The fall of the team’s primary caster left most of the party dumbfounded for a moment – long enough to trigger a transportation spell that summoned a new PC to the party: Talas – the Seduction Rogue!
Dumbfounded as to how she appeared and for what reason (or that Zazz was ever married), the party peppered Talas with many questions regarding her origin. Once satisfied that she was no danger to them, the party moved on, accepting her as one of their own.
REIKER v TALAS:
Searching the room for both magical (Reiker) and regular (Talas) items, Reiker discovered papers from Amnicxz’s experiments – the party now had the proof they were looking for! They also discovered that Amnicxz had left some magical traps for those who would dare enter. Deciding to use it to the team’s tactical advantage, Reiker and Talas positioned the team so it would help wipe out the remaining guards. A quick battle ensues with our party victorious. The only remaining thing left to do? Rescue Vogo.
OPERATION: RESCUE VOGO
Scanning the rest of the caverns in this pocket dimension leads the group to 3 distinct caverns:
- One leads them to a prison of Dwarves
- A second leads them to the Dwarves’ guards
- The Third leads the party to a rather large monster (holding Voggo?)
A couple of battles (each after some extensive planning — caltrops, ball bearings, crawling the walls to cross a river), the team attacks each time – only to resort to improvisation on the fly both times. Luckily, Voggo knows how to return back from the demi-plane and the party returns back to the Duegar reception – where the Derro are held accountable for their crimes against the city and arrested by the Stone Speakers.
WHERE DOES THE PARTY GO FROM HERE?
