Souvenir: Translation 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 significance.

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.
