New Model Colony

The Mystery of the Mine

Two colonists followed three previous parties into a discovered shaft that a local mining concern accidentally broke into recently.  Following the previous parties down, they found a small five-room complex- all underground, yet possesses of constant fresh air.

The center room consisted of shaped stone in a square shape that had open arches in each wall and a central statue figure.  The figure is that a beautiful androgenous near-human figure holding in its two hands a unstoppered flask.  A plaque, in its tongue, seems to be a name plaque; it reads "GISH".

On each wall is a series of murals, mostly faded by time, depicting the figure first wielding weapons in war, then wielding magic in war, then doing both simultaneously and finally teaching others like him how to do so themselves.

Each of the four other rooms, connected by corridors also shaped out of the stone (as are these rooms), is a dome-shaped room; all of them have concealed places for storing things like scrolls or sword-sized weapons (depending upon the room).

One of the room is shaped for sound, one room is shaped for using magic,another room is meant for martial training, another party is dead here, and the last room is for contacting spiritial entities.

The colonists recovered artifacts from the slain reptilians as well as journals and treasure from the slain parties and artifacts from the uncovered complex itself- most promising being an ornate sword.

There was no combat, nor any difficulty with traps, this time.
