We landed on the goblin controlled isle after sailing through thick mists. Erik Oaken Hull navigated us into a secret entrance to the tower that the goblins were supposedly unaware of. However, after Erik Oaken Hull sailed off, the walls slid down, revealing a battalion of goblins. Battle ensued, and thanks to the mighty magecraft of Quarion victory was achieved. Red Horn fashioned helms from the goblin skulls and one was mounted on Quarion ‘s staff.
The Eldritch Blades continued through the tower, slaying countless goblins. But they were tiring. Too many more battles and the stalwart team would be finished; skewered at the cruel tips of goblin spears. In a room that appeared to be only for storage, assassins and archers leaped from behind the crates. The Blades were cornered.
It was at this time that Red Horn ’s talent, speaking the goblin tongue, was useful. He convinced the goblins that the party had come to serve their leader and make an offering to The Shiny. The group’s belongings were taken away and Zaalgor was sent to hide in the cart to make sure nothing happened to them. It was later discovered that the cart was cast into the sea.
The Eldritch Blades were brought before the tower’s lord, a large goblin who called himself Noros Godslayer . He demanded that we complete several tasks: to recite the Prayer of The Shiny and to slay captured hobgoblin warriors. This was successfully done, and Noros led the team to the pearl.
Suddenly, the tower shook with the roar of a dragon, and a servant ran into the room to report that many goblins in the lower tower lay slain. A great crimson claw ripped off the roof of the tower, carrying off the shiny. Then came a blast of searing heat, and the tower was in flames! Noros, suspicion rising, drew his sword, which crackled with energy. Two hexers engaged Quarion in combat, Red Horn was swarmed by guards, and Medrash found himself in single combat with the mighty goblin lord and his enchanted cutlass.
Battle erupted, and foes were eventually dispatched and cast into the flames. Noros Godslayer was beheaded by Medrash and his sword was obtained. At that moment the floor collapsed beneath the victorious Eldritch blades. Just before they tumbled into the flames, they were snatched up by the mighty dragon, piloted by Herbert Trektopolicz which whisked both them and The Shiny off to Trektoplika, where at last answers could perhaps be found.
