New Friends, New Trouble

first encounter of new friends and a new foe

After retrieving his locket Ameth decides to pop back into the Golden Brush for a quick nip. Soon after arriving Ameth four drunk dwarves start trouble with a fifth dwarf. The drunk dwarves seem to have mistaken the other dwarf for a friend of theirs but are obviously getting on his nerves. They continue to get more boisterous and knock over the soup of a nearby halfling. Only when the mistaken dwarf’s ale is messed with does he react, digging his axe deep into the others chest. A scuffle takes place and with the halfling and Ameths help it is quickly resolved. While the dwarf introduces himself as Malkatraz and the halfling as Liniff they are approached by another halfling who has a proposition for the rowdy group. His partner has gone missing while in search of a powerful weapon but he is too afraid to search for answers himself. Ameth & Liniff seem excited by the prospect while Malkatraz begrudgingly seems interested.

Ameth & Liniff take the lead in into Quill Woods searching for the missing halfling and weapon while Malkatraz keeps his distance. After an encounter with a large slime Malkatraz attempts to assert leadership of this expedition resulting in the first of many fights between Ameth and himself. Eventually the trio find a dead halfling they assume to be the missing partner. Liniff finds a map on the body and they continue to investigate until they find a hidden entrance. Malkatraz once again hangs back while the other two delve into the dungeon. After sneaking around for quite some time Malkatraz decides to see what’s taking Ameth and Liniff so long. Because of an argument between the group over what to do with a mysterious hatch the inhabitants of the lair soon realize they have guests resulting in a messy but quick battle.Malkatraz and Liniff go deeper into the dungeon as Ameth continues to investigate the copper hatch. After some quick work with the hatch the door begins to swing open and they all immediately realize Ameth’s mistake, a dark purple mass of bone and limbs begins to rise out of the hatch while the three adventurers run deeper into the lair.

They find themselves in the Goblin Warlords room toward the back of the dungeon with the unholy mass slowly approaching them. The three work together to make short work of the goblin and his hound. Before the goblin was finished of he revealed they had released an ancient evil called a Polnorphus that is now in search of a host to confine it’s body to so that it can then spread to others again and again. The group decides to toss the goblin’s dog at the purple mass which quickly seems to devour what was left of the dog only to reconstitute itself into a purple demon dog. Now that it has a body the demon quickly tries to flee while the group fight among themselves. After Ameth almost looses his arm to Malkatraz the group splits up. Malkatraz tries to escape the dungeon from the goblin warlord’s escape route whlie Ameth and Liniff try to chase down the evil they have released. Unfortunately the evil Polnorphus escapes into the wild and Liniff looses her spear in the process.
