No time to bleed, just tickle
It smelled awful in here, he thought to himself. That’s saying something considering Drag’os would go weeks without a proper bath. He was inside of something, something moist and disgusting. He could barely move and his sword arm was useless as it was pinned against his body. Feeling doubt creep into his soul he stopped thinking and just reacted.

Using the pommel of his sword and the fingers of his free hand he started rubbing the soft fleshy meat that surrounded him completely. To his amazement, it seemed to be working. He felt the crushing flesh loosen and before he knew what had happened he was in a heap on the cave floor.

Then came a sound he had heard before but never as loudly. BRRRRRT!! And then the smell came. Oh, that smell. Worse than before by several magnitudes. Drag’os though to himself, “hmm, I thought they smelled worse on the inside.”

Slip sliding away.......
The pushed deeper into the caves beneath Vor Rukoth. Before long, they were in narrow tunnels barely wide enough for two abreast. They were moving fast, trying to keep up with Eravor, but they tried to stay together for those without darkvision. They felt a gust of wind that was uncharacteristic for tunnels this deep. Then again. Then it was on them. A MASSIVE Lurker decended upon them before they could react. They attempted to damage it from the inside and out. Little worked until Drag'Os found it's T spot. He tickled it until to spit them out. Then he tickled it some more, causing it to fart and sniff it which was more than it could bare. It decided to leave these nasty monsters to their own devices.

Then it was into the underground river. The party was sliding along rapidly, struggling to avoid underwater curves and boulders. They got separated but eventually found their way back to each other just before careening down a large underground waterfall and group feather falling to a waiting Eravor.

Once again above ground, the smell of brimstone was pervasive. They approached the Ruby Court grounds cautiously and inserted wax into their ears to protect against the wailing spirit. They investigated the area and found their way into the guard station before they were found out. The Banshee wailed and things went sideways. Vick was on the ground choking out when he was suddenly released from the full body convulsion. Zevron had asked the Banshee how could he help.

Now things were about to get interesting.

Epic!
Great addictions to the Great Race
The party has chosen to retain Eravor the Sly in order to guide them through The Outer Ward, skirt the Blood Grounds and eventually enter the sea caves of Vor Rukoth. Not everyone wanted to go that way. In particular, Vladyn seemed intent on visiting the bloodworm caves. And Vick seemed to want to go to the nightmare forges. Eravor has explained that things might get weird in the caves. But he says little more about it.

On the way through the outer ward, Eravor makes a pit stop in a shambling building. He takes a break, has a smoke and Vick bakes some tasty biscuits. Everyone partakes. During this time, the group ask Eravor what he knows about the Ruby Court. He shares several tales of woe. The first is that there is an armory and it is still well stocked. But that one would have to be very brave or stupid to risk the defense mechanisms designed to protect it. Second, he tells of Taru Maaj, an ancient library and repository of knowledge of the ancient Tiefling empire. That it is tucked in a pocket dimension, outside of space and left in time. It is rumored that Arkosia's last would like to bring it back into the world in order to see it destroyed.

Drag-ass attempts to change the subject to the Crimson Marauder, but Eravor continues talking about the mission at hand, the Ruby Court. He explains that he has heard a strange keening wail emanating from the grounds, though he has never gone near to investigate. Just the meerest sound was enough to push him to irrational fear. And lastly he tell of a rumor of a great guardian that watches over the court, and that under no circumstances should it be engaged.

After the short break, smoke, and snack, the party moves along the edges of the blood grounds and avoids any entanglements. They eventually make it to a large cave entrance. They take cover behing a stone outcropping while Vick investigates the cave. But after a time, they hear a gut wrenching crack. Drag'Os thinks it's a broken branch, but Enna is quite sure it is the sound of gone cleaving against bone. Then there is a squeak and a roar. Within moments, a bloody Vick races from the cave, feet barely touching the ground and he collapses near Enna. Drag'Os and Zevron take immediate action and charge the cave mouth, just in time to see a massive Cave Giant preparing to exit. He sees them and charges but the transition from darkness to daylight confuses him and Drag'os is able to avoid his attacks. Vladyn attempts to open a maw near it but the giant senses it and grabs Drag'Os and shoves him in just in time.

While this is going on, Enna heals Vicks worst wounds and Vick is back on his feet. Drag'Os opens a vortex beneath the creature and it disappears. This gives the group a chance to catch their breath and get into position. In a moment the giant is back and prone andDrag'Os walks up to him. But before he can even draw his weapon, Vick goes to work on its face. He cuts and stabs and slices until he is literally out of breath, collapsing near the giant. Drag'Os waits patiently and then says a few words and everyone disappears, leaving him standing alone in front of the giants head, staring it in the face as he takes the life from it.

