AG was awakened at thier camp in the lower reaches of the Banewarrens by “Gary”, the mechanical man, who had been acting as a kind of “caretaker” for the first level of the Banewarrens vaults. Gary informed you that “Sagyryntis”, the silver dragon had come and found him. The dragon said there was no reason for him to keep resetting the traps and cleaning up the bodies and that Gary should help AG 18 seal the Banewarrens. The dragon also released Gary from his need to “fix” the Banewarrens.
Up entering the Baneheart, AG 18 discovered they were actually inside the spire that towers over Ptolus. The entire interior of the spire was lined with hundreds if not thousands of vault doors. These vaults were different than the ones in the outer vaults, the banewarrens key would not open them. Each door appears to require a specific key. Gary informed you that the keys were intially stored in the inner vaults but that at some point Malkith had taken them into Jabel Shammar at the top of the spire.
A long winding spiral staircase climbed the interior of the spire with landings interspersed along the way.
AG 18 was set upon by a group of vrock while exploring the base of the spire. After he creatures were dispatched, they discovered the vrock’s lair, and some vaults that had already been opened, one of which had a secret passage leading to an unopened vault.
You gained the following items.
An ebony skull that seems to need some kind of ritual to activate.
A box, when opened, summons a specter.
Gloves of the Battlemaster +3 (Went to Yarkblar)
