Drums on Fire Mountain – Game Session – 009

Game summary for March 22, 2012, In Search of Adventure campaign, X8: Drums on Fire Mountain adventure; present characters included Dinendel “Legend” Telemnar (elf swashbuckler-enchanter), Nicholae Dragos (cleric elder), and Theobald Goblinbane (dwarf myrmidon).

The Conquerors of Chaos proceeded down a hallway flanked by six niches occupied by crystalline statues with animal heads.  As the team moved down the hallway, the statues animated in pairs and attacked!  With hammer, sword, and spear, the team thrashed away on the stony monsters causing them to explode when destroyed!  The team was showered with razor-edged shards and pounded by stone fists but eventually proved victorious.  Each step cost dearly in blood and time, and the team used many spells of healing as well as charges from Ma’Kala’s staff of healing.

The team then went down a long hallway and found a huge cylindrical chamber filled with steam and mist and over a hundred swarming stirges!  The group got the jump on the creatures and ran down a spiral stairway, stirges fluttering after, and got to safety at the bottom!

Legend sat in some stone thrones they found and discovered he could view other rooms around the complex.  He tried each seat and found one that revealed the fleeing pig-man!  He was doing something with a pair of gates before heading through another doorway.  The group looked for tracks and found clear human-sized prints heading further down the chamber stairs.  The group set off with haste to try and catch the pig-man!

The above summary is for a game session of Dungeons & Dragons BECMI / RC edition played by the Phoenix Gaming Club.
