Nightal 6th, 1372 DR The Year of Wild Magic
Day 64 – Morning (Time suspended while in pyramid)
The Pyramid of Shadows, The Hermitage
Taking a short rest after clearing the library the group discusses what to do when a blast from the past (Bashful) makes an appearance and rejoins the group. They decide to make a move on the shard that Vyrellis detects to the north, this at least may get them one step closer to escaping this place. Everyone takes up positions on either side of the door while Stagaut examines the door and finds no visible signs of traps and the party opens the door. They see a small room with some tables and a statue of an angel. Stagaut spots a decaying glpyh on the statue, possibly a trap.
When Sneezy moves in for a closer look at the glyph it triggers some kind of audible alarm and sets everyone’s ears ringing. Voideaters come rushing out of the open doorway and battle is joined. The party is soon swamped by many voideaters, and they find that the audiable alarm has a dazing effect and appears to be growing in size. When Arat appears the head of Vyrellis commands the party to destroy him and get his key. Most of the party is immobilised or dazed or both during the fight making any tactical moves extremely difficult until Staguat moves in and swiftly disables the Glyph on the statue. However from the onset the party took control and slowly wore down the defenders, Arat proving no match for them, even after knocking Snow & Sneezy of the ledge back onto the library floor. There was a brief moment when the group thought Arat had escaped but they soon found him again and finished him off.
