The party returned with their tale of success and woe to the Titan Maladoconious (Doc for short - a joke I like as Titans are generally not short). The had made the greatest advances known through the Fane and had fallen just short of success.
So now, what to do. Khalil (Thf 10) came forward with all of the adventures he & Dorminder had enjoyed regarding the Eye of the Night; that he had recovered some telescope items and given these to his guild; recovered more items and decided that he should not give these to his guild, and, that perhaps everything would be best in the hands of the Council of Elders in NorthEnding. Embla (Ftr
was inclined to bring the Olympic rings from the Sunless Garden (which could summon Ogremoch, the earthen archomental) to the hands of Good Sister Karoline of the Council of Elders.
However, Rhiannon (Drd
mentioned that while the party was enjoying the Fane of the Egg, she busied herself trying to figure out the Olympic Rings (she could not, Wasabi Pea (MU 7) could). Doc had approached her to find out what's the what with the Snirfiblin (DCC 43, I could not take the spelling/name business in that module and so called them Snirfiblin). Insodoing, Rhiannon found a room at the end of everything that provided a permanency affect; she can now speak any language. And how that room had a portal through which she saw a totally different range of mountains. Way up, she saw a white dragon flying into a batcave which was, from R's perspective, up a 150' sheer rock wall of ice. This sounded enticing, and, Doc was completely oblivious to this portal. Doc also made plain that he is now older, a little slower, and way less inclined to be out adventuring. Could you take care of that, he asked?
The party ventured into the mountains, into the Snirfiblin lair, found the room that granted permanency affects and got nothing out of the deal. The portal did open up revealing a totally different mountain scape that what should be there. Ahead was a sheer wall 150 feet tall with a dragon looking right down upon us. This dragon is the dragon that is cut into the batcave. Man did it freak the party out. To save wind, the party attacked the dragon head and the dragon tail and then realised after the fact that both were a total waste of time and energy. They party is currently stopped at the front door. Rather than have all four dragon heads breath down, which I find severe, only the heads that are not in the right position breath. They have been hit once and are now looking more closely at the text clues.
