Once it became clear that the werewolves weren’t going to be easily reasoned with or leave in the near future the party began to plan on how they could get to the center without fighting three werewolves. Eventually they decided to try and sneak in, but they were discovered before they got half way there. The werewolf began to retreat immediately upon being attacked and the party except for Aarovin The Archivist turned back. Under the cover of his Obfuscate Aarovin made his way inside The Tri-Vault and Mattias Quincy opened a portal so the rest of the party could join.
Inside they found a ring at the bottom of the cave that seemed to have a similar composition to the Stygian Gates. Inside the ring was some sort of thick viscous fluid that when Carter Altman touched it almost overwhelmed his mind with emotion and thoughts. The party notes that the fluid inside seems to be the source of the heat and the material actually shows no heat readings at all. Seskatonkwa “Stampedes the Herd”‘s new ’friend’ claimed that he had friends that were trapped inside and asked the party to help release them.
Unsure how to proceed Mattias began to try and prophecy what would happen if they released the beings inside and he saw terrible things, murder, death and corruption would run rampant. He was able to determine that they could release ones that wouldn’t cause harm by releasing them individually. Also, the party might be able to more completely seal it off with some yet undiscovered ritual.
