As the Party started on their way, they found themselves whisked away from their travel to a strange room. Large iron creatures stood around the room. It seemed to be a normal living area, with a fireplace. Though the party noticed that those they had met before, were there. Teeli, Dalisay, Aranel, along with others that they did not recognize. They were greeted by a woman wearing a long white cloak and hood, who strangely had one eye that was made of a gemstone. She introduced herself as Adin Shamas, and let the group rest while dinner was being prepared. They slept only a minute, and felt as though they had eight hours of rest. Upon dinner, Adin spoke to everyone that was there. She said that they were running out of time to find the leader of the Emerald Guardians, and she feared that she was already dead. She got updates from the leaders of the other factions, though the leader of the Human faction, the Sapphire Soldiers, was not there.
After dinner, the others made their way towards the Living room. Adin approached Twelve with two scrolls and a staff. The letter was from his mentor, along with the staff and the scroll, which was of a powerful spell that she knew he would one day need.
When Adin and Twelve went into the living room, another woman appeared in the room, having a large hippogriff with her. She had a hammer that was bigger than she was. She introduced herself as Alexandra Drake, the leader of the Sapphire Soldiers. Adin gave the Party amulets that would work only for themselves, and whoever they willingly touched, and the stones that would be placed in it would take them to each of the factions’ bases. Alexandra gave the group a sapphire, which would take them to the Human base when they were ready. She advised that their problems would be suicide if they decided to show up any time soon. Alexandra said her goodbye and left.
The group was introduced to two new friends, a dwarf barbarian, and a human barbarian.
After the meeting was adjourned, they were sent back to the road they were on, and they moved on. Their path led them to an old mausoleum that blocked the path, the old doors barely hanging on for dear life. They slowly went inside, lighting up the area, and finding a mummy, wearing armor that had a unicorn on it. The Unicorn was the symbol of the god of Purity, Kanea.
The mummy introduced himself, and to their surprise, the Mummy was actually an ancestor of Celesta. They talked for a good while, about the past, and the present, and Celesta found out that her ancestor was wanting to meet this girl he had seen pass through his mausoleum. He had written her a letter, and asked the party to deliver it for him, since he could not leave.
Celesta accepted, and they moved on to find a girl known as Onara. They moved on and went to the inn, where the dwarf got drunk and knocked himself out. They found out that Onara was the village’s occult-dealer, and her shop only opened around dusk. The group waited and had dinner, and around dusk, the Inn keeper asked if they were going to be out or in. When asked why, he stated that he had seen his aunt out in the courtyard a few days ago, and his aunt had died few weeks previous.
The group knew that it was another undead problem. They decided to dispatch of the zombies, going outside and meeting with a group of six of them. The group killed them easily, and made their way towards the graveyard. They knocked on the door of the undertaker, and found the door creak open. There was blood on the door. Going inside, they found the undertaker dead in his bed, obviously eaten.
The party made their way towards the back, Heinz deciding to jump out the window, and find himself side by side to three zombies. The party made their way out the back door, and to their surprise, these zombies were faster than the others, and two of them were found to have the plague. The party managed to get rid of them, without getting infected, and made their way to speak with Onara.
Onara was a strange one, having a shop of strange items, none of the magical quality, since she didn’t want Blood Moon after her. She agreed to meet with the mummy, obviously fascinated with mummies, and went out with them.
