Mazzahs the magnificent told us that now the whole town is mad at us as they give us the fault of what has happened. He also revealed that he is no outcast but one of the most powerful archmage of the realm, sent here to guard the only entrance of the maze which is untainted by the dark powers of the tablet of chaos.
He shields his tower with magical defenses and let us catch some sleep. He also give us a few healing potions. The following day, we leave early in the morning. We descend in the basement of the tower and we are lead to a dark corridor. Then we are left alone.
After one hour of travel we reach the bronze door that leads to the inner part of the maze. Dhekeon reminds himself of this passage as he went through there many years ago. He however has no accurate knowledge of the labyrinth itself. After having solved the riddle at the entrance we were able to open the door.
In the darkness our torch seemed to be the only shelter. We ignored the first two crypts and entered a wide circular room. This was a mistake as from the crypts three wights came out from behind us. I haven’t been able to turn them with the mighty power of St. Ygg but the spells of our wizard Zeddicus granted us some time. As the monsters were fighting the orcs he had summoned we were able to focus on each of them individually and crush their dark soul. The protection of evil I’ve cast on myself boosted my defenses against them and I have been lucky enough not to get hit a single time.
Whilst the combat was still going on, from the four passages in the circular room, several mummies came out. Even there Zeddicus’ help has proved invaluable. His magic fire burned them.
While we went back searching the crypts for something useful, we heard a roaring sound. Our assumption is that the tunnel has collapsed behind us. We are now locked inside this maze.
Despite all that has happened, I could find a shield that has been blessed by St. Ygg. It just come handy to me as I had to let my old one be destroyed by the mighty blow of one of the undead that would have caused me serious hard.
We had no choice than to sleep in the crypt, hoping not to be awaken by any restless undead. We soon discovered how our hope was foolish when the sons of Gaxx woke us up. We need to fight for our lives again.
