The group finds a room they believe to be of sacrificial significants and begins recklessly attempting to solve another enigma. Delmirev sacrifices some of his blood into a bowl and a Shadow Demon appears. The Shadow Demon focuses on the paladin and Tiefling as a battle of two worlds collide.
The Shadow Demon proves to be a difficult challenge to the party, however eventually with a lot of help from Delmirev, the Shadow Demon returns to the nine hells. Still unsure on how to gain entry past the locked door, the exhausted and hurt party continues to spill blood into the sacrificial bowls. Using their own daggers, Delmirev, Thia, Thulben and Milez all cut themselves sacrificing their blood. The plan still doesn’t work, as Imps surface from their blood and attack. Thulben falls victim to one of the Imps and starts bleeding out as he is lyes unconscious.The party defeats the Imps and revives Thulben in the nick of time but are still at a loss on how they must please whatever God they’re sacrificing to.
Eventually Yousiff remembers that the Kyuss Dagger that Thia has must be used for the sacrifice. The party cuts themselves one by one again, except as Delmirev goes to grab the dagger he feels the negative energy from the Kyuss Dagger pierce through his skin. Thia grabs Yousiff and cuts his palm over the sacrificial bowl. Undead versions of everyone who split blood with the Kyuss Dagger forms from the blood and attacks the party. The Undeads are no match for the living and are all sent back to their shadow realm. The large double doors unlock and the party peeks inside only to see more Zombie Paladins and a Wight inside. The group decides to rest in another area of the temple before continuing.
Upon awaking, the party travels back to the sacrificial room. They devise a plan of attack and lunge into action. The plan goes well for the most part, but the Wight then summons a large Bone Ogre and an unseen threat comes to life. Delmirev conjures an ensnaring strike on the Wight causing it to be trapped where it stands. Thulben rages on and smashes his way though the countless number of zombies while Milez and Thia use a combination of magic and arrows to fatally kill other zombies from afar.. Milez overuse of magic causes him to cast a magic surge that causes both he and Thulben to become confused. Thulben rages on while confused and accidentally sees Milez as a threat striking him and causing him to fall unconscious. Luckily for Milez, Thulben then targets the Bone Ogre and delivers a critical bludenoning blow, knocking the bone ogre back into a pile of bones. Delmeriv defeats the Wight and revives Milez to his feet with his healing touch. The party looks around at the massive carnage of bodies and bones and realizes they’ve prevailed, but wonder, where did Yousiff disappear to?
