As the smoking corpses of Dretch and Manes were searched nothing else was discovered in the forge. DOOM carried down the corridor looking for the big bad. A vast chamber full of junk supported by pillars was discovered. DOOM could hear the sounds of crashing and frustration in a demonic language. DOOM began to investigate. The discovered 6 Dretch staring at the side wall of the junk pile in the middle of the vast chamber. Cicero the fast and furious immediately began to poke at two not quite killing any as Reginald, Cyric and Thraim strode forth to kill only one between them. Things looked dire as Sly’s spell again had no affect and nothing happened. Suddenly from the rubble burst two Demon Dog like things.
The arrival of the Demonic dog things on the flank attacking Cyric caused a dramatic change in direction with Cicero immediately slaying two Dretch and Reginald and Cyric slaying their two. Thraim nobly held off his two for dramatic affect by missing. Cicero moved to the flank of the dog thing and slew it with heavy poking. Reginald and Cyric hacked at the other one. A Dretch splatted under the mace of Thraim. Cicero, Reginald slew the final hound in a fit of semi evil glee as Cyric rushed to help his friend Thraim who still hadn’t slain the last Dretch. It was put down in short fashion. Only junk was found in the room.
More hurried corridors were searched and doors kick open. A cold store room discovered 4 flying demonic imp things that attacked with a dragon breath attack slightly injuring Cicero and Thraim. These were immediately put down and splattered. Only human and dwarf corpses were found in the cold store. Only the stairs remained now leading down into the darkness.
As they descended down into the dwarven mines many mine shafts were discovered as DOOM’s life force began to be drained causing DOOM to run. 10 Dretch were discovered down a corridor but dispatched with ease, by Cicero, Thraim and Cyric. Sly continued to puke at the back of the party looking miserable with his non mighty magical protections from poison.
4 shadows emerged out of the darkness down another corridor only to immediately dissipate permanently at the sight of Typus and the gods of Chaos. DOOM now ran on.
Soon the tunnels led down to the darkness where a vast lava hole was discovered where many tunnels converged. As DOOM began to investigate a horde of Manes and Dretched suddenly appeared down the tunnel whence DOOM came and began to attempt to force DOOM over into the vast chamber. Cicero immediately moved to stop the first few in their tracks skewering two. Reginald in an amazing turn of evens released a fireball down the corridor confusing all the manes and most of the Dretch to death. Party members of DOOM knew it just wasn’t possible to do that so disproved the illusion. While they waited a real fireball exploded next to Sly, Reginald, Cyric and Thraim who had simply said hey as Cicero had moved too fast.
Much injuring occurred with the slow few changing their actions to see what had happened and who released the real fireball. A flying beast could be seen flying in the vast lava chamber.
Thraim immediately drank his potion of Flying that worked, as Sly cast a Fly spell that also worked normally. Cyric began to leviate to spred out as much as possible. Another smaller fireball fell in the midst of everyone. Thraim flew at the beast smashing it mightily, but unfortunately healed himself and it with a magic misfire effect. Reginald cast his powerful polymorph other spell but was defeated by it’s magical resistance. Sly attempted to cast a magic missile but the spell failed, he chose to fly at it with his magical stick. Cyric stood on empty air and said “hey can anyone give me a tow”. Cicero dispatched the three remaining dretches professionally. Sly gave up being useless and flew towards Cyric and began to tow him towards the Nabassu demon. Cicero cast his Melf’s minute meteors spell, only to hit Thraim more than the demon. Thraim and the Nabassu demon traded blows. Cyric being towed had cast his most powerful and surprising effect Dispel Evil. As he arrived into combat Cyric even hit (on a natural 20), the creature not only failed it’s magic resistance, but also it’s saving throw and was immediately banished back to it’s natural plane. Everyone hovered in stunned silence as Cyrics spell had actually worked as intended. An investigation of the chamber discovered a cursed (now shattered gem thanks to the pick of piecing), crystal ball and empty iron flask. DOOM still felt their souls being drained and began to flee the dungeon at high speed, thanks to the navigation abilities of Thraim.
Meeting Ibrundul at the bridge above the pit outside the dungeon in the underdark, DOOM said they cleared the dungeon, but still looked more stupid (Kerreth, Sly and Reginald), Clumsy (Cicero, Reginald, Sly and Kerreth), Ugly (Cicero) and Unwise (Thraim and Cyric). DOOM fled towards the Port key they found in the cloakers room inside the underdark to attempt to flee the underdark and return to Waterdeep. Rest is now needed or a total party kill as no spells can be cast thanks to the Time of troubles, or unwise or even remembered thanks to low intelligence, while any thieving abilities are extremely hampered by very low dexterity
