Split Decision


SETUP
After the horrific destruction of the Jeweled City of Onyx, Magister Gahnak and his spy master, Syranna, believe that the Doomvault must be shut down and fast. Gahnak believes the Dying Star Xibalba will use the newly opened portal in the Doomvault to wreak more havoc upon the Jeweled Cities if the way is not shut. 

He has asked the characters, whom he refers to still as his Unsubtle Shadow, to venture back in and do their worst. Gahnak promised no tangible reward, but made it known that their actions are perhaps all that stands between the Jeweled Cities and annihilation. 

"Should you succeed, you may lay claim to any reward imaginable my friends. Come back from that despicable place victorious and make your claim."

The Spy Speaks
Syranna, the Luna'rhem (moon elf) spy master in service to Gahnak, provides the characters with new information. While Azas gathered troops and adventurers and sent them in to help disrupt the liches' work, Syranna took one of the keys to her allies and discovered new information. 

"You must reach a place called the Temples of Extraction. All else is support, or side-projects that the Luminous Cohort will use to craft their dark armies. The Temples of Extraction holds the key, the true research, and I believe a terrible secret." 

Syranna runs her hands over her pale face and the haggard look in her eyes says it all. Exhausted, but determined, she looks into your eyes with hers bleary and bloodshot. 

"The only way into the Temples of Extraction is to use the Black Gate keys. I have learned through divination and research that there are only four...and you already have one." She smiles, but there is no mirth. "The key from Tarul Var's room can be taken to a Black Gate anywhere in the vault and used to enter one place..."

The mistress of knowledge continues on relaying to you what she knows of the Black Gates and their Temples: 


  • There are only four Temples of Extraction, each attuned to a specific Black Key. 
  • Syranna believes the other three are located in the Blood Pens, the Master's Domain, and the Ooze Grottos.
  • Tarul Var's (your) key leads to the Temples of Anguish. 
  • The other Temples are called Turmoil, Oppression, and Nature.
  • Some kind of disruption needs to occur to be able to enter the Phylactery Vault, though she doesn't know the specifics of these requirements.


Armed with this knowledge, you made your plans and gathered your tools, then ventured back to the Bloodgate for Syranna to send you once more inside. 

The Dying Star's Chaos
Syranna gathered you together. She spoke the words and held the key. But something went wrong. The world flashed white and for a brief moment, you saw it. The cavernous maw of the Dying Star consuming all in this world and others...

...the light vanished and you returned to the Vault, no longer together. 




The Master's Domain
The strange light flashes in a riot of color and suddenly the world becomes solid once again. Azas and Noran are gone, torn away from you by the weird touch of the Dying Star, leaving you, Byurik and Zermindra, with just each other. 

You stand in a square room with ten-foot-ceilings, 45' wide and 50' north to south. An arsenal of weapons and armor hangs from the walls in this broad chamber, the floor of which is stained with blood and black ichor. On the wall between two weapon racks to the east is a contact stone. 

You are not alone. 

"What the hell? Who...who are you?"

A tall man in the red and white robes of the Luminous Cohort calls out to you. His voice is shaky, though he has no reason to fear. On either side of him stand two guards of the Luminous Cohort. Between you and the five of them are six skeletons. It appears the group was in the midst of some sort of training. 

"Announce yourselves? What allegiance are you? Are you Luminous Cohort?" The man takes a step closer and you see angry scars running atop his head, carved runes of magic in his flesh. He looks weary. Behind them all is a ten-foot-foyer and a set of double doors. 

"Are you...are you hear to test me? To kill me?" The wizard's voice breaks at the word kill, the weight of the world upon him.

You note for the first time that all of the group save the wizard seem to be discomfited by your arrival. The light from the teleportation blinded them temporarily. 

DM Note: 
You appear at the far southwest corner of the room. The six skeletons are 30' away from you, between you and the Luminous Cohort. 

The wizard and his four warriors appeared to have been training using the skeletons. Everyone except you and the wizard is Blinded for this first round. 

Map Key: 
Byurik and Zermindra are on the Map below as the Red Dot.
