We get ready to place the items inside the blue circles…

… And there is a bright light from each of the circles. We appear to have caused a reaction. The items disappear and we wait to see what we have caused…

There are drakes.. this is not looking good!

We kill it (a magic missile finishing the damage!), after much trouble with chained Skeletons, and some of our party becoming badly injured and proceed through the fog…

I have received a message from a Sprite that they are trapped in a single room with no means of escape. I must save them – off to war again…

We are trapped in a room together. A better position no doubt, but we must find a way to escape. 2 days have passed, and nothing has happened, all our attempts to escape have failed.

Suddenly we are ‘joined’ by a Gnoll magically appearing. After discussion, we disappear and reappear….- We are surrounded by more Gnolls and may be in trouble now.

We start running through the hall of mirrored pillars, but the Gnolls follow and magic sparks from the pillars as we try to escape. 2 Gnolls disappear, but so does Gardain. We must defeat the enemy ourselves and hope that Gardain can survive in our previous prison.

The Gnolls go through fire, light, and freezing clouds, until the leader is attacked from behind by Ulf and in front by Dawn. With blood droping from his many wounds and pooling on the floor, I cast a fireball centred on him. He burns instantly and falls to the ground whilst Dawn protects herself from the heat.

Navah goes to the altar to return Gardain from his prison. He returns with one Gnoll, and the dead body of another. The gnolls who are left, leave in peace. and we are left in the pillared, mirrored hall…

A Quiet Day

The others have temporarily left me. I need to catch up on my reading and learn new skills, spells, and tasks. I ask them to leave me here, and they will return within a few days.

….

….

….

Where are they? They surely should have returned by now – will I have to find them…?

We have arrived at a great hall, with 5 pillars, and a well. The pillars have Minotaur faces carved into them and when we enter a voice booms in our heads.

A ghoul attacks Dawn as she enters the room and as we all approach the room a Phalagar’s tentacles reach from the floor and attack. As we are attacking the beasts a pair of Cavern Chokers descend from the ceiling and we are under attack from above, below and alongside!

We kill most of them but one of the chokers escapes into a far wall and we are left pondering whether my fire killed him before he disappeared.

We go through the doors in the east wall in search of the choker who tried to escape. We are promptly attacked by Gnolls with a Hyena pack, but make short work of them…!

Further exploration and we find a boar being held in a cage with Hyenas hungryily looking at it through the cage. As Dawn approaches the hyenas attack, and Dawn fires back at me in error. Whilst we attack the Hyenas some Gnolls attack with longbows from behind a straw barricade. I rush them and blast them with fire and frost. This is not sufficient, but my friends rescue me before the situation turns truely bad.

With Dawn and me bleading, it is clear we need to rest, so we go back to mess, barricade the doors and fall asleep for another night.

Update of situation

We had received a letter from a member of the Duergar group promising support and we set off to find the possible traitor, and move him to our cause. Probably a trap, and we will be wary…

… Having dealt with the trap!
A Bronze warder statue stands in front of us as we look up in awe.

3 scrolls we found –
“Despatch the adventurers – Paldamar”
“Wax Seal / Ornate ‘P’ – Blackfangs message for our deaths
Map of the Labryinth with directions to the Blackfangs (Gnolls) location

On return to the Seven-Pillared Hall it is clear that Aurora did successfully bring the slaves through here, as we are no longer wanted and even Brug almost tolerates us.

We continue beyond the Horned Hall, and Dawn spots some Duergar approaching. We hide near the walls, and attack them as they pass. Quickly despatching 4 of them, the last attempts to run, but is knocked out as he escapes.

After some careful discussion with me, he confirms that there is a large force of Duergar, and Orcs approaching. He agrees to delay them, and we retreated to the Horned Hold, and then onwards to the Seven-Pillared Hall. We arrive the next day and meet Randall at the Halfmoon Inn.

We are under attack… 3 wraith like creatures, and an ooze…!

Having fought them, during which Gardain was taken by the Ooze, but freed afterward, we then proceed. A mine ahead of us is lit by a powerful fire. As we approach bats fly from the fire and attack us…

… We defeat them, but not without cost. Havah and I are badly injured and so we retreat and rest.

A new adventure begins...

Gardain, Navah, Ulfr, Dawn and your good scribe, Rutludd are together again, and preparing for the next day!

Aurora has taken the freed slaves home, but we five remain… what will become of us.

There are however missing slaves - 2 slaves were taken away by Gnolls and may have been sold. We are back in the Hold, looking for clues.

We have checked Horned Hold, and there is no-one (or nothing else) present. We have agreed to proceed further into the mountain, to what end we do not yet know.

Daily Log 9, Day 10 ... bad news

Disaster, the world will never be same again. We have found Ned. He has not been treated kindly, and the body is dumped in a bath. We will mourn him once we return to the Halfmoon Inn. Raise a drink to him one-and-all. He will be remembered as a brave and caring fellow.

We have rescued the slaves though:

Gru – Goblin Captive
Aurora
Dawn
3 Prospectors
4 from the town

We have re-entered the Horned Hold again, and found a few doors barricaded. Going to the battlements we cannot get through the rear access door again, and we have to go through the other door. As expected it leads to the same location, and as we enter Duergar attack us.

Four Duergar, 1 Large Duergar (we assume a Captain of some king), 1 Duergar wizard. This will need us to press to succeed. I spray acid at them as Gardain, Gnora, Sedrick and Ulfr charge. Navah stays at the back. The Diva appears to have some control over magic as well.

Sedrick is surronded by the enemies and surely about to fall, when he lashes out at those around him. One of the Duergar staggers, and then grows in size, and when the blade stops move Gnara is on the ground… A quick appeal to Ulfr and Gnara is breathing again, but still on the floor.

One Duergar grows in size, but is cut down quickly by Gardian. Meanwhile I cause a Freezing Cloud to appear killing another Duergar, but causing another to grow. Gnara, since hit before and now on the ground suddenly leaps up and hits the very large Duergar. The large Duergar roars in pain, as the freezing cloud continues to engulf him, and pain creases his eyes and teeth. He falls over within the cloud – dead.

Gnora and Sedrick chase down the Dwarf Thegar and kill him. Meanwhile the Duergar captain attacks Gardian with me at his side, ensuring the Duergar is freezing slowly to death!

The captain is then bitten by Sedrick(!!!) and falls to the ground with Gnora’s sword in his back. Sedrick is confusing!
