The AdventureToday's session began in the Dracolich's Lair. Finding a six food diameter tube of water running through two walls of the room, the party decided to do a bit of back tracking and head through the door to the east. Successfully navigating the friction-less hall with two 50 foot ropes tied together to last the length, they opened the door.
On the other side was a large open cavern. Stepping to the edge of the platform, the party saw a 50 foot drop and 50 foot ceilings. The floor was a roiling mass of boiling mud with two large geysers. The party took slight damage from the steam that shot from the geysers, and Morgoth managed to make it through to a branching hallway.
Most of the party hopped in the bag of holding and Thea flew over. At the end of the hall was the lair of the vampire Ctenmllr. The room had a permanent darkness spell cast on it. After a slight bit of taunting, combat began. Ctenmllr jumped out of the darkness and attacked Lórien.
The party quickly opened a way for Theavara to use her mighty Sunbeam against the Arch Vampire. Beam after beam cut the vampire to shreds. As the final blow from Grimthain dropped to zero HP, it turned to mist. Escape was futile at this point. The sunlight emitting from Thea killed off the undead threat.
The vampire was guarding a rather large and powerful treasure horde. The party found it under his destroyed coffin.
The party chose to again hop into the bag of holding and Lórien ferried them across to the other side of the cavern. There they saw a large iron bound oak door. The door was, as usual a bit swollen from the dampness of the cavern and was slightly difficult to open.
Lórien sent Morgoth on ahead and noticed a group of giant apes. With a killer opening volley, Thea dumped a spike growth in the center of the room, and Lórien followed with a cloudkill cast from the Book of Infinite Spells. The apes at the back began to retreat and the front line advanced. Grimthain struck the first killing blow.
The party was surprised to see the ape trainer blast an Eldritch Fire into their midst. As the apes retreated from the cloud and the thorns, the adventurers followed. With a mighty blow from Khamalkhad, the fight ended (just as Cad got into place to bash the trainer's brains in).
