As DOOM traveled towards the castle in the distance covered in clouds, a cloud bridge was discovered linking the Castle with the mainland. It was fluffy and slightly bouncy allowing DOOM to knock at the front door. Cryic and Kerreth had agreed to play the part of the two now dead elven spider slayers. Cyric through some brilliant talking not only convinced the cloud giant guard (merely 35’ tall) but his master that they were the spider slayers and we were the vermin backup.
Leading over towering steps, the castle central chamber was being set up for the wedding feast. Seated at some small tables DOOM were allowed to sit and watch Cyric sit in a giant sized baby seat to discuss spiders with a slightly mad giant, Siri. Other giants were introduced, but names passed Thraim as he got distracted by mountain oysters. Cryic spotted two polymorpthed dragons pretending to be stone giants, who subsequently said that they didn’t need any help. Following the giant Dinner as the quests were bedding down in the main hall, DOOM left on the premise of being on spider slaying duties.
Exploring the castle and discovering the main stairs DOOM descended down to discover very large hallways and a possible dungeon, by passing a guarded curtain with two fire giants and two hell hounds. A portcullis was discovered down stairs were meowwing and growling could be heard. Thraim made tick tick noises to see what would approach. Some great cats of leopard variety appeared and were immediately controlled by Thraim and Reginald’s rings of mammal controls. Insert maniacal laugh here. The cats were commanded to behave as another cloud giant came over. Cyric again convinced the giant to let them though for spider hunting. Seeing an oubliette and after a brief conversation, It was decided that violence was the answer. Thraim cast silence on himself and had to enlarge to ensure that the giant’s screams couldn’t be heard. Lanceabit began to hack pieces out of the giant who returned a mighty splat with its giant sized morning star. Thraim after watching the carnage continue managed to splat the giant on the head killing him/her outright. The cats being controlled just looked on.
Using all the strength of the magically enhanced Kerreth, Thraim and Lanceabit the Oubliette stone was moved aside revealing the polymorphed young dragon. It changed into bird and flew off without a word of thanks for it’s kind rescuers.
DOOM left after deciding not to drag the giant into the pit without heavy engineering equipment. climbing up the stairs Cyric again bluffed DOOM’s way past the guards to discover two fire giants worried about their hair. Cyric pretended to be a hair stylist, Kerreth turned invisible to retrieve the piece of rod from the dresser table under the noses of the giantess. Thraim, sly and Lanceabit did nothing as any fight might turn to certain death, with a cloud giant guard post very next door. 4 giants and 2 hell hounds, was a possibility, but 9 giants = TPK. Reginald apparently cast an illusion of a successful hair cut on the giant.
DOOM fled out towards the cloud giant garden, being stopped by a cloud giant. Cyric again convinced it that they were allowed to go past. The giant cat also suddenly attacked the giant as Sly in the confusion cast forget on the giant successfully who never remembered that it had even seen DOOM leave or the cat attack (who was now purring nicely at it’s feet). DOOM entered the garden and in a variety of ways flew off towards the henchmen and waiting warriors. Halfway through the escape Kerreth’s spell ran out causing her to tumble spectacularly on the trail and continue running to catch up the faster flyers. Kerreth began to behave even more lawfully that before, it that was indeed possible.
