Session 38-1

Into the Ice

Entering into the Ice the daylight outside started to fade away. The last rays of light made the Ice sparkle as you followed the small stream. At a small pond, or lake, you were faced with choices on what path to go. Deciding to follow the stream up into the ice you were forced to leave your mounts at the pond. Even the gently incline made the going difficult and slippery. Several hours later, and by now miles into the ice, you came across small zurkwood shafts and crystals of ice much colder than regular ice. Both the shaft and the crystals showed signs of being worked. Later you came upon what appeared to be a settlement. More of the zurkwood, more crystals and in the ice wall small hollows. As your legs had started to grow tired you found it as good a place as any to rest your weary legs.

Session 38-2

Pygmy

As you were resting a small creature came walking towards you. A bit curious but mostly annoyed that you were brining heat into this most holy Ice. Upon inspection you noticed the small creature's breath did not form any mist. After making introductions you learned that the Ice dragons were considered holy, Ice's favoured. And that the mystics you were seeking you could find high on top a mountain. The description of the mystics made Zarrah shiver, Gith mystics by the sound of it. Unlike the dragons Ice didn't like them and with Zarrah sharing the disgust the pygmy agreed to take you to the mountain's foot. Without saying anything directly you had made the pygmy assume you were going to drive them off.

Session 38-3

The lone mountain

After taking you on top the ice at the base of the mountain the pygmy bid you farewell. Looking out over the glacier a lone mountain dominated the landscape. Going towards it, two rows of uneven pillars formed a several hundred feet wide corridor. As you climbed higher and circled the mountain you noticed these pillar continuing on the other side of the mountain as well. With the wind howling around you you came upon a curious piece of ice wall with a chamber of the other side. Sensing your goal on the other side you shattered the wall with pitons and hammer.

Session 38-4

The mystics

After breaking into the chamber you were welcomed by three figures in long hooded robes. As they revealed themselves and welcomed you Zarrah's worst fear became realized. They were Gith, or rather Githzerai. Acknowledging that you might me hungry after your long clib they offered you a warming and filling stew. Telling them the details of your mission they reluctantly agreed that the course of action would be necessary. To their knowledge your best bet at acquiring silver cords would be to infiltrate a base of their marauding kin, the Githyanki, and steal from them. But to do that you would have to travel to Astral plane, the realm of the gods, through the Dreamlands. And they would help you to do so.
