The Seekers fought valiantly, defeating Gar Shatterkeel. In the midst of this, Lantian found out that the alter was the seat of some great evil power. Flint banished Gar’s giant crocodile and the team took Gar’s metal claw and trident. They then quickly left with their new friend Darreth in tow. The team quickly left and tried to rest in the next cavern (with the black, amorphous statue). They were able to take a short rest but then realized the giant crocodile was coming. They quickly defeated it, but then found it was blocking the tunnel. Nessa squeezed over the top of it in search of the remnants of her magical rope. Lantian and Flint went off north west in search of a way around while Brenna went northeast and listened at a closed door (with Darreth in tow). Brenna heard two deep voices but couldn’t make out what they were saying. Nessa gathered up her rope scraps and returned to Brenna. Lantian and Flint unsuccessfully tried to sneak up on some minotaurs and then convinced them to come check out the defeated Gar Shatterkeel if they could get rid of the giant crocodile. The “Emberhorns” came along and met the rest of the group. They breathed fire and hacked with their greataxes to clear a way through the giant crocodile and continued on with the group to the Fane of the Eye. There, they found that Gar’s body was gone and decided the group was up to something. By that point, it came to blows and the group quickly dispatched of the Emberhorn clan-mates.
