The "disc" is, in fact, some sort of crystal ball sitting on a pedestal. It glows with many-colored light.

This hallway is otherwise unremarkable.

Arcana check to try and determine its function.

The psionic-shaman person walks over to the orb and points out the arcane, draconic design of the pedestal holding the orb.

Myn thinks that the crystal ball is definitely an arcana.

Sureiya can't find much of interest in this room. There is an expensive-looking rug on the ground, and this short hallway is carved from the same off-white ivory-like substance as the rest of the tower.
>> No. 4701 edit
With the aid of the Shaman, Sariel begins inspecting the orb for anything that might hint towards its function--whether by mundane means or magical ones.

While the magic users hopefully find something useful about the orb and the dragon most likely being dominated while they fiddle with it, Michael sheaths his sword and equips his banner instead.

Based on the construction of the pedestal and the look of the device, and the "feel" Sariel can get from it within close contact, the mage concludes that this crystal orb was probably a simple magical device used for communication. One may place their hand on the sphere, and reach out telepathically to someone else "on the other side," where ever that may be. This allows for two-way communication with someone else who has access to a similar device, though the ritual that creates this effect only connects a certain two orbs, so it is not possible to reach out to just anyone.
>> No. 4717 edit
Sariel folds her arms. "So guys, this is a communications device, and we can use it to talk to whoever's on the other side... so whoever the Manipulator was just talking to. What do?"
>> No. 4718 edit
>>4717
"I doubt they'd be anybody we'd want to talk to. Not without being close enough to punch them, anyway."

Myn shakes his head slightly. "If there's a chance that we might learn something, it seems to me that we should at least try to use it."
>> No. 4724 edit

"I don't think that's such a good id-"Too late. Looks like the deed was done.. Michael then remembers there's something like a similar door on the opposite side, and makes a signal to Torinn and Sureiya to check out the door on the opposite end of the room.

When Sariel places her hand on the orb, it becomes slightly warm to the touch, and the colors that constantly swirl within become more intense and swirl at a more rapid rate. In a few seconds, Sariel hears a rather demanding masculine voice in her head: "Who in the hells are you?! What have you done with Largan?!"

Sureiya and Michael had over to the eastern door, with Torinn backing them up. The door itself is pretty much the same as the one opposite it--there are no traps on it that you can see.
>> No. 4732 edit
Sariel sighs, then telepathically returns, "I believe it would be most proper if you'd identify yourself first... as for me, I'm merely an unlucky passerby who happened to get into a disagreeable encounter with your compatriots down here.

"I was hoping their allies would be more willing to speak before drawing weapons; I do so hate bloodshed." I wonder if he knows there's more of us here?

"Yes? Well, you may be surprised as to how few 'unlucky passerbys' we encounter inside a tower that has been sealed and guarded against all intrusion by automatons!" the "voice" on the other end of the crystal ball replies in a rather agitated voice. "This tower belongs to the followers of the Sacred One! If you are not one of us, you will be destroyed should you attempt to proceed any further!"
>> No. 4738 edit
>>4737
Sariel shrugs, belatedly realising the other probably would miss the import of the gesture. Not being able to see, and all.

"Oh? I have it on good authority you're trying to actually subjugate the dragon of this tower here, now."

Sariel turns to the rest of the party and says softly to Myn and Bern, "These guys are all ready to declare holy war on us or something. You guys aren't opposed to cleansing this tower of morons, are you?"

Regardless of answers, she continues telepathically, "So alright, how would I go about becoming 'one of you'?"

"You will allow me to speak with one of them, or this conversation ends! I will hear no more of your poison!" the "voice" replies, sounding like it's just about had enough of this. Well, as much as such an emotion can come across telepathically.

"Permit me a moment to realise your request."

Sariel disengages the telepathic link, stepping out towards the open.

Sariel, ignoring the Warlock's uncanny ability to intercept telepathic waves, relates the conversation to the Shaman (and the rest of the group should they deign to come closer).

>> No. 4752 edit
Sariel frowns. "Well, maybe if we had something like a cat or whatever that'd be exceptionally good at sneaking...

"Well... how about this?"

The shaman gestures to the warlock's companion imp.

Myn blinks once, lightly grabbing the imp hovering near his shoulder and dangling it in the center of the group.

"Certainly, this thing possesses the art of invisibility, although sustained use should be impossible. I would surmise that it should be sufficient for a brief task of surveillance."

Torinn squints at the tiny imp, "Perhaps, if it knows how to do the task and relay what it has seen. Does it talk?"

"Worry not, I am both able to direct and communicate with it."

She watches as her spirit briefly attempts to infuse the imp, though it would appear that the imp has little use for combat.

The former cultists scratches his head and says, "I could... but I don't think they'd buy it, coming from me. Maybe if it was the dragon or Largan... heck, I doubt they even know my name, and I'd rather keep it that way, so they don't have reason to come after me later."

"You're asking the wrong person... I'm not really that good with words. But I'll try to give you a basic overview..." the cultist stammers. "We--they follow the prophecy of the archmage Sammaster, who predicted that Faerun would once prosper under the eternal rule of undead dragons. Already, dragons rise to prominent positions all over Faerun... or so the rumors say. Never actually seen any evidence of that myself. Anyway, the cult followers are spreading to major cities in order to locate dragons and offer them eternal life in undeath. If they refuse, they are subjugated. They remain secretive because their goals and methods are not exactly sanctioned by most civilized areas... not everyone is willing to rally behind undead dragons, even if they are told that they will be forced to eventually either way."

Meanwhile, Michael opens the door to the east, revealing a small room just past a short passage. The room has another decorative rug, and a low ceiling, but is filled with four bookcases. This room appears to have been ransacked, as the bookcases are nearly empty and there are books and loose paper scattered all over the floor. Nothing else seems to be within the room.

"Well, if I had to guess, they've probably set up some traps up ahead," the once-cultist explains. "Also, many of us came here, though Largan over there," he indicates the dragonborn, "was the highest-ranking aside from the Wearer of Purple and Kollirtza, the undead dragon. I imagine they're up near the top of the tower, where they said the metal dragon was likely to be. Galvang, Hallvan... Halvangh, I think they said the dragon's name was?"

"The Wearer of Purple... I don't know his name, but he's the leader of this cell of the cult. He'll be the one that performs the ritual to bind the dragon... Kollirtza is just here to watch over things," the human goes on.

Sureiya: (Perception): There appear to be no other living creatures in the room, and no traps that you can find. The only notable contents of the room are the bookshelves themselves, the stools, and the mess of books and papers scattered over the ground. Many of the pages are torn, as if someone had ransacked the place and removed important information from the books on the ground. The loose pages are trampled and dirty, but there might be a few of value if someone skilled in reading the languages they were written in was present. Several of the texts were written using the Dethek script, others using Thorass script, mostly a collection of common and giant. However, some are in a language you do not recognize, yet the symbols bear a vague resemblance to the runes you have seen on the many magic circles you have encountered as of late.
>> No. 4793 edit
>>4791
Overhearing from the other side of the room that it's worse as previously fought, Michael hope what's left of these books can be salvaged to help them. Seeing that Sureiya might see something he doesn't, he decides to ask,"So, ranger, anything you can tell of what's left here?"
>> No. 4794 edit
"Geez, those guys sure went crazy here.
Apparently they started removing information from a lot of books. There are a few I can't read."
Sureiya now take a few books of those language he can't recognize and show them to the Cavalier.
"Hey, can you read any of this?"
>> No. 4798 edit

"So, whatshisface.. That guy with the staff.. Never told us there was a dragon in this tower, just a wizard. If there's a dragon here now, what's become of that wizard?"Michael asks, not remembering the name of said wizard.

