Next game will be 9/12/15 Recap of our last meet: Having just discovered the Barghest den, the party climbed down the pitch black cave entrance, using a handy lantern to light the way. Inside, the party found themselves in a very narrow tunnel that appeared to have an abundance of silver ore embedded within the walls. as soon as they made this discovery, they were (Carrot specifically) attacked by a Darkmantle that was hiding on the ceiling. Carrot almost got eaten like a carrot, but the party managed to kill the Darkmantle before any permanent damage was done. They decided to leave the silver ore for later, despite Carrot's interest in finally using his trusty miner's axe. at the end of the tunnel, they discovered a creepy open cavern that appeared to be housing a sleeping Barghest. After a series of mildly successful sneaks and more-than-mildly unsuccessful search attempts, the party eventually discovered that the sleeping Barghest was, in fact, a dead Barghest. Shortly thereafter they noticed two imposing devil-like creatures likely responsible for the killing. After a long debate on whether or not to attack the two head-on, the party eventually decided it would be prudent to wait for the larger and admittedly more sinister of the pair to leave. This eventually came to pass, and upon its passing, the (self-proclaimed) sneakiest members of the party made a vain attempt to sneak up on the remaining Barghest-killer. The failure to sneak sparked the bearded devil's notice, and a battle ensued. The Bearded Devil summoned not 1... not 2... not even 10... but 18 underlings into the fray right at the start of the encounter. A break was had by all players, as the trusty DM was tasked with creating all 18 new entrants into the fray, as well as assigning each an initiative, as well as a health rating. Once the impromptu siesta was over, the Bearded Devil showed just how fierce it was by taking away about half of the hp of both (un)sneaky party members. They decided to run, but changed their minds when the spellcaster of the party managed to blind the Bearded Devil. With some nifty spell uses from the party cleric, and Carrot's new found greatsword, the party managed to kill everything. Let it be known, however, that the DM did not play the Bearded Devil correctly, and didn't account for his damage resistance, so the battle was much shorter than it could have been. And it was long. Very long. So the DM is okay with what he did. Right as they slew the last minion, the party looted the Bearded Devil for some pretty sweet loot. We left our party as they were learning that the Bearded Devil's friend seemed to have heard the commotion, and was making his way towards the party.
