Set out on 4th of Empyrion, party of Bubble, Aeren, Hefen, Von Connery and Bjorn
Headed east from town to split tree, then north to the temple (3 hours travel)
Outside of ruined temple, looks like scouts might be using it occasionally
Saw a swirling mosaic where the center of ceremonies would be
Went down into crypt, got the drop on the Water Elemental
Rushed in, fought and killed Water Elemental, everyone made it out ok
Found treasure room behind: 700cp, 7000sp, 1700gp, 100pp
Also found gemstones: 2 jade, 2 tourmaline, 1 pearl, 2 amethyst, 2 garnet. Later sold for 864gp.
Found fancy mace – Dawnbringer. Does extra radiant damage.
Found 1x Potion of Speed
Elemental fight didn't take long, so we went on a scouting expedition to the north
Headed north for 3 1/2 hours, made it to Nesadesh and saw a fort close by – end of the day. Took a long rest.
Got attacked by lions – killed lions
Stealthily approached fort, saw Orcs guarding it – roughly same size as the first Orc Fort, but with a smaller number or Orcs, no more than 12-15
Speculated that Orcs may have been sent to Orc Fort 1 – thinning forces
Scouting completed, headed back home, arrived back on 5th Empyrion.
