Games are (usually) on Thursday nights sometime after 5:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.
This last week we had a half-sausage, half-pepperoni pizza, extra large double-cut. I forgot what we had the week before.
There are two sessions that cover two weeks Both March 2 and March 9. Both sessions were woefully short, the first week due to Player action, the second due to Player inaction.
++++ START OF 1ST SESSION ++++
The first week the Players ignored the 2nd monster, a creeping Ochre Jelly. Jacko resolved it with the expediency of using his new girlfiend, the Dark Enchantress. (Nominally she is a demon minion from the lower planes including the bat wings. She has done a minor shape change on herself to look human and the bat wings are folded to look like a cloak. She does this so Elefus won't notice and for her dedication to the greater evil.) Anyway, Jacko got her to teleport with Jacko back to where the half dozen 20-sided Modrons were guarding the gem. Teleport back with the gem and the Modrons. Once back, Jack made sure everyone was within the maximum radius of the gem, excluding the approaching Jelly and touched the gem.
Everyone within the radius were gated to another demi-plane and were on top of a natural spire that was 50 foot wide at the top. There was a encirling 50 foot wide steep ramp that led to the bottom of a valley covered with vegetation 200 feet below.
Since the Players had maneuvered themselves to a area I wasn't prepared for I called it a night and we played a game of Settlers of Cataan.
They also decided to utilize their Cube of Opulent Lodging (Model I) to rest for eight hours, heal unhealed wounds and refresh spells.
++++ END OF SESSION ++++
++++ START OF 2ND SESSION ++++
This session was also short because one Player got a case nausea so we didn't get as far as I would have liked.
Refreshed, the party made its way down the hill, to the valley covered from knee to thigh high grass and thick twisted bushes. There was no trail. The edges of the valley they could see had cliffs with cave entrances interspersed here and there.
The first thing(s) they encountered were obvious spider webs and apparently obvious garden variety spiders. The party decided to avoid them.
Making their way towards a cave entrance they found what appeared to be a small wounded lizard-like creature (with many teeth) moaning pitifully. Elefus approached attempting to heal it.
That's when a large gaggle of similiar creatures leapt from hiding in the tall grass and bushes and attacked both flanks (in columnar marching order) of the party.
