The party decided to use every avenue available to them with which they could relay the information to the agents of the Consortium roaming the continent. Leogold used his Viceroy powers once again and uncovered information regarding an old magic school which has been abandoned for decades and now hosts vagrants and thieves. Deathsap used his ability to sneak and investigated a room on the second floor of the entrance chamber; Spiders were spotted and ran into a hole in the room wall which allowed them access to the main entrance chamber. The party began to engage the spiders as well as two Dwarven thieves who emerged from a different room on the second floor. The battle raged on and Foopooz burned one of the two Dwarf thieves alive in his armor, while Dara took aim at the second thief’s calf muscle with her great-bow and disabled him. The spiders were dealt with and expertly dispatched by the remainder of the team.
With one thief alive, the party was able to get information on where the library which held the spell book might be. They moved further into the abandoned magic school and discovered something had happened to the students here which might have caused the school to close. Dara attempted to consult her tome (Verya’s book) but was knocked unconscious and out of her body. While having an out-of-body experience, Dara discovered a large lecture hall with drawings of a large portal and very complicated equations on a chalkboard. Dara found a large pit with a ladder which she presumed would lead the party into the basement where the library is said to be located.Dara suddenly snapped back to her body and informed the party of what she saw; they moved onwards down the large pit and all eventually found themselves in the large, dark, empty library.
Deathsap flew ahead and above of the group with Foopooz taking care of some scouting on the ground. Deathsap reached the top of a bookshelf and took a quick look around the surrounding area, and once he completed his look around he came face to face with an old pale woman with scraggly white hair.
