We left off in the dungeon under the Dwarven Monastery. Today's session was mostly combat, as we cleared out more rooms of the dungeon.
First we entered a safe-looking room. Nementah, showing no Genre Savviness whatsoever, stepped on in and was immediately cut down by a scythe blade trap. Starr was knocked down as well, so we started this combat at a disadvantage. We were attacked by 6 undead (2 Ghouls and 4 dog-like creatures called Festrogs). Also, two statues in the room turned out to be turrets, firing deadly projectiles at us.

Next, our DM took the time to draw out a large, detailed central room. But instead of exploring it we immediately took one of the side passages. In a pile of rubble, Flora found a small darkwood sculpture of a fly. It turned out to be an Ebony Fly, which can summon a giant fly mount. We gave it to Keyanna for now.
Down one hallway we heard the sounds of suffering. Peeking into a large room, we saw several undead creatures pushing prisoners into a pit. We fought more Ghasts, Festrogs, and a "Bloody Bones" (a tentacled undead like the one we fought last session). Shortly into the fight, a statue of Ioun came to life, becoming Ted's new character Lokang. He charged into battle, fumbling his first attack roll and hitting himself for 26 damage. It was an embarrassing start, but from then on he proved to be a worthy striker.

We continued exploring hallways. Marrick noticed that this dungeon seemed to be of human construction, which was odd since it was under a Dwarven monastery. At the end of one corridor was a door with prayers carved on it. Inside we found an evil shrine, occupied by an undead mystic named Hymmir.
|Six against one. No sweat!|
|This didn't happen. Maybe next session.|
