This place is a nightmare, poor Nutty never stood a chance as we got squished a bit too…
Room 1: 6 Statues, the heads move and there are bones on the floor —> we strategically decide to move along quickly without looking at the statues
Room 2: There is a huge Mosaic on the floor with a man in armour riding a pegasus and spearing a Chimera. Wait a minute, where did the Chimera go…it’s come alive and attacks.
Blake cleverly uses his Shatter spell to good effect as we all go into breaking tiles action.
We defeat the mosaic Chimera and start our searching. There is a tile that looks different, wonder what trap this is…more later.
Room 3: A room labelled ‘Safe’, there is a well here and mushrooms – runaway…mushrooms
Room 4: Double door, looks scary with big dents pushing towards us…let’s do this room later
Long corridor leading away from Room 2: Shadow triggers a trap…bone boulder is appears from unusual tile in room 2 – hits and collects Hitum and Shadow for mega damage
It carries us to another large room and yet does more damage – from max HP to single figures just from this damn trap.
Ryndel spikes the boulder tile so it can’t come out.
Room 5: Shadow hears voices again and Ryndel figures that we need to bow our head down and lift our hand up as if holding a lantern to show humility to Mystra
Room 6: an empty library with a wailing ghost complaining that somebody has stolen it’s books. We say we will help her…as if we can find those damn books…
Room 7: A throne room for Dederius with a pile of treasure in front of it. A tall muscled man is on the throne asking tribute. We start giving it gold and silver etc, but nothing happens.
Aha… it’s an illusion, it’s actually a Clay Golem. We fight it but shadow gets hit and can’t heal some of the wounds (needs a greater restoration spell). The treasure has some silver and stuff and some kind of potion.
Room 8: Lord Zyriel’s servants from beyond the Iron Gates. We prepare to fight them, but they don’t attack. Give diplomacy from Blake and they tell us that Varram is downstairs. Lord Zyriel wants Tiamat out of the 9 Hells.
We leave them alone as why fight them when we don’t have to.
Room 9: We go down the stairs and find a elegant Bedroom. Oh hell…as we start to search a bunch of Spectres and Wraiths appears and attacks. They are nasty and the Wraith almost turns Blake into one of them. We are victorious but need a long rest…lucky there is a nice bed here. We search and find an old book, and a Undead Rune, we chip the silver from it and leave it under the pillow…
Time for a nap…
