The party woke up and arrived in the strange temple underneath the mountain. There they found a kobold wizard and his henchmen they were able to trick into revealing what was going on. Apparently the cult was trying to revive a dragon named Pyraxus by securing an artifact from the dragon’s ally, Thsathar Rho. The group continued through the area and found themselves in a large dead garden. Beyond the garden was a lower sanctum, containing a room where creatures were being transformed in pods and a temple construced of the flesh of still living mutated kobolds. They killed the priestess there and rested for the night.
