Stonehell: Golems, Spiders, and Snakes

Session 39 was played on 6/13, and was the first session played over video chat.

Eiric, wizard 5 (Kat)
- torch bearers (Kali)
- men at arms (B, C, D)
- Namish (dog)
AARon, Thief 4 (Henchman)
Orpheus, Human Fighter 5 (Yann)
Matthias, Dwarf 5 (Julia)
- men at arms (Mordu, Nnnn, OOood, PP.)
- Herrick (dog)
Borumar Half Orc Fighter 4 (Josh)
Daryll (NPC Cleric 5)

In town, Matthias had some golden fabric fashioned into a golden pirate hat, while Borumar wore his bit as a bandana. Proudly wearing these, the party headed into the dungeon.

The head down through the Antechamber into the Asylum where the almost immediately hear singing! A party of Berzerkers is heading up toward the Korners. They wish the adventurers success and move on. The party continues along the hall toward the area to the south Without Doors. Just a bit down the hall, a trio of spiders sets upon the party, but they’re woefully outnumbered. In spite of this, one spider manages to know Matthias onto his ass with a pair of amazing critical hits!

Borumar pokes fun at Matthias, and the dwarf doesn’t take it well. Feeling his ego bruised, Matthias takes it out on Borumar. They scuffle, and Eiric threatens to turn this dungeon around if they don’t behave. They mumble that they’ll be good, and they continue on their way.

Turning out of the main central hall of this section they come to an abattoir, soaked in blood and guys. The 3 ghouls making the mess were repelled by Darryl who was having none of this, and the party jumped on them, killing them before they could even get in a swipe.

Across the hall was a dusty old sitting room, complete with a stopped grandfather clock. The next room was apparently some sort of workshop, long ago looted for anything of value. The hallway out was choked with webs. Returning to the sitting room, the party paused for a drink and a bite to eat. While taking a load off, a group of fairies popped their heads into the room from the hallway. The party was polite, but sent them on their way.

Getting that look in his eye, Matthias grabbed a bottle of powerthirst, and headed back to the webbed hallway, and lit it up! The smoke thankfully didn’t collect, as there weren’t any doors to block it, and the webs burned quickly. Once the flames were down, the party pressed on into a room with 10 rough wooden puppets each 4’ tall. Of course one of them was animated, and attacked. Few weapons hurt it, but the magic the party did have was enough to hack it apart. The rest of the puppets were knocked apart just in case. Borumar snagged an arm from the animated puppet.

Heading out of the puppet room, the party came to a hallway lined with small cells. Killing off some snakes and spider in the first 2 cells cut down the party’s number. Matthias’ strong dwarven constitution saved his life, but Mordu and Oood turned kind of purple and twitched for a while. Orpheus shined as he critted with his horned shield on a spider!

In the final cell, a ghost emerged, screaming in rage! Their moral shot, they ran not only from the quadrants, but from the dungeon.

Gains: arm of wood golem
Kills: Zombies, Ghouls, Wood Golem, Vipers,
Losses: Mordu, Oooodd
