Session Eighty-Three Summary (Graveyard of Empires: After the Fall)
Session 83, February 23 2022
We continue at 1:20PM on the 4th of Denrilden (00.000.09.27 on the Apocalypse Clock) with Jardin having flown across Curmidden and reached the eastern coast in a deserted area. Having spotted some hill giants near a large automaton, Velkin leaves the sleeping black dragon to investigate. The remainder of the party still waits inside the web portal, having returned from their business in Malgrim ...
Velkin entered the automaton and it was empty. He then waited til nightfall to open the portal and get the book.
The giants processed to the automaton for a celebration, so Velkin went to their village and found a palisade and three buildings. The palisade curved in front of a hill. Velkin went around and over the hill and found that there was an entrance to an ancient dwarven ore processing facility.
We found most of a set of books and the index from the site Administrator, Dervus Karn, a mathematician who developed a way to bind DVLs without Xenotel. We found a key that we later learned opens the nanocarbon bound book.
Kauri could read the books, but the letters were used as symbols that didn't make sense.
Bortham said that the writing is similar to those used by his people to bind DVLs to items. His blade has such symbols all over it, but are too small to see. He can't read or understand it himself.
We also found come more platinum pieces and several nanocarbon tools and a cart we decided to use to hold all the books.
Velkin then created a distraction by setting the vat of the giant's alcohol in one of the storage huts on fire to draw away the giants.
He then went back to the automaton and let us out to move the machine to get at the book and found that the key fit it's lock. We then put two more large nanocarbon machines and 4 square batteries and 3 triangle batteries into the portal.
Kauri reviewed the book and those in the portal started lugging the books and the nanocarbon to the embassy in Malgrim.
Velkin returned to Jardin who wondered where Velkin was. Velkin tells him of our little adventure and Jardin keeps watch while Velkin sleeps.
