The group of Aly, Ashley, Connor and Justin succesfully defeated the 3rd and 4th trials tonight. The first trial consisted of taking out a raging Goristro and multiple death knights. Down below in a hidden chamber they found the Raven Queen Skull she requested and stored a healing surge each in the magical item.

Then they advanced to the fourth trial where they took out a death giant who was burning scrolls and books and a team of smaller spiders.

Finally they advanced to the 5th trial and found Mauglirien (one of the ebon riders) who had killed Fadhira (the keeper of the trial grounds) and was holding onto her soul along with a few reanimating corpses and 3 rot hurlers.

The group dispatched of them all and during the fight Mauglirian summoned the lich king to fight by his side. The group battled hard and killed all of the evil forces.

Fadhira’s soul persisted just long enough to open a portal to the raven queens lair and the group took a well deserved extended rest.

huzzah!

The group consisting of Fudbuck, Abraxus, Erdan and the Wild Card teleported to Zroman and started their series of trials in order to be granted access to speak with the Raven Queen.

Their first trial consisted of fighting 2 hordes of ghouls, a nasty caster that alternated stunning and dazing connor and aly and finally 2 rotting hurlers. Aly started off by killing both rotting hurlers in like 1 turn, insane. Then the group came to halt as their dps was stunned and dazed and the hordes took half damage from range or melee attacks.

Eventually however the group emerged victorious and stood in the thorns to unlock the first gate, passing trial 1.

The second trial consisted of 3 bone nagas, and another nasty caster. The group was far more effective in dispatching this pack of creatures and quickly bathed in the cleansed cistern to pass the 2nd trial.

They are taking a short rest getting ready for the next series of trials, huzzah!

The group of Fudbuck, Abraxus and Dr. Jonathon Pipes ventured up to the top of the spire and encountered Urishtar Nightwyrm. He split up into 3 versions of himself and it was a long battle. Fudbuck died 3 times during the battle but the group ultimately succeeded. Then the group leveled up to 21 and became Epic Tier adventurers. Unbeknownst to the rest of the party, Sleazy was busy top 8ing a Magic the Gathering Tournament.

In the dragons horde they found 5000 platinum a few astral diamonds, 2 unhatched eggs and a scroll that had something about death’s reach and souls over and over again. They also found a soul ring that had Jothan Ironspells soul. They left the Shadowfell and returned to Vaestar to help resurrect Jothan. During which Sleazy saw a vision of a powerful mage that told him they need to go moonstair and travel and speak with the eladrin king in the feywild to find out about what is happening between the Raven Queen and Lord Orcus.

The group returned to MoonStair and it has transformed into a huge city and is now the capital of the continent. While they were in the shadowfell time has progressed in a nontraditional order so its been 15 years. Sleazy had a 3 way with the leader of Moonstair and her husband. Granted they are both 55 year old humans but he was down with that. Then they had a situation in which a man was found to rape little boys and the group had to decide what to do the man. They decided to set him up in the town square for a week in which anyone could come up and rape him for a week and then they burned and killed him. This laid down a very strict punishment system for the city of Moonstair.

Eventually the traveled to the FeyWild and spoke with the King Eladrin. Here they learned that Lord Orcus was a total dick. He had enlisted a large group of undead warriors called the Ebon Riders to assault the Raven Queens hold in hopes of killing her so Orcus can become the King of Death. Here they learned about many of the lieutenants and their powers and also learned that there is a powerful walled off section in the shadowfell called Death’s Reach and that Orcus’s cult is trying to access it to find very powerful magical items and primordials who have been trapped there to help Orcus defeat the raven queen.

Then the group used its ritual portal to travel to the shadowfell to the Vrimora to past the trials to go speak to Raven Queen. When they cast the portal instantly a group of the Ebon raiders teleported in and assaulted the group. They defeated the party which included a lich. They lich’s phylactery wasn’t in that location so when he was destroyed his soul teleported back to its true location and he isn’t truely dead.

After they defeated this small group of Ebon Raiders the group progressed towards Vrimora in order to pass the trials. At this point the group called it a night and got ready to progress towards the Raven Queen.

Huzzah!

The first ever 3 man group ventured deeper into Urishtars spire.

Sleazy, Abraxus and Fudbuck slayed a medusa and some minotaurs. In particular justin broke every encounter by mass CCing every single mob on the board over and over again.

The group ventured up to the Knowledge room and the Inquisition room and took out Varun a rakhshasa noble and Cairun a rakshasa assasin.

They realize now that only Urishtar waits at the top of the spire and are planning to slay the dragon as the progress next session.

Good Job everyone!

The group scaled the battlefronts and encountered a large group of salads, wait i mean salaads. Connor was trying to continually immobilize the salads but unfortunately salads have the innate ability to teleport. Thus breaking Connor.

