Following the success of assisting Shar, DOOM decided on a quieter approach. An agreement to continue to search for the parts of the Rod was made and an expedition was prepared for searching for the next pieces of the Rod of far to many parts.
Kerreth continued to investigate how to combine the rod pieces with a glyph and silly brush. In the end she managed to combine the three pieces she had. Basking in her new powers she found that she could now fly at will, and her magical resistance has now increased to incredible margins. However, as a slight hindrance she can no longer lie or even consider breaking a law (anywhere). This might hinder the general aspect of money making of DOOM but “meh” said most of DOOM.
The Rod pointed to the north as DOOM began to prepare for their expedition, a horse, cart, stable boy and two guards were organized by Mister Thraim of Mistmoor manner. As Kerreth, Sly and Thraim rode in the wagon, Cyric had employed his hunter fellow (with pointy ears) and Cicero also rode along side. However, as they left only twenty minutes later Kerreth realized that the Rod was in fact still in Waterdeep and they had just spent half a day packing for a non existent holiday. Laughter at DOOM’s own stupidity left the lips as they had stopped at Ali Akbar’s warehouse. Inside after discovering what sort of place the ROD could be found was Ali himself. Kerreth, not wanting break any laws began negotiating for the purchase of the statue that holding the rod piece. The statue oddity looked more like a victim turned to stone that a classic statute. Using her not inconsiderable charms, she quickly purchased said statue for a paltry sum and it was eventually loaded into the wagon for transport back to a lair where the ceiling was low. Thraim was engaged with a series of ropes and tackle to ensure that the statute was to be not to be damaged by reverse gravity or pits. However, before that Kerreth was required to purchase a scroll from the Magisters protectors guild.
Attempting the spell caused nothing to happen in the time of troubles and a decision was made to attempt to wait out the troubles as magic only had a 8 percent chance of now working. Many secret plans were hatched or created by DOOM as they nervously waited. Kerreth continued to lurk in the underground lair and completely missed everything.
Short story was that Myrkul caused the undead to bubble out of the street in the dock ward and decend on blackstaff’s tower. The citizens of waterdeep were forced to defend their homes from this undead skurge as the God’s battled above the tower. Myrkul was disintegrated and simultaneously dimension doored through to the Waterdeep marked by Midnight. Of course he exploded there causing a dead zone where buildings crumbled and nothing grows. Following that Lord Ao appeared and elevated Cyric (not our “friendly” one) and Midnight to God status. Everything returned to normal in waterdeep.
During the strife, Cicero, Sly and Cyric tooled up and began looting and following the general policy of get what you can. Thraim had rallied to the citizens assistance and had joined in the fray as general splatter of undead and one of the few cleric who had the power to turn during the undead rampage. A heroic citizen indeed! A personal account may even be reported in the waterdeep weekly.
After it all settled down, the attempt to Stone to Flesh the poor individual who carried the Rod. It all worked out brilliantly as he completely failed his system shock and died, allowing DOOM not to discover just one Rod part, but Two. These were combined by Kerreth who now is in possession of a +3 staff on top of being able to shapechange, control the weather, charm creatures from the plane of air and be protected from them. Truely might indeed. Plans are afoot before the next expedition for the remaining rod pieces can be found.
