He thinks he's awesome though. Big ego. It's going to get him into trouble, but I'm going for it! :)
Here are some pictures from last nights session. I'll add some commentary below.
We entered Undermountain through the Yawning Portal. Shortly thereafter, Ceril the elf archer and Odo the monk discovered a party of dangerous looking individuals lying in wait. I believe they knew we were coming and they were waiting for us. (Some folks in the Yawning Portal were betting heavily against us and were disappointed when we resurfaced alive)
Here's the group of bad guys. Turns out they were really bad -- spider queen tattoos on their foreheads.
The battle begins. Odo goes medieval on some guy called "Max." Knocks him back into the tables and benches. The yellow pipe cleaners represent a Stinking Cloud cast by Tharquinn our MU/C. You can see that a large part of our party in the hall has "red rings" on them. This represents some kind of Enthrall or other spell that held us for awhile. Torn Sunderhelm (with the cape) had to punch Balin the Dwarf and Gorsen to get them to "shake it off." Balin took 8 points; Gorsen 4. Ouch!
It's not pictured, but the tide turned when Gorsen successfully cast Hold Person on the two fighters on the other side of the door. The party finished them off quickly after that.
The evil dwarf cleric cast Hold Person on Gorsen, but Gorsen has an Armband of Free Action and wasn't affected. :)
... I played possum though and held still, drawing the dwarf cleric closer...
Tharquinn appeared on the scene and paralyzed the dwarf cleric with his wand.
... It was at that point that Gorsen "shook off the Hold" He popped his neck, rolled his shoulders, reached over and took the dwarf cleric's Rod of Healing and said,
"My god is stronger than your god." He then finished the dwarf off in the name of Lathander. :)
Side note: Gorsen is seriously getting on the bad side of the Spider Queen. He's blessed her emmisaries as they died to send them to the bright shore of Lathander. At one point, she manifested some kind of "shadow demon" to warn him about his behavior. Yeah right. :)The party got quite a haul of gold and magic from this crew. Unfortunately, a dwarf fighter was scared away by Fear and escaped. We don't know where. :(
We bailed out of Undermountain. Spent about an hour, but we were pretty much out of spells and needed healing.
Three kobolds get into the room, but Tharquinn casts Web down the corridor, trapping 9 kobolds.
Once the imminent thread of three kobolds is taken care of, Gorsen wades into the Webs (Armband of Free Action) and finishes the 9 kobolds off where they are stuck. Of course, they wail like the little dogs they are and reinforcements arrive at the end of the hall...
Great session! More excitement to come!!
