Episode 53: The Double-Edged Sword[edit | edit source]
The Party[edit | edit source]
Van Richten's Eyes[edit | edit source]
Back in the ritual room, Van Richten is on the ground, unmoving. The heroes check on him. He's alive. They take off his goggles. Smoke billows out of his empty eye sockets.
The Bugbears[edit | edit source]
Diath and Strix head down a hallway, trying to figure out what to do. They realize that there are creatures lying in wait for them up ahead. Four bugbears step out of the shadows. They demand the iron flask.
The heroes aren't giving up the flask. They attack.
Jared has a new amethyst d20. He hopes it rolls well. Natural 20.
Strix drops a fireball on the bugbears, using careful spell so that her allies aren't hit in the blast.
At one point, Diath makes a perception check. What did the amethyst die roll? Natural 20.
Holly rolls a death save. Natural 20.
Gutter[edit | edit source]
Diath takes the sword. The dwarf is disoriented, as if severed from a connection. He's upset. He wants the sword back.
The dwarf shakes it off. He says that he used to adventure with Ashton, and that the sword is meant for his descendants.
The Hand[edit | edit source]
Meanwhile, Paultin goes to the bar. He's got the severed hand out. He plops it on the bar. It comes to life - it has attuned to him. It animates and moves around. It can't fly, but it can move around like a crawling claw.
Strix had told the dao to follow the bad guys. She realizes that she never said for him to come back. It appears that Kuharik has been freed from the flask. Strix is quite perturbed about this. She is rolling around on the ground, groaning.
Shemeshka says she will answer three questions, and then Diath must hand over a key from his key ring. Each time Diath summons her to ask questions, he must hand over a key. Once the keys run out, that's it.
Diath asks his three questions.
- Who made this sword? "I did."
- Why did you make it? It was a gift for a descendant named Dareth.
- He asks about the death curse. Shemeshka says that an evil god-thing might be doing this to rejuvenate itself. She tells him to learn everything he can about Acererak.
Diath gives her a key. She leaves through the portal.
Drawn Away[edit | edit source]
He says that his name is Vorpus Krenner and that he's heard of the waffle crew. Their reputation precedes them.
Escher enters the room. End of session.
