On the planes below the City of Acadia, Lady Willow challenged the heroes with finding the Map Room located within the ruins of Castle Daxica.
On their first night within the city, the heroes were attacked by Baneguards, part of a faction loyal to Lord Bane and devoted to taking over the magical city and finding the Hammer of Havoc, an ancient artifact of great power once belonging to the Cleric Throckmorton Mason. The party defeated the Baneguards handily, then fled as reinforcements arrived.
Shortly thereafter, using contacts Shyivar had recently obtained, the heroes found a secret back entrance to the castle, easily bypassing the traps and ruins beneath the city streets.
The heroes used the Holy Symbol of the Raven Queen to bypass the locked doors keeping “something” within the Castle.
The heroe spent the rest of the day avoiding traps and talking to rather annoying ghosts before discovering the Map Room and obtaining the locations of all of the Hearstone Shards, relics that must be destroyed in order to prevent the coming convergence of worlds. Moments later, they were confronted by Daxica, a vampire who once ruled Acadia. The Vampire was defeated by the simple expedient of pushing him out a window to fall 550 feet into daylight.
With a job well done, the heroes returned to the Inn of the Silver Cup…only to find Lord Bane’s men waiting for them