However the group killed them all and got the final soul ring. Which then summoned the maggot lord Magrathar.

This 4 pronged maggot wizzard railed on Justin over and over and over again. Continually killing him , but somehow Justin prevailed. I think at one point justin was standing above himself watching himself sing, he was combination of Fergie and Jesus.

However the group won and were granted a total of two +5 weapons and the ring of magrathar. They are now attuned to enter Urishtar’s tower and are headed towards the end of this long run to kill Urishtar and stop the souls being erased.

The group was first encountered by 2 ghosts. These ghosts were dealing with a wild minotaur who couldn’t deal with the talk of science anymore (word is he was running back and forth between them all the time and trying to destroy their books), They eventually took care of the wards that were keeping them trapped in a room and let the ghosts out.

Then the progressed on to fight a bad ass Glabrezu and a couple weak rage hulks rather handidly on the way to fight the main Azer taskmaster. That fight went relatively smooth and the group found the thrid platinum soul ring they need to access the dragon’s tower.

Then the group moved onto the fourth wing to fight a nasty 6 headed hydra. After much debate they took out the hydra and found a spot to take an extended rest.

Well this is relatively an unproductive night but we got back on track. The group only cleared two encounters before Ken got summoned to fight another beast, 2 MICE! He was then critically hit by a dead battery and summoned his wife’s parents for a ride. What a series of summons.

The group has leveled up to level 20 and is only one level away from epic tier!!

Session 37

The group started off by entering the frost wing.

All of the encounters were frost resistant (fuck you connor and aly) But they were still able to advance fairly quickly.

They made it through the first encounter fairly easy, and on the second encounter Guzzle returned, and not only did he returned but he returned in pure Parker fashion, involving a skill challenge sequence (in which failed checks resulted in you being drunk), a deluge of vines (which were edible, but when eaten made you drunk) and he arrived naked and unconscious with a dead “bearded naked devil”. Reasons … unknown.

Then the group entered the third encounter, when Justin tried to one man the third encounter. At some point after 400 damage the group realized that maybe that attack was a tad overpowered. After reading the word “daily standard action” we realized the attack was a one turn power. Furthermore Justin immediatly decided to become a moderator on the DnD forums so he can back his belief that he should be even more overpowered. For the next three hours Justin alternated crying in a corner and complaining that his encounters are better than his dailies. In actuality he sucks at choosing dailies.

Finally the group defeated the final encounter when justin used his encounters to lock down entire segments of the room. At some point they just threw swords in desperation. But in all the group cleared the second wing of the dungeon.

The group fought there way down a necrotic corridor in which the first and third sections were infused with a powerful -10 necrotic energy pulse but the middle section had a strong +10 radiant pulse. The group dispatched of 4 abysal ghouls and, 2 bone nagas and a dude at the end who was way stronger but was locked down the entire fight (fuck you tait, oh wait that makes no sense why would I say that, lol)

They then encountered a really strong level 24 dragon whose phylactery was being held in the next room. They diplomatically reasoned with the dragon to create an exchange, his phylactery for the dragons platinum and weapons.

The group went into the final room, killed a ton of really strong ghouls and a NightWalker. They fought bravely, well for the most part. Connor and Justin mostly sat in the corner and dodged the necrotic pulses. Actually Connor succesfully burst most of the necromatic magic on Ashley. They then found the first of the 4 soul rings and found two +5 weapons and leveled up 19! Huzzah.

The group started off with a bang, literally a bang of ice exploded as the Archangel of Vengence emerged from below. Naturally Connor pulled the angel of death, and naturally the angel had a continual teleportation next to connor for the rest of encounter. Even better he got killed on his first turn. The group eventually cleared the room, level up to 18 and then Justin had to use his love device (aka bro-skull of masturbation) to teleport into the Sartin Tomb. There the found Sartin skull, a very powerful, and now happy, skull. The group then continued on into the room with the giant black obelisk and killed off the Efreet and his fire archon cronies. Thanks to Aly shouting from the other room who the figured out the puzzle immediately they solved the puzzle stepping on the buttons that spelled out light.

Then they teleported into the Shadowfell and were immediatly encountered by a group of wraiths. These were some nasty wraiths with auras that sucked away surges and weakened. The highlight was Justin getting an opprotunity and missing horribly, and then later critting with a melle basic and dealing a whopping 15 damage. But Justin has never been so excited for 15 damage before. BROOO!! With all the “Bronuses” and “Bro0-ken” abilities the “League of Extradoniary Gentleman” cleaned up.

They then walked in Magthedar’s Teeth and cleared out the first stench filled room killing a bunch of wights and ghouls. The group is now low on surges and has yet to find a safe place to recharge.
