The Otherworld Saga - Session 4
Where We Use Our Words, Not Fists... Kinda

The large mummy lord screams, “Zaridar! I will destroy you!!

The group attacks the mummy lord, triggering the a slime to attack. The slime was later named Eggbert Slime II. Jaquiche grabs an amulet from the neck of the mummy lord. Behind the group comes two undead monsters. Abrioxiell casts a pit of tentacles to hold them in place. Delebon goes to fight the two newcomers while the rest of the party focus on the mummy lord. A couple of the party members attempt to talk to the mummy lord as they attack. Rahd opens a hole beneath the mummy and the forces the mummy into it. Jaquiche puts on the amulet and something weird happens to him with black veiny stuff appears on him and then recedes. All but Delebon see this.

The group continues fighting the Eggbert and the mummy lord. The mummy lord demands “WHERE IS HE” Abrioxiell tries to detect thoughts and finds out that it is sentient, and is mostly thinking angrily of something that looks like himself. The group continues fighting and trying to talk with the mummy lord. The mummy lord does not respond except to demand where is he.

Trib tries to use her powers of persusion to convince him to stop. It does not work. The mummy blinds Rahdimur and moves to between Delebon and the two wizards. Rhadimur tries to put him in a bubble but fails. Nia blasts him with a radiant light and then vacates the area.

Abrioxiell steps up to the mummy lord. He says “Hold still, we are trying to help you.” and casts mind blast. Delebon is caught in the blast but resists. All the monsters are stunned from the blast. Abrioxiell tells them that he wants to help but they need to stop hurting the group. The mummy lord tells him that if they are his allies, they will tell him where the one he seeks is. Delebon leaves the melee range and stands between the mummy lord and the wizards.

The monks finish off the slime in an epic punch that vaporizes it and regroups with the rest. Trib attacks the two regular sized undead. Rahdimur casts the nullifying bubble around the mummy lord and succeeds. Rahdimur asks that the mummy lord calm down and talk this out. The group tries to find out from the mummy who is the mummy looking for, what is going on, etc. One of the smaller undead dies from the tentacles and the other dies from hellish flames extending from Trib. Obi-tu asks the mummy lord who he is. The mummy lord responds that he rules this domain, the Golan Caves. TBC

Owl and the Pussycats

Rhad casts a protection spell so everyone can relax and sleep undisturbed.

Short break for DM led heart-to-heart of what each of our characters think/feel about each other. Info is to be kept on a meta level. Very hilarious insights and reactions ensued.

After the rest, the party looks at the bones again before backtracking. Abe takes one hand, and we throw the other down the endless well. Trib takes a look around while the rest goof off. There is a hidden door.

After disabling traps, the group finds a hallway with a chest and a slime. Jaq runs on the ceiling, tries to grab the chest but finds it stuck to the ground, AND THEN PUNCHES IT OUT OF THE GROUND. He then returns with it to the group who begins fighting the slime (who we named Bob the Gelatinous Pee Puddle). We defeat the Bob, find out the chest has snakes and..

Are They in the Upside Down?

Jaquiche and Obi-tu appear in the portal pool. Neither recognize each other. There is no one else in the room. Jaquiche inspects Obi-tu and offers to shake hands. Jaquiche tries to flip Obi-tu and Obi-tu reflexively counters. Obi-tu introduces himself and Jaquiche, who doesn’t remember who he is, assumes he is like Obi-tu.

Zizi walks up and Jaquiche asks who they are. Zizi responds that she finds it interesting that he doesn’t remember.

Jaquiche and Obi-to cross staffs in friendly camaraderie and walk to the table. Jaquiche can see a northern door, and eastern door, and a well. After moving closer to the well, he noticed a large door. They toss a rock into the well.

~The large group

As Delebon opened the door, there’s a skittering sound behind the group. There was a rock that came out of the well and landed a couple feet from the well. Everyone pauses for a long second. The old man, who remembers that his name is Rahdimur, sends his floating eyeball down the well again. There is nothing different.

~The monks duo

Obi-tu makes a torch so he can see. Jaquiche and Zizi are looking at the well.

~The large group

After determining that it was weird but nothing to be done about it, the group goes ahead and opens the door. There is a shelf extending from the doorway and ending in a drop off. To the side is a wooden ladder. Rahdimur flies on a broom down to the floor beneath the drop off.

A couple of rust monsters come out of the darkness and attack. While Rahdimur fights the two, another comes out of the dark. Trib runs forward and shoots a rust monster. The tentacled person, who’s name is Abrioxiell, shoots a ray of frost and eats the soul of the rust monster. He reels and starts convulsing after consuming the soul. Delebon sees this and gets freaked out. Rahdimur turns his magic vision and sees Abrioxiell’s souls trying to split and seperate before reforming into a single soul.

There is a sound of another rock coming out of the well. Delebon and Trib go to investigate. Rahdimur can see from his new vantage that the room extends into a hallway. He sends a ball bearing down into the well via Mortimer the owl.

~The monk duo

Jaquiche and Obi-tu travel through some already opened double doors and down the drop. There is several decayed husks that are of long dead monsters. They walk down the hallway that leads off of the room.

~The large group

The group goes down the hallway and finds another double door. Rahdimur sends his eyeball into the room through the gap under the room. There are two gargoyles on pedestals and a chest in between them. Trib and the silver skinned woman check for traps and then the group moved into the room, with Delebon leading the way. Delebon starts attacking the gargoyles that came to life. The group fights the gargoyles and win. Abrioxiell tries to eat the souls and again experiences agony and starts twitching.

The group checks the room for traps and open the box. After more investigating more, they discover a mirror in a box in the box. Rahdimur casts identify on the mirror and discovers that it is the mirror of unveiling, which allows you to see beyond this reality. You can use the reflection to see into another place.

~the monk duo

The two monks and Zizi find an open door, two broken statues, and an open box. On one of the statues, they find a collar. There is a couple gems on the collar, and a slot with a parchment in it.

THE MIRROR WILL REVEAL WHAT IS LOST. FACING ITSELF WILL REVEAL THE DOOR

The two monks notice a switch on one of the pedestals. A box pops out of the stone. They open it and dodge the darts that shoot out. Inside the box is a mirror. They look into the mirror and see the room they are in but upside-down.

~The whole group

The group, through much struggle and difficulty, manage to communicate through sight without sound, and use the mirrors to create a portal to allow the two monks through. Sadly, Zizi got left behind. Rahdimur assures Jaquiche that Zizi will catch up.

Trib takes the gems off of the remaining collar. The group discusses how they got there. In the process, Rahdimur finds that he can’t read Delebon’s mind. The monks starts to try a handshake-throw on the rogues at the same time that they try to pickpocket. Both fail and tensions rise.

Rahdimur casts contact another plane, and contacts a local deity who recognizes Rahdimur and tries unsuccessfully to cut off the connection. He asks why he can’t read Delebon’s mind. The deity responds that it is because of something Delebon has. There is a giant influx of power as the deity inspects Rahdimur. Rahdimur asks if he can trust Delebon. The deity responds that Delebon is wondering if he can trust Rahdimur and the deity begins to cast a spell. Rahdimur asks why Delebon is so commited to hiding things about himself. The deity responds that he is sworn to it. Rahdimur turns to Abrioxiell and declares that he won’t question another’s oaths and breaks off the spell.