Before they have time regroup, Eravor is on the move. He leads them to the back of the cave where they slide down a shaft (lol) to a lower section of caves. Vick notices some animal claw marks on the walls as they slide but its dark and he's moving to fast to tell more than that. When they reach the bottom, Eravor quickly takes cover and bids the party to do the same. They are in a massive set of caves and they can hear water rushing nearby, an underground river that travels under the Ruby Court to the Mightnight Sea.

While sizing up the situation, Vladyn has some tremors from a lack of fiendsblood and makes a noise. Nearby they hear something sizzle and then a blinding flash and explosion. Eravor has a look of panic and tell them to split up around a natural stone wall. THey do so and find themselves looking upon a creature of floating tentacles and slime. The smell is pungent and putrid, like the rotting cavity of some alien carcass. They engage and finally defeat it but not before it has a chance to sample the taste of Eladrin. But in doing so they draw another creature through the vortex. A member of the great race, seeking knowledge and understanding of this realm. The party smartly avoids this, but the stench and flash have left Vladyn blind and weak. He attempts to float to the ceiling but the creature is massive and approaches him immediately grabbing and crushing him with large pincers, and emitting a substance to initiate a mental transfer before seeking to probe his mind. In a last ditch effort, Vladyn instinctively teleports away just moments before complete transfer. The creature is left blue tentacled and furious. Vladyn may have escaped, but the creature was able to consume enough genetic and mental material that he will always have a connection to Vladyn no matter where he goes.

Once again, Eravor was on the move, leading the party away through a set of tunnels that would eventually place them very near to the Ruby Court, the subject of their travels. But would the rumors be true?

Out of the Frying Pan, into the Fire
After negotiating a truce with Golgon Steamshanks, the party must traverse the Elemental Plane of Fire, in order to get back from the fortress. They pass through two sequential wormholes before being deposited somewhere southwest of Coyote's Refuge. It doesn't take them long to realize they aren't where they hoped to be.

After a quick assessment of where they are, they move in the direction of the trade road and see a caravan moving past. They double time it towards the road and approach the caravan. The guards take them for marauders or madmen and take defensive positions. After a few words are exchanged, the caravan guards decide it's best to attack and ask questions later. Uncharacteristically, the heroes do not return fire and are able to gain the caravan guards trust. So they meet Reniss, a cranky old Ranger, Vaegould a valiant warrior and Durud, a combat healer. But all is not as it seems. Zevron gets the impression that these guards may be overstepping the trust placed in them by Gerroll.

After the caravan arrived in the Refuge, the party went to the Dancing Lizard and reestablished themselves in town. They got to see the eponymous Lizard and Terris Halfjaw. Zevron met with Taleen Quirrelle. Vladyn and Enna noticed the people of the town didn't look well and after some investigation realized that the entirety of Coyote's Refuge seems to be suffering from a drug exposure and addiction problem. In trying to "understand" the symptoms, Vladyn made the poor choice of trying the drug and became hooked.

While this was going on, Drag'Os went out to locate a guide to take them back into Vor Rukoth. He attempted to visit Nocmas Ashwalker but then decided to find Eravor the Sly. When he found him, Drag'Os was perturbed and set Eravor's tent on fire. But it turned out Eravor was in Dunlor's tent waiting for him. As the fire grew, Dunlor returned and was not pleased. But after a heated discussions with Drag'Os, they came to terms. It looked like they might even be willing to help each other.

Dunlor explained that he and Shileena had made several excursions into Vor Rukoth and there were 3 main routes. Zevron heard from Taleen that the White Lantern Consortium had uncovered evidence of a powerful suit of armor located in the Ruby Court. Eravor verified the rumor. Now the party must decide, whether to go straight to the forges and confront Snurre as agreed with Golgon, or whether to take a side trek to acquire the armor. And if so, which of the 3 routes will they take?

Saying goodbye to Enna's father
Welp, that was quick!
No sooner than Sir Jameson uttered the words "Kill Meeeeeee" then we see Enna bend down to kiss her father goodbye. But it is no ordinary kiss. It is the kiss of death. She opens her mouth to release a swarm of locust like beetles that rapidly enter and devour her father leaving a deflated husk behind.

It seemed time stopped, as everyone looked on, even Golgon Steamshanks was slighly repulsed at what he witnessed. But he would be lying if he didn't feel a bit of respect for the young druid even as he was about to slay her and all her companions.
