Combat Map - Turn 46

Almost Done

We are almost finished with this portion of the adventure. I expect only two or three more turns. Once we are finished, I will send out chronicle sheets. They will earn you 3 XP, 4 PP and 1536 GP.

That means that you will need to level up to 3rd. In addition to the normal things you get for leveling, do not forget to add 3 charges to your wand of cure light wounds provided from the Temple of Erastil on the first chronicle sheet.

If anyone wants to bow out of the game, this is the time to do so.

Once I receive all of the updated characters, we can begin the third portion of the module, The Festering Blot.

Ro-Mahn rushed forward and past the goblin nearest the door to engage the bugbear. The rogue stabbed with his rapier and dealt 19 damage. Washesh moved in and attacked the goblin to the north with his longsword. The blow landed dealing 8 damage and dropped the monster. Cando moved through the gate and attacked the goblin straight ahead. The half-orc swung his double-axe and landed a blow that dealt 10 damage and dropped the monster.

The goblin rider maneuvered around Wahesh and jumped from his mount. Both monsters attacked the fighter but neither managed to score a hit.

Barnacleez moved to the open gate and targeted the bugbear with his wand of Magic Missiles. The spell streaked from the wand and hit the monster for 3 damage. The unarmed Nixa attempted to attack the bugbear but missed. She received a nasty slash from the monster’s falchion that dealt 10 damage. The fighter retreated deeper within the cage to regroup.

The remaining goblin moved to attack Wahesh but it missed.

Stabem moved through the gate and engaged the goblin rider. The halfling struck with his rapier and dealt 3 damage.

With a bellow of rage, the bugbear called down the power of his dark god, Lamashtu, and channeled negative energy. Nixa, Wahesh, Stabem and Cando suffered 5 damage each while Ro-Mahn took only 2 damage. The monster stepped away from Ro-Mahn, back toward a tunnel.

Lady Emyralda moved through the gate and cast a Bless spell.

Barnacleez and Lou G’Boo returned to the party and filled them in on what the monkey had seen. Cando cast Cure Light Wounds upon himself, healing himself to full.

Realizing that the human woman might be Nolaria’s missing cousin, Nixa Volsetti, and that time was of the essence, Wahesh opened the gate to confront the monsters and stepped into the opening.

The large monster near the cage turned out to be a fiendish bugbear. It was ranting in common “it is all your fault” as it strangled a human woman. Opening the gate caused enough of a distraction for the woman to break the monster’s grasp. Upon seeing the party she called out hoarsely, “Quickly, kill them all! They plan to bring death or worse to Sarringallow and us all.”

Bellowing in rage, the goblinoids joined the battle.

While the rest of the party formed up around the gate, Barnacleez moved to the north and cast Speak with Animals. The gnome instructed Lou G’Boo to climb the fence and survey what was on the other side. The monkey scampered up and over to take a look.

Lou G’Boo quickly returned to give her report. She saw three smaller creatures like the ones you just fought, another on one of the dog things and a larger creature covered in purple growths.

The walls and ceiling here are covered with innumerable crude paintings, all depicting goblinoid figures engaged in all manner of violent acts. Two large metal cages occupy the north and west walls. The door to one of these cages lies torn from its hinges on the floor. The larger creature stands before the opening holding a human woman by the neck while violently squeezing and shouting.
