Blazing Sands campaign diary #4 - black suns rising


We've reached the third act of the campaign - Ashana the Genie binder led the PCs on a five day desert hike to the Sakran mountains. On the way I obviously had to throw a Death Worm at them. They suffered a couple of acid hits, but they came out on top.

The mountain pass was treacherous - they found a group of serpentfolk undertaking some sort of rite and firebombed the shit out of them. One of the creatures kept mentioning the 'faceless ones'. After the fight they found a number of rock carvings depicting strange winged visitors, two black suns and a strange city.

Some of you will immediately know where this is heading.

There was also a carving of a door flanked by two balls of fire.

They ventured further up the mountain until they reached a cave, into which they delved. At the end was a big stone door flanked by two sconces. On the door was written the words: "Strange is the night where black stars rise, and strange moons circle through the skies".

They lit the sconces and the doors slowly grinded open.
