In attendance; Joe, Aaron, Jason, Rob and Roy.
Meal plans; it was decided to eat at the Corner Cafe’ to which they fucked it up. Giving Joe and Rob chilli and fries instead of plan chilli and some fries. And we ordered somebody chicken. I paid 10 bucks for a bun and one slice of ham.
The night begins with everyone eating and catching up. While Roy and Aaron were outside taking a smoke Rob shit on Aaron’s cushion, leaving a “squirt”. Joe tried to snag Roy’s Dagwood while Jason took just about every single one from K’s leaving only one for the poor soul that came after who may have been craving a Dagwood to find only a small small sample. That soul turned out to be Roy. We then discover that Jason is a cock knocker for not posting the notes from the previous session. And Rob’s printer works for a 3rd time.
Time 7:37 PM
Rob is assaulting the senses one again that sends the group into fits…Roy begins to cough and actually comes close to throwing up. NO FAN!! The group decides to use Angies painting masks and so they are passed out for emergency. Most of Jason’s notes were not recorded Jason is indeed a Cock Knocker and fuck you Aaron, dont scream at me. Jason swears he did keep notes. So it is decided that He is not one because Aaron accidently deleted Jason’s notes. Aaron is the Cock Knocker by DM decision.
Time 8:00 PM
We start and before we are even able to start up with the fight Rob once again lets a sewage smelling assault that smells of rot, feces, and sweat. It actually can not be stopped by the masks. They are completely useless.
Treagon starts out the fight and attacks the preistess, but is the preistess actually still alive? It is decided that the Drow was dead and combat is over. SO with combat concluded from the previous secession Helm helps cut Mara ouit of the web as Ebon checks the two doors in the 15 X 25 room. Zanlin uses one of his more powerful spells and tells the group to gather around. As the group looks on Zanlin closes his eyes and begins to chant. Moving his hand that is now glowing white in a circular motion a white glow engulfs and heals the group. The group decides to open the north door to reveal a very lavish bedroom with beautiful furniture and a footlocker at the base of the bed. Trageon and Helm decide to stay outside and stand guard as the rest enter the room to investigate and search. Zanlin finds some papers on the desk to reveal that a group called “The Eyes of Waterdeep”. As he searches more he finds a hidden compartment and latch that opens to reveal a key. As Zanlin is searching the desk Ebon is searching the footlocker and finds it locked and trapped with a poison needle. Ebon gets out his tools and easliy disarms the lock and uses the key Zanlin found to unlock the footlocker.
In the footlocker the group finds 2000 pp, a gold ring set with bloodstones, a decanter, and a rolled up well made tapistry. As all this searching is going on at the same time, Mara is searching (side note Rob starts rubbing his dog with dryer sheets to make him smell good as the DM asks why don’t you wipe your ass with one of those.) Ebon discovers that the decanter is magicial in some way. Mara checks the wardrobe and finds nothing as Zanlin finds nothing around the bed. Zanlin decides to take one of the finely made exotic Drow outfits to add to his collection.
The group decides to open the western door and finds another bedroom with two beds. A footlocker sits at the foot of each bed. Helm searches the bodies of the Drows in the hallway and finds the keys to the two footlockers which contain another 2000pp, 3 black opals and one star sapphire.
Time 8:35 PM
Helm is able to examine the jewels and discovered their value as Ebon finds a magical in the potion (potion of supreme healing). It is decided to give it to Tregeon. Zanlin finds some papers that identify some businesses that are being blackmailed to pay the “Eyes of Waterdeep” protection money. After both rooms are searched the group searches the southwestern door. As Ebon approaches the door a voice from behind the door warns the group, “Come no closer pussy, or I will unleash the hounds!!” Ebon stops and tells the voice, “We are opening that door and if you release one hound you will be the first to die.” “How about you come out here and we talk…no hounds.” The voice warns the group again, " I emplore you to not open the door or the hounds are released." Mara moves forward and kicks the door open after she hears sounds that sound fake. BATTLE
Time 8:46 PM
Tregeon moves to a defensive stance as Ebon readys an action and Helm changes into a Giant Hyena. Mara, gritting her teeth, readies her two short swords and kicks the door in with a scream. She finds herself surrounded by 4 Giant Hyenas and takes a bite as soon as she enters, letting out a scream in pain. Upon hearing this Tregeon rushes into the room with his longsword and attacks one of the massive beasts. At the same time Mara takes 3 swings at the one on her and only makes contact once. Ebon moves in and scans the room, finding the small humaniod figure he raises his hand and points at the figure and begins to mutter something under his breath. The humaniod is held by Ebon’s spell. Helm tries to attack but he finds out that he is too big to fit through the door. Tregeon attacks again and deals a single blow to the creature as the trio attack him, each one misses. Ebon, while maintaining control over the small humaniod fires a firebolt into one of the beasts, blackening it’s fur. Helm, decides to return to his normal form and tries to slap one of the magical control collars on one of the hyenas. As Helm attempts to place the collar, Zanlin’s eyes begin to glow white as static and sparks of energy emit from his body. He throws his hand forward as if he was throwing something and casts Chain Lighting into the room shocking the party’s foes as the Hyenas welp in pain and the little figures screams in pain. Mara Swings twice at the Hyena she is fighting and hits with both strikes, she then turns to Tregeon and tells him, “Get off your ass and kill that thing!” giving Tregeon some pep and 8 hitpoints. Tregeon screams a war cry and cuts one down as he feels renewed vigor with two strikes. The Hyena on Mara strikes her once again as she feels her life slipping away with 14 hitpoints left. She looks longingly at helm… needing his salve. Ebon leans into the room and hits the tiny human with another firebolt as helm moves into the room and tries to place the collar on another one of Hyenas. Mara, using every last ounce of her strength strikes and takes out one of the Hyenas and then moves in to strike the little guy, striking him with one of her swords.
