladin of Light named Teresa. We all sign on and he says we will be leaving at fourth call. Shere Khan knows this as a time before sunrise. The group sticks around the docks until the ship arrives.
Ulfgar seems to have changed through the night. There are humans gathering at the docks talking of revolting against the dwarfs. They are quickly taken away by Dwarven guards. Joneth wants the group to go collect supplies for the journey. They also realize though they are themselves, they no longer possess all their abilities. Send steals the mages spellbook and throws it over the boat. The mage gets in a fight with Joneth and is kicked off. They gather on the ship and head out.
Their journey takes them all the way to Creotia. Once they arrive Joneth approaches some guards and finds out the tax for him coming is 1000 gold. The group gives forth all their gold to enter the city. Thadeus goes gambling to win money for supplies. Shere Khan goes off with Gilly getting supplies. Send is asked to go with Joneth. They see that the people of Creotia are quite strict and do not tolerate any trouble. They hear of people disappearing and never coming back. The Paladin is unnerved by these servants of Palor. Thadeus tells her this is not Palor’s doing but just men. They leave the town and head in to the desert to find a grand treasure.
They travel the desert for months, Gilly and Shere Khan begin a relationship. Thadeus is rejected by the Paladin.
Years go by as the group travels the desert. Shere Khan and Gilly in this time have three kids together. The paladin has rejected her faith and decided to be with Thadeus. Most of the mercenaries and helpers have begun to abandon this quest. Shere Khan and Send go after them for not having faith. They come across a Drow named Slyph who helps them survive the desert.
The group finally discovers the mine they are looking for. They begin digging out this mine when they find an underground water source. They come up with a way to pump the water out and dig even deeper. They end up finding a great cache of mithril. Joneth makes plans to sneak through Creotia. Teresa disturbed by this plan wants to stay in this new place we have made. She asks Thadeus to come with her and meet some people. After some debate she leaves and the mine is attacked that night.
The group battles a massive army of Narn. Quickly being out numbered they withdrawal back in to the mine. Every time they kill ten there are ten more waiting. Joneth asks what they should do with the all the treasure. Should we let them have it or blow the reservoir destroying the mine. The group decides to blow the mine. Send informs the group he already has it set up. Shere Khan tells Gilly to take the kids and leave. She refuses at first but succumbs to the decision. Send gets to work detonating the reservoir while being defended by Thadeus and Shere Khan.
As the mine blows, the group is transported back to Ulfgar. The learning crystal is active and it is Joneth sending one last message to Tobius. He doesn’t know if anyone will receive this but the treasure has been buried. It is waiting for one group to come find it. We must journey to the heart of Narn territory to get it.
