The Sins of the Father

More Dragons

The party continued down into the ruins. Charles looked around the passageways to make sure there were no traps while the party continued forward. Upon reaching the stairs Gardain and Gir continued at an uninterupted pace down the stairs into the next room. J sensed two large auras of magical energy separate from the energy emanating from the ruins and warned the party of this while proceeding down the staircase. Upon reaching the lower floor Sin checked the room on the right and issued an all clear. At the same time Gir checked the room on the left and also gave the all clear. Gardain walked straight to the center door pushed it open and continued walking finally halting when he saw the two dragon like creatures. Gradain greeted the dragons which responded with get out of here. Gardain then mentioned that we are looking for something and can’t leave until we find it. The dragons then mention the map again while trying to tell the party to leave. Gardain mentions that we had met similar creatures on the floor above also looking for a map. At this point Charles tries to help Gardain and says we killed those morons. Gardain realizing the danger quickly states and if you don’t want to end up in the same state you will help us find the orb and we will be on our way. This leads to a fight where the party wins and receives 1750 exp. They also find a small assortment of items and finally a secret passage. Gardain and Gir attempt several times to proceed down the passage only to be thrown back with a large amount of force. Wheezer and Erevan realize the trap and disarm it allowing the party to continue forward.

Exploring the Dragon Tomb

Erevan, Sin, J, Gardain, and Wheezer continue into the ruins.
J hears noises coming from the room down the passage to the right.
Gardain asks for suggestions when reaching a three way fork.
Erevan points out that military tactics continually choose the right hand path in order to make sure they clear every room.
Gardain follows this advice and takes the right passageway to a door.
Gardain opens the door and sees 2 silver scaled lizard like creatures and a blue and silver lizard like creature all of which were searching the room.
Gardain says “Sorry wrong room”, and then shuts the door.
Wheezer runs up and reopens the door.
The dragons tell the party to leave the ruins.
Gardain gives an explanation that we cannot leave until we find the glowing orb. Also the dragons are searching for a map of some kind.
One dragon holds out a perfect sphere rock and gives it to Gardain.
Wheezer lights the rock on fire.
Gardain believes it to be an everlasting stone of fire.
Due to the sudden use of magic the dragons attack.
During the battle Charles shows up and does some needed healing.
After the battle the party discovers two amulets one of physical and the other of mental resolve and a ruby scabbard.
Gardian also takes the scales, teeth, and claws from the dragons.
