Chi, Garrote, Sally and Tyrrian found themselves in transmogrified landscape of twisting corridors that went niether up nor down, or left nor right!!! They were joined in short order by two stalwart employees of Marcus. The first a large Gish bodyguard named Raj and a dwarven smith called Sparks McWeathervane.
The twisted halls of the house before them the disoriented party make for what they believe is the front door. Chi opens the portal only to find herself face to face with an alien landscape and a dark rider upon a
nightmare steed that rears and begins to advance upon the small elf! "Come Back! Come Back!" hisses the rider, "To Mordor I will take you!"
|Come back, come back...|
Chi slams the the door and turns to her companions, "We aren't gettin' out that way fellas!"
Turning to survey the bizzare paths before them the party is surprised to see a metal and glass container that they recognize as the "dead" wizard Istrobian fly out of a doorway on the left wall. "At last! At last the time is right, all the dimensions shall be mine to rule!" screeches the brain in a jar as it circles about the hall. Just then a strange portal opens up in the air and Istrobian, laughing manically drops into it and seemingly disappears!
"Istrobian has broken free and may have harmed Alexander! Follow me to his chamber. We must be sure our Wizard is alive." Leading the way Sally navigates the wild stairs and sideways doorways. As the party enters what they believe to be the chamber of Alexander they are surrounded by a blinding white light!
In quick succession our Heroes are swept across time and space, stopping for short intervals and dealing with strange creatures, allies, and enemies! And with each jump our heroes age a random number of years.
The first stop is an ancient city where the party is met by a duo-demon. The two headed being tries to trick the group/or does it! They come face to face with a giant demon from a bottomless well before being whisked away to.....
A giant arena, surrounded on all sides by a cheering crowd of humanoids of many types. They find an ally in a wise warrior-monk that bids them to be calm and they could escape the Arena of the Death! Drawing a magical blade the monk turned to face a beast unlike any other.....
of its clawed foot. Sally attempts to banish the beast only to have her magic actually banish herself and friends!
Next they find themselves on a vast plain before a volcano erupting a fountain of blood! A beautiful blonde princess astride the meanest looking unicorn you've ever seen appraises the group. "None of you are worthy of the title Battle Wizard!" waving her hand she summons a portal and sends our heroes whisking away again!
In the blink of an eye the group finds itself standing along a rampart, with a rag tag army of warriors, below facing them is a vast army of swerting. Battle horns sound and the vile army charges the battlement.
There is a flash and they find themselves in a richly appointed salon, a distinguished Wizard gives them a meal before sending them on through the vortex of dimensions!
Landing in a thick jungle, the party soon finds themselves aiding a mighty amazon Queen in battle against a tribe of skull-men intent on sacrificing the princess to a dark god!
At the height of the battle vs. the skull-men, the shaman opens a gateway that allows our heroes to use it for their own purposes! Bidding farewell to the Amazon Queen the group travels on......
At last they track down Istrobian in a strange blasted landscape. He has hidden in a metallic and stone fortress to work his dimensional magics!
Or did they......
In the end the y made it back, some forty years older physically. Also Sparks was fatally wounded in the final battle and died in Sally's arms. Emerging from the house as a fire raged inside the sun rose on a new day, with new adventures in store......
