Events

Breaking and Entering

Rosencrantz and Baelfjord broke into Geoffrey Diamonds' place while drunk, and ran into his basement to kill a wraith he had as a security device and for questioning. They did so, but not before Rosencrantz was again level drained by the same wraith. They also killed two squishybabies :(

Delving

We were split up into three strike teams: Team Sneaky Halflings (And Sometimes Goblins) lead by Bob snuck around to check out potentially dangerous things; Team Newbie 2.0 under direction of Geoffrey Diamonds filled the front rank with shields and spears and high AC to take the brunt of the damage; and the Main Party (team strike force?) led by Mumblefluff, who shot missiles and slayed all the things.

We decided to take the scenic route to the Fortress level, which actually turned out okay except for when we faced those fear demons and almost everyone failed their saves was frozen in terror. We ended up checking out the area where Jebjick the Heretic was captured, and found the great treasure that he had previously made mention of. Then we went a little deeper (JOMR)… and encountered the lair of some kind of giant boring creature (as in it makes tunnels, not that it is uninteresting. A creature that makes 20-foot wide tunnels is probably quite interesting!). We didn't encounter whatever creature made the huge tunnels, but there were some quite grotesque statues that kept moving towards us when we weren't looking that were trying not to breathe. We solved that conundrum for them though. Get it? Because slain monsters don't breathe. Also, Gate of the Moon is a great fucking spell and needs to be used more often.

Upon exiting the dungeon, Geoffrey Diamonds charmed Rosencrantz and made him swear oath on the spot he killed Oriabelle to help him get a new ghost.

Next Week

That chest that we just never seem to make it to, there are still known areas to clear out, and newly discovered ones to scour. Olbrectus is still around, too… And then there's that whole Not Dying thing (which is going pretty well right now, tbh).
