The heroes tied up the kitchen fanatics deciding not to harm them. Hearing no noise from the aftermath of the combat the heroes headed towards the middle of the temple complex. There they found an empty mess chamber with a trapdoor in the floor. The lock was surprisingly picked by Sven after he claimed that it was unpickable. Azimi just smiled and hid her wiggling fingers behind her back.
Down the trap door they came across two minotaur statues that were just destined to come alive. As Skrogg and Ragnar proceeded down the stairs, the statues did indeed animate and were hit into piles of rubble with great ease by Skrogg and Ragnar. The others stepped over the piles of rubble as they proceeded to a door that had a warning about bad things happening to those who entered written in runes above the door arch. Thorsgrim blessed everyone, as Azimi prepared another spell. The doors were opened. and a chamber of burial coffins were found and at the end of the corridor a figure could be seen sitting on a throne. The continual light spells began to flicker ominously as Skrogg and Ragnar approached carefully, only to see the figure move unbelievably fast towards them. Magical Missiles from Azimi, and a magical crossbow bolt from Sven flew out hitting the creature squarely, but not stopping it. Skrogg was force to deflect two attacks from the undead king, and his sword was deflected in return. Ragnar’s mighty Axe was also deflected, but the King could not defend the spiked shield of Skrogg. Figures from the side wafted up through the stone lids, causing more fear than any creature in the game, Spectres! Thorsgrim the true caused two to flee from the power of Odin, but one reached out it’s undead hand causing a white burning scar on Sven who screamed and began to pout. Kurin drew forth the mighty hammer and struck the creature several mighty blows. More undead Wraith’s were summoned out of their tomb’s only to be turned to dust under the power of Thorsgrim. Azimi continued to magically missile and cast her unique fire fingers spell weakening the undead king, as he clutched his chest Skrogg was able to reach up and shove the spike from his shield through the head of the king, slaying him permanently. All Ragnar’s attacks had been deflected. Ragnar in frustration slew the remaining Wraith with one single mighty chop.
A search of the coffins revealed the bodies of five of the kings servants, but one had a very fresh looking corpse with a shiny ring. Just to be on the safe side Ragnar chopped it before it rose. The ring was taken off by Sven only to have another Wraith rise reaching out with its cold dead hand. Kurin expecting this splatted in very quickly. During this time Azimi had prepared a lightning bolt and had stationed herself along a wall. The two spectres who had fled the power of odin returned only to be blasted by a returning lightning bolt, and then slain by the quick thinking halfling Skrogg. All was now quiet. All that was left to do was to claim the object of the quest from the head of the undead king. The heroes had found the Sorona! Debate then raged about returning the King to Vestland. But why???
The heroes left the crypt and decided a policy of “exterminatus” on evil clerics was not only lawful justice, but expedient so left to find some clerics to splat. Openning the first door they found the head cleric’s quarters as he was engaged in conversation with his two lieutenants. Immediately, Skrogg and Ragnar burst in only to have hold spells cast at them. Thorsgrim cast hold person in reply but to no avail. The one who attempted to hold Ragnar had his spell rebound and froze him in return. Azimi turned one into a goldfish. The final cleric eventually froze in return. Summary executions were committed. Day ends with a +1 mace being found.
