Burning Sands

Back home, and something new

After returning from the ambush Naqreef confronts Samira on what she wants of him, and why she was in the city. Samira confessed that she has a bounty on her head placed there by the al Hazred family, that Urus had hurt those she cared for around the pilgrim trail. She also told Naqreef that she loves his poetry, kissed him, and fled.

Returning from the party Lotus found a package on her bed, in disgust she placed it outside her room for now. Tiralen changed back from her Lion form and worked with her animals.

The next morning Zen received a package containing maps and schedules for a depot of Guedado Mablevi’s forces. Their breakfast was interrupted by the wards detecting an invisible presence in the house. Jamar cast Invisibility Purge and a strange man appeared. he grabed one of the Dancers who were serving breakfast and demanded to be taken to Jesari.

Off to the Ball
Into the Dragons den
Making up for past mistakes

The party was able to make contact with the Kobold Kasherazan Resistance. They were introduced to Kasherazan and explained how they were responsible for switching the Dragon Bane toxin. Needing to deliver the toxin quickly, or Kasherazan’s followers assault on the temple of Ishkalltset would crumble the party was quickly escorted to the front lines.

Their escorts assaulted the enemy Blue Kobold lines, opening a gap in their lines for the party to access Ishkalltset’s gallery. Before they could reach it they were stopped by a band of Elite Kobold Guards lead by a Elite Kobold Wizard. The party was charged and in the ensuing battle Tiralen sent her shocking Lizards to attack the Elite Kobold Wizard. Upon this attack one of the remaining Elite Kobold Guards turned and charged a Shocking Lizard, slaying it. Tiralen and Naqreef rushed to the lizard’s aid, slaying the final Guard and Reincarnating the lizard.

Packing the lizard away, awaiting it’s new form the party continued on to Ishkalltset’s lair. Two of the party they scammed the toxin information off came out of the gallery. One was sobbing, dragging the corpse of her companion. The party wizard came down the hallway after casting a wall of force to cover their retreat. He takes his party member out of the area as the party spell casters pooled their abilities to increase Naqreef’s chance of hitting Ishkalltset.

While waiting for the wall of force to dissapate Naqreef prepped his spear with the Dragon Bane toxin and Zen took the remaining Dragon Bane and both were turned invisible. As soon as the wall came down they charged. With a mighty heft he threw the poisoned spear at his enemy, and the spear clattered off the scaled hide ineffectually. Quickly recovering his spear he was able to bury the spear deep in the dragon’s flesh, and before the dragon could react Zen threw the Bane Grenade to cover Naqreef’s retreat. As the party ran away Samira signaled the rebels. The whole party was caught in the hallway leading out by Ishkalltset’s breath weapon as the party ran. They continued to run until they ran across the rebel forces and were escorted away as Kasherazan did battle with the toxin weakened Ishkalltset.

Afte the battle they were given a reward and escorted back to the city with a promise that the collapses would cease.

Before the Descent
Finally, the mostly naked guy shows up

We return to our party standing over the dead kobolds they found in their basement…

While waiting for a response from the rough hewn hole in the wall Tuk’dak arrives bearing a message that there is a mostly naked man asking for the Adita Sune. the party went to meet him while Tuk’dak assigned one of the house guards to watch the hole.

The party met the man in a sitting room. He introduces himself as Amsi Zahur Yazid and lays prostrate in front of Naqreef, assuming that he is the Adita Sune. When the truth is discovered that Tirelin is actually the bearer of the Armaments of Adita Sune and that Naqreef bears the shield of Atemu Sesmunet Zahur Yazid is distraught. That the Adita Sune is a woman does not sit well, even worse she is a Hazir, his order has had a long standing antagonistic relationship with them.

He then left, but not before giving ominous mention that more of his order would be arriving soon, and once arrived they will determine if she is worthy of bearing the Armaments of Adita Sune

After that the party made preparations for descending into the lair of the kobolds.
