Pentatina 7, 2559

Having saved Patch from his condition, Wingra and the rest of The Rustoleii exit the rod of security and re-enter the Underdark.

They return down the passage that led them to the lake where the aboleth attacked them and took the other tunnel in the fork they encountered days earlier.

The path seems more promising as they find more ruined stonework embedded in the otherwise seamless basalt. It is sparse at first but then begins to become more common until recognizable walls appear.

This construction eventually vanishes until they find themselves in rough tunnels again. They then encounter a drow patrol.

Continuing beyond the battle with the drow, they again find ancient elvish construction that leads them to a nearly intact building.

Entering the building gives them palpable chills. The wander through the stacks of a vast library until they find an open area. As they approach, dust swirls up to form a humanoid form with a gem-encrusted skull as its head. The jaws part, releasing a terrifying howl. From this point, the battle is on against a demilich.

After defeating the demilich, a search ensues for the plans to create the artifact. They find what they are looking for as well as a vast chronicle in draconic, dwarvish, gnomish and elvish of the first three and a half cycles of Lehnbor's Workbench's history.
