We climb down the wall into the graveyard and see that the skull woman is meditating, probably working on a spell as she is lying on the corpse of a dragon. There is a small cauldron in front of her that contains a brain. She seems to be pulling it apart with her magic. There are skeletons roaming the graveyard.
It is decided that the best tactic is to rush her. We go full speed for all out attack. However there are just too many skeletons and zombies roaming around, and whenever we attack them they explode. Zanne strikes a zombie with his spear and he detonates, nearly spraying goo on those nearby.
Fianna charges through the fray and savagely attacks the necromancer, striking her with a life-ending blow. She manages to knock her mask off to reveal a beautiful face and flowing red hair.
Suddenly a pool of blood rises up from the ground and creates a menacing form, then moves to attack us, spraying crystallized blood.
The dragon, seemingly dead until now, rises up and coughs a huge amount of black phlegm onto Zanne. He falls and seems nearly dead, as the phlegm is flowing into his mouth.
Fianna strikes the dragon and it seems to be causing the necromancer pain. She tells the rest of the party to attack the dragon.
Lennon uses healing magic on Zanne, but it doesn’t seem to help much.
Miri uses his bear familiar to dump over the cauldron with the brain in it.
The necromancer climbs up onto the wing of the dragon and it takes flight.
The pool of blood suddenly forms into flying pools of blood that looks like birds.
A lone skeleton continues to try to attack us, but is unsuccessful and no one seems to pay attention to him. It is suggested that we do not kill him and let him wander after us for eternity.
Zanne finally succumbs to his wounds and dies.
Miri’s bear spirit manages to push the necromancer off of her dragon and she falls to the ground. She finally seems to be slowing down from our strikes.
The gate coming from the city into the cemetery opens and a legion of fighters pour into the yard, led by a heavily armored woman on a horse. They are coming closer, but dozens of undead are in between us.
The group finally fells the necromancer. We find a telepathic ring that can allow one to converse with dragons. It also can create an illusory dragon and notify evil dragons within a certain range of its existence. Obviously she used the ring to call the dragon in the first place.
We also find a chunk of gold in the bottom of the cauldron. It is the missing piece of the crown!
The woman, Thia, quickly introduces herself and says that she hails from Mirabar. She has heard of the legend of the sacrifice, which this woman clearly is, and offers to help return her body to the fishing village.
As Miri looks at Thia, he sees the flag of Allegondor in front of her face. He lets the other group members know about it.
Since there is clearly danger still present here, we try to beat a hasty retreat.
