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.

The group starts out still talking with Tobius. He leads us to an elaborate teleportation circle. Send begins operating it with direction of Tobius. Seth takes the crystal with Tobius inside. Seth and Send pray to their gods and get a vision that they need to control the battlefield. Most creatures have a high resistance to spells. Shere Khan prays and sees that there are special symbols that grant blessings and curses to our enemies. We get transported to an arena of sorts. We appear two hundred feet in the air. Send and Seth quickly cast feather fall on Shere Khan and Thadeus. As the group is floating down they see an old staircase that is worn out. There are horrid carvings long since faded.
As the group arrives at the bottom they see a lush forest. Outside of the forest is a grassy area leading to a wide river. There is a lake of lava past the river. In two of the corners there are two hills rising to above 80 ft. The opening we came through disappears and 90 ft in the air is a dangerous looking black smoke.
The Battle begins instantly and we begin fighting five plant creatures. Pathox flies up and spots four canon golems, who begin firing at him. Shere khan senses a symbol on the hill with the golems and leaps up the cliff face. Send turns in to a magma elemental and begins playing in the lava. He launches fireballs at the creatures. Thadeus and Seth begin fighting off the creatures. After dropping three, Seth grabs Thadeus before he drops and dimension doors to Shere Khan. Send casts wall of force on the cliff face so we can heal up and regroup.
Shere Khan punches all the symbols and destroys the creatures cannons. The group partially heals up when they are attacked. Pathox and Send are feared. The enemies have been healed and two more creatures have joined them. Thadeus and Share Khan kill one of the new creatures and it explodes. Thadeus goes down in battle. Shere Khan kills the second creature and it explodes. Shere Khan takes the brunt of the explosion to save Thadeus from death. Seth then drops in battle and Shere Khan keeps up the fight when Thadeus does one last divine act to kill one creature.
Shere Khan says a prayer and is told by his god that these creatures are being forced to fight. We don’t have to kill all of them. So Shere Khan begins talking with the last plant creature. She stops attacking and begins questioning Shere Khan. Send coming out of his induced fear wonders why we aren’t killing all these creatures. The Girl tells us there is a giant sleeping in the Lake of lava. He knows when his servants are slain and he is beginning to rise.
The group is able to heal up. Seth resurrects all the fallen plant creatures. The creature begins to awaken and the group attacks it. Send hits the creature with a dazed fireball. The plant lady asks if we can talk the creature in to getting the treasure we seek. Send says he can do it so we decide to kill the giant. Send turns in to a magma elemental and brings up the first piece of the artifact.
The artifact is called Vengful Wrath of the Gods. It looks like a piece of a crown. We get teleported back to Tobius and he gives us the circle. It is able to follow us if Send can activate it. As he activates the circle, he sees six figures around the circle. We get back to Ulfgar and the circle has come with us. It shrinks down in to a tiny box. The King’s Men are waiting for them at the circle. They wish to take them to the king. They stop at the bank and Thadeus upgrades his account to a third tier vault. He places the circle in it until they can find a place to set it up. They can’t decide where to store their secret chest.
Thadeus decides to take some advice Tobius gave the group. “Seek out those stronger or more devious to hide these artifacts.” Thadeus heads to the Temple of Asmodious. He tells the priests their god owes him a favor. They doubt him and threaten the group if he is wrong. So we go to their altar and Asmodious himself appears. The priests are shocked and begin bowing. The group all bows and he tells us to place all the artifacts in the vault of Ulfgar. He then states his favor is fulfilled. Thadeus asks if he can also block anyone from searching for it. He says no and leaves. The group then places all the items in Thadeus’s vault.
They meet with the king and he asks what he can do to help. He also tells us about how he can not order the armies to march. We must come up with some way to convince all the judges to send out the order. The group contemplates how they can do this. The King gives them all Rings of Freedom of Movement. Shere Khan and Seth are given 20000 gold because they already have one.

She tells him she can’t fight them because she has been ordered to guide us through the Underdark.
The group decides to investigate these 3 items. Seth does some great research and finds the first artifact is deep in the desert with the Narn. We decide to use the circle to teleport.

At the top of the peak, Thadeus sees great legions of Narn and Colossal scorpions moving around. We go back down and head in to the citadel.
We seem to be walking for hours when we come across a room filled with women of all races. The women seem to change to whatever race we prefer. Shere Khan finds one tigress and mates with her.

We start studying the crystal and are taken to a great tower with a small cottage next to it. We go in and meet a wizard named Tobius. He has created this place to give us a reason for fighting. He tells us of the great magic that has created this place. He tells us the three pieces of this artifact are wielded as a great weapon to destroy a god. He tells us we can either destroy this realm or take the impossible road to claiming this first artifact. We then decide to preserve this place and prove our worth. He tells us, “It is not our job to kill Rovagug or the Titans. It is our job to put them to rest and keep them that way. Anyone who says it is your job to kill them is surely your enemy.” He tells us the stones will work in the town of Highfall and the highest peak used to be his home.
We get these women as a separate Leadership. We can teach them anything we wish. They can not do anything against us unless it is due to an act of gods or seed magic.

