The party since failed in it’s quest. Thorn the ranger is given a hero’s burial.
To get to the Royal Library for the information on Acererak, the party needs to go to the Royal Arcane Academy and get into the High Wizard’s office and recover a special ritual book and a special pouch of magical components. Everything else in the room is explosive and/or dangerous so don’t touch anything else. Don’t let anyone steal the amulet, or lose it in any way- if necessary destroy it instead of letting it fall into the wrong hands.
Once complete in quest, use a sending ritual to activate portal, don’t actually cast use portal, it will explode in the party’s face.
A female Human Warlock walks in, introduces Burns, the party’s new addition to the team.
The party used a Teleportation Circle, Smashed down a door, knocking over some empty boxes and engaged the enemies. The party killed them, walked down a very long hallway, and once the door was opened- Paelias went and put out the torch, resulting in a large explosion in his hands, quite comically. After killing the lot of them, we left off getting ready to head downstairs.
