Leaving the recently vandalized tomb, the party discovered a blocked passage with tracks along its floor. Quick thinking as they are, they began pushing this False Wall up the slope along the tracks. This revealed another hallway, which they entered and found the Romeo and Juliet room…so they backtracked to the False Wall.
Reth released the latch of the False Wall in hopes that he could out run the rolling slab. Instead he found himself crushed under the weight of the slab. Strong as he is, he was able to get out from underneath it, only to fail at running away from it a second time, and becoming stuck under it again.
Phylo grew vines on the slab, and the rest of the party was able to pull the slab all the way up the slope with Reth’s help and have it stow away in a secret area.
Next, Daisy, the amazing Mastif, discovered a BEHOLDER! So the group decided to kill the BEHOLDER. It went exactly as expected, even though it wasn’t really a BEHOLDER. Finally, after licking their wounds, Reth ran back inside the room and fell the killing blow to the BEHOLDER.
Reth found another Magic Box on the wall…cool! He was so excited, he ventured off on his own into the next hall and was immediately crushed by ANOTHER ROLLING BOULDER TRAP.
Then the group found a fun game PELOTA!™ They quickly proved to be expert Pelota players…who knew.
They then found a room with a bunch of cats (stuffed cats) and Faedell mended one, earning TWENTY GOLD PIECES! (or 500 based on how you look at it) to which Phylo demanded that the group share…5 GP each. Of course, the Cleric is too greedy to relinquish 15gp to his partners, so Phylo took it upon himself (during Reth and Silentread’s battle with the ACTUAL opponent) to start a fight against Faedell.
Now, we ALL know that a Druid vs a Cleric is a one-sided battle, the Cleric ALWAYS win.
So the Druid bests the Cleric as expected and Faedell gives 5gp to Phylo and 10gp to Reth, who gives 10gp to Silentread as payment for killing Daisy.
With that done, the party finds a new place, where first Reth gets trapped in some mechanical trap (over balsa wood and rubber), escapes and immediately throws Phylo (cute phanaton) through another door (which teleports him all the way back to the hall where he was trapped days ago with baboons and Wayland’s WInd.
Fast thinking (and rampant misuse of magic boxes) reunited Phylo with the group just before they got shot with crossbows when opening the final door in that one place with the fake pit trap and portal door…remember?
Doppelganger copies Phylo, now Reth has TWO phanatons on his shoulders. Treasures found, fun had! I believe long rest as well.
Next time, TPK!
