Stonehell: Lost Level: All About the Arachnids

Session 182 was played on 9/26

Morgana, Mage 8 (Reggie)
Karl, Dwarf 8 (Julia)
Darryl, Cleric (NPC)

Biffin takes the magic book to study for the next 6 weeks, and so is unavailable. Morgana, after successfully researching a new spell, wants to test it out on the (phase?) spiders the ogre actors told them about. Gathering up Karl and Darryl and hiring some meatshields they head to the lost level to fill in more of the map.

They kill a random cobra, find a room with an old dusty fancy suit of armor. They disassemble the armor and pack it up.

Onto the spiders, once the first one was in sight, and Morgana confirmed that it was indeed a phase spider, she cast her Dimensional Anchor spell, locking it in this phase. Confirmation of the success of the spell came as the spider began to scream and yell at the party. Morgana was shocked to hear them speak and threaten the party for this unprovoked act of aggression. Morgana reassures the spiders that the effect will wear off. She leaves 10gp for them. Karl leaves some candy.

Passing back by the ogres, they get roped into chatting with them about the play. Karl asks them for their autographs. They prick their fingers to sign a page from the script.

The next set of rooms they explore were inhabited by more arachnids, this time by 3 (unintelligent) giant scorpions. In the battle Darryl gets poisoned, the 3 hirelings all die, and Morgana gets badly clawed. Darryl is saved with some antivenom, but the hirelings are beyond saving. Morgana collects the venom sacks from the tails. The party returns to town.

Gains: venom sacks (traded for antivenom)
Kills: giant scorpions
Losses: 3 sellswords
