Session Two: Into Darkness

Having arrived at the impact site, the party did not find what they expected. Pascal deduced that the meteorite had somehow buried itself deep below the earth upon impact. As the workers set about making camp just outside the perimeter, Pascal set about planning a new extraction course for the following morning. The party also set about putting up defenses and helping make camp for the night. Upon daybreak, Pascal was found observing the crater and it was discovered that a few of the men as well as Marl were missing. As the workers set about eating and discussing things, Pascal pulled the party aside. He informed the party that he had sent Marl and a few members of the crew ahead to scout out the hole during the night, a mission they did not return from. The party was then tasked with investigating the disappearance and bring the men back, for which they would be rewarded.
 
The party reluctantly agreed and set about exploring the cavernous space below the impact site. Upon entering the deep below, the party found more than they expected. Instead of a meteorite, they discovered a large hidden edifice secreted away in the rocky underground. As Irka scouted ahead, it became apparent that something or someone had been dragged through the subterranean vault. As the party continued to explore deeper they soon discovered that this place was an ancient crypt. Through determination and clever deduction, not only were the party able to solve the locking mechanism behind the central chamber, but in doing so discovered the fate of the missing exploration team.
 
Upon entering the central chamber they discovered a couple dark masked figures with a captive celestial as well as a horde of monstrous abominations. As they cut down the ranks of monstrosities in their path, they also dealt handily with the mysterious captors attempting to keep them at bay. Although the figures did manage to escape in lieu of fatal blows, the party managed to capture a vampiric servant by the name of ‘Seventeen’. Further interrogation revealed little other than the fractured mental and physical state of the vampire. The party decided to bind him for the time being as they might have further use for him later.
 
They released the celestial from her prison only to discover that the damage she had suffered from the torment of her captors was too great. With her dying breath she imparted a message to Beryl and entreated the party to deliver her warning to Whitehaven. When she had delivered her final words, she disappeared into light and was gone. Before the party had any time to consider all they had witnessed, they heard a massive rumbling echoing from back down the corridors to the entrance. Once the noise had finished, they realized that they were now sealed inside the crypt.
