The guys make a friend, or else Zalt does- he's called Wodger. Lastly the adventurers meet up with a lovely group of Drow- and quickly agree to work with/for them. Yeah, you read that right.

Thank You.

Last stop back out of the mines and to Bargewright Inn for a chat about what's going on.

Thank You.

In which the adventurers have a long (and sometimes nasty) chat with Gaelkur and his Wharf Rats, it seems Goren has been kidnapped- but not by them. The missing Goren is a (long- possibly) river boat away. The guys have more pressing business, there follows a meeting with the High True Trader, the guys sign up to rescue the missing knight- Sir Gustav. They also learn about Strom Halifax, the Dwarf they are waiting on. Then into the wilds, along the Iron Road to discover Sir Gustav's campaign is under attack, some real nasties involved. Violence, at last- something the guys can understand.

Thank You.

The guys are on the right path, they keep finding the dead bodies of members of Sir Gustav's coterie, and plenty of bad guys, and a few traps. More to follow, no doubt...

Thank You.

#57- In which the adventurers continue their journey through an ancient Bronzehammer Dwarven hold in search of the missing Knight- Sir Gustav, and his groupies. They head down, and then down again- briefly, and get chased off by Ghouls. Go for a wander and get lost, and then found by a gang of Skeletons, and then after a night's rest, level up (mostly). Then down again, back to the Ghouls- a fight ensues, wouldn't you know it.

#58- Find more dead bodies, and then (eventually) Sir Gustav's trail- and then a dead end, only a bunch (mob) of Ghasts and Ghouls come calling, the guys fight for their lives. It gets tense as at one point Zyler and Zalt are Paralyzed (& both Poisoned), while Grimm is down and rolling Death Saves.

Enjoy

Thank You.

The guys are on the run now- down the drain and into the Underdark (they should have rested), attacked by a bunch of crazy Troglodytes, and the off- racing through the tunnels in pursuit of the last of Sir Gustav's gang, and the sounds of fighting. The Union rush into an ongoing fight- stone masked Monks versus a bunch of Drow, the latter group have an unconscious Knight in tow (Sir Gustav), the fighting continues...

Enjoy

Thank You.

Closest we've come to a PC death (saved by a random dice roll). Then time for stories to be told- Sir Gustav and Kal'Zerth.

Enjoy

Thank You.

Session #61- the Union continue to investigate the Bronzehammer obelisk, then head off- back to the surface, en route they attempt to rescue Rowan- they take a beating. Back on the surface it's snowing- winter is here, at last. Back into the depths- Devils and Undead, and more eye symbols.

Session #62- more Devils, and an Elf- the Lord of War (briefly)- Rowan is rescued and another coded note is found. En route again to the surface- bust into a Bronzehammer tomb (not the Halls of the Hunting Axe). Back again to the surface and on to Womford, only the weather is very odd.

Enjoy & have a glorious New Year.

Thank You.

The Union do a hundred-and-one things in Womford, and then head out to Bargewright- things are very odd there, the guys make sense of things eventually. Next stop into the ancient Bronzehammer mines beneath the settlement, they're heading for Dhol Kuldhir (the door at the end), although first off they meet an old friend.

Thank You.

The Union also makes friends with a Kobold High Priestess, eventually, she tells them about the Dragon Lord's, and that 'paradise' awaits.

The Union kick the door of the Dragon Lord's lair open and get busy with it- the fight is long, bloody and fiery (thanks to Ken Lee). The guys win but take a beating, thirty seconds later the second fight kicks off, as the dead come back to life- well... sorta. The Union collectively deploy every power, skill and spell they have, and they're still fighting when the session ends, and then things get worse.

Thank You.

Good gravy, this is absolutely nail-biting stuff! 5e really seems to do these combats well - or you do!
If I tried this in 3.5 half the enemy couldn't touch the PCs and the big bads would be either punch bags or too strong. Very well played, sir!
