DOOM quickly debated investigating the sarcophagus. with Thraim opening the lid to see a corpse inside. Unsurprisingly, it woke up and then fled from the unbelievable power of Typus the mace. Unluckily no treasure was found. DOOM wandered off towards the Lair of Evil that Ibrandul didn’t want to destroy personally.
The entrance had a warning about something to do with Dwarves engraved at the door mantle in Dwarven runes.
Being professional and experience a vast arrange of pit traps were quickly discovered in the first 30 × 30 square room. The entire rim of the room were covered in Pit traps that had been deactivated. Even the middle of the room was a large squish trap, with the floor raising up to the ceiling. Every set door as a pull trap. About this time paranoia kicked in and DOOM began to move very slowly and carefully with Kerreth and Thraim checking every foot hold through the first door. A trap portcullis was discovered with a sticky trap on it, to avoid it Thraim bent the bars rather than lift the gate. Behind the gate was another trap with a tilt and die into another chamber with another pit trap in it. It was disarmed and no secret doors were discovered.
This end chamber was abandoned in favour of the middle one, where more traps and trapped portcullis were discovered. The end of the chamber contained a secret wall for behind which two statutes of beautiful females came alive and attacked. These were systematically slain by the combined poking of Cicero and Kerreth. As these Stone Golem creatures attacked three minor demons appeared surprising Sly. Reginald acting quickly slowed them with a slow spell allowing Thraim and Cyric to move to battle the creatures. They all breathed some kind of attacks only slightly hurting the party or failing to poison. Kerreth and Cicero moved with lightning type reflexes to dispatch these before Thraim or Cyric said “hey” again. Sly just stood still in the middle and muttered “marvelous”. No treasure was again found as the statues had crumbled into dust upon their death.
The last trapped entrance way door was investigated and the trap bypassed with another trapped portcullis. This led to an elevator room and another 30×30 room where a secret staircase was found. DOOM realising that upstairs would probably just be traps carefully went down the stairs. Both Kerreth and Reginald crept down the stairs to investigate the chamber below. As the rest of DOOM traveled down the stairs the light source of the continual light revealed two demon type things with bells on who immediately went off clanging and banging acting as alarms.
Reginald with his amazing power cast Evard’s Black Tentacles down one corridor to block it as DOOM traveled down the different direction. Booted feet could be seen as 8 demon type things rushed down the corridor to attack. Thraim used his most powerful Cloud Kill spell to discover that these creatures were immune to poison. Happily they weren’t immune to pointy weapons as Cicero began to poke the first two to death. The demon things attempted to cast spells only resulting in more of them dying under the hateful rapier. Eventually all were slain in quick fashion with 7 of the 8 killed by Cicero and one by Thraim. Apparently, they were almost immune to every possible magical attack, just not weapons. DOOM were awaiting the arrival of more.
Kerreth still hadn’t returned from her high speed creeping.
