Valyndur Teglelven and Eclave Khilirac were out training in the gorbog caves in the underdark last cycle. Specifically, the passage where the gorbogs and acid beetles are at. Valyndur and Eclave made thier way from Szith to there. Upon arrival, they noticed an odd blue fog at first with fairyfire, followed by spells being cast and black clouds. They stood near the entrance to the area where they came in at and noticed it was getting colder for some reason also. They spoke to each other about it a moment then decided to check it out.
After they approached the first black cloud, a tall black creature, or thing, which reached up to the ceiling attacked Eclave. Valyndur was busy fighting the beetles that are normally in this area, but Valyndur saw it too. The tall dark creature or whatever it was quickly disappeared after attacking Eclave briefly. Valyndur ran to Eclave to help him, then suddenly illithids appeared from the darkness and attacked them! They fought off the first several illithids that appeared. Soon they were outnumbered and ran for the next area.
Upon reaching the next area Valyndur and Eclave saw a rivvil fighting trolls. They knew where they were at after seeing the trolls and they noticed that the illithids blue fog and black clouds followed them here. It gradually appeared and filled the area where they were. The rivvil noticed it too and asked what was going on. They actually told the rivvil to run and they kept running also but the fog and black clouds grew in the area. The rivvil actually had the sense to run and leave which he did. Valyndur and Eclave was hoping the illithids would get the rivvil though. After the rivvil fled a duergar showed up, wondering what was going on. Valyndur and Eclave quickly explained to him what was going on. Then, the illithid leader appeared and in its mind, it spoke to Valyndur and Eclave saying "Who are you!? Why are you two in our realm!?" Valyndur and Eclave answered it and said "Your realm!? The underdark here belongs to the illythiiri, not dos!" It had not noticed the duergar at first. Then the illithid leader attacked all 3 of them. The 2 drow and duergar fought bravely against the illithid and managed to hurt it, but that is all they could do to it. Then the illithid disappeared. They looked down on the ground after the illithid disappeared and saw Eclave lying there unconcious and wounded badly. Valyndur was able to revive him and the duergar tended to Eclaves wounds with some healing.
They all looked around and the illithid was gone althought he blue fog, black clouds and fairyfire was there. They the 2 drow said "We need to get back to Szith and warn them about these illithids!" And with that the duergar went his way and the 2 drow went to Szith to tell who they could of the illithids....
