The PCs individually saw a falling star and went to check it out. They found an oval crystal that “sung” when held by anyone of draconic origin; but most loudly when the paladin held it.
The PCs were drawn South by the crystal. The Dwarven religious retreat known as The Deepening Tower was their final destination. They were attacked several times before reaching the city of Tolmar.
In Tolmar, they took passage on The Sea Star, a a fast ship with an able crew that wasn’t opposed to taking adventurers onboard. The ship was attacked by Sahuagan seeking something the first mate took from them.
The ship had a layover in Shran, where the group dined with some local elves and killed a bard thought to be carrying a violin that once belonged to Darius’s father.
Upon reaching The Deepening Tower, the party was awestruck by its beauty and emptiness. They met with The Adamantine Father and the Holy Seer.
A Doppleganger disguised as a Dwarf on a pilgrimage tried to assassinate two of the party members after dinner.
The party was escorted to the lower levels by the Seeress, where they are facing a series of trials to determine their worthiness.
