By the end of our last session, the group had finished exploring the complex below the moathouse and found it to have been largely abandoned. In the process, they rescued a gnome, Labaash, who joined up with them in their explorations (despite having nothing in the way of gear since his prior captors…Leighton’s group…had taken it all). The group also discovered a sort of tomb of a paladin of Heironeous by the name of Rafael the Righteous. The entrance had been hidden behind a mortared wall that someone, presumably Leighton and his group, had torn down. Inside, sadly, Molly found her brother’s broken, tortured, and flayed body. The suspense regarding whether Griff had survived was resolved. As we ended the session, the group had finished exploring sections of this tomb that others had already gone through but then found a section that looked completely untouched for many years. We ended the session in the middle of their exploration of this section.
RJ is now playing Labaash, a gnome thief, given the death of Griff. There are definite spoilers for T1 The Village of Hommlet below the break. I also grabbed one of Dyson’s maps and borrowed some stuff from different adventures I’ve read for the “tomb.” This recap is from Forest and my comments, as usual, are in [brackets and italics].
