Hello fellow adventurers.

May I request a moment of your time, I've heard about this place in passing. I am most curious about it.

If any have been or what this place is etc.. I would be most grateful to be educated about it.

Thank you kindly for your time.

Master will

From my understanding it is a fae prison of sorts contacting a litch who used to be a mage before he became corrupted by dark magics, it is comprised of 4 wings/segments which are intune with the cycles of the moon, at the centre of each wing there is a key and with all 4 keys we can access the centre and put the litch down before they can spread the undead they have been amassing within the prison

Hope this helps

Yours

High Guildsman Henry.

Thank you kindly, hmm l tell no lie l intently dislike the fae with a passion.

Would someone of my profession be of use in such a place? As I've been enteraining the idea of assisting. But would be loathed to be a burden to the group.

Thank you again.

Greeting Will

I shall be attending this place, and was also looking for information. If the undead are truly there, it would make sense to investigate. I thought Fae unreal, stories people tell children to make them behave. I know different from reading posts, and learning what I can of the world.

I'm unsure if anyone should go in, but undead need to be stopped before they hurt anyone, especially undead fae. I'm sure there may be rare ingredients in there to have, or other things that alchemist's would like?

Is there any other information to hand? As to what to expect? Who this person is who turned into a lich?

Just as a quick review to this the undead are just 'normal' undead like vampires, mummys and the like rather than undead fae, the goal is to put down the enchanter/litch at the centre of the prison and to stop any undead from escaping

That is a commitment, one perhaps easily forgotten by shorter lived races in only a decade or so. The liche will need to be dealt with eventually.

Here is my recollection of things, others who were there, if you would like to add to the report, it would be helpful.

Myself, Wisdom and a large gathering of adventurers went out to the dungeon, along the way we encountered some towns folk who were upset with the trial of Dugless, about how he is right about the guilds. The necromancer talked to them and calmed them down from sheer anger, then proceeded to have a chat with them all. I chatted to a few, heard their pleas for help and tried to understand their position.

After a while we moved on, after satisfied we had calmed the local villagers of their plight. We came to the dungeon and had to walk through a portal of some kind, which took us from a dungeon, to a meadow. It was not to deal with undead as first thought, but fae. We tried to reason with the first load of fae, but most wanted to just kill or fight.

We proceeded on and had to play many "games" to proceed, such as chess, where members of our party had to become chess pieces and act like them. We cleared the game easily with only a few people removed from the game. No one was actually injured.

We encountered many fae, but the notable thing I found were people had been kidnapped and bound in a circle, that Master Hulu said had drained some of his power, I know not how much, but I didn't ask. They say that they were in the local library, they felt a whack to the head, then woke up in said circle, we freed them and showed them the exit.

We proceeded through the part of the dungeon, and had to encounter more puzzles.

We eventually dealt with most of that part of the dungeon if not all of it, so we are very close to finishing that section.

The next time we predict it will be open is later this year.

I hope this enlighten people on what the situation is here, and how best to deal with fae, as they seem an interesting race, just interested in certain things.

A good summary from you all, thank you.

There are four chambers, each containing a different type of creature to fight through. These open upon the phases of the moon or by channelling Soulfire into the adjacent doorway. The rooms contain Fae, Undead, Automata and Fowlspawn; one type per chamber.

Upon defeating the boss of this chamber we found a key in the form of a magical flower. When used in the central vase it removed the Fae section, leaving the other three. The flower key cannot be removed, so there is no danger of someone undoing our progress. Once we have all four keys we can confront the Lich.

It is better to eliminate this threat as soon as possible, with each section being removed with no chance of the forces being re-established. This will take time however, the next expedition there is expected to be at the end of this year.
