To the east of the Castle of Vallaes, on the shores of the sea the party found the entrance-way to an underground dunjon. According to local rumors, a vile and destructive beast was summoned to this place by the use of arcane magic, either by a clone of the evil wizard Nikaedor or by the real Nikaedor himself, in an effort to aid the resistance.
A short ways into the dunjon, Wyvam spotted some colorful writing scrawled onto the walls which read “Join the Resistance!” and “Nikaedor Lives!” The markings on the wall cleverly hid a secret door from which the party used to traverse further into the dunjon in search of this arcane beast and any pieces of the tablet that we could find.
A teleporter brought the group to and from an area which was otherwise inaccessible. A lady paladin greeted the party and offered a magical book of beasts. “Are there any wizards among you? Use this book to summon your own beasts to fight against the dreaded annihilator beast. You must be careful as there are deadly magical wards that surround the beast. One wrong step and you may be done for! But first you must seek out a box in a room surrounded by darkness. Inside the box you will find an ancient elven runestone which will grant you access to the annihilator beasts lair. Good luck to you all.”
The adventurers continued onwards and soon located the zone of darkness and the box containing the elven runestone within, and further still a door with elven runes. The stone began to glow an azure blue aura as Wyvam placed the runestone onto its mantle and the gate onwards opened up revealing a large room with ladder leading up to the surface in front of rows of deadly magical wards.
Klobber stepped forward. “It is here that we should use the book of beasts, as the way forward is trapped.” The goblin wizard began to read the magical spells contained within the book to summon allies to get the adventurers past the deadly wards. Three times Klobber summoned the evil cat. “Chungaaa wuuungaaa, where are you?” And three times the Chungawunga was disintegrated by the deadly magical wards.
Upon breaching the magical wards, an ancient dinosaur gave a ferocious ROAR and the party was immediately assaulted by the dreaded arcane annihilator beast.
The annihilator beast was not alone, as a group of berzerkers and fire giants had attempted to herd the beast into the direction of the party using the beast as their sinister and destructive weapon.
The monk Greyrobe had attempted to condemn the annihilator beast but was unsuccessful. The hungry dino then bit into a clone of Woodsy making a meal out of the ally.
Raax and Klobber stepped forth laying down an onslaught of meteor swarms which fell upon the unsuspecting enemies decimating their groups numbers.
Ingrid took initiative slicing and stabbing with her lawful avenger in an all out frontal assault, while the kobold Wyvam prefered to catch his enemies by surprise by stabbing them in the back cutting into a berzerker’s vital organs.
Jadehat let her summoned demon (Baalzebul) tear into the giants of fire, leaving a lot of scorched remains and piles of burning flesh and bones across the wasteland where the annihilator beast has made into its home.
The arcane annihilator beast is strong. Many rounds later and with quite a few allies short, the great T-Rex was finally defeated.
