The party went to the aid of lady Elise after hearing odd Reports of strange Necromancy. the Lady had led an assault on the crypt knowing full well that if the corrupt were involved she would not survive the encounter. the party was simply unable to ignore the possible involvement of corrupt legion.
Luck was on there side and the corpses appeared to be garden variety but the source of them was not. the party found our handmaiden Siri om locked in combat with many undead foes. and rushed to her aid making quick work of the horrors. a Strange magical item bound by a Mechanical device appeared to be dragging corpses from tombs and animating them in sequence. thanks to some quick thinking and luck Lithica was able to disarm the device. yet it’s origin remains a Mystery, research will be necessary to unlock this secret.
However there was little time to fret over the device Siri tended to her wounds and urged the party to head still deeper in the crypt. The party advanced and stumbled on a dark scene. lady Elise was locked in combat with what appeared to be the corrupted corpse of her own mother. a shadowed figure took note of our groups arrival and vanished into the night with a bag strapped to her back. The party advanced on the dark remnant. Grey felt the protection from his soul bound Obsidian take root around Lady Elise and the combat began.
Lady Sivastes corrupted form was a dark shadow of her former self. the long dead body was weaker than the dark generals the party faced on the ship during there first encounter, However her strange power remained she veiled herself in desert sand making her insubstantial and resistant to damage. however she was no mach for the wealth of Disabling effects heaped upon her. and to boot lady elises blades could somehow strike true. the remnant tried to fight but ultimately the party tore through her like a 4 day old bowl of Spicy chili and Lady Elise struck the finishing blow, bringing her mother back to rest and ending the emotional event.
the party returned to the surface only to find the Grand Magister had arrived at the city to assist or so it appeared. the party stood by lady Elises side while they shared words none of them pleasant. Still raw from the battle with her mother Lady Elise had no time for formalities.
Lady: “Why are you here uninvited!”
Magister: “I am here because I heard disturbing rumors that Corrupt legion may have reached the shores of our continent and as you are a Child i was uncomfortable leaving the task to you alone.”
Lady: “I am not alone, Nor am I a child and you have arrived just in time to do nothing and go home. the situation is under control”
Magister: is that what you call a cult of corruption worshipers blowing holes in your populace, perhaps this Theocracy has corrupted your understanding of the concept of control. No I will judge that myself after i examine this crypt. step aside.
Lady: My mothers Crypt has faced enough desecration for one night. you are deluded if you think i will allow her murderer to wander it’s halls.
Magister: “foolish one, your mother is already dead I’m not likely to kill her again. and Corrupt legion aren’t something you can pray away if they are not dispatched properly the entire continent could be overrun. this threat is bigger than your feelings of angst Girl. Your council has given me permission to examine the area, perhaps you should speak with them before you continue this pointless conversation”
Lady elise recoiled in Shock as one of the council members emerged from behind the magister. “He speaks true my lady, we had no idea if you were safe. we held an emergency session while you were in the crypt and decided the cost would be to great to not act immediately” Siri approached the Lady and cautioned restraint "my lady we are in no shape to fight him now. The lady felt exhaustion catch up to her as she moved, Grey caught her and walked aside her to the airship.
Siri and the party moved into the conference room to speak and we will catch up with the party in the air ship after the events of the evening……….
Oh yes and EXP for the last fight please add +14,000
