Realizing the place was too vast to claim and assistance would be helpful, the squad started to head out. As they passed the Vainor statue, half of the group heard something with Shayline sensing desecration[despoiled] from the area. Advancing Murvoth smelled something putrid, and struck at it under the assumption no corpse should be lingering such a stanch. Removing one, yet overwhelmed by many more after dealing with the dust from one he destroyed. Murvoth swept through the group surrounding him and Shayline holy channeling blew a few others up. The aftermath was a dust cloud so thick that Murvoth took a bit to find his way out of it.
Murvoth needed to clear his lungs when he finally found his way out from the cloud of dust. After the dust settled Jarvis and Shayline scouted ahead to investigate. Exploring more they found a shaft with sound coming above from fifty feet. Exploiting her abilities Shayline shape changed into a bat to go check it out. She discovered something magnificent, essentially another large area to explore. Either brave or nearly suicidal, everyone went to go climb. Now wandering in an unknown area extending the area to travel. Unlike the dark tunnels below there was a bright light source coming from the ceiling high above and some distance away. The squad headed straight for a building that they saw through the trees growing here, underground. As they approached the building the light started to dim, and water started to fall as though it was raining. They decided that it would be best to try to get inside the building out of the “rain”. Once inside they found all sorts of pipes, and machinery covered with crysalites that they did not understand. The metal building clanged with the pouring rain, hurting the ears of the majority as they escaped and opted to camp outside for the night.

Mesmerize with this strange area, they began to find the artificial light source that resembled a sun. Finding the bizarre device, Murvoth gazed at it long enough to be afflicted with sun blindness. Water was glimpsed further away through the trees and Murvoth was led to it where his eyes were covered with damp cloths hoping to relive his blindness. Other buildings could be seen further away across the water, so a decision was made to build a sturdy raft to go travel to check them out.
24th of White Stag
After 5 days working and finishing the raft, they ironically find a different entry-point into the area. Soon it clicked, this was in actuality a Builder’s settlement. Rorauk found this to be significant enough to not only report to Granyt, but even to the Clan Chief.
