Rune Brian Cuicatl Xiang Bu after traveling even deeper in the Underdark in search of the would-be assassins of Chief Einar Sull , were set upon by vile Skumm, who captured and imprisoned them. They awoke to find themselves in a village, seemingly above ground. Very quickly it became apparent that all was not as it seemed, as a voice revealed to them their fate as starving emaciated drow fell upon them in droves. They were in some sort of underground zoo – put together with powerful illusion magic and slave labor.
The slaves they freed helped them, and they managed to fight their way through enclosure after enclosure. They came upon a breeding pair of Pegasus, and were forced to put them down from their anger and madness.
They fought a vicious hydra, who attacked them from the murky deep of the waters below a stone platform.
They them came to the last room, where their captor was revealed to them – an ancient aboleth trapped in the tunnels beneath. He asked them to please return to their enclosures, he knew better now – he knew how to make them happy. Knew the right environment.
Then the thing waved a tentacle – bestowing a vision of the past upon each other party.
Unfazed, the noble adventurers then massacred the Skum – culminating in Xiang sinking his arm to the elbow within the slimey head of the aboleth.
Freeing the slaves, they set out to find their way home.
