PostSubject: A Magic Users Tale 8   Mon 23 Jun - 9:46:42

A Magic Users tale. 21st June 2008

We approached the golden spired temple from the east, eager to find our answers. Would we find the elusive Devro here? Or any more evidence of Allerzoi activity? We circled the building anti clockwise locating an entrance on the south side. We moved up stairs into the gloom, coming upon a great pair of apparently impassable bronze doors. We scouted east and our bold monk was attacked by a great lizard that darted out from concealment. The party soon had it kebabed, though our trusty war dogs were actually key players for the first of many occasions.

We decided to split up at this point. Although it was more a case of, ‘well we can’t be much help here, we’ll have a look around whilst the boys play with their new lizard friend’. Thorri, Roscoe, Gordon and I intrepidly checked out the other direction. The halfling was just checking a narrow broken down section of wall, typical of the place, when an owlbear appeared from nowhere and attacked.

We rushed to his defence, I firing off my magic missile, a modest contribution, but all my frustratingly limited talents would allow. We dealt with it eventually, narrowly avoiding serious injury, greatly aided once more by the war dogs. We found a useful looking mace and gold and we were rejoined by the others, who had discovered but not investigated a strange statue.

Whilst we of the magical persuasion recharged so to speak, Roscoe, Thorri, Calendereil and Gordon checked unexplored areas to the north, coming upon a black suit of armour that animated and attacked to no one’s great surprise. Again the war dog finished the fight, whilst the halfling spent most of the engagement scouting. A further statue, this one 40’ high with built in staircases was discovered, but no one fancied closer examination.

Instead they returned to some previously by-passed doors and checking on of them, discovered a hideous undead creature, a wight. They struggled with it, but our weapons were ineffective unless magical, then, the unthinkable, its icy touch drained the life from Draegon, and he stood against us, undead, a wight. We slew his creator, but this just made Draegon stronger and the elf fell sorely hurt, and drained of his magical abilities, (slight though they were). Eventually the monster that Draegon had become was overcome, but it was a close run thing. What’s more, there was nothing but a lousy coffin in the room. Zionestes raised the dead Ranger using our precious scroll, but he was clearly out of action for some time to come.

Looking for fresh pickings, we discovered four zombies, these were easily turned by Gordon and slain, including one by Zionestes using his mace. It turned to dust in an instant. If only he had tried that earlier against the wight! We left Draegon with the monk, gnome and elf and entered the heart of the temple, a great hall. As we crossed it, beautiful singing began, entrancing Gordon and Thomas, who attacked Thorri and I.

I was injured and the singing harpy swooped down to attack us. I hit it with a magic missile and the cleric managed to hold Thomas with an enchantment. Gordon struck down Thorri who needed urgent healing from our cleric and it looked bad for a few moments. The halfling opened fire on the harpy with a snatched up crossbow and incredibly managed three hits on it, the last of which brought it down as it tried to flee.

Gordon, gathering up booty foremost in his mind, picked up some spears and shields that adorned the walls, and made the unhappy discovery that one of these is a cursed missile attractor. With the spear, you might say that he now has a matching set. Still, at least he won’t leave them behind on the bus or anything.

I remained to look after Draegon whilst the others went on to check the next room which contained a pool. From it emerged a swarm of tentacles, catching first the halfling scout, then Gordon and Zionestes as they rushed to his aid. Zionestes was almost constricted, though Gordon with his great strength was able to resist it to a point. Eventually and five tentacles down, the octopoid departed in a blast of ink, leaving us bloodied and somewhat battered.
