After spending hours sorting through trash and rubble to find dwarven treasures and examining said treasures and the ancient gate that lies inset in the floor of the deepest chamber of Khuldun, Borric, Nathan, Sylvain, and Zelena return to the top of the mountain known as the Three Crones. The sun is low to the horizon and it is clear from their experience ascending the mountain that they don't really have enough time to descend, even with greater ability for flight than just four days or so ago when they climbed up.

Once again the four adventurers camp in Khuldun. The night is quiet and passes uneventfully. The next morning Borric, Nathan, Sylvain, and Zelena prepare themselves for the descent. With the bronze griffon and various flight abilities the way down the mountain is much easier and it occurs to you that either the dwarves intended to fly from their fortress, however unlikely, or that they only expected to travel from Khuldun through the gate within.

Nearing the clearing where the group began their ascent, all can hear a joyous barking. When the four reach the clearing Celebfedhiin bounds up and runs round all four but ends by jumping up, placing front paws on Zelena's shoulders and welcoming her with big, sloppy, dog kisses.

Aldino totters up from a rickety camp chair set in front of a half-rigged tent and approaches. His eyes are wide and shining, he licks his lips nervously, and holds his hands clasped together in front of him. "You made it! Of course you did; I knew you would. That was clear when..." He breaks off, grinning at all four and trying to avoid being knocked over by the over-joyed Celebfedhiin. "It's good to see you back!"

Borric sets down one of the bundles of loot they brought of the dwarven stronghold as part of Aldino's share. He pats the excited dog on the head, when he leaves off trying to cover his mistress's face with sloppy kisses to pay him some attention. Luckily, Celebfedhiin is more interested in Zelena and is easily nudged away to return to licking the gnome's face off.

"You bet, grandpa! And look what we brought ya."

"Here, check it out."
He opens up the sack of gold and trinkets they gathered to give to the old man.

Letting Aldino look inside, he asks, "What you been up to these past couple days?"

Syl, despite himself, was very happy to see the old man. "You'd have been proud, Aldino. We fought all kinds of strange creatures, and check out all the dwarven gold we have brought you back! Your sources were right. You are now a rich man!"


Syl was also happy to see Zelena's mutt as well, just generally being excited about the successful mission.

"Yes, yes my friend. We are back..." Zelena says to her hound as she comes to welcome everyone back all excited as most dogs are when their masters return.

When Celebfedhiin is settled some and at the gnome's side she scratches her head behind the ears, she greets Aldino, "Thank Aldino, it is good to see that you are good as well. Those crones treat you alright while we were gone?" The gnome looks about, "Where are they anyhow?"

Aldino's eyes go wide and his jaw goes slack in wonderment as he gazes at the treasures that Borric and Sylvain have said are his. He looks up blinking, eyes filling with water. Suddenly he throws back his head hooting with laughter and dances a little jig right there in front of everyone that gets Celebfedhiin excited and running in circles all over again.

When Zelena asks about the crones Aldino stops his little dance and shuffles his feet in the dust. He scratches his head which causes his wispy hair to stand out from his head and enhances the uncertain look on his face. "The crones are... Oh dear, how do I... I don't know what happened up there but it changed 'em."

From around an obscuring rock comes a familiar raspy voice. "I don't feel any different. I don't look any different. You're clearly unhinged, old man! Shoulda tossed you in the cook-pot the moment your friends went up the mountain; now it's too late, I suppose."

The hideously ugly, wall-eyed leader of the crones waddles around the big rock glaring. She is followed by a matronly woman, plain but strong-looking, and a young maiden of astounding beauty. The maiden smiles and it is like the sun, obscured by clouds, has come from behind its veil to light a pristine snowfield with dazzling brightness.

Borric is struck by the beauty of the woman.

"Why you ol' coot. Look at that!"

"You went and made one of the old hags into a young maiden. Nice!"

The brash fighter clanks over in his impressive-looking and shiny platemail, a far cry from the dull black hideous suit he was wearing before. He looks the part of a hero, even if his attitude towards chivalry is off the mark.

"Tell we this is not a dream, milady. What has happened to cause- ... I think you must kiss me to prove that I am believing it to be real."

Though in truth, Borric is hoping for a lot more than just a kiss.

Syl gapes open mouthed at the change that has taken place with two of the crones. Like Borric, his attention was focused on the stunning creature in front of him. "Is someone playing a joke on us? Aldino, what exactly is going on here? How long have these two been different?"

Syl's mind was flooded with numerous questions, but that was all he could stammer as he continued to slack-jawed stare at the third 'crone.'

Zelena watches Borric and Syl go gaga over the hag, albeit in younger form and rolls her eyes and starts in on them hoping to get a point across before someone gets into trouble... or worse, "You guys do realize that they are still the crones that we met prior to our assent? Sure they look a little different... same crones though..."

"Good day to you three. A most interesting transformation, perhaps you could explain what has happened?"
the gnome asks turning to the crones, and then adds, "Preferably before the boys start drooling."

The maiden's laugh peals out like celestial bells and the crone puckers up and makes repulsive, wet kissing noises aimed in Borric's direction.

It is the matron who answers the questions, however. "Our curse was lifted when you beat back the darkness that followed the dwarves to our heart and destroyed or drove them to madness. For that you have our gratitude."

"Don't be a-makin' promises," mutters the old crone.

The maiden smiles but to Borric's dismay her attention is fixed on Sylvain. Maybe it's the scorpion on his shoulder that has her attention.

Borric is not bothered by the pretty one's rebuff. It happens regularly enough. He pretends the old hag did not offer herself and asks instead, "What's this curse you speak of?"

