Session 8

Medusa and the Cultists (2014-Dec-17)

  • loot + short rest after Gnoll Eradication
    • found/identified/attuned Boots of Elvenkind (→ Enzo), Wand of Binding (→ Wart), longsword +1 (Hoth)
  • went through secret door into what turns out to be a temple of evil cultists
  • found a Medusa imprisoned
    • negotiated her release; she gave us 5 potions to cure a petrified person and promised us one item per person from her network in Brava (blood hand griffiti)
    • also mentioned the cultists were planning to sacrifice her to their god, a “Great Old One”
  • retreated to Hobgolin cave for long rest (and level up), then returned to temple
  • scouted rooms, slaughtered acolytes, ignored zombies/skeletons
  • Enzo cast Silence on second-to-last room of higher-level acolytes to take them out quickly before charging the boss in his private chambers and defeating him; all undead collapsed on his death
  • found Staff of Smacking (→ Enzo), mace +1 (→ Ooli)
  • only one room left… a crypt with six sarcophagi, barred from the outside (our side)

All chars advanced to level 4 after the Medusa encounter.