Time 9:45 PM
Tregeon continues the fight with two strikes against the two remaining Hyenas, striking oene twice and quickly bringing his shield around to deflect one of the beast’s bites and causing the other to bite himself, as the Hyena tries to bite Tregeon it accidently cuts one of it’s own major blood vessels and bleeds out, killing himself. The remaining Hyena strikes Helm by locking onto his neck, causing Helm to scream in pain. Ebon leans in and strikes the remaining Hyena with yet another firebolt. Helm is finally able to slap a control band on the Hyena and it begins to calm down and becomes nonhostle. Mara comes in and takes her short sword , driving it into the bottom of the little figures jaw straight up through his mouth and into his brain. He gurgles and falls forward. The group finds that the little figure was actually a fully grown very tiny Drow Elf.
(Smoke Break request was motioned and granted) Jay and Roy dance with death as they send pictures to Angie with home improvements and cheaps lobar.
The room with Hyenas is a holding area with cages for the Hyenas. The group decides to take the hallway to the south. Ebon scouts the hallway staying infront about 20 feet as the group slowly makes their way down the hall. Stopping suddenly as he notices the floor of the hallway infront of him is strangley off colored. He kneels down to take a better look and discovers a spike trap in the floor. He cast Mage Hand and uses it to press down on the trap releasing the half foot long spikes that cover the entire 5 foot area. Ebon backs up and jumps over the trap to peer around the corner to see that the corridor goes east for 20 feet and takes a turn to the south. He discovers yet another trap and uses the Mage Hand to trigger it once again. The group proceeds down the tunnel making their way through the traps as they follow Ebon.
At the end of the corridor the group coes into a somewhat octagonal room with training dummies, weaons scattered across the floor, archery targets and weapon racks. The room has 5 wooden doors. Ebon makes his way to each of the doors and discovers all are not locked but one. The group decides to check all the unlocked doors first starting with the southeastern door. Finding a small bunkbed and footlocker in each of the four unlocked rooms. The group pulls all the footlockers into the training area. Zanlin and Mara watch the hallway as Ebon investigates the lockers to find they are not locked. Nothing of value is found in the lockers so Helm pushes them back into one of the small rooms. Ebon successfully unlocks the door and as he unlocks it Tregeon quickly opens the door to reveal a single bed with an opened footlocker at its end, it’s contents removed (that means empty Aaron).
The group decides to follow the people who they believe quickly left the area and find themselves in a deadend hallway with a huge naturally formed cavern to the east of the corridor. Ebon sneaks into the room and once he finds it to be empty he calls for the group to come in. In the northern area of this massive room is a pile of lavishly made a beautifully colorful pile of pillows. In the southern section of the room are several cages with manacles and a small tattered shirt. Ebon calls the group over and they determine that the people left in a hurry with the childern. As Zanlin checks the pile of pillows he notices a pair of lips appearing on the wall and tells Zanlin, “You have made an enemy of the Eyes of Waterdeep, beware and watch your back, for we strike silently and quickly.” It then disappears.
Another pair of lips shows up ad says, “The eyes are always watching, beware.” as Zanlin makes his way around the room. As he moves to the southeastern part of the room another pair shows up on the wall and says , “The eye will be your downfall and final defeat.”
(Angie tries to talk Rob into a trip and the group agrees that they should)
The group continues down the hall after investigating the large room and find a ladder back to the streets and docks of waterdeep, In a dirty backalley. A couple beggers are at the end of the alley. Ebon and Zanlin descide to question the beggers about anything they have witnessed with a platnum a piece the beggar says he fears the eyes and they always watch him. After questioning the second beggar the group finds that the people the group is chasing went past the 1st beggar about 10 minutes earlier. Tregeon and Helm make a harness out of some rope to pull the Hyena out of the underground tunnel. They succeed in getting it out and Helm names it “Smokey”.
They decide to return to the Devils Fire Tavern to find a sign on it saying, “Closed”. The group ignore the sign and Ebon picks the lock. THe party enters to find it completely abandoned.
