Devris' Campaign Journal
Day with the Orb
Sending us to search for an orb of immense power, Ein of course left us little detail as to the whereabouts of where to begin our search. So, we prepared ourselves to leave by buying potions, gear, and wagons. I was able to purchase a Bag of Holding and everlasting provisions.
As we head out we came upon a vagabond with a group of zealots whose wagon had been run aground in what appeared to be a sink hole. The zealot man was armed with a flail made of chains with rocks tied on the end. He ordered the zealots to attack us and of course I was there to save the day. My foresight knew that the sinkhole was not what it had appeared to be and so I called forth my Flaming Sphere and anticipated gigantic ants coming from the ground. It was only moments and sure enough, out of the ground came great sized insects that were disgruntled by having their home attacked by the zealots. Almost single-handedly I kept the ants at bay with my flaming sphere while the group handled the extremely docile and ill-equipped men of whatever order they were apart of. Within moments we had the entire saga under control when the sinkhole finally collapsed taking their wagon and horse into the abyss of the ant-hole. Out of the hole came an elemental which I of course led the group to overtake and destroy.
Several moments later we came upon a mercenary girl who informed me of a Temple possessing a man that would pay great amounts to have the crystal that the elemental was being held captive in. We retrieved the crystal box that was now broke and had held the elemental and proceeded to the Temple. We came upon the temple near dark. Entering we found the entirety of it empty. Hoewever, there were several bookcases which held knowledge that I found most interesting. The Temple had been desecrated by followers of the God of undeath. Naturally I was intrigued by the knowledge possessed. Purely for interests and for the pursuit of information's sake. We found a secret passage into the basement of the Temple where we were accosted by several zombies of the undeath. One of the zombies held a gem that I of course had to analyze since the rest of the group was incompetent in their knowledge of the world. I found the gem to be a meteorite. The gem turned out to raise the dead and attracted their presence. It was impossible to destroy the gem unless done at a purified altar. We crushed the gem, but it was too late. the undead were raising from their graves outside the temple and besieged us in the basement where we waited until daybreak. I gained much knowledge about the undead this day. I found many books which I took into my bag of holding. When I have gained the power to have the time to study them I am sure I will find a great use.
