Immediately after entering the portal the party is attacked by Harpies and Slystone Dwarves.
After defeating their attackers, the party interrogates one of the Slystone Dwarves.
The Slystone Dwarves and Harpies belog to a group of fey that have come to the temple in search of the Incunabulum Primeval. Their leader, “Our Lady of the Deathly Song”, has the book, but the fey have been unable to leave the temple because none of the teleporters are working. They believe that the teleporter malfunction is due to another faction they have encountered in the northern part of the temple. Currently the fey and this other faction are at a stalemate for control of the temple.
The party proceeds to the western part of the temple and eventually finds a secret door leading to the dwarven vault. They encounter and defeat more fey there, and collect a considerable amount of treasure.
The party decides to rest for the night in the vault, and when they wake up everyone is level 10.
The party then proceeds northward into the temple underchambers. There they discover an area that includes a forge and monastic cells. This area is defended by 2 dwarven constructs and a magical trap.
From there the party loops back southward into a huge cathedral area.
