Well today was lots of Fun in our D&D session. We went out of CrossRoads down the road to the south. We found some dead bodies and some dead horses. Tracks were seen by all which was a mix of goblin and someone wearing mail. There were two graves dug and some bodies buried there. There had been a fight of some sort and blood trails ran off in three seperate directions.
We came across an odd woman in mail who told us she was guarding her friends resting places. That they had been attacked by some goblins and that the goblins had run off to the south. Eliada gave her some food and water and we made our way along the south road. We had a map and went to find a keep there. It was at the edge of an ocean and was quite run down.We got there and discovered the door was shut. So our friendly neighborhood rogue pounded on the door and an orc answered. I turned to Shona and demanded that she kill it. The orc heard this and tried to slam the door closed and lock it.
Wacky fun ensued as Jeremy playing Ander tried to shoulder the door open. He hit it twice and I threw Eliada against it twice. She kicked it both times and landed on her ass. I believe that Jeremy finally got the door open well enough that he knocked the orc back behind it. So in we all go as Mike playing his halfling wizard decides to get in another way. Once he does so he goes off exploring the upper stories of the keep. He finds a lot of empty corridors and a crumbled down spire or two. It is dusty there but he keeps on going.
Once inside the outer courtyard of the Keep we fight the orc and eventually kill him off.Our rogue Justin goes off exploring a bit on his own. He finds the kitchen and also a room with 2 goblins in it. He attempts to fight them but they almost kill him. He runs out away from them and down the hallway back to us yelling, “Monsters are behind me.” And indeed the goblins were pursuing him as well.
By this time I, Patrick, as Shona,jeremy were all engaged in killing the orc. I ordered Shona to put the orc’s head on a pike outside the Keep to deter unwanted visitors, i.e. anyone that was not us. She dragged the body out and did as instructed. Then she returned to us.
We had a big bbattle with some goblins later on. A highlight of this session was Justin’s rogue running away from the first goblins in the dining hall rapidly losing blood and banging into a huge gong on the wall as he staggers away from them. “As a result of this our Dm (Jamie) made a musical referral to “Bang the Gong.” I must admit poor Eliada cursed a blue streak at this and other players referred to last session and the gong that everyone hit on their way into the river. “Don’t bang any gongs He enjoys it too much.” Jamie had a great time after that setting us all up with more goblins to fight and deal with We also had a hobgoblin and a wierd bird like creature to deal with as well. Our rogue healed himself somewhat and tried to help us fend off the hobgoblin and the other goblins and the bird creature. We eventually killed them all in that section. Then we had our main boss fight and that took a bit longer. Shona our ranger got down to negative health. But we were able to cap the goblins and I healed her up to a standing position again. She used a healing pot to help herself even further.
Mikeencountered a giant owl which grabbed him and dumped him back down with us. We all healed up and made it to level 3.Yay for us we rock as a group. Now we have a Keep to rebuild and work on which will be fun once we make sure no more bad things are there. As usual fun session guys and it should get even more fun from here. Looking forward to this weekend and the fun we will have then. Jeremy have fun on your trip to the beach next weekend.
