Rappan Athuk: Borumar gives a hand

Session was played on 2/13/23

Nick, Fighter 7 (Me)
Borumar, ½ Orc Fighter (Josh)
Blotto, Goblin (Lanse)
Morgana, Magic User (Rob)
Koltic, Cleric 7 (NPC)
Aroon, Fighter 5 (NPC)
Jameth, Fighter 5 (NPC)
Lor’Koth, Dwarf 5 (NPC)
Lt. Marthek, Fighter (NPC)

Emerging from the tunnels into a large room with a pool filling much of it, the party is attacked by some wraiths, that Koltic easily turns, and then by a trio of displacer beasts that quickly appear to be over a dozen! Combat is insanely unproductive as illusionary beasts keep being dispelled while the real ones keep doing some damage…. Until they run away…

As a Beholder drops from the ceiling above the pool!! Everyone runs in terror, and Morgana tosses a fireball at it, praying the central eye isn’t looking. It goes off with a bigger than expected BOOM, leaving nothing behind.

At the far end of the room is a steep cliff, and at the bottom are chunks of gold! Borumar quickly sets up some ropes, and heads down. On the far wall at the bottom of the cliff are 3 holes, each with a lever inside. As Lor’Koth begins picking out the biggest chunks of gold to collect, Borumar reaches into the middle hole, and grabs the level, and his hand is cut off. The screaming is loud, but Koltic at least stops the bleeding, even if he can’t replace the hand right away. Nick tests the left hole with his 10’ pole, and the end of it is chopped off. He then fashions a loop of rope on the end to grab the lever on the right, which opens a door in the wall.

Morgana uses her headband to check down the passage which opens up into a room with 4 brass statues. She uses DIspel Magic, which makes the statues grumpy, but also kills the illusion on the gold rocks. Not wanting to crawl back through the tunnels, Morgana uses her teleportation ritual to get everyone home.

Kills: displacer beast, blast spore
