Stonehell: Protomatter Pool

Session 70 was played on 6/16

Eiric, wizard 7 (Kat)
- men at arms (Alias the Elf, Cromwell)
- linkmen (Baldash “Dash”)
- Neon (dog)
Brie, wizard 4 (Apprentice to Eiric)
A-A-Ron, Thief 6 (Henchman)
Daryll, Cleric 6 (Henchman)
Orpheus, Human Fighter 6 (Henchman)
Karl, Dwarf 7 (Julia)
- Hobart (dog)
- men at arms (Scar, GoMat, Tal)
Lex the Cheeseman, Fighter 4 (Henchman)
Koltic, Cleric 3 (Chris)

Beyond the hall of wizard portraits is a magically locked door, and one that was more powerful than Eiric could handle at this point. She decided to try something new... She and Brie would cast Knock together! As the spell took hold, the door resisted at first, but then clicked open. Within the cross shaped chamber was a triangular pool of greyish gently bubbling liquid. Karl and Koltic go on to investigate, while everyone else stays outside. Karl pokes the liquid with his 10’ pole, and then flings some of the goo at Scar, who cries. Eiric collects a sample of the goo.

From down the hall come rattling 6 ape-like skeleton creatures… they’re more resist Darryl’s and Koltic’s turning attempts than regular skeletons, and 2 of them charge into the party. Lex drops the first, while Orpheus and Darryl drop the second.

Deciding they’ve explored enough, they head back. On level 1, in the hall of statues, a group of warty goblins cowers at the back of the hall. The party decides it isn’t even worth their time, and they leave the room. Then a goblin shouts “Yeah, that’s right! Run from the Chosen of Zunbar.”

“Oh hell no” Eiric replies and Karl and Orpheus charge in and grab one goblin, and drag him out before Eiric tosses a fireball into the room, damaging many of the statues and killing all of the goblins. Lubnuz the Goblin, while peeing himself, explanes that Zunbar has taken this tribe as his own, and mostly hangs out in the water cave. Brie, who speaks goblin, is assigned to watch over him.

Back in town, the vial of goo is identified by Feris the wizard as the protomater he was looking for. He needs 5 gallons before he’ll make the magic weapon. There’s some intense negotiation and it’s finally settled that he’ll make them a magic mace and dagger for 500gp and a 5 gallon container of protomater.

While in town, Lex parties, and ends up helping out a local magistrate.
A-A-Ron does… something, but won’t talk about it. His grin suggests it was successful though.
Orpheus buys out several of the neighbors so the orphanage can expand into a full cloister.
Brie and Darryl spend some time in the stacks researching. Lubnuz thinks it’s boring.

Gains: Protomatter
