After the bodies hit the floor, Debate immediately raged about the resurrection of Reginald. Cyric the brave and kindly soul refused to attempt to read the scroll in his possession, saying that Thraim should attempt it. Luck and counter luck kicked off. Thraim attempted to drink a potion of Arcane Comprehension but found it was just lolly water. He then borrowed Sly’s Luck stone that managed to avert certain death at the hands of a backfire. Reginald was resurrected to immediate health.
A detect magic was cast to determine the number of items left from the dead were indeed magical. Cicero the knowledgeable Bard knew what a number of the items were and began to inform the party. Before any serious negotiation could occur a slight tremor could be felt in the palace structure warning them that it was about to collapse. Thraim picking up his two incapacitated colleagues (Sly and Kerreth) and ran following Cicero towards a secret passage where no one comes out from. A choice was made left or right, with Thraim trusting his luck and turning right (based on a random dice roll and annoying Kerreth who kept muttering about always turning left) and towards a chamber with a hole in the roof. Apparently, the left passage led towards another silly realm. Standing under the hole in the chamber’s roof Thraim and his two charges were sucked up and away. Everyone else followed.
They emerged to another realm via the obvious gate to a large Fire lizard wrapped round the pedestal where DOOM were standing. A priest of Ibrandul welcomed them into the sanctuary and it would only cost them 50gp a night. Everyone readily paid as they were beaten up. A room was given to them. As luck would have it as Kerreth attempted to dispel the blindness of Sly she inadvertently healed everyone in the room, causing Cyric to sulk saying that he couldn’t do that. After the healing and sight restoration, the items and treasure were identified and divided up. Strangely Thraim started voting for party members confusing the Law abiding Kerreth, who just doesn’t understand the chaotic nature of Thraim.
The part left the Ibrandul sanctuary talking past the guards and fire lizards and began to attempt to map their way out of the underdark. Unfortunately, 3 oozes attempted to drop on their heads, but missed allowing DOOM to carry on ignoring their slow movement. Sly’s skin was burned as an ooze burned him. Everyone else dodged the horrible acid attacks. Kerreth attempted to cast another spell only managing to cause darkness and silence to descend on the party. Kerreth needs to remember that back in the Realms, to resist the temptation to casting spells as it tends to lead to bad things.
