As members of DOOM waited at the room with double doors. Thraim the wicked dwarf suddenly remembered the large amount of statues and with no difficulty convinced Sly to help start pushing them over to see what would happen. Sly and Thraim started everyone else just watched from the door way as the first statue was pushed over. Some groaning could be heard down the long corridor. As they waited to see what was coming, both Thraim and Sly removed their respective holy symbols and waited. 5 Gasts appeared, shuffling to eat the living. Fortunately, Thraim’s clerical powers easily defeated the creatures, sending them fleeing down the corridor. More statues started to be pushed over for no reason. Some coins were found beneath the base. Suddenly the rest of DOOM agreed that every statue could be pushed over. Reginald, Sir Lanceabit and Thraim started to move the remaining 38 statues. 61 gems were found and some 40 odd pieces of gold. Alone the way a very large snake emerged from the ceiling to engulf Sly who was trapped and fortunately, uninjured as his stoneskin was still in operation. The 30 foot long python was chopped up in two rounds. Luckily some of the gems did indeed appear to be very valuable.
More corridors began to be investigated. A golden room off the hallway was spotted. Thraim and Cyric noticed a invisible wyvern hanging from the high ceiling 70’ abone. Everyone else spotted the dead orc and gem covered bone throne. Thraim and Kerreth investigated closely to discover some possible magical treasure hidden inside. Kerreth easily bypassed the trap and several items were recovered. Thraim started picking off the gems from the bone throne. non surprisingly the throne arms became alive as bone snakes from the arms. Thraim and Sir lanceabit destroyed the bone snakes in very short order, taking no injuries. More gems were picked off by everyone helping to loot the throne.
A large crypt type room was discovered. Amongst the end rose two beholder kin. Thraim and Sir Lanceabit immediately rushed in to attack as Reginald attacked one with arrows. Others hung back. With strong wills and carefull cunning, both Thraim and Sir Lanceabit resisted all the gaze attacks (cause serious wounds, cone of cold, lightning bolt, dispel magic, charm etc) and began at to chop at the floating potatoes who bobbed up and down. Magic missiles from Sly, Kerreth and some spell from Reginald hit the potatoes. Cyric rushed in. The first floating potato was slain by Thraim as Sly’s magic missiles has weakened it considerably. The Second was slain byCyric who struck brilliantly from the side, after it was hacked by a temporary non magical sword from Sir Lanceabit). The potatoes splattered on the ground and some treasure of a ring (possible wishes) and magical dagger (+3 claimed by Sly) was discovered in the crypt.
More investigations of the Undermountain continued as DOOM looked for a way down, as the magical piece of rod from Kerreth drew her ever onwards. A room that resembled a square butt was found, but it was fortunately guarded by a ghost that attempted to age everyone. Thraim completely failed to turn this undead beast as it vanished a began to posses Thraims Body. Sir Lanceabit immediately detected something was wrong but had no idea what to do. Cyric and Sly immediately cast protection from evil to ward off other possessions. The ghost in Thraim’s body immediately attempted to leave but was blinded by Reginald and then Held by Cryic as it had the saves of a Ghost and not Thraim. Debate occurred as to what to do. Cyric being an evil little Git (and knowing nothing about undead) decided to find the Gases vestible and destroy it in an unholy ritural with fire and sillyness. Unfortunately, this may have slain Thraim’s soul and destroyed it forever. A fleeting look of sheepishness crossed Cryic’s face as then the body of the blind, held ghost was also destroyed, with four hard thwacks. Thraim was now dead and couldn’t be revived. After saying a very quick eulogy, Thraim’s mundane and magical possessions were immediately looted. Debate ensued. The Girdle of Stone Giant Strength most likely ending up in Reginald’s care even though Kerreth flashed her new enhanced breasts temporarily stunning the unwise and horny members of DOOM. Cyric didn’t care as he had arranged for the murder of a traitor to the temple of Mask. Well done Cyric!
