Finally, the treacherous sorcerer Ghaznavi was found standing on a small out-cropping of earth amidst an underground river. Though the scholar contemplated a nearby black urn, he had not yet attempted to disturb it until Cuana rushed into the water to slay him. But the Cimmerian only succeeded in springing the sorcerer’s trap as a horde of freshwater jellyfish surrounded the barbarian, nearly paralyzing him. Tullweim waded into the river to aid his ally as An-Xi and Xacksmith fired arrows at Ghaznavi.
The sorcerer did not find what he sought in the black urn and turned his attention to another stretch of land on the opposite shore of the river. Cuana noticed his gaze and returned to the water to see what the flickering torchlight could not illuminate. But before he could reach it, the sorcerer mystically pulled a blue urn from the earth through the air towards him. The Aesir and Cimmerian rushed onto the bank Ghaznavi stood upon and set off more traps which seared the barbarian’s flesh. The scholar opened the blue urn and seconds from his prize An-Xi let loose a flurry of bolts which caught the sorcerer in the neck, stealing his last breath.
The adventurers took both halves of the bracelet Ghaznavi sought and triumphantly rose from the underground river and Jehungir’s crypt. There they were hailed for their great victory as the withering yellow light faded from the land. Tullweim took both halves of the bracelet to a nearby forge the next day and burnt the darkened device to oblivion. The party then traveled to the city of Djemal to claim their well-won prizes of silver, drink and relaxation.
