The Black Temple.

We last ended with us deciding we would go to this Black Temple. So we set out right after breakfast and followed the trail that they said would lead us to the Black Temple, and on the trees they had all the bark chewed off, and big tracks on the ground. We first thought trolls or ogres so we kept a good lookout. The rangers eventually spotted the Black Temple up on a big hill so we made camp a little ways away from that hill and around a rock so the we were not in sight of the Temple. But in the middle of the night we smelled a horrible smell. And then charging around the rock are two giant trolls, the people asleep were getting woke up and the people awake had to roll initiative! The trolls were not taking much damage (trolls regenerate health) were as Shy was getting 6 hits a round. Then the magic came the sleeping people were finally up but it was to late Shy had passed away! We finally killed the trolls and reanimated Shy but wow that was just a wandering monster I wonder how bad the temple is. We got some rest so the fighters could regain health and the magi-users could regain their spells. So next morning we decided to leave Meat-Shield 1, The Hawk and the horses at camp while the rest of us went into the Temple. When we approached it there was this ramp that lead up to it we climbed halfway and gave Digit the invisibility ring and sent him up to scout the entrance. The Temple was three levels the bottom level was the biggest and the second was a little bit smaller and the top was the smallest. When Digit got to the entrance he noticed that the entrance was a big hall with no door just a hall and the way to get up to the  hall is going up a ramp that goes over the first two levels (the entrance was into the top level). When Digit got into the temple he searched the ground and looked around he saw some gnoles further back in the temple and around him was all these norkers and in the far back there were these stairs and some norker leaders. Digit came back to us and we put together a plan. We cast silence on a rock and send Mr. Moore up holding it so the monsters couldn't hear him walking. Then Digit came up with all the fighters and Mr. Moore threw the rock back to Digit so the monsters couldn't hear the fighters. Then Mr. Moore shot a sleep into the room putting a bunch to sleep and the siege began! All of a sudden there was all these swords and clashing all over the room our thiefs ran up to all the sleeping guys and started cutting them up while our fighters went to either side were a lot of the awake guys are and our magic-users stayed back and got their spells ready when a net right over the hall came down on the magic-users NNNNOOOOOOOO!!! We are doomed! Digit checked the ground not the walls or ceiling! Then our thieves started taking a beating from the monsters because they were up front were the sleeping guys are so they were in trouble and our magic-users were trying to crawl out of net while being beaten by a bunch of norkers and our fighters couldn't stand a chance against them on by themselves! And on top of all that some norkers went down the stairs to get reinforcements! But then Mr. Moore's brownie said were you want to go boss Mr. Moore told him in a corner of the room and then he teleported to that corner and Mr. Moore got a lightning bolt ready. The fight went on the fighters taking in more and more damage the thieves almost dead and the magic -users struggling to get out of the net! Then Mr. Moore's lightning bolt went off and took out at least 4 or 5 norkers then at that moment the norker leader saw it got some troops and went straight towards Mr. Moore but he got a fireball and took out the leader and his troops! Then the magic-users got out and got some sleeps ready. The fighters took out some more norkers and gnoles but the reinforcements were about to come!

The Gnomish Vale

 Last time we ended with seeing the hill people up ahead and coming to a halt. We decided to send Grumble up ahead with the invisibility ring. So Grumble heard they were talking about us and went back to the group and told them that we should just talk to them (because we have made friends with hill people before as a madder of fact that is were we got our rangers). So that's what we did and we told them that we were going to the Gnomish Vale and they said that they were friends with the gnomes and that they would be happy to bring us there.  When we were greeted by lots of gnomes and taken to their king so we could ask him about trade with Borovia, and the Caverns of Soykanth  (were this Demonomicon book is). So when we talked about trade they agreed, and they told us that the sword I Leonidas was looking for was inside a rock and the rock was taken by giants to a black temple. But when talked about the caverns they said they were forbidden to tell us and they said that they would take care of these "miscreants" (he means the Witch, Sirus Maxamus, and Calsidius). While Consantine says ya like you took care of those giants who took the sword.  Then the king went storming off to bed. And the next day we decided to go take care of the giants that took the sword to make peace with the gnomes so they could tell us were the caverns are. So we told them that we are going to these giants and they said that they would be happy to tell us were the caverns are after we killed the giants...

The Giants.

Okay, I was sick last game but I do know that we killed some hobgoblins and didn't find the Gnomish Vale. But did spot it thanks to Boris the druid's hawk he's training. Its only about eight hexes away, the only problem is finding the path to it. So we went on with our journey. There was an intersection up ahead. When we got to it we saw GIANT tracks on the path, so we figured there is some giant up ahead. We made camp on some hills away from the tracks. In the middle of the night we heard trees falling and giant foot steps, and then they just came to a halt and went way off in the other direction. Then later in the night we heard the same thing only there were multiple ones and this time they didn't run away. We heard them trying to tip toe it sounded like tip toe, tip toe, "hahahahaha", tip toe, tip toe, "hahahahaha". We noticed one of them was sneaking behind us and the other two in front. All the fighters ran up front and started beating up the two front giants while Grumble slipped on the invisibility ring and back stabbed one of the front giants. The front giants were down in no time but the back one took awhileto take down. Once he saw our fighters turning around with bloody swords, and his friends dead he ran. Mr. Moore shot a lightning bolt and took him to the ground then our fighters finished him off. The giants themselves didn't have very good loot but once we found their cave we got copper, gold, and silver. We then started on our journey again and our rangers spotted hill people up ahead...

By the way.

By the way we switched over to ad&d so Grumble will be a full time thief, so he and the other thieves can now back stab for triple damage!

Here are some things to catch up on.

Okay, I am sorry I haven't been posting I have been playing Skyrim and our computer was broken for a while. But I am going to be blogging again and there is a lot of stuff to catch up on. So I will start with Ravenloft. We finished it and we cleared it out. Now it is ours, we also got some new recruits named Constantine, a wizard and Boris, a druid. We also have two rangers known as Meat Shield 1 and Meat Shield 2.  We heard that Calsidius and Sirus Maximus are working together to find a book called the DEMONOMICON and so was the witch. I was thinking man, Soap would have loved this(Soap loved chaos). Apparently an evil witch called Ingvilve (I think that's how its spelled) made the Demonomicon and now word has it that all these bad guys want it because it can summon DEMONS.  Now we have found out from Srahd's writings that it is in Ingvilve's caverns and Ingvilve's caverns are around a Gnomish Vale, so we set out into the mountains to find it. Oh, and there was one thing I forgot Soap and a few other guys died and now we have Digit and Leonidas I play Leonidas a greek paladin! Leonidas got a magical war horse on a quest, and he got a vision of an eagle flying to a magical sword that we think is around a gnomish village. I thought oh Holy Avenger!
