DM: Joseph “Grizzly Bear” Singleton
All Members of the party
J was late arriving to the game! The crew would all like to congratulate Cam Snapp in qualifying for the state in the mile.

Roy provided some last session recap.
The session begins with the party in a long gallery room with a pool. There are broken arrows carved of stone. Dead cultist pool is empty. The stone sluice in the room is also empty.
The party quickly recognizes that the arrows are carved into the Snake God – Merrshaulk.

Ebon listens at the door and hears nothing. He checks and notices that the door is unlocked. Trageon, being the hit point tank and party’s greatest warrior, is front rank…he opens the door into a dimly lit large chamber. At the front center of the room is a stone stepped raised dais with a sarcophagus. The walls are decorated with life-size frescoes of Nethevil and Anavria.

Voice: “You approach Diderius in repose. I know what you seek”
