About this creation
Galarud: I tell you, things are crazy these days...

Barkeep: Oh yeah, more so than before?

Galarud: Well, Lord Dextrus commissioned Saladus and the Nahtämatu to seek out the Water Crystal. Not sure why, something about the High King needed it for unity. Anyway, Saladus chose several of us to go with him to find this mythical crystal. I was skeptical, I have to say. I've heard the crystal stories since I was a kid, but I never dreamed that there was any truth to it!

Barkeep: Humph....children's stories often hold more truth than most would like to acknowledge. That would make the world a scary place!

Galarud: Yeah, well Saladus has always dealt in the shadows, so he says he already know where the crystal is. I asked him why he hasn't gone after before, and all he said was that there was no money to be made by finding it until now! So, we set out to the edge of the Great Escarpment and enter the Ruins of Mägi Linnus...another children's story, or so I thought.

Galarud: The mummies were crawling all over that place...
Barkeep: Doesn't Saladus keep a pet mummy?
Galarud: Yeah, though he treats him like a brother. Praise to the Desert Lords that Saladus didn't bring him along this time...I think he knew it would be tough on him. We battled through the mummies and deep under the desert. It seemed that the dark tunnels stretched through eternity, and I felt the despair of that dank air more than I care to admit.

Finally, we reached the crystal chamber. There was a sarcophogus before the crystal, and Saladus warned us that there was a legendary guardian that kept the crystal. Most of us didn't care. The way the eerie light in that cavern reflected in the crystal put most of us into a frenzy. I can't explain it, but it wanted to be found....

Galarud: Next thing I know, this 'thing' rises from the stone. Saladus called it an earth golem...I tell you, that was the first time I was ever happy to have that elven witch that Saladus keeps with us, than at that moment! She pulled some sort of energy out of the earth and destroyed that golem.

Barkeep: The elven magic draws from the desert. They have powers that are spoken of only in the deep of night.

Galadus: I can see why, that was eerie. But it saved us all. At that moment, as the Golem crashed to the floor it hit the sarcophogus and knocked it open. The darkness that fell on that chamber was the darkness of eternity. Then light slowly returned as out of the sarcophogus rose a pillar of flame and smoke. In the center of it was a hideous creature.

Galarud: It was a Lich lord....Saladus told me it was the spirit of Sonuja Al Katma. He says he intensified the power of his own magic enough to thwart death.


Barkeep: So...what happened?

Galadus: Umm...I'm not exactly all seems a bit fuzzy.

Barkeep: You mean you turned tail and ran?

Galadus{blushing}: Well, anyone would have. But not Saladus and that elven witch. I'm not sure what happened in there, but they came out with the crystal.

Barkeep: What did he do with it?

Galadus: I assume he gave it to Dextrus Flagg....but I think he may have struck some foul deal with that Lich. There is a gleam in Saladus' eyes now that wasn't there before...

FYI....the picture I posted of the Ruins entrance is from a free build from a couple of months ago and should not be considered for the challenge. It is only in here for context!

That hole in the wall with the doby guy looking down through it... really cool. The lighting must have been challenging, given your choice of colors in the tomb, but you did a great job with the photos! Rally good stuff! Attack!
