The PCs tracked back the bishop Gabriel in Thurmaster, down into the ruins of the cathedral. It appears that the sacred building had been constructed in that particular site not out of reverence for something but out of keeping down something nasty.
Down in the dungeon they discovered a whole new section of tunnels that the servants of the bishop excavated during numerous years. The tunnels connected to an old temple of some long-forgotten deity. There they heard the sound of drums and a chanting invocation of the black king, also known as Impurax, the dark god of pestilence.
They managed to overcome the 5 sigils that protected the place and finally confronted with the bishop. Gabriel was about to sacrifice sir William Parlfrey to the malevolent god. Gorm the dwarf fighter and Radamel the ranger rushed in but were ambushed by two frog-like demons summoned from the bishop. They discovered with horror that their swords couldn’t do anything against them and both the warriors died because of the poison of the demons. Their heroic death however give the other members of the party, namely Sigeric the satyr warrior/thief, Logor the cleric and Alfio the halfling thief, time to advance and confront with Gabriel himself.
They managed to free sir William and even throw the evil bishop into the portal from where the evil god was about to enter the world.
When all seemed fine, the horrendous avatar began to materialize. Even with the portal closed, the cursed amulet Logor was wearing was enough to channel the deity’s power between the two dimensions.
It was just in that moment that Dargath, the entity that had taken the body of the satyr, revealed himself. He had prepared himself for ages for this very moment and, through the portal, also a part of his essence had come, filling him with magical power once again. He expressed the with to cleanse the amulet from the evil and then…all went bright.
If you happen to pass from Thurmaster you can see the statue of the companions even today: a huge satyr carring an halfling on his shoulders and the rest of the party beside him. King William Parlfrey commissioned it so that everybody could remember the dangers in which the country of Sylmora once was.
Now the war with Vladimir seems just as far as that with the evil cult that prospered in those lands. King William Parlfray is ruling with wisdom and care for all his people.
