021. A Blast from the Past and Interesting Axes
After cleaning themselves of the residue from the exploding Mimic, Gimdalf went to investigate the remains. He found a shiny green amulet in the pile of sludge, which started glowing and vibrating after he picked it up. He threw it down again and called to the others to get down. Before they could do anything however, a bright green flash washed over them and drowned out their senses. When they could see and hear again, they were in the same coutyard as before, but now the grass was green and there was sky visible above. Heavy smoke floated overhead and ash drifted on the wind. Strangely, their injuries from that day had disappeared, and all their spell-slots seemed to have filled themselves. Then three Tal'Nadir appeared out of nowhere in front of them. An old woman, a tall man, and a child. The old woman had the amulet around her neck. The Nadir beckoned the party to follow them to the Room of Axes, as there was little time and the contingency needed to be activated. The party followed them through the door which had been marked with the red-dot sign, but was now simple and plain. They asked what was going on and the tall man told them that the was coming and that soon the demons would break through the wards of the facility and get inside. As they ran through the facility, past other hurrying or scared Nadirians, the child pointed out areas where they shouldn't step on. Gram Crackers drew a quick map on the back of her shield as they went along. Gimdalf picked up the child, so that they could progress faster, although the old woman was still holding them back somewhat. Gimdalf tried to get some info on how to implant Aster Stones, but the only info he could get was that the locations the stones were implanted were called "Asterium Forges". They arrived in a large hall richly decorated with white double-headed axes. The three Nadirians went over to the giant statue that stood at the end and activated their amulet. Just before they disappeared, the woman told the party to hold back the monsters while they activated the contingency. After the three had vanished, a green shield sprang up around the statue, keeping the party from getting near.
