Into the Earth

  • After they reach a mountainous cliffside, Shayliss stops the group to lecture them about the danger they’re about to be in.
  • She explains that the Shadow Lord isn’t like any monster they’ve fought before. It’s a God of death, literally immortal. It can harvest the souls of the ones that die in its domain.
  • The group is unwilling to turn around. They must save Justice.
  • Eventually they reach a massive opening in the earth, with a glowing stone floating above it. A powerful magic emanates from the stone, creating a barrier down into the ground that they cannot cross. Physical and magical attacks are both deflected without apparent effect.
