there guide they picked up on the way leads them to a fishing village a few hours south of the ruins where they report to the locals of the massing of koblods not far from there doors
the villages send word to a local lord and the group awaits some men to help with the problem.
the next morning a sgt. and his 4 tropps come to town looking for the ones who reported the koblods and explain his lord will jot send more men without proof of these wild tails.
so the group set off back to the ruins with the men and find that some of the area has been flooded so they explore the other halls they dint last trip and find some koblod zombies. after some lucky turning by the cleric and lots of lamp oil the zombies are defeated but more flooded rooms await one room they find without flood is a large water storage room. on the far side they find a sailed room with marking and they decied to open it after a hr of work they manage to open it and find a crypt door that is trapped. after getting by this they find some golems and thinking better close and sailed the door as they fled . the sgt. happy with some armored corpses they which where floating in a side tunnel. the group decided they had enough of the place for now and head to town. after parting ways with the sgt they get a ship to the capital down the shore and spend a few weeks training and enjoying the festivals.

Bruticus ask the 4th wand they where looking for. the Lief says it makes scense as it is said to be connected to a great mage and warrior from the time of Sekhancha.

Bruticus ask so that is where the spell they cast led to ? Lief says no they only had an idea of the location It was where the rivers feed from the Highlands in the Elven forest to the north . But it would make sense it would be there doesn’t this throne look like the ones we found in the outpost with the other 3 wands. as they are talking Trantin is tiring to pry the throne from the ground and it shatters. the whole place begins to shake and crumble.
