Session 50 – Through the Dead City

The party arrives at a rune-covered pool before a locked door. Within the pool a serpent made of water guarded the key. After several near-drownings, the group defeated the magical beast and traveled past the door.

They exited into the crumbling remains of a dead city; in the distance a decrepit tower rose from a skull-shaped hill. On the first floor of the tower, the adventurers defeated a mob of zombies and wights.

Climbing higher, they then encountered an undead mass of bones and body parts, a moving barrow that tried to consume the party. Phaean found himself near death, impaled on sharp bones jutting from the barrow, but his fellow heroes managed to save him and defeat the creature.