"Why did it only work partially on her and not on that one?"

The brash fighter gestures to indicate the middle-aged and older crone in turn. He is curious, but these sort of matters are beyond his ken. His own expertise was abruptly circumvented when the young one deflected his own experimentation.

"Blight would be more accurate, perhaps," says the Matron. She looks from the crone to the maiden and back to Borric. "And this is as we are; we have been restored."

"That which is Broken is weak," interrupts the old crone with venom. "But nothing you can do about it."

The three women lock gazes briefly before the matron returns her attention to the adventurers. "As before, you are safe here. Rest as long as you need before you begin the next leg of your journey." While you could continue to press the three women before you for further explanation it seems fairly clear that they are reluctant to share some secrets.

[sblock=OOC]Ready to head off to Gist unless you really want to continue the conversation with the women.[/sblock]

Zelena listens to the woman and gaugues how they are responding she then asks, "So you were cursed... by the dwarves? Or something else? Without sharing whatever secrets you wish to keep yours, what else did you not tell us of what was up that mountain and in Khuldun? I get it, that you did not mention anything before because you three would rather not be indebted to anyone, but it seems over, can you share what you know now?"

"Waltor, I think she's keen on...well, one of us at least. You want to go talk to her,"
the witch asks with a laugh. "Crones generally don't make the best of bedfellows, no matter what Borric might tell you!"

The witch listens intently to all the talk about the curses and issues related to the crones.

"We were blighted by what followed the dwarves..."

"Dwarves of Old were oh, so Bold..." the ugly crone begins dancing a jig as she chants.

The matronly crone ignores her and continues. "...and bound to not speak directly of it." She frowns and her brows knit together in worry. "A shadow of that darkness rested in Khuldun; beyond the gate slumbers the greater darkness. We only know that the dwarves were terrified of it, and you yourselves witnessed the madness brought on their descendants by it and how it twisted the heart of the mountain."

"Be warned!"

Aldino looks askance at Zelena. "Oh dear. You're not thinking of going back up there are you?"

Borric snorts at Syl's comment about what he has to say regarding the frequenting of brothels and such.

But the crone's other information draws his attention, "So that walking pile of rocks that was harder to kill than the other two was related to the curse. Hmm, well it wasn't so tough. With you guys supporting me, we could handle a couple more."

"However, heading into the unknown to go after trouble for trouble's sake is not as appealing. If there was a fair maiden to rescue, then I am all for it. Piles of more dwarven treasure will be just fine as well."

"But you don't have to come with use, grandpa. In fact, whatever we do, we can see you back to civilization first. I think we should check on the lizard to make sure everything back there is up to snuff while we are at it. I still think we should have gotten a percentage back there."

[sblock=OOC]Stupid site troubles! I double posted Borric and cannot delete the second. So I will rant instead. :p

I am getting tired of the slowness of the site. It kicks errors and stuff too when trying to post or go to threads. I have not received a notification in days, though I was getting a few when I was quoted or mentioned. Now nothing. I would have thought this would have bee resolved by now.

Anyway, I was fine with heading to Gist whenever. Any news on jkasen?[/sblock]

OOC[sblock] Thanks to PM, I think Syl is finally ready for 8th level. I bought a Ring of Protection +2 and a few scrolls to add to Waltor's known spells. Here are my spellcraft checks to see if they take...I need a 2 or better. Black Tentacles 1d20+17=18. SMIV 1d20+17=24. Son of a b*tch, I rolled a one, lol. There goes 700 gp![/sblock]

"I see and understand." Zelena says as she recalls that the Crones could not say something to them.

She looks back to Aldino, "Yes actually. Since the our hosts already know of it I will mention it in their company. There is a gate, one of those Gates of E'n up there in the dwarven place. I was kind of thinking of trying to use it... see where we end up and all. After we re-provision that is."


[sblock=ooc]Hmmm.... to bad we did not have enough funds to make ourselves a new home/base out of that dwarven place... and if you could figure out how the gate worked to send you to a specific place... *grins* The illusions of grandeur I suppose.

Re site troubles... time for a new board for our game perhaps? EN is going to be down Wed or Thurs again for a day. [/sblock]

The matron scowls at Borric obviously of the opinion that Borric and Zelena are not taking the threat beyond the gate seriously enough. "The dwarven race, the greatest wizards and warriors on E'n and beyond, was laid low by what lies beyond..."

"Oh dear," murmurs Aldino.

"...but Pride became their Fall..." the crone continues her jig around Borric but swings her bony backside to bump into Nathan.

"I think it is brave," begins the maiden who up until now has remained silent. Her voice is low and sultry, laden with promise, and immediately gains the men's attention again. "And the dwarves themselves would tell you they were felled by the Envy of the dark races, dragons and orc among them. Should you brave the gate you'll need whatever strength you can muster. Perhaps a bit of their own magics would help..." She smiles but the crafty smile sits oddly upon her beautiful face. The maiden approaches Sylvain and reaches a hand out to his shoulder holding her palm level. Waltor scuttles forward hesitantly but after a few clicking sounds from the maiden he moves onto her outstretched palm. Moving Waltor towards her mouth she whispers some unintelligible words in a breathy voice to the scorpion. Waltor bobs in time to her words but the moment suddenly passes and the maiden replaces the scorpion on Sylvain's shoulder.

[sblock=Gerald]Remember when I offered Sylvain a spell from the crones and you declined? I think I can give you a circumstance bonus to Waltor's learning of Black Tentacles instead. It'll still cost what you paid for it, but you can add the spell to your known spells.[/sblock]
