D&D 2e Game Day 3-22-09
One month to the day after we left off our 2e D&D group returned to the game. The month long hiatus was due to a job schedule change for our DM.
The lawful/good characters, including Nevets, dashed down the stairs that were revealed last session. Entering the chamber the characters discover members missing from the party before Nevets joined up bound and chained to the walls. Also in the room are the obviously tortured remains of Nevets party. Along the wall are various religious symbols including that of his Diety, Jahwei. Two trolls, three ogres and four drow were fighting over the spoils in the center of the room.
Bawb, the militant wizard dwarf who was rescued in the last room went invisible and began to free the captive PCs. Sir Gallahad, noticing that his Diety’s symbol had been desecrated charged into the midst of the fighting monsters with a battle cry. Hawrayn stood back and threw stars from his robe of stars and hit the ogres. Nevets not having a long-range weapon followed Sir Gallahad and began attacking drow. After freeing the captives, Bawb cast fireball on the two trolls. Meanwhile our Kender, Rayne, began stuffing the loot into her coat of many pockets.
After the trolls ignited, Bawb cast another fireball. The party seeing what was happening made sure the rescued characters were right behind us and we evacuated. Nevets grabbed all the religious icons and the party made it out just as the trolls erupted in a humongous fireball that consumed everything in the room.
Heading back upstairs, the party took time to heal and go through the treasure retrieved by Rayne. Nevets received back the bow carried by his party’s archer. The party entered the next room to discover 10 drow waiting for them and three Pedapelps. The drow attacked as soon as we entered the room.
Rayne, our Kendar, decided to change clothes in the middle of the battle. At this point the DMs dice began to fail him. The DM decided to roll to see if one of the drow had been mesmerized by Rayne’s striptease. Our female Aquatic Elf asked if the drow fighting her was mesmerized as well. The DM rolled a critical miss on that and the drow were not only mesmerized but began to fight the fellow drow whenever they came near our females. Nevets cast enthrall over the drow as the rest of the party battled on. Nevets was successful. OOC I asked if Nevets successful enthrallment caused a permanent change in alignment. The DM and I rolled percentiles and I beat him. Our female characters now had bodyguards, Drow with permanent changes in alignment. Apparently the DM had decided that some of the drow in the room were in fact dragon riders. He asked all of our ladies to roll percentiles, each beat him. Not only do our ladies have bodyguards but the bodyguards each have dragons. By this point the DM is pulling out his hair. Meanwhile the rest of the enthralled drow vacated the room just as Nevets used his new bow and enchanted bow string to deal with the pedipelps.
All of this overshadowed the emergence of a specialized monkey. The monkey was designed between myself and the DM in an effort to teach one of the players a lesson. More on the monkey later. As we shut down for the night, the party was introducing themselves to the new members of our party.
