Sin tried to move the statue in the room with the gargoyles and failed to do so. Gir decides to help and finally moves the statue off of the ladder. Wheezer climbs down first followed by Gardain jumping down the hole. The rest of the party climbed down after. Upon entering the room the party notices engraved lines in the four surrounding walls and the four corners each contain a statue with a goblet. Wheezer moves to a statue cuts himself and pours the blood into the goblet. One of the lines shine with the flow of blood. Next Gardain moves to the door and attempts to open it he is slid back. The Erevan, Sin, and Gir also cut themselves and pour the blood into the remaining gauntlets. The blood pools on the ceiling and finally drops into three apparently hostile creatures. The party fights the creatures until none remain. At the end the party takes a short rest and Charles mops up the blood with his spare cloth armor. The party proceeds through the door and down some stairs. Upon reaching the lower floor Inglop charges the stone door at the end of the hallway completely shattering the stone door. At this point a majority of the party also move inside the room to be confronted by some form of ice humanoid. The party destroys it and finds several valuable items that Erevan picks up. Sin begins searching the room and discovers that the central pillar can be moved. He then finds a blue stone underneath it that he then picks up against Wheezer’s many complaints. As soon as the stone is removed a new stronger door seals the party inside of the room. Also the ice on the floor shifts into creatures. Inglop grabs Gardain and throws him onto the pedastal where he calls out a challenge to the ice creatures who surround and die to Gardain’s hammer. Only to have two new ice creatures replace each of the fallen ice creatures. At this point most of the party attempts to retreat. The only one safely outside of the room is Charles who was not in the room when the stone was picked up. At this point a Wheezer and Erevan work together to open the locked door. Meanwhile Gardain and Sin slaghter a fair number of the ice creatures. The team makes a hasty retreat through the now open door with Sin flying out of danger while pulling Gardain and Gir. During the retreat Wheezer realizes that with the damage from the stone he will die before completing his goals and agrees to store the stone inside of Gardain’s piggy until he needs it. Once all party members have left the room the ice creatures return to the floor. The party leaves the dungeon returning to the airship for an extended rest while the crew of bugbears fly them to Ormithon.

Upon waking in the middle of the hidden room the party begins by healing Charles who laid on the ground in a stable condition during the night. After this the party leaves the room to finish exploring the dungeon. Gardain puts away his hammer and carries the sleeping Charles as they proceed. Wheezer and Erevan arrive at the previous room where the dragons guts lay throughout the room. Wheezer lights these on fire. The party proceeds back along the path they had taken until they see an area they have yet to explore.
At this point Wheezer blasts down the wooden door. Sin proceeds inside and finds a diamond with an estimated value of 5000 gold pieces. He quickly pockets the diamond before the rest of the party sees it. Upon reaching the entrance of the dungeon the party finds themselves staring into a massive blizzard.
Sin then announces that the airship looks to be on its way to pick us up. Gardain begins rummaging through his bag and states that it is not our airship. Upon closer inspection Sin realizes that the flying object to the north is a dragon. At which Gardain says to make a break for the airship. Wheezer complains that we should be burning this inferior creature but Erevan proceeds to follow Gardain towards the airship without listening to the tiny wizard on his shoulder. Sin moves to make a dash to the north hoping to get the dragon to follow him away from the party and then outrun the dragon before circling back to the group. Erevan is the first to arrive on the airship and quickly prepares the ship for battle. Gardain is next tossing Charles into his room and proceeding to start up the airship. The dragon lands at the entrance to the cave ignoring all members of the party and calling into the cave in a language unspoken by the party. Sin begins walking back to the airship. The dragon walks over to Sin and asks if he has been inside of the cave recently. Sin tries to inform the dragon that he did indeed enter the cave but left when he discovered dragons fighting. The dragon proceeds down into the dungeon while Sin returns to the ship.
The party proceeds south west towards the Cavern to Hell that was shown on the map in the previous dungeon. During this three day travel the group feasts on the dragon meat obtained by the bugbears from the slain enemies. Charles is the only party member that refuses to eat the dragon meat. Upon arriving at the cavern to hell the party enters and begins to explore.
They find a door that upon reaching it shines with a purple light and welcomes them to the cavern. Gardain pushes open the door and Erevan proceeds into a room with a multitude of pillars. Gargoyles attack the party darting between the pillars while striking the group with their claws. Eventually the party overcomes the gargoyles and Gardain takes some of the dust left from the gargoyles into his bag.

The party continued down into the ruins. Charles looked around the passageways to make sure there were no traps while the party continued forward. Upon reaching the stairs Gardain and Gir continued at an uninterupted pace down the stairs into the next room. J sensed two large auras of magical energy separate from the energy emanating from the ruins and warned the party of this while proceeding down the staircase. Upon reaching the lower floor Sin checked the room on the right and issued an all clear. At the same time Gir checked the room on the left and also gave the all clear. Gardain walked straight to the center door pushed it open and continued walking finally halting when he saw the two dragon like creatures. Gradain greeted the dragons which responded with get out of here. Gardain then mentioned that we are looking for something and can’t leave until we find it. The dragons then mention the map again while trying to tell the party to leave. Gardain mentions that we had met similar creatures on the floor above also looking for a map. At this point Charles tries to help Gardain and says we killed those morons. Gardain realizing the danger quickly states and if you don’t want to end up in the same state you will help us find the orb and we will be on our way. This leads to a fight where the party wins and receives 1750 exp. They also find a small assortment of items and finally a secret passage. Gardain and Gir attempt several times to proceed down the passage only to be thrown back with a large amount of force. Wheezer and Erevan realize the trap and disarm it allowing the party to continue forward.
May 16, 2011 13:08
Erevan, Sin, J, Gardain, and Wheezer continue into the ruins.
J hears noises coming from the room down the passage to the right.
Gardain asks for suggestions when reaching a three way fork.
Erevan points out that military tactics continually choose the right hand path in order to make sure they clear every room.
Gardain follows this advice and takes the right passageway to a door.
Gardain opens the door and sees 2 silver scaled lizard like creatures and a blue and silver lizard like creature all of which were searching the room.
Gardain says “Sorry wrong room”, and then shuts the door.
Wheezer runs up and reopens the door.
The dragons tell the party to leave the ruins.
Gardain gives an explanation that we cannot leave until we find the glowing orb. Also the dragons are searching for a map of some kind.
One dragon holds out a perfect sphere rock and gives it to Gardain.
Wheezer lights the rock on fire.
Gardain believes it to be an everlasting stone of fire.
Due to the sudden use of magic the dragons attack.
During the battle Charles shows up and does some needed healing.
After the battle the party discovers two amulets one of physical and the other of mental resolve and a ruby scabbard.
Gardian also takes the scales, teeth, and claws from the dragons.
