Harm Incorporated – Ruins of Undermountain – Game Session – 003

Game summary for January 3, 2014, Ruins of Undermountain campaign; PCs included Boran Gibbs (human cleric), Kalil Bakran (human sorcerer), Paddy Brandywine (halfling bard [archaeologist]), and Rumbald Shieldcracker (dwarf ranger [dungeon rover]).

The Harm Inc. team entered another section of Undermountain and encountered a small pack of goblins led by a goblin snake shaman!  The singing creatures attacked with their dogslicers and torches!  The goblin snake hit Rumbald with a ray of enfeeblement, but Kalil countered it with a bull’s strength.  Boran quickly blessed the party and switched to his shortbow to better fight in the cramped hallways.  The goblins were fighting on two fronts, and the party broke through one side and swarmed the creatures from both directions.  They then discovered two smaller chambers.

Paddy accidentally triggered a fireball trap on one of the doors but found a small fortune in the room behind.  The second door proved untrapped, but the small tomb contained two cairn wights and some purple mold!  Boran channeled positive energy and moved in to engage.  He quickly learned the undead could drain life energy through their razor blades.  The team swarmed into the cramped quarters and took out the wights but found themselves woozy from the purple mold spores.  They quickly ran out and tossed alchemist’s fire within to clear the room.  They found some treasure in a stone box including a wand that could restore the effects of the wights’ negative energy.

The group went through another door and found a room with two dungeonbred manticores guarding a chest swinging from a chain on the ceiling.  The manticores hurled spikes at the party and fought viciously, but the team setup a number of flanks and took them down quickly.  They then sent Paddy up a rope where he unlocked the chest and took all the treasure within.

Behind another door, the team found a horrific sight!  A massive ogre zombie lord stood swinging an enormous hammer!  Even worse, his body swarmed with thousands of wasps!  Rumbald advanced and was beaten mercilessly.  Boran followed as well and was knocked unconscious by the creature’s hammer.  Paddy used his wand of magic missile, and Kalil used his lightning bolt.  Soon, the undead monster was destroyed, but this only unleashed the entire swarm of wasps!  Fortunately, Kalil’s lightning bolts eliminated them.  The team then discovered a belt of giant strength in the remnants of the corpse, and Rumbald put it on to enhance his physical prowess.

Next the group went down a hallway, and Rumbald went flying through the air and slammed into some magnetized ore!  His allies pried him loose and slipped through a door.  On the other side, they found an enormous heap of gleaming treasure!  Three of the team entered the room while Boran debated his options for passing by the giant magnet.  In the room, a young black dragon revealed itself and breathed acid all over the party!  Paddy dodged it with his evasion, and the team tore into the dragon.  Boran ripped a door from its hinges and used it as a shield to interfere with the magnetic pull.  He slipped in just as the dragon’s fangs and claws shredded Rumbald’s flesh.  Kalil hit it with a scorching ray, and Paddy sliced it with his magical sword Frostburn.  Rumbald stepped up and shield bashed the dragon to death!  The team then collected its small fortune in treasure!
