Our heroes continue their search through the ancient temple.
After successfully avoiding being caught up in a skirmish between fey and trolls, our heroes check out the rooms beneath the raised part of the grand catherdral. This area appears to be living space for the monks of the temple. It is also guarded by radiant tendrils and some animated anvils. A fight in close quarters ensues, but our heroes are victorious.
They then decided to check out the area behind the broken doors the trolls came through. They enter a large chamber with stairs ascending to a stone platform centered on a crystalline disk. Atop the platform, they briefly see two figures – a slender, cloaked humanoid and a lizardfolk dreadnoght. The creatures descend from the platform opposite to the party and vanish from sight.
The party climbs to this central platform and realize they are surrounded by troglodyts, lizardfolk, a troll, and an animated guardian. And none of these creatures are happy to see them! Combat ensues and the party entually emerges victorious, though rather beat-up.
