He requested that they recover an ancient tapestry from the depths of the Egg of Evad. He explained that he is prevented from recovering it (as a spellweaver) but that they could find and retrieve it for him.
In exchange, he would grant them each a boon.
As part of the roleplaying, I had the boys request a boon from him. Here's what they came up with (not a bad list; quite reasonable)
- Boss, hobbit fighter, wants a magical bow
- Deogol, human cleric, wants a powerful cleric scroll
- Yoson, elf wizard, wants a powerful wizard scroll
- Lokir, elf archer, wants elven mail
The spellweaver agreed and they were on their way. He fed them a magical meal so they wouldn't need food or drink for seven days. A magical apple provided the same to their mounts. He also gave each character a healing potion (1d8+1)
Here are some pictures from Saturday's adventure. I used my Dwarven Forge Game Tiles for the first time. They were a big hit. It is amazing how claustrophobic rooms are when the thickness of walls is considered. :)
The adventurers headed down, down, down using the elevator room and were presented with a locked secret door. (I provided a math puzzle, which my grandson solved almost instantly...) :)
The elf and hobbit drop their bows and switch to melee! They hold the zombies back and kill one.
The wizard, against the advice of the party, decides to throw darts at the last remaining zombie.
He gets to throw three darts --
He rolls 16, 17 and 18 for his "to hit" rolls! All hits! The zombie goes down with darts IN ITS FACE!! :)
A good time was had by all!
