After dispatching the hobgoblin mercenaries the party worked their way ever deeper into the keep. Kalarel had obviously prepared his final defenses such that only the undead could pass without trouble. The party disarmed traps, both magical and mundane and put undead by the score to a final rest.
Along the way the group found Gurhana’s Arm, and enchanted battleaxe and a bag of holding. Finally the group arrived at what looked at where the Cult of Orcist were planning their dread ritual. A magical fountain had been perverted so that it ran with blood instead of water, and it dripped into the darkness of a pit in the floor. The floor had the image of Orcist on the floor, placed there by some magical means. The underpriest and his minions defended this last point to the last but in the end, those that weren’t killed were tossed into the pit. Rozca gave chase to the few that remained, sliding down the blood-slicked chains and ended the last cultist, only to find herself face-to-face with Kalarel who welcomed her to the ritual.
