Oren donates time to the needy
Akyrin requests to go Falcon’s Rest due to unresolved issues with the Assassin’s Guild, which is based out of the city.
Ulhar and Oren notice the Eye of Alghautra floating above a mountain top to the Northwest.
The party goes to Ser Derrick to tell him what is happening. He already saw it and also hired a man named Maldrin Stormsky, a snow elf who can help with the snowy travel.
Ulhar teleports everyone to a snowy path some ways below the peak of the mountain. Part way up the mountain, a worked cave appears along the path. Maldrin believes this to lead to the top, though it may contain some dangers, and is longer. Upon entry, it is clearly dwarven in structure. Further in, one path leads to a giant stone door, while the other goes up farther. Interested, Roderick explores the iron door and finds a metal statue wielding a tower shield and a great axe. Roderick informs the party that it is a warforged like him, and wants to repair him, as there is a giant gash from shoulder to hip on it. As he is repairing, Akyrin finds the skeletal remains of 2 dwarves and an elf in the room. Roderick casts ‘Make Whole’ which ignites the warforged’s glowing green eyes. The freshly repaired machine yawns and introduces himself as Leviathis. He tags along with Roderick since he is the only other warforged there, and he believes he is to follow him. Along the giant stone slab, it reads in Infernal, “Darkness Dwells Here.” The party then heads down the other tunnel and finds a staircase that leads up. Checking for traps on the way, Akyrin finds one that would impale the first person up, and disables it. As they climb, they see sunlight.
As they exit, they see four people looking over the cliff’s edge with their back to the entrance to the cave. An elf in silk and cloth garments, a dwarf and halfling in metallic armor, and 2 humans in leather. Spotting us, one of the men turn to the group and tells them to be quiet, and that there is a bounty sent by Phaedrus in Falcon’s Rest. He informs the party that there are at least 10 enemies above them, on the mountain’s peak. Akyrin and one of the humans look up over the lip giving them cover and see a Blighter touching a large stone. Around him is 6 other humanoids and 3 wolves. She informs the party of what she saw, and Wendy the elf helps plan a strategy.
Hidden to the blighters, Akyrin attempts to assassinate one, though she misses. Ulhar then teleports everyone into combat. As he does this, a wall of flame erupts in front of him and he teleports past it. Leviathis charges the Blighter channeling in the orb, though he is ignored. The party spots something in the sky flying towards them. They finish the last of the Blighters when a white dragon lands, and the party flocks towards it to kill it before it has the chance to do the same. Leviathis proves his battle prowess when he slams the dragon’s head into the snow and decapitates it in a single stroke. With everyone in the party surviving, the roguish human tells them that they can have half of the bounty if they meet them in the Misty Dog Inn in Falcon’s rest.
