Elemental Evil

02-11-17 - THE END
the one where the true protagonist is revealed
  • Finished out earth node
  • Encountered a duergar ghost & 4 drow specters. Ghost “accidentally” aged Doran and Roan (30 yrs, later took a potion to remove 12 of them). Defeated the specters, told ghost we would aid him in putting is soul to rest by returning the crown that was stolen from a dwarven king’s burial. Doran wore the fancy helm.
  • fought an elemental myrmidon and some mud mephits – Roan finally got to use his volley fire effectively
  • freed the last Mirabar delegate from forced labor after intimidating the guards to learn where the earth prophet was.
  • Thea picked up some crazy cursed armor, executed random gnothics under its influence in the next room
    – used Dust of Disappearance on party for positioning, Thea took potion of Speed, Roan took potion of Heroism, Doran took potion of Hill Giant strength, Seeker Hasted Doran & Roan.
    - Thea’s animate objects + Roan’s 4 arrows (one of which crit for 39!), and a blast or two from Seeker annihilated the prophet before he could move.
    - Doran dashed in invisible and grabbed the mcguffin. But WAIT THE GOD CAN SENSE INVISIBLE. Of course he can!
    - God moves and pounds Doran like a beast
    - Izz’t dives toward Doran, Seeker projects to him to pass the mcguffin. Doran tosses it up in the air (rendering it visible), Izz’t grabs it and flies straight into the portal….
    - …which sends Ogremach (I’m sure it’s spelled just like it sounds) back into his realm and triggers and earthquake which destroys the room.
    - party then cleans up the remaining two nodes and destroys the last weapons off camera, because anything else would be post-anti-climactic? anti-post-climactic? Plus it was almost 130am.
01-13-17 - Earth temple part I
the one where they wrestled an elf
  • Entered depths of earth temple.
  • fought guards and earth elementals (spawned on Roan)
  • scared off a Xorn and killed its cultist friend
  • fought grappler thing (it grappled and critically bit Roan)
  • Thea got confused, Roan and Seeker restrained her until it passed
  • LOOT : Ring of Swimming
12-10-16 - Fire temple finale
the one with counterspells
  • Defeated (young?) red dragon
  • defeated fire prophet – Thea boxed her and her giant fire monster under a sphere of force, she fled into the lava and we took potshots at her as she did the same. Imp fished artifact weapon out of the lava.
11-19-16 - fire temple level 3
giants, skulls, salamanders and a ...
  • Descended into the 3rd level under cloak of silent image illusion
  • Theo took out one guard with watery orb while Roan pincushioned him with arrows for the rest of the fight – he lasted the longest of the guards, weirdly.
  • Seeker hit the fire giant & guard with slow to reduce the damage
  • Doran took out the fire giant, after taking a pretty serious beating. Seeker took some of the giant’s fireproof beard, after not taking a beating. May also have taken an eyeball?
  • short rested in that room
  • Next room was filled with poisons and skulls, and then prisoners trapped in a hole surrounded by ring of fire on the other side
  • seeker ran through and dispelled the ring of fire, terminated one of the prisoners (a water cultist) without telling the rest of the party, kept the prisoners company while Thea dug out a hole in the ceiling so the gasses could vent. Prisoners were then escorted to upper level and given a map??
  • next room was salamanders, which Thea squished under a wall of force. Killed a few of them, rest swam away
  • next room was a few tough cultists and beyond that….a dragon!
  • * Seeker found the dragon with familiar, did not notify the rest of the party until after battle with cultists – at that point he led them back to the giant room and relayed the information at a safe distance.
