In this episode, the 3Bs…
- Orlando takes on the role of Kalad whilst Mikey is away. Brabbus hangs back guarding the entrance.
“The doors open a platform overlooking an enormous chamber. A group of orcs turns to face you, growling with rage and drooling with anticipation for the kill. Behind and below the orcs lies a sunken section of the chamber, where you see iron tubes as tall as a man running across the room. On the north side of the pit, you spot several large beetles, their mottled hides glowing red as if aflame. A short humanoid wearing a long black cloak is examining an iron wheel connected to the southern pipe. On the floor is the rest of Jen’s body.”
The 3Bs have a hard fight with the Beetles fire breath and the Orc rogue keeping them at range for a while. Kalad, using his ring of feather fall, legs it off the ledge to take on the Dark One who is out of place with these dwarves. On his body they find a very unusual key.
“a hollow brass tube 6 inches long, set with a round ring at one end and four flanges of differing lengths at the other”
They make their way through the door. Kalad insists on heading right, towards the Altar of Moradin where yet more Orcs are and a Troll which is
Eight orcs and one big, hulking brute befoul this sacred chamber by their mere presence. The orcs, a mix of hideous humanoids, shout warnings when they see you, causing the cave troll to turn, which reveals the blood and gore painting its chest. It had been eating it’s way through a pile of bodies that you recognise as the rest of the Farstriders.
The bombardiers cause issues for the party but by concentrating fire they deal with the troll quickly and efficiently.
Until next time…..
