Destination Unknown

Hounds of darkness and light - 5

Prelude

After being cleared out by the Professionals the dungeon named the Halls of the hounds was contracted to the Gleamers to document for the royal society and strip down for the marketplace.

A statue of a hound made of black marble sat on a plinth in a half domed alcove opposite another identical looking statue made of a white marble, when trying to move the statue they round the white hound would spin in place breathing out a freezing fog and opening a secret doorway leading down a a hall to a set of white doors, both the hall and door were decorated in white and blue stone with scenes of wintery pastoral landscapes with the depiction of a ice palace on the doors themselves.

The black hound when disturbed spun while shooting flames out of it rear end and open a door to a hall in black and red stone depicting a bleak volcanic landscape with a temple like building built into a volcano on the doors at the end.

As Farnsworth the head of Gleamers doesn’t think his scavengers are up to exploring the two side halls he has offered to allow other to explore them asking only a 10 percent return.
