While the party sat at the bar, Leominar and Draco went to the Emerald Palace to talk with the King. While there Leominar disclosed his real name surprising Draco as well as the King who disbelieved him as his family was supposedly killed by a plague of some magical sorts. The King who Leominar was finally able to convince he was real told him the Serpenthelms were to arrive in Graystone in 4-5 months time. This shocked Leominar who wasn't prepared to face the couple at the moment and realized that he needed to gain power in a short amount of time.
While at the bar Stinger realized that a women was staring at him from across the room while he was drinking. After a quick discussion the party prompted him to go and engage the women in conversation. After some flirting the two of them went up to the woman's room, while there and after some more flirting the woman disclosed that her name was Delilah, who Stinger did not recognize but was quickly informed as Delilah drew a dagger from her back and rushed Stinger while declaring that he left her mother without a husband and her without a father. After a few swipes Delilah was finally able to get a hit in and stuck Stinger with the dagger while Stinger was trying to council her and to get her to stop attacking. After a while he was finally able to calm her emotions and she reviled that she had been looking for him for several years and heard that he was in Greystone with the company of Leominars Legionnaires. After a few words Delilah left the room in tears to her party and they got up and left the establishment with Stinger completely lost for words.
After arriving back at the Inn Leominar discussed with the party that he wanted to head back to the mine where their first adventure was taken place to go deeper into the tunnel where they had heard a noise and quickly fled before finding out what it was. After about 3 days of travel the party heard a flapping in the middle of the night and the wind picked up considerably. The party quickly woke up and prepared for battle with what happened to be a white dragon that almost took down the whole party with it's initial breath weapon. Through quick team work the party was able to keep bringing people who were close to death back up and were able to kill the dragon. After massacring the corpse of the dragon for most of what was on it, the party moved camp and slept the rest of the night.
After a few more days worth of travel the party arrived in Fort Dixon to a party for them in honor of them slaying the dragon that was killing the cattle and other animals in the surrounding lands. After resupplying they traveled into the mountains and after a few days a few of the party noticed a figure in the snow storm that had wings before it disappeared, after a few moments a woman in nothing more than rags appeared in front of the party and fell into the arms of Leominar. After realizing the woman was incapacitated they moved further finding a cave with some strange symbols on the walls and on the floor. Once in the cave the party lit a fire which woke the woman and while everyone was distracted she kissed Leominar killing him out right. After a brief battle the woman vanished in thin air. Using the scroll of Revivify the group was able to bring Leominar back from the brink of death and back to the land of the living. After spending the night in the cave the group found a hidden lever that opened the back of the cave which contained a bed and about 2000 gold as well as some gems and other items. During the night there was a massive snow storm that produced about 6 feet of snow, which the party complexed about how so much snow could gather in one night decided they needed to leave with Garm and Ashus digging a tunnel for the group to move through the snow.
After about 5 miles the group saw a large figure looking in their general direction. The figure had two heads which the party determined was a Ettin. After a rather quick battle the group won and dug their way up to the body and realized he was just burying his mate. The group saw that the path diverged one heading to the Thorp with the mine and the other heading to an unknown destination. Deciding to test their luck in the snow storm the party headed off their intended path and made towards the new path. After about an hour of traveling the party ran into a hovel which they heard cries from within and went to go investigate it, upon entering the group ran into a child Ettin and not really knowing what to do with such a creature was arguing about what to do. While arguing the group heard a noise coming from the outside and saw Amelia coming up with a bomb in her hand preparing for the worst. After a quick discussion it was deemed that Amelia was to take the Ettin back to the Burning Blades and train it like she was doing with the Harpy. After gathering their things the two groups headed towards the Thorp. After another 2 days they arrived which Bob (the Ettin) and Amelia separated ways.
