Heroes of Overlook

Psecils Journal: Entry 37

Dues's Ex Machina

We came across a wayfaring stranger in the room adjacent to where we nearly fell victim to charmed tables of gamblers ruin, he seems harmless, if not a bit estranged from the ways of the standard plane. One has to wonder how long he has been lost in the Feywild… I digress, in the room we located this man in a rather elaborate illusion managed to befoul what is normally our typical battle luck; we kept hitting our allies! (and for once it wasnt simply miscues in combat) It was almost as if this particular trap sought to turn us against each other in frustration, unfortunately for this scheme, we are well used to poor battle lines. If anything these provided a sort of karmic justice to Riardon who is the most frequently guilty of friendly fire in the most literal sense. As I myself looked for a way to elude my doppleganger, unsessefully I might add (as I understand it, Calrissian attempted something similar but lacked the speed and heed to avoid the charmed table traps). Johanna devised the way to dispel the persistent illusions.

After finding a hidden passageway in the next segment of the building we managed to follow it to the original cavern past the Weeping Angels statues, knowing we had disabled any real danger we took a brief break. Continuing back up to the buildings led us to another room, this one covered in ivy. As always, our overcurious nature brought the guardian of this room on us. All the plant life within sprung to life as if a Ivy Archon in a bipedal form. It would lash out at us from the walls themselves by sticking its vine arms into the main growth. Luckily our group as always excels in combat and dispatched it fairly well, if only the same could be said for our luck with the door puzzle we had already witnessed hints to in tapestry…

We lost a lot of time on that damned door, and many of us were hurt quite a bit thanks to its harsh treatment of trial and error. Luckily once again the unusual tag-team of Warlock and Cleric devised the answer, in fact it had looked all of us in the face multiple times! The tapestry itself was the way in the entire time. Passing finally we arrived in a room of arcane design with numerous staves and rods channeling energy to a central point. After locating another piece of The Artifact that was being used in the arcane machinations to some Gods forsaken power source (what we do not know yet) our wizard forcibly removed the part,and an other-worldly scream echoed from somewhere. None of this bodes well.