While Torinn is able to recognize a scant few of the writings as draconic, it is actually Sariel that recognizes most of them--these arcane symbols are the kind that are used in ritual books.
>> No. 4800 edit
Sariel, with a flick of her ghost hand, pilfers the books with the runic writing, placing them in her arms rather than the Dragonborn's.

"Ritual books," she mentions, by way of clarification, eyeing them curiously. "Also, if we're done here, let's kick some wacky cultists out of our tower."

Sariel quickly determines that these pages are incomplete, and of little value on their own. However, there could be more back in the room that Sureiya did not pick up, though a more thorough search of the room and the bookshelves would be required.

From the draconic writings, Torinn can also notice that they are mostly incomplete, and appear to be historical recordings. They tell bits and pieces of the history of Faerun.

Smiling at the shaman, Myn walks over to the base of the stairs, relinquishing his grasp on the book imp and depositing it in the air in front of him.

Torinn doesn't find much of interest in the draconic texts--they appear to be almost exclusively histories. However, together, Sureiya and Torinn find a number of pages containing the arcane writings they saw before. It appears that some of these might have actually have been scrolls, rather than books.

While most of them are clearly torn in such a way that renders them completely unusable, there should be at least a handful of useful scrolls in here, should a learned eye get a look at them.

Some of the pages are pages from a ritual book, and contain actual usable rituals--though only two seem complete enough to use, one being comrade's succor, and the other being knock. However, Sariel would need an extended rest to study these rituals and copy them to her book.

There are three usable scrolls, however--two scrolls of comrade's succor, and one scroll of hand of fate.

The other texts appear to be histories and studies on nature and magic, though nothing the party regards as new or extremely interesting. The wizard probably keeps the good stuff in a more secure location.

The imp, appearing rather indignant, brushes itself off and turns invisible before fluttering up the stairway.

After a few moments, it returns, and informs the warlock that it passed through some sort of barrier of magical darkness, then observed several levels that were inaccessible from the central stairway, each comprised of railed, circular paths lining the sides of the room. Each of these paths led to several other doors. However, the only path that seemed accessible from the central stairway was one that seemed about halfway up, and went in a single direction to a large set of double-doors. The imp could not quite reach the path, due to being constrained to a mere 100 feet from the warlock.
>> No. 4819 edit
Myn pokes at the imp upon its return, harassing it briefly about its range constraints.

"...it seems that there's some manner of barrier ahead, although this thing was able to pass through it without trouble. There do not appear to be any more enemies in the immediate vicinity, so I'll go a bit further up to see if I can gain any more information."

Move up to just before the barrier and examine it.
Send book imp to scout invisibly as far as it can from that point.

Sariel sighs and shakes her head.

"Useless, it's all useless," she mentions, casually putting the scrolls in her Bag of Holding, same with the pages.

Actually...

"Hey, guys, get over here for a moment," Sariel says, producing one of the scrolls of Comrade's Succor and commencing the necessary steps to produce its results; preferably activating it once everyone's gathered around her close enough to be affected by the ritual.

Myn has to ascend quite a distance before encountering the "barrier," about 80 feet (16 squares). It appears as a black cloud of sorts that blocks vision from below and makes the elevated walkways on the sides of the tower difficult to see. The imp simply passes through the darkness without incident, and is able to explore as far as the double doors without encountering any enemies or hazards. Of course, the familiar cannot open the doors on its own.

The party ascends the stairs, passes the magical darkness without incident, and begins to gather on the walkway in front of the set of double-doors.

These doors have a more intricate design than the previous sets, and do not appear to have a handle to open. You may need to push inwards on them to open. There are a number of designs traced in the hard, off-white, marble-like material they are carved from, with the designs themselves generally of geometric shapes, colored gold and silver.

Sureiya thinks for a moment that the door is just like the others in the dungeon thus far--but then feels something "off" about the design on the door. It's quite possible that this is actually some sort of warding trap... it should be disrupted before entry is attempted.

It is necessary to make a Thievery check in order to attempt to disable the ward. A successful hard DC Arcana check will provide an Aid Another bonus to Sureiya, but otherwise, Aid Another is not permitted for characters not trained in Arcana or Thievery.
Be warned that a failed attempt will certainly activate the trap.

With the aid of the wizard and warlock, Sureiya is able to skillfully chip away at the warder trap and open the door.

What is revealed on the other side is more of the same architecture that you should be quite familiar with in this tower: solid, off-white walls, a fairly high ceiling, and brilliant illumination. There are some fancy rugs on the ground, are per the usual, but this particular room appears to be in as much upheaval as the previous study you entered.

There are a good many wooden bookshelves that are of superior craftsmanship (perhaps dwarven or high elven), and many of them are still filled with a decent amount of books, though they are not nearly full as the majority of the books are now scattered on the floor. Several of the rugs also appear to have been taken off the floor and cast aside, as if this room was ransacked in a hurry. You cannot see all of the room from your current position, though it is quite quiet inside.

Bernkastel's search of the rugs doesn't reveal anything of interest, but once further inside, she is able to see three arcane circles to the north, and another one of the strange stone formations with glowing panels and arcane designs that you saw before--another "arcane control panel."

In addition, there is a desk with an ever-burning candle resting on it to the east, and a larger reading area near the magic circles. The entire area appears tossed and in disarray.

Upon accessing the arcane panel, Bernkastel determines that this device has something to do with the nearby magic circles, which are most likely teleportation circles to access other areas of the tower. However, the shaman is unable to activate the circles, and she can't figure out why. Perhaps someone with a bit more arcane knowledge could answer that question...?

When Myn gets a look at the control panels and the arcane circles, he concludes that the magic that binds the circles to their destination points has been forcibly disrupted. Perhaps someone didn't want anyone from below navigating the tower.

Torinn and Sureiya search the books, and mostly find them to be a collection of studies on common arcane practices, along with a few more histories. The languages they are written in mostly include common, Chondathan (a common language for people of the west), and Giant. There are a scarce few Draconic texts as well. There's nothing really ground-breaking or interesting amongst the books, certainly no ritual books or scrolls like you found before.

It could be possible to derive more information from the panel. It suggests that there is a trigger device for another exit somewhere in this room.

In one of the bookcases on the eastern side of the room, the shaman notes a suspicious-looking "slot" in the back of the shelf, that looks like it was made to fit an especially large book. It's not a very obvious depression, and took some real searching to find.

When Torinn moves into the small room, he is not assaulted by any traps or hazards, at least not immediately. Instead, he sees a number of chests lying on the ground, and a large vase-like container on the right wall. The chests do not appear to be locked.

Searching through the remaining chests and the container reveals the following treasures:

* A monocle made from a polished diamond lens in a gold frame, with hooked and pierced side-handle, but without a ribbon or cord (1000 gp art object)
* 3 ready-made Healing Infusions

During a short rest, any of you can use one of the healing infusions to regain hit points equal to your healing surge value. This does not count as spending a surge, and the healing infusion is expended in the process.

Torinn and Sureiya are the first two up the stairs. They find themselves in a very small room, devoid of much of anything other than the stairs down, and a lantern hanging from the top of the low ceiling (only about 15' up).

In front of them to the north is what appears to be a solid wall, though it "shimmers" faintly, as if it's not real stone. Torinn can just barely feel air passing in from the other side as well, and the sound of the adventurers' own footsteps echoes farther than it should.

Myn: (Arcana) This appears to be another teleportation circle. Going by the runes inscribed herein, you are quite sure that it is linked to the circles you saw before, that were not functioning. The magic here is somehow suppressed--as if it was disabled from elsewhere in the tower. It would be possible to reactivate it if you possessed dispelling magic, or perhaps defeated the being that placed the warding spell (some might call it a curse) on this circle.

