Kukane, feeling that the party would be stronger if Erevan joined them instead of holding the portal open, went back and convinced Erevan to come along. The group, already weak from their trials that day, struggled their way through several traps, before finally being pulled thought a magical portal. The travel through the doorway left them unconscious. After some time had passed, they awoke, well-rested in a clearing. A being who identified himself as the former king of the Kurlo Empire told them they were not worthy of the treasures of Pelor. Then he and his magical creatures attacked the group. After a short battle, which the group easily won, the being surrendered and told them that he had misjudged them.
