They agree to join the group in the search.

Session 49: (Progonust 783)

  • After gathering much information at the college, the group leaves, without Ari. They are ambushed in an alley, which they entered to follow a man that was following them.

Asinjin then teleports the group into the sewer, where the wizard is located.

  • They return to Phiam after being healed of the wounds in Messada. The group learns that the Illithid was captured with the Coutl and has returned to the outer planes where it serves its deity. It is attempting to find the throne which the group is searching for as well. Asinjin scryes it, and learns much of the information about it. It has visited many people the group knows to find more information on the throne. The illithid is pretending to be a mindshadow, leading a group of them, but hiding its identity. They learn that Belsaruius is being psionically controlled, and Ari has some psionic 'lice'.

Session 51: (10 / 783)

The group buys some replacement items. They decide to he north.
  • From the queen's castle, the group leaves on magical mounts provided by Asinjin. They are led by Lord Wokal. After two days, they reach the base of the mountain where the fortress is located. They scout it out and then camp. Asinjin retrieves Robyn through teleportation. In the morning, the go up the mountain and the entrance to the fortress. There, Ari detects a great evil. The group prepares and Maleek approaches the entrance. He is met a a deep grinding voice, speaking in Draconic. The group begins to flee when a white dracoliche jumps out.
  • Only Thadyus flees. The other fight. Asinjin prepares spells, but is harassed by the creature and unable to cast anything offensive. Ari, Parker, Maleek, and Lord Wokal fight. Asteric and Robyn grab and stop Thadyus, getting him to fight after a few moments. While Ari stands his ground, the others hit and run. The creature is damaged, but the group is hurt badly as well. Only Asinjin is unharmed, but still unable to help. Finally, Asinjin gets into the clear. The others have done notable damage to the creature when he unleashes fireballs and magic missiles. It is forced to flee upwards. A swarm of undead rats arrives to aid the creautre. Maleek takes Asinjin's bow and fires at it. Thadyus shoots at it. Parker casts fiery orbs at it. In a last ditch effort, it breaths again on the group and crashes to the group to crush them. The attempt fails and Ari is able to destroy it.

Robyn deals with the umber hulks. Finally, the beholder retreats, and disappears behind a gloomy wall and stone.

Session 53: (10 / 783)

  • Parker left the beholder room to scout for a safe place to rest. This followed an extended debate on whether to rest or press forward. He was confronted in short order by a dead shadowy man and four barbaric hunters of men. A fight ensued. Parker held his own against two while the others killed two others. Ari and Asterik killing one and Declan the other. The rush to aid a near dead Prker, and Maleek and Thadyius kill the third. The fourth, seemingly unstoppable, is stalled by Asinjin until Thadyius shoots his head off.
  • Still looking for a safe place to rest, the group presses forward. After tunnels and mazes, the come to a spherical library with a lone man seated at the center. He is confusing and not helpful, and appears to be the master of the shadowy men. The group exits the room, and after another corridor, comes to a room with spheres of trapped people at the top, four shadowy men near the bottom, and a black pit in the center.
  • Asinjin steps out onto the ledge above the room and is wracked with magical pain. He does however, put up and anti magic shell to protect everyone. The group demands things of the shadowy men, then attack from range. The shadowy leader puts up a prismatic wall to slow the group down. The trapped figures drop into the dark pit. The group moves to get around the wall. A tinker golem emerges from the pit. Another entrance to the room rumbles.
  • Once around the wall, the group demands the figures from the pit. The leader yells that they the group may take them. Asinjin dazes the shadowy men. Ten bull headed creatures come out of the pit and with the golem move towards the group. The rumble from the entrance continues. The group figures out that it can summon the people from the pit and they begin to do so. The shadowy men do not attack, but are concerned with the rumbling. Once the group has all the people they need from the pit, Asinjin tries to teleport them out, but it fails. Uscis bursts into the room.
  • The group loads the people onto the floating disc. Everyone rushes passed the golem towards the exit, except Asinjin. Uscis stuns Asinjin and begins to fight Ari. Maleek returns to help Asinjin and the two mount the phantasmal steed and fly to the exit. Ari holds Uscis off until everyone is safe and then withdraws. The shadowy men flee while attacking Uscis with magic. The golem attacks Uscis as well.
  • As the group is leaving, they are able to retrieve some of their stolen items from the pit. When the group exits, they are in the city a spherical city which is in every direction they look. Asinjin says, we are in Sigil, on the outer planes.

Session 55: (10 / 783)

  • After more discussion, it is decided that the group will split. Some will return to Habololy and other will look for the throne. Gnorris and Pliny will join the group and Robin in searching for the throne, the rest go to Mount Celestia and from there Habololy. After two full days at the inn, the group sets out. They pick up Apolonius, Pliny's brother to guide them and get them into the temple where the throne is located.
  • Before they get to the throne, they are beset by creatures controlled by the Illithid Imberb. A swarm of psionic mites, demons, and Slaad all try to stop the group. Asinjin deals with the Slaad, the others deal with the demons, and everyone takes care of the swarm. The group finally reaches the temple and manage to get inside after some diplomacy by Malik and the brother.
  • Inside, the group becomes separated from Pliny and his brother before entering a shadowy, ethereal place that appears to be a maze of Sigil. In the maze, the group is attacked by ethereal giant insects, but they drive them off. After some more time searching, the group finds stairs and a tall armored knight.

After setting off some traps, the two headed snake and woman begin to attack. The others enter. The group quickly destroys the woman, who turns into dust. A globe appears, which is also evil. They destroy it, and the snake tries to flee. The group destroys it as well. The woman left a journal, but they are not able to find any useful information in it.
  • The group goes back the other way, having come to a dead end. Ari discovers a passageway hidden in the blinding light. The group goes down it and finds writing on the walls. They are attacked by a whirlwind undead. After a long fight of spells against the creature, the group finally destroys it. A Prismatic Wall remains in their way. For some time, they look for a way through it. Then, Malek reads the writing on the wall and the Prismatic Wall becomes translucent. More debate, and then finally Thadius walks through unharmed.
  • Now with the throne in sight, the group one by one tries to reach it. Ari and Thadyus fail. As Parker and Asinjin discuss, Malek goes ahead and successes answering the questions and reaching the throne. *The group is taken to the seven heavens, to Stasis lair, as had been begrudgingly agreed upon.
  • They are given an audience with Stasis.
