Wrath of the Righteous Chapter Five, Herald of the Ivory Labyrinth – Second Session

Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler

Second Session (8 page pdf) – We need to go bleed the Father of Wyrms for his tasty, tasty… I mean super-acidic blood.

But first, some more demodands!  We met one last session and I tried to talk with it but everyone just chopped it up. We meet three more, and while we do some chopping we take the leader, a shaggy demodand, alive. Why aren’t they shaggy? The tarry ones are tarry and the slimy ones are slimy, but the shaggy ones are just fat.  It’s weird.  Anyway, they are apparently the jailers of Baphomet.  He tells us lots of stuff but the most disturbing is that Baphoment was created as a “consort” by Lamashtu – in other words, as a goat-headed (NSFW link!) RealDoll. Disturbing.

Then we go find the giant epic daddy of all nightcrawlers and come up with cunning plans to get its blood, but it turns out running up to it and hitting it a couple times till it dies suffices. We get its Alien-style acid blood and go to Baphomet’s prison. It is guarded by one-eyed, one-horned flying purple people eaters.  (Really!)

Wrath of the Righteous Chapter Five, Herald of the Ivory Labyrinth – First Session

Vescavor Demon

First Session (8 page pdf) – Our righteous heroes head into the Abyss to free the Herald of Iomedae.  We keep wanting to just go kill Baphomet instead.

Iomedae herself appears to us and gives us tests and doodads and sends us to the Abyss to get her imprisoned herald. The Ivory Labyrinth is a suck-hole, you just wander around for weeks till you find things.  The entrance is guarded by a couple interesting waves of critters, but then it’s interminable wandering.

We do take a perverted fly-headed demon captive and use him to lead us to the capital, Blackburn. We try to trade for information with a hivemind of vescavor demons, but everything it has to say either a) we already know or b) is unhelpful because there’s no such thing as directions here,  you just wander around and make Survival and Knowledge: Planes checks (reflecting what we have no idea) till you find your destination.

Oh and we meet a planetar who is just wandering around and wants to join up.  “Uh… OK,” we say.
