On leaving Maermydra, the party was greeted by a man on the edge of death. He handed the party a strange dagger with instructions to give it to a wizard named Tryahl. Another drow, a deadly fighter named Opthalion pursued them on a account of the dagger but was evaded for a time.
This blade, upon closer inspection was magnificent. It bore the make of one of Pelor’s finest and at the will of its holder would transform from a dagger to a bastard sword in an instant. One mark marred its appearance though. Though our party did not yet know its history, this mark, a deep red gash running down it’s silvery blade was a curse upon the sword. This curse was performed with the very blood of the great Kige himself and was cursed for his very ruin, but that is getting ahead of things.
They reached the surface to find a world quickly changing. With larger forces quickly converging on this place. An earthquake, felt even deep in the earth, had occurred. Some said Kige had returned and the earthquake was actually Kige and a powerful Fiend of Hell falling from the sky in an entangled battle. Strange lights where seen in the sky, strange beings met.
The Island outpost was compromised. A group, calling themselves the Red Knives wanted the sword and offered a chance for our party to join, an offer never taken.
The party became attached to the Yuan-ti, a force that was silently taking over most of the dark armies in the area. It was upon this mission that the parties differences finally overwhelmed it. Dackryth and Davhorn had despised one another from the start. Now fear led the old man to remove the warrior before his hot temper was turned full against him. While Ich-ben Scouted and Chathrin and Davhorn slept in a cave the move was made. Traxill buried his dagger in the Barbarian’s back. The party instantly turned on itself with Ich-ben and Chathrin blooding Dackryth before Traxill escaped. They would have pursed if the yuan-ti had not intervened. The body of Davhorn and the unconscious Dackryth were taken with the others back to the yuan-ti lair.
It was a dark day.
