When we left off last week, a friendly brain was about to teleport us into a pocket dimension, which is not a sentence I've had to type very often. We arrived in the Dark Forest, standing by a trail that led to the Black Keep. The keep was a fine example of bizarrchitecture, with many wings that had been added with no structural support, stubbornly refusing to obey the laws of gravity.
All the while we were still playing keep away with the grub swarms. Carlie hit them with spell after spell, until they finally dissipated. The final Wyvern perched on top of the keep, and Tai tried her mounting trick again. This time she rode the Wyvern into an area behind one of the keep's walls, out of our view. When the Wyvern finally resurfaced and attacked the main party, Slancio finished it off.
Slancio cast Knock at the front door, alerting Tai so she could join the fight. First we ganged up on the Manananananawhatever, until Tai killed it. This left us with just the fogs. They only had +2 to their attack rolls, so it looked like an easy fight... until Fellany failed a fear save, fleeing until she opened the next door, triggering the next encounter early. This side room held a porcupine-person called a Pukwudgie, and four Wights.
Once the fogs were gone we did a little healing and started to make some progress. Bjertha, Slancio, Meruca, and Tai each killed one Wraith, and Meruca finished off the porcupine guy. We ended the session there, licking our wounds and taking stock of our immediate surroundings. We would really like at least a short rest, but in this hostile dimension it might not be in the cards.
