Unlikely Heroes: The Blech Cauldron

Game Date: 6/23/2012
DM: Rusty

The Party:
Derp DuDerp (Cliff): Half-Elf Bard
Flora Oakwillow (Matt): Hamadryad Seeker
Keyanna (Chere): Half-Elf Sorcerer
Lo-Kang (Ted): Warforged Barbarian
Marrick (Greg): Dwarf Knight
Starr (Star): Eladrin Paladin

The Session:
After a two-month break from this campaign, we resumed clearing out this dungeon.  Two of us were suffering from Mummy Rot, so we went back to town and got ourselves cured.  Then we returned to the dungeon and went down the stairs to the next level.

Descending the stairs, we quickly noticed that the air down there was barely breathable.  There was a poisonous cloud permeating the entire level.  This gas emanated from a cauldron, which was surrounded by a pool of acid.  We attacked the cauldron until it no longer gave off any gas. 

In the next room we fought a Wax Golem.  He was pretty tough, and had a Rampage power that allowed him to charge through our group, damaging all of us.  He also had a burst attack that activated when he was bloodied, which caused a lot of damage to the party.  He exploded again when he finally died, but due to some poor DM rolls the damage was negligible this time.

Down another hallway we found a round room.  In the center was a crystal containing a robed man, known as "The Hanging Seer".  Lo-Kang asked him a few questions, and he gave us a bit more information about the dungeon.  Then he told us to leave because we were being spied on.  We left quickly.

Next we came to a room with two Zombies and two Ghouls.  They didn't give us too much trouble, though Lo-Kang did spend most of the battle immobilized.  A few rounds into the battle, a Wraith joined the fight.  We finished off the original four foes, but we ended the session before doing too much damage to the Wraith.  The Wraith doesn't do a lot of damage, but it looks like he's going to take a while to kill.  He's insubstantial, so he takes less damage, plus he regenerates.  And most of us are out of Daily powers.  But we should win eventually.

Zombies and Ghouls
We're still in battle.  The initiative order is:
Ted, Chere, Star, Wraith, Matt, Cliff, Greg.

It is Ted's turn.  If I remember correctly, Ted is still immobilized (and probably will be for life).  For our reference, here is where we were standing:

Row 1 (Top): Flora, Starr
Row 2: Keyanna, Lo-Kang
Row 3: Fauna (Displacer Beast)
Row 4: Derp, Marrick
Row 5 (Bottom): Wraith
