An insight into the thoughts of the band of adventurers, as they plunge bravely into the darkness, pursing their nemesis Frulam.
“My bow thirsts for vengeance, and vengeance will be mine! The blood of the Kobold’s does not slake its thirst. The sweet blood of Frulam and her compatriots three is all that will satisfy”
“That Frulam was a bit of alright. I might have time to seduce her now that I have run off ahead of all the party… WHAT! How did they all get down that rope ladder so fast.”
“Hit-em. Hit-em. Hit-em. Hit-em. Hitum HIT_EM”
“It really is quite crowded with this party, perhaps further time in isolation is required. But the lure of being able to study a dragon brood up close is too compelling”
“A rope ladder. If we get into trouble I could climb right back up here quick smart… or maybe I should stay down and fight… or maybe climb back up”
“Hoot” — I can’t believe I have survived this long on 1hp
Unfortunately the band of adventurers charge straight into a well orchestrated trap. Not only are they facing Fulram and her spell of “kill 3rd level characters”, but two other massive obstacles…. Langdedrosa Cyanwrath the half-dragon who kicked Hitum’s butt so soundly previously (not to mention his 3 “henchmen”)… but also a clearly trapped chest with a light fingered bard nearby.
Thanks to a character trait that no-one thought would be important. Hitum was compelled to accept Langdedrosa Cyanwrath challenge for a second time. Perhaps with an extra 2 levels he could beat the half-dragon. Well the answer was yes and no. We did defeat Langdedrosa, however his henchmen turned out to be even tough than him, and Blake conveniently set of a massive gas trap (or maybe that was just his lunch).
End result: baddies 3 – heroes – 1 McGuffin makes quick his escape with Shadow Catcher following close behind.
The party of two return to Greenest to mount a rescue or corpse recovery mission. Fortunately at that exact moment 3 other adventures appear that Lord Tightpurse suggests could help with the mission. Two (stange) paladins and a barbarian. They are welcomed into the party immediately with the proviso that they are “better than the last batch”
Time is running short. Pictures of dragon cubs feasting on his companions fills Shadow’s head, along with thought of all the treasure and coins they were carrying.
The party of five strong once more enter the cavern… which is eerily quiet. McGuffin fudges some rolls and determines that their companions have been dragged off to the south. So the party decides to head North…. just so they wouldn’t get flanked (or miss out on uber loot).
They enter a cavern and are soon set upon by not one but three different monster groups! A band of cocktail throwing Kobold’s, some guard drake’s and a hungry Roper Above!
As the party finished mashing the three groups of monsters (with several death saves needing to be made), they turn their attention upon the other object in the room. Dragon Eggs!
“Did anyone bring the bacon!”
