As the fight between our group and the rust monsters ends, we hear fighting coming from down the corridor. Two voices one male and one female. A thud is heard, and the battle seems to end. Fauntleroy and Lihi stay behind to get him back into his armor and harvest parts from the rust monsters. The rest of us rushed down the hall and threw open the door. Imagine our surprise when we see a petite elf like person being held against the wall by a small Beholder. The battle raged, and as it seemed that we were going to get the upper hand it would use an eyebeam on us. Taresha became blinded then dominated, and started to play a game of marco polo with the party. Zakiti became winded and took a nap(sleep ray). Finally we defeated the dread monster and found out that it was wearing two objects. One was a jewel bracelet worth 1.200 gp and the second was a grace ring of lightning (see me for specials). We then were able to question the petite woman being held captive. Her name is Cymoril. She looks elven but is not. Around her neck is a choker that seems to be restraining or keeping dormant a power or powers. She doesn’t remember where she is from or who her people are but she thinks she was a queen. Serge cast a ritual, Reveal History, we saw different pictures of her past. One of the pictures showed Anna’s mom and aunt. She led us to the forge and in the cooling barrels, we found little silver bracelets with battle axe charms.(see me for details) From the next floor down we heard crashing and gnawing of stone. Guess what we found at the bottom of the stairs. That’s right we found a monster. And not just any monster but a Behir. The Behir fought with us back and forth up the stairs, Anna became a demon from Wandra’s power. Then the Behir did something stupid. It ate Anna. She hacked her way out of the beast. Taresha and I harvested the skin and got 5,000gp in components. We found on that level a museum of armor and arms. Finally we went down to the next level and encounter three giants, one of whom was a frost giant, they were destroying the great library. The giants were destroying the library. After much tribulation we prevailed against the giants and saved as much of the library as possible. We have also invited Cymoril to join us on our journey.
