    Default The Tombs of Redrise

    Deep in the deserts near the Town resides the Tomb of Redrise. The area is barren and dry, consisting of tall buildings made of brownish sandstone. Catacombs and passages run underneath the area, creating a massive dungeon. Corpses and skeletons of the unfortunate residents litter the ground. The buildings have crumbled quite a bit and the whole area is in a horrible state of disrepair. The sky is in perpetual sunrise, or sunset. Thus the name "Redrise".

    A portal appears and the ghost of Magtok emerges from it.

    The shadows waver, like the light of a candle in the breeze, but in reverse. The shapes of Pelgof and all those who chose to accompiany him form out of the darkness.

    Hmm. Cheerful place.
    I apologise now for everything that is wrong with this post.

    Saurous appears in a burst of black energy.

    Okay, so Magtok and Pelgof are here. I just need to wait for the others.

    Saurous begins heading towards the tombs.

    So what's the game plan?

    Any chance we'll see combat?

    Chance appears suddenly, buried up to his chest in sand. He lifts himself out of it and shakes the sand out of his clothing. He counts his wands and is satisfied to see all of them.

    Never fails. It always has to do something strange in terms of location.

    He observes his surroundings.

    Rather unimpressive out here isn't it?

    He follows Saurous.

    I believe scanning the upper area for a place to enter the dungeon will be the best plan. There is nothing much on the outer area. I can gauruntee a battle.

    Pelgof also follows.

    Would it be wise to split up and search the area?

    I believe it would.

    Magtok's search comes up with mostly empty buildings and corpses. On the far side of the area are a group of Earth Elementals. They appear to be heading towards the group.

    The True Seeing finds a door in the basement of a building on the opposite side, leading underground.

    Saurous pulls out Yereth'Draco. He searches nearby buildings with Prying Eyes.

    Pelgof makes sure his staff is handy, and sticks near the others.

    Stone people approaching from there.

    Saurous uses Ghostform, floating above the ground. His arms fill with black flame.

    Would it be worth out time to dispose of the Elementals? Or should we sneak around them and head straight for the door? They appear to be on the same side of the area, so we're going to have to come near the Elementals eventually.

    I have no idea.

    Pelgof draws the shadows towards him, forming a protective shield around his body. He doesn't hover just above the ground.

    Saurous pulls a book out of his bag.

    I suggest flying if you are capable. Earth Elementals are not the best at hitting flying targets.

    He floats quickly in the direction of the Elementals, Yereth at the ready.

    I could fire if you want. Hi Deigrian, no we wouldn't want to do that.

    He follows after Saurous, flying higher as he gets closer to the elementals.

    Magtok flies and soon catches up with Saurous.

    They don't seem that tough. I think this could be easily handled by any one person in the group.

    Pelgof and I can surprise them and begin the battle while the others come shortly afterwards. Chance, use your wands and focus on things that can break stone apart. Magtok...do whatever it is you do. Deigrian, do the same as Magtok.

    Magtok's confidence is unfounded. The elemental group consists of 5 Large ones and 1 Elder Elemental.

    Oh, alright, then.

    He stabs his staff into the ground, and he floats upwards. Just a bit though.

    He also begins to prepare a spell.
