Chapter 10
The Secret Tunnel Rivers; Traveling to the Skymine, Hura

The group returned from the mountains in the evening. The guards at the gates of Demas informed them that someone had been waiting for them in one of the city’s beer houses. Arriving at the beer house, the group found a grey skinned man, in a smoky black cloak who called himself Psammenitus, an ally of Upius and member of the Oracles of Dawn. Psammenitus discusses information about a quest that Upius had for the group: to visit a location he had found that appeared to be a base for the cultists that were attacking the group. He also informed the group that Upius had been working on investigations involving ancient bloodlines and the transference of power through them. Psammenitus suspected further trouble with the cult was brewing…

Psammenitus did not seem pleased that the group had something to do with Upius’s demise in the deep ocean. Regardless, he ensured Halis that he had taken care of the second hag that attacked the group. He also informed Halis that there were probably more hags (a circle).

Psammenitus left them a map of Upius’s and some information about the location of the cult. A sealed skymine named Hura, 8,000 feet up in the south east Evereach mountains was where the cultists had been heading. Psammenitus had learned that there was a temple somewhere inside the skymine that was supposedly older than the world of Superna itself. He asked the group to investigate and then return to him to meet in Hotep after they figured out what was going on.

After a night’s rest, the group set out on the pathway to the mountain. To avoid attention, the group took a more discrete rout suggested by Psammenitus, through the mountain tunnels that lead through various caverns and water ways. The gnome boat master, Fildor supplied the group with a boat and directions to safely traverse the waterways.

Travels through the tunnels took a couple of days. Eventually the group encounter a tribe of slimy Kuo-toa riding on the backs of giant frogs. After a brief combat broke out, where one of the giant frogs ALMOST ate one of the Kuo-toas… the group moves on. Further travels were eventually blocked when the group encountered Myconids (the spore-mushroom people) guarding the path and demanding fealty for passage!

The bothered adventurers decided to try and talk to the Myconids living in the caverns nearby, in an attempt to negotiate admittance through the passage they needed to travel. The party was invited into the great cavernous domain of the Myconids, and brought to their leader, the Great Sovereign (a really big humanoid mushroom man).The Great Sovereign informed the group that in order to pass through the river-way they had intended to go, that they must be accepted by the great spirits their society worshiped. With that, the Myconids unleashed a hallucinatory spore cloud upon the adventurers that had them all seeing strange visions.

The Myconids accepted the group into their society. Sarish then told the Great Sovereign about the base the group was building, and the Great Sovereign decided to propose a massive march to the location where all of the Myconids could live with the adventurers (away from the troublesome Kuo-toa), since the adventurers were part of their society now! A great march began that shook the stones of the cavern! Teren, who was the least affected by the spore hallucinations, managed to stop the Myconids from marching towards the group’s base. Instead, Teren convinced the Myconids to travel further north, where Teren knew they would encounter the Bug Bears that the group had forced out of the valley near their base.

The Great Sovereign, now convinced that Sarish had been fooling him about the location of their base, decided to punish her by sending a small Myconid societal justiciary to confirm that Sarish would follow all Myconid rules and no longer lie… the small Myconid was promptly beheaded and thrown off the boat into the river, after the group sobered up the following day.

The adventures through the underground tunnels came to an end when the group found an exit leading to a trail in the southern foothills of the Evereach mountain range. The party traversed the mountain trail, and scaled mountain walls until they arrived at their destination. At the peaks of the crags the adventurers had climbed up to (8,000 feet up that is!), one stood out… their destination: the only mountain peak in the range that was surrounded by large cumulonimbus clouds, originating from a dark cave mouth – the entrance to Hura…

Chapter 9
Wyvern's and Sabertooth Tigers and Bugbears, Oh My!

A lovely and mildly skin scorching day begins again in the empire of Ra-Theris, where we find our heroes on the frontiers of civilization, in the secret, mountain-cradled city of Demas…

The party regrouped in Demas at home and set out on the mountain trails, once again, to return to the hidden valley of the waterfall in the Evereach Mountains (to secure a safe and secret location to build their base). After arriving in the initial part of the valley (where a great lake resides) and exploring it, the group found the waterfall. Behind the waterfall was a hidden path that led to the secluded valley they had sought. Unfortunately, a Wyvern had taken up residence upon a lone craggy peak within the hidden valley. After Ophiddiusss scaled the walls of this peak to investigate the situation, the Wyvern spotted him and attacked. The group fought together and slayed the Wyvern. Three baby Wyverns remained that the group decided to keep and train (after the babies just saw their mother slayed by the party… No bad feels though. Just a Down-Time activity now. Make sure to ONLY pay attention to game mechanics!).

When the hidden valley ranch was secured, the group returned to the former valley (where the lake is). After exploring the great lake valley further, the party found a cave that had been taken over by some Bugbears that rode giant goats (ye old biker gang). The party waltzed into the cave-home of these unsuspecting Bugbears, and began murdering them and looting all of their goods (and right when they were in the middle of their daily Bugbear chores), like valiant heroes do! Eventually the Bugbear warlord, and leader of their tribe put a halt to the battles and offered to resolve matters honorably (just like all Chaotic Evil creatures normally do), by having one of the party’s warriors challenge him to one on one combat, with the winner claiming rule of the caves. Sarish accepted the challenge, with Halis transforming into her bear mount to fight against the Bugbear leader’s Saber Tooth Tiger mount. Sarish and Halis easily took down the Bugbear leader and his Saber-toothy friend, and the rest of the Bugbear tribe was forced to leave the valley, happily so, without any bad feels or grudges whatsoever. Nooo grudges. All good…. Yep… totes cool!

The party continued exploring the lake valley and discovered two caves in the south that showed signs of a creature (appearing to be an Ettin by the tracks and scraps of bones left behind). It appeared that the creature had abandoned the cave. The party also encountered a mysterious apparition in the lake, that resembled the description of a Halfling (one of the lost races of Ra-Theris). The Halfling beckoned the adventurers to swim beneath the surface of the lake, with the wave of it hand. Sarish followed the Halfling into the water, nearly drowning. Eventually the group was able to follow the Halfling further beneath the surface of the lake, to a deep location within, where the Halfling pointed towards a magical treasure.

The intrepid adventurers left and returned to the city of Demas, where they rested, exchanged magic items in the market place (with Dragonborn Bros. Inc) and secured means for their base construction to begin in hidden valley ranch. Teren recruited a group of wandering Rangers to act as guardians for the servants and builders during construction, and Strahd the Half Ogre agreed to watch over this operation as their trusted ally (who they gave a sending stone to, for magical voice chat and texts).

Note: Teren, using a magical scroll the group found, was able to identify that Ophidiusss’ magical ring was a ring of wishes (3).
