The party had Kinis’ blessing, their offerings turned to boons as they were deposited into the underworld. Here the world stretched out endlessly in all directions, roots tearing through the earthen roof above the only break in the encompassing darkness. Nearby, the faintest source of illumination guided the group to their goal.
Here they found a colossal being, entrapped by the great roots and being feasted upon by creatures born of the elemental chaos. He appeared sound of body despite the attacks, but his lethargy was disquieting. Before they could proceed the sun had to be freed.
Marcus Vermithrax and The Haunted Blade of Sylvaneft scaled the vines to attack the creatures straight on while the others remained on the floor below. Both the god and those that sought to consume it seemed oblivious to the party until Gomgrim Zekeif’s attack struck true. Finally alerted the plant creatures above turned on their attackers while elementals of earth arose to strike down those that had chosen to not scale the bound deity.
Facing enemies on two fronts, above and below, the party did its best to control the escalating situation. And though Gomgrim fell to the brutal assault of the earth elementals the group was eventually victorious.
With the attackers destroyed they were faced with a new dilemma: how do they obtain the blessing of a being that seemed to lack the ability to understand its own environment? After much debate and consideration Ryu’ Ve-Ke’rehl drove his dagger into the radiant heart of the thing. And when he withdrew the edge it shone with the light of the sun. And as… heretical as it all seemed, one by one the party struck the heart of the sun with their weapons to empower them.
Their task done Tavitha promised to guide the god along the proper path while the others reached out the Kinis once more, requesting passage back to the world of the living so that they might finish their efforts.
