D&D Encounters : Elemental Evil, Princes of the Apocalypse
Called by the Elder Elemental Eye to serve, four corrupt prophets have risen from the depths of anonymity to claim mighty weapons with direct links to the power of the elemental princes. Each of these prophets has assembled a cadre of cultists and creatures to serve them in the construction of four elemental temples of lethal design. It is up to adventurers from heroic factions to work together to discover where the true power of each prophet lay, and dismantle it before it comes boiling up to obliterate the Realms.
Session 11 : Stone Temple Monastery
Excepts from the correspondences between Qarbo and Hellenrae
My Dear Abbess,
I write to you to inform you that three more members of our little family have disappeared in the area that the Lich has claimed as his own. I would urge you, once more, to organize either an attack on this undead menace or allow me to turn him so we might live without the threat of a nameless fate.
Yours in Dirt,
While I appreciate your zeal for the "safety" of our members, if you and they simply followed the guidelines outlined, they would be no unnecessary losses in manpower or other resources. As I have said before, and clearly need to say again, stay out of the Lich's portion of the monastery. When the judgment comes, he will be buried, as dead things deserve. Think no more upon it.
Eternal as the Earth,
While you might have the patience of a mountain, some might say you are afraid of Renwick. Not I, of course, but there are mutterings. I have dealt with them, praise the soil. However, it would make a strong statement if you were to banish this desiccated fiend or at the very least let me deal with it, rather than leave it like a festering sore on the body of people.
Kneeling on sand,
My Dear Friend,
If you feel that strongly about this, by all means, take care of this blight on our home. But if he should somehow turn you into some sort of shambling wright or zombie, I will make sure you are put down, as I know you would want. May the strength of stone fill your soul.
Ready as Rock,
I will do that forthwith. However, there are supplicants at the gate. Once they are sorted, I’ll take care of our problem.
Dusty with Duty,
