“ I Just flew” CILANDRA
Several times during our needed rest in FINDEN STONEMENDERS Tomb while we rotate watch posts we hear noises in the hallway
Voices- low murmurs – something hitting stone
Luckily we get the rest we need and prepare to leave our secluded rest spot
We decide we may have missed something in the stone cult dungeon so we decide to backtrack and investigate
We see a familiar chamber with collapsed walls
Walk on for about 25 minutes dim and dark we walk single file through a narrow passage which becomes more hewn into a proper hallway
Large room that is square shaped with smooth walls and 4 massive square columns where we fought the spiky ball statue and see the rubble from that altercation
There is a passage to the Left
Dim light 30 feet ends in a doorway
Rough crumbly debris under foot
No sounds in chamber
We open the door to the room it’s a 40 by 40 with square door to the right
Inside the room is a stone sarcophagus with a damaged and beat up frieze on the wall above
GUNDER uses DIVINE SENSE – detects no demons
RAIKON inspects the sarcophagus – which Is not human sized, but smaller with script on the lid
GUNDER reads the DWARVEN inscription in the etchings
“Rest ye here HENDRIL FOEBREAKER bow head in valor”
GUNDER wants to protect the sarcophagus and pours out some alcohol for his ancient spiritual homey
ONYX bows in reverence and spends time cleaning the rubble form around the crypt
GUNDER receives a bonus for his connection to this great Dwarf Warrior , reminiscing if the first time he used HENDRIL”s magic hammer calling it “TOE BREAKER” and ONYX
Receives =5 to HP max =5 to current HP a for 8 hours “ HENDRIL’s HALLOWS”
GO straight to door SLINKY goes through and through her worging CILANDRA sees rectangular large room 90 by 100 north to south with 2 huge ratty bed rolls beat up barrels stacked against the walls
Weird purple glow from purple crystals and we can’t see exactly but there are rocks piled in the center of the room – no one seems to be in the room
The rocks are arranged in a pattern- as if a game was being played
This was yet another room we held battle
Crystals filling the Narrow passageways
Door to the north with a uncomfortably narrow passage in the cavern we dodge the jutting purple crystals twist and turn – slow going
Passage way opens purple stones dissipate vaulted room bathed in violet light flanked by giant stone humanoid statues grim masks of foreboding.
Rough cavern 80×4-x50 feet
Passage way out
There is broken armor and weapons scattered around the room
We look around at all the stuff
RAIKON encourages CILANDRA to “ Turn her eye on “
A moment later something huge drops down from the cavern stalactites with a huge thud
It’s a creature with one massive red eye. Quickly tendrils appear and we see beneath the eye a massive maw with razor sharp teeth!
RAIKON is 10-15 feet away and a tentacle shoot out and reaches out to RAIKON! he attempts to parry off with the sword he had picked up to investigate and gets an immediate chomp scrape on his forearm guttural sounds coming creepily from the beast.
“That’s kind of bad”
ONYX runs up to the RAIKON leaps and attacks one of the two tendrils which have wrapped amazingly fast around RAIKON
She hits hard and severs one of the tentacles which unravels its grip on RAIKON – writhing and retracting – RAIKON gets out
GUNDER issues a HUNTERS MARK and Attacks the big body of the beast and he also SHIELDS
CILANDRA casts dark energy over it- withers away – looks like it may have caused damage to this alien creature
Tentacles now again on RAIKON begin to tighten and constrict – we have never seen anything like it!
First thing- turn the hug back! One of the two attacking tentacles still has him in it’s grip
RAIKON uses Trent Reznors; magic shiv trying to stick him in his stack!
“ I am a cephalopod not a gastropod!
Another tentacle reaches out to RAIKON wrapping around him and another one wraps around GUNDER
Needle like pain from the beast’s appendages hurt RAIKON as it reels him in closer to it’s mighty mouth and it bites RAIKON who feels horrible and tries to drag himself out RAIKON is now bleeding and in great pain
ONYX attacks the body ! WHACK!
GUNDER remembers as he is in the grip of this fiend hearing stories of creatures living underground who look like rock and had taken out large groups of miners
He MISTY Steps out of it’s grip and goes behind it- magically disappearing reappearing and attacking!
He attacks with Foe Breaker scoring a CRITICAL HIT on the fearsome rock monster
His HUNTERS mark helping!
