The team came across another sealed door with a puzzle lock. Blazing Sun entered a combination and was burned. Blazing Sun entered another combination and was burned. This continued a while. Eventually, Singing Mammoth figured out the pattern, entered it, and opened the doorway.

The group entered an enormous room where a young woman struggled, bound, upon an altar. She had been smeared with blood to form crude blasphemous sigils. The team recognized Runs-with-Deer! All around, Keeper priests chanted prayers to hideous ghula. A partially robed woman holding a wicked stone dagger stood behind the altar. She swayed in religious ecstasy as perverse utterances fell from her lips. She was close to completing an unholy ritual!

The priests moved in and hurled spell curses at the party with little effect. Arrows, spears, axes, and wolf teeth tore into the Keepers! The under priests went down quickly, but the priestess was made of sterner stuff. She stabbed viciously with her dagger and hurled curses at the team. In moments, she died at the hands of the team, and Singing Mammoth claimed one of the sacrificial goats staked in the corner as his own. Wolf Spirit freed Runs-with-Deer who told them the “guardian” was beyond a sealed iron gate. The team debated how to get through for a while before realizing they had the key in their pocket from a chest discovered recently.

The team moved into a cavern, but Runs-with-Deer was weak from her ordeal and stayed back. The dark dank cavern chamber was filled with faintly glowing lichen, and a putrid pool stretched into the darkness. A stalk with three orbs protruded from the water. Eyes! With a loud splash and terrifying roar, an enormous frog-like monster leapt from the pool! It had eyes on a stalk above its head, and its body was mostly like a frog, but its forelimbs were replaced with four writhing tentacles.

The horrific froghemoth tore into the team, driving most of the party back and to the ground with its battering onslaught. Blazing Sun worked her way behind it and setup a flank with the wolf. Singing Mammoth dropped back and fired volleys into its hide. A hurled spear from Wolf Spirit preceded his closing in with his axe. The froghemoth battered the team and nearly killed Blazing Sun. She was beaten unconscious, but the team killed the monster and stabilized her. The team then discovered the next fragment of the Dawn Seal just below the water surface!
