From Yagesa they commission a submersible vehicle, sticking Vennerzad on it for its near month long journey south. Then, leaving various “long weekend” cover stories, the group teleports to the vessel as it nears the pole. When they reach the pole they find it covered by a vast cocoon of ice, which they are able to bypass by diving below it. Once through the barrier they find a set of three buildings at the base of a column of arcane energy ringed by massive occuli. Through a water intake system they manage to breach one of the buildings.
