Of What is to Come
"You stay the hell away from me." -Mage

The session opened with the party chasing after the bandit who escaped them earlier. After a few minutes, they arrived at two massive pairs of brass doors. Threatening to otherwise open the doors and warn the entire dungeon of their presence, the heroes agreed to have Van escort the bandit out of the dungeon with a promise of no further violence by either side.

While Van was off doing this, the temporary lull in the fighting allowed the party to heal and regroup. After a few minutes of planning, the party decided to investigate what lay behind them on the door to the left. Hearing nothing, Rythian and Soveliss forced open the door to find a vast library. While Rythian and Fraus searched the shelves in hopes of finding old-style porn(they did) Soveliss decided to check out a mysterious figure at the other end of the room. When he grew close, a voice commanded him to stay away. Seeing nothing but a barbarian in a cage overhead that could have made the noise, Soveliss took the natural next step of aiming an arrow at the figure’s headed. The figure then responded by lighting Soveliss on fire with a wave of his hand, which isn’t really all that surprising considering that he had just spoken to Soveliss without opening his mouth.

Rythian attempted to summon a crab-like monstrosity from another dimension to kill the mage, but the creature faded from existence just before it attacked. Finding inspiration in Rythian’s action, the mage then sealed off the library from the outside world before summoning literally hundreds of ghosts to finish off the party. In doing so, however, he accidentally broke the cage holding the barbarian in captivity, releasing him from his imprisonment. Choosing to side with the party, the barbarian, Thog, cut off the mage’s head, causing his illusory ghosts to disappear. The heroes accepted Thog’s request to join the party, while at the same time realizing that it had been 45 minutes since they had heard from Van despite the fact that it only took 10 minutes to travel in and out of the dungeon.

Through the Fire and Flames
"Run along now, scum. Run along to the next cheap bar and the next cheap beer. Run along..." -Dying half-elf

After waking up in the middle of a barren wasteland surrounded by the wreckage of a burning caravan with no recollection of how they got there, the heroes immediately proceeded to loot every dead body they could find. In addition, they only found one survivor, a young half-elf who accused the party of causing the destruction. Rythian’s The heroes’ response was to chop off his head “to make sure that he was dead” and then loot the body.

Following footprints they found at the scene, the party arrived in a small cave with a dungeon hidden in the back. Then, after utterly failing to safely descend into the dungeon, the heroes killed a pair of bandits that tried to kidnap them. The party then received sustenance.

Continuing into the dungeon, the party came across another group of bandits lounging around, which included a flail master and an odd figure who insisted on calling everybody “old sport”. The heroes managed to kill one of the bandits, blind another, and severely wound a third, who then escaped the room and managed to enter the main corridor. Realizing the need to stop him before he warned anyone else in the dungeon of their presence, the heroes pursued him. However, in what can only be described as karma for killing the half-elf just two hours earlier, they proved to be unable to actually do anything to slow him down.
