Chronicales of Gregg
After tackling that rather nimble half-ling which for me was no trouble at all had it been anyone else he would of got away with him crimes.
We went in search for Balthzar but his quarters were empty and a quick search of the room gave us a few clue to what had gone on. The real Balthzar had been strangled and stuff into a wardrobe this was a surprise to the monks since he had been so helpful but this was all a plan.
Athon sensed some form of arcane power had been used not to long ago and deducted that a teleportation ritual had been used one he was sure only allowed to move no more then 10ft but that was enough to elude us.
Pretty much soon after we had been summoned to the eatery to see to brother odgood who was acting strange in the middle of a arcane carving on the floor, he then collapsed and 6 daemons appeared and they intended on killing us.
They could only be described by the lashing tongues of a creature called a canoloth which tried to strangle their prey. There were also pain daemons which caused damage whenever you entered their proximity and finally a bladling firing sharp spikes and attacking with his longsword. They were no match for the company of the purple eclipse. I picked up some spiked bracers from the bladling i’m sure theses will come in useful.
With the Key puzzle still unsolved we decided to use the books of candlekeep to our advantage,
firstly by looking up information on Netherall and also the swords which we shall use to kill Diker thane they were described as 2 swords and one implement which is shaped in the form of a sword.
Belgrath found the blueprints of candlekeep none of which showed any secret tunnels which someone could use to their advantage, on closer inspection the attic looked the place to hide so off we headed.
With the investigation still ongoing we got all the monks and Pilgrims to assemble in one room so we could search the keep with the intent to kill anyone who got in our way. Our search lead to the a trap door in the roof and in quick pursuit we caught up with the cloaked figure.
Garad rushed out to grab him because he noticed the book with his keen eye and as he grappled onto the figure it turned into what can all be a black ooze which then split into 4 and the book skidded to the side of the roof.
A golden dragon landed upon the roof and belgrath countered his landing with a rays of pure sunlight illuminating the roof destroying the ooze where it well oozed. Seeing my opportunity charging with my axe held above my head to which it delivered a heavy blow to the dragon causing it to retaliate with a firey breath and within it frightful presence knocking myslef and athon off balance but delamor pure devotion to sehianeene she protected him. Garad with tumbles and rolls allowed him to grasp the book from beneath the dragons claw and then with a flurry and stabbing and high and low slashes blood poured from the dragon. It clawed out at Athon raking across his chest being him close to death but Delamor inspiration spurred him on.
I came back with a thundering blow toppling the dragon and with its final attack scraping athon once again with his claws but Garad plunged his dagger deep In the heart of the fiery beast.
