Harm Incorporated – Ruins of Undermountain – Game Session – 005

Game summary for March 15, 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 group entered yet another section of sprawling Undermountain and found a room with two semi-circular walled off sections occupied by wind-up clockwork minotaurs with the following sign posted:  “No Trespassing.  Visitors not welcome.  Guests not welcome.  Dr. Rotwang.”

The minotaurs click, clack, mooed to life and attacked!  The massive constructs proved very resistance to weapon attacks, although magic missile seemed to find its mark.  They discovered electricity was particularly effected against the monsters.  After several lightning bolts, bottled lightnings, and Rumbald’s shocking axe later, the creatures were reduced to slag.

The team then entered a room occupied by two steel-clad barbarians.  The armored hulks were once human but had steel plates bolted directly to them!  Rumbald charged in and plunged fifty feet into a pit of spikes!  Paddy told a bad joke (i.e., failed with hideous laughter), but Kalil used deep slumber from his wand to put one to sleep.  Boran used hold person on the other.  The group was able to hurl one into the pit (after Rumbald climbed out) and defeat the other.

The next room appeared to be some kind of laboratory with a chalkboard, tables, and a massive flesh golem!  The golem attacked.  Paddy learned he could slow the creature with his frost sword, but Rumbald sped it up with his shock axe!  The team decided to forgo the use of electricity and focus on some cold magic and the outright brutality of a well-swung sword or axe.  Soon, the flesh golem lay defeated.

Horror awaited in the next chamber, as they discovered walls slicked with old blood, and a viscous crimson blood pool in the floor.  Orc shredskins and human meat puppets shuffled to attack!  Boran was able to channel positive energy to damage all of the undead, and the team made short work of them.  They then discovered a chest attached via a chain to the edge of the pool.  They dragged up the chest and found several treasures within.

The team then entered another chamber and found a trio of necrocraft assemblages!  The undead moved to surround the team, a fast response allowed the group to drop the undead in record time.
