Trapped between the portcullises, Valeria uses her trident to gather the golden, bubbling remains of Bea’s possessions: a lightning wand (Mildred), a ring of shield (Mildred), a ring of spell storing (Mildred), Wow! Bear (Ervendio), a glass bead of avert evil eye (Valeria) and her spell ook (Ervendio).
As they are looting their friend’s items, the portcullises unlock! The elderly dragon-kin the Revengers left to die comes through — with no hatching eggs, he wants to die fighting a dragon. Old Man D leads them through the rest of the trapped chamber.
Before they can move on, Carol/Ann and Lil Yankee are sent through the golden bubbling portals of Bea’s wild magic energy. Lil Yankee — unbeknownst to all, but knownst to herself — has pickpocketed Lex, Golgaraz’s piece of the rod. Meanwhile, Dru Dracos emerges BACK through the portal, having had a fight with his girlfriend, and having realized he was better off facing his demons than running from them. Dru is given the glowing blue blade it is an intelligent dragon slayer.
Suddenly, a head-splitting pain cuts through each of the Revengers — something has happened! Some of them puke. But what has occurred?
Old Man D leads them through a foggy chamber that interferes with their infravision. They come to a fire-breathing dragon that repeats the same thing, again and again: “Begone trespassers! I am tired of your excursion into my mountain, and I will tolerate it no longer!”
Dru and Valeria charge ahead, ready to battle the beast — but the others realize it is a false dragon head. Ervendio finds a secret door behind the head and Valeria, quaffing a potion of storm giant strength, rips the faux head in twain.
They head in and see the great dragon hoard — mounds of coins, magic items, and treasure, atop which rests a VENERABLE RED WYRM. The creature greets them! “It is good to finally meet, face to … faces?”
Valeria CHATKAS the creature, killing it in one blow. It polymorphs back into a kobold — secretly, it was Fragalax, the chief of CLAN WYRMGUARD.
FURAN THE DEFT emerges and monologues villainously. He is actually — she! Infryana, Queen of the Mountain. Infryrana offers to let the PCs live if they leave their stuff behind. But the Revengers attack! Dozens of kobolds emerge from the shadows, and a NOLAN appears, attacking Midlred & Ervendio
Mildred sets off some black tentacles against the dragon and Ervendio and Golgaraz protect much of the party from fire. Dru is ENLARGED and he rushes the dragon. Infryana fires her breath weapon — Golgaraz and Old Man D are hideously burned. Valeria tosses a hasted-ax , outruns it, and attacks — the ax lands, but her trident hits Dru and nearly kills him. Dru, wielding the intelligent dragon slaying sword, lands a devastating blow.
Old man D, in a last act, destroys the nolan with the lightening wand he wrestled from Mildred. The dragon-kin egg Mildred was carrying hatches and the youngling feeds on the crispy, still-kind-of-allive D.
Ervendio fires a poison arrow and it hits Infryana — in the eye! The venerable red wyrm dies on her treasure pile. The smoldering Golgaraz strums his lyre of building, nearly hitting a DESTRUCTIVE note, but instead plays the lullaby of Lil Yankee one more time.
The rest of the kobolds are destroyed, and Mildred searches through the hoard for the 6th part of the rod. Unwilling to claim it herself, Valeria invites Dru to become a full-fledged Revenger. "Yeah, fuck it,” he says, and claims ECCE, the 6th piece of the rod.
With a massive dragon hoard to their name, the Revengers find a hidden path nearby that leads out of Infyrana’s lair. But the Mountain That Moved has moved — that strange, head-splitting sensation from earlier — and they find themselves in a strange new world, surrounded by rainforest. They are approached by mounted, armored warriors investigating the strange mountain.
The warriors raise their helms — they are sauriels, intelligent dinosaur people, who remark: “There goes the planet.”
Three have been lost: Kit, Bea, Golgaraz. Two more friends met in transit (Duncan Urd and Old Man D) died to secure this sixth piece of the rod. Carol/Ann and Lil Yankee have been sent away, and their safety & fates are unknown. The Revengers are lost on a strange new world, a different plane of existence. The dragon is dead, Ecce is recovered — but what now?
