Entering the room, the heroes wipe out the defenders in the tower.
Looking up the shaft it is a lift above it. Tol feels he has seen this before, a small bit of Force energy
There is another recess in the ceiling of the opposite.
Switch races across and jumps onto the lift as does Memnnon and Ozzie. Althea is thinking as to how.
Ozzie feels that the structures were teleported into the area with beacons.
The lift rises up into the air to arrive into a corridor at the far end is a set of blinking crystals and a table. There is a sense of movement further ahead. It would appear that we have reached the main firing gemstone rather than the top gem. The heroes feel that this is the middle floor.
The flashing crystal does look like the guardians but set into the wall. Switch stealthily sneaks down to peer around the corner….. where he sees a Carnifex, an Obsidion golem and another crystal in the wall and three Carnifex type golems. They are all alert but not reacting as if they are aware of Switch’s presence.
Memnnon barrels around the corner and is missed by the Carnifex’s shot. Ozzie charms the creatures to go and attack the Carnifex.
The Crystalline defence fires at the heroes, missing., whilst the Obsidion guardian charges towards Memnnon, the troglefex charge in madly and Memnnon pushes them away as Althea burrows through and bursts out of the ground to wallop the Obsidion golem, missing but marks them all.
The Carnifex moves down and creates a correlating blast of energy allowing its creatures to get in amongst the party. It also sees that Memnnon is a cleric of t he immortals and marks him, the cleric retail items with fire.
Ozzie weaves the warp of the world to avoid the Carnifex’s blast of beyond before pushing the enemy back and putting up a wall of fire to block off some of the attacks.
Memnnon gets up and calls upon the wrath of his god agains the Carnifex. The Obsidion Golem charges into Althea knocking her over and then stamping in her, whilst the troglefex takes advantage of Althea’s proned state to bite her. She shakes her self and heals herself and stands up.
Tols arrows fly true, killing the golem, but missing the troglefex., whilst Switch dashes is to stab it before darting out of the way.
The Carnifex moves back in to beam the beyond at the wizard knocking him over and pushing him, however the wizard teleports back and tries to push the enemy back into the fire, but fails to push them back any further.
A troglefex next to Althea shifts to attack Memnnon, biting the cleric before being hauled back by the Elven warden, before she unleashes bursts of lightning and moves to protect the cleric.
More arrows fly and the halfling tumbles into the battle and backstabs the troglefex twice, before ducking back out of the melee, followed by the Carnifex, which swipes at the halfling and calls for its remaining troglefex to get through the wall.
Ozzie tries to transform the battlefield, teleporting one of the troglefex into the fire and moving Althea and Althea to flank the troglefex.
“When the stars are right and Galrgroth moves close we will have our victory” shouts the
Carnifex and then dies as Tol’s arrow strikes true into the Carnifex. Switch does an evasive backstab on the troglefex and over on to try and dismantle the trap.
Ozzie drops the wall of fire as the party line up to take out the last troglefex, except it’s not there. Ozzie teleports over to make sure it’s not coming up the lift to attack from behind.
The party moves down and Switch starts to dismantle the trap. Which he does with ease.
The lift returns to the level and everyone gets on and rises to the next level.
A reddish light floods the room from the ceiling and a similar one is directly in the centre of the room, with a crystal facing outwards.
Below the giant crystal is a controller type platform and rods and Obsidion blocks. There are several Carnifex Montgomery aggressively towards us
All the party attack each other as they come under the effect of the Carnifex’s spell. Then Switch runs up the side of the wall and over the top of the troglefex, taking a bite from one of them and then backstabs it back.
Ozzie teleports the Crystalline guardian to another place and dazes the Carnifex., whilst pushing the troglefex away from the party… although towards Switch, who shifts nimbly out of the way and across the battlefield…. and they still pursue him and bite him. Memnnon calls down the power of the sun and most of the battlefield explodes in bright light. At the same time Althea changes into a magma form and burrows through the ground to reappear next to the Carnifex
Switch escapes across the battlefield and Ozzie charms 2 of the troglefex salad the Carnifex to bite each other.
Ozzie is surprised to be attacked by an invisible assailant, which really hurts. Tol flies over to the bleeding halfling and exhales him to heal himself.
Memnnon turns diabolical and strides into the middle of the battlefield and unleashes a solar wrath against all the bad guys.
Flames ignite around the area from the Carnifex, which also burn Althea and she passes out.
Ozzie crushes and blinds across the battlefield and then teleports away from his invisible assailant. The troglefex bite each other.
Memnnon is bleeding profusely and is still being monstered by the bad guys and Tol is coming to the rescue with a healing word. Memnnon rises from the ruins of his own blood, as Tol’s twin strike, strikes true, killing the Carnifex and then turning his weapon against the troglefex, but misses. Memnnon stabilises and revives Althea who responds by lightning her back.
Ozzie is attacked by his invisible assailant, but his dagger saves him and teleports him to safety.