Before Sureiya heads down the hall, he notices what appears to be several bits of the ground beneath that are separate from the rest, the outlines of square-shaped panels just barely visible in the smooth, off-white floor beneath him. They seems as though they'd press down if stepped on by a creature of sufficient mass.

In addition, there are two similar panels in the ceiling at the end of the hall (the ceiling here is about 5 squares/25 feet high, and the two panels are at L/M-4).

Dungeoneering to guess at what kind of traps these might be. A DC10 Athletics check will allow you to jump over a square without triggering the pressure plate. The DC increases if you must jump over multiple squares. You could also attempt to disable the pressure plate with Thievery if you are adjacent to the plate, though it's a separate check for each plate.

"Guys, these cultists love their traps. There are some strange plates on the ground just a few meters from here. Also, I can barely see something strange on the ceiling about the end of the hall. I could try to remove the panels, but it would be nice if we could know what they do."

Myn's imp invisibly zips past the floor panels, and out into the room. It sees a number of bookshelves, a ladder, and a rug on the ground, leading up to a large set of double-doors. The imp quickly returns and relates this information back to the warlock in their secret language.

Sureiya thinks this is a common setup for an automated crossbow trap--the floor panels trigger the activation of automated crossbow turrets that are hidden in panels in the ceiling, which descend a short distance and fire upon invaders. The traps are capable of magically distinguishing between friend and foe. Of course, there could be other traps, but the combination of ceiling panels and floor-activated pressure plates indicates this is the trap at work here. The only curious thing to note is the large number of pressure plates.

As Sureiya leaps over the pressure plates and presses himself against the wall, he hears the sound of heavy breathing from several creatures in the other room. The breathing sounds raspy and unnatural. From the patterns, the ranger can keenly identify at least three different creatures positioned at various points in the room.

At this point, I'll ask you to post what you have in your hands as far as weapons/implements/shields goes, and you can reposition yourselves slightly and within reason--only Sureiya has made the checks necessary to bypass the pressure plates. We'll be acting in Initiative order after you all post such information.

Sureiya hears the creatures shuffling about up there, and thinks he catches the tiniest glimpse of a humanoid in advance decay behind the lower-west bookshelf before it vanihses from sight, though it has apparently remained at its position.

Unfortunately, this distraction is enough such that the half-orc loses track of the other creature he was aware of to the north-east.

Sureiya leans forward and peers into the room, listening for anything suspicious. The ranger's keen hearing detects the presence of a few other creatures in addition to the three he already knew of, hiding behind the various bookshelves in the darkness. He also detects two additional pressure plates in the middle of the room, and a large section of the floor appears separated from the rest--a clear sign of some sort of pit trap.

Unfortunately, the half-orcs attempt at thievery sets off one of the sets of pressure plates, and two panels in the wall in the primary room open, revealing a pair of turrets surely soon begin firing on the invaders.

The shaman conjures a psionic anomaly amidst the hidden foes, but as far as she can tell the first attack was not a rousing success. The ranger briefly hears some movement, and loses track of one of the foes.

One of the recently-activated turrets fires, lodging a crossbow bolt firmly in the shaman's shoulder.

Bernkastel moves and uses her psychic anomaly.
At the start of ??? 4's turn, Bernkastel's psychic anomaly misses it (rolled 5 + 8 = 13 vs. Will).

Torinn easily clears the trap and moves further into the room. However, he can't get close enough to attack anything, so he takes a defensive stance close to the ranger.

The dragonborn moves out front and activates his magical sword, illuminating the surroundings with light. He then adopts a defensive stance.

From behind the northeast bookcase emerges an undead cultist in somewhat ragged-looking clothing, carrying a rod and smelling of death. It is so wrapped in ragged robes and a tattered cloak and in such advanced decay that it is difficult to tell what kind of humanoid it was in life, but it is about the size of a smaller human. This ghoulish creature calls out in a raspy voice, "Now, attack, my brothers, and feast on the flesh of the living!" With this, the monstrosity points its rod towards the clustered adventurers and conjures a choking cloud of grave dust, imbued with unholy energies that sear the warlock, the psionic shaman, and the mage quite severely, though Michael manages to avoid the worst of it. The cloud lingers, threatening further harm. From the darkness, a lightning-fast undead figure rampages out, heading directly for the eladrin, and pounces towards the mage. However, Sariel deftly evades the creature's lunge, and it springs back, looking quite annoyed. This creature is one of the undead Sureiya saw before--spindly, lithe, and more beast-like than humanoid, though still vaguely human-sized. It crouches rather than standing tall, as if it could pounce at any moment. From the darkness, there is a stir as the shaman feels her anomaly affect the mind of an unseen foe, though it slips out of all of their senses shortly thereafter.

The two lurking ghasts emerge and charge down the mage and shaman, each of them biting viciously into their targets at the end of their rush. The two humanoid girls feel a chill run through their bodies and freeze them in place as they tear free of the ghastly bites of the undead creatures. Both are looking in pretty bad shape.

Torinn advances and uses total defense, gaining a +2 bonus to all defenses.
Cultist adept hits Sariel, Bernkastel, CRITS Myn, and misses Michael with grave dust. Sariel and Bernkastel take 17 necrotic damage damage, Myn takes 19 necrotic damage, and the burst creates a zone that deals 5 necrotic damage to living creatures that enter or end their turn in the zone.
Torinn uses righteous shield to take the 17 necrotic damage in Bernkastel's place. Torrin gains a +2 power bonus to attack rolls until the end of his next turn.
Sariel uses channeling shield to reduce the damage dealt to her by 7.
Ghoul flesh seeker 1 misses Sariel with prepare for sacrifice.
Bernkastel's psychic anomaly hits ??? 3 for 10 psychic damage, and it is dazed until the end of Bernkastel's next turn.
Ghast 1's bite hits Benrkastel for 10 damage, and Bernkastel is immobilized until the end of its next turn.

"Okay... now!"

Eager for battle, the elemental spirit pulls out its signature blue scythe, and charges the enemy; the spirit companion follows up with a slash of its ceremonial hoe, coating the cultist in fiery sand and leaving it vulnerable.

Despite her present condition, the shaman remains cool under fire and conjures her spirits to attend to healing, then moves them into positions before dispersing their powers to great effect--the elemental spirit first catches the adept off-guard with a staggering forceful blow, then the companion spirit scorches it with a searing flame, which exposes it to further fiery attacks. In the same motion, it imbues the weapons of the nearby paladin and ranger with fire, which Sureiya immediately puts to good use in cutting bloody wounds in the caster, who now appears quite wounded.

One of the hidden ghouls leaps from its hiding place and slams the unsuspecting half-orc to the ground. Sureiya finds himself in quite the bind as he is pinned down to the ground, unable to escape unless he can first shake this ghoul off him, and the ghoulish enemy is now brandishing the knife it is holding threateningly...

Meanwhile, the automated crossbow turret takes a pot shot at Torinn but misses.

Bernkastel is slowed until the end of the ghast's next turn.
Bernkastel's healing spirit allows Sariel to regain 2 hit points and her to spend a surge and regain 9 hit points.
Bernkastel also regains 4 hit points from Michael's inspiring presence.
Bernkastel uses her spirit of athas attack against cultist adept, which hits for 12 damage and imposes upon it a -2 attack and defense penalty until the end of her next turn. She then uses an action point to attack with scorching sands, dealing 7 fire damage and inflicting vulnerable 5 fire on the adept until the end of her next turn. In addition, Bernkastel, Sureiya, and Torinn can deal fire damage with their attacks until the end of Bernkastel's next turn.
Sureiya's readied twin strike goes off, inflicting 20 damage with the first hit (master's blade reroll, quarry damage, and furious assault damage included), which bloodies the adept and allows the second attack to deal 16 damage.
Bernkastel takes 5 necrotic damage for ending her turn in grave dust.
Ghoul flesh seeker 2 pops out of hiding and rushes Sureiya. Due to the fact that both Sureiya and Sariel have used immediate actions this round (readied action is an immediate reaction), they cannot interrupt this. Its prepare for sacrifice hits Sureiya for 12 damage, and Sureiya is grabbed and prone. He takes a -2 penalty to escape the grab and cannot stand from prone until he escapes.
Automated crossbow turret attacks Torinn but misses.

