Session Report: It's the End of the World As We Know It...
Finally Glacia passed her saving throw and was able to penetrate the bubble, and in two leaps bounded all the way across the battle, and into the back room. So focused was she, that she didn't even see the Illithid playing with a machine in the back of the room. The machine that was casting the eerie light. The machine that extended below the surface into the earth. Which was shaking violently by this point.
Nonetheless, the damage was done. The machine spun to stop, but the earthquakes continued to rattle the dungeon, causing portions of the cave to collapse entirely and lava to spew from the earth. Grabbing the Holy Relic of Moradin from the dead Illithid, the party ran as fast as their legs could carry them, but the earthquakes knocked them from their feet time and time again. Just as the lava was cresting and about to swallow them, Veravum, the hapless Githyanki paladin, opened a planar portal and rescued them.
Passing through the astral plane on their way back to their flying ship, they saw the Githyanki Astral Fortress Weissehaupt burning as it fell through space. Clearly there was some serious s**t going down. Arriving back on their boat, they saw the earth rippling like water. The horizon to the east, the direction of the Human Lands, was glowing steadily as lava overtook it. To the south, they watched the entire Elven Nation rip itself from the earth and spin away into the sky.
Veravum helpfully pointed out that the Holy Relic of Moradin was mined by the Moradin himself from the earth beneath Sigil, and posessed, among other things, the ability to function like a portable Spelljamming Helm. A debate immediately began with regards to who, if anyone, should be saved from the impending global apocalypse. Some suggestions included an order of Militant Wizards, a tribe of yeti, and "F*ck 'em all, I never liked anyone on this dirtball anyways."
Only time will tell what becomes of the party!
