All Washed Up
The Crew continued their assault on the Academy of Arts at the heart of Celwynvian. The Drow stronghold was well defended and the attack hinged on a three prong approach, with the Crew attacking from the south.
The Drow outside the building were finally cleared on the southern approach and the group made their way inside to find a once ornate assembly area with a long pool of water and stacks of dead Elves piled in the rows of benches. The dead Elves look to have been battered by some tremendous force. Before any further examination can be made, the water in the long pool becomes disturbed and two areas rise up, swirling around and splashing all throughout the room. Water Elementals!
|The Water Elemental|
Deciding against a direct approach, the Crew remains up near the top of the chamber and pepper the elementals with ranged attacks while Bodi climbs down to go open the door on the far side of the room. Bodi is hit and knocked down as he dashes across the room and Aragon follows him to assist. The others continue to attack and eventually force the watery creatures to retreat.
At just this time, Bodi makes it across the room and opens the door. They brash swashbuckler calls out, "Come on!" followed quickly by "Holy Shit!"
|The next chamber was filled with Elf Zombies!|
The next chamber holds a horrifying sight. Several elven corpses are strung up along the walls of this chamber, pools of blood congealing beneath their feet. It appears that their throats have been cut. Along the north wall, an ancient elven statue stands, but its skin has been painted black and its face carved into a cruel scowl. As Bodi looks in, the corpses all start to move, unhooking themselves from the chains holding them to the wall...