CILANDRA attacks with a great ELDRICH BLAST
RAIKON tries to hit with his dagger as he is mostly impaled… no luck he is again drawn towards it’s big sloppy spiky maw!
On the creatures next attack it sends a tendril to ONYX who gets wrapped in its’ nastiness and it attempts to pull her towards it …she feels her strength being drained…
It Chomps on RAIKON who is now barely hanging on and covered in blood!
ONYX musters her strength and cuts herself out – still feeling needle pain and seeing icky black ooze on her flesh but upon being detached feels her strength coming back
GUNDER ready to throw his mighty hammer again, slips in the creatures ooze but hits on round tow = pshew
CILANDRA focuses her power on her next ELDRICH blast and scores a wicked CRITICAL HIT!
Desperate RAIKON slumping over does not give up his fight and somehow is able to send the creature MAGIC MISSLE – pew pew pew
And amazingly the creature lets go and is done in ! KILT!!!
(Spells only work if they’re coming out of your body! )
We survive the vicious attack of the freaky monster!
We look around and find-
A small leather pouch with 62 gp
Brass statuette of a little impish goblin creature eyes set with Onyx stones – not magical
Hidden in a small pile of debris is leather clothing with a finger bone with a faintly glowing ring on it – with a little buff it cleans up nice!
It is a blue glow with waves decorating it. A Ring of TARANSMUTATION
CILANDRA puts it on and it shrinks to her finger comfortably the ring glows and the etchings move a little – CILANDRA doesn’t immediately feel anything and we muse it may have to do with the WATER CULT
We leave to the passage to the North which then cuts to the right and head downward more purple glow- which gets brighter we are in a big cavern – hard to tell how big it actually is
Stepping into the room there is a loud, steady, thunderous noise like earth quake grinding
We are over taken by the brightness of the room-
GUNDER is hypnotized and disoriented and begins wandering off Onyx lightly slaps his face to try and get him out of it we see a humanoid body slumped against a rock column
It is a dead human with a stone cult breast plate armor sitting in a pool of dried blood
The noise coming from the passage ahead is louder still like a rock tumbler
Moving through the cavern cautiously we come to a huge room full of mud the walls look like they have been torn and blown apart like an earthquake- may be the result of the thunderous closing of the portal or OGREMACH
SLINKY goes ahead seeing debris and rocks, shattered bone fragments and looking above it’s a familiar bridge- the one where we battled the rolling rock creatures e hear the frightening and familiar clicky sound of the horrible creatures we remember tousling with who were in great numbers – large with hooks on the end of their long arms
We decide to wisely avoid their lair
We head to the next area and hear the buckling gurgling sounds of the muddy flows of brown liquid earth that are part of this underground.
In the massive room we see a swirling pool of mud to the right and a large man made of stone is on the edge of the pool with strange creatures in flight above him and the pool . He reaches his huge hand into the liquid pool and scooping mug to the sky seems to be creating the little flitting flying things.
GUNDER comes in and says “ Nice work ,making Flibbits”
The stone man turns to us and CILNADRA gleefully casts BLINDING ASH into the room hoping to quell the FLIBBITS and create a choke point
The STone dude now comes towards us and with his massive Maul swings and strikes a massive blow to GUNDER obviously not impressed by his compliment.
GUNDER rolls a strength check holding his ground and not being forcefully knocked back by the swing
RAIKON attacks with magic missiles- pew pew!
ONYX attacks the massive man and scores a small chip
GUNDER issues a THUNDEROUS SMITE and hits hard smiting with 30
GUNDER takes another hit on the man
RAIKON shoots an acid arrow a bit of damage…
The flibbits are creepy little demons flitting and flying about one of them came by and tried to punch ONYX in the face with its almost comically cute little hands
Then next one flies up to ONYX and essentially vomits mud all over her getting into her armor and all over her skin which weighs her down and restrains her- those nasty flibbits!
GUNDER attempts to thunder smite and a flibbit upchucks more mud causing GUNDER to fall on his face- prone!
CILANDRA ELDRICH blasts and scores a critical hit!
GUNDER thud , boom, and ow! remains prone in a puddle of mudd ( lol)
RAIKON has had enough and decides it’s time for his mighty FIREBALL – pulls the pouch out from his robes and incants some magical words and emits a blinding light incinerating everything – flibbits- stone man- pow! Into a pile of rubble! – KILLLLLT!
“ It’s all fun and games until a flibbit pukes on you”
None of us took a mud nap!