Moving out of the choking grave dust, Myn attempts twice to finish off the adept, but cannot seem to land a blast on the surprisingly nimble undead creature. He settles for cursing it and gaining a small resilience boost from the warlord's presence.

Myn uses eldritch blast and misses the cultist adept.
Myn spends an action point! He regains 4 hit points from Michael's inspiring presence. But he misses again.
Sariel begins its turn next to a ghast and is therefore slowed until the ned of the ghast's next turn.

All that Sureiya knows about these ghoul flesh-seekers is that they are lurkers, preferring to strike from an unseen position when attacking. They're not all that hardy, though, being only level 4. Once in the open, they should be a simple matter to take down. Sureiya has never seen a spellcaster like the adept.

Sariel huffs from the pain she's received, scanning the conjurative zone with her probing magics to determine its secrets.

Meanwhile she summons tendrils from the floor, lashing at the nearby enemies and latching on them.

Sariel's attempt at detecting magic only identifies the properties of the zone of grave dust the adept created--a magical, swirling void of dust that is infused with necrotic energy, that will disperse under the normal conditions for such magical zones.

The mage creates an illusionary zone of horrifying shadows, which can only be seen by two of the ghasts (the ghoul is not fooled by the illusion). These shadows claw at the ghasts and tear at their limbs, making them believe for a short time they are too wounded to move quickly.

However, Sariel can't escape the dust, which saps at her life-force even as she creates a speck of light in the distance.

Sariel identifies the grave dust zone, which deals necrotic damage to creatures that end their turns in the zone. It will disappear after about five minutes or when the caster that created it dies.
Sariel's grasping shadows misses the ghoul flesh seeker but hits both ghasts for 12 psychic damage and they are slowed until the end of Sariel's next turn.
Sariel uses light, which illuminates a bit of the path ahead (though the bookshelf still blocks your view of some squares due to your positioning).

Calling out to the heavily wounded mage grants the eladrin the strength to fight on, while the warlord himself moves into the fray and strikes the skulking ghoul heartily, tearing out a good chunk of its torso. It growls angrily.

One of the crossbow bolts files a bolt at Torinn, but it doesn't even come close to hitting.

Michael's inspiring word allows Sariel to spend a surge and regain 21 hit points.
Michael's warlord's strike hits ghoul flesh-seeker 1 for 11 damage, and all of his allies gain a +4 bonus to damage rolls against the ghoul flesh-seeker until the end of his next turn.

"They walked. Right. By. Me."

Torinn roars at the undead and rears his head back. The dragonborn torches the group harassing his comrades, engraving a brilliant mark upon their souls that threatens to sear them if they attacked his friends again. The dragonborn shifts up and hefts his blade, spearing the cultist with divine light before slicing it in half with a blazing attack.

Torinn beckons for the remaining undead to come at him.

Torinn reels back and breaths lightning over the gathered undead before turning on the adept and striking him down with a mix of fire and radiance. All of the undead are threatened now, and the last hidden flesh-seeker scratches futility at the dragonborn's plate, trying to pin him down but failing.

One of the ghasts attempts to disembowel the psionic shaman, suffering Torinn's radiance, but Sariel quickly teleports the offending undead away, wherein its devouring bite ends up taking a chunk out of a ghoul. The fall then suddenly falls out from beneath this ghast, and it barely leaps away before it gives way to a pit of bubbling acid.

The other ghoul attempts to bite the shaman as well, but fails, suffering holy judgment in turn.

The half-orc is still pinned down and staring a ghoulish figure in the face, however.

Torinn's lightning breath hits the ghoul flesh-seeker 1, ghast 1, and ghast 2 for 7 lightning damage (11 against the flesh-seeker) and they are sanctioned until the end of his next turn.
Torinn's valiant strike with holy smite deals 15 fire damage and 11 radiant damage to the cultist adept, rendering it very dead.
Ghoul flesh-seeker 1 misses Torinn with claw.
Ghoul flesh-seeker 3 misses Torinn with prepare for sacrifice.
Ghast 1 uses devouring bite against Bernkastel, taking 12 radiant damage from Torinn's divine sanction. Sariel uses dimensional vortex which hits ( http://invisiblecastle.com/roller/view/3187995/ ), teleporting it to G-7, where it hits ghoul flesh-seeker 2 for 19 damage.

The half-orc wriggle out of the flesh-seeker's grasp and desperately attempts to slash at it, though of the three attacks only one connects. This is enough to leave the ghoul looking severely wounded, however, enough that Myn is able to absorb a portion of its life-force into his growing aura.

Sureiya successfully escapes.
Sureiya's off-hand strike misses ghoul flesh-seeker 2.
Sureiya's twin strike misses ghoul flesh-seeker 2 once and hits once for 12 fire damage. This bloodies it and Myn's darkspiral aura increases by 1.

With a fiery burst, the shaman tries to blast three of the undead into the newly-formed pit. Two of them manage to hang on, but one is looking like it will just fall over with another attack, and the tough ghast is teleported high over the pit, which it then unceremoniously falls into, landing in the bubbling acid with a splash and an accompanying scream.

The ghoul, seeing no other options, claws at Torinn and manages a lucky hit (perhaps the dragonborn over-extended himself earlier?), chilling the paladin enough so that it cannot move. The crossbow turret also fires a shot, which plugs the cavalier in the shoulder.

Bernkastel's dimensional scramble hits ghast 1, ghoul flesh-seeker 2, and ghoul flesh-seeker 3 for 12 fire damage and attempts to teleport them a distance. The flesh-seekers save against being teleported into a hazardous area, but the ghast does not, and it falls and takes 17 falling damage.
Ghoul flesh-seeker's claw hits Torinn for 7 damage and Torinn is immobilized (save ends).
Automated crossbow turret 3 attacks Torinn and hits for 10 damage.

Sariel conjures her winged horde of bees, wasps and other nasty insects to lay siege to the bastions of sanity that are assaulting the Paladin and his compadres.

After all, if she can't brutalise their bodies, she'll brutalise the minds. No better destruction than that of someone's mental faculties; her master had taught her well in that respect.

As for the nearby enemy, Sariel brandishes her blade and imposes her Swordmage's mark on him to prevent further damage to allies, while simultaneously shifting away to near the protective aura of Bernkastel's spirit.


Standard: Winged Horde on Torinn.

At Sariel's command, a horde of illusionary warriors descends and sets upon the gathered flesh-seekers. One collapses from pure battle fatigue after being drained by this attack, and one looks just about ready to fall apart.

The eladrin then places her aegis on the nearby ghast and shifts away.

Sariel's winged horde hits the three ghoul flesh-seekers for 3 psychic damage. The damage against ghoul flesh-seeker 1 increases to 7 because of Michael, and ghoul flesh-seeker 2 dies again.

Imbuing his weapon with radiant energy, Torinn delivers a fatal blow to the last of the lanky-looking ghouls with daggers. The ghast in the pit sizzles as the acid takes its toll on the poor creature, and it stands up before starting to claw its way up the nearest wall. The other ghast, placed under the swordmage's aegis, moves over to the mage and bites down hard on the eladrin's slender arm.

