[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 5

Ryfon questioned the horse about what he saw the night we were in the crypt. The horse said it was attacked by big dogs with large claws. Lots of big dogs. Those we took to mean the werewolves that were known to be in the area. Though we had killed a few on our way to the crypt, it almost seems the area was swarming with them. The horse also saw something in the sky. Something big. We sent Marwin…

The dead guards left us sleeved mail coats, helmets, and breastplates. However, when removed from the guards, we see the “people” underneath are putrescent, decaying creatures. Still citizens of the Empire, sure, but nobody you want giving you hand-me-downs. The bodies are dragged into the doctor’s back yard. The doctor? He’s nowhere to be found after the battle in his dining room. Also, two of Larry’s mercenaries are dead. I don’t think he’s exactly a mercenary leader anymore, unless the…

There were yet more plans for assaulting the castle. We figured we ought to reconnoiter the place one more time. However, as we headed to check it out, we heard guards coming our way. We quickly made a plan to lead them to the bandit camp. I was sent ahead to warn the bandits. Gottlieb’s job was to lead the guard to the camp. He messed up. I waited and waited until we heard a shot from the forest. I…

We finally found that rotten wizard Etelka Herzen, or rather she found us. We were at the Shooting Star Inn and decided to check on the boat. On the way out the door, we bumped into none other than weasely Ernst Heidelmann. That one’s been busy since we left him too shy to say two words in a coach. We were on the way out, and he was on his was in, and he heard us talking, and said “about…

We determined to look for the Key of Fire while we were in the crypt. We kept our marching order, with Marwin in the back. It was a slow advance, one by one, across the stone menagerie to the archway on the right. The room was a large pen of some sort. To the east wall was the skeleton of another basilisk chained to the wall. The length of the chain only allowed the creature partial, maybe half, use of…

The Bawdy Countess was patched up as good as we could manage so we could continue to ride her up the river. The destination was Liechtenstein. The wizard and I contracted our first episode of river sickness that knocked us off our feet for half the adventuring day (we were both late logging in on Father’s Day). When I rejoined the group, they had just split up. I joined the half of the group heading to the inn. Gottlieb had…

It was a rough trip down the river back to Underbaum. Besides the near-mortally wounded, a couple of us also started feeling quite ill. We were feverish and bumbling with the canoe oars. I nearly dropped mine into the river on multiple occasions. We came up on huntress, Emmaretta, on her way to Kemperbad. Amazingly, she agreed to come with us by river. I can’t imagine she was attracted by the sick and wounded, so she must have been in…

The skeletons in the hexagonal room stood unmoving. We arranged ourselves into attack formation again, just in case. While we were moving, I accidentally tripped over the tripwire (unlucky disadvantage). Three bars fell down in the hallway behind us, blocking us from retreat. The skeletons attacked. I felt a little guilty that I didn’t attack the skeletons with my big, heavy maul last time. The fighter took them out pretty easily with her large sword, and it looked like I…

Dead bodies lay on the ground in front of the round stone. Smoke wafted from behind. Further from the stone, the ranger found a large claw print…far too large for any of us to feel comfortable exposed. The bodies…their leather armor was shredded by similar claws. The bodies were dressed the same a the Zhentarim we encountered in Baldur’s Gate. They had been working off the same information we had. There were a few holes dug around the south portion…

MOTU: Evil Lyn Idea

MOTU: Evil Lyn Idea

Skeletor is already a powerful magic user. What if Evil Lyn was a vampire, with magic abilities secondary?

 Here’s how you reign that power in a bit: 1) It doesn’t work on Skeletor…for whatever reason (he’s undead, no emotions, too powerful, etc.)

 2) Skeletor’s magic can break the charms she has on others. He is the most powerful evil magic in this scenario. Therefore his minions are safe (Beastman, MerMan, etc.)

 3) None of her thralls would be as powerful…
