Stonehell: Who's Anish Kapoor?

Session 148 was played on 6/4

Eiric, Magic-User 8 (Kat)
Karl, Dwarf 8 (Julia)
Boris, Cleric 5 (Jeff)
Morgana, Mage 5 (Robert)

Wanting to finish off the map to the area around the Temple of Pain, and explore the cave off the weird fog filled chasm, the party gears up and heads into the dungeon. Avoiding the rust monsters, Karl uses a potion of flying, and makes it over to the cave mouth. Not seeing anything immediately threatening, he tosses back a rope, and then begins to explore. 

Turns out there isn’t much to explore. An old cave, signs that it’s been used as an animal roost, adventurer’s camp, and at some point someone installed a black stone devil’s face about 4’ tall. Karl carefully checks it out, and gently removes the mortar holding it to the wall. On the back, in elvish script is written “By admiring this artwork, you confirm that you are not Anish Kapoor, you are in no way affiliated to Anish Kapoor, you are not admiring this on behalf of Anish Kapoor or an associate of Anish Kapoor. To the best of your knowledge, information and belief this artwork will not make its way into the hands of Anish Kapoor.’

What a weird curse…

Hefting the stone face out of the cave and then back to town, they sell it for 400gp. To the best of their knowledge, it hasn’t made its way into the hands of Anish Kapoor.

Heading immediately back to the dungeon, they continue to explore around the halls of the Gentlemen and Lady Ghouls, but avoid their home. Instead they encounter oozes. Thankfully the oozes had, or at least were around, treasure.

Gains: various coins, a few gems, and a stone devil’s face.
Kills: Oozes

Sometimes, you just have to toss in silly things into your dungeon, just to make it your own.
