Our journey to Blackstone took just over a week to complete. Along the way we encountered some orcs and an ettin. During the battle with these monsters we witnessed for the first time the true power of Coles new sword. He was striking with a bloodlust the likes of which I had never seen before. After a kill he seamed to be without control, seeking death regardless of who his prey was.
Upon arrival to Blackstone Bertha is returned to her family. They have little to offer by way of payment though their gratitude is well felt. They do tell us that there is a rumor of a darkness or doom of some kind lingers in the mountains.
Satisfied that this task is complete we move on to the Temple of Hera. Here we meet with the priestesses Elizabeth. She confirms the rumors. She has seen visions and in them the titan, who is only known as “The Unnamed One”, awakes. It is still unclear who is awakening this fiend and what they intend to do when they have completed their task but it is certain that they must be stopped, and at all costs.
We tell Elizabeth of Ricky Vallish and his quest to bring back the city of Krinton. She assures us that Krinton is but a fairy tale and anyone who seeks it will find nothing but an endless maze of riddles and nonsense. She also tells us that there is a member of the party of adventurers who destroyed the mine 75 years ago who still lives. The human bard, Sempronius.
After 4 days of research Elizabeth concludes that she is unable to fully understand the powers of the amulet with the facilities available to her. The necklace should be taken to The Shining Tower where the high priest of Zeus can study it. She offers to make arrangements to teleport us there in the morning.
