Welcome Back to the Labyrinth

"We have been away far too long, my friends," Ashoka declared, his face lit by the eldritch green glow of his staff. "But we have finally returned to the labyrinth whence our adventures first began."

"Just imagine the treasures that lie within," said Yun Tai, flexing his mighty muscles. "Wealth enough to live in luxury the rest of our days."

"And arcane artifacts of great power," added Ashoka his words dripping with avarice. "All ours for the taking!"

"Umm...guys?" Nysa interrupted. "Do you hear something dripping?"

Session 4: Need More Body-Bags

This session, a good deal more of the level was explored and mapped, and various and sundry vermin were exterminated.  After continuing to track Sathera's adventuring party through the dungeon, the PCs finally found their remains - entangled in nets and gnawed upon.  The perpetrator of the gnawing was the subject of much debate until zombies from a nearby room shambled in and settled the debate.

Although the rescue mission ultimately failed, the upswing was that the PCs got to loot the bodies of the missing party, thereby obtaining a shiny new +1 longsword.  Also, Sathera was not among the bodies of her comrades, and evidence suggests that she was dragged off, so hope remains of her survival.

The session ended, again, in a fight with the black-robed, pale-skinned zealots who were gambling on a fight between a borer beetle and a giant spider when the party came upon them.  Just as the previous session ended with these albinos killing Thorsten the sorcerer, this time they killed that same player's new character.  The turnover rate of characters is such that players are refraining from naming them.  Aside from the two longest running characters, Thomas and Ebin, the characters are referred to as The Thief, The Warrior, etc., and the most recent new character is called New Guy.

That's the quintessential D&D "glass half-full" statement. :)

In this case it was probably a "glass three-quarters-full" situation since I'm fairly certain that the players would rather have a magic sword than a successful rescue.

You forgot about my lantern carrier Link. Him and Seeker Tohm (my monk) are the only 2 characters left from the first session.
Not bad for someone with no stats.

His name was Farrukh... and he apparently had no friends to save him.
