The party walks around the perimeter of the lighthouse. It is old and indeed made from stone blocks arranged like immense bricks with a 120 foot x 120 foot base. It has no windows and there appears to be a walkway about 90 feet up where the structure steps to a more narrow tower.
To one side is a small attached brick structure, probably where a keeper would live. There are several shuttered windows on the structure and a set of double doors to the front. The party moves inside and finds remains of furniture in what is obviously an old living quarters.
Throwing the shutters open to let light in the party finds an entrance to the lighthouse proper in the rear of this structure. There is a passage though the thick stone wall.
The party cautiously moves into the interior of the lighthouse. The floor is rubble strewn. 4 Immense stone communes stretch upward and a little light filters down A stone staircase heads upward climbing along the inside of the wall.
At this time Armand sees blue flames rolling down the stairs. It startles him, but no one else sees this. Apook Sees his dead father sitting atop a pile of books and beckoning him upstairsAlynis is spooked by something as well but does not say what she saw. Alynis Apook and Tiberius head up the stairs.
90 feet up there is a door which the party opens onto the balcony that surrounds the smaller upper structure. Far out into Wooly Bay, there is a large ship with yellow sails attacking a smaller vessel. Red magic tendrils shoot from the yellow sailed vessel, wrapping and pulling the smaller vessel in. The party can not do anything about this and continue up the stairs.
The stairs are still along the wall but the tower has stepped inward now only about 70 feet in diameter. The 4 huge pillars have run into the walls of this upper tier. From the darkness flittering of wings are heard.
Creatures resembling huge rats, with leathery bat like wings and large proboscis rush at the party form the dark. Armand Is quick with a Thunderclap spell which bursts within the swarm, most of the creatures fall from the air. The rest are dispatched with more magic fire from Apook
Another 70 feet up along the stairs and the tiers dramatically narrow to a 20′ × 20′ tower in which a iron spiral staircase leads up 40 feet. As the party starts to climb another of the bat like creatures attacks Apook. Alynis and Ganra attempt to get the creature off Apook who has been knocked over, they then discover that the creature is dead and has just fallen on them.
Finally up the stairs the trap door is opened to the roof. The blue flame burns brightly in a 10 foot diameter stone basin. It does indeed burn without heat. To the east out in the Bay the party sees the small ship they saw earlier on fire and the yellow sail ship quickly moving off.
A point of light begins heading at them from off in the Bay, Quick Archer (Ganra) slides back down into the tower as the light approaches, magic spells are hurtled at it without effect. It is then noticed that the light has a chest inside it.
The visage of a skinny old man appears and a voice is heard “For my children” as the words are spoken the flesh melts from the old man revealing a grinning red skull. The vision fades. The party opens the chest which reveals 40 Iron rations and 40 silver pieces.
Ganra yells up from where he took shelter, “there is a blue light coming from below”
