Fighting down below the secret door

Malyth-icon.gif Malyth Caused a chain reaction in the hall with the exploding skeletons, though he did hurt his allies in the process. Giving Eliam Brody the potion found last week, he attempted to repent for his actions in the proccess.

Thaddeus-icon.gif Thaddeus made liberal but borderline ineffective use of the Disrupt Undead spell.

Dario-icon.gif Dario: After we wiped out the crowd of walking dead, we spoke with Eliam Brody, a holy man of Belinos. He shows us that he is possession of soulstones and tells us that they lock away undead spirits. He believes that this is all the work of a necromancer of great power, named Kalyan. Kalyan is an agent of Balor, the god of undeath.

Sala strung up, party falls down

Dario-icon.gif Dario: My cat-like reflexes save me from falling into the pit but the same cannot be said for my rehabilitated friend Thad. The trap seals itself, locking him below with monsters. I tie rope around my waist and tap my foot on the trap, intent on lowering the rope down, however my weight was off and tumbled to the bottom.

Malyth-icon.gif Malyth In a heroic attempt to save his friends from almost certain death, Malyth flung himself into the pit trap, after securing a rope with a piton in the wall behind him. After stopping within inches of the spikes at the bottom in a nipple-bruising jerk, he managed to provide a line for his friends - and himself- to climb back up on.

Room of doom!

Malyth-icon.gif Malyth, also believing that the best way to deal with the mysterious necromancer, poisoned him. Hopefully, there were severial doses of Nightshade in the drink that the scythe-weilding enemy consumed, and it will cripple him. Now he must face Dario-icon.gif Dario, the paladin. While poison use was regretable, it was neccesary.

The scythe man did manage to bring Malyth-icon.gif Malyth down, but he was returned to conciousness by Nict-icon.gif Nict, using Malyth's only remaining potion. All the while, Nict-icon.gif Nict destroyed the candles in the corners in the room, which had some effect on the necromancer. What effect that was is still unclear, but it did help to sway the tide of the battle in our favor.

Though the necromancer managed to escape, Malyth-icon.gif Malyth did deal massive amount of damage to him with his touch, spending all of his remaining spells in shocking grasp and one Grease. Hopefully, when next they meet, Malyth can finish the battle that he helped to start.

Dario-icon.gif Dario: At the end of the hallway we find a doorway that is impenetrable to our light sources. As everyone debates I tie a rope around my waist and stride forth. Tarralon bravely follows. The room before us is littered with gore and parts of bodies. The walls are lined with meaty walking dead and two handmaidens stand next to an altar. Behind the altar is our villain. As I stride forward I slip slightly on gore and bile rises. For the first time in a long time, I feel a bit of fear. I tell Tarralon to seek the others and move forward to challenge the foe.

Nict-icon.gif Nict: When we entered the room, we found the necromancer, Kalyen. He had quite the presence... & an army of zombies... I felt the same magic from the torches on the wall as I did from the candle upstairs. It felt wrong so I destroyed them although it cost me all my magical power to do so. It seems to have had a positive effect as the undead seemed to wither away without the unholy light.

Also, Malyth-icon.gif Malyth tricked the necromancer to get closer to him. When monster got wise to it he struck Malyth-icon.gif Malyth down. Luckily, I found a healing potion among this things & gave him a reviving dose.
