Sul, 1 Zarantyr 998
The party met at a masquerade ball at Ashinana’s Oasis, roughly 75 miles south of the Karrnathi border and north of Gatherhold. Once there, they see the Cynidacians, albino humans who have lived underground for centuries. A crew hired by Ashinana just found their city nearby. Ashinana and most of the guests are affected by the Elixir of Dreams, which causes hallucinations and delusions. The most docile guests, including Ashinana, are herded onto a wagon. The party members are the only ones not affected, so they gather to try to save the others. Before leaving, they discover a Cynidacian priestess locked in the well room. She tells them that the guests were drugged by followers of the Blood of Vol so that they could be taken to be sacrificed. The party takes the priestess and follows the wagon.

The party followed the wagon. The Cynidacians had left fresh horses at several stops along the way, and the party took these horses to speed their progress. However, the horses were tired when the party found them, so they couldn’t catch the wagon until it arrived at its destination.

When the party caught up with the wagon, it had arrived at a half-buried pyramid, and the passengers had been unloaded. A single Cynidacian was guarding the entrance. The party quickly overpowered the guard, and left him with the priestess. They entered the pyramid and found a massive sacrifice in progress. They defeated the Cynidacians, and the Neheshru, the priest leading the sacrifice, mentions experimental drugs in Vedykar and Korth. The party emerges to find the priestess dead and the guard gone.
