Enough Monkey Business Already

Zor, the 10th of Aryth

A jungle clearing contains a large pyramid rising from the ground, its top in the shape of the maw of a large ape. The steps are trapped heavily and Ja’Red comes forward to detect them. The group follows in his footsteps as they make their way up. About a third of the way up, a dire ape appears above them and begins to hurl vials at them, striking Ja’Red and causing him to slip in a puddle of grease. Pol boldly charged up the rest of the way, equally dodging and setting off spear traps to get to his opponent. Kreshton, Dadak and the rest climb to the top step and are confronted by a large ape-man with a golden crown. Kreshton meets this new threat with his blade as Dadak begins summoning a dire wolf to help him. Kreshton is quickly downed by the ape-man’s strength while Dadak and Pol destroy the altar on the top step. Ja’Red has trouble joining the battle and N’ketchi’s god seems to have abandoned him as his spells do little or nothing to help the battle. Finally, the dire wolf rips out the ape man’s throat and the altar is destroyed.
