With the dying scream of the mortally frozen earth titan, the heroes knew it was time to vacate the premises. They managed to grab the slain hill giant chiefs roughly hewn gold crown as well as a chest full of 9,000 gold pieces. They then followed the hollowed tunnel into the center of the mount Hotenow and thus found the second divine engine. This one was wrought of platinum, adamantium, and sky metal, that fabled material to aid the champions against creatures of chaos. The machine was motionless in its force field, but the heroes knew the ritual to bring down the field. They then teleported back into the safety of D Argent, gaining a level along the way. (14!)
Returning in victory, they discussed matters with Rowthar, who had also been busy with research. To work the sky metal, he would need to find his people, the stewards and companions to the champions of D Argent. The lion men who called themselves Torrians had vanished during the great war 100 years ago, and he had found evidence that pointed to the head steward, the proctor. There were potions that would allow the heroes to go back in time to the time when the torrians abandoned D Argent so long ago. SO they did, and discovered stuff, which led them to the Hidden Vale, where they got to batle a few wily lion men at a river crossing. Nothing major.
Then they made it to the Torrian village and spoke to a demon that had possessed the lot of them. Thokk slew 28 of the civilians, including women and children, whilst chasing the demonic voice as it leapt from torrian to torrian. Eventually through the strength of will of the heroes, the were able to defeat the possession and force it to flee into the hills to the southeast. Good job everyone!
