Adzeer Mattiu, Hunter of the Second Circle (Half Orc, Hunter): Tim (Gothridge Manor)
Duncan Kern (Gnome, Wizard/Thief): Dan
Luven Lightfinger (Human, Thief): Rob (Bat in the Attic)
We took a month break from the Montporte Dungeon Campaign and did some other things...a few session's in Chris's (The Clash of Spear on Shield) Ephemera setting and some playtesting of Rob's (Bat in the Attic) embryonic Fudge-based system for his Majestic Wilderlands setting. But now we are back to the dungeon.
Session 25 ended with the brave adventurers leaving the dungeon and heading back to the town of Montporte for some rest and recuperation. And shopping. Lots of shopping. Session 26 was all about shopping. Well, maybe not all about shopping. There was some tavern hijinks involving Luven, some serious selling of demon organs [no details here, as I am family friendly], a conversation by Adzeer with a fellow hunter, and the purchase of a house.
The party celebrated their return with dinner at The Blue Unicorn (#15 on the map above). Luven ordered food and drinks on house. Word spread and the place filled up. Luven took the opportunity to cut a purse, which garnered some gold pieces and a Ring of Mind Shielding [a lucky roll by the GM].
Duncan did some serious shopping at Nevin's Notions (#13). He also added some spells to his spell book under the tutelage of Pavel (#21).
Adzeer Mattiu shopped for potions, picked up a magic short bow and arrows for Little Larry, Adzeer Mattiu's kobold companion from Jenson the Fletcher.
Adzeer Mattiu also had the conversation of the night with Adzeer Derriq, a fellow hunter. Adzeer Derriq lives in Twerpshoppleville, a small hamlet just outside the town walls of Montporte. Adzeer Derriq told Adzeer Mattiu that the black blobs the party met up with in Session 1 and Session 24 were not demons. Rather, they were aberrations from Ioucura, the plane of madness [for more information, read On the Planes]. Adzeer Mattiu also told Adzeer Derriq about the demons they fought, including the three they were unable to defeat, which left the party wondering how they could overcome them.
Adzeer Derriq offered to help his brother hunter by lending him a weapon past on to him from his uncle. Adzeer Derriq brought forth a plain short sword, made of a dull black metal. He explained that is Syvyys' Bane (Syvyys is the plane of demons). The sword has no effect on non-demons. However, against demons, the sword gains +6 to attack and does 6d6+6 in damage. Adzeer Dirriq told Adzeer Mattiu that he had little use for a demon slaying sword, but he would like to have it back at some point.
The party ended the session by doing some planning for their next dungeon expedition. Most of the planning involved figuring out how to use a bag of holding filled with oil. How many pints of oil would it hold (1600)? How could they dump it on a target? How could they ignite it?
