When the party awoke, Phylo was back with them, having worn the doppleganger phanaton out with his love-making talent.
They made their way out of the room via the roof hole with help from a now flying Silentread.
Above ground in the full moon, they came upon the ruins of the Shrine of Tomoachan. The walls glowed green as Zotzalaha’s voice boomed in their heads.
“You have violated my secret temple…blah blah blah blah”
Then from the ground arose the temple in all its former glory (even the lost walls…whatever that means). Along with the walls and stuff there were 6 vampire spawns and Roywyn’s former companions, all now at the command of Zotzalaha and hell-bent (pardon the pun) on killing the party.
I won’t go into so much detail…ok, let’s
Waylan set fire to the entrance of the Shrine to keep the former members of Roywyn’s party contained.
Faedell turned undead two of the vampire spawns.
Daisy went back to her plane.
Silentread became dominated by Zotzalaha and began to shoot her companions.
Faedell as well was dominated and used his Spiritual Guardian poorly wasting his only high-level slot…its as if the DM was making them do BAD things.
Roywyn was all stabby-stabby until Reth, being dominated, turned her into dust (actually she was able to sneak away unseen by him because…Reth)
Reth, happy in his killing of Roywyn, proceeded to smite the Cleric dead (well unconscious and dying anyhow)
When everyone had finally shaken the domination, they scaled the walls and began fighting (all except Reth, who simply walked through the fire door).
Phylo pulled out some sphere of force and locked Reth and two of the enemies (Veronika the monk, and Drongren the fighter) in a 1lb sphere.
More fighting, then Waylan, using Mage Hand, lifted the sphere 30ft above the fire, Phylo dismissed the sphere, and the three came tumbling down taking damage and some fire damage too.
Eventually the monk and the fighter (Veronika and Drongren) were dispatched, so the gang surrounded the remaining enemy (Kelera the ranger) and set her soul free.
Zotzalaha screamed at the heroes as he was banished once again to a prison plane vowing to “Kill you all and your children, and your children’s children, and their children, and your grandparents, and your third cousin twice removed, and…”
Thus, Catastrophe Inc. retired back to Waterdeep with new found loot to take a long rest at home.
