The group continued through the Drow Enclave – The next encounter was Phase Spiders. Ghazan used his innate ability to see areas of the map that weren’t actually explored yet, and went around the Spiders and saw a Drow wizard and two body guards. Ghazan used his Oath bow and killed the Wizard before he had a chance to do anything.
Leo – Fresh out of any other spells, turned into a “Huge frickin’ guy” (In the boondock saints voice) – he was actually a huge ape(gorilla?) and as luck would have it…fumbled his initial attack. This resulted in him being unable to use the same attack for 5 rounds – Having just an attack that allowed him to throw things, Leo proceeding to chuck beds at spiders, with “great success” (Borat voice).
As the Drow wizard went down the body guards ran – The group followed them and “cornered” them in a room that was closed off the entire time and didn’t just have a wall put there. The drow now had a Draegoloth (Not idea how it is spelled.) with them. Leo, in ape form, was incapacitated with a drow bolt and things weren’t looking good for the Daring. Relying on them for the second time in as many weeks, Ghazan used the horn of his tribe and summoned the ghosts of his people to aid in the battle. The Daring were able to wipe them out pretty easy after that. there was captured Svknfsdkjf;asldkfj in this room, we freed them and they made their way back to the city.
The group then proceed down another level where they heard Elven chanting, to Lloth. No one thought this was weird at all and didn’t even stop to think about it. The group came upon a person chanting at an altar with their back to us and surrounding that person was a bunch of drow, in what appeared to be prayer. Du’tch performed a DUTCH OVEN – which is the name we all agreed was awesome and Yip was a little hurt that he was the one to have to yell it and really felt that Du’tch needs to starting owning that name – All of the drow in prayer were killed, the person at the altar turned and we saw that she was a super sexy elven lass that we all really really want to bang, and still talk about wanting to bang – Oh, Du’tch then flipped her off.
Ghazan then came in and hit her with two arrows in the chest – And still not a single member of the group thought it was a little strange that there was an elf chilling with drow. We approached the Elf in her death throes, Leo saved her with a spell we probably wouldn’t need later. She then said some stuff to Drake and we found out she was his long lost sister and that the rest of Drake’s tribe had been slain during that raid long ago. The sister (whatever Drake’s maybe sister is in real life…Relain or some shit) then tried to lightning bolt herself in a suicide attempt. Du’tch countered the spell, using another spell I’m sure we wouldn’t need later. The sister was still mentally unstable, so we had to manacle her and left TWO-Gs with her.
In the next area there was closed stone door, with enough of a crack for us to see inside. Instead of thinking that they were all hurt and completely out of spells – Yip just knocked the door down with his hammer. It took a lot of swings and at no point in time did anyone stop to think that it may have been a bad idea.
The door got knocked down and there was a priestess and two bodyguards inside. The priestess summoned a yolchol (spelling?) and it immediately dominated Yip – We essentially spent and entire round trying to free Yip, people missed attacks and failed saves and luckily Ghazan hit him with an arrow and got him out of it – It was kinda all for naught though, because then the Yolchol clubbed him into unconsciousness with two vicious hits. The group all played their parts in a tactical retreat, Du’tch was able to pull Yip away from the monsters, after Drake had fed him a potion – And we were just barely able to run from the group – We gathered TWO-Gs and sexy sis and made our way back to the Svnisdjsdfskldfg;dfl town.
There was a heroes welcome for the group – But it was short lived, the group rested just long enough and then returned to the enclave. The drow were gone though. there was a drow spider statue in the enclave that Yip threw his hammer at, it came to life and the group managed to bring it down. The group returned to the city and participated in a large celebration, they each were given a black pendant which symbolized that they were welcome in the city, which had not happened before.
The group then moved on from the city and made their way back to the surface. Their next encounter was as they were setting up camp for the night, during a full moon. A group of travelers approached the camp and asked if they could share the camp with The Daring for the night. Leo and Drake grew suspicious and eventually The Daring told them they could not share the camp – I think Ghazan was arguing with the man guy, when in the heat of the argument he transformed into an Alpha werewolf, and the other travelers changed as well – The Daring beat them easily enough, but both Drake and Du’tch were bitten, and received the curse of lycanthropy.
The next encounter was when The Daring came upon a man who was seated in the snow – they approached and spoke him – His name was Art-tor (spelling?) he had been a caravan guard, but had been lax in his duty, he had went to use the bathroom and took a little snooze afterwards, when he awoke the caravan had left him. The Daring agreed to let him travel with them and they brought him to the next town.
the town was called a name, and the Daring got there on Schmistmas Scmeve. There were no taverns or inns so they lucked out and a family allowed them to stay with them. Their youngest Child, Timmy, asked to go play with his friends and his parents agreed, if he came back by sundown. When Timmy didn’t come back, Leo checked on him – Found him, and proceeded to encourage Timmy to break curfew, which I’m sure would have no negative results for Timmy at all.
Timmy got back with Leo, and the night proceeded fairly normally. The Daring bedded down for the night. They awoke to the screams of Timmy’s parents – The Daring ran outside and saw that Timmy had been taken….BY KRAMPUS! Timmy’s head was sticking out of the sack on Krampus’ back. The Daring chased him around the back of the house and had a Holiday Throw Down.
Krampus summoned a few snow men – Ghazan oath bowed him – And Krampus took it like a boss. Yip charged at him, but Krampus frightened him (He screamed literally like a small girl) and then grappled him…WITH THIS TONGUE. The battle continued for another round, with The Daring dealing some potent damage – But on Krampus’ next turn…He picked Yip up with his Tongue and put him in the sack!
The Daring fought him for a few more rounds and finally managed to bring the Fabled Holiday Horror down. Leo tried to get into the sack to check on Yip and Timmy, but little toys nipped at his fingers.
Inside the sack, Yip fell through space and landed in a cave – there was numerous little kids (about eightyninety) and some goblins who were dragging kids away. Yip swatted them to mush with his Hammer. Ghazan, not bothering to weigh the pros and cons, went into action and dove into the sack. He landed in the cave with Yip and helped him gather the children and attack the goblins. Leo was a little smarter and tied a rope around a tree and then to himself – He jumped in the sack. When he landed, he tugged on the rope and it came out of the ceiling like a crazy never ending magician rope. Drake pulled on the rope outside of the sack and the same thing happened.
The three in the sack gathered up the rest of the kids and finished off (sexually) all of the goblins. It was a gruesome scene, there were bodies of partially eaten kids all over the place. The group found a snow globe, which showed a scene of the area just outside of the sack, back where Drake and Du’tch were. After gathering all of the kids up, Leo turned the crank of the snow globes and everyone was sucked into the snowglobe – Materializing back in the real world, and dropping a few feet to the ground.
Timmy’s parents were super happy and then town was super stressing – The leaders of the town said they would send word to the local constable and arrange for the kids to be taken care of…but there was like eightyninety kids, it made for a rough christmas.
Ghazan brought out gifts for everyone though! …Well, not you, kids who had literally just gone through hell and watched other little kids be tortured and eaten alive…But The Daring got sweet “The Daring” signet rings! Sweet! Fuck you little kids!
Art-Tor decided he would stay in this town for now and The Daring moved on, they were about four days out from Ghazan’s tribe. Oh and we totally ignored the fact that the sister was with us the entire time. I’m sure she was fine though.
