Barrowmaze Last Night
Last night's session was pretty interesting. initially I was going to audio record it. I didn't, but I should have. The party had been following the pulses of the Fount of Law in an attempt to find the Pit of Chaos. They came across a set of large sealed double doors. Thinking this the possible entrance to the pit, they entered but instead found it to be the Vault of The Chosen, Nergal's elite clerical sect. They 10' foot poled their way east after knocking down a bricked-up wall. They came to a room and, despite tapping the floor, the body weight of the cleric Cromwell and the dwarf Kelg made the entire floor giveway in a trap. After landing on their asses a great abomination of bone came forth with a antlered deer skull and four arms! Winning initiative it hit Kelg and Cromwell who were prone. Cromwell attempted to cast the next round but this was wasted by a strike from a scimitar. Kelg was hit several times and drank a Potion of Extra-Healing to keep himself alive as the halfling Snake Pliskin fired sling stones and the fighter Sol stood agog holding a rope. Kelg and Cromwell were hit several more times and it looked like curtains for the two of them. Kelg decided to drink his Potion of Growth. With several sling stone hits by Snake, and three double damage hits by Kelg, they managed to drop the dreaded Bone Golem. Then the action began lol Employing the "One More Room" approach, the party entered the other bricked-up room. Sol poled around the walls of the room and returned safely. They noticed that the ceiling of this domed room appeared to sparkle like star constellations. Cromwell, the fifth level cleric, stepped into the center of the room for a closer look and...fell into a bottomless pit! Oh yeah, did I mention he was carrying The Fount of Law? The game certainly has a way of keeping things interesting...
