8th cycle 20th day, Year 5850
Towards evening, after exiting the Zamuco tribe territory, the Green Gems stumbled over a basilisk. The fight ended with Kelal being a stone statue. Salazar obviously knew about Greater Restoration and Bebe knew that some alchemist could make an antidote oil of sorts from the gullet of the basilisk. Salazar then recalled the Cara elders mentioning a halfling druid living nearby, but he couldn't recall exactly where, so he used his magic to ask a local parrot. The parrot led them to the druid's den. Late at night the druid, called Milo Goodbarrel, finally returned and agreed, upon hearing of their mission, to help Kelal.

Kelal is cured of his condition, and the Green Gems head towards the ancient city
Late in the afternoon, they arrive. They enter the city and head towards the pyramid, dodging many undead creatures on the way. As they enter the pyramid to stop the necrotic smoke, they find themselves facing a Yuan-ti mummy and some skeletons. After a long fight, they manage to kill the evil creature, not the least thanks to Salazar's produce fire. They find some tablets, 4 potions and a mandolin as treasure. As they attempt to rest, they are attacked by 4 Yuan-ti ghouls, but they handle them easily.
