We should open a bar!

Here is our weekly D&D update

Having just defeated the human commander and his hobgoblin lackeys, the party moves forth in search of the dwarf porter’s guild leader.  They manage to find him in the next room with a few of his buddies and his pet wolf fluffy.  The dwarf barks a warning to a little halfling who runs off into another room before rushing the heroes.  As our heroes rushed forward to meet the enemy, they soon learned that the room had many pit traps.  Sarge almost found himself in a hole and the unlucky Kava once again found himself in a heap at the bottom of a pit.  The heroes fought hard with Sarge gaining a record for most hits required to take down a K9.  After the battle Kava found a nice set of Hide armor.

After finishing off the Barstomun, the party cautiously ventures forth into a very odd room.  As they cross over a temporary bridge the room shakes to life.  The platforms shift and move and sometimes spray the combatants with fire, gas, darts or spears.  The thieves in this room surrounded the heroes and inflicted quite a bit of pain.  The hard battle concluded with Kane using his mage hand spell to turn a key, stopping the room of death.  Kava did a great job escorting the bridge throughout the battle.

The party then came to a large double door with an eye inscribed on it.  No one was able to determine what the symbol meant.  As they burst through the door they were greeted by an evil mage who’s face and arms were covered in harsh runes and symbols.  He blasted the party with thunder and lightning.  Other foes were hidden behind curtains in the room and rushed out to meet the heroes.  Kava rush forward bravely but was hammered to the ground by the mage’s guards.  Sarge used his dragon breath to light most of the curtains of fire, creating a hazard for anyone near them and eliminating hiding places.  Hesikiah did his best to keep the Dragonborn on their feet but Kava was repeatedly pummeled and remained unconscious for most of the battle.  Hesikiah did manage to bless the party.  (and don’t you forget.  Fool!)  Kane, in an act of sheer bravery, rushed forward and blasted the mage and his halfling artillery force.  He was able to take down 2 or 3 in one blast.  Sarge delivered a tremendous blow that rocked the mage causing him to run to a corner to continue his fight.  After finally dispatching the remaining guards our heroes came together and triumphed over the mage.   Their efforts were rewarded with Sarge gaining an amulet of protection.

After their long ordeal, the heroes were escorted to the lord.  With Kane waiting outside, the lord apologized for his earlier encounter.  He paid them in full plus a bonus for removing the kobold threat and offered them first crack at a bounty placed on the dragon’s head.  He also informed them that the bar they just descended under no longer had an owner (the owner was one of the thieves in the room of death) and they could have it.  They also received gold and a store credit from the head of the merchant’s guild.  They were grateful for removing the corrupt porter’s guild leader who used his muscle to extort goods and gold from the local merchant community.

The names of our heroes are now well known in Fallcrest.  Word of their deeds may even be spreading further.  The question is though, who is listening…
