Our Heroes decided to journey to Luscan in an attempt to contact Pyre, the mysterious Nobleman who possesses clues to the Gems of Alignment. Upon arriving, the group makes its way to Pyre’s home, where they witness several Chromatic Cultists kick in Pyre’s door. The band of adventurers enter and handily save the Nobleman from certain death. In repayment, Pyre offers them information – telling them the tale of the Gems of Alignment, and of the original owners of the relics. He gives them a map that he procured several years prior from a sailing merchant. The map leads them to the Crypt of Shadow – the final resting place of Lord Ador, ruler of the kingdoms of the East, and possessor of the Gem of Chaos.
The Crypt proves to be a dangerous location for the Heroes, as they suffer damage from several failed attempts to unlock the Crypt’s outer doors. Once past, they dive into the depths of the tomb, locating the skeletal remains of the long dead Lord of Chaos. Nim, attempting to pry the Gem of Chaos from the corpse’s fingers, is repelled backwards by the will of the Gem implanted in his head. Osnah, the Human Swordmage, approaches the Gem instead, and awakens the shadow spirit of Ador. He demands they prove their competence, and vanishes. Magical fires erupt from several magical braziers around the room, spawning undead zombies, and giant skeletal warriors.
Alek, the Elven Avenger, falls during the fight, but is resuscitated by the spry Bardish Gnome, Nim. Though beaten and battered, the group manages a surge of battle prowess and tactics, which ultimately overwhelm the remaining horde. The Gem of Chaos then shrinks and flies across the chamber, imbedding itself into Osnah’s forehead, granting him a powerful aura.
The adventurers now face a long trek back to the City of Luscan, in hopes that their ally Pyre has discovered more information on the last gem’s whereabouts.
