Kaelos

Obsidians, skeletons, and wights, Oh my!

While continuing our investigation of the tomb below the manner we activate several traps.

On of them summons some very unhappy spirits. We dispatch them with ease but take a couple of bad punches.

Turning to the riddle of the masters tomb we begin to experiment.

Before the experiment can take its full course we decide to deal with the skeletons. We summon the Obsidians and take them downstairs. After a few minutes Nihilus gets impatient and touches the skeleton. They awaken and attack us.

The ceiling begins to threaten to collapse. Our fight in a “burning” building continues until we again emerge victorious.

Turning completely to the puzzle of the tombs we solve it through a bit of trial and error.

Grim very carefully removes the dagger from the masters tomb. And we return to town to sleep.

After a brief meeting with Squirt and Sir Emmet we go shopping and looking for Bobby and Ger.

Bobby sets up a meeting between us and the hobgoblins residing in Kaelosvale.

Ger offers us a choice of gems or a magic dart. We choose the dart for Grim. We informed Ger about the demon and inquired about the dagger from the tomb.

Ger offered us another job looking for a necrobal forge. It is in the city in the mages college. A tunnel is being built by a unscrupulous noble to try to access the forge. Ger wants that stopped by any means necessary. The noble that has commissioned the tunnel visits on Tuesday. The tunnel can be accessed under with a cottage outside the east gate.
