Rappan Athuk: Back to the Inner Cloister
Session was played on 8/9
Nick, Fighter 7 (Me)
Borumar, Thief 9 (Josh) & Fido
Morgana, Magic User 8 (Rob)
Koltic, Cleric 6 (NPC)
Returning to the outer cloister, they check in with Bill. He reports that 6 of his fellow cultists priests were killed checking out the inner cloister. Apparently there are more of the invisible stalkers. They head to deal with them. A big puddle was near the door. Borumar used his force bow on it, to no apparent effect. Morgana crits with her dagger, and then a ‘running’ battle was on with the ooze. Thankfully it was very slow, and the party stayed well out of reach of it until they killed it.
Back to the inner courtyard, they find the bodies of the cultists, torn apart. Checking the bodies, Koltic is grabbed by an invisible foe, and hoisted up. Morgana uses magic missiles on it, and it drops Koltic to flee.
More searching around the inner cloister, an encounter with a gelatinous cube, then another hit and run from the invisible stalker. Nick gets the worst of it. The party makes its way to the observatory where a fancy silver cross, shiny suit of chainmail, and a spyglass are recovered. Taking their loot, the party heads back to town.
Gains: 700gp for spyglass, Chainmail +1, Silver Cross of St. Yara
