A mammoth session this time our intrepid group set out to do some arts and crafts carving up some boats for their sailing journey on the darklake but before they were finished they were attacked by their drow hunters. Short work was made of the scouts but the spider cavalry drove them into the boats fleeing for the safety of the water, one whirlpool later the team was divided into three parts, two boats sailing the lake whilst the third were drow prisoners once more.
Soon though everyone was a prisoner of one group or another, the main group put up a fierce fight but were knocked unconscious by a number of Kua Toa, their imprisonment didn’t last for long as a rival group of Kua Toa defeated their captors and offered the team a choice, work for them, infiltrating a sacrificial ritual as sacrifices and kill the cult leader or be used as the sacrifices anyway. Ront, Jimjar and Prince D had already accepted this offer and were waiting for the group when they arrived at Sloopddoop (Minus one orc leg however) The party worked together to craft a new peg leg for Ront from his short sword and awaited their sacrifice. The ritual was infiltrated and the assassination was almost complete when it was interrupted by the sudden arrival of Demogorgon the PRince of Demons from the depths of the lake. Sloopddoop was besieged and the party fled leaving Shushar behind to tend to his people.
Over twenty days the party encountered friends and foe alike on their aquatic journey, dining with a mysterious witch in the skeletal remains of an ancient dragon, nearly dying when crashing down a number of rapids, attending a grisly underwater wedding and defeating an ancient water elemental in one blow revealing its lost treasure. After nearly a month in the damp darkness of the lake an orange glow on the horizon signifies the end to their journey as the forges of Gauntgrym light up the cavern in front of them. What awaits them in the City of Blades….
