Our party finds itself answering to the call for brave adventurers that was posted: “Your great services are required. Val-Vale’s stronghold is in need of strong seasoned adventurers to take on a task of great importance. Handsome reward upon fulfillment.”
They met Janis The Just, the commander of the King’s guard and leader of Val-Vale’s city which personally vetted them. After swearing them to secrecy about all employment details. He called on the court mage Heironimous to give them information on the component he is sending them to find: a Sphere of Amber, as well as the place they’re hoping they can find one, the East Wing of The Majus Ruins.
What purpose will this component serve? Janis refused to answer anymore questions about it; “We’ll see if you come back alive anyway.”
The old academy ruins proved to be a treacherous place, riddled with slimy occupants and haunted swords. Amongst them the party found a Vicious Sword, which they wisely took precautions with. After part of the party played a dangerous chess game, while others opted to bash a door in, they arrived at a central juncture. There, in the darkness, they began hearing the babbling of what seemed to be a hundred voices.
