Having survived our epic battle in the crypt against a number of rather rude Undead foes, not to mention some particularly viscous doors we set out for our next challenge. Alas this foe, another set of doors in alliance with a 10 × 20 room was almost too much for us to overcome. Finally after some amateur thievery and a lot of shouting at the door by Zar we managed to get into the main chamber.
The floor of the main chamber was inlaid with a horrible sun motif, kind of like that weird Jimmy Dean breakfast commercial guy, he really creeps me out. Thankfully our foe was another undead instead of that guy, whew that was close. Here is where things got a little hazy for Liam. Now I admit I did imbibe quite a bit during our short rest, come to think it that may explain his failure to spot those traps at the door and his missing his first three shots. Where was I, oh yeah in the middle of the battle that double dwarf/half giant fella Ganath attacks me. Treachery, I knew we shouldn’t have trusted that guy when he just showed up in the middle of our journey. Oh he claimed that we was under the influence of the Undead creature but when he crited me for the second time I began to take notice of his odd behavior. We managed to defeat the creature only to see him reappear moments later with another devastating attack. Don’t think I didn’t see you slip him that healing fruit Ganath, I have my eye on you.
Finally victory was ours and we goods from House Menards, where you always save more money. After searching through the remains of our undead foe our expert appraiser Liam determined that we found a worthless circlet of silver and a mighty amber necklace pretty sweet loot.
Liam managed to make some use of his experience with thievery to make off with the metal doors as well as the goods we were hired to retrieve. Luckily we were not surprised by yet another ambush outside the cave. Whoever is trying to kill us must be getting desperate as they hired a group of Shadowrunners (Trolls, Elves, Human) to attack us. We were doing fine until a mage appeared perched above the cave entrance launching deadly AOE’s. Alas this proved his undoing as Bynn scrambled up and pushed him off the edge, crashing to the ground below. Liam, remembering the example of his Uncle Dick Cheney, shot the Mage in the face and we soon prevailed.
All that remained was to return the goods to Alterac. I just assumed that we would just bypass Captain Galvanger and run right to the Frostwolf relief hut but apparently that strategy has been nerfed, thanks Blizzard. Anyways on the way back our skiffs got attacked by the giant plant from The Rocky Horror Picture Show, although I slept through much of this fight. When I finally awoke I found the Halflings skiff runners basting a sleeping Zar while eagerly licking their lips. I was able to run off the plucky scamps with the promise that Zar would taste much better after some more dry aging. Soon the plant we defeated and we had a nice salad before going back to bed.
Fiber from veggies is very important for adventurers if you want to remain regular, knowing that a good bowel movement is the key to a good day. And knowing is half the battle.
