As the fight for the tower ended, we found ourselves beside a doorway. The doorway was filled with light. Almost sunlight in quality and I was drawn to it. We’d only been underground a few days, but my heart sang at the thought of sunlight.
“We need to see where this passage leads.” I kept my voice firm and emotionless. I didn’t want anyone to know how much the light affected me. (more…)
The heat was intense. Standing in the hallway and looking out at the Fiery Sanctum, the heat hit me in waves. The bubbling pools of lava and the islands of flame were intimidating.
After the Farastu attack we rested. As we sat around, breaking our fast the next morning we discussed next moves. Down one hallway was a bright glowing light. The opposite way there were several doors we could try.
“There might be treasure behind those doors.” Theresa smiled sheepishly.
“Aye, or monsters. We might want to secure our retreat.” Durilin nodded in a satisfied way as if that settled it.
