The blackwater company

The hunt continues

After several nights of revelries our heroes are summoned to the caves in he Ash’Kalo mountains. There they find out that the people of Belus have been able to make an opening thru the debris and it leads to a tunnel. The tunnel slopes upward towards the top of the mountain. They notice that there are rooms lining the entire way but as they climb the rooms become fewer but they also become larger. As they get closer to the top they can hear screaming and chanting. As they get to the top they enter a massive room that leads to outside at the top of the mountain. In the centre of the room there is an altar that is dripping in blood, standing in front if it is Belgeon and he is ripping the heart out of a victim and throwing it into a brazier. There is a pile of bodies in the corner of the room and they have all had their hearts cut out, they all appear to be the people that Belgeon was recruiting to start his own assassins guild. Obviously that was not the case. As he thru the last heart in the brazier a massive storm cloud moved to the mountain and lightning erupted from it and came into the room striking Belgeon. The lightning repeatedly struck a pendant that he was wearing, he was lifted into the air and rotated for several minutes as the storm raged into him. When it was done Belgeon was no longer the same, the pendant radiated a black aura, his eyes were like onyx and his voice sounded different. As he touched the amulet, the ghosts of the recent victims emerged and attacked the group. At the same time a massive red dragon landed on the outside of the room and Belgeon climbed onto it and flew away. As the battle raged on the mountain started to come apart, it used to be an active volcano and it was erupting again. As the battle rages on our intrepid heroes have to avoid falling into the chasms that are opening up all over the floor with lava flowing out of them. It was a close call for a while, the entire group of city guard that had come up we’re killed but the black water company managed to win the battle and escape the room just as it fully erupted. When they made they’re way down the mountain they realized that the town of Belus was almost fully destroyed by the lava flow. They took it upon them selfs to escort the survivors to another town. After that they made their way to the nearby town of Kyndale to gather info as to what just happened. On the way they were ambushed by a group of shahugin, there never was any doubt as to the outcome of this encounter. When they arrived in Kyndale they made their way to the town library, which used to be a castle. There they were told of an unusual uprising in the graveyard and that if they could solve the problem they would be granted access to the entire library including the restricted section. When they got to the graveyard, they noticed that it was completely surrounded by city guard. The captain of the guard told them that they had already lost a group of guardsmen to the undead in the yard. Once inside they were faced by several skeletons and a skull lord. Luke destroyed the skull lord singlehandedly, while the party took care of the rest. The city guard were speechless as to the martial prowess of the black water company, once again adding to the mystic of this group of mercenaries. When they returned to the library, they explained that they were looking for info about the amulet that Belgeon was wearing. The librarian actually pissed himself when he heard what they were looking and told the group that Belgeon has become the high priest of Voerax and that he is basically an avatar of a god now.