Torinn's strike of hope hits the ghoul flesh-seeker 3 for 12 radiant damage, and his holy smite inflicts 11 radiant damage to it, destroying it.
Torinn saves against being immobilized.
Ghast 1 takes 15 acid damage, then stands from prone crawls its way up the pit wall.
Ghast 2 shifts and uses bite on Sariel, dealing 10 damage, and Sariel is immobilized until the end of its next turn.

The half-orc hurls his twin blades at the damaged turret, and it appears quite close to being no longer functional now. Meanwhile, the psionic shaman messes a bit with the fabric of reality near one of the ghasts, depositing it in the entry hall and then blocking it with her spirits.

Bernkastel then determines that the crossbow turret has 6 HP remaining.

Having regained his bearings, Myn moves up to the edge of the pit, looking down at the climbing enemy with a smile and a sense of superiority. He intensifies his glare, sending a wave of psychic energy towards its endpoint at the ghast.

Move action: Move to I-8.
Standard action: Cast Spiteful Glamor against Ghast 1.

When the warlock causes a bit of psychic damage on the climbing ghast, it explodes violently, releasing an unstoppable torrent of necrotic energy that, all the cover, catches both Myn and Sureiya in full-force (Torinn manages to withstand the blast without any ill effects). The half-elf and the half-orc both feel the necrotic attack continuing to sap their respective life-forces, even as the battle continues.

Myn's spiteful glamor hits ghast 1 for 34 psychic damage.
Ghast 1's death burst hits Myn for 11 necrotic damage and CRITS Sureiya for 17 necrotic damage, both take ongoing 5 necrotic damage (save ends), despite superior cover. It misses Torinn.
Sureiya gains 5 temporary HP from half-orc resilience.

With Sariel unsure what to do, the warlord takes a step back from the one creature left alive, as to avoid it exploding on him, before directing Myn to attack one of the barely hanging on crossbows, hoping that he'll hit this time.

With the warlord-directed blast of eldritch energy, Myn causes the crossbow turret fizzles violently and stop functioning.

Michael uses direct the strike, which allows Myn to use eldritch strike. He hits automated crossbow turret 4 for 26 damage, destroying it.

Sariel defends herself from further attack, though the crossbow turret adjusts its targeting and fires a bolt at the half-orc, scoring a rather palpable hit. Torinn retaliates by hurling his throwing blade at the trap, striking it rather soundly in turn.

The ghast takes a futile swipe at the shaman's spirit, then adjusts its positioning, growling and snarling with rage. Sureiya feels the ghast's death effect slowly sapping his strength...

Sariel uses total defense.
Advanced automated crossbow turret 3 attacks Sureiya, and he attempts to intervene with disruptive strike but fails horribly ( http://invisiblecastle.com/roller/view/3190713/ ). It hits for 11 damage.
Torinn uses a ranged basic attack against the advanced automated crossbow turret 3, which hits for 13 damage.
Ghast 2 uses bite against the spirit companion, but misses.
Sureiya takes ongoing 5 necrotic damage.

Bernkastel's spirit moves accross the battlefield long enough to infuse energy into Myn, allowing him to blow apart one of the crossbow turrets, before swiftly disappearing and reforming before the ghast.

Michael and Myn defer to Sariel, who blasts the ghast with a searing orb of light, leaving it bedazzled for the warlock to dazzle it further with a mind-blasting gaze attack.

Bernkastel uses spirit infusion, and Myn's eldritch blast deals 41 damage to the crossbow turret, destroying it. The trap is now completely disabled.
Some people delay.
Sariel's color orb hits the ghast for 17 radiant damage, which bloodies it. It is also dazed until the end of her next turn.
Myn's spiteful glamor hits the ghast for 29 psychic damage.

"Very well, then," Sariel responds, giving a nod to the others as she chases after the Warlock.

When they are at the bookcase, she casually grabs a book and begins leafing through it, using the power of her spell to continue a whispered conversation with Myn.


"I can't help but notice, Warlock, that you have the stench of the Drow on them, and the magic you borrow even more so."

She leaves it at that, observing him from the corners of her eyes. It was just as well before, but his aura is honestly frightening by this point.

Myn grabs a book as well, absentmindedly flipping through the pages as he speaks in a low voice.

"Certainly, it's undeniable that the source of this magic is the Underdark, although I learned of it from no Drow. Does it concern you, Miss Sariel?"

"Quite. No good comes from the Underdark." She nonchalantly tosses the book aside and reaches for another.

"You've given me no reason yet to doubt you, Warlock. I wish only to warn you not to change this.

"Our Paladin friend there, witless as though he may be, may be rather less understanding of your dealings with the Underworld." With those words, the spell fades out of existence.

With the battle standard planted, the group begins to take a rest while Myn searches the surroundings. These books appear to be various works of fiction, written in Chondathan, Draconic, Giant, and a scant few in Common and Elven.

Sariel and Torinn find more of the books that Myn found.

The healing infusions are rounded cylinders about the size of a football, made of a clear, glass-like material and shiny metallic "caps" on either end. Inside the infusion you can see a softly glowing and bubbly light blue liquid. On one cap is a small "egress," like where you might attach a needle if it were a syringe, and the opposite cap can be turned. They work by placing the small hole against the flesh of the intended recipient and twisting the top cap. This activates the magic within, and the liquid is dispersed, filling the recipient with healing energy.

Sariel puts one of the books in her bag of holding without paying attention to the type or what tale is in it. The Eladrin spends some time further examining the bookcases, then proceeds back to the rest. She spends a healing surge to recover, then examines the door.

"Are we ready to continue?"

Sariel manages to find a lot of books, but can't locate anything that is hidden or out of the ordinary. Her sense of history tells her that these books were of varying degrees of popularity in the west during the pre-Spellplague era, but many of them are unknown amongst all but the most learned of scholars nowadays.

Her sense of the arcane turns up nothing in particular about the books, though the double-doors in front of her are of slightly different design than most you have seen in the tower. The only significant difference, however, seems to be that the doors will open more slowly when activated.

The shaman puts her ear to the door, listening for noises of note. Hearing nothing of interest, she steps back for the front line.

Meanwhile, the spirit companion uses the time to grant a small boon to each ally.

For the first moment, the room ahead of you (that appears to be made of exactly the same material as the rest of the tower and is pretty much the exact same style of the rest of the tower, SHUT UP ITS THE SAME) is largely empty, except for the presence of a skeletal dragon whose innards glow with grayish necrotic energy, and four hunched skeletal dragonborn. Just as you notice the fact that the middle of the room is separated from the rest by walls that are approximately 50' high, with pale green illumination filling the room from braziers placed along the outer walls, you also notice the blueish orbs lining the circle glow with power and fill the whole circle with a strange energy.

You also notice an eladrin mage in purple robes near the back. The robes have a golden trim, and though the figure is somewhat feminine, it seems to be a male eladrin (this is somewhat common amongst the eladrin). He says, "It is done, Kollritza. Now, I take my leave."

In a female, echoing voice that is clearly powered by fell energies rather than vocal cords, the dracolich replies, "Yes, back to your work. I will deal with these interlopers...!" With this, the dragon bears down at you and gestures, and the skeletal dragonborn assume fighting stances.

The dracolich servants are simple minions that obey their master's commands without question. In life they were stalwart dragonborn warriors, and in death they continue their charge, using their new scythe-like hand-claws to disrupt any enemy that would attempt to harm their allies.

Bernkastel knows that the wearer of purple, Talar, primarily attacks by calling down meteorites on foes. Its disrupting presence ruins the concentration of nearby enemies, and it possesses the typical eladrin traits of charm resilience and a teleportation power. In addition, the eladrin can charm enemies with a gaze attack, and foil attempts to move into melee while simultaneously damaging those who try.

