Day 2 Continued
The doors to the main sanctuary of the Cathedral of Corellon were shut. The party spread out to listen carefully at several of the doors in the entrance hall. The two Halflings listened at the main double doors, which shattered as the fist of a Cadaver Golem punched through and pushed them back. The golem was the front line for two Kenku assassins, a necromancer standing near the dais and a sniper perched in the balcony.
Randuil learned the hard way that the assassins had rigged several traps throughout the cathedral as upon reaching the top of the balcony was bathed in fire from a Flame Jet trap. Dri quickly shot up the necromancer who was forced to hide down in the recessed area where worshipers knelt and meditated a millennium ago. When Lunnin ran down to finish off the necromancer, electrical charges shot through his legs, a trap laid by the Kenku. The traps placed by the Kenku also hit Kaltes Tundral and Dri.
The necromancer went down without dealing too much damage, but did send Lunnin back through the lightning traps one more time. After killing the necromancer, the party finished off the Golem and the Sniper. A search of the bodies produced, 2,200gp, Antipathy Gloves, Healer’s Gloves, and a note directed toward Ryva the Audacious from the Drohta, The Headless Kenku. He has sent nine assassins to hunt down the audacious one.
After taking the day to rest to recover from the Kenku assassins 8 and 9, the party stepped through the mural at the back of the main sanctuary. Which lead them to a group of pilgrims, worshipers of Ioun. By all appearances, the wizard named Cloudwatcher had summoned them to protect the pilgrims which were being pursued by White Cloaks of the Aeristhyde Empire. The White Cloaks are witch hunters. At this mention, Kaltes realized they were back in the time of the last empire. During this period, the gods were thought to be asleep and there was no divine power, that is until some children started to display the ability to channel divine power. The Empire believed this would create a rally point and tried to hunt down these “witches” and kill them. Cloudwatcher needed to reach a rendezvous point south of their current location and summoned the PCs to help them reach it unharmed.
Dri and Cloudwatcher spoke while they traveled. The wizard believed he could help Dri and the others get back to their intended path.
They ran into some Imperial Soldiers, but the party let two soldiers slip past them. These soldiers killed two of the pilgrims who were shielding Math with their lives. Then a blue light surrounded Math and the slain pilgrims were back alive. The boy collapsed and the party quickly finished off the Imperial Soldiers.