The group wanders about questioning some people about if they saw the group with the children to find no information. The beggar that got the platnum enters the door of the tavern and gets a drink. He calls to Mara, “Bar wench …some food.” To which Ebon adds, “Go on bitch.” Mara looks at both with a stern angry look but Tregeon whispers to her, “Be nice, we need him to talk.” SO Mara enters the kitchen area and prepares a meal for the beggar. As this is taking place in the tavern Zanlin is waiting on the roof of the tavern, while invisible, Before the spell wears off Zanlin tries to get the rocking beggar to talk again by whispering to him telling him to talk to the players.
Helm talks to the beggar with the pebbles and finds out his name is Red, loves the color red. He loves red gemstones. The beggar offers Helm a tube of salami for the ring.
(Smoke break granted by DM)
Helm takes the gold ring with red bloodstones and gives it to Zanlin to try to get the beggar to speak to the group. Zanlin puts the ring on the beggars hand and the beggar turns to a building 4 structures down and gives a dead stare. The group decide to investigate the two story abandoned warehouse. Ebon sends Sprocket down to the building to investigate a little closer, the owl flys around the building and over it and does not see anything out of the ordinary. The group decides to use a stealthy 2 prong approach that they codename “Shocker”. Ebon cast invisibility on Tregeon , Helm and Smokey as Zanlin cast it on himself and Mara.The time is now near 9:30 PM as the group puts their plan into action. Helm cast darkvision on the two fighters. Zanlin, Mara, and Tregeon approach the double doors to the front and Ebon, Helm and Smokey approach the side door. The party finds both doors are locked, Ebon is able to easily pick the side door’s lock but the double doors become an obstacle for the others. Ebon has to walk around the building to unlock the double doors at the front and then returns to Helm and the Hyena. The group decides to try and enter as quiet as they can.
Time 12:15 AM
Zanlin slowly enters the double doors to find a huge 60 foot square room with two doors on either side of the north wall. The room is completely empty so Zanlin motions to Tregeon and Mara to come on in and to close the door. They decide to go to the northeast door. Ebon tries to enter the door as quietly as he can to open up into a very small 10X20 rectangular room with some basic plain furnishings with one single window with one door directly across from the door they came through. Zanlin opens the northeast door and find themselves in a smaller room with a door straight across and a door to the left. It is lightly furnished with simple dusty items. Taking the door to their left Zanlin, Mara and Tregeon enter another smaller room with a door to their left and right. As the group enters they can hear a slight sound of a conversation coming from behind the door on their right.
Time 12:30 AM
Ebon and Helm continue their search and open the door on the opposite door to find a hallway. As they enter the hallway the find a door on their right and another further down the hallway on the left. They investigate the door to the left to find a room that was at one time a kitchen area. They decide the enter the other door to find a completely empty room with two doors on the southeast wall and southwest wall.They stop as they hear sound coming from the door on their right, a conversation of everyday concerns. Zanlin decides to move some chairs to try and lure the people into the room he and Mara and Tregeon are in. The sound draws one of the men, who thinks the sound of beggars. THe group decide to try and knock the humanoid out. As the man enters the room Tregeon strikes the man with the pommel of his sword, knocking himm to the ground. As this happens Mara quickly gets her rope out and begins to tie him up. Hearing footsteps moving away from the door infront of him, Helm opens it to see a figure across the room he opens up into running through another door on the far wall.
Time 12:51 AM The Chase Begins
Helm follows the figure with a double move and releases his Hyena. He gets to the far side of the room and sees stairs leading down. Tregeon opens the door and sees the open door on the far wall and decides to use his boots of speed and in a flash is at the door looking down the stairs. The stairs are more spiral than straight down. Mara continues to tie up the knocked out figure. Ebon enters and runs towards Tregeon and descends the steps. Zanlin leaves the room and checks the closed door to discover stairs going up to the 2nd story and then closes the door. Helm descends down two flights down the stairs. Tregeon, using his boots of speed, descends the stairs 50 feet and sees that the stairs go another 10 feet and opens into a room. Mara finishes tying up the man and gags him with part of the hemp rope. She enters the larger room and Zanlin tells Mara where everyone went so she takes a double move towards the door and Zanlin follows. As Ebon descends the stairs he slows down and steps into the shadows. Helm gets to the bottom of the steps He sneaks further into the room as he is invisible and can count at least 12 humans half of which have crossbows trained towards the stairs with the other half wielding swords. Mara makes her way to the steps and begins her descent as Ebon moves off the steps 10 feet and cast sunburst into the room. Blinding many of the humans and sending them into a cluster of confusion as they scream in pain.
Time 1:33 AM
Helm enters the room and cast Firestorm into the room. As he enters he sees that only 4 remain and they fall to the ground after his spell. Sixteen bodies lay scattered on the floor of this huge room. Tregeon opens the door to the right and the two of them see a huge beholder with a single eye floating off the ground. It says “COngrats, you have earned the wrath and deathwish from the Eyes of Waterdeep and we will have our revenge.” Little Johnny it chained to the wall behind where the Beholder disappeared and under some type of sleeping spell. Ebon uses his transmuter stone to heal the boy. He runs to Zanlin calling him “Uncle Zani”
