Akra's Vision, Riddled with Vermin, Spiders in the Dark, Tomb Raiders & Great Escapes
Interlude/Next Session Intro:
Cyradyn Pyramid collapses behind you in a massive, choking sand and dust storm.
"Anyone looking for a guide?"
Your guide brings you several hundred paces away from where the pyramid use to stand, where another group of folks dressed and geared similarly to you are mending their wounds and cooking up some rather unsavory desert delights over a fire.
"If you're headed back to Stormreach, clean up and eat up. We leave in one hour. Tlincalli scouts, sandworm trains and a sand giant wanderer's out there." The blonde-haired woman looks out past the sand dunes to the horizon as she speaks to you. She wears a broad, round hat, freckles and an easy smile – and a host of curved daggers amidst her dig tools that hang from her belt.
"Glad we were excavating a different pyramid!" she jokes, passing some roasted, oiled scorpion meat and a few cantines of water. "Hannah," she introduces herself. "Nice toys!" she remarks, her and her companions' wide eyes washing like greedy waves over your plundered pyramid treasures.
Camp breaks. By the time you're following the guide and traveling back with Hannah, you run out of time studying and experimenting with all the magical treasures from the tomb.
Just then, a sudden wind picks up, blowing blinding sand up around you. Amidst the camp's cries and curses of surprise and irritation, you swear you hear whispers from the cloud of sand and dust behind you that was once a pyramid – unintelligible, haunting whispers that identify all of the tomb's magical treasures in moments. Flashes of their forging, history and magic power rush instantly into your minds.
