Eventually, after another encounter with the Androsphinx, some avoidance of traps and cursed items, a chinwag with some lost dervishes and a fight with some minotaurs, the group get out of Kordan’s Master Maze.
Up above it, they discover a paladin fighting ghouls, which they help her to best. They join forces with her and move to a room where a 30 foot tall statue houses a huge gem. Is this the one they search for? No, as it happens, as an alarm sounds when it is taken. Wraiths attack on this sound, but are driven off by the combined forces of Sveyn and a fireball from Tialys Nylar.
The paladin tells of a dark priest who is now a spirit and resides next to a waterfall…the very thing they have seen now to the north. Must they go through the waterfall to progress?
