0700 Wednesday, the 4th day of High Rush, Year 3 EP
The party continues to explore the halls of Dakaszefon, following the directions given to them by the medusa in their search for the topaz idol “The Grasping of Agramax”. They head down towards the blue layer where the cultists are supposed to be and run across two galkagath cultists. They chat for a bit before continuing on down towards the main worship chamber. Discovering the congregation mid-sermon, they chat with the galkagath priest Gloxl who communes with them telepathically. It informs them that it’s willing to make a trade for the idol, but can’t say so in front of their congregation. All the while ranting aloud about how blasphemous and foolish the party is, of course.

They meet with Gloxl and discuss the possibility of a trade. Eventually they come to an arrangement and the priest leads them to a secret chamber near the main entrance to the hold where the idol is traded for the fine tapestry the party stole. They also get a bit more insight into the layout of the hold from Gloxl. It describes a path to the teal layer (where the thief of the medusa’s wine is supposed to be) that doesn’t require going through the cultists’ territory.

The party heads down the trichroma hall to the green layer where the discover the source of flickering light in the green main chamber. The chamber has been picked clean, but a large hole has been dug at one end of the room and a fire rages below. They follow the rough directions Gloxl gave them and end up in the central teal layer. It seems there’s a mercenary company that’s squared away a corner of the teal for themselves. They pay the toll of ten copper to get entrance and chat with the elven door guard for a bit, discovering they have supplies and training areas down here, all available for trade.

Scratch pays a visit to Mavo, a dwarf fixer here in Gehesti.

The negotiation goes poorly, but Mavo hands over a cheap brass and tiger eye ring to get rid of him.

Sunday, the 22nd day of Waxing Rush, Year 3 EP

Having spent a few days mostly successfully navigating their new subterranean environs, they finally find the underground lake outside the bright orange great entrance to Dakaszefon. Rubble is scattered outside, the main doors have been completely removed, and the flicker of firelight shines from within.
 They venture carefully into main entry hall on the orange level and find a stairway on the left leading up into the red layer. They are thwarted by a locked door but find a chamber beyond with barrels of drink, signs of recent habitation, and a large (3×2 meter) tapestry depicting a a deep open mining shaft with the glorious fires of dwarven industry. Scratch takes the tapestry down, triggering a makeshift gas trap which isn’t too bad, but sends Anadkya into a teary choking fit which she recovers from shortly. They decide to roll up the tapestry and make camp outside the main entrance.

0630 Wednesday, the 4th day of High Rush, Year 3 EP
Waking up from their needed rest, they head back into the hold. Heading back up the red stairway near the entrance, the explore the chambers more fully and find two kobolds hiding in the chamber beyond the one that contained the tapestry. A brief conversation about the party’s quarry (the topaz idol) reveals that it might be held by a group of oozes and frogfolk deeper in the hold. Leaving the kobolds they also find a chamber up here that contains yet more barrels and foodstuffs, as well as a heavy locked ironwood chest. Leaving it undisturbed, they return to the entry hall on the orange layer.

0645 Wednesday, the 4th day of High Rush, Year 3 EP
Opening the door opposite the entrance to the red stairway, they find an angled hall with three doors. One has loud (even through the thick stone door) splashing on the other side, and hen its handle is turned seals click open and water starts seeping through the cracks. They turn the handle back to seal it again and check the next door, beyond which they find a dining hall. Seated at the table are a dozen folks; mostly imps, but a halfling and a medusa are also among them. Chatting with the medusa they agree to make a good faith effort at returning a bottle of rare wine that was stolen from her in exchange for information on the hold. The halfling shows them her map of the hold and gives directions both to where the oozes holding the idol are located, as well as where they think the thief might be living. Apparently, the oozes as well as a giant frog have the idol and worship it like a god. The party thanks the group for the information and drinks, and parts ways.

He leads them in to chat with the rest of the team and up on the second floor they meet the others: Ghost, Crab, Rance, Bumble, and their seeming leader, Madshow. They chat a bit about the situation with Edward, and after some negotiation the Mad Pissers agree to hand over Edward’s contract and property if the party also accepts another contract that Madshow doesn’t have time for. It’s a job retrieving a family heirloom for a young dwarf named Kotri who lives in Vos Inaril. Her home, the dwarven hold Dakaszefon, fell into anarchy and disrepair to mysterious circumstances, and she’s hoping that a topaz idol of a dwarven head called “The Grasping of Agramax” can be returned to her.

A fight ensues which is over in seconds, one of the assailants being slain and the other two surrendering. They are revealed to be skeletons (not immediately apparent with their skin gloves), and after some questioning say that they heard from a hag fixer named Nine-Teeth that a valuable magic ring would be handed off here. They let the other two skeletons go after confiscating their knives. Handing off the ring to the maw who promptly leaves, the party splits up to tackle some legwork and loose ends.