Each of us introduces ourselves. Send gives a grand display of pyrotechnics. Pathox goes on a rant of his many great deeds. Shere Khan does great feats of acrobatics. Chihiro sneaks past everyone to appear in the fight. Thadeus introduces himself and announces the gods he represents. Seth attempts to give a speech and continuously farts.
We vanish and reappear in a random location on the arena floor. The battle begins against some big spiders and two giant winged skeletons. During the fight, random things happen every time we do something. Traps will just appear out of nowhere, we will be healed or hurt. We quickly dispatch the group with might and magic. We get the feeling this is only the beginning of this battle. We only have minutes to heal up and prepare.
As we are healing, we hear a booming voice. He says he is a titan and is about to awaken. He is a Hekatonkheires. He is going to send forth more of his champions. We are randomly scattered in side the arena again. This time we are fighting some shadow mastiffs and three giants. More random things keep happening. We beat these creatures but have taken a beating. After the fight, Chihiro disappears and Isabella appears in her place. We have a minute to heal before the next fight. We quickly heal up using wands and prepare for battle. Seth casts fly and invisibility. Send also casts invisibility on himself.
The next battle begins, this time we are fighting 3 Imperial Magma Dragons and some flying brains. Random things continue to happen. The brains are quickly dealt with but the dragons take awhile to beat. During the fight, Pathox and Thadeus are feared by the dragons and are running around. They end up in a far corner of the arena fighting over said corner.
After the battle, a portal opens up on the arena wall. The Vaultkeeper appears and says the gods congratulate us. He tells us our prize for winning is to choose a boon for our cause, or a hindrance for our enemies. They learn their enemies out number our forces greatly. The boon would give us Ulfgars full support and make it so our forces can quickly get to the Dwarven Kingdom. After some debating we decide to accept the boon for our cause. He says we will return to Ulfgar as champions. Send begis drooling over all of the Vaultkeepers magic items. He tries to impress him by having a debate with him. The Vaultkeeper quickly beats him in the debate. As the Vaultkeeper begins to walk away, Send ask if he can have his wand. The Vaultkeeper says, “In my eyes, you are closer to obtaining it then you think.”
The Vaultkeeper opens up a portal and tells us we can go anywhere we wish. We must simply pass think of it and pass through the portal. Thadeus decides to go to the King of Ulfgar’s palace. Seth asks to go wherever his friends are and appears next to Thadeus. They both see a huge party forming and the guards come to us. The guards take us somewhere to get clean and ready for the party. Thadeus takes Seth to get something to drink and some food for his familiar. Send goes to the Great Library and appears next to a mage that had him kicked out. The man shocked at his appearance begins groveling and begging forgiveness. He is later reinstated to the Library and given a private area for his experiments. Isabella goes to the druid’s grove and is greeted by her fellow druids. They begin paying her tribute. Shere Khan appears at Prince Fifftiffnes’s palace. He is recognized for his royal lineage. The prince bows to him and orders his men to do the same. The Prince tells him the group has become High Nobles. It grants them more land and a steward to help watch over it. Pathox appears at his shrine and 200 people are there worshiping it. He is very pleased and almost euphoric about it.
Send goes to the library looking for the dragon lady, we signed a contract with. He asks her where she was at because we had a deal and they never showed up. She tells him she was on a date. He gets mad and asks her for her name but she doesn’t give it. He storms off and leaves the library.
At the party, we are announced as High Nobles and are given a dowry of 24000 gold a piece. We are given access to a noble house to learn from fellow nobles.

