More Dice Tales

Not long ago, the Wizards of the Coast website posted a number of legends, tales, and myths about gaming dice from various players. They have posted a few more at the bottom of this Tales of Summoning, Idols and Dice article. Remember, stealing the luck of babies is just wrong.

Game Results for October 19, 2006

Thursday’s Age of Worms game went well. The party continued its exploration of the temple of Myrkul, investigating the bedroom used by the slain acolytes of Myrkul. They also discovered a storage room filled with foodstuffs and other supplies. While most of the party was in the acolyte bedroom, Fruos pulled out his portable ram and charged through a door on the other side of the temple. Within, he found himself face-to-face with a huge centipede, two more acolytes, and the Faceless One himself! Fruos attempted to withdraw, but he was caught by a color spray effect, beaten on by a summoned fiendish ape and then stabbed to death with daggers.

Several party members tried to come to his rescue but found themselves grappled by the spirits trapped within the pillars of the main temple. The Faceless One and his cronies drove the party back with lightning bolt and summon monster spells. Eventually, the Faceless One caught them in the hallway trying to flee the temple and hit Thoril with another lightning bolt as he opened a door. The party moved into position and succeeded in flanking and killing the evil wizard and another acolyte.

A search of the Faceless One’s laboratory revealed several items of interest, including the key which allowed the group to read the cipher scroll. They also recovered a few items of magical power and some bit of treasure. Goodbyes were said to the fallen half-orc barbarian (i.e. they looted his corpse) and the party made camp in the store room after emptying some of its contents.
