Istivin : City of Shadows.
When the heroes struck a blow to the Malgoth by killing two of its servants – the Marquis and the Demon – its screams of frustration were heard by a vile arcanist known as Chrylis. For several months he has been creeping through Istivins shadows and it did not take him long to note that the cathedral was woefully understaffed and falling apart…
Only an old man and three acolytes tended the church.
Within a week he had all of the clerics under his magic control and watched Sarjins growing friendship with the old High Priest carefully through his slitted spider-like eyes… When Sarjin warned of great evil beneath the city and they ran excitedly off to face it, he was sure it would be the end of the group – such was his confidence in his dark master.
Yet it was no so ! The group rose from the sewers phoenix-like !
Prompting him to kidnap Algorthas – set a pack of Cranial Encysters onto the high priest gobbling him up – and transforming the acolytes before portaling them into the Far Realm, then taking the matter into his own hands to remove the Heroes from the Stage of ISTIVINs Dramas !
Hiding a dominated Algorthas in a corner to use as a bargaining chip if needed, he confronted the Heroes SUCH WAS HIS CONFIDENCE ! Which was also his downfall.
The party narrowly avoiding a TPK through the insightful use of powerful spells, magic fluff balls and a flying spear charge.
Is his mangled looted brutally hacked form, rapidly decrodeing on the marble floor of the temple a coffin nail like milestone in the Malgoths downfall..???
OR IS IT JUST THE BEGINNING OF A TIDAL WAVE OF ABYSSAL WRATH THAT HERALDS THE MOTHER OF ALL TPKS?
The Answer of course is … nobody.
Items looted Staff of the FAR REALM and + 3 Kaorti Ribbon Dagger.
Sajins wand is possibly still buried in the Temple somewhere …
