Our heroes began their approach to the ruins via airship, but were shot at from a suit of magitek armour on the ground, causing minor damage to the airship. Junius set the ship down behind a tall dune, using it as cover, and our heroes ventured out on foot.
They fought a pitched battle outside the ruins, and despite some scrapes and bruises, managed to emerge victorious. With the remaining members of that squad of Kalshan soldiers having fled the battlefield, all that remains is to finally enter the ruins and explore them.
However, something feels different about these ruins, and nobody can quite figure out what.
