Everybody Limbo!

Our heroes finally discovered the correct path to the end of the maze.  (It happened to be they simply needed to run back into each portal they stepped out of!).  In the final room they found 1/4 of the compass symbol on the floor of the central block.  When they touched the silvery symbol, there was a great flash and they found themselves on the central platform and the maze was gone.  They next climbed the giant chain to the island that looked like a large stone field.  There they had to push a giant stone ball across a field while trying to dodge 3 iron gorgons.  Although Varis was turned to stone, Kane was able to push the rock across the field causing that island to disappear.  Varis was cured by throwing him over the edge to his death.  He appeared at the island again but again, he came back a little more broken.  They then went to the island that looked like a cylinder.  It was very dark and the heroes were attacked by dark oozes.  After removing the slime, they tried to reach the symbol at the top of the tower.  As they reached for it, the tower flipped over and Didy was thrown into the void.  After some searching and thinking, the party managed to stop the tower from flipping by holding a valve in the middle of it as another hero jumped for the symbol.

They have recovered 3 out of 4 symbols.  What it will free, they are not sure.  What does the last island hold for them?  Time will tell…

Maze of our mind

So after running around the woods for a while, the party made it through the correct, purple, gate. The gate, however, did not lead them to the Feywild. It led them to the keeper of the true gate, a sphinx. The sphinx created a magical dessert around the party and asked them several riddles. The party displayed amazing intelligence and successfully answered all of the sphinx’s questions. The guardian allowed them to pass into the feywild. They ventured onto the university where they learned of a student who had gone missing when studying an evil book. After considerable deliberation the dean of religious studies allowed the party to study the book. After a few pages were turned, the book sprung a magical trap, throwing the party into a pocket dimension. They found the missing student and he had gone completely mad. He tried to kill himself but he only reappeared! It seems that death does not kill you here, it just drives you slowly mad. The party found themselves on a floating block with 4 other blocks of various sized chained to it with giant chains. They made their way along one of the chains to a small block with 4 other larger blocks floating around it. Entering into the block they found themselves jumping through portals into different mazes. They have been fighting minotaurs and getting very tired. They hope the end of this hellish portal maze is in sight.
