Artifact Hunters: The End Of The Road

Game Date: 3/12/2011
DM: Nick

The Party (Level 6):

Anna Bella (Leigha) - Halfling Monk
Marek the Silver (Rusty) - Dragonborn Paladin
Morigan McBane (Jesse) - Human Artificer
Talindra Seryth (Matt) - Razorclaw Shifter Avenger

The Session:
Our last session left off with us deciding not to kill the harmless children and elders of the Tiamat cult.  Since we didn't slaughter any helpless people (as much as we wanted to), the DM gave us some extra XP.  Plus they gave us some advance warning about the spawn of Tiamat, elsewhere in the caverns.  So the moral of the story, kids, is don't be a douche.

After getting a full night's rest, we set out to find the Tiamat spawn.  The spawn turned out to be a Blackspawn Doomweb Spider, which could have been a formidable opponent had the dice fallen a bit differently.  As it was, the fight only lasted a few rounds.  Tal used her Sequestering Strike to teleport it into a more strategic position.  It tried to flee across a river of acid, but Anna Bella flew after it.  Morigan and Anna critted on the final two hits of the battle, doing some massive damage.

After the battle, Anna found an illusory wall, hiding some treasure.  We also discovered a waterfall leading to an underwater tunnel, which Anna explored and found even more treasure.  Finding nothing else of value in this dead end, we retreated to an earlier point in the mines.

After more exploration, we discovered a hidden crack in the cavern wall.  We went through it and found a tunnel leading to the final encounter of the campaign.  In a room filled with sparkly geodes, the armor we sought hung suspended in the center of the beautiful rock formations.  It was guarded by several Kruthiks.  We knew that the story was coming to a close, so we didn't hold back.  We exhausted our dailies and our action points.  We used area affect spells and burst attacks.  Marek challenged almost everything in the room, so the rest of us took very little damage.  The DM kept making low attack rolls, and by the end only Marek was bloodied (and even him just barely).  We finally killed the last kruthik, and claimed our prize.

After the battle, we freed the magic armor, and found a way to teleport back to town.  Our quest now over, we finally got some well-earned rest.
