The Trap Finders continued their assault on the Citadel’s tower, silently taking out several guards before breaching the topmost floor and facing the commanders. The vicious vampiress, her wraiths, and her spawn caused the party a tremendous amount of trouble, even dominating Bodin long enough for him to strike and bloody Lyr.
Loyalties shifted wildly when a Herald of Hadar appeared, disrupting the fight and apparently seeking the mysterious item Lyr now carries in her bag of holding. Gunder’s suspicions about Lyr’s moral compass were only heightened when, instead of attacking the herald, she tried to reason and negotiate with it— even as it was lashing out at both her and her companions.
Towards the end of the fight, Paithan finally rescued a non-combatant maid who attempted to kiss him in her zealous thanks. But when her kiss of domination didn’t land, she fled for the window, making a cryptic remark to Lyr seconds before she flew out the window.
Bodin finally lost all his marbles, joining Lyr in the “we’re driving each other crazy” train.
The adventure was played on Sunday, March 27th. Paithan, Gunder, Bodin, Lyr, and Elisanada participated. Party rewards included 1600 XP, 900 gp, and magical treasure items to be disclosed as soon as you create wishlists for your characters!
