Notes from 5/31/18 - Me and my [evil] shadow

Postby Caelesti » Thu May 31, 2018 9:34 pm

The party worked their way down the stairs; the chanting got louder. The stairs ended at a room with 13 niches. Chanting filled the room, "he is the ancient; he is the land". The party searched the niches, finding: a small mummified hand (a goblin's), a knife carved from a human bone, a dagger with a rat's skull in the pommel, an 8" varnished orb made from a nothic's eye; an aspergillium carved from a bone, a folded cloak made from ghoul skin, a desiccated frog lashed to a stick, a bag bat guano, a hag's severed finger, a 6" tall wooden figurine of a mummy, an iron pendant adorned with a devil's face, a shrunken head of a halfling, a small wood coffer containing a dire wolf's withered tongue, and a desiccated liver.

One corridor out of the room ended in water (with chanting beyond); the other went to a prison area. In the prison area, one set of rusty shackles held a skeleton in black robes; the skeleton had a gold ring. A secret door out of the prison area. Peeking through the secret door revealed a pool-like area. A walkway surrounded the edge; an island with an altar was in the pool.

Orpheus lept to the island and climbed the stairs to the altar. Thirteen apparitions appeared on the ledge and began chanting, "one must die". The altar seemed to have dried blood on it. Belle deftly lured a rat to its death on the altar. The apparitions returned to their previous chant.

Leaving the island, Orpheus fell into the water; it was very deep, so he climbed out.
The party returned to the previous floor. They followed a new corridor to a room with a statue. Brandt touched a cloak and animated shadows attacked.

Belle struck a shadow with her silvered hammer.
Brandt struck one twice.
A shadow touched Calder, weakening him; another touched Belle.
Calder cast Magic Missiles at a damaged one; it winked out.

Belle missed.
Brandt struck one.
Shadows touched Brandt, Orpheus, and Belle .. dropping Orpheus and Belle.
Calder cast Magic Missiles at one; another winked out.

Brandt struck a new one.
The shadows drained Orpheus and Belle.
Calder cast Fire Bolt at a shadow, missing.

Brandt missed.
Shadows drained Calder, Orpheus, and Belle.

Brandt struck one down.
Calder missed with a Fire Bolt.

Brandt struck another down.
Calder missed.

Belle stabilized.
Brandt struck one.
Calder missed.
Orpheus died.

Brandt missed.
Calder winked out the last shadow with a Fire Bolt.

Kili was out of cures already by that point. Sigh.
At least Kili would have been one more target to absorb damage.

Kili will leave no turn unstoned until Orpheus is with us once more.
