Grapa decides that he will go after the Female lizard alone. Before he leaves he gives a care package to Garion

 

When Grapa returns Draos will cast an illusion  of a dragon (male) to enrage and engage the real male dragon.

 

We strip down to what we need to fight the dragons and stow our gear “under a rock”

 

 

Tenax will only be wearing the following:

Bracers of Vampiric regeneration

Ring of Chamelion

The Boon

Potion of Hill Giant Strength

Continual light dagger

Nightshade

+3 Buckler

normal clothing

boots

 

 

Grapa comes back and tells us that the shroom-Tenax’s have grown to fullness.

 

I bring Archie and Seanee to Grappa

 

Grapa carries Seanee to the entrance of the cavern,

 

Seanee knows the exact distance and approx # of the Tenax-o-shrooms.

 

There are ~300 fungi within range.

 

They, clearly, need to be cleansed with fire. Thus Archie.

 

Grapa kills one Hodor-o-shroom

 

Archie takes out a continual light dagger

 

About 2 dozen adventurer-o-shrooms

 

As the shrooms notice the light they start coming towards the party.

 

Archie unleashes the fury of fire once, and puts 50 out of their misery.

 

Archie continues for 8 more minutes.

 

Archie looks a little loopy, innervated. His pupils dialate.

Grapa goes to attack the dragon.

 

Archie goes with him.

 

Tenax goes to retrieve Archie, but the smoke prevents him.

 

Seanee arrives and starts casting.

 

We assume our positions and wait for the Grapa to return with the Dragon.

 

. . . .

. . . . . .

 

Grapa appears in shroom cave with the female dragon’s head.

 

Archie is confused and scared and hids in the shroom cave as Grapa and the dragon pass on the way to the attack cave.

 

Archie attacks its ass with fireball, doing 30 points.

 

The tail swipes around. It didn’t like being attacked in the ass, it continues to attack cave.

 

Grapa turns around in shroom cave and does 13pts before dropping Alcarg.

 

The male dragon claws Grapa handily. He takes 46pts.

 

Draos sends her illusory dragon in. The male sees it and is enraged.

 

[sweet]

 

Grapa sticks it a couple more times.

 

Archie attacks the dragon ass again for 35pts.

 

The dragon shoves Grapa aside and proceeds through the crevasse.

 

The dragon pitches forward.

 

Grapa dirves Alcarg through its head and strikes a pose.

 

Grapa and Archie seem to be effected in their minds.

 

Draos goes down in and is effected as well.

 

They are seeing dragons that aren’t there, and are not making coherent conversation.

 

Draos touches Alcarg – it burns him.

 

Babeling.

 

Grapa starts attacking the dead dragon.

 

Seanee neutralizes the poison that effects Grapa.

 

He realizes that he behaved recklessly.

 

Now we need to get Archie and Draos out of that cave.

 

Archie gets a dragon fang.

 

Grapa calls to the others, and appeals to their baser instincts.

 

Seanee neutralizes poison on Archie while Grapa distracts him with the possibility of other attackers.

 

Same scenario with Draos, but Seanee uses a hold poison – the poison will wear off before the hold poison wears off.

 

 

We retrieve our items.

 

 

REFER TO THE dragon as a drakolisk in our notes.

 

Seanee casts a cloud of pure air. Then a dust devel to move it around. He and Ambros clear the cave of the shroom smoke.

 

Grapa leads us to the drakolisk’s nest

 

We see shed scales, they are the exact shape as the “shield” that Garion carries.

 

Zamphire appears.

 

He plays a tune and an imperial soldier appears. Taller and more muscular than us.

 

Garion digs in the nest while Seanee directs him toward the magic items.
