Winter, Wealday, 19th of Calistril, 4714
PCs: Alkor, Vaotu, Vark, Bavolin, Cask, Shirly, Soyala, Max and Doc!
With the Homunculus escaped, the long and bloody fight with the mutant Goblins continues. Brimstone buckles over when a rubbery Goblin smacks him in the fiend’s secret sack, while Vark enchants Doc to grow to a mighty size (causing Cask to hide in her boot as she starts stomping on his freakish cousins, leaving wet, bloody smears on the floor and walls). With a concerted effort, the rest soon follow.
Choosing not to give chase to the little fiend, they instead head through another door, finding what might have once been a library, now destroyed thanks to the rampages of a now defunct construct. Before they have a chance to poke around, they find the room is inhabited by two very angry earth elementals, which hit hard, but find the gang hit’s harder. Finishing their search they find a pair of intriguing tomes on alchemy and arcana, and in digging out the wrecked construct they find an intact arcane power-core..
Sending Cask to scout out the tunnel made by the trashed robot, he soon returns through another door to show both lead to the same place. Though the neighboring room is similarly damaged, some of the alchemical components stored there are still intact. With spells and healing magic mostly exhausted, the group decide to call it a day, and cart the remains of the construct, along with all their other loot, back to the house for a much needed rest.
