Stolen Paradox

Session 38

Unther the Vile

The group takes a short rest before proceeding further into the Crypt of Unther the Vile. They turn left and then head through a door that leads into a large room with many sarcophagus and alcoves with skeletal remains. Cage takes the lead as he senses undead in the room and goes to seak it out.

When he reaches the center of the room, a shadow creature dressed like a knight jumps out of the shadows and attacks, hitting Cage (13) and (13).

The shadow evaporates and the group is left on their own. The group takes a short rest while Ruby searches over the room. They find 50pp. They then press forward into the next room. Within the next room they find a large throne-like room that is a burial chamber. Within the room is Unther the Vile in the form of a lich.

The group has a conversation with Unther, who wishes to leave the crypt, but can’t due to an arcane barrier that imprisons him. He is willing to trade an item of power that the dragon seeks in exchange for lowering the barrier. Kalenthor considers the offer while Cage says he can’t do it due to his oath. Laren reminds the group that letting the lich out could effect the timeline. When asked what the dragons are after, Unther explains that he has an Orb of Dragonkind. Kalenthor counters to say he wants to put Unther in a sphere that protects him from the town while they bring the dragons to the town. Unther would then use the Orb to tame the dragon and then allow the defenders to kill the dragons. Once the dragons are defeated, Unther would then be allowed to leave unharmed. Unther agrees, believing that even if the group betrays him, he can defeat the group and flee.

The group leaves the crypt and heads back top side. They meet with Freas. They tell him about the possible deal and Corwin voices his displeasure with the idea. They then take a long rest. While they rest, they decide to just go ahead and attack Unther and take the Orb as it is the broader safe action to take.

The group returns to the crypt the next day and meets with Unther. Kalthenor gets his signature on the necromancy book before they head back to the entrance where he points out that the pillars are the barrier. Kalenthor goes about trying to “figure out” the barrier while Cage goes to begin the attack with his pick 2nd level smite (37).
