The large creature pounced on top of Fey, slamming her to the ground and tearing away at her tiger form. She quickly disengaged from the beast and moved away from it. The creature then pounced on Kallista, again slamming a member to the floor and slashing at her. The beast seamed to have a way of detecting the party in spite of the massive amount of invisibility that was given to everyone. Joto began letting loose multiple arrows, piecing its hide. Bardolf rushed towards it while Kallista retreated away from him. Bardolf and Joto engaged the creature while Fey began healing her friend. The battle continued on with Kallista firing bolts of energy, Joto letting loose arrows, and Bardolf attacking with his hammer. They finally were able to conquer the beast as Fey summoned an orb of fire burning away what little health it had left.
The party took a short rest while Joto began harvesting parts of the creature, a Bulette. He was able to successfully harvest the creatures massive hide armor. The shell was massive and large, requiring him to make a sled from his gear. After a small period of time, the party continued on through the tunnels.
On their travels, they ran into a dead end with broken clay pots. Admist the rubble, they happened to find a completely intact vase. The vase had a carving that showed a great door, a figure sitting upon a throne, and creatures within a black darkness. The party stowed the object and continued on.
Continuing down the dizzying array of halls, they happened upon a tunnel much larger in scale in comparison to everything else they had encountered. They continued for a large distance in its direction until they found themselves in front of another cavern containing over 50 different holes within its walls. Remembering their earlier encounter, they decided to proceed with caution. In doing so, they became alerted as they heard familiar skittering noises beginning to echo from within the tunnels. Quickly, the party retreated to find another route.
They continued onward down a dizzying path of tunnels until finally finding themselves standing over a large abyss over 300 feet wide. With their dark vision they were unable to see how see how deep it went. As they were about to go back, they began to hear the scraping claws of a creature heading in their direction. Not wanting to test their luck, they decided to climb down into the cavernous depths. Looking up, they saw two basalisks eyes starting down at them, although they were unaffected by it’s gaze. Not wanting to test themselves against the creature, the continued downward.
They climbed for multiple hours, hoping to find the bottom. In doing so they felt themselves pass beyond what felt like a threshold into a different domain. A freezing coldness hit their souls as the entered. Even still they continued down. As they did they finally found the bottom. Below them some hundreds to thousands of feet was a city encased in a small glow. The abyss was opened up in the large ceiling. There was no obvious way to get down to the city from exiting the large opening. The party was able to find a ledge that would support them. They headed there to recover from their climbing exhausting and devise a way down to the city below….
