As DOOM waited forlornly for adventure to hit them in their respected faces it was remembered that Kerreth had discovered (with a blade into flesh) a single part of the 7 pieced rod. It was decided as nothing else was on the horizon to investigate this further. A local Waterdeepean sage was contacted and a hefty price was paid by the benevolent generosity of Thraim. Apparently, after paying for the service Thraim failed to listen and understood very little. Something occurred like Sage sat on chair and began spouting wisdom. Thraim stared at ceiling and picked his grubby large wart covered nose. “Blah blah blah, 7 pieces of rod, Fight between Chaos and Law, Rod used to stick it to Chaos’ emissary a Tanar’ri who may or may not be defeated”.
Using the piece of the Rod Kerreth managed to discern that the piece may be in the Undermountain, the long held caverns beneath the mountain of Waterdeep. Without any more wise investigation the party of DOOM headed toward the Yawning Portal Inn, the famous entrance to the Undermountain. Sly used his stoneskin spell multiple times to help protect the members of DOOM. As the party of DOOM was lowered through the portal and into the darkness 140’ below (for a price of 1gp per individual paid for by the very kind Thraim again) bets could be heard above of their possible survival. Thoughts of a fireball thrown upwards were considered, but not done as none were memorised by the evil mage Kerreth. Sly of course didn’t even consider it. Reginald the spear carrier trotted on behind everyone looking blank.
Magical lights were un shielded as DOOM began to progress their way carefully with due care and diligence. Thraim with his unusual giant strength completely failed to open the first two doors encountered. A single pet rat was controlled by Thraim, as a signal of his unbelievable power. He shall now be called “Mr Squeak”. Sir Lanceabit began to mutter to Thraim and Sly that Kerreth wasn’t right and something might have to be done. Thraim ignored this as Sir Lanceabit’s helmet face guard was down and he was muttering. A room containing three Orcs was discovered who made the life changing foolish decision to attack. The Orcs lost initiative and were slain by Sir Lanceabit, Kerreth and Thraim. Everyone else just waited. A cursed sword was discovered and some magical chainmail. Another door was opened by Sir Lanceabit, who wasn’t surprised by a large platemail wearing Hobgoblin armed with a halbard. Without hesitation Sir Lanceabit, Split it from gullet to groin, and stepped through the two halves of gore and into the floor of the room. A staff with a magical mouth was discovered into a room with lots of statutes with the names scratched off by OCD evil.
A large room with several double doors and probable monsters were discovered. Sir Lanceabit, began to loosen his shoulders and limber up.
