    You are Maws, a dragon hatchling, barely a day old, and at the moment, you and your adoptive family are being attacked. A dracolich, its head larger than the inn in which you're staying, is attacking the city of Grendenholdt, your inn in particular.

    What do?

    You hop off of Sarah's head, gold coin clenched between your jaws, and dart towards the stairwell. "Maws!" She cries, running after you, as the rest of the party prepares to engage the behemoth.

    Turning around, you hop back into Sarah's arms, and she unceremoniously drops you in her pack, before returning to the party. Oglar is smashing any part of the creature that comes close, Rolf is swinging his giant axe with a fury, Sam... Sam is nowhere to be seen, but Sarah seems to be chanting something, as the creature, roaring and clawing at the building, continues its assault.
    >> Anonymous 04/17/10(Sat)18:28 No.9255409

    Is there anything at all we can do? If not just stay with Sarah. If there's anything we see coming for us, make sure she does not come to harm!
    >> That Motherfucking Goblin !XGZ8nDwSYI 04/17/10(Sat)18:31 No.9255475

    As you watch, one of the creature's claws comes tumbling down, crashing through the roof and the floor below, leaving a hole about twenty feet long. Suddenly, vines begin springing out of the walls of the inn, wrapping around the dracolich with increasing speed. After a few moments, tremendous vines are holding the creature to the ground, and the rest of the party hurries over to Sarah, the strain of containing the beast obvious on her face.

    "Do you have it?" She grunts to Oglar, and he nods, pulling a scroll out of his armor.

    >> That Motherfucking Goblin !XGZ8nDwSYI 04/17/10(Sat)18:35 No.9255521

    Oglar unfolds the scroll, which bears what looks like a handprint on it. He places his hand against the print on the paper, mutters something, the paper begins to glow, and then suddenly the glow is everywhere, and it feels like you're falling.

    Finally, after what seems like an eternity, the light fades and the falling sensation stops, as reality swims back into focus. You're in a room carved from granite, lit by torches and filled with barrels.

    Well, the way I sees it, one of two things just happened:

    THe party was tricked into killing our mother, which the evil lich/wizard had planned for so that he could raise her as a horrible undead abomination

    The barrels are large, and most seem to be leaking. The torches are burned down low, and you can tell that this place has been abandoned for a while. Oglar sighs, removing his helmet, as he walks towards a set of stairs at the far end of the room. "Come on guys, we need to get set up before Zohrn locates us again."

    You nuzzle Sarah by way of an apology, as the party moves towards the back of the room. The barrels smell like fermented fruits and vegetables, and the only exit you can see is the stairwell leading downwards that the party is approaching.

    Apparently, the dwarves dug too greedily and too deep, releasing something that laid waste to their underground kingdom. The carvings of this event are very faint and sketchy, but a short ways farther down the wall, the carvings depict the creature being struck down and imprisoned.

    We don't know where the phylactery is, or even what it is at this point. We know the party is battling a Dracolich, and that a wizard had pointed them at our Mother's lair in hopes of finding the phylactery.

    You don't need special abilities to detect the levels of magic emanating from the pit.

    You can detect some very powerful urge, but it takes you a while to realize what it is - Hunger. A hunger unlike anything you've ever felt before.

    Arriving at the console, Oglar pulls a small bag out of his armor, and an ornate, silver key off of a string around his neck.

    "As soon as we know it worked, activate the scroll." Oglar says, key in hand. "Got it?" He asks, looking at Sarah. She appears close to tears. "Oglar, I... I..." "GOT IT?" He asks again, and she goes silent, nodding. "Alright then." he says, and with just a moment's hesitation, jams the key into the corresponding slot on the console, and twists it.

    Immediately, you can hear the sound of chains rapidly moving, retracting into the platform.
