Time Check: 8.5 of 12 hours have passed – one more jar to go.
The Canopic Jar prepped by the Church of Osiris
Location: Appears to be the temple area – we are outside a temple of Osiris…
The team find the entrance that leads to an untouched underground section where ruined Temple of Osiris once proudly stood.
Its dark here Memphis places a mote of light on Sub-par’s staff so the team can see. Again we see bones and partial skeletons strewn about the place. Sub-par sees the shedded skin of a snake – its huge!
The team hears a voice say something but cannot comprehend the words. The voice in the darkness speaks again. None of us know what language is being spoken.
The team advances as the darkness is slowly repelled by the light mote. A Son of Kyuss steps out of the darkness and attacks Sub-par from the left flank. A huge infected Naga appears on the right in front of Tomok attacking him. Tomok is thrown back about 10ft as the kyuss-infected guardian naga tailslaps him, but he manages to advance on the Son of Kyuss to attack it. This Son… he looks “fresh”. So does the naga.
The battle is tough as Tomok and Sub-par are very low on heath. Memphis suddenly notice that the naga has a symbol of Osiris hanging from around its neck!? As the combat, Memphis can see the naga further in combat, it looks persecuted – not like any of the other undead we’ve fought since coming to the city. Its ’begging for something… ’
Glancing about the room, the team notices that all the sheddings of the naga’s skin are collected next to a shrine of Osiris in the eastern corner of the room. Memphis suspects that we may be able to “save” this Naga. But at this point of the combat, the naga critically low on health. Memphis commands the team to go defensive – he needs another round or two, and would rather not kill this immortal creature.
The shrine has many small statues of Egyptian deities here. Memphis sees nothing that would help the naga.
Meanwhile Tomok and Sub-par still continue to attack the Naga. Memphis prays to Ra for inspiration, salvation for the naga – he thinks there is nothing else to do.
The room suddenly becomes entirely lit by the statue of Ra and no one can even see the statue of Ra it is so bright! The naga collapses, the worms try to escape and are turned to ash as they leave its body, but the naga is still critically wounded.
The team are very close to death after the battle. Tomok at one point in battle had almost died but then he got right back up! They do what we can to heal the Naga as well as ourselves. Eventually the naga awakes – its speaks to us but they stil don’t understand.
It approaches the shrine and reflects. It then shows us around the room and the treasures laying about.
