We stopped there.
The Trading Post
So we went back down thru the Burial Ground with Cher to check out the machinery. We drained the cylinder and found a platform at the bottom with railroad tracks on it. The platform is chained down. We checked the rails and the ones outside are a mix of both Hellstrom and some very high quality Biyou Vermilion rails. We played with the machine, unchained the platform and flooded the shaft and the platform floated up. Some of the others decided to climb the mountain and see what was up there. I stayed behind with Cher and Beau, Jake hung out in the machine shack. We were hanging out there for a couple of hours as Clara. Preacher, Jason climbed the mountain. They spotted a shack on the other side and went down to it. As I found out later they found another machine with three switches. we heard the scream of Ghost rock and then the water level started to rise. All of the sudden the light coming in the tunnel entrance went dark, A door had closed and blocked it off and the water really started to rise. I headed over to the tunnel and climbed up to it. Cher decided to hang out on the platform. It started drifting towards the other end of the cavern. When the water was up 10 feet Cher said there was an opening in the other wall so I swam down to her. SO the opening was only 18 inches high and we watched the water slowly rise to where the disk would fit thru, but before it got that high we climb thru the hole into a room on the other side. The room in there had some machinery of some kind and there were four paddles hanging down that appeared to be triggered by the platform when it came thru. Once the disk came thru we climbed up on it and tied a rope between two of the eyelets. we hung on there as the water reached a level that sent the disk into a shaft on the other side. It was a crazy time as we floated and fell down this tunnel. Then the disk got struck and we got thrown off a two hundred foot cliff that luckily had water at the bottom. We found ourselves in the bottom of another cylinder with a wall that was broken out, thru the hole we could see another bone alter and a bunch of skeletons walking around, we also saw what appeared to be the legs of the another bone giant. We kept quiet and did not make a lot of noise in the hope we would not attract their attention. We ran thru a bunch of ideas trying to figure a way out of this. We broke up a piece of Ghost rock she had and managed to ignite it and dropped it into the water to see what was below. It was another disk room, with a disk chained down there. But it was too deep for us to swim down. I tried chipping hand holds in the wall to climb back up to where there were stairs, but it was making to much noise and we were afraid we would draw the attention of the skeletons. We were getting to the point where we were going to try going thru the happy hunting ground but Cher says she is hated by spirits so not sure it was safe for her. We heard some creaking from above us and looked up to see the disk falling towards we dived into the water in the hopes of not being killed by it. Luckily it did not fit down into the shaft but we were pinned under water. I cast strength of the bear and pulled the rope down on one side to give Cher space to climb out, luckily between her weight and the Preacher they were able to tip the disk up high enough for mew to breath. Then Clara and Beau came flying down the cliff face a few minutes later. Luckily for us Jake managed to stay up there but he did not have enough rope to reach us. Beau used his skills and lifted the entire disk up to where Jake was and after we all stepped off he used the disk as a missile and slammed it into the room with the skeletons, killing them all. Me and the preacher climbed back down to set the bones to rest, the alter was still there and the preacher was going to go over and beat the alter with his cane, but I reminded him we did more damage with guns last time, so he shot it up. He recovered a necklace from the ruins of the alter. We then went in there and when we were gathering the bones I found the way out. So the others came down and we searched the area, finding another hidden room and a Bone Scepter and a journal. We took the scepter to be destroyed later. We climbed the stairs and came out just a short distance away from the Collegium. I asked Beau to blow up the entrance to the burial grounds so it could not be abused again.
