The island we are exploring has been split in two by a massive eruption. The prison appears to have had something break out of it in the past but not recently. Within is a chasm, hundreds of meters deep. A wall of bones lies across one corner and Vrok demons fly out from behind it.
An eruption outside in the centre of the island spews out sulphur and a plume of lava into the air. The air outside the building becomes choking with Sulphur and ash.
The building itself is made of stone. It is 700’ long and is lined with a metal.
Behind the bone wall there is a village where the guards appear to live. On the far side other demons guard creatures in cages.
Tiefling mage/thief started dispelling our spells. We engaged her and did nothing to her. She said she knows why we are here and does not intend to make it easy for us.
Quill casts a floating wizard eye and explores the cage area. Sparrowhawk protects him while he does this.
The cages are suspended from the ceiling on chains. All are connected together by chains. A number of brute-like lizard creatures guard along with a strange demon with crab claws.
60 small cages (20’ square) and 3 large cages holding a Balor and an angelic figure.
5 to 10 guards in total plus the boss.
4 Statues of demons.
We scout outside and see flying demons far overhead and gargoyle like creatures overlooking the bridges.
Inside we decide to talk to the demons on the other side of the bone wall. The golum is sent to bring Teghan over.
Fiend introduces herself. She is She-shara. Teghan introduces herself as Queen of the Realm of Incipidus. She is a minion of Demogorgan. She is here to capture a Priest who wields an artifact.
Demogorgan is coming to our world and he has taken a special interest in our world.
She has been asked to retrieve the priest in order to wield the artifact. If we find him before she does then please hand him over.
Cul-u-bal-axe warden – been playing too much. Squeezing the life out of them in many different ways. Particularly strong quake a while ago and a number of creatures escaped. Some prisoners have taken up places around the island.
Not many guards left – the prisoners took revenge. Thus the Wookie has not been taken straight to her.
Teghan trys to offer her the artifact in return for the Wookie. She refuses.
She believes that Teghan will be held here because of the strength of the Demonic blood. She offers to put in a good word with Demogorgon in return for the Wookie.
She tells us that the Wookie is on the other side of the island and she hopes that we will be able to cut through the beasts of the island.
We decide to attack the prison as a distraction while Teghan frees the Angel. The Angel cowers in a corner of its cell even when freed.
We killed 6 of the guards but 6 more closed on us. At this point we withdraw.
We explore the crevice which leads down to a seawater filled area. Underwater there are no exits. We sleep on our folding boat but are woken by the Demon woman demanding payment for resting where she can annoy us.
She returns and Tor offers to tell her future. He reads the runes.
“What will happen if you harass us all night”
- Good fortune and luck will happen if you choose a different approach
- If you continue to harass us it will lead to destruction
- Not the will of the gods if you choose to harass us
We try to sleep just outside but are disturbed by the volcano erupting. We move inside but but are attacked by the Demon woman and her minions.
Fed up with all of this we decide to attack the Demons beyond the wall.
We lost the fight and two of the party died. Two of them (one still alive) were carried off by the golum and Sparrowhawk dies trying to rescue them. The others were beat into the ground.
Teghan negotiated with the Demon
