White Plume Mountain – Game Session – 002

Game summary for May 1, 2012, Priscus Venatus campaign, S2: White Plume Mountain adventure; present PCs included Marvin Clearmind (paladin), and Nosorn “The Nose” Silversword (dwarf fighter/thief) and present henchmen included Acwald Doubleaxe (dwarf fighter) and Vivienne Longshanks (cleric dual fighter).

The Swords of Greyhawk left the spinning corridor behind and opened the large metal doors before them.  On the other side, another metal door behind which was another metal door.  Finally, the team proceeded down a hallway into a large bubble surrounded by a boiling lake.  Within the bubble scuttled a massive crab!  Stunned momentarily, the group allowed the monster to scurry up and maul Nosorn.  The brutal attack wounded the dwarf badly, and Marvin bravely stepped in front to take the brunt of the attacks.  Acwald’s powerful bardiche cracked shell, and the team slaughtered the crab.  Within a large chest, they discovered the mighty trident, Wave!  The weapon rejected Marvin as a wielder but accepted Nosorn.

The group then proceeded back to the gynosphinx and took another branch, heading to the right.  A few steps later, Marvin discovered green slime growing up his magical armor!  He panicked and fled down the hallway as his dwarven allies yelled for him to banish it like a disease.  Dropping the ruined dagger he was using to scrape off the slime, he called upon the might of Heironeous and cured disease, which slew the slime.  He then investigated ahead, finding a patch of the stuff under the water.  He reached down and used his last cure disease for the week to slay that patch as well.

The group then found a stairway and door and decided to leave it for later.  They rounded another corner and found a second stair and door.  The group cautiously moved into a room filled with nine mirror globes hanging from the ceiling.  As they entered, magic compelled the door closed, and it locked.  The group began busting the globes and finding keys and treasures within.  Before long, they had released shadows, but Marvin kept them back with the power of Heironeous.  Then, they released a gray ooze but were able to kill it quickly.  Finally, an air elemental was released and beat Nosorn nearly to death.  The group just managed to find the right key and flee the room, slamming the door shut behind, sealing in the shadows and air elemental.

Exhausted and battered, the group slinked back down the corridor to nurse their wounds.
