World with Twin Fates

The introduction...
An adventure begins

July 1st, 2011
The party awoke to the sound of other men putting on their armor and sharpening their weapons. The man standing at the door way says once again, “Meeting in 10 minutes don’t be late.”

As you walk into the room you see the man that hired you. A cartographer with the following description:

This boorish gentleman has slanted eyes the color of fine silver and blood red. His fine, straight, black hair is worn in a style that reminds you of a seashell. He has an angular build. His skin is cream-colored. He has a strong chin and small feet. His wardrobe is strange.

He speaks, “Hello everyone I do hope you’ve all had a good rest. Today I send the last of you out to the newest ruins we have discovered. As you all know these new Coatl ruins have been discovered in the high canopies. Bring me back accurate maps and the artifacts that these ruins hide and you will be paid out the sum of 500 gold for each of you. Your guides will point you in the right direction”.

As everyone finds their guides you realize the room has emptied out except for a few of you rookies.

Gathering up the rookies followed a jungle walker out to the canopy. With the sprawling jungle in front of them they made their way to the coatl ruins. There the group found old sentries long forgotten to natures care, a hall of roiling maggots, and traps of true terror. After an hour or so the party settled in for a break…

The ruins mapped so far…

Bryce has fallen...
One adventurer passes

July 8th, 2011
The party explores the ruins further. Discovering an unactivated power core they activate the inert ruins by using Raka’s electrical blade. Upon reactivating the ruins an ancient sacred idol awoke from its holding place.

Afraid of the ancient being Bryce and Lucco fled the room. Meanwhile the idol showed its power by unleashing blast after blast of lightning. Afraid for his life Raka ran through the exit and held the door closed behind him. Leaving Jin and Iltani alone with the beast. Enraged by Raka’s selfish actions Bryce forced Raka back into the room and called for Jin and Iltani to follow him.

Jin barely hearing this had already opened another door to try to escape, only to be confronted by a set of overgrown stone gaurdians. Hearing Bryce’s voice the party escaped back to an earlier chamber. They barred the way with wooden palisades while Bryce explored. Suddenly the sacred idol shimmered into existence in front of the group. Deciding it was time to stop running they felled the ancient idol with team work.

Afterwards the group thought it was a good idea to get some shut eye the party lit a pit trap ablaze to keep the maggots away and slept in the inert lightning trap room. After a tense but full rest the party awoke to find their exit path covered in rot grubs.

Charging face first Bryce took the fight to the maggots only to be devoured alive. His screams of agony only making his party fight harder. After felling most of the foul things Lucco saw Bryce’s hand twitch. Thinking he could still be alive Lucco went over to Bryce’s body. His stomach retched as he approached. The maggots were writhing in Bryce’s body, the twitching coming from maggot spasms underneath Bryce’s armor. With a slit and a smash Lucco ended the grubs feast on Bryce’s corpse. Taking the treasures of the ruins the party left for the jungle canopy.

Once outside they turned to see the ruins activated form. A large glowing sphere of energy levitated the top half of the ruins and the stone floor underneath them hummed with power long forgotten. In front of them a portal formed and inside the vague outline of humanoids fighting could be seen.
