The PCs made their way from the treasure room on to the Great Temple. There, they discovered several temple guards, 3 Priests of Torog, and several slaves magically held to an enchanted stone that seemed to be drawing strength from the slaves. One slave stood out above the others; a massive, 20’ tall Fomorian named Vae’Don.
The PCs mounted a rescue mission, destroying the servants of Torog and rescuing the prisoners. In return for saving him, Vae’Don broke through one of the walls out into the courtyard of Glutton’s Teeth and helped the PCs escape with several rescued townsfolk.
The fate of the other townsfolk is unknown, though it is likely they are either dead or are being given to Inquisitor Kitharna.
As the PCs fled, they noticed that Inquisitor Kitharna, Indrani, Hierophant Zeramus and Inil-Ilivynda all watched them leave. Their combined forces would be no match for the PCs with Vae’Don’s help, so they could do nothing to stop the escape.
Vae’Don also gave the PCs directions on how to get out of the Howling Warrens. They must travel north, to the Endless Sea. Along its shores they’ll find a small military encampment belonging to the servants of Torog, and there they’ll find a few sailing ships. Steal one and the PCs can traverse the Endless Sea, across which they’ll find the Fungal Groves. Make it through the Fungal Groves and they will find the Crystal Caverns, which is home to the Drow city of Maelbrathyr. Across the Crystal Caverns the PCs will descend under the Dragon’s Teeth Mountains to the Molten Core. From there, they can make their way up beneath the Library of Tem; however, first they must brave the dangers of the Frozen City of Deepreach, a long-lost dwarven stronghold.
