Rappan Athuk: Through the Front Door

Session was played on 12/26/22

Nick, Fighter 7 (Me)
Borumar ½ Orc Thief 9 (Josh) & Fido
Koltic, Cleric 7 (NPC)
Aroon, Fighter 5 (NPC)
Jameth, Fighter 5 (NPC)
Lor’Koth, Dwarf 5 (NPC)

At the graveyard, the main tomb has 8 gargoyles perched on it. The party pops over to the dwarven statue to get the key, then head for the door. The gargoyles attack, succeed in grabbing Koltic, pulling him up into the air, the gargoyle is killed, but then Koltic is dropped down hard. Using the key, the party rushes in and closes the door behind them. Down the passage, past some bone piles through the viewing room, ants room, Borumar gets poisoned by some playing cards that were left scattered about, and he had to collect. They avoid a pit trap, heading north toward an empty cavern. There’s some weird gurgling noises, the party searches around and finds a secret door. The “friendly” ghast gets a little too personal with Koltic, but some decent treasure is recovered.

In a larger cavern a pristine toilet is too much for Borumar to resist, but sadly, and predictably it turned out to be a mimic. Nick pulls him off the toilet-mimic, and they run from it down some stairs.

At the bottom of the stairs is a long room with blood stains, a bunch of dead rats and one dead halfling. The door to the north is covered in scratches and has a hatchet buried in it. A key sits unturned in the lock.

Gains: gold and silver coins, poisoned playing cards.
Kills: ghast, gargoyles
