Session 13 (Demise)

The bases of one of the Sharn towers is on fire…Distraction? We land as close to the tomb as we dare…Our pirate air captain thanks us and tells us to give him a call if we need help again…We are near the Taint Foundry…Not far to the tunnels…We don’t get far in when we run into a bunch of trained Drakes…One big Rage drake, four Spitters, and a bunch of Guard drakes…The fight goes well, they wear us down a little…We forge on…This time we reach the first tomb room with the pyramid of skulls…Looks like they animated a bunch of dead Kruthiks we were so good as to leave for them…Also in the mix are two Emerald Claw tanks and the elf with the goofy skull tattoo from when we first met Demise…This is a good long fight…In what has become standard practice, we just punch a hole through their lines, everyone but Sam surges after the back line…We then decide to try and use the area to our advantage…We take to the Kruthik tunnels and bypass most of the tomb…This actually works and we make it back to the large actual tomb in the back…We try to sneak up on them…No dice…The ritual is well underway, the large triple statue in the middle has a magic circle drawn around it…The hot librarian is stretched out on the sarcophagus in the back…Demise is on the far side of the ritual circle…There are four ghouls and half a dozen armored corpses…The bad guys beat most of our initiatives and form a defensive line…Jake sets off the ghouls readied actions and gets charged by three…They all miss…Jake decides to press on with his plan, provoking from all three…This time they all hit and he is immobilized…Crawgle tries to get around and pulls the last of the charges and gets pinned on the far side by a ghoul…Now that the way is safe, Pierce rolls in with a close burst 2 rage and gets two crits…He also discovers that the armored corpses are minions…The free attack from the crit drops the ghoul on Crawgle…Guii then steps up and Color Sprays to clear the minions and damage/daze the remaining ghouls…The librarian gets up and starts walking tward us thanking us for saving her (RED ALERT!!!)...Demise is launching necrotic attacks at us, but we have broken the front line…We all chase her around until she is dead…The librarian seems to be able to possess us and make us attack each other, or to hit us and make her invisible to that person…We just save her for the end…The ritual takes three days to perform so we just take all the crown pieces…We loot up and find Demise’s Staff of Ruin is a nice item, just not for this party…We head out…We find that we did bypass one welcoming party…We find in the devil room a pair of corpses with daggers in their backs…We suspect our double agent….
