Undermountain Session 01

Technically not our first session, but the first I'm posting here. Thomen (that's me), the Tallfellow Halfling, is searching for his missing halfling friends in Undermountain. So, far, all he knows is they were last seen/heard of on the third level.

He has three other adventuring companions: Malice, a female human monk, Diedra, a female human wizard, and Sturm, a dwarven cleric of Trithereon.

The last expedition into Undermountain, the group discovered a secret door leading to a dwarven tomb. They decided to explore further here, and found a large room with a tapestry.

Before they could begin investigating, two undead monsters came out from behind the tapestry, and attacked the party.

Things weren't looking good, especially after a third undead, a floating, flaming skull attacked the party.

The cleric, who normally doesn't have the strength of personality to turn undead cast a spell, and afterwords, was able to turn the undead, but just barely. One was killed as it was trying to flee, and the other ran away.

The flaming skull (double entrende intended) kept shooting rays out of its eyes are the group, and when it got weak, it retreated to the ceiling to heal. And, it cast spells from a distance.

The wizard's spells proved ineffective, as the skull was immune to most damage types, and very mobile. The monk and rogue/ranger were able to rush it quickly when it descended, and the cleric had a magical quarterstaff attack it. A good combination of hits brought it down.

Afterwords, the group found a strange mirror, which the monk promptly smashed, over the wizards protestations. Behind the mirror was an alcove with two detailed maps, a cold iron longsword, a magical ring of protection, and a small metal token of a bird.

After this short sojourn, the group returned to the yawning portal inn, and sold their findings.
