The party explores an… empty hideout of the Cult of the Devourer. The party muscle/vesk narrates. (-GM)
23rd Day of Lamashan, 317 AG
We emerged into a big dark room with a computer in the center, as well as a ghast that had been cut up into cubes. Chappie decided to hack the machine, and while many of us helped him, I was unable to participate due to my thick fingers. The computer was some sort of settings board, with buttons that switched “Temperature,” “Pressure”, “Lights,” and “Big Scary Devour Machine” on and off. After turning on Lights so we could see the room, I suggested we turn off the Big Scary Devour Machine, but was informed that decision-making was to be left in hands with sleeker digits than mine.
There was a door in the wall, so I decided to open it. As I was walking, a big laser blasted me and started sliding around the room. This was the Big Scary Devour Machine? I was unimpressed; it was barely a Medium Scary Devour Machine. XI and the others broke it easily, and the devastator-impersonator fizzled into nothing. I continued to the door and opened it, determined to not let the puny heat skewer obstruct me.
The door opened to a big U-shaped hallway with a bunch of other doors. We went to the door at the far right, and found some living quarters. The next room had three robots, which we dispatched. There was some inferior light armor, which my companions fawned upon while I knew not to stray from the true armor. One of the dressers was actually a fire trap, and after we triggered it we found some unlooted loot, like an electrostatic field which I got. Also among the loot were some necrografts and a datapad with a video of a verthani mentoring some gnome. They were singing some song that contained the phrase “Nyara knows.”
