Synopsis:
After going down the stairs of The Northern Tower, the Band of the Wolf entered the Tokraka Dungeon. They recognize the battle damage done on the last time they were at this dungeon The Black Pit Part 1 and The Black Pit Part 2 and continue to secure the areas they explore last time and to explore the areas that they didn’t explore last time. They followed the tracks of the mines in direction to the blocked entrance. There they found out that someone had performed a ritual that turned five of the miners killed 500 years ago into Wraights and the ritual pentagram was keeping them respawning and tied up to the mine as a protection of some kind.

Frutumal casted invisibility to undead on Raizak who studied the pentagram and discovered that it needed a combination of Turn Undead, Dispel Magic and Disable Device to destroy it. Dio, Raizak and Daero did the right combination and the wraights were place to eternal rest.

A mummy dress in nithian ornaments was seen fleen the scene toward the lower levels.

As expected, the Monster Scarab Beetle Swarm was below on the Nithian Crypt. The Band battle the swarm and tried to localize the golden scarab using a Detect Magic spell. The battle was fierce. The golden scarab was on a wall at the end of a tunnel and the mummy casted invisibility on it to hide it. Frutumal used purge invisibility and the Band was able to target and destroy the golden scarab and at the same time battle the second swarm.

The crypt was built to study the ruins in the next level below Tokraka Dungeon Ancients. The mummy left was a wizard who was tasked with the protection of the archeological site from the enemies of the Nithian Empire, the Milenian Empire.

After some rest, the Band of the Wolf go deeper into the dungeon and enter the throne room of the giant skeleton Tokraka Dungeon Ancients. After Frutumal activates the throne they find out that the place is a ritual of passage for giants. The giant is teleported to the place, he touches the throne, the skeleton on the throne speaks, a challenge is declared and the giant has to fight a Colossal Giant Scorpion to the death.

The wall raises and the scorpion appears and the group has to fight against the deadly giantic pincers. They are heavily wounded and expend many resources. Raizak, as the killer of the scorpion is marked with a strange giant symbol.

The group exit the dungeon again to fin Patriarch Ino Padri waiting for them. They show the objects recovered and he confess that these is the kind of power that The Secret Circle tries to keep for themselves (see entry).

The next day a military ship arrives to Tokraka, is The Old Lady of the Ierendi Royal Navy. They have come to take the Band of the Wolf as requested by King Fryeden and Queen Maeyi. They both are present on the ship. Also Admiral Julius Corcha and Burnscar.

The three nations are concerned that Ursula has been colecting items and spells of the long extinct evil race The Nagpas. They were known for their powers of greed and pestilence, and their hacking of the Magical Corridor created by the Elves.

There is an obelisc in the ship that the tritons recovered from one of Ursula’s hideouts. IT has many inscriptions in diferent languages and one was a riddle that read " The Grandmother pinched her finger with a needle, in her rage she swallows the needle whole, and now she is gaging in her own warm blood. "

There is a very loud sound of thunder and the place is filled with hotter air and ash. “What has happened?”
