Aaron – DM
Patrick – Adrik
Big J – Welby
B – Crumm
Ernie – Cade
Robin – Morgran
Before the session ever begin, there were a few eventful things that need to be noted:
Game play was slowed due to technical difficulties. I have a solution – No one participates via remote because for about 30 minutes we had to hear just how it had to be on B’s end, but after all is said and done — it was the DM that was clueless.
(I believe the party should gain valuable XP for waiting patiently)
Rob started the session off with a BANG as only Rob can! The party was left breathless and gagging!
After Aaron’s second cig in a short time span – Ernie noted that Adeline would have to ask at her wedding, “Daddy, why are you wearing an Iron Lung?”
NOW IT’S TIME TO PLAY THE GAME… (In my best Triple H Voice – Sorry Non-Wrestling Fans)
Started out with a recap of the previous session…
Session begins with the Fearless 5 face to face with a creature that resembles a Beholder. Upon entering the room, the crashing of waves can still be heard, but it was the voice in their heads that stopped them in their tracks. “Hello! YOU NEED TO LEAVE, YOU DON’T BELONG HERE!”
Morgran, never one to shy away from any confrontation, uses his boots of striding and springing to leap over the eery green flame towards the creature. Adrik, being the ultimate team player, casts Bless on Welby, Crumm, and Morgran. Crumm proceeds to miss with a hand axe and Welby misses with his crossbow. The Creature, not liking Morgran’s tactics, attacks and scratches him for 2 pts damage. With the help of Adrik’s Bless, Morgran is able to shake off the powerful ray; Crumm, however, wasn’t so lucky and turns and runs scared towards the door.
It needs to be noted that Ernie’s next turn took at least a solid 10 due to his lack of his action economy knowledge. Not capitalizing his turn, Cade’s witchbolt grazes the ugly beast for 3 pts. damage.
(After a terrible turn, we understand why Ernie was under duress. Searcy was obsessed with Ernie’s feet — this was a problem ALL NIGHT!)
Morgran swings his mighty great axe to the tune of 16 pts damage…Adrik follows suit with his hammer and pounds the beast for 9 pts damage. Crumm finally sends the Eye Tyrant to his death with 9 points from the battle axe. Crumm continues to chop and chop at the Tyrant as it lies motionless on the floor.
Cade uses his proficiency of arcana and discovers that the brazzier is the source of the magic in the cavern.
The party continues to search the room and discover the following:
+1 Breast plate with a golden dragon motief in design
+1 Mace (Light Bringer) – The head of the mace is made of brass. – does 1d6 to Undead
The party barricades the room and has an uneventful long rest.
After the long rest, the party takes full advantage of the eery green flame which has the ability to make non magical items +1 for a short duration.
Adrik, once again being the team player he is, casts light on Welby’s short sword (talking about his weapon)
- The party was enlightened that Al Dente is translated to mean to the tooth!"
The party, continuing on in the cavern, travels across a steep escarpment and heads south down a set of stairs. Morgran listens to the door that leads west, but hears complete silence. He pulls the door outward. Inside, a room has been completely destroyed by some sort of destructive blast.
As the party enters the room, they are greeted by an ethereal figure that whispers:
“Your presence here is offensive to me
Your life forfeit
My treasure is mine alone
Not yours to plunder”
Not heeding to the ethereal’s advice, Welby hits once for 16 pts damage. Not playing very nice, the figure attacks Adrik for 16 pts damage, but Adrik makes the CON saving throw.
Morgran hits for 9 pts damage… Adrik, chooses to not cast a spell, and hits with Light Bringer for 6 pts damage.
Cade, with the newly acquired charges back on his pink wand, shoots 3 pink darts at the figure for 11 pts damage.
Gundren continues with the common theme he’s set
- He does nothing…
Crumm hits for 8 pts damage… Welby, with his magical sword, slices at the ethereal figure for 17 points damage. From the force of Welby’s mighty blow, the Wraith fades way. The party finds a wooden pipe – laiden with platinum and a chest that contains:
3 diamonds (100gp a piece)
3 magical tomes
3 preserved history books
- Thick covers with paper sewn into back cover
- Writing – Side A – Overland Map
– Side B – Other Map
The Fearless Five continue south
Glowing puff balls float in a plant filled room… Welby is poisoned for 9 pts damage causing him to have disadvantage on ability checks and attack rolls.
Crumm decides to lay hands on Welby, which Welby liked way too much, — he’s now cured of the poison.
Crumm lights his lantern and wings flapping is heard…
Crumm feels being hit
Adrik is critically hit and has two Stirges attached to his neck
Morgran is hit by one and it’s attached to his neck
Welby smacked a stirges so hard that he killed it’s offspring
Morgran pulls one off and throws it to the ground… kills it!
Gundren, much to the parties liking, decides to get involved and kills one.
Not sure of why but Cade gives himself the reach around to get off…and couldn’t!
Adrik rips one from his neck, using his power, squishes it! Still leaving one attacked!
Crumm obliterates a stirges!
The stirges tired off the bullying decides to fight back! Morgran is critically bit! Welby, with his short sword, slices and dices another one! Another one bites the dust!
Adrik, still struggling with one attached to his neck, calls on Gundren to help.
