Game Night 2-22-09
Two weeks ago I joined up with PIT #1s Sunday afternoon gaming group. I hadn’t played D&D since High School. The GM is my age and had been running this adventure for 6 teenagers for the past six months or so. My daughter invited me to come along. We rolled up Nevets Belin, a 3rd level, gnome, Fighter/Cleric. The PCs had already started the adventure when I joined. The DM decided that my character had been sent on the quest previously only to see my entire party wiped out by the first trap.
Nevets developed a fear of doors. I’ve played this up as we’ve continued through the dungeon. Nevets has his trusty mace and was given a Sun Sword by a Kender in the party.
Anyway we left it last time with the party just having defeated the Orcs in one of the rooms. I came home psyched about the game. PITs #2&3 wanted to play. I cleared it with the DM and brought them along this week.
Enter Bawb, the Militant Wizard Dwarf and Hawrayn, the Savage Wizard Half-Elf. While the boys were rolling out their characters, Nevets and the party stumbled across a 15th Level Goblin Mage and his class of Mage wannabes. The party attacked. Nevets cast a spell to make magic casting harder while the party battled the Goblins. The party wasn’t doing well as Nevets and the Goblin Mage cast another spell at the same time. The Mage cast Time Stop just as Nevets cast Sanctify. Nevets and the Mage were the only ones unaffected by Stop Time.
Nevets lunged at the Goblin Mage with his mace and Sun Sword, being ambidextrous he successfully attacked the Mage. However, the Mage cast a Fireball. Nevets went up like a marshmallow. Toasted to within 3 points of his life Nevets called a truce and asked the Mage what he wanted. The Mage replied he just wanted to get his students out. The DM admitted after the Mage left, that Nevets had battled him to within a point. Ah well, Nevets is a Lawful/Good and probably sensed that the Mage was near death.
The party entered the next room only to find it completely dark. Nevets cast a Fairie Light spell and revealed the antagonists in this room to be four Drow after the party dispatched the Drow we discovered Bawb and Hawrayn tied up in the room. This is when the main threat revealed itself, a Dryder. The whole party with the exception of Thief in the party worked together to defeat the menace. Hawrayn summoned bats and was quite happy with his new pets.
Last room for the day. While the party was dealing with living moss, Nevets was studying the red dragon rune in the floor and discovered that the scales were movable. After successfully figuring out the proper sequence, a spiral staircase was revealed in the floor. Screams of pain and anguish echoed up into the chamber. Every Lawful/Good character immediately ran towards the screams….
That’s where left off. Can’t wait for the next game.
