The group cautiously walk towards the village. Two men with axes guard the village entrance.
They are greeted by the village elder named Uxxik (ook-sick). They allowed us to skirt their village and made our way to the ruins. Ykks informed us that some of the cannibals detach their heads, possibly a telltale sign is a thin tattoo encircling their necks.
Federico at night sees fire and hears bestial chittering and rolling boulders near the ruins. It dies before the dawn. The ruins had phosphorescent graffiti and signs of living things that were about in the courtyard. The boyos entered a stairwell that went down into the earth.
Knowing that once they enter the stairwell something nearby would sense them. They hit a dead end but found a hole that was made specially for the artifact Ykks gave them. Sticking it in the hole a passage way opened up that leads further into the earth!
Melting corpses were waiting at the bottleneck! 'Rico leapt over Silt while Decius blew a hole in the face of the lead corpse! 'Rico dashed forward and slashed the still standing corpse to ribbons and it falls. As does the next in line. More rise to takes its place. The greedy dead took their friends back down the hallway to consume them.
Distracted by their gluttony the group dispatched the rest of the ghouls. Hearing 3 booted sets of footfalls the groups see a magical barrier. Decius sees this and knows it will last 10minutes. Silt sneaks forward once the spell ends and scouts a shaman and 2 imperitus guards. He reports back and finds 'Rico in a power nap. After relaying the scouted info Silt went back to gain a helpful position.
Hiding near the shaman Silt waited. The shaman spoke with a portal and came to some agreement. The 2 guards flesh melted and walked into the void. The shaman started to glow and chanted some sort of spell. Silt waited patiently for the cavalry to arrive.
When 'Rico popped his head around the corner Silt took position behind the shaman and stabbed him in the back. The shaman dropped the spell. Decius fired a bullet and struck true while 'Rico strode forward and slashed brutally at him. As the shaman readied a spell he was struck down by a spell cast by Decius.
The room was searched and various magical items were found.
