As the heat of battle wears off, more narration is heard:
And so the world became ice. The worldstone, corrupted by Ryloth, tainted the world it so protected. The powerful magic spread over the world, and the world was blanketed in snow and ice.
They move on to another room. James grabs the door handle, and his hand freezes to the cold brass. He ignores it and opens the door, and the rips his hand off the handle. Some skin is left behind.
Narration is hearrd:
The tower needed guarding. Who else to guard but a legion of loyal undead? Unfortunately they proved unideal servants and were discarded. Discarded, discarded.
Golomov notices a iron sack of crawling skeletons attached to the ceiling. Dozens and dozens of skeletons, still animated but trapped. James ignores it and moves on. The party follows the demonic pace. The next room has an altar in the centre. Runes glow with a faint light, scrolls flutter in the wind, half tattered papers attached to ropes around the altar. It pulses with an ominous light.
As they walk around the altar, narration echoes through the room:
Explorers, or could you call them looters, came across a hidden altar - In the old forgotten Empire up in the Dead Dream Tongue. The altar of Ryloth. His history is unknown, but the creation stories of this planet speak of the battle between fire and ice and the compromise they had.
Stories are sometimes littered with truth - These demons were sealed. In altars.The truth; a battle raged over Alindest, and both demons were weakened enough so that men, summoning the means they had, subdued the demons and sealed them away.
Greed, often the bane of men, froze over the hearts of all.
As a witness to my own failings, I cannot judge these men. But their foolishness soon cost them their lives. The demon unleashed, his ancient knowledge of the world put to good use.
And as it ended, the altar glows, the runes glowing one after another. Before the party can even react, a demon appears out of a purple smoke. It rages telepathically into the party's minds, abyssal speech in a foul tongue, and then it attacks.
The party take the severe end of its attacks, golomov attempts to hold his ground. Fith turns into a bear, and attempts to hold the demon at bay. The demon spins around and zaps lightning through the party, and everyone fails their save. James is knocked unconscious, and the rest take heavy damage. Golomov fights the creature and does decent daPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
