BREAKING THE BAD NEWS TO ELDETH
Everyone reconvened at the Palace of the Deep King and slowly approached the now crown-weary Eldeth, not having good news to share. ….except for Zazz. Zazz told Eldeth everything:
- about the unholy torturings
- about the demon summonings
- about the level 5 spell scrolls he got as a gift and proceeded to use to retrieve his surprisingly “Owl-like” (re: stats) Imp – Voxx.
Voxx, being a demon was almost killed 5 minutes after first summoning by Reiker.
Righteously furious, Eldeth ordered that the party find proof of these activities so we can denounce them publicly during the upcoming Gala.
Eldeth sent Merrick (and Reiker) off to the Stone Speakers to see if they will help in “disciplining” the Council of Savants. And thanks to some Elvish cunning (sure, they’re known for that), he was able to convince the stone speakers to help:
Stonespeakers: ELDETH IS QUEEN NOW, RIGHT?
Stonespeakers: GOOD. HERE’S YOUR ADAMANTINE ARMOR (x5: Eldeth, Ront, Merrick, Reiker, and Greda)
TO THE COUNCIL OF SAVANTS!
The party (Greda, Zazz, Reiker, and Merrick) were able to ‘sneak in’ to the practically empty <s>dungeon </s>Council temple while the Savants were attending the "Graxultug Gala" with Eldeth, Ront, and Orrin. The party had a few lackeys who stayed behind – some old grannie witches – and was able to determine that the Council houses a pocket dimension (possibly several!) where they capture and bleed out other demons.
But how to get into the pocket dimensions? The doors are locked with a series of passcodes and riddles! Greda was able to solve one such puzzle (aka the “Diehard 3” puzzle), but were unsuccessful with the other two they came across.
#$%^&ing “Diminishing primes”….!
The last riddle the party took too long to solve ended in a random encounter. What comes after that WHO KNOWS
Also – I have in my notes that some time in this session (last session?), Zazz finally got his book of blank pages. This should be noted since he began his search for paper since the Campaign started
