As The Sleeper Awakes
Went to the festival today. Stupid drunk dwarf fell asleep during our stories. I doubt his is anymore interesting. After the great sacrifice was complete, we learned we were to meet with the high priest the following morning. After drifting off to sleep, had a crazy dream that felt all too vivid. Fought some giant tentacle monster who was very powerful. The weird leader guy encouraged us to rip out the stone eye. He then split it into shards that each one of us was given.
Guards took us straight to the High Priest. It was apparently a “great honor” to see and speak to him without his mask. He told us how Shil’Kah is actually a horrible beast that will rain terror and destruction all over Athas. We also learned that if one of the Awakening Stones were to come in contact with the Brine then a shell of Shil’Kah will awaken and that cannot be allowed. He fears that the haflings that attack the city walls every night half one of the Awakening Stones. Before heading out, we grab some gear from the drunk dwarf. We get some Velociraptor/Ostrich looking mounts and Anders speaks to some shady stranger to find out there are some Silt Runners that might help us.
We got to the Silt Runners hideout and met Shick-Tick. After trying diplomacy and intimidation my axe slipped and they became hostile. Several of their rangers attacked with blow darts severely injuring several of our party members. I dodged many attacks even though I had not been wearing my armor. My axe tore through several bodies and I was stabbed in the stomach by a bodyguard. Afterwards, I pocketed the dagger and scrounged around not finding anything.
