THE THING WHICH MUST NOT BE NAMED. CR 24… YES I SAID TWENTY FREAKING FOUR.
18,000 Experience for Each Party Member.
Each party member recieved one platinum figurine that is shaped like them. One time, and one time only, as long as they are carrying this minor artifact upon their person. If any effect or damage would kill the character, The damage or effect is negated, and instead they are subjected to a Heal spell (Caster level 20th), Their turn comes immediately, even if this would interrupt someone else's turn, and they gain a +10 sacred bonus to all stats for that turn only. And then the artifact is shattered. It cannot be purposely activated, and any action that could be deemed as 'suicidal' by the DM or Op in charge, causes the artifact to fail and shatter with no effect.
The time finally came, the party, with the help of the Archmage Viktor Seldrane, travelled into Yuria's psyche to do battle with the fragment of the elder god. The battle was long.. and at several moments it looked as though there was no hope, but the party pulled through and banished the evil back to the plane that it came from, unfortunatly, Arcanaethall was lost in the process.
