Uktar 8, 1372 DR (4:00 PM) Deep Wastes: Glouroth's Chasm
The tunnel opens into the floor of a chasm with no visible ceiling. The floor is covered with huge boulders and broken rubble. A path has been cleared through the rubble to a huge cliff with sheer walls on the opposite wall. A great chime with a heavy iron mallet hangs at the mouth of the tunnel.
"That summons our ride," suggests Igor. "Let's take that and use it as a dinner bell back in Sigil," suggests Hazen. "It may function that way here."
We retreat down the tunnel to discuss the situation.
Yol offers to cast an Augury. Tebryn scowls. "If there is any risk at all, it'll tell YOU 'woe', right?"
"No other way to proceed?" says Igor.
"We could fly," suggests Hazen. "The ceiling might be painted with Frescos. Or the stalactites could be carved."
"I'm willing to fly up and scout," says Igor.
"So, you and Hazen will fly up invisibly?" says Veracity. "Good idea."
"I feel sorry for piercers," babbles Hazen. "They get one shot and then spend a whole day climbing up again."
"What the hell does that have to do with our current situation?" says Kress irritably.
"Let's scout," says Igor.
"Wait," says Veracity. "I have something for Hazen, first." She pulls a strip of cloth out her pocket and moves up to Hazen.
"No, no!" says Hazen. "As soon as I go invisible, I'll be silent."
Igor drinks a potion of Darkvision. Igor and Hazen turn invisible and take off. They fly invisibly out of the tunnel mouth.
As they fly up the cliff, about 60 feet up, 20 feet to the right is a cave opening. Very dark.
70 feet more, 30 feet to the left is another cave opening. 20 foot tunnel turns down.
110 feet more is a very large cave opening right in front of them. As they fly by, Glouroth breathes. A cone of billowing, smoky shadow comes out of the cave mouth.
Both rogues successfully evade the breath weapon. The dragon flies out. A seething mass of hatred and fury: a shadow dragon, with 5 mirror images up.
