Clem's D&D Encounters

Legacy of the Crystal Shard Launch Event

The party was a part of a caravan bringing supplies from Luskan to Ten Towns in Icewind Dale. On their way to Bryn Shander in Ten Towns, the caravan was attacked by a large cat. The cat managed to damage one wagon in the caravan enough that it could not go on at that time. The party remained behind and helped the driver of the wagon to right and repair his wagon.

Once the wagon was righted and repaired, the party continued into Bryn Shander.

As the wagons from the caravan entered the gates of Bryn Shander, they were beset by yetis. As each yeti fell, it felt like two took its place. Eventually the yetis were repelled, and the party helped the town to recover from the sudden attack.

Mines of Madness Week 4

Past the obsidian mirror that was moved by the bard’s sacrifice, the party encountered an iron golem busy at work pulverizing red stone. Tharivol Silverclaw convinced the golem to help the party move a large boulder in order to enter the next chamber of the mines.

Past the boulder was a high ceilinged chamber filled with bat guano. The party was attacked by a giant bat and 12 cave crickets. Felin Du was knocked unconscious by a gang of crickets, but Tharivol Silverclaw’s work with a lotion of healing got him up again.

The party made it past a group of creatures disguised as stalactites before making it to a locked door covered in plates carved with dwarven runes. Once Tharivol Silverclaw had translated the runes, Felin Du managed to work out that the answer was to press the letters u-n-l-o-c-k in order to open the door.

Through the door, the party met a crypt thing that was once the mage Abracadamus. The mage requested a sacrifice as a sign of humility and Hug Hug appeared to be disintegrated. Then the mage attempted to tempt the party with treasures before posing a riddle. When Felin Du turned the riddle back on Abracadamus, he allowed the party through to the chamber where the Forever Stone was kept. Tharivol Silverclaw retrieved the Forever Stone from a font of Marty the bard’s blood.

The party returned to Baldur’s Gate after completing what they considered to be their last adventure before a nice retirement to politics.

Mines of Madness Week 3

The group discovered that it was safe to go through the mouth of the door that had previously turned them into electrum. Then they recovered a +1 warhammer from a case that had “In Case of Berserk Golem Break Glass” engraved on it.

On the way out of the room with the hammer, Tharivol Silverclaw tried to climb back out through the mouth and was transformed into a gelatinous elf-like being. The rest of the group took their chances with the doorknob and came through safely.

The group then encountered a gargoyle, a spear trap, and a secret door. Marty, the Bard, managed to get the command word for the door and the party was able to move on.

In the next chamber, there was an altar. Voices from an obsidian mirror told the party that “One must die for the others to advance.”

Marty chose to sacrifice himself for his party, and the obsidian mirror moved out of the way.

Mines of Madness Week 2

The group woke up from their restless sleep to find Felin Du had caught up to them. They went down a mineshaft where Felin Du was incapacitated by spores from a Yellow Mold. A potion made him get better though. Then they left the cockatrice room by another exit, and discovered a mimic disguising itself as a secret door. The mimic was awakened when Kronk threw a minecart at it, and the party made short work of the shapeshifter.

The party tried their luck with another mineshaft and discovered two rust monsters hiding at the bottom. Tharivol Silverclaw fought off the rust monsters while being raised up the mineshaft on a rope. The party crossed a chasm where a spirit attempted to trick them into jumping to their deaths, but the party ignored the pleas for help and continued on their way.

They got to a door carved with a dwarf’s face with an open mouth. The words “One good turn deserves another” were carved on the door. The party had a game of nose goes to see who opened the door. Hug Hug got tired of everybody sitting around doing nothing and grabbed the doorknob. Felin Du, Tharivol Silverclaw, Hug Hug, and Heian were immediately turned to piles of electrum coins. Kronk collected the coins and returned to the entrance of the mines, where the piles became his friends again.

Party again took a long rest, but did not regenerate any hit dice used.

Mines of Madness Week 1

The Mines are home to a whispered-of artifact known as “The Forever Stone”. The party has traveled from Baldur’s Gate to the Mines seeking the Stone. In an outhouse outside the entrance to the Mines, the party encountered a Purple Worm.

Once the worm was vanquished, the party discovered a magical trap on the entrance which was disarmed by speaking the Dwarvish word “Pax,” meaning “Great”. Past the entrance, the party encountered a group of cockatrices, and saved a goblin adventurer named Hug Hug.

The party chose to rest before venturing further into the Mines, though their dreams were troubled and they woke up still exhausted. Party did not regenerate hit dice but received other benefits of long rest