Seth decides to send a message to the Dwarven General. He learns that a wizard messed with his scrying and made him see the King get murdered. The King is alive and well. Seth goes to the Shadow Dancers Guild and gets caught by apprentices. He is asked by the guild master if he is loyal to his group or his friends. He says he doesn’t want to mess with the Godborn. The Guild Master gets mad and tells him to take a week off.
Shere Khan heads to Highfall to see how they are doing on the monastery. They are doing quite well on the construction. The town is doing quite well and doesn’t have a problem with the Illithids or Tigress’s. Shere Khan’s apprentice is doing quite well with the training. As a group we decide to let the non lords be magistrates.
Thadeus visits with his ten girls training to be merchants. One of them has been sleeping with the Teacher for a good grade. Thadeus gives her a strict lecture. She apologizes but tells him she just likes her old profession. Thadeus tells her she can do that but she has to finish school first. All the bimbos except and continue their education. Thadeus goes to pay his taxes and is approached by a higher banking official. The Official asks about a discrepancy they found. Something was removed from his account through deception. They ask if he signed a paper to remove the item. Thadeus says he did, just so the Temple of Torag would not get in trouble. He then visits the Broken Anvil. He gets a profit of 18 gold. He then gives his money to the best servants as a bonus.
Pathox goes and does his monthly jobs. He then goes to his horde and finds the gargoyle who brings a contract filled out in Draconic. The gargoyle wishes to adopt the girl. Pathox says no and the gargoyle leaves him alone.
Prince Fifftiffnes comes to Thadeus. He notices a new circlet around the Prince’s head. He asks what it is and the Prince tells him he has been given a new title. The Prince tells him about some info one of his servants found. He tells him about the Temple of Makura. It means either worthless death, peace of light, or masters game. He thinks it may be connected to the Temple of New Moon’s Peace. They got it off of a woman at the Grand Library. He thinks she should be there for another four days. Thadeus asks what he can do to award a good job. The Prince tells him they like eating things with a little intelligence.
Thadeus, Seth, and Pathox decide to go to the library. Seth is admitted but they do not let Thadeus and Pathox in. Seth vouches for Thadeus but tells Pathox to stay outside. Thadeus finds the girl and sees her playing with a crystal. She releases the crystal and it seeks Thadeus out. As it gets closer it starts to pulse and she notices him. She invites Thadeus over to the table and asks him to decipher these books. He calls Seth over. Seth finds out the Temple of Makura is south of The Dwarven Kingdom. Thadeus does not let Seth tell her the information. She gets mad and tells Thadeus he is being rude. Thadeus just says he doesn’t know her. Now if they could get to know each other he would be glad to work with her. She refuses to talk with Thadeus and tries to tell Seth he is welcome to help her study. Thadeus tells him not to and Seth decides to stay behind.
Isabella and Shere Khan are at the Druid’s Grove. They are approached by two shrouded people. They wish to make an arrangement with them. They want us to help them, so later we can do them a favor. Shere Khan refuses and the two go on there way.
Send decides to sneak in to that library. He finds a man and a woman talking about a deal they want to make. They say they don’t think we will accept their deal. The man asks if they should threaten the ones the group cares about. She says that would be a bad idea maybe we should placate them. She pulls out a crystal and it begins to buzz pointing in Send’s direction. He offers her a sticky treat. He then asks if he can help her study. She says he can study if he can convince his leader to join them. He says I do not have a leader. She lets him look and he deciphers the script. It says, “The deception of the Peace of Light will bring worthless death to the Masters of the Game.” He tells her what he says and says he was hoping to talk with a great mind. She says a may not be a great mind but she will prove to be of great body. She strips down and they have a good time. She tells him about a calling. It seems to be calling all of us. An ancient magic is forcing us all to compete in a great game. They want to enter a binding contract with the help of contract demons. They seem to be legit. She tells him to convince his group and they should meet in two days.
The group decides to sign the contract. Seth summons an angel to come examine the contract and gets the contract balanced out. We all sign and they decide to meet us down there. We decide to head out to Ulfgar. We get there and decide to use their circle to get down south. Send uses Thadeus’s map and we transport. We appear in a desert landscape. The group does survival to survive until night. Seth casts rope trick. While on watch, Thadeus hears a loud thumming sound. He tries to wake the group and stealths. He begins to think it might be a huge army and runs back in to the Rope trick. They see a huge army passing underneath the rope trick. The night wears on and the army passes by.
The group decides to follow the army. Seth tries to scry the army but feels an immense pressure on his head. He goes blind and loses his strength. His sight and strength return after 2 hours. We come across a caravan that has been destroyed by the army. We ride off on the camels and get to a huge statue. Around the statue, is 120000 humans doing a chant. Thadeus begins donning a disguise to look like these creatures. As he is donning his disguise the group sees him transform in to one of these people. They ask what he has done, and he doesn’t know. A man comes out and begins talking. Seth begins translating, “It is time for us to take our right place. The Gods of Old are awakening. We are doing this in the name of peace. We forgotten people shall take our place. It is time for us to rise and bang against the wall of our prison.” The statues begin to raise its hand and the land turns in to rich soil and water pours out. The statue represents an old god that was put down by the new pantheon.
We begin walking through the crowd heading for the entrance to the tomb. The walls are a smooth black stone which absorbs all light. Thadeus begins thinking of what they need to do. The group begins stealthing, and they get a feeling they need to come out of stealth. We see forms of black mist leaping towards us. They seem to be a feline type species. The battle rages on and a wizard enters the scene. Thadeus dispatches the wizard and the group wins the day.
The furs are easily worth 1500 gold a piece there are 3, Scroll of invisibility, Scroll of Magic Missile.
As Shere Khan and Thadeus begin skinning these creatures. Isabella’s mount hears a voice in its head and the creature asks, “Who are you?” “What is this place and why am I here?” He wants to fight honorably and asks who our champion is. The mount says the dragon is our champion. The creature appears bowing and Send casts a spell at it. He hits it with scorching ray. The creature then attacks Send and begins to attack. Seth talks the creature out of its action. The creature says its name is Katem which means leader of many. He offers to fight one on one with our champion. Pathox steps forward and they fight. Pathox takes a lot of damage and submits to his power. The creature offers his hand and says, “The gods are with you this day.” He departs and Seth heals him.
