Princes of the Apocalypse

Lost and Confused!
Arya, Marta, and Hope

So with the group split up in half, Arya, Hope and Marta was “falling” through the portal with the figure with scepter following them. Marta passed out from being overwhelmed with everything she was seeing. The figure made it to the trio and grabbed Marta in her arms while yelling at other two to prepare for impact. They made it through the portal and landed somewhere in the dark. They all could see dark swirls of black, purple, and gray. Marta finally regained consciousness while being held by this figure.

The figure said she is Sunniva. She wanted to help them because what is happening should not be happening. She revealed that she know of each of the adventurers and why they are doing what they are doing. She also handed them a necklace.

She also asked each of them to meet her in private because she wanted to talk to each of them. So each of the trio took turns talking to her and after they learned new information about themselves and their weapons. With Arya, it took them a bit longer because Sunniva gave her a letter from her love.

The group was completely drained from the trippy trip so Sunniva told them to go ahead and rest for the evening, she will take watch for the night. When the trio turned around, they saw three tents. Sunniva told them that its for the night. So the girls went in their tents and rested for the evening.

In the middle of the night, Sunniva succumbed to sleep by magical means.

The trio woke up to find themselves in spherical cages. They took a moment to look around and they saw that they were being suspended in the air by the back of colossal elephants. They noticed that Sunniva was still unconscious. So they tried to wake her up but somehow got the attention of those who caught the group. They did something and the trio fell asleep again.

They woke up in a prison cell. They saw that they were all in the same cell, oddly enough, with their equipment as well. They looked around the cell. Arya saw an imprint on the ground that reminded her of her love, Sir Galahad. So she started to dig in that spot, while her familiar, Ghost, sat by her and looked at her odd. Ghost walked over to the corner and looked over at Arya then glanced at the corner. Arya saw Ghost doing that and she stopped digging. She walked over to the corner and dug a bit, she found a letter addressed to her. She read it and looked a bit confused. She asked Hope for help to translate a small part. When Arya understood what Hope was telling her, she repeated the same phrase.

Suddenly her rapier of dodging changed forms. It took Arya by surprise.

The Planar Weapon of Air.

At the moment, Marta was trying to open the door but with no success. SUnniva was trying as well and she didn’t have any luck either. Arya decided to try something with the bow. She loaded an arrow and drew the drawstring back. AT that moment, her arrow fell off and a bright orange arrow appeared in place. She looked a bit confused but decided to go with it. She aimed at the lock and let go of the arrow. The door was ripped off its hinges and landed 10 feet away. The four walks out very cautiously. They walked down the hall to find a large octagonal shaped room. They could see faint runes glowing on the ground but they couldn’t understand what it was. Suddenly they got attacked by four dark shapes.

Shadow

They managed to make it out of that encounter with little wounds. They saw where the second shadow angel escaped to. They followed the path into another octagonal shaped room. They could see a small octagonal shaped alter. In the room, they found out more about Raventh’s intentions and realized that they need to find their way back to the other two. They found out the potential location of the Temple of Earth, not the Temple of Black Earth. They believe that the Temple of Earth houses the portal to the Earth Plane. But also will have answers to their questions about the Black Earth Cult and the Elemental weapon they hold, the Ironfang. They explored the room a bit more and found a wall with stones jutting out in a circle on the wall. In the middle of the stone circle, they could see black goo moving, almost like it was alive and appears to reach for something. They saw a sign nearby saying the key to this door is something that is warm, red, and must be forcibly taken.

With that, Marta took out a dagger and cut Arya’s arm with no warning. They saw the blood from Arya’s arm start to float toward the black goo. When the blood touched the goo, the goo stopped moving and became more transcluent. They walked through the door and saw themselves in a dark room.

They approached the structure and saw that it was made out of bones. Sunniva refused to walk on it so she hovered 5 feet above it. The group walked up the structure with Sunniva’s comments of disliking the structure. They arrived to the top. Each of them jumped through the black orb which happens to be the portal back to the Material World.

They arrived in a completely different room.

In this room, they encountered Raventh again. But this encounter wasn’t very good for the four. They got to experience the devastating power of Raventh. Luckily for them, they had Sunniva there to help, and to be honest, if it wasn’t for her, the trio would have been dead.

