The treasure vaults of zadabad...spoiler warning
I'll try not to give away much. But stuff happens
We had our second session. Third if you count the well of souls funnel. At the end of the last session, the party had gotten it's ass kicked by vampire bats. They retreated for rest and healing, much to the shrunken head/amulet Baltheus' relief
Baltheus' whining and harping earned him a spot as scout being dangled down a deep hole to see if there was any danger. Not to be outdone, he promptly praised the wealth of gold to be found at the bottom. The party quickly followed and was quite annoyed to only find mining carts and a track.
After a bit of disfavor, the cleric wasn't keen on riding in the carts...but they did. And luck favored the hell out of them as they made all required checks to complete the journey intact. In fact they excelled and made a happy jaunt of it. But the noise gave the bad guy spellcaster ample warning
In this case only the wizard entered the chamber. I thought I would have an awesome spell duel in hand (the Stat block didn't give a caster level for the dude. I decided on third since he could do second level spells and had three hit die. I assume that was the intent. Any misunderstanding is my fault and not the author's ) he got the drop and pulled off an excellent roll for a Web spell and sealed off the entrance, splitting the party. This was gonna be good...
Then he had initiative and blew chunks on the sleep spell. Since no one had anything to counter with, the wizard as well as the cleric and the elf could bring spells to bear (I ruled that the cleric and elf could cast through the Web with only a small risk of entanglement ) the party wizard rolled an awesome paralyze spell and dropped the bad guy in his tracks...just as the demon servant showed up.
From there things were pretty standard with hacking away a the webs and such. The party wizard felt cocky and went for an enlarge ln the warrior...resulting in the first corruption in our game. The wizard is now seven and a half feet tall...mostly due to his shins.
(The warrior asked "my shins?" I said "no, you aren't paying for the wizard's sloppy casting")
From there they battled their way through other fun encounters until they had to decide how to get out of the mine. They believed that the village shaman was spying on them through Baltheus eyes. And that there was a pack of village warriors waiting to take the back to the village where the warrior would be feted while the rest would be the main feast course.
So they decided to stage their deaths by acting out a horrible death scene with the corpse of the giant lizard, using Baltheus head as the camera. Using ropes to manipulate the corpse and the halfling doing a Blair Witch routine for the shrunken head/camera. They have no idea if it worked because Baltheus doesn't know if the shaman is watching or not. But the Warriors were gonna when they exited, so....
The session ended with them returning to a tomb they had found before,now better equipped with tools to Crack it. They know that the sarcophagus room is much too small and that there must be a secret door. ...and I told them they have all the clues necessary to figure it out. But they will have to mull that over until next time
