The party encountered a very nervous elf cleric inside of the time-locked temple. He mentioned to the party that he was afraid that his goddess Melora would be overthrown soon, although he was unaware that over 2000 years had passed since his temple was frozen. As he ran down deeper into the temple, three armoured figures riding on the backs of golden feathered Wyverns landed on the outside concourse. The lead figure, wearing a spaulder emblazoned with the symbol of Etten, slammed a baton into the ground in the doorway, releasing a torrent of radiant liquid, which began to fill the temple. Through the quick ingenuity of the party, including the strength of Gore’n & Azhi, as well as a quickly erected portal by Minerva, the party was able to flee to the bottom of the temple along with the cleric and his ritual book.
Once Morghan sealed the doors behind them with a Nail of Sealing, Xerros began the ritual to create a doorway to Sigil with his portkey. However, the runes it created were not the ones it usually creates, so the party trepidaciously stepped through the portal, only find themselves atop a floating platform high in the sky, confronted by the armoured templars and their beasts.
After a harrowing battle, which saw many party members nearly fall (including Meg the Griffon), the party was victorious. They chose to risk the safety of the floating platform and began to set up camp for the night.
