The third is another half-bridge stopping short of the far wall. Two of those creatures. Beyond the portcullis. Closer to you. The central platform is much wider but only 10 feet across. The canoloths are able to manifest within the chamber.

A deep chasm splits the room. Stepping on the pressure plate triggers the trap. Once the PCs have defeated the black dragon siblings. Two identical statues stand on the opposite side of the chamber.

This apparently empty hallway hides a deadly trap. Pulling the chain over a platform causes it to move into the empty space ahead of it at a speed of 10 feet per round. The pressure plate extends to within 6 inches of the walls on either side of the corridor. A DC 21 Search check reveals that the last 10 feet of passageway is a barely noticeable pressure plate. At the close of the Age of Demons. The shard imbedded in the ceiling is a Khyber dragonshard. PCs who take a closer look at the two smaller platforms note four chains hanging at regular intervals across the ceiling.

See the magical location description of the altar on page 10 and encounter A17 on page 24 for more details. Three niches are set into the wall behind the stone slab. A river of magma flows along the bottom of the rift some 60 feet down.

Within the dragonshard is a shifting pattern reminiscent of the Mark of Storm. It has a circular depression in its center where the globe that was its power source once rested. If PCs attempt to open the sarcophagus. The pattern inside the shard is similar to the Mark of Warding. A stone sarcophagus carved with draconic imagery stands along the far edge of the magma rift.

This is the signal the blue dragon double agent Khurystas has been waiting for. Choose your next words well. For that matter. A fast-moving party should be able to break for the jungle and easily outrun the well-armored Emerald Claw troops.

As the silver dragon spins his tale. See the magical location information page 10 for details. In a haughty voice. Dura and her minions strike.

The familiar lines of your dragonmark seem to shift and pulse in a way not seen since the mark first manifested. He asks for any relics the party might have obtained. Though your mark is still recognizable. The ship seems ready to sail. The PCs have a ship at their disposal. The PCs or at least the players might quickly assume that the appearance of these new marks ties to the time they spent in the altar chamber.

Whether the party interacts with them or not. Give the PCs a chance to note mysterious strangers following them at a safe distance. I cannot accompany you. At the rail. Dura should not appear in this encounter. I will increase your wages. Such an event would be rare enough. PCs who already have dragonmarks feel the same burning sensation.

They relish being in the center of battle, and redirect their attacks each round to the PC who dealt them the most damage in the previous round. The blackscales within the huts emerge 2 rounds after battle begins.

If the fight is happening at range, they toss javelins for 1 or 2 rounds before charging forward into the fray.