“All you have to do is ask” screams Gundren as he drops another Stirges.
Adrik, very low on hit points, channels divinity using his holy symbol! Adrik starts feeling a little more refreshed.
After a couple misses by Crumm and Welby, Morgran’s might great axe chops up another one.
Gundren, starting to show a little life, kills his second Stirges — ending the battle!
Not taking just a brief second to catch their breath, the Fearless 5 continues through the cave. Realizing that the path west returns them to the part where they obliterated the Oozes, the party decides to investigate the door to the North.
Morgran listens intently… hears faint, crunching, and splintering sounds.
Morgran enters the room.
Inside the party encounters a corroded iron brazzier and 3 grey hunched figures gnawing on orc and dwarven bones.
Not wasting any valuable time, Crumm hit for 12 pts damage, Welby follows suit with a crossbow – causing 18 more points damage, and Morgran joins in the fun slashes at one with a great axe for 7 points damage.
The creatures, a little suprised, fight back. They hit Morgran twice for 9pts piercing and 7 pts slashing. After missing Crumm, another attacks Morgran again for 7 more points damage.
Adrik, becoming more comfortable with Light Bringer, brings the pain causing 10 points damage. Cade, flicks his wrist (Welby notices and likes), and 3 pink darts shoot from the wand — 9 points damage. Gundren, trying to help out, shoots and fumbles… Epic failure!
Crumm sets his weapon of fire, hits the creature, and ignites it (17 points damage).
Welby, perfectly executes the stick and move, connects on a crossbow for 14 points damage.
Morgran getting tired of this creature, unable to hold his temper, sets himself into rage and puts and end to one of the enemies life.
His friend, upset that he just watched his buddy die, attacks Crumm, but his resistance to slashing damage causes him only to be scraped! However, he fails a saving throw and becomes paralyzed.
Creature attacks Adrik twice…and misses!
Adrik, still using Light Bringer, misses for the first time with his new weapon!
Crumm finally regains his movement.
Welby, showing off his superior athleticism, springs from the bed to position himself to attack and hits twice, killing another. Welby is turning into a reliable killing machine!
Morgran attacks and hits, takes a chunk out of the only remaining enemy.
Creature attacks… and misses!
4 more creatures show up to help out…
Adrik, thriving in these situations, casts THUNDERWAVE, hitting all four creatures!
Adrik, proving once again he’s a team player, gives inspiration to Morgran.
Cade casts hex on a creature… Eldritch blast casted – 24 points damage.
Gundren misses with his crossbolt.
Crumm, becoming impressive, hits for 16 more.
Welby, not as impressive, scratches the creature for very minimal damage, the creature laughs in mockery!
Morgran attacks and hits for 11 (not sure Morgran has missed an attack roll this session) and uses the Inspiration he gained from Adrik to restore 9 hp to himself. Morgran drops his weapon and picks up his shield.
Creatures, with their plethora of attacks, miss everyone.
Adrik casts Guiding Bolt ending another…
Cade and his Witchbolt connect and he moves his Hex.

Adrik restores HP to the party with a prayer of healing.
Cade, attempting to become proficient with Withbolt, kills the hexed creature.
Adrik, better known as the Punching Bag of the Fearless Five gets hit. In the creatures last ditch effort, he hits Adrik twice for 16 points damage. Adrik immediately disengages and prepares to heal himself. Crumm takes a bite and a critical hit from a Ghoul. Adrik cures wounds on himself and restores 11 hit points. Crumm with his battle axe, ends the battle and finishes off the last Ghoul.
Party manages to get in a short rest restoring hit points and spells by using hit dice. The search resulted in nothing of any value.
Party moves on…
They investigate the south finding two doors on the east and the west. Party mulls it over and decides to head toward the west.
Welby searches and finds a great surprise, but not the one he was hoping to find. He finds bones fused together forming 9 skeletons.
Welby, alerts the other party members, that they’re 9 skeletons.
Adrik causes harmless tremors causing the skeletons to dance.
Crumm kicks open the door. Skeletons attack 4x and miss.
Crumm attacks them for 8 pts damage.
Cade hexes a skeleton and tries Eldritch Blast — misses!
Morgran frenzies and first attack hits for 7 points damage and 15 points on his second attack. Morgran gets the killing started and scatters a group of bones.
Adrik, once again proving that he’s out for the best interest on his team, casts Bless on Morgran, Welby, and Crumm.
Gundren stands pat….again (common theme)
Morgran hits again (no surprise here) – with his War Hammer: Kills one skeleton and badly injures another.
Skeletons attack Morgran for 5
Adrik, waiting to see if any of the Fearless Five need assistance, stands pat!
Cade moves hex, attacks, and creates another pile of bones!
Morgran hits again (ho hummmmmm) – Kills another
- 3 more remain!
Adrik not being able to do anything, causes harmless tremors!
Grundren misses again… Hey Gundren! Welcome to the Battle!
In not so surprising news, Morgran hits again and finishes the Skeletons! Nothing remains in the room but a large pile of bones.
Search reveals nothing!
Party moves across the hall and enters an old office!
Crumm and Morgran find a locked strong box…
Welby, showing his skills, pops the lock easily and reveals its contents:
Welby pops the lock
- Opens the chest
Session ends with the Fearless Five in Office…
