I wonder why they call it that? I mean it has nothing to do with ground! Quite possibly “grounds” but…hey wait are you already dictating? scribbling indicating pen moved rapidly up and down
Sigh…FINE. Well It started with my old friend Odeman contacting me, you know, the dwarf archaeologist. Well It seems Hike had sold the rights to excavate the nearby ruins to the Royal archaeological society. Well they hit some sort of snag and hired us to supply some temple cleaning. Your standard A56-b. So I assembled a team, got that shadar-kai that was in the previous arawai temple clean-up, a bard that had a particular interest in Arawai, the bugman and a warforged, and sent them off. It should be ok. Now stop writi
Is this thing on now? ah god. Seems the temple was trapped to hell and back and filled with guardians. They all reported heavy injuries and the likes. It even seems Odeman died in the processes of clearing out a room, good thing we got paid in advance but I’ll still miss that old bugger. I might just have him resurrected. At-least its all cleared out now and they should be able to look at all the frescoes they want. Except for one room it seems…might need to send a specialist team to disable some active traps, wonder if I can send Veldriss? Well now should I add the Bards report as an addendum, but its soo long! and I’m fairly sure its mostly poppycock aswell. Since when where bards able to take on entire rooms by them selves? while carrying 3 people, and he hardly mentions the rest! He also seems to have some sort of imaginary shardmind friend. because he keeps referring to some sort of Gem, a walking talking Peridot. Might have taken a heavy hit to the head, need to send him to the priest for a check up. Oh yeah, they brought back some book from the temple. Seems to explain a bit about the the Arawai temples.
Had Odeman resurrected. He is still grumpy, and wanted a discount for our adventurers not saving him. Told him the Resurrection cost should be considered the discount and he got silent. Love teasing that bugger. Veldriss cleared the remaining traps out, and it seems some gold was misplaced aswell. For a more detailed report on what the temples was all about here is a attached version of the book. But short version is that they where guarding an artifact known as the Geck. I’ve started decoding the cypher in the back, but it will take me some time before I get some useful information.