Myn: (Arcana) You believe that this strange barrier is similar to the old-style anti-magic fields, though much more primitive and difficult to set up. It will block most magical effects from the outside from affecting the inside, but likewise, magical effects from the inside cannot affect things outside. While it is not possible to create conjurations or zones or the like inside the zone from outside, it is possible to form them and move them inside, though the owners will lose control of the effects and they will dissipate quickly unless the caster moves within the field. The field is sustained by the power of the orbs, but probably won't last a very long time--just long enough for the caster to complete his task, whatever that may be, most likely.

As the various adventurers spring into action, Sariel feels as though she cannot "focus" enough on what is in the field to create illusions within. She is able to immediately grasp, however, that within the field, her vision would be much clearer...

Bernkastel and Sureiya notice a sort of panel on the wall behind the dragon, concealing something. Likely a control panel of some kind, from the looks of it. There is also a set of stairs behind the eladrin spellcaster, leading upward.

Sureiya lets his blades fly, cutting down two of the minions straight away. The dracolich laughs at this, "Ah, you like my handiwork, do you, dragonling?" And turns to the half-orc. "A worthy effort, but futile."

The dracolich gestures, and flame-like shadows descend upon one of the fallen minions. Its bones stir, and then revitalize. "Do you see how the shadows empower them...? They fight at my command, and can never be truly destroyed!"

One of the other servants charges at the half-orc, but misses. Sureiya still feels threatened by its presence, however, as if it will attack him should he attempt to ignore it. The dracolich uses its reanimating shadows to revitalize another one of the minions, "Do you not see, mortals? It is futile to resist. You should flee now, while you still can! Halvangh's secrets are ours for the taking!"

Sureiya's twin strike destroys dracolich servants 1 and 4.
Dracolich acoylye's instinctive reanimation allows it to use reanimating shadows and restore dracolich servant 1 with 5 temporary HP.
Dracolich servant 3 charges Sureiya but misses. Sureiya is marked until the end of its next turn.

Torinn moves away from the skeleton, treading towards the prize lurking in the center of the room. Gripping his blade tightly, he seethes, "Even in death your vile kind seeks to enslave us, make us serve under you as though you earnestly believe yourselves superior to us. Is there no end to your despicable deeds, you overgrown bony newt?" Light lances from his blade and pierces the dracolich through the empty space where its heart would beat. Rutger rears back, and Torinn raises his sword, aglow with divine light as the blade follows the arc of light.

"I say there is an end!" he howls, charging the beast with everything he has and slamming his full weight behind the strike, eyes burning with righteous indignation as the blade bites deep into its vile dark being. "And the name of the Platinum Dragon, Bahamut," A freezing mist swirls around the dragonborn's sword, coating it in a thick layer of ice that makes it look more like a large club then a blade. A mist comes off of the sword, swirling towards the ground in the shape of the platinum dragon's crest. He hefts it back and screams, "I'll bring about that end with my own two hands!" and smashes the glacial bludgeon into his adversary, the frost cutting deep as it gnaws through the dracolich's bones and chills it down to its very soul, leaving it numb before the furious dragonborn.

Torinn charges forward, filled with righteous fury (though skillfully evading the skeletal minions), and though his initial strike misses, the dracolich is nevertheless seared by radiant energy. A follow-up strike from the deepest reserves of the paladin's power chills the dragon's bones, making it sluggish and less damaging.

The dracolich is still holding back. It seems to be waiting for something.

Torinn moves so he doesn't take OAs, then charges, but his basic attack misses. Holy smite still deals 11 radiant damage (5 vulnerability).
Torinn spends an action point! Torinn uses chilling smite, which hits the dracolich acolyte for 12 cold damage, and imposes a -5 penalty to damage rolls (save ends).

Though Torinn's sword passes through the dracolich's ribs, it has no apparent effect on the undead beast, and it withdraws quickly. A second, later, though, the monstrosity is seared by radiant energy.

Talar appears a bit annoyed. "Cease stalling, Kollritza. Dispose of them already." With this, the wearer of purple turns to leave, and necrotic energy begins to gather in the dragon's mouth, which it then unleashes in a wave that spills across the mounted cavalier, Michael, and the horse. The energy saps the strength of those effected, though Torinn manages to resist the full effects of the breath weapon.

One of the shambling dragonborn charges down Michael, and slices into the walord's flank with one of its bone-claws.

Michael uses direct the strike, and Torinn's melee basic attack misses the dracolich, though his holy smite still deals 11 radiant damage.
The dracolich acolyte uses its breath weapon, which hits Michael and Rutger for 18 necrotic damage (reduced from 23), and misses Torinn for 6 necrotic damage (reduced from 11). Michael and Rutger are weakened (save ends), and Torinn is weakened until the end of the dragon's next turn.
Dracolich servant 2 charges Michael and hits for 5 damage, and Michael is marked until the end of its next turn.

Sureiya manages to dispatch one of the minions after a few attempts, and the psionic shaman enters the aura only to fail to affect one of the servants with her dimensional re-arrangement. Her goggles do give her a good read of the dragon's remaining strength, however.

The last minion laying on the ground springs to its legs and charges down the shaman, cutting a shallow gash in her side.

Sureiya's twin strike hits the servant 3 but misses servant 1. Sureiya then advances.
Bernkastel's dimensional scramble misses. Her goggles of aura sight determine the dragon has a maximum health of 332. The only thing related to disease and poison about it is that it's immune to both.
Dracolich servant 4 stands and charges Bernkastel, hitting with claw for 5 damage, and Bernkastel is marked.

Sariel advances forward, closing the distance to the Dracolich. None too keen on catching its breathing attack, she makes sure her distance to it is reasonable, firing off another spell at a nearby minion instead.

The mage moves into the field in order to conjure some illusions to overwhelm one of the skeletal dragonborn, its power feeding into Myn's aura. Reflexively, the dragon creates a burst of reanimating shadows, which does indeed revive the minion, but also earns it Torinn's divine punishment, and misses the nearby warlord.

Sariel's winged horde destroys dracolich servant 2, increasing Myn's aura by 1.
Dracolich acolyte's instinctive reanimation allows it to use reanimating shadows, which misses Michael and restores dracolich servant 2. The dracolich acolyte takes 12 radiant damage from Torinn's righteous radiance.

Myn forgoes expanding his aura in order to spread his curse around.

Torinn breaths lightning on the newly-reanimated minion, which does not destroy it, though it places it under his divine sanction. He then turns his blade on the dracolich, scoring a solid hit, weakened though he is, granting Michael some additional strength through holy power.

Torinn's dragon breath hits dracolich servant 2 for 3 lightning damage (weakened) and placing it under his sanction.
Torinn's strike of hope hits dracolich acolyte for 7 radiant damage (reduced from 14). Michael gains 4 temporary HP. Rutger fails its save.

Michael moves away from the nearby minion, and exposes another to further attack, though his attack is unable to drop the foe due to weakness. The warlord shrugs off the effect.

The dracolich readies its claw for a devastating blow against the paladin.

Michael's melee basic attack hits the servant 1 for 5 damage (down from 10). http://invisiblecastle.com/roller/view/3196382/
(Remember, when the minions revive with tHPs, you still need to roll damage.)

"You fools have taken me too lightly, the dracolich says in her shrill, haunting voice, as the claw strikes Torinn savagely. "It shall be your undoing." With this, she claws at the paladin again, which forces him to stumble backwards on his horse to fend off the blow. The dragon then uses its reanimating shadows without harassment, catching Bernkastel in the life-draining burst that reanimates a nearby zombie, before advancing further into the fray. Breathing deep, the dragon unleashes a ferocious breath attack that leaves four of the adventurers looking rather weak.

One of the fallen minions stands and moves to engage the paladin.

