We arrive at Kellicks and are shown to a sitting room. Pike takes the head chair. After a couple of minutes, Kellick appears in full regalia. He asks what we need, aren’t we supposed to be helping Tiira? We let him know that we declined her job request. Pike asks if he can help locate someone, his boss with the thieves guild who has been missing. Kellick says that is generally unethical as people are entitled to their privacy. He does say it can be done, its not his specialty, but he knows people who could. He asks the rest of us what we think about it, but we were not really aware that he was worried. Kellick then wants to know why we came if not for that and we tell him about the hunt for the aurumvoraxes. He is irritated that Pike shared this with us as he was supposed to do it on his own as our group will attract attention. Sanna shares our tale to illustrate how we are always being watched anyway. He takes notes and will do some research on our behalf. He asks for us to locate Lawrus Racknian in return. We let him know that evidence suggests that he was the one who took the creatures. He reminds us that when he became a death knight he mentioned Caius which may be a good place to start. We split up to research Caius. Sanna heads to the Mage’s guild and meets with his contact. He lets him know about meeting with Kellick and what we were asked to do. He asks about Caius and learns that he is an elder god and predates most of the more modern gods. He was a human before attaining godhood. He was a priest of Nerul and sacrificed his followers to attain godhood. When he performed his ritual, something went wrong and he was trapped in the very obelisk that he used to channel his powers. Nerull did not want to be challenged and caused a flaw in the ceremony. Even trapped, he attracted some powerful followers including a red dragon turned dracolich named Dragotha. Dragotha is rumored to lair near white plume mountain. Caius is likely also responsible for the giant worm that erupted in to the arena. A map of the area around White Plume mountain would be helpful. Gonoan heads to the Green Dragon to drink. He keeps his ears open and hears about an attack against Rigby’s body. Also, that some of the St Cuthbertians left Greyhawk and were followed by some Boccobians who wanted to make sure they didn’t do anything precipitous. Beltin, Obregon, and Pike head to the church of St Cuthbert and ask for Eritae. We are told she is indisposed and unavailable today. We ask about Caius anyway and are told that they haven’t seen the worms or spawn of Caius in probably 10 years. We mention that Lawrus had exhorted about him when he became the death knight. “lo, the apostle of Caius is amongst us” Was he speaking of himself or the worm? There was a chamber under the arena that the worm was gestating in until big enough to come forth. Obregon asks about what happened to Rigby and we learn that someone threw acid at his body. After we regroup and compare notes, we decide that White Plume mountain is probably a good next step but in the meantime we follow the St Cuthbertians. They appear to be headed to the Grehawk ruins. There are some fresh graves on the way marked bandits stopped and one named burial marker. There are more bodies along the way of bandits and further on some howling orcs. Almost to the ruins, there is an encampment out of sight of the ruins themselves. There are a couple of guarded tents but the rest of the folk are out in the open. As we approach, someone alerts them and Eritae comes stomping up to us and asks why we are there. We tell her we wanted to see if we can help. She says they have encountered an issue, a curse on the pathway to the ruins. Crossing the bridge has proved difficult. She asks if we could lead some of the evil forces out for them to deal with. We discuss what to do next and Nat offers to speak with the kobolds and pretend to be the party leader. Pike ROFLs and Nat then suggests that Pike try to cross the bridge since he had done it alone previously to which Pike retorts that Nat should go. So Nat turns himself invisible and heads off. He comes back and says that he is ok. It may be difficult but we should be able to cross. It takes some time but we manage to make the crossing. We notice something moving around beyond the wall and Obregon determines it is something heavy. Pike and Obregon attempt to move up to the crumbling outer wall silently but don’t see anything right away. There does seem to be a shadow moving around and finally we spot it, the iron golem. Beltin moves back a little to lead it across the bridge, Pike moves up a little and hits it with a crossbow bolt which just bounces off. Sanna steps in front of Gonoan and hits it with a lightning ball which doesn’t appear to have any effect. Gonoan moves back and Obregon shoots 2 arrows at it but misses. The golem moves forward but seems to be sluggish. Beltin moves back again as does Pike. Sanna backs up on to the bridge while Gonoan stays at the end of the bridge to cover the others escape. Obregon hits it with an arrow and causes a little damage. The golem moves forward a little more. Beltin and Sanna keep moving away as does Pike. Gonoan is unable to move on to the bridge, as he succumbs to the curse which also happens to Obregon after he hits it with another arrow. The golem moves forward again and now seems to be faster. Beltin holds his ground to keep watch on the ones on the ground and Sanna moves back up in case she is needed. Gonoan and Obregon get up and move back. The golem moves to the edge of the wall but then stops. It appears it will not move beyond the wall. Beltin moves up and hits it with acid. Pike gets up and moves back. Sanna casts black tentacles around the golem but it fails to grab hold. Gonoan moves up behind Beltin while Obregon misses it with 2 arrows. The golem moves back to try and get out of the tentacles. Now what?
