Few things I forget from last session:
1) Due to her skill at proactively defending herself from ogres, Joan’s new name is “Joan the Ogre Slayer”
2) The little imp that keeps looking for the strongest creature has been informed that there is apparently a magma dragon somewhere on this level. This won’t have any consequences…
3) Vord’s lair has been consecrated to Law (thanks to Sherry) and the party is using it as a base of sorts
Back to the present:
The party geared up the former slaves, I mean adjunct party members (and I thought adjunct professors were treated poorly…), and explored around level 6 a bit more.
Upon locating a room that contained twenty diamonds just lying openly on the floor, the party wisely choose to toss in a rock before entering the room. This attracted the attention of the giant manta-ray-esque monster that lived on the ceiling to drop down and attack. Instead of engulfing and eating a party member, it got hacked to bits and dumped into the lava.
The party considered letting it live and trying to lure enemies in there to be eaten by the manta-ray-esque monster, but, as mentioned. I’m not sure if this was a genius idea or not.
Free diamonds for all! Take that De Beers!
They found some secret passages in that room and starting working their way through some hallways. The noise they made attracted the attention of one of the lesser demons that lives here and a pitched battle began between the demons and the party.
Despite have single digit hp, no shield, and mediocre armor, Kindrella bravely ran to the front of the group and attacked the demons with a two-handed axe. Both of her arms were promptly crushed. However, the rest of the party emerged victorious and went to town to level up / heal / drop off Kindrella at the retirement home for injured adventurers.
The party still has not betrayed the lava men. I am in shock! But there is always next week…
Never underestimate the bloodthirstiness of the party.
Remembering the Fallen
None… this time.