Bernkastel glances at the elemental spirit, still standing near the entrance, which nods back at her. She taps her spear on the ground. one, two, three, four times, whispering in a language the others are unfamiliar with.

On signal, four walls of flame burst into being. A large figure steps through each blaze, each looking like fire given vaguely humanoid form. They don heavy armor topped with a horned helmet reminiscent of a goat. Some would recognize the elemental beings as fire archons, loyal soldiers of ancient primordials crafted to fend against the organized armies of gods, but these creatures seem translucent and ephemeral, much like the elemental spirit.

Calling a horde of spirits to aid her party, the shaman then attends to her healing duties and escapes the minion, but not before it gets in a parting bit of claw.

With rage, the half-orc charges right at the dragon, hacking a savage wound in its skeletal flank. The dracolich still looks quite ready to battle, however.

The dracolich servant that attacked the psionic shaman pursues its quarry mindlessly, but its attack goes wide this time.

Sureiya's marauder's rush with a charge deals 20 damage to the dracolich acolyte.
Dracolich servant 4 charges Bernkastel, and misses with claw. Bernkastel is marked until the end of its next turn.

Sariel, spotting the nearby Servant, instead slips through reality and reappears beside Sureiya.

"Warlord! Now!" the Eladrin calls. She seizes the feint to emit a burst of light from her palm, blasting the Dracolich with radiant fury.

The swordmage teleports into the fray quickly, then leverages a shining orb of radiance against the dracolich. Its radiance burns the undead dragon quite badly and leaves it staggered, though not quite staggered enough that it doesn't instinctively use its reanimating shadows once more, catching the paladin and one of its destroyed servants in the effects. Torinn is again quite injured.

Another servant charges down the paladin, flanking and cutting into his side with its claw.

Sariel uses fey step to teleport 5 squares.
Sariel uses color orb, which hits (barely, thanks to spirit + CA) the dracolich acolyte for 14 radiant damage and it is dazed until the end of her next turn.
Dracolich acolyte's instinctive reanimation hits Torinn for 12 necrotic damage, and reanimates servant 1.
Servant 3 charges Torinn, and hits for 5 damage. Torinn is marked by the servant.

"Stand strong, Michael!"

Torinn imparts some of his constitution to the warlord in motes of light, healing him slightly. The bloodied dragonborn gives absolutely no attention to the rabble surrounding him as he rides off. Rutger stamps at the ground when he stops, kicking up dust as Torinn bellows, "This is what I think of your 'handiwork', you monster!" before they hurl themselves into the fray with ferocious strength, in spite of their weakened and wounded condition. His sword ignites as it slashes at the dracolich, searing it with radiant energy again and rooting the big pile of bones to the spot.

Torinn, heedless of the servants trying futily to claw him, rides Rutger into a better position as he grants Michael renewed strength, then boldly charges down the dragon, his blade cutting deep and activating with flame and radiance to sear the monstrosity further. It roars in pain, despite the cavalier's weakness, which neither he nor his horse can shake off.

Torinn uses his virtue of sacrifice to spend a surge and allow Michael to regain 11 hit points.
He moves, provoking OAs, but all 3 miss.
Torinn's charge with a melee basic attack deals 24 damage plus 6 radiant and fire damage, reduced to 15 total, then add 5 vulnerability for 20 total damage done.
Torinn and Rutger fail their saves.

Michael uses his inspiring abilities to boost his allies' capabilities, restore Torinn's vitality all while delivering a pair of attacks that do not do much damage in and of themselves, but exposes the dracolich's weak points for the whole party to see.

The dracolich, still in a daze, unleashes a pair of claw attacks on Sureiya and Sariel. It misses the mage quite handily, but still scoots her over to the west, alongside Sureiya, who lashes out in retaliation to reasonably effective claw that sends him tumbling to the side.

One of the dracolich minions attempts to claw at Myn, but misses. the dracolich shakes off its daze effect, and roars, "Insignificant gnats! I'm going to flay the flesh from your bones and have it dance for my amusement!"

Michael uses inspired belligerence against the dracolich, granting his allies combat advantage and himself and all of his allies a 3 extra damage to damage rolls until the start of his next turn.
Michael hits with intuitive strike (thanks to heroic effort), which deals 2 damage (reduced from 5), and grants his allies a +2 bonus to attack rolls against the target as long as they have combat advantage until the start of his next turn.
Michael spends an action point! He then uses warlord's strike, which hits for 9 damage (reduced from 19), and grants his allies a +4 bonus to damage rolls against the target until the end of his next turn.
Michael's inspiring word allows Torinn to spend a surge (his last one?) and regain 27 hit points.
Michael fails his save against weakness.
Dracolich acolyte fails to recharge its breath weapon.
Dracolich acolyte uses claw against Sariel and Sureiya. Sureiya uses disruptive strike against the attack against him, which hits for 28 damage, and the dracolich misses Sariel and hits Sureiya for 15 damage. It slides them both 2 squares.
Dracolich acolyte's draconic recovery removes its dazed condition.
Dracolich servant 2 uses claw but misses Myn. Myn is marked by servant 2.

When the warlock moves, the half-orc reacts quickly, striking a terrible wound in the dragon that provokes it to instantly breath its weakening breath on the ranger in retaliation, though that doesn't stop him from unleashing a second attack against the undead monstrosity.

Sureiya's twin strike hits the dracolich acolyte once for 36 damage, which bloodies it.
Dracolich acolyte's bloodied breath triggers, and it uses it, which hits Sureiya for 12 necrotic damage (reduced from 19 by aegis of shielding). Sureiya is weakened (save ends).
Sureiya's twin strike hits a second time for 11 damage.

The elemental spirit confidently steps into the fray. With a wave of its hand, the fire archons scramble into advantageous positions.

One archon disappears, quickly infusing the warlock with a surge of strength as the spirit companion has often done.

Minor action: Use up the G-11 goat to grant Myn an attack.
Standard action: Ready action - Spirit Infusion for Myn, when Erika gives the signal (this would be when the curse looks like it can activate again)

After intently observing the curse magic, the spirit gives Bernkastel the signal on dracolich servant 4's turn.

With the re-arrangement of the spirits, they move to empower the warlock, first one, then another, and the pair of exceedingly powerful eldritch blasts leave the dracolich reeling.

Bernkastel moves her spirits and grants Myn an attack with eldritch blast for 45 damage.
With a readied action, she then infuses Myn with spirit infusion which allows him to use edlritch blast again for 49 damage.
Dracolich servant 4 misses Bernkastel with claw.

One last attack from the fully-empowered warlock is enough to leave the dracolich reeling.

"This cannot be--I am the master here! You mortals are nothing to my kind; DO YOU HEAR?! NOTHING!" the dracolich roars in desperation, as it reels back, claws at the air, then collapses into a loose pile of bones. When it does so, all of the dracolich minions crumble to skeletal debris.

Myn's eldritch blast hits the dracolich acolyte for 47 damage, which destroys it.

Poking through the dracolich's skeletal remains reveals little but bones and the powdered remains of bones. Whatever magic held the skeletal dragon together must have completely burned itself out in the creature's final demise.

The group begins to ascend the stairs. It takes nearly five minutes of ascending straight upwards before Myn, in the lead, encounters something strange.

The stairs are built around a large, marble-like pillar, in an enclosed space, leading upwards. The outer walls are connected directly to the stairs, so there is no danger of falling (unless one trips on the stairs and tumbles down them horribly). Along the walls are green, glowing crystals set into the wall that illuminate the entire area in a pale, sickly light. This has allowed easy passage upwards, until Myn encounters a large gap in the stairs. It's as if the stairs stop here, though you can see the edge of more stairs just around the corner a bit further ahead and upwards... getting there would require scaling the inner pillar, however. Climbing tools may help. There are no obvious signs that the stairs were damaged. It's as if a large section of the stairs was simply removed.

