Kroaxis

Sheppard’s faculty meeting

Kroaxiss has decided-ah to open an arena for… enntertainnnment. Contenders? Likely anything – but for now-ah we have secured safe passage & trade for rare and exotic creaturesss-ah. (imagine the rest in that voice)

As usual, surrounding towns sent capable warriors and diplomats to solidify the trade route and escort path of such dangerous creatures. During the meeting with Breward Fessek I was able to lock in a 1/3 share of the exotic materials & components from said monstrosities when they perish in the arena.

I expected the faculty to cheer at the mention of the rare components deal that was struck, but I guess I’ll settle for an enthusiastic shuffle of seating.

I knew most of you would be happy about that…. …you’re welcome. {{The truth is most everyone in the room is unsure of how to act around Sheppard – his commanding presence and icy stair is more than a little off-putting}}.

A fighting schedule will be provided early so professors can request specific parts in advance. Tenure of course, gets priority except when overruled by the Dean.

Those of you with other meetings or classes starting are excused, otherwise stay & hear the summary of the challenges we endured… you never know when you will be called to serve in the name of Dexnia and further it’s standing in Kroaxis.
Lubrabrassk, “the council”, spoke with us. Yes, I met it face to face. Quite dangerous what those council members are doing I foresee dangers ahead keeping that Illithid or Alhoon or whatever it is imprisoned in his own mind.

It set us on a task of riddles, puzzles, combat challenges, and battle of wits. Acompanying me was ________ from the prison city _________. _________ our monstrous neighbor from the city _________. And an odd fellow from _________ my home town. He never spoke & if I didn’t know better I’d say he was a flesh golem.

Yes, Yengeon, the very same __________ who used to teach here. Seems he has taken his methods to the riots in ___________.

Our first challenge was a riddle I solved that granted us passage to the next challenge. A pair of great minotaurs. Another challenge I spotted right away & successfully got us to the next challenge. From here on out, the others were instrumental in our success.

In fact, the next room I didn’t help at all as I was immediately incapacitated the others fought hard & overcame an Aboleth.

Another room nearly sent us packing until that crazed _____________ figured it out. He nearly killed himself in the process.

We encountered a gynosphinx & yet again ____________ overcame the riddles.

[[Internal monologue: as crazy as ____________ appears it might not have been the right decision to dishonorably ban him. Out students need to be taught the twisted horrors of our world and shown the effects of fear. They need to overcome & rise above or rightfully be forgotten to the annuals of history]].

The Gynosphinx, unimpressed with out correct answers ambushed us in a later room yet we were victorious.

Breward Fesik supplied 1000 gold for our city coffers and I will be casting my stone to upgrade the magic shop.
Intentionally did not mention the Metacrawlers
