Evil temples suck

still in the dungeon
we set the trap on the door to the hall with cells
we lock and cast a rope trick in the bedroom used for storage
we hide in the storage room and rest behind a silent image wall
we spend an hour planning this trap
after two hours of resting, we hear the snare go off
we hear about 5 people in the other room
we wake up the paladin
the sounds go away and the door opens a bit later
a guy checks the room and leaves
two hours latter the bone devil attacks then flees
we enter the sanctuary, see people and pull back
we go back in and people are gone but two wooden constructs attack
we take them out and go to a room with two hazy areas things
the things are two gates and dessa deactivates them
they turn into small piramids – one goes to underdark and one to hell
we start exploring
we find several nice rooms, some empty some lived in but emptied
the nicest room we have seen was ransacked before we got there
we finally open open the secret door by pushing two buttons on the pedestals the constructs came from
we go into the room but its silenced and we find the high priest
the bone devil also comes in
dessa dies
eva walks into blood and passes out
the scimitar turns into an awesome weapon after hitting the high priest
gintari is charmed to protect the cleric
kidaj was almost compelled into attacking forward, but then saved
forward stepped out of the room and cast lightning bolt on the cleric
forward tries to use the scroll of summon monster but fails
kidaj and gintari spend a lot of time under charm person
we get hit with several channel negative energy
suman closes the door, heals forward who just dropped, and closed the door

suman and forward try to drag eva away
gintari almost died
kidaj manages to wake up and takes out the cleric
the bone devil flees
we find the treasure room
we find a second roam with clothes, money, and letters
the letters make it seem like this place really wasnt complete
we find one letter addressed to the dark one that refers to a task that the high priest is not willing to do and also refers to their liege
we eventually find a secret door with a long tunnel that exits

A dark and evil place

still in the dungeon
suman and forward have a very cool deception of a cleric we found
we are jumped by a bone devil
we find a empty karval torture room
we find the inner temple

What lies below?

late evening
Forward is in the high priest storwyn of valburn room
forward finds a decorative dagger with a jade fox in pommel
also finds a letter from baron gregory godwin saying good luck with the temple
forward also thinks he can disable the trap without having the ring if he could actually get to it

we sleep until lunch time
we rest during the afternoon and enter the temple around 2:30 in the morning

we enter the temple before dawn
khidaj found an exceptionally well hidden panel with a button behind it
the door in the floor is much more noticeable
forward thinks he disabled the trap
since the door popped up slighly, we pushed on the door and it easily slid down and away
the door is a very intricate and mechanical contraption
we put the room back as well as we can and go down the stairs
there is a lever by the bottom of the stairs, two fountains, and a door
the fountains are very nice but have a thick red liquid instead of water and there are murals on the walls
next to the fountains are a lot of red candles
there are four murals – the first is of bephomat and people bowing before him, the second is anthropomorphic goats, the third is humans with goat heads, and the forth is of a plane of hell
there are two messages that say the same thing in infernal, “there is power in blood”
the ceiling is decorated
the lever opens and closes the trap door thing
we open the door further into the dungeon
as soon as it opens, we hear a gong
we see a long hallway that has two doors close to us and end futher down in a t intersection
we hear nothing at either door and then check them for traps
after checking the doors, we get a fireball to the face and combat starts
we barely manage to get down the hall

Back to Celedon

we also recieved a letter from gintari’s father stating that he is working as part of a mercenary troop under king blackwood
jared said he would vouch for us and claim that we swore to him
jared asks us to join him for dinner
the dinner is very good food
jared goes around and speak to the people
jared asks us to stick around a little bit becuase he has recieved some disturbing news

it starts to snow today
we go starting
its starts to have very heavy snow in the evening
by the end of the day, there were 3 feet of snow

for the next 3 days, we are basically snowed in

the weather starts to clear

we spend several days to get our stuff togeather and to find magical items
we also go to bren and try to get Mangus Goldhart raised but it failed
bren says that mangus’ soul was bound

we set out from wildkeep for celedon

we arrived at celedon
we manage to speak to the high priestess sinare immediately
we also speak to nancy
she tells us that the person voted against the guild of mangus voted with ‘their’ heart
she tells us that there has been no missing people who miss the pattern in the last 3 or 4 months in the city
she also says that is appears that none are missing in the pattern westerhold or woodmere
we tell sinare about how jared has been and she says he always acted nice but she still doesnt trust him
we rest for the night at the king’s head (the adventurer’s inn)

kidaj and i go to visit bathazar
we find that the shop he used to be in is boarded up
we break in and find that the shop appears to be partially empty but a lot of things that are left are burned
we decide to look into a source of 15k gp diamonds that would be used in the ritual
we head to the jewelry district of the merchants square
the rest stay outside while eva and suman look for a place to buy the diamonds
we find that only two stores sell that level of jewelry
both shops say that they have never done anything like that diamond
we try the same type of investigation about the bowl and horn
we find that none have made the bowl or horn and were were even advised against using obsidian in that type of item which would make it memerable
we return to the inn
suman goes on his date

serena and eva look for a seller of soot from hell or mane of dieased lion and we do not find it
suman goes on the lunch with his girlfiend’s father
suman gets a tip on the third shop

we check out the third shop
he says he hasnt done it but would love to try
suman checks the other two people who could have done it and they havent done it

we speak to the zoo keeper
he says a while ago they found two cheetahs missing hearts and chimpanzee’s missing brains
we think the deugar probably got the diamonds and other rare things that could be mined

we go to the galloping unicorn – the ranger and the rogue go in but the rest of us stay out of town
they says that they have information about us
the innkeeper says that they would need to wait

we wait 3 days

the two are apporached by a man
the dude says that info on us is 500gp a head payable after death
the dude leaves abrumptly them as soon as they ask what crime they commited
they were unable to follow him
we regroup

we get back to celedon
we look for places to buy the common ingredents

the 6th place we go to mention a guy who bought a ton of the common ingredients
he says the man who bought it was renwick, a cleric of terryn from newton
we tell nancy about our lead
we set out for newton

we get to newton and head to the temple
we speak to renwick
renwick says that storwyn of valburn, the high priest here, asked him to do it
he says that the high priest storwyn has a ‘skin condition’ who is a half elf, clean shaven, older, 70s yo, experienced, has some very high level spells, occasionally have visitors who seem to be a fair number of dwarves
renwick says that the dwarves who visit him are kinda dark or greyish
renwick says that jared was mostly out of the country when the temple was built but gregory visited often
jared is the benefactor of the temple and is a great ruler
jared came regularly when he was in town
we as for a tour of the temple
its pretty small
he shows us where storwyns quarters are
there is a small outbuilding where the infirm, traveling followers of terryn, and the initiates stay
the last time storwyn was here was maybe two weeks ago
storwyn is the only person who has quarters within the temple
storwyns skin looks leathery and redish
forward is able to break into the temple that night
he is able to get into the room
he finds the outlines of something that can open under a rug
it appears to be trapped to go off if you try to open it
it looks like it needs a special ring to use as a key
