X. Planet Hell: 88 Autumn 2978, afternoon
The heroes came down the spiral staircase into the main worship hall of the Zaros Cathedral to find the door already open. The sounds of chanting, the buzz of electricity and the heat of fire were nearly overwhelming. Peaking inside, the group could spot a score of worshipers, five of which were winkar wardens who were encircling a fiery vortex containing the half formed body of a Balor. At the main alter to the Moon, in front of a large statue to Ilius stood Minister’s Valisk and Ovaris.
Making sure to be as prepared as possible, the group used magic to harden their skin with earth magic to reduce the impact of weapons thanks to Kyana and become invisible thanks to Janus. Ready as they were going to get, Garion moved into the room first and with his mighty sonic bastard sword, cleaved the nearest priest in two, his screams bringing the chanting to a complete halt as the none of the worshipers could see any attack. Valisk, with an annoyed look to his face glanced at Ovaris and growled, “There are rats in my church.”
