The party found themselves at the beginning of the session within the crystal cavern, having just fought some crystalline spiders. They managed to open another amethyst door by switching gems around on the cavern floor. There was a brief scuttle with the rogue concerning the possible worth in taking several gems and some swords, but the wisdom of the party forced him not to.
The party fought more spiders, and found themselves with the choice of two doors. One, after deactivating the exploding glyph and unlocking it with force, opened to a large space which contained four alters, each containing a magical item, and a large crystal statue of male genasi. The other room was much smaller, and contained a crystal tomb, in which lay a purple skinned genasi. This room also had two human sized genasi statues, each with their hands outstretched. No obvious doors were in sight, but Erevan could detect an arcane lock within the room. After much puzzling and frustration, Erevan the wizard knelt before one of the statues and held its hands. He felt some magic flow from the statue, and told the party to grab one of the outstretched statue hands.
This seemed to work, and a doorway opened up between the statues. A staircase lead down and into a large throne room. This room had columns lining both sides and a large chair at the end. Kratos sat upon the chair, and two crystal golems annimated and began to attack the party. With ease, the party took the statues down, and the throne moved aside to show a doorway.
Through this doorway, the party found themselves in a very large room, so to speak. This room extended seemingly endlessly to the left and right into darkness beyond. It had stone walls and floor, save for the very large amethyst door across from them. Between the party and the door was a deep dark chasm, and a single arched stone bridge across it. The party carefully tread across the bridge and found two dead crystal golems before the door. The party inspected the door carefully, but could find no way to open it. At this point, a tall and old eladrin stepped out from the shadows. Erevan immediately recognized the man as his own father, Urea’Nilas. There was a brief verbal exchanged between the man and the party before he summoned small elementals and the battle began.
The battle took all of the party’s resources, and in the end one of their own died, but Urea’Nilas was defeated with cunning and teamwork.
After they gathered their strength again, Erevan, ever curious, inspected the large amethyst door one more time. This time however, the door opened, and a female genasi emerged, dealing heavy blows to the wizard. She backed off after she realized that the group meant no harm to her, but she warned them that Urea’Nilas was still alive, somewhere within the cavern.
