DOOM returned to the surface via the port key to the The Old Xoblob Shop, in the dock ward of Waterdeep. As they reappeared a voice from downstairs announced “Welcome adventures, please come down without weapons drawn”. DOOM descended down the stairs only to be met by the shop owner. Nothing was brought as DOOM struggled to understand which way to go to get back the the Sated Spectre, with their mental capacities reduced.
Shar being beautiful noticed how shadowy and thin DOOM looked, recommended rest before they carried on. A tenday rest was proscribed. During this time out of the hat of silliness on Sly’s head came some hairs of a lawful good being. Investigation began on the Rod of many parts study on how to combine it. Eventually, a mental summons from Shar came demanding that DOOM reassemble at the Sprectre. DOOM with heads down in worry left with Shar to the underdark to get involved with a God battle. The portal to the underdark sanctuary was used paying the required 10gp price, all agreed that Reginald should pay. DOOM trodded with heavy hearts of worry towards the now waiting place of Ibrandul on the bridge over the pit.
As they approached, Shar demanded that they distract Ibrandul. DOOM decided on the comedy approach with a song and dance number from Cicero, Kerreth and acting from Cyric. Thraim just stood round in stunned amazement. Ibrandul also was surprised by the song and dance act. However, Shar being the evil goddess that she was needed to monologue, completely defeating DOOM’s attempt to distract Ibrandul. She uttered something about him taking her followers, blah blah blah. Ibrandul began to transform into a dragon beast, as two Ibrandlin emerged from the pit. One attacked Shar the other breathed fire onto Kerreth and Cicero. Cyric began to twirl his flail very fast as Kerreth and Sly retreated from the beast up the corridor. Thraim and Cicero began to bash the closest beast. As Shar kept saying to get this other Ibrandlin beast off her. surprisingly as Ibrandul’s beast stood on the bridge Cyric suddenly began to attack the God, slightly hitting it. Cicero retreated to have a fly spell cast on him by Sly who had abandoned his spell casting due to the danger. Kerreth steadfastly blasted bolt after magic missile bolt into Ibrandul with no effect. Thraim jumped Ibrandul to help Shar and was promptly breathed on with fire breath from Ibrandul.
Unfortunately it all went wrong from the Spell casting trio down the corridor as Kerreth’s spell misfired and caused a large 50’ pit to open below them dumping them downwards, disrupting Sly’s first attempt at a Fly spell. Thraim used his horror wither spell to cause one of the Ibrandlin limbs attacking Shar to wither away. Ibrandul bashed Cyric with his tail. Down the pit the injured Sly attempted to cast another simple Fly spell on Cicero only to have the gravity reverse causing all three in the pit and Cyric to tumble to the ceiling, some 60’ foot or 70’ above their heads. Thraim continued to bash the Ibrandlin, while being bitten by Ibrandul himself. All three down the pit managed to tumble from the roof space onto only a 10’ fall saving themselves. Cyric managed to grab hold on the wall as gravity righted itself saving him certain death from his fall. Shar kept stating that she wanted the beast off her. Cicero and Kerreth headless of any God like ability began to hack and poke at the rear end of Ibrandul only receiving a tail bash in return, neither fell into the 100’ foot pit below. They stayed to bash as Thraim was again wounded by Ibrandul’s bite and claw while managing to slay the Ibrandlin ontop of Shar. He then attempted to lift the beast off of the trapped and whining Shar. Ibrandul continued to tail, claw and bite all around him. Cyric began to carefully climb down the wall, as the heavily wounded Sly waited in the corridor hoping for the best, trying not to think about casting any spells. Kerreth, Thraim and Cicero smote with heavenly forth wounding the mighty Ibrandul many times before Shar chest heaving pointed her finger at Ibrandul and muttered some syllables. Ibrandul began to turn to stone. As the process was complete, Thraim with the help of the unbreakable crow bars levered the statute off the bridge to calculate the fall as Ibrandul smashed into many pieces.
DOOM headed back to the Sated Spectre for a well earned drink with the invite from Shar. Everyone was very careful not to demand payment from Shar herself.
Where to from here??? DOOM members began to continue to do some research while not adventuring during the time of troubles as magic and DOOM’s whole ability was severely compromised.