The party spending a day in the Thorp re gathered their supplies and traveled into the mine and into the tunnel. After spending about 5 days traveling down the group entered into a very large cavern and saw a city in the distance which was highlighted by lava pouring out of the walls and from what they could tell from out of the city as well. After a quick look about to determine if they were alone the group saw a underground river with something that appeared to be a rock in the middle of the stream. Damakos seeing it threw a rock at it and hit it. After being alerted to the groups location the Troll stood up to it's full height and ran at the party. After a rather long battle the group was able to dispatch the Troll and used fire to cremate the corpse. Damakos tracking the creature found it's footprints heading to a hole in the ground. The group decided to head down into the whole and after about an hour and dodging a few traps they arrived in a room that held a chest and a door with an eye on it. Draco investigating the chest touched it and it revealed itself to be a Mimic that quickly bit down on Draco. After a brief battle the party slew the Mimic and recovered from it's inside a bag, which once identified found out to be a Tanglefoot bag.
After the battle the party went to the door and felt it and realized it was hot, after a quick discussion the party decided to open the door and saw the room was filled with lava and that there was four Kobold's on perches scattered about the room. After a brief discursion with the Kobold's, the party convinced them that they were friends of the person who was in charge and were permitted to go further into the cave. After seeing a incredibly large amount of gold in the next chamber the group realized that they might be dealing with a dragon and prepared themselves for combat much to the Kobold's distrust. After opening another door with and eye on it that felt warm the group was once again led onto a bridge that was over a lave pit that shifted when they put their weight on it, on the far right wall there was a mirror. After looking at the mirror they saw some glowing spots on the opposite doorway and Damakos using his wings flew over and pushed the right one. After pushing the right button the door slammed shut and the lava was rising quickly. Damakos tried the doors but to no avail, and the group tried pulling the doors open also to no avail. The lava reached Damakos dealing a significant amount of damage to him but not killing him as the lava receded the group was able to get the doors open for Damakos to fly thorough. After stablizing the bridge the group, after healing Damakos, sent him in to touch the other button. When he did he heard a click and touched the other button which opened the door.
After the door opened the party headed into the room and saw a bed, 3 rubies implanted in the wall across from them, a bookcase, a strange brain in a jar which had claws, and a circle that was drew into the ground. After doing some quick investigating the party heard a voice in their heads asking them what they were doing in Lazarus chambers. Upon speaking up Leominar felt something slimy touch the back of his head and drew his sword preparing for combat. After some quick words the entity which they where talking to reviled itself to be a Ilithid, that was cast out of his home for being able to use sorcercy. He implored the group to go and kill the High King and Queen of the Duregar City that was in the same cavern that he was located in. After discussing their options the group suggested they just kill the creature and be done with it, it cast a spell as Leominar which he succeed on his saving throw and resisted the effects before blasting and stunning Draco with a mind blast. After the blast Leominar charged the creature and a battle erupted briefly before the party killed it. After noticing that the room temperature was rising they felt the door and realized that lava was pouring out from beneath the door. Ashus seeing this freaked out and started to push random Ruby's on the wall hoping that it would do something and finding the right sequence, the teleportation circle flared to life, after seeing this the party rushed through and found themselves in a dark room.
Hearing noises coming from up stairs they quickly did a search around and found a few casks of ale, which Damakos tried to steal but was unsuccessful in doing so. The party headed up stairs and found a door at the top of the stairs. After listening to the door they came to the conclusion that they were in a tavern and the inhabitants spoke Common and there was also some Elven music playing. After opening the door the group saw a familiar Half-Orc tending to the bar with another fellow, Leominar casting message to Lumomar, to create a distraction who turned and punched the other bartender in the face knocking him over the bar and into the lap of a patron. After seeing this Leominar cast invisibility and walked out of the tavern while a bar fight to start. The rest of the group decided to join the fight and after a while Leominar came back in and cast Calm Emotions to calm the crowd and get them to stop fighting. After the fighting stopped Lumomar joined with the party to head back to the Burning Blades to discuss what had transpired in the 4 or 5 months that they had been gone. The party surprised that they had been gone that long went to their guild hall and spoke to Lady Oeylite. While talking to her there was a knock at the door and when it opened the party saw themselves facing in towards the room while Lady Oeylite and Amelia starred in disbelieve that two of the same party was standing in front of them.