Raventh disappeared in a puff of smoke but not before trying to take his battleaxe. Sunniva managed to stop him from taking it. Marta grabbed the battleaxe and was shocked to see what it did. IT changed size, from a battleaxe to a staff-like battleaxe. They asked Sunniva if she knew of any faster way back to Red larch. She answered with a yes but they will need to go outside of the temple. They walked down the stairs toward the outside.

They was floored with the sight they had before them.

They were standing on the “ground” and saw that the land they were standing on were indeed floating in the sky being held down by massive chains. Sunniva explained where they were and asked them to remember the location. Sunniva teleported the trio back to Red Larch.

They found out that they were gone only for roughly two hours. The trio didn’t believe them but they looked around and saw that the villagers were still cleaning up the bloody mess that Sunniva and the other figure made of the three cults. The trio with Sunniva’s help, decided to head to the Temple of Earth after discovering where it sits. There was a female in the inn that was more than happy to help the trio gain what supplies were needed and found wizards that could help them get to the Temple of Earth. At the end of the day, the trio met up with Sunniva and the girl outside of the village. They saw several people of different ages and races standing in a circle. Sunniva said she have to go quick and she will meet them there. The girl said that she is actual the keeper of the Earth Temple and she wants to help them to get there quickly because she knows of the dangers the Material World is facing.

At that moment, they were being attacked by a group of people that seems to fly around quickly while shooting arrows at the trio. Next thing they knew, they’re in front of the Temple of Earth.

They were taken aback by the sight. The Trio walked into the building and heard Sunniva’s voice talking to someone. They heard another voice talking back. They saw Sunniva standing on top of the structure that seems to be made out of bookshelves, with someone.

The Goddess of Neutral Magic, Lunitari

They met with Sunniva and her friend. Sunniva introduced her as Lunitari, the Goddess of Neutral Magic. She explained what was going on with the planar weapons and the elemental weapons. She also explained the difference between the Temples of elements and the Temples of the cult’s elements. She said that the cults’ temples are made out of evil and was not supposed to exist. Raventh toppled the scale of reality itself trying to become a God. Lunitari didn’t look very happy about what was going on. She asked the trio what they are doing here and what she can do to help. They told her of what was happening and what they learned. Lunitari told them to relax and she will find the tomes with the information they will need. Sunniva explained to them that Sunniva heard Lunitari and Solinari calling for her so she had to leave. She found out that she with Lilith and the three Goddess of Magic sealed away the Temple of Light to protect the Material World and the other planes from being exploited. She was keeping an eye on everyone, and she mentioned that she think Lilith was doing the same as well. Lunitari showed up with tomes and told them that to stop the Prince of Elemental Earth, Orgemoch, they will need to go back to the Temple of Black Earth and find the elemental node in the Black Geode below the Temple of Black Earth. She explained that they will need to strike the monolith with the Ironfang. She said something about very little time to get out before the whole node implodes. She said that they better hurry. She also mentioned that Nuitari is keeping an eye on the other two. Lunitari bid them farewell and vanished in bright red swirling orbs.

This is where Arya, Hope, and Marta is at. What happened to Shavalea and Corrin? Who is this Lilith? Could this Lilith be the figure with the fire and ice great swords?

Separated

After defeating the Cult of Black Earth, the group departed the Sacred Stone Monastery. They were heading to Red Larch to recuperate. However, on their way down to the town, they were ambushed by the remaining survivors of the Black Earth cult. IT was being led by a stone melder, Yarsha.Yarsha.jpg

She demanded to have justice for the fallen Earthen Prophet, Marlos. So she attacked the group with eight of her soldiers. To be said, Yarsha didn’t realize how powerful the group was and why Marlos fell so easily. She paid that price with her life. Little did the group know, Hellenrae was a part of the survivors that dint participate. She asked the group to let her leave in peace with the remaining survivors if they will not do any more of their previous evil doings. The group agreed to leave them alone as long as they honor their words. So with that, Hellenrae told the survivors to leave the prisoners and treasure that they found in the ruins behind because they will not have any need of them.

The group took the freed prisoners with them back to Red Larch. They managed to make it back and they were completely exhausted so they took to their rooms in the Inn that was given freely to them because they brought back some of the villagers back and the Inn keeper wanted to compensate for the deed.

