GoM: The Festering Blot - GM Turn Post 18

The floor, walls, pillars, and fireplaces of this majestic ballroom are all made of polished marble. On the north side of the room, a grand staircase with divided flights leads up to a balcony overlooking the ballroom floor. An angel of black marble is standing menacingly on a platform behind the middle landing of the staircase.

As the party enters the room, a giant fiendish centipede rears up just west of the staircase.

A search of the kitchen revealed little of value. The one thing that was discovered was a 5-pound keg of salt.

After a brief discussion, the party decided to finish investigating the first floor before descending into the basement. The western door was chosen as the next one to explore.

Ro-Mahn and Stabem did their rounds and checked all the doors for locks and traps. They did not discover any. The door to the southwest was ajar and revealed an abandoned pantry beyond.

Once assured it was safe to proceed, the party decided to explore the door to the north.

Ro-Mahn and Barnacleez worked on deciphering the journal from the boy’s grave. After close to an hour of study, the pair gleaned what information that the book still contained.

The journal recounted the adventures of Marcius Sarini in Sargava as a young officer. The book narrated interactions with Sargavans and bloody skirmishes with monsters. During his time abroad, Marcius befriended many locals and learned much about the traps and poisonous plants they used for hunting. He also met a brilliant woman named Eshebe, who had a son not quite a year after she and Marcius became acquainted. The final part of the book discussed hunting trips, including a successful manticore hunt and a plan to kill a chimera, but the ending of the story is missing.

Lady Emyralda recognized the gold disk as a holy symbol of Aroden.

Once done at the crypt, the party moved back through the garden to the eastern entrance of the manor house.
