Here is the full party:
James Blaylock = Elven Ranger PC
Exardell = Mystic PC
Duffles the Unfortunate = Mage PC
Joan = Fighter NPC
Perry = NPC Thief
Sherry = NPC Cleric
Broon the Smart Hobgoblin = Hobgoblin NPC who carries a torch / manages finances
Hans = Fighter PC (player is unable to join for a while, so he is sitting at the tavern and visiting the horribly wounded former adventurers)
With a couple new party members, our intrepid adventurers decided to get vengeance on the medusa and perhaps bring one of the two stoned characters.
Somehow, they succeeded! Explosive crystals and blind-firing phasers brought victory.
No one got turned to stone, but James Blaylock lost three fingers on one hand to a well-placed crossbow bolt, which means that hand is useless. Luckily, the party has plenty of phasers from level 3 and those can be used one-handed!
To keep themselves safe while looting her cave, they covered the medusa’s head with a bag, like a hideous one-night stand partner. Exardell found an amulet that will impress people and make them think he is more important that he really is.
This will not be used and abused; not at all!
The party had one scroll to use that could restore a person to life. Niblog the Assassin? Or Glevina the Elven Ranger?
With no argument or discussion, Glevina was brought back to life! The longest-serving NPC is back in action. Poor Niblog.
After stopping the last few cultists from living (and rescuing some prisoners) the party took their accumulated treasure and went back to town. They finally showed the town that they had the magic sword and stuck into an altar in the church to purge the nearby countryside of demons. The town wished to keep the sword there, so that the demons would never return, but Exardell used the power of the recently-acquired amulet to convince them to let him keep the sword for a wee bit longer. He totally promised to return it to them.
Onward to level 6!
The entire level is suspended over a sea of lava and fire-themed monsters abound! The party ran into some “Lava Men”, which they killed (after a thorough examination of the picture I used for them in Roll 20) before ending the session. Before they died, the Lava Men called out to their brethern to secure “the temple”. What will happen next time?
Making the Lava Men handsome may have been a mistake.
Remembering the Fallen
None… this time.
