Revenge for Terios
Ascending the planetary stairway of Vvaraak’s astrolabe, the heroes soon came upon one of the minotaur staging rooms. Here some low level grunt minotaurs mingled with a brutal and hungry ogre cook. The battle was furious as the cook proved himself to be adept thug with a magic cleaver, but the heroes eventually overcame him.
Sneaking further into the complex, the heroes spotted Rhesh with two of his minion bodyguards, one a palefiend lifedrinker (who nearly drained James dry before James light him on fire), the other a cinderhoof charger. The heroes had to expend their last reserves to overcome these foes. After a long fight, only Rhesh remained, bleeding and beaten. Teranu raised his hammer for the killing blow, and in that instant, the spirit form of Terios appeared and imbued the hammer with added primal energy. Teranu struck the fatal blow then watched, stunned, as Rhesh’s body was dragged into the depths of Khyber by Terios’ ghostly form.