Little did they know the next morning, the other three Cults heard of the Black Earth Cult’s demise. They decided to get justice, even though one of the cults dint really want to. The cult that dint want to, they were secretly glad that the Black Earth was gone. The night before, the Howling Hatred cult had a big celebration in the honor of the Black Earth’s demise.

That morning after the Black Earth Cult’s fall, the group met up in the common room. After a bit of eating and discussing the plans for the day, the deep gnome, Rukh, took Marta outside to talk to her privately. In that interaction, Rukh handed Marta a letter and described the person who handed her that letter came in bright swirling orbs of white light, and that she was stunningly beautiful. After Marta read the letter, she was suddenly stunned. Rukh saw what was happening and dashed inside and yelled for the others to come out. Only Shavalea, Corrin and Hope dashed outside. Arya remained back inside but stood by the door and peeked out.

They saw Marta standing in the middle of a half circle formed by three different group of people wearing colored robes with their respectively symbols.

They were the Cults of Howling Hatred(purple), Eternal Flame(red), and Crushing Wave(Blue).

When Arya was peeking, she gave out a loud gasp when she saw the red ornate robes of the Eternal Flame. She recognized the symbol instantly.

Raventh appeared with a deafening bang between the group and Marta. He said that this will be interesting to watch! His legs suddenly vanished and all you could see was a snake-like tail in place of his legs and he suddenly grew wings. That was when Shavalea realized that he was really her brother. He flew up above the inn and landed on the roof. He mentioned something about wanting popcorn because this would be so fun to watch.

At the same moment when Raventh appeared, Marta finally regained focus and shook out of her stunned state. She saw the people around her and realized what was going on. She took out a black stone with red veins and threw it up in the air, while casting Scorching Ray. She was surprised with what happened. The stone exploded in six pieces and was spread out through the three groups. It ended up in a scorching ray kind of explosion that reminds Marta of the fireball spell. After the dust settled, she saw that the cults were still standing. With that, each of the adventurers did something before something extraordinary happened.

The whole area outside suddenly got so dark. Then there was a deafening rumble when the ground in front of Marta opened up and a figurine flew through the ground and floated a bit in the sky. Those who tried to focus and see what they saw. They saw this stunning figure.

She summoned her weapons that appears to be some kind of long swords or great swords to materialize in front of her. One seems to be a form of fire sword while the other was a ice sword. She grabbed them with both of her hands and flew down toward the cults and slashed them. A good chunk of the group fell with devastating wounds

At that moment, the whole area became brighter and everyone except for the cults, felt immense warmth and love. The group looked up toward a bright light and saw that a figure was gliding down.

She landed in front of Marta with a soft thump. She looked over her shoulder toward the group and smiled before turning her head back to the cults. She reached up to the sky and called for her scepter. It materialized in bright orbs of light. She waved her staff and a blinding bright light came down and struck the cults. When the group could regain visibility, they saw the rest of the cults down on the ground. Some managed to scramble away, clutching their wounds.

The group heard a loud series of cussing coming from the inn’s roof. Raventh was standing and glaring at the two new figures. He yelled that they weren’t suppose to intervene and that if the group lost, he would be able to seize what he needed from them! With that being said, he pointed toward them and say hope you enjoy what is coming to you!

After he said that, the group saw that there was two portals growing in size. One in the sky, one on the ground. The sky portal glowed with purple light coming out, while the ground portal glowed with orange and white light glowing. The group suddenly felt like they were being sucked into the portals. Shavalea and Corrin couldn’t resist the pull toward the ground portal. They fell into the portal. Arya, Hope, and Marta were being sucked up toward the sky portal and failed to brace themselves. They flew up toward the portal. The last thing each of the adventurers saw was one of the figures heading toward them.

Shavalea and Corrin saw the winged figure with the great swords flying toward them looking very angry. It scared Corrin a lot that he couldn’t control his bowels. Marta, Hope, and Arya was very very dizzy but could see that the woman with the scepter jumped up after yelling something, heading to them. Marta was overwhelmed with the swirls and it caused her to pass out.

The portals vanished, but not before the two figures made it through the portals. Raventh cursed very loudly and said that it wont be the last time the villagers of Red Larch will see them!
