Mission Summary

  • Party headed out in the morning and met the captain at the Lighthouse for assignment instructions. They were introduced to Altath who would be joining.
  • They teleported to the chamber that had already been entered. From there, they split up into two groups to try and cover more ground faster.
  • Moira and DRACO found a sealed mound. Without the tools necessary to open, they opted to use a Mason’s hammer and Moira’s dagger to dig into one. Once inside, they found two slabs with skeletons draped in shrouds. There were two vases filled with coins and two bowls filled with coins.
  • Altath and Svamp found a sealed mound. Without the tools necessary to open, they tried other methods to enter in but were unsuccessful.
  • The party regrouped and DRACO sat down to create the tools necessary for the job.
  • Meanwhile, the rest of the party went to a mound that had already been plundered. Inside, there were signs of a scuffle and one sarcophagus was broken into. Skeleton lying on the ground with a gold ring.
  • Altath decided to open up a casket, which disturbed the dead inside. He went unconscious twice from the ensuing fight.
  • Party decided to head back to Sydund to regroup, rest, and resupply.
