Our heroes returned to the surface, after defeating Shiva-Han-Goromu, and obtaining a mysterious crest he had been guarding.
They were discussing the unfortunate demise of their friend, The Beholder.
“I don’t understand”, said Mariel. “Why doesn’t the Caduceus of Life works on Aeorbs?”
“Because, they have a different biological make-up to normal creatures”, said Cleve. “We’ll need a “Raise Dead” spell to revive her.”
“Where can we obtain that? Can we find it in scroll form?” asked N. Greyford.
“It isn’t just about learning that spell or obtaining a scroll of it. It’s a very advanced piece of magic that requires a very advanced Necromancer to use correctly.”
Everyone looked at Cleve.
“If I learn that spell, you guys will be the first to know.”
After wandering through the thick, overgrown Briarpatch Woods for several hours, our heroes saw civilisation on the horizon.
They wandered into the village, which seemed deserted.
A small wooden sign on the wall said “Village of Crowl”.
Sinister layers of fog covered the ground… something was very off in this town.
A devious, black-garbed troublemaker approached our protagonists.
