So good bye Seu, you have found the limit of your 32mm... it is time to let the old guard in :
You may have recognised the model on the left is the cleric from the adventurers starter set.
Bufo the Black Hood, lvl 3 Chaotic Evil Halfling Rogue
Bufo is an evil halfling and he maybe the closest thing to a black hole on earth considering how small he is and how black his heart is... Hopefully most of his evil energy is spent on eating and picking Seu whenever he gets the occasion... (Buffo is played by Captain Crooks who happens to be our estimeed DM)
|Bufo the Black Hood|
Robin, Lawful Good Human, lvl 5 Ranger
Robin likes nothing like the open air and the quiet beauty of nature. He suffers the presence of like minded companions but he truly shows his best when left alone in the wild. His instinct of hunter and his cool temper are gold assets for the party (played by Penddraig).
|Robin the ranger|
Rambulge, Neutral Good Human, lvl 2/2 Fighter/Sorcerer
|Rambulge the Spellsword|
Scouting at the entrance of the cavern, the party has managed to lure some of the goblins and their Orc master out by placing some cheese and provisions at the entrance :
|Harbutt, Orc chief|
Into the cave, The party found a deserted place which lead to a store room at the very end of the cave.
In that store room, they found the body of a man which was on the verge of death. The paladin laid his hands on the poor man who woke up and presented himself as Bari, Clerci of Jordann
Bari the White, Chaotic Good Human, lvl 5 Cleric of Jordann
Using Bufo's incredible sneaking abilities, they discoverd the remaining path led to the chamber of a giant ogre magos. Bufo's spying activities unfortunately didn't stay unnoticed and the magos sent some Hellhounds after the Halfling. The crew unprepared as it was suffered some heavy casualties from the encounter. They had to work as a group.
This time, the party was clearly more prepared and the consequences showed rapidly. The fight was won with glory thanks to Rambulge's idea to cast DAZE on the ogre, preventing him to cast another deadly bolt of lighting at the group !
Like after any boss, the companions looted the entire room and took everything they could, (like good murder hobos...) But their victor didn't last long. The door that could lead them further in the cave was protected by a goblin faced knocker :
Amongst all the things they had looted, The party had found a book on which was written "Password is NOT cheese, Password is NOT cheese, Password is NOT cheese, ..."
So cheese was a hint...
The only book about cheese they found in the ogre's bookshelf was a funny one :
Hopefully, the party understood that part of the binding spell was due to the strange staffs in the room. By breaking the jars filled with mana on each pillar, the party lessened the effect of the spell and managed to kill the remaining imps.
The companions were all severely burnt after that and though they took the time to heal the best they could, they quickly followed Waldemar...
The Mouse was leaving through a strange portal and it invoked a mighty demon before doing so. Bufo (who was once again sent to scout the area first) came back with bad news to the group : they had to help the demon with personnal matters or they would just be sent into the depths of hell...
After an hilarious moment of roleplaying from Gaj, Bari the Cleric managed to solve the demon's sexual troubles and erectile problems. The demon in return granted the party a wish. The wish they made was to be sent towards where the mouse had left....
At this point the companions have been sent to another dimension but this part of the quest is still running.
I cannot emphasise enough how fun this quest has been thanks to all players and to the tremendous work (and drawings) by our Dungeon Master so I really wish to thank them all.
I tried to stay very factual because the jokes and silly situations are so numerous it would be impossible to tell them here without breaking the charm. There has been some very excellent roleplay here and all characters are really full of charm
If you have some time and you want to see a very nice and to,gue in cheek story take life, I strongly suggest you read the quest as it took place on the forum. All non-funky bits (like battle stats, player's actions and games mechanics) are hidden by spoiler marks so that you can only enjoy the roleplay part if you want to. Reading some of the quest notes will be very intersting to those who have already played DnD and want to see how to do it via a forum for example.
The next part of our adventures has taken the group to another dimension and we may have gained so new friends in the process !
I'll tell you about it when the party has moved on a bit more (and when all our characters have their models ready).
