From the eyes of Urza Van Burace
I started out my
by talking to a close friend called Joe Boxer, that made two for our
He talked to his brother Lytaya Boxer and he joined us also. I posted a
sign in the town square saying that all warriors looking for adventure
should meet us the following day at Lunch. We found a male half elven
and a female human fighter. The mage named Elfin and the fighter named
Laura. We had our group and five people seemed adequate.
We checked Givemea's Magic
shop for anything new, we didn't find anything but Joe and I bought
rings for fun.
Joe and I decided that we've
never been to the southern country of Acirema, so we thought dungeon
there would be fun. We thought of riding there but it would take so
I minor setback; Givemea has a teleporter so we teleported to
From there we bought new horses to
ride to dungeons. We rode from Bont to Nacour and in Nacour we asked
for ways to get to any dungeons. The bartender told us to go down
the road and follow that. So we did and showed up in Beate.
In Beate we asked for more
rumors about dungeons in the bar, nothing so we gave the bartender a
piece. We learned enough information to find the dungeon, he called it
Atad's Domain. So we stayed the night in Beate and during the night we
heard some rowdy drunks, that's
it. The following morning we ate breakfast and bought iron rations
and some ale. We left Beate to the southeast.
The road headed south then
gradually curved southwest, then north west then north. It curved back
down south and curved a little west and then east then dew south. We
entering some foothills not identified on the map of Acirema. Our party
stuck to the trail and eventually the trail slowly withered away into
double door that had the letter A with a D to the upper right hand
of it. The Ad was on both doors about in the middle. Both doors were
out with Xs.
I agreed to open one door
and Joe opened the other and we entered
the dungeon of Atad's Domain.
We entered a twisted hallway
and found a gem embedded in the wall. I told the party not to touch it.
I said that's way to easy for a gem to be there, it must be trap or a
So we headed west to for
the first room and found nothing there. So we continued south and
another gem and two doors which we said we'd go back to. So we
south and opened a door at the end of the hallway. We found some giant
ants and easily disposed of them.
After killing the pathetic
ants I noticed that in the corner there are four bags with something in
them. Some party members edged near the bags. I yelled stop and said,
too easy. There must be a catch. So I threw some dead ant bodies a few
feet in front of the trap. As I said, it was trapped. A single trap
was a few feet in front of the bags. Laura being the most dexterous
around the trap and picked and threw the bags over to the party. She
back and we left the room and went North. The party entered the West
and continued North until we had to go East in which we did.
We were back in the main
hallway in which we entered the dungeon though. We headed to the
and found nothing the room except for rubble. Our party left this room
and entered the main hallway once again. This time we headed East. We
the East door and found a long hallway with many doors. I entered the

humanoid creatures kneeling around a table. On top of the table was a

After the battle I looked
at the box and opened it from the back so a poison dart wouldn't hit
It wasn't locked or trapped. Inside the box was a rod. I gave it to Joe
Boxer to read, being a fairly strong cleric. He managed to make out
it said something about resurrection. So we found a Rod of
That brightened everyone's mood.
It was getting late so we
piled some zombies in front of the two doors. We woke up to some
at the West door. So the party was awaken and we moved the zombies out
of the way of the door. I agreed to go out first. I found a trail of
tracks. We laughed and went back to bed.
The following morning we
went threw the South door. We found
nothing in this room.
We exited that room and
into the hall. Across the hall were two rooms. We went into the
one first. There was a bag in the corner. I walked up to it and opened
it. inside it was horse crap. But there was gold spread through the
also. So I grabbed the gold and exited
The next door down had
nothing in it. So we crossed the hall and found some giant ants. Easily
slaughtered. After the battle we searched for secret doors and found

back to the main hallway. From there we headed due South. Inside the
Southern room was a Foyer room. With tapestries on the walls and old
paintings. We head south again and found a bare room. Pretty obvious
something here was hidden. We looked
for a secret door. Joe Boxer found it and opened it.
Inside the secret room were
four chests. Joe opened two and so did I. I found a small dagger and an
explosion in the other. Joe discovered two explosions. Discouraged we

In the Foyer room we decided
to go Southwest and found a hallway. In the hallway were five doors
the one we entered through.
We entered the first hallway
door and found nothing and that two doors were lead into this room. We
exited the other door back into the hallway.
The next door down was a
stairway leading down for 30 feet. Back to the hallway we went and
the bottom door and found a wine cellar I told the group to not touch
wine, it might be poisonous. So we followed a hallway stretching out of
the room leading North. We headed back to the main hallway and entered
a room we missed. It was a stairway leading up for 20 feet.
The next thing I remember
is being home in Givemea with all of our possessions in hand. We
identify our gems and Rod and found out that it was a Rod of
and we got 1150 gold.
