After a long nights rest, our heroes awaken to an irritated Halfing ranting about their failure to produce the corpse of Greybeard. The group’s leader was demoted, the genasi and the dragonborne where fired, and Seeker (the Warforged Rogue) was mysteriously uncontious and proped in a corner. The group was introduced to their new leader, Mashro: a Minotaur Paladin who Charles had rescued from certain doom at the hands of nervous town guards. The group also picked up a much-needed healer, Jaelin Bal’dun, a Elven cleric.
Mashro led the group back to the fallen keep, and bravely charged into the Chapel’s crypt…and right into a translucent cube of living slime. A trap door in the ceiling opened behind the group, spilling a horde of rats behind them, trapping them in the hallway. The rats where laid to waste, and eventually even the mighty slim (whom Kenta named “Cosby”) was pulverized.
The party rested, then charged onward into the next chamber, which had been converted to an arean for Kobold’s favorite game, Skull Skull. Kenta and Pym let loose a rain of death and misery from afar, and it seemed the lizards where on the ropes. Then, the Barbarian saw a door, and did what he does everytime he sees a door: he kicked it down. 3 Guard Drakes spilled forth, laying low the Barbarian, Pym, and Mashro. Jaelin was hit by the Skull Skull stone, knocking him into the 10 foot deep pit filled with Kobold shit. Kenta did his best to keep the evil denzies at bay, but with Jaelin unable to exit the pit, all seemed lost. Then, in a moment of excremental intervention, Jaelin’s jumping caused a trapped methane bubble to burst underneath him, launching him skyward and depositing him next to Pym, whom he was able to resurrect. The Barbarian was soon revived as well, and the remaining drakes and kobolds where defeated. Tragicly, Mashro did not survive his first day on the job. After a heated debate over the ethicasy of devouring their dead comrade (and some questioning of the local market value of 300 pounds of beef), it was decided to preserve Mashro’s mangled body and take him back to town, where hopefully the healing masters of House Jorasco’s hospital could revive him…
