The party met with Qill-the-Blarg (bard?) before heading down into the second level.
Luusi attempted to feed poisoned berries to Quill during their initial meeting… for no apparent reason at all. Before the DM had to look up poisoning rules, Sarius-the-Wizard intervened “Wait, those are poisonous, right?”. Luusi glared at Sarius for spoiling what could have been great fun, while Quill stood there with her mouth agape upon realizing that her new friends were actively attempting to kill her.
It slowly sank in on the players that their heroic versions of themselves are strikingly close to the cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Despite furious searching through Enna-the-elf’s notes, the password to the second level could not be found. Luusi attempted to bluff her way through the soldiers with a daring “Uhhhh… um… we… are… a maintenance crew? No, wait, we are here to see Kalarel.”
It was later determined that passwords were for losers anyway, as the heroes cut their way through the soldiers and their pet spider with ease.
Quill made a hobgoblin so sad it died.
The party met a gelatinous cube who managed to engulf Enna, Quill, and Sarius. Quill was almost dissolved in a the cube’s stomach. Winter-with-a-Y defeated the creature but slicing off the corners of the creature causing structural instability. Everyone was slimed.
The heroes met with the Warchief and his hobgoblin guards. After defeating the warchief and his lackeys, Wynter cut off the Warchief’s head, and Sarius caused the head to float in front of the party. This gruesome totem emptied the second level of the keep of the remaining hobgoblins. As one of the grunts put it (during an exit interview with the DM) “they were not getting paid enough to die”.
Sarius s-l-o-w-l-y spelled his name to Quill, just in case this becomes one of her epic tales. Enna rolled her eyes.
