Of course, Arthemis managed to release the trap, activating all the golems in the library. Arthemis went in for the kill, without thought as usuall. While Mokko changed into that golden lizard. Flying high in body and spirit. Me, I took a ready action. Mokko seemed to be their focus of atention, naturally given his size. But I also noticed that Arthemis was having a bit of problems, slaying these golems. Strange, since he rarely has problems slaying anything. The rest of the crew, ran for the exit. I desided to give Arthemis a helping hand, in form of some boosting spells, but this went terribly wrong. This freaking wild magic thing created a portal to the plain of air instead, and through the gate, came what must have been the mother of all air-elementals. The wind was so strong that it liftet almost everything and everyone from the floor, tossing us around. As if the golems wasn`t bad enough. But Mokko came to our rescue, killing the elemental. I could se it in his smug grin, that he was extremely satisfied with his contribution. Even more than usuall.

When we were free to act, i noticed that Arthemis had managed to slay one golem. So I charged another group of golems myself. In the background I could hear the sound of Arthemis` swordplay, golem spears flying through the air and Mokko ranting on about how great he is, and how well this was giong because of him. Pretty full of himself. Sure he made a difference and a great contribution, but come on!

When things finally looked to be going our way, things suddenly changed for the worse. The golems were not planing to go so easy. They all melted toghether, 4 and 4, into supergolems. A quick look over my shoulder, and I saw that Arthemis was nowhere near hitting the supergolem. So I figured that was my que for exit. Arthemis also took to his senses, and left in a hurry. Mokko on the other hand, needed a bit more time to realise that he was outmatched. But eventually he came along.

We regrouped in the cave beneth the library. We desided to heal up, and enter the library again tomorrow.

The next day we all went back into the library, flying and invisible of course. When we entered, nothing happened. We headed for the pedestal in the middle of the room. Mokko hit one of the buttons, and a word appeard. he hit the other 7 buttons as well, and 7 words revealed themselves. The group shuffeled the words into a sentence. Mokko pushed the buttons in the order to get the sentence “Travel to the divine sky castle of Dragons”. And a portal appeared. Mokko of course took the credit for this team effort. We all went through the portal.

Suddenly they all complained about the cold. We were now at what looket like a ledge on a mountainside. And by the look of all the clouds around us, we were pretty high. Looking over the edge and down at the world bellow, I would say we were about 30 000 meters above sealevel. One could say we were on top of the world. On the other side of the ledge, there was carved out a 300 meter dragon mouth and in the mouth there was a gate. In front there was the skeleton of a 450 meter dragon, chained to the mountain. We traveled 200 meters onto the dragon mouth, and found the gate. The gate had some kind of hole in it, probably some sort of keyhole. But where is the key, I thought. And before I could make another thought, I was immersed in flames. In the distance I could hear Mokko shout “dragon breath”. In some mysterious way, we all survived.

Behind us we saw a 450 meter long Draconic Red Dinosaur Dracolich. And what do you know, in its forehead, an glowing item was embeded. And by the looks of it, it would make a exellent fit to the hole in the gate.

But we had to act fast. If we were to have any chance of survival, we had to take this lizard out before it got close enough for melee combat. Arthemis charged on against the Draco-lich. Seriously, that man has to hve a diagnosis of some kind. Nobody in their right mind would do that sort of thing! But he was to far, so he did not reach him. I cast a Globe of force around the injured members,, before hitting the Draco-lich with a Greater Ruin spell. It did massive damage, but was far from enough. Mokko followed wit one of his specialities, Fook`s sunray. This really did a number in the Draco-lich, but not enough to kill it. Te Draco-lich charged against us, but luckily it didnt manage to reach all the way. But it had another trick up its sleeve. The motherfucker casted a Mordekainens disjunction. This was sure to destroy all our items, even epic ones and artifacts. I just could not let this happen. So I used the Elder Wand and managed to dispell the disjunction before it could do any harm. Then suddenly the Draco-lich just fell to the ground in a big poof, and it was turned to dust. And by the dustpile, stood Arthemis. Sheathing his swords with a smug grin.

We retrieved the item from the dustpile, and put into the hole in the gate. And the gate opened. And behind the gate, was the last thing any of us would imagine. It revealed what looket to be the garden of eden. It looked like it was taken stright out of a bards tale. It was beyond beutiful, but still, I have a bad feeling about tis place…….

 

Anthrax the dispeller.
