Being on edge is one thing , but being attacked from beyond is a another , the lighting shape circles around the hidden Elrath, as he stalks his prey from the shadows , then like a streak of lightning, a sword arm flashes out for the lighting storm, quicker than a blink striking at Elraths throat . But the honed warlocks blade , defends the blow by pure instinct , as creature of darkness steps from the lighting ,you see a tall dark willow thin humanoid almost 7ft tall , as quick as flash , Elrath attacks in a blur , damaging the monster who turns back into lightning , surprise on his face . Disappearing into the fog.
" Beware the Lightning " Calls Elrath to the others "its alive !!!"
As the heroes dispatch the creatures with little resistance , they move closer to the jeweler`s , what they see , causes them to pause . A huge rift in the ground , with an intense purple glow , looking down Ulfar and Hamon see a huge mosaic on the floor , with strange runes .
"Any ideas ? " Says Ulfar
" Well by the look of it , these are either Elf or Drow origin , id have to take a closer look" says Hamon "But by the looks of it , it seems to be a teleport of some kind but nothing ive seen before , this is more the Harkles territory or the library at Silvery moon than my own , as i said id have to get down for a closer look "
"Lets get these diamonds, its just up ahead and then lets look " says Demavril
" We have company " whispers Elrath "MOVE NOW!!"
With that 2 more Insectizods and more zombies appear
"ENOUGH " growls Ulfar " I GROW WEARY of this CURSED place!!"
"TEMPUS ………… HEAR ME "
With that a huge torrent of electricity and light blast forward and smash the huge insect creatures into vapor , falling to his knees he makes the sign to Tempus and feels relieved he has at last been heard .
" Have faith" as a golden voice fills his head "when the time is right you find me my son"
The battle with the zombies is short and explosive , "Over hear " calls elrath "what do you make of this wound , Ulfar ? "
Looking down at the broken corpse , Ulfar examines the zombie , " The brain has been forcibly sucked out of the skull, what ever did this feeds either on the brain tissue or the glands , thyroxin possibly ?"
Looking down the fissure , "that makes sense " spits Demvaril "he points at a huge mound of skulls at one end .
