On we went exploring the vault. Suddenly Marina felt the presence of a dreadful sphere of hate to the east. We were near the evil Miras Athran ! Some steps futher we found another scroll of dig demands. After pulling the switches we entered the Ancient Crypt. A long floor led to the south. Slowly we stepped forward awaiting the attack of a monster-like mage. But nothing happened. Suddenly we heard strange noise from a chamber to the east. We went in and there he was !
Leisurely Athran sat in his golden armchair and invited us to step near. But he wasn't so relaxed he wanted us to believe. I caught a glance from his eyes. He was trying to hide something. We remembered the deadly sphere of hate that was supposed to be around Athran and decided to leave the chamber at once. Marina took a deep breathe and entered alone, taking the Gathalak with her.
A thunderstorm went down. Flashes surrounded the chamber. A deep rolling went through the ground followed by silence. The scattered door opened slowly. Then Marina came out of the chamber holding the Gathalak above her head. She'd done it ! All the Shadow Ghosts had been saved. Miras Athran sent to hell. But after a while Marina fell into Toronars arms, sobbing. Toronar explained to us that with the killing of Miras Athran she had lost her holy innocence forever. It took some minutes to calm Marina down. She had given her innocence for a good purpose. We all were proud of her.
Now that Athran was defeated nothing held us down in the wet cold catacombs. We explored the rest of the vaults and found the Chamber of Gathalak to the north. Maybe this was the place where the staff belonged to. But we decided not to drop it. At the end of a long floor in the nortwestern part we found an inactive teleporter field. By using the Gathalak a teleportation sphere appeared which also set free the Shadow Ghosts. We teleported into the lowest part of the exit stairway and left the catacombs.
It was late in the morning. The sun welcomed us, it was mild and we were in a good mood. Tinius would be too, if we reported to him the good news. On our way we deposited our money on my check account at the Bank of Chaos. In the whole over 1.1 million piasters had we made during the last few days ! We walked around a bit just to enjoy the good wheather and the feeling of being rich. Then we teleported to the castle and met Tinius again. He welcomed us friendly and thanked for the proper pass of the quest. As reward he gave us a noticeable account of money with special greetings from the king himself. Besides that the king allowed us to enter the Vaults of Alarian.
Well, the idea to spend another day in the catacombs actually had no attraction to us that moment. We were curious about the country behind the mountains which now was accessable by the cavetrain. We went to the next station and bought monthly season tickets. We entered the train and left at Desert Falls on the ohter side of the mountains. We began to explore the country. In a valley to the west we found a marvellous Crysthelm (133oz W4-A16-D7-S8-M35) which I put on my head. The mountains to the south of the valley gave us a Skullhammer (178oz W9-A0-D0-S3-P9). Mages told us to seek an old beggar near Cassida in order to get some informations. So we did.
North to Cassida we found two interesting things. Northwest there was a mysterious stone circle in which centre we found a message: Two must go down and three must go up, only then you can enter the Erin Crypt. Northeast there was a strange wand stuck into the ground which couldn't be removed. Since we didn't find the old beggar at first we entered Cassida. The people there were very strange that time. Unfriendly and selfish. We just couldn't talk to them. They always answered our greetings in an insulting manner. Sadly we left the town although we had found many valuable items in the niches of the streets (Angelrobe, Evilgloves, Berserker potion, Charm3 potion, Intellg5 potion, Dxrty3 potion, HPplus1 potion, Magic Sack, Starwand, Lizardcap, universal Kingsboots (7oz W4-A12-D4-S4-M34), Spell potion). We had to find that old beggar. Something was wrong with the Cassidians. On the street in front of the town's gate an old man asked for some money. We gave him the small amount he demanded and listened to his story.
Along to his narration the Cassidians once had been cursed by the evil Thardan. Their leader Bergarac had been turned into a statue. Thardan took his heart, turned it into stone and disappeared. But one of the mighty Cassidian mages had been escaped. Although the old beggar seemed to be a bit strange too, there had to be some truth in his story. We decided to ask some other people for more informations. Until the evening we didn't hear something new. We returned to Cassida in order to find a dry place for the night. We crossed the Memorial Place of the town. In the centre the statue of an old mage was to be found. Marina touched it and sensed that life was still inside. Along to the beggar's story this had to be the cursed Bergarac.
