The Elder mentions that the Levithians created the Engines. He claims that he’ll help get rid of the Blue Sign. The Blue Sign will open the eyes of the believers, five fingers of sea will adorn the chosen, man will bear the viasge of the blue king, fish will walk the land and consume the living, the waves will crash and eat the shores. The Blue King will rise and take his children to enter the Leviathan. Two of these seals are already broken.
We have to collect the first two pages of the seals. He gives us a map to head to a temple and we have to beat the cleric to the pages and they cannot be destroyed.
Temple of the Blue God, one in underdark under lair of Ocular Superiority, and one in the jungles to the northeast (cloud giants). The fifth dungeon is in ice to the north on an island. The sixth dungeon is deep underwater in the Sea Kingdom. The most dangerous is the book with the Elder Red Dragon who first banished the Blue King who lives in the mountains to the Southwest. This is the same as the dragon the dwarves are trying to take out.
Luca leaves money behind for Garth to make the endless bandolier.
Lord Kipp, Owlbear-punching dude, Harsk, Luca, Dale, Kreg, Mowgli, Gullycloak, Pygmy Minor, Grimsbone, Orpheus the dwarf come along on the drillcar. Kreg creates a magical apprentice to help. Harsk finds a sand boa constrictor and they make a fantastic meal.
In the middle of the night, Luca sees a man crawling, yoked to his own cart. He’s fucked up. Luca gives him some water. His name is Ichabod of the Hail Merchants. He offers to sell a very special ring in exchange for Grimsbone. He gets blackmailed into giving up the ring via threats. He is very angry and vows vengeance,
The temple of the blue god is the first stop. It is far to the southwest in a swamp.
They head on the way. Nothing happens on the next two nights. Fourth day, they have delicious “desert lobster.”
Gullycloak has a dream, he gets sucked into a deep whirlpool into the watery deep. As he keeps going down, a radiant blue glow surrounds a giant metal cap with the Blue sign on it. One of the clamps holding down the cap breaks. This is the night of 12/5.
On the night of fifth night, Duergar the Lightning merchant, sells Harsk a Celestial compendium. He hands it off to Gullycloak.
Sixth night, nothing happens. On the seventh day, they hit a water pocket and they nearly drown, but Kipp’s masterful driving saves them. Harsk has a fear of water now having nearly drowned twice now.
A guy in a crab suit, named Dave Crabman, is a great and powerful bard. He takes the medallion of thought projection. He tells them about the Blue King. The dragons defeated the Blue King. He mentions more of the Blue King’s return. He very specifically describes the exact details of the first dungeon’s location. Leucothia, the Blue King cleric, holds a cult there. They keep “holy objects” of their religion there.
Eighth day passes. A fish man tells them a story about the Guardians of Lore and the Blue King. He says the secret way into the temple is in the back of the chambers.
They meet some more merchants over the next few days and learn there is a beast in the jungles to the northeast.
On 12/15, they finally make their way to the temple. They try to break their way into the church after being shut out.
