Wait, THIS WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING!?
Well, here they were…
They took Nander’s suggestion about the Chronoworks and Cosmic Egg, which had given them the Mechano Egg, which had spawned a Mechanized Owl, which had flown away, which had returned a week later with a special key, which they had used to open the magical vault containing the first tablet, Lachesis.
The Samhain Horror, a horrible being from another dimension, guarded this tablet, and although it was a terrifying entity, they were surprised at how easily they had defeated it.
“That thing looked like a giant levitating testicle!” proclaimed Chuck.
Ignoring Chuck’s comment, they approached the chest that stored the tablet. Opening it, they found that the tablet had been covered in several sticky preservation fluids… the tablet must have been created thousands of years ago for the makers to go to that much trouble… perhaps they knew it would be millenia before anyone found it.
“Thank the Exemplar! We found the first tablet!” said Cleve. “I’ll bet the others are somewhere in this vault as well.”
“I don’t think so.” said N.
“No particular reason.”
So they looked and looked and failed to find another tablet. After a while, Mariel found something.
“Hey guys, I didn’t find a tablet, but I definitely found somethin’.”
She was referring to a mysterious altar with a glowing floor. Stepping on it, they found that they were transported to a place they were unfamiliar with…
They examined their surroundings, and found beautiful rushing rivers and rock faces around them. Pushing on through these natural walls, they emerged to a sight that made their minds explode with a million questions.
The heroes realised that they had only found the first tablet, and the amount of trouble they had finding the first one was a cakewalk compared to finding the rest.
The journey was not over…
It had only just begun.
“Well,” said Chuck. “I’d better call my wife and tell her I won’t be home in time for dinner.”
