Man, we got a lot done tonight.
-Killed the Patriarch of the evil death cult
-Killed the wizard making elemental crystals for said death cult
-Seized the evil book of evilness that the cult had in their tower
-Destroyed giant soul-sucking apparatus the death cult had, plus collapsed part of the dungeon
-Lost a long time hireling to energy-draining phantoms. :/
One of our noobs tried to charm the evil wizard, and hopefully the player learned a lesson. The resulting lightning bolt was very nearly a TPK. (Though my character remained undamaged, as he is cowardly and clever)
Looking forward to the next session. Unrelated, I picked up Van Richten's Guide toWerebeasts for three bucks.
