Burning Witch Adventurers Session #76- Return to Adventure

 It had been a long time since a group of adventurers had gathered in the Burning Witch with one purpose in mind--to delve below the earth on an underworld adventure! Inspired by recent events, this hiatus was brought to an end by GaWoosh, Hate Pit, PakPak, and Wolfgang. Joining them at their table sat the recent gnomish rescuee Buddy B. Barksdale as he made a stop on his drinking tour of Orm.  Fellow patrons and eavesdroppers could hear them discussing the cold war inside the Complex between the Eye of Terror and the Imperial Mother. Patrons did not been to be a nosey gnome to overhear Barksdale loudly proclaim, "Me and my gnomies?!? We can come to the surface *hick* as we please!", as he stumbled out of the tavern to relieve himself on the Monument of the Old Gods.

With the departure of Buddy, the groups conversation turned toward the Rani's 10% tax on treasure leaving the Complex at the cliff-side entrance. After weighting which was worse: taxes or potential death at the hands of the ooze lurked by the sealed northern Level 1 entrance; the party seemed to settle on some other purpose. The following group stopped by the ShopShop and gathered up some rations before heading into the ruins of Orm-of-Old:

  • GaWoosh (Level 4? Gnome)
    • Tamm Wise (Level 1 Elf hireling)
  • Hate Pit (Level 4? Vat Spawn)
  • PakPak (Level 5 Kobold)
  • Wolfgang (Level 3 Duelist)
A day later, the party returned smelling of humus and earth but otherwise not much worse for wear. The party wear seen divide pile of silver coins before heading off their separate ways.

In the nights that followed, the crowd at the Drinking Crow could swear they heard faint songs of hidden treasure, underground jungles, a statue that transformed the ground around it into a wasteland, and feral dwarves that longed to bring an end to kobolds that scarred the earth. Some thought the voice was more than a bit similar to that marooned Sunset Elf Tamm Wise.
