28th day of Olidammara, 816
On the way to Kanatir, the group was accosted by a pair of Ogre bandits. Krolok leaped forward and dealt one of them a serious blow to start the fight, and they put up surprisingly little resistance after that. The Ogres had apparently had a decent career prior to this however, as the party liberated quite a bit of treasure from them, including a pair of Gloves of Lightning.
The heroes figured they had found the entrance to the ruins when they found a cave guarded by Lemure Devils. These were also dispatched and the group descended into the ruins. They soon came across a secret door and after a bit of puzzling, figured out that they had to open it by pouring a liquid into the center of the room. This was not figured out until after Monitus had suggested that Krolok lick the floor, which he then ridiculed him for going through with.
The main section of Kanatir was found to be quite abandoned and decrepit. There were many mindless gray-skinned Dwarves milling about, but they provided no clues or assistance. The only living thing they encountered was a room full of Brown Mold which knocked Monitus—out.
Finally, they found some excitement in the form of a Bearded Devil guarding a double doorway. He was defeated and the doors opened to reveal a library. There was a robed Dwarf whom Ampersand identified as Koldun, a nobleman from Greystone, but more importantly, his bodyguard was the ghost of Brolok, whose killer Drolok and Krolok had been searching for all this time. Koldun ordered Brolok to attack and then teleported off and the group’s attacks seem to mostly just pass right through Brolok…
