Chapter 5-15Last time Marius had eventually received a decant adventure in China.
He was to go looking for Ancient Scroll. Now that was just up Marius’s alley.
Since he was still searching for the piece of the map rumored to be in China.
Heck any information on Draconus Vallis, would make him happy.
So off to the Ancient Monks Retreat he was…
Triggering the feet stone, opened the way below.
As he clear one of the rubble piles, he found a hole in the wall. Fiddling with it, he open
up a hidden door leading to a treasure chest.
So he returned to the room were the key he was given would fit. And trough the door he go…
He had to move same statues around, till he found another hole in the wall.
After some logic solving traps, having to figure out the order to switch it of in. To get trough
Marius make it deeper into the retreat. Find a chest on the way…
Pass more fire traps, this time. He only skirted it, pushed the statue on the gear stone. The
door to the room he wanted was open.
Inside he found the writings. A quick look show that there was mention of the Elven map
piece. Deep in the bowls of the Dragon Cave. But the keystone to the entrance have been
missing for a very long time.
with this knowledge he took the writings to return to the Martial Arts master.
He now has 3 tombs in China, moving slowly to completing his LTW.
The next evening, when a new adventure was placed. He made sure to be the first.
It was to find the keystone to the Dung Hou treasure. Rumor has it that the keystone was
buried beneath the market place. So Marius looked around, and found a trigger behind the
As he head inside. He had a marvelous time, breaking boulders.
Below the boulders he found holes in the ground, with just as marvelous treasure.
Slowly he made his way trough the maze of tunnels. Opening hidden doors, and finding wonderful
With a keystone, he found behind a hidden door. He was able to open the door to the room he
needed to be in.
Looking around he did not find any information on where the lost key to the entrance in the Dragon
Cave could be. He had hope to find something. But maybe somewhere else.
So he left to give the keystone he found to the man. This was the 4th tomb he fully explored in
China and still so little information on Draconus Vallis. He had put his heart on finding what he
wanted to know here. Where legendary Dragons ruled.
Handing the keystone to the man, he ask that Marius get permission too enter Dung Hou’s
Marius was of exploring again.
In the treasure rooms, he found gems and Ancient coin. But there were also some lovely old
wines. Marius helped himself to some of it, to take home.

red one on a gear stone.
He collected all the treasure including a family treasure. From the main treasure room. Inside
one of the chest he found a volume that described a battle General Dung Hou had taken part
in. It was on an Ancient land, where people of legends life, he helped them fight dragon as in
real life Humongous Dragons.
This was the most information he got yet, for Marius was convince. The place mentioned was
Draconus Vallis. The volume did not say, if they won or lost the battle, but he believe that all
his trouble getting trough this place, was worth it.
Now he only needed to get the piece of the map from the Landgraab Chateau in France, and the
piece somewhere in the Dragon Cave. He know that he would not be the one to find the piece
lost in the future. But he plan to make sure the legend and all he know will continue with his
