Chapter Eight

From the Journal of Omega
25th Day of Dawntide, in the Year of the Lich 5237

When I awoke the next morning, I recalled the dream I had. I remembered the woman I saw, an exotic looking woman, pale of skin with raven black hair and eyes. I’m not ready to tell my companions just yet, I’m not sure exactly what is going on just yet… We traveled through the cave system for a long time when we came across a fork in our path, a weird light emanating from the moss on the walls. As we got closer, the moss attacked us. There was a second moss across the room that slowly made its way towards us as we tried with all our might to defeat the first one. We barely managed to defeat the first as the second approached us. We kited around the second and found our exit.

As we progressed through the tunnels even farther we entered a room where we found a giant worm-like creature. Out of nowhere there was a strange light that beckoned me towards it. As I ran to it I got stuck in this web that was nearly invisible on the ground. I managed to break free of the webs as my companions and I fought through the worm’s attacks. Oog-rok ended up slaying the beast and thought it would be a good idea to cut up the monster and save his meat to eat later. While he carved through the beast he hit the stomach (I can only assume because he had no idea what he was doing) and the stench was near unbearable.

We continued through the tunnels where we happened upon a camp. Ensuring we were out of range to be seen, we investigated the creatures that were there. As it happened, we had come across a goblin camp. Oog-rok had us stay behind as he went out and tried to talk to them. He convinced them that he was there to rid the tunnels of the evil Drow that had been inhabiting them. That’s when Oog-rok brought out Idrathor and the goblins lost their nerve. They claimed that Oog-rok was a liar and was there to kill them. Oog-rok managed to convince them that THIS Drow as good and that he was there to help them defeat the evil drow but the Goblin leader still wasn’t having it. Oog-rok challenged the leader to a fight for supremacy, the winner would become the new leader of the goblins. The leader agreed and as the fight began both the goblins dropped their weapons as Oog-rok rushed forward and punched the leader. The leader, being a Goblin (Known for not being exactly good) ran back, grabbed his weapon and attacked Oog-rok with it. He yelled a bunch of crap in Goblin and the other goblins cheered. Oog-rok walked up and punched the goblin one time and the leader crumpled into a tiny heap of flesh on the ground. I don’t know exactly what he did but he had to have asked his god for help on that hit because he floored that little thing so quickly. He didn’t want to kill the goblin so he brought him back up and agreed to co-lead the goblin force (around 20 of them). We spent the evening with the goblins, drinking and partying. Tomorrow we march on the Drow fortress and I hope that we are able to complete our mission. This will not be an easy task….

We woke up the next day and I couldn’t believe that there was some kind of vengeful spirit or zombie after Oog-Rok. That seemed something that would come back to bite us in the ass but hopefully we took care of that when Omega took his head.

We traveled the tunnels toward our objective. Miles of darkness, the goggles that the Gnomes gave us came in handy. I couldn’t imagine traveling this long and far in complete darkness and the lantern we brought would have only attracted attention.

We traveled and came to a room that had a strange light, there were two exits leading from the room. We hugged the wall and made our way to the northern exit. As we approached the exit, moss from the ceiling began attacking us. This moss creature was difficult and during the battle another moss creature by the other exit started moving toward us. We were able to finish off the first one and used distance attacks and hit and run tactics to finish off the second.

We continued through the tunnels after we exited the room. Hours passed with us marching along. As we came to an area that widened a little when we were attacked by a huge worm creature. As we rushed into attack the worm, some of us got caught on some web like filament that was on the floor and as we were attacking the worm some of my shield mates started rushing toward a point that didn’t have anything there. We finally were able to kill the creature; Oog-Rok began carving up the creature like it was beef cow. He actually thought about taking some with us.

We continued on and found a camp. We observed it from a distance and discovered that it was a camp of goblins. We determined Oog-Rok would go talk to them. He walked into their camp and there was a lot of talking in goblin. He signaled Idrathor to come into the light and the goblins went crazy. Oog-Rok seemed to win them over, but then one of them (the one that seemed the leader of this band) seemed like he didn’t like what was happening. There was a lot of bickering and the two squared off. They dropped their weapons, I guess for a fist fight but when they moved in, the goblin leader grabbed his weapons and attacked. Oog-Rok punched the goblin and dropped him. He then healed him and (so he told us later) convinced them to help us against the drow. We spent the night with the goblins as they partied.

The next day, Oog-Rok got his troops to tell us how get to drow held area. We traveled with them wondering if they would turn on us. We came to what marked the beginning of the drow area and Idrathor used my goggles to increase the limits of his dark vision and saw that there were guards (three drows and two flaming dog like creatures). We came up with a plan to cast darkness and silence on a bolt and then shoot the bolt at the guards to allow us to close the distance. We shot the bolt and rushed in. One of the dogs appeared next to us out of thin area and shrieked. A fear came over me and I could not look at the creature. The other creature and I had no fear toward that one so I attacked it. We were dealing with those two when the drow strolled out of the darkness and began attacking us. We had a time of it, but we were finally able to put down the drow and one of the dogs, with the goblins help (finally!)

We decided to take a short rest before we continued on.
