A few reminders , the next game will be the Monday the 9th of December not the 10th as I’m away.
It was also mentioned about a board game night between Christmas and new year , maybe a game of relic and Pathfinder cards on the 28th December ?
Also – Darren was correct I rechecked the rules via the inter webs today , and he gets his 4 charisma back and a hero point.
Hero point awards got Phil for some bad luck on the dice J Danny for using the staff to disperse the fog very clever , Darren for pure own age , John for the most amount of crits I’ve seen in one fight !
Ok back to the update:
They hear the voice of Mokmurian , he must now go to the surface and get his army in order, damn Conna the wise and her interfering , Eando unlocks the door and Durgen peers in to the room.
This vast chamber might have once been a lecture hall, but now the place is empty of furniture. Six five-foot-wide pillars, each carved with spiraling patterns of runes, rise up to support the hundred foot- high ceiling. Spread through the hall in neatly organized stacks and piles are arcane trappings, candles, books, scrolls, knives, and bundles of powders and ingredients-the entire place looks like an arcanist’s laboratory or storeroom. At the west end of the room, a wide flight of stairs rises up to a stone door in the wall, just north of a twenty foot- wide stage. Here sits a large mound of furs, an immense chair, and a table stacked high with more book and scrolls. An ironbound chest sits under the table against the far wall.
As Eando enters he finds some pressure pads on the floor , disarming a few he finds himself , suddenly a thick solid fog appears around him , barely able to move he struck by a huge bolt of lightning . the others can’t see this, but in the mean time another poisonous fog erupts around Corik , using his enchanted staff he summons a wind to blow them both away and it works.
Bris and Durgen charge the 2 Lamia Priestess`s , with most of the healing gone , it’s do or die. It’s another close one but Eando and Durgen survive… just.
Once the Lamias are dead , they hear the deep voice of Mokmurian, “come join me , up top humans !” – “Lucky for you I have to organize my army for our lord!, but lucky for you I am patient enough to keep you alive, your death will be even”
The Lamia Priestess suddenly re animates , an ancient and sibilant voice hisses
“So these are the heroes of the age. More like gasping worms to me-worms to be crushed back into the earth when I awaken the armies of Xin Shalast, when the name Karzoug is again spoken with fear and awe. Know that the deaths of those marked by the Sihedron-the giants and all the creatures you have so conveniently slain for me-hasten my return, just as yours soon will. Fools, all of you. Is this all you could manage in ten thousand years?” he cackles and the voice fade,,,
Eando finds a map amongst some papers and it reads in giant :
“Hellfire Flume ruins-foundation stones from each would know where the traitor Xaliasa dwelt, and perhaps where he hid his key to Runeforge.”
Bris leaves to look in the library and check out the three interesting leads Xin shalast, Karzoug , Who this Xaialisa is and the runeforge ? But again the librarian doesn’t seem to understand him! Maybe more time is to be spent here ? Bris hears 2 squads of Giants and Ogres setting up camp in the library , but making no move to attack.
Meanwhile the other companions enter Mokmurians Room , a relatively impressive collection of loot remains here as his personal wealth. Apart from his impress I’ve collection of books on spell craft and all of the sp ell components and laboratory equipment scattered throughout the room (which is worth a collected total of 1,500 gp, but weighs several hundred pounds), the chest under his desk contains the bulk of his remaining wealth, including 12,ooo gp, 1,100 pp, an amber and sapphire necklace worth 4,ooo g p , a set of ivory rune stone s worth 1,400gp .
In addition, scattered among the stacks of Mokmurian’s invasion plan s , battle tactics, and research notes is a single piece of paper depicting a map of the Lost Coast region of Varisia
Also in the room is a teleporter , working out how to use it they find themselves in a tower, as Bris and Eando make their way down from below they hear ice giants talking about how the great mokmurian has appeared to crush the rebellion lead by his mother Conna the wise, they are feeding beasts and then depart , they see 6 Sarcophagi , with ancient pictures and runes , these are the remains of the ancient thassilon monks who once owned this library . The undead hunter Bris knows he must slay these evil creatures , sent mad by karzoug many thousands of years ago , Bris and Eando attack a monk in its tomb, it escapes just and which now floats infront of them, then the 5 other lids explode outwards and 5 monks rise eerily from their tombs with healing all but gone it’s looking bleak for our heroes!
