Woodcrest Reunion

Session 6

The party started the session with coming up with a plan to try to lure more cannibals to them so that they might discover more about this mysterious island. They decide to burn down the only remaining structure in the ruined camp, then settle down to watch for investigators. Eventually, they set up watches and rest for the night. During the night, Leslon heard the sounds of half a dozen dire rats. The party dispatches them easily and go back to sleep.

The next day, they make their way toward where Ishirou’s treasure map says its hidden treasure lies and begin digging. Borben Nimblefoot stubbornly dug down ten feet until he hit a wooden floor. Exhausted, he ascends and shows the others the dwarven skeleton that was hidden beneath the dirt. The party discovers that the dwarf likely died from some form of unseen stab and can tell they are on the right path for the treasure. The party begins to try to pry the floor up, only to meet with failure. Instead, they began to chop through it and after lots of hard work, they manage to destroy the floor beneath them and plummet 40 feet down to a dark and murky pool of water.

They were not alone in the water, however, and two lacedons (aquatic ghouls) attack them. Romulo casts animate rope, swiftly lifting himself out of the pit. Borben and Leslon attempted to grab the rope to pull themselves up, but only Borben managed to catch it. After they reached the top, Borben worked to use the pulley system they had established to lift Leslon to safety. Leslon managed to make it to where the platform had once been and shot one monster with an arrow. Romulo improvises a Molotov cocktail and launches it down the shoot, perfectly hitting the lacedon that was climbing up the shaft and setting the surface of the water on fire. Borben launched himself down the hole and kicks the head off the remaining lacedon, ending the fight. After the battle, Romulo finds the hidden treasure and the castaways celebrate their haul.

While camping that night, two Thrunefang cannibals attempted to sneak up on the party. However, Leslon’s keen ears allows him to get the drop on them. They quickly subdue their foes and start interrogating the live cannibal. They are able to extract where the Thrunefang camp was located as well as news that Ieana and Captain Alizandru Kovack had been meeting with their leader. They killed the cannibal after they got the information and dumped his body in the hole.

The party decides to make their way back to camp and starts the arduous trek through the jungle.
