Stoneheart Dungeon #7: Kingmaker!

The party took a reprieve from their mission and the Orcus cultists and decided to open a casino in Taverlan. But as the saying goes: you can take the party out of the dungeon, but you can’t take the dungeon out of the party… (-GM)

14th day of Arodus, 4717 AR

One of Meme’s minions

Hello, I am Isaac, a ratfolk. I’m Isaax’s distant cousin. I have been recently traveling around when I spotted a town called Taverlan. As I entered town, I saw a fire and dead bodies. I realized that Isaax was one of them. I also smelled the distinct smell that I hadn’t smelled for 2 years. It was the smell of a sauna! Additionally, I only saw 2 people, a priest of good, and a priest of bad, I later learned was named Meme. Then I asked how this all happened. Meme handed me a piece of paper from Isaax’s bag and said she will fill in the missing parts.

It went like this;

Entry 333: Wow, what a day after traveling back to town and meeting Boominator the Beautiful (a goblin and sister of the late Groominator the Great -GM), we decided to creating a casino. Wow, that’s an unlikely turn of events. At least, after a year, we might have enough to buy a magic item. In the process, we had to get a loan. Meme tried hitting on the bank person, but we got a loan anyway.

Princes of the Apocalypse #12: Beneath the Earth

In a missing chapter of our tale, the party had a nightmarish dream sequence before finding some lacedons (aquatic ghouls) beneath Rivergard Keep. In this chapter narrated by the party druid, Isaac, the party finally makes a breakthrough at the Sacred Stone Monastery. (-GM)

27th of Mirtul, 1491 Dale Reckoning

Episode 1: Greatest Victories of Princes of the Apocalypse
Scenario: Confronted and flanked by 9 or 10 monks, a monk spellcaster, stone warrior, and one monk with especially high heels that are very sharp vs. the adventurers.

I sincerely remember the moment when Lalia charged up to the high-heeled lady and got attacked.

The battle started right before I cast conjure animals and spawned 8 snakes that went for their spell caster and stone warrior. The spell caster said weird words and everyone felt slow for second, but some of my companions and I shook it off.

The monks charged us in the back and took out Hypernova by knocking him unconscious. The party fought back with tremendous strength. Then their spell caster tried to blow off my snake’s ear drums with the shatter spell, but most of the snakes resisted. I sincerely remember the moment when Lalia charged up to the high-heeled lady and got attacked. Lalia looked very battered from my vantage point, and the lady almost stumbled by the huge impact of the sword’s slash.

I spawned some big eagles to help us, but only 2 minutes in, it was looking like a resounding victory for us. The funniest part was when one monk was running for it, he got grappled by a snake and killed.

Princes of the Apocalypse #8: A Brick Wall

The party once again tries to take on the monastery with earth cultists inside it, but this time with help from Feathergale Spire. The residents of the monastery again put up a tough fight. (-GM)

11th of Mirtul, 1491 Dale Reckoning

monksWe started by traveling back to the temple. Over there, we sought high ground to find other entrances and see what the whole temple was like. We saw two side entrances. As we snuck back around, two monks from the monastery attacked us. One of them decided to go back for help. We killed the monk in 3 or 4 rounds.

As we went around to the front, 6 or 7 more monks attacked us. We fought. Two thunder waves were cast. I fled a little, but came back to help. We eventually fought off the monks.

Afterward, we ventured into the temple a little bit more. On the right, we saw a monster. We fled down the other passageway as our rogue Lalia jammed the lock. Two duergars appeared right in front of us. We fought them and Isaac cast heat metal on one of them. Then two more duergars and an enlarged one appeared in front of us. So we were fighting five normal duergars and an enlarged one. We eventually defeated them when another unknown monster started coming toward us. We ran.

Papyrus’ boyfriend, Windharrow, also left because he had business to do. So we returned to Red Larch.
