Harm Incorporated – Ruins of Undermountain – Game Session – 004

Game summary for February 1, 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 Incorporated team threw open yet another door in deep, deadly Undermountain!  Behind it, they discovered some snarling dire rats along with a wyvaran sorcerer and three kobolds!  The battle was instant, with Paddy leading the charge!  Kalil unleashed a fireball and took down the dire rats.  The party moved in quickly to swarm the creatures and took them out.

The team then opened a doorway and found two enormous ettins!  The arguing creatures instantly shifting their attention to the little meals running around and came crashing through the wall!  The ettins began bashing the party with their spiked clubs, but a barrage of spells and blades later, the ettins lay dead at the feet of Rumbald.  Paddy discovered a loose flagstone concealing some small treasure along with a secret door.  The group went through the secret door and triggered a spiked pit!  Everyone dodged except Kalil who plummeted the fifty feet into the spiked pit.  Injured, he required magical aid when raised upon a rope.

Another door revealed an interrogation room occupied by two bugbears wearing spiked armor and carrying punching daggers with razor edges.  One of the bugbears began brutally stabbing Rumbald.  Thinking quickly, Paddy cast hideous laughter to tell a hilarious joke and cause one of the goblinoids to roll about laughing.  Soon the team mopped up the two brutes.

The next room was a killing field flanked on either side by arrow slits with orc crossbowmen on the other side!  The party carried tables on either side as massive shields to get Paddy to the door so he could get them back to the crossbowmen.  A few bolts landed true, but most thunked into heavy tables.  The team surged back and took out the orcs with blade and spell.

Finally, the team opened another door to reveal an octagonal room occupied by a single man, Bruce Lee.  Master Lee challenged the team, and they rumbled for quite some time.  Rumbald and Paddy found themselves repeatedly disarmed and thrown to the ground under a barrage of punches and kicks!  Boran landed a critical hit with a searing light, and Kalil ended the fight with a scorching ray!  Admitting defeat, Master Lee disappeared in a puff of blue smoke, but the team realized they had honed their own hand-to-hand combat skills after the experience.
