Our heroes learned from the last run in with the smelly Kuo Tao the day before (or what they perceive to be) and continue on much more cautious. Nonetheless they run into a another group of Kuo Ta who immediately send of a runner to get reinforcements and attack the party. After a tough fight the heroes decide to not pursue the runner as they where hurting quite badly. Before the last Kuo Ta dies, it warns off the party that they will be stopped and that they would never find it. Dravalonik searches the Kuo Ta corpse and finds a map and a sketch of a strange looking key. So they make a short rest to tend to their wounds while Mara searches the tunnels for they key marked on the map they found and finds it after a short search in the rust monsters lair.
After the short rest the party continues on down the only remaining tunnel/cave and keep going for a few kilometers until they spot a light shimmering around a turn in the tunnel. They try to sneak up on whatever casts the light but get noticed before they even get to the corner.
To anyones astonishment the party runs into Professor Aetoris, and old teacher of Gheido from the University he attended after joining the old guard. Professor Aetoris tells the party about a vision he had in which he saw a traitor to Avalon arrive in this world and that a great evil is on the move. Hence he is looking for an old almost forgotten library the old guard had an aeon ago and ask the party to help find the two keys that lead to the hidden portal that leads to the library.
Our heroes agree to help and hurry off to get the last key from a group of Kuo Ta some distance away. After arriving at the camp site of the Kuo Ta they try to sneak around first and open a door that creaks o loud the guards hear them. after hiding successfully in a room the try to leave, but fumble very very badly….
