Having defeated one of Dawneste' Heir's, the group moves to help the other members of Parliament of Steel

Summary[edit | edit source]

Having defeated the member of Dawneste' Heir's who had been summoning the crystal spiders the group ask Sekhar what's going on. He explains that Dawneste' Heir's want the Helm of Dawnestes which can teleport people around. The Parliament of Steel and the Dawneste' Heir's have a dispute over the ownership of the Helm and related artifacts.

The white dragon Oretaskos once controlled this atoll and had tried to take it back several times before, and is thought to be a third party in this current conflict.

The party moves up the mountain and finds the Bard Amerie another member of the Parliament of Steel she is under fire from a a group of Dawneste' Heir's shooting at her from the high ground. After giving Sekhar a quick run down of what's going everyone decides to charge of the mountain, this starts a skills challenge.

After the Skills challenge Amerie suggests they go up the mountain to go help Gibken who is holding the chamber by himself.

As the party goes up the mountain they see a group of Dawneste' Heir's taking shots at Gibken. As they approach Gibken throws up his arms screaming breathing fire and turns into a screaming tornado of rage.

With few options the group launches into another battle.
