Diary of Celestion Lyron Siédellia
Once in the city, I and the others searched for the orb, going towards the center. However, we were set upon by giant rats, and I valiantly fought them off, whilst Ralph Baby and Nina Atric took turns knocking each other out. I would have been amused were they not endangering my wellbeing, as well as everyone else's.
After the two aforementioned idiots finished healing themselves, we moved on to a gate, which required someone to listen to a song and track the notes with a lever while others fought off intruders. After I fought off several giant rats, the gate opened and I discovered a crack in a wall. Of course, it was the only way forward, so I entered, the others following.
It led to an ethereal-world, one containing a maze of streets and alleys. I wandered with the others for entirely too long, and then we reached a second gate like the first. I fought off more rats, and then we got to a third gate. Needless to say, we got past that one as well.
After that, we got into a bona fide maze, one that held bombs in it. When we got to the middle of it, there was a metallic bone beast – I cannot describe it any other way – that took forever to defeat. It seemed to be guarding the machine that held the orb I was seeking. I was targeted first as its quarry, as I was obviously the largest threat. It ignored the laws of physics and time somehow, because it would attack someone, then jump the full length of the chamber to knock someone off the top of the machine, even when it was being harmed by the first person when it was halfway across the room from them. I still cannot conceive of a way it could do some beyond some divine intervention that would make no sense.
We retrieved the orb, and the city crashed down around us, nature filling the areas it had been stopped from entering. The CMR was summoned, and we got back on it, giving the orb to Ornoc.
