Alumerel Songsteel, Anihalis the Unborn, Prussia, Kowski Bronwyn Arkana, and Redwynn were summoned by Henriot the King. They were asked to become a Party for the Greavican Good, and did so reluctantly. Anihalis in particular bluffed that he could not sign the arcane contract, and was instead divinely associated with the contract by a Cleric of Pelor.
Bricksy’s Will was tasked with retrieving the Brazier of Water from the Drasnalian outpost in the Lowland Jungles, which Greavica had bought for the express purpose of gaining the artifact. Though it was suspected that Drasnalia knew there was an artifact in the area, Greavica believed it to be in a mine near the outpost. The groups alibi would be escorting Tiberious Stormwind to the outpost in order to transport himself back to Drasnalia via transportation sigil.
On the way, Prussia stopped at Frindleworth’s Fabulous Fabrications to purchase some shot for her guns, as well as purchasing a pneumatic rifle of Rhyndalwyn design.
During their travels they were surrounded by gnolls, who were soon dispatched. They were held in place by an entangle spell from Anihilous and all four were killed. Logan was sent ahead to find where they had come from.
Upon reaching the keep, Kowski snuck up to the open front door. Gnoll tracks were on the floor of an apparently abandoned building. Jirahd Stormwind was found mostly dead besides a destroyed gnoll in a back room besides the Brazier of Water. Alumerel healed him.
The party split up to explore, eventually finding themselves on the circular observation deck on the roof, where the transportation sigil was located. They killed the gnolls and lion-headed, hyena-bodied creation who lay in ambush there.
Realizing that the party intended to take the brazier, Jirahd used an obsidian, silver skull-tipped staff to blast them. The party attempted to subdue Jirahd and Tiberious, knocking out Jirahd despite his darkness spell. Tiberious used spider climb to go through a secrete passage and head to the brazier room. Tiberious utilized an illusion of a lion-headed beast, many magic missiles, flaming hands, and the brazier itself to nearly kill many in the party. At one point Anihalis, Alumerel, and Redwyn were all unconscious in the Brazier chamber. Kowski sneaking after Tiberious and Prussia remaining alive were key to the parties eventual victory.
Logan had killed some gnolls attempting to climb onto the observation deck and was soon discovered, and was used to transport the two unconscious elves and the Brazier back to Standing Greavica.
Though an unconscious diplomat and arcane experimenter put Greavica in an awkward diplomatic situation, Greavican clerics were able to use the brazier to cease the rain in Basion. Kiiral Seedrin, Concrete “Stanley”, and many other Bastion native survived, though the waters had risen into the slopes by that time.
Alumerel continued her search for the truth about Cormilious.
Anihalis continued to search for the truth about his past, confiding in Jirahd’s staff. (When he attempted to use it during the battle, it mentally instructed him to search for him “on the underside of everything, and behind every shadow”.)
Prussia went back to Bastion to help restructure the Bastion Peacekeepers.
