of the Scroll of Tielekku
The adventure began when your contact told you about some unusual
activity in a warehouse. Investigating, you found Warriors fighting
Banished Pantheon cultists as both groups searched the warehouse for
something called the Scroll of Tielekku.
Your contact found that the warehouse held the disputed estate of the
deceased hero Ross 'Darkvine' Coldwell, a former member of the Midnight
Squad. When you went to speak with the executor of the estate, you found
the Banished Pantheon already on the premises, searching for the scroll.
After defeating them, you found out that the Warriors had already
absconded with the scroll.
Fortunately, you were able to track the Warriors down and recover the
Scroll of Tielekku. Unfortunately, you still had no idea of the scroll's
That changed when your contact was approached by Dr. Cheng, a renowned
mystic scholar, who said that he might be able to translate the scroll.
In order to do so, he would need reference materials that were currently
in the hands of the Circle of Thorns, somewhere in the depths of their
ancient city. Braving all dangers, you recovered the books and returned
them to Dr. Cheng.
While you had been busy, your enemies had kidnapped Debbie Coldwell and
Dr. Duncan Silver, the heirs to the Coldwell estate. You were able to
free the heirs, but something wasn't right.
Too late you learned that Pantheon cultists had stolen the Scroll of
Tielekku back from Dr. Cheng. Fortunately, he had already completed his
translation. After reading through it, you learned the story of how the
ancient goddess Tielekku was the first to discover magic, taught magic
to gods and mortals, and used her skills to banish a pantheon of
cannibal gods to the darkness. Alarmed by this information, you hastened
to the Pantheon's hideout and retrieved the scroll.
Unfortunately, the Pantheon had already gleaned enough information to
lay a trap for the goddess Tielekku. You attacked the Pantheon in Dark
Astoria, and were able to alter the ritual. Instead of trapping the
goddess, you sent a message to her, a warning that the dark gods she had
banished so long ago were back. You don't know if Tielekku heard it, or
even if she still exists. But perhaps one day soon she'll return to help
rid the world of the Banished Pantheon and its cult.