A group climb (Athletics) check vs. an Easy DC.

Sureiya sees... an empty space in front of him, devoid of stairs.

Torinn's illumination provides some more comforting color to the party's lighting situation, but it appears the crystals have no function other than to give off light.

Sariel believes this COULD be an illusion... but it could also be real. Such spells exist to hide objects from sight, yet she also knows that even illusions can be quite deadly to those affected... her own magic can attest to that.

If you believe what's ahead to be an illusion, try an insight check, along with doing something like tossing a solid object at the empty space.

Sariel knows she has little aptitude for discerning lies from truth, and eyes the Shaman.

With a bit of aid from the spirits, and some "insight" from her allies, the psionic shaman quickly determines that there IS an illusion covering the stairs ahead... it's likely something that was set up long in advance, though. Perhaps the Wearer in Purple merely activated some old traps...? There could be more ahead. The group should proceed with caution, and take care not to stumble on the invisible steps as they proceed.

With the effect created by the psionic shaman, traversing the stairs proves to be an easy task for the party. Higher and higher they climb, until they reach an egress.

When Myn assesses the magical energies the crystal faintly emanates, he determines that the door is locked. Though it is a magical lock, anyone versed in the arts of lock-picking would still have an easier go at it than attempting to undo the lock via magic.

Sureiya sticks his thievery tools in the lock, and steadily prods it until the door begins to slide open. The half-orc quickly stows his tools and draws his blades as the scene inside is revealed: an expansive study, occupied by a purple-wearing eladrin male and a massive silver dragon. The dragon is standing on a ritual circle, which is obviously active, as blue energy is swirling violently around and over the dazed-looking silver dragon.

"Halt, interlopers," the wearer in purple calls out, pointing his elven rod in your direction threateningly. "The spell has already been cast. There is nothing more you can do."

The relevant check for the silver dragon knowledge is nature.

Notes
You have 6 rounds to stop the ritual! Each round on the caster's turn, it will further shorten the time remaining by one. Killing the caster as quickly as possible will make it complete much at a much slower pace.
In order to fully stop the ritual, you must use Arcana, Nature, or Religion (moderate DC) while adjacent or in the circle. Standing in the circle could be hazardous, however. Heal could also be used, but it's a (hard DC). Making such a check is a standard action.

"Why, you!" Sariel jabs her finger at the other Eladrin. "Just what the heck do you think you're doing?! I don't think Corellon ever said anything about traipsing around with the undead!"

In a much quieter tone, she adds to her party, "Warlock, the two of us can probably disrupt that ritual, but my kinsman there is a problem. If we can take him out, or the others can distract him..."

Suspicious, no more traps? Since Sureiya can't detect anymore traps in that room decide to start attacking the evil eladrin

"Good." Sariel strides forward quickly, her blade switching shapes to a hefty two-handed sword as she does so. Now, she plans to bring pain.

The Eladrin casts, but the weight of the Falchion causes her Orb to fizzle uselessly. Determined, Sariel launches another spell at it, summoning a horde of spectres and other monsters to lay siege to the enemy's bastion of sanity.

Sureiya moves into position and takes a quick glance around the room, finding nothing suspicious, then prepares to hurl his blade. The mage follows, shooting a colorful orb of radiant energy at the caster, which is easily evaded. However, Sariel quickly reaches into her deepest reserves of strength to launch a second attack, creating a horde of illusionary warriors to distract and damage the Wearer of Purple, which Sureiya follows by hurling his farbond spellblade twice--the first attack again misses, but the second connects, slicing through the eladrin's shoulder.

Talar yelps a bit but holds firm, saying, "Our plans go greater than you could imagine! With a powerful dragon like Halvangh under our control, we'll be unstoppable!"

Sureiya moves and readies an action.
Sariel moves and uses color orb, which misses Talar.
Sariel spends an action point! Sariel uses winged horde, which crits Talar for 9 psychic damage.
Sureiya's ranged twin strike misses the first time and hits once for 8 damage.

"You monsters!" Torinn rages, running into the fray. Rutger rears back before the cavalier charges the wearer of purple, spearing it with a lance of light and slamming his sword into their body with ferocious force. Not one to relent, he commands Rutger to trample over their foe, attempting to push it into the profane ritual it conjured.

Torinn charges the caster down with righteous fury, and successfully delivers a smiting blow at the end of his charge. Rearing his horse forward, he attempts to trample the enemy, though the eladrin skillfully evades.

Torinn's charging melee basic attack hits Talar for 16 damage plus 6 radiant damage, and it is dazed until the end of his next turn. In addition, he uses his theme power to immobilize the wearer until the end of his next turn.
Torinn spends an action point! However, Rutger's trample misses Talar.

Myn moves forward and places his curse on the wearer of purple, but his first blast of eldritch power is side-stepped by the nimble eladrin. Trying a different approach, Myn is able to channel enough psychic force behind a spite-filled glare to cause Talar to grip his head with both hands and groan audibly.

For his part, Talar shifts his gaze towards Sureiya and exclaims, "You, kill them!" However, his psychic lures are resisted by the stalwart ranger, mostly thanks to the distracting presence of the cavalier--whose radiance burns the eladrin for its transgression.

You're running short on time to stop the ritual.

Myn moves and curses the Wearer of Purple, then uses eldritch blast but misses. He spends an action point, regaining 5 hit points from Michael's inspiring presence.
Myn's spiteful glamor hits the wearer of purple for 36 psychic damage.
Talar uses charming gaze on Sureiya, but misses. It takes 7 radiant damage from Torinn's righteous radiance.

With the warlord and the shaman giving him commands, the warlock is able to issue a series of eldritch blast that eventually ends up blowing away a large chunk of the eladrin's flesh, and it collapses to the ground in a bloody heap, too shocked to say anything.

Now what?

A bunch of attacks from Myn granted by Direct the Strike and Spirit Infusion take out the caster. Yes, this is still getting nerfed next adventure.

Sureiya quickly investigates the circle, finding some runes that are quite similar to those seen in primal magic, and points them out to the shaman. Sariel moves in to manipulate the magic directly, focusing her powers on the arcane runes before her, successfully unraveling a single "thread" of the spell. Torinn's call to the dragon causes it to stir slightly, perhaps signifying a sense of resistance.

So fall, all checks have succeeded in one way or another.

Notes
You have 3 rounds to stop the ritual!
In order to fully stop the ritual, you must use Arcana, Nature, or Religion (moderate DC) while adjacent or in the circle. Standing in the circle could be hazardous, however. Heal could also be used, but it's a (hard DC). Making such a check is a standard action.
You can also try other actions for a possible circumstance bonus.

Urged on by her successes, Sariel intensifies the strain of magic pouring into the ritual. The Eladrin weaves strands of her own magic into the ritual, pulsing and rocking with the intent of disrupting the entire flow of the ritual.

Pleased with the success of his first attempt, Myn funnels more magic into the circle.

Sariel and Myn continue to, albeit a bit roughly, focus their magic into the runes in order to dissolve the strange binding magic on the silver dragon.

Sariel and Myn's checks succeed.

"Why is the Shaman more interesed in that scum life than in Halvang? Wasn't our mission to come to see him in the first place?"
Looking the ritual seems a bit weaker now, Sureiya attempts to use his little knowlogement about the runes he was able to recognize and attempts to mess with the ones in the floor. Using his sword, Sureiya clash it against the magic circle and use it to cut throught it.

When she senses the ritual getting disrupted, Sariel's eyes spring open as she spins to the half-orc, thrusting an accusing finger at him.

"You! What kind of bloat-headed fool are you?!" Sariel scowls. "Arcane magic is not some toy to mess with by stabbing a sword at it!"
