    Sheng starts assembling the part, conecting the gears, oiling the cranks, placing the levers and ropes in place, and a myriad of other tasks. He seems like a miniature clock craftsman working on a giant clockwork of sorts. He finishes the last touches, and inserts the piece the eladrin gives him. "It is done."

    Fenwick continues working the mechanism back and forth, trying to get it to catch. Eventually, something clicks.

    Trying to not embarrass oneself in front of the sorcerer again, Riardon tries to help Fenwick with the meachanism.

    Gensai decided the best way to light the fire would be with one of his powers. He drew his sword, and conjured a bolt of flame.

    Gears, cogs, and shafts spring to life as Fenwick sets the beacon mechanism in motion.

    On the floor above, flames erupt from Gensai's blade into the heart of the beacon, and immediately a blinding white-hot light explodes from within the glassy cage.

    A strikingly powerful beam of light cuts through the sea spray and arcs across the water, disappearing beyond the horizon.

    The party descend the stairs to check on their companions, but on their way, they are met by an apparition. It is the captian who gave Stang to Gensai.

    "Thank you for restoring the beacon. My soul was allowed to return so that we could show you our appreciation and further aid you in restoring the kingdom of Rioc Parvel."

    The apparition leads you through the rooms of the second floor. To Sheng he offers a set of bracers and a dagger. Both items are inset with deep blue gems that appear to have a storm brewing inside. The others in the party recognize the dagger as being similar (but not quite the same) to one they found in the thieves den a several weeks ago.

    Continuing through the rooms, Gensai is given a cloak interwoven with patches of Mythral, "This belonged to Bardor the Brave. Now it will fulfill its purpose."

    Turning to a fallen armoir , the apparition points to a full suit of chain armor lying underneath, "This armor was made for me, but I never had the chance to wear it. Where I am going, I will not need it, but you," he looks at Fenwick, "Have earned the right to carry it against our foes."

    Finally, the apparition turns to Riardon, "Oh healer and giver of life," he removes a pendant from around his neck, "I have no more need of this, but you must promise to keep the heir of Arkus's throne safe. He does not yet know his power." The apparition hands riardon the pendant.

    "And fiinally," he leads them into the ruins of what was once the captain's quarters and drags out a small chest, "Should you need finances, this should cover them." He opens the chest to reveal platinum coins and precious gems the likes of which none of hte group has ever seen, and small bar stock of curious metal, silvery, and brilliant wtih dark grain in its coloring that reminds Riardon of a picture he saw in Shear's library back in Walryn's lair
    Curious metal
    And with that, the apparition disappears, leaving the party to remember where they are. From without they hear the voice of Hankel shouting, and Riardon vaguely remembers hearing the sound of metal clashing on metal when he was looking for a lost part of the beacon.

    Hankel's voice carries through the arrow-slit windows from below, "Come back with our boat you confounded minotaur!"

    Hurrying down the stairs, the party is surprised to see that Tik-Chik is missing. Hankel is standing by the ladder that led (at one time) to their small boat, which is now a spec on water heading toward shore into the now rising sun.

    From behind them, they hear a noise, and a strikingly pretty lady emerges from the interior of the first floor.

    The party is taken even further aback by this turn of events since they were just inside, and saw nothing.

    Hankel addresses the lady, and none too politely, "And would it be too much to suppose that you can explain all this!?"
    The Lady
    As the confused party waits for the lady's answer, their minds are still on their disappearing boat, and the need to finish their mission to seat Hankel on his throne.

    The young woman has a grim expression as she looks about the ruin, haloed in pale flames that flicker in the empty white of one of her eyes. A steel staff is gripped in one hand, a knife of pale glass in the other.

    "Where did he go, you had to have seen him! He couldn't have gotten away already after all this time!" When she (presumably) gets blank looks she continues. "Rhagast the Marauder, minotaur the size of a wagon, broken horns, ugly as sin?"

    As Phoenix approaches and her fire mingles with the morning light, the silhouettes take shape. They are an eladrin, two humans, a dwarf, and an orc. Strange company to be sure, but all on amicable terms. Behind her rises a 5-story, ruined, stone structure some 80-100 feet high, fitted atop with a powerful beacon of light that penetrates the darkness as it rotates, scanning the horizon.

    Hankel, the dwarf, spits. Only now does everyone else notice the deep, fresh gash in the back of his head dripping blood down his back, "And you had best not forget to add ugly to thad description." Hankel turns around and points toward a gnat-sized blip on the waves to the east under the rising sun, "There is the coward! He took our boat. It was our only way on or off this island. A friend of yours?" Hakel hefts a large axe that looks oddly familiar to Phoenix, "Unfortunately, he took me by surprise. Otherwise I would have been able to give him a proper greeting." He eyes Phoenix suspiciously, "He came from somewhere inside the building, just like you did." he pauses, "I suppose you can tell me who this Raddagast character is?"
    OOC: I updated the rewards post to include fluff surriounding the time gold award, and a little nugget of story flavor as well.
