After a couple more days on the road, we’ve made it to the small town that the missing father of the young female was last known to be. As we arrive I can tell me and Schurr were not very welcomed into this town, but we entered anyways. Since me and Schurr were not very welcomed, the others had to gather the information, we learn that this Timothy has made frequent stops at the general goods and the stone mason. We first stop at the stone mason, he tells us that he was hired by Timothy to create a stone warrior, but Timothy had blinded him till they’d arrive at the location, but he also tells us he had never finished because timothy stopped him before he could finish, he adds that it depicted a warrior. After the stone mason had given us all he knew, we went for the shopkeeper at the general goods store. He tells us that Timothy is a frequent buyer and has a few books holding for him. Don’t know why, but he turns to Astrid and says ‘hello, Timothy, how may I help you?", I’m a bit confused, but it doesn’t take much longer for me to figure out astrid had messed with the clerks mind. Anyways Astrid buys the books off of the merchant and some other items that Timothy had holding, everything for 2200 gold, the books themselves were 1200, quite a bit for paper with nonsense on them. We continue to look for Timothy, the shopkeeper tells us he lives in an abandoned fort, just a couple of hours out of town. We arrive at the fort, I go up to the door see if I can hear anything, I don’t, so Schuur gives it a shot, he tells us he hears nothing, so we enter. When entering, we see four statues each of them holding a chalice full of some sort of crushed powder. Anyway, me Schuur and Zarek go into the room on the far left of the building while Astrid and the dwarf go to the far right, don’t know where Mammon went but that doesn’t surprise me, he seems to have his own agenda. As we enter the door on the left, I see a dead hell hound on the ground and a burnt corpse on the ground, Zarek begins searching it while Schurr goes door to door checking what is behind them, I just stand around waiting to find this timothy so we can get back to Narwell. Shurr begins to leave the room, but one of the doors catches my eye along with Zarek’s. We go through it only to find a vast desert, thinking there may be something out here, the two of us continue on. After a while we see a small Kobold run away in fear towards us but runs right by us, we continue thinking nothing of it. We soon make our way to another door, only to lead to what must’ve been the other side of the building, as we pass through the door way, we start to hear loud smashing, as if stone was slamming against stone below us. Me and Zarek go towards the sound and spot a trap door, we go down only to find Schurr, Astrid, and the annoying little Dwarf looking into the room with multiple floating vials, and a 7’ tall stone warrior, this must’ve been the statue that the mason was talking about, because on of the feet was still in a solid piece of stone. I go to my left and start bashing at the golem, but surprisingly I miss and decide not to mess with that just yet, I jump up on the work bench that was in the middle of the room so I can re-gather myself for the fight. As I do, one of the vials comes at me and hits me and smashes, spilling oil onto me and my weapon, I’ll have to stay alert from other vials as i see Schurr on fire from hitting one of the vials. Behind me I feel a cold chain try to wrap me up, but I escape it’s grasp and am able to ‘kill’ it. I continue fending myself, as I see the Dwarf, Schurr and Astrid try to hold the golem, I hear them telling me to grapple the stone structure so that they may put some sort of helmet on it, I ignore them and decide to attack the glowing blue orb behind the statue. As i do, I get zapped by the lightning, and i see the orb glow red and blue now. Stunned, I freeze, but then another bolt strikes me and I back off. I see the dwarf on top of the golem and see the helmet was snugged onto the head of the construct. As that happens, Timothy, whom was knocked out before we got there, had stirred up, and we began to ask questions, and tell him why we were here. He tells us we must stop the orb from getting out of control, he tells us we need to pour some crushed minerals on it, he grabs a vile filled with the stuff and gives it to Astrid to pour on the orb, as she does, the whole fort seems to calm down and becomes quiet. As everything dies down, we see Mammon in rough condition, the Dwarf yells to him, “Damn, you look like hell!”, I couldn’t help from smirking. Anyway, Mammon passes us and smacks Schurr across the face, have no idea what that was about but again, the pathetic human made me smirk. He grabs the helm off of the now smashed golem and puts the helm on, he instantly falls asleep, and we start to make our way back to Narwell with Timothy to bring him back to his daughter.
