The party continues deeper and deeper into the mountain (horizontally, anyway). With Andraste and Taman leading, the rest of the party follows behind (Loghren, Dawn, and Walton spot veins of obsidian, and Dawn won’t let Loghren attempt to take any :( ). Eventually Taman and Andraste come across a fork in the road. When the party regroups with them, they decide to head down the path leading left, toward sounds of water.
They emerge into a large cavern some time later; the floor here is covered in a slimy…. substance, and pools of water are scattered across the cavern floor
its a pretty dank cave bruh. A huge river splits the cave in two, with only a rock bridge connecting the two.
Taman and Andraste are the first to venture into the cave
the inappropriate joke potential in this session is insane just a heads up, and being the graceful rogue she is, Andraste almost face plants into one of the pools. Luckily, Taman catches her and saves her thanks taman!. Unfortunately, the water seems to be moving on its own, and a glob of…. something emerges.
Dawn catches up, and attempts to poke the evil glob with a spare dagger. When she does so, the dagger hilt fizzes and smokes, ruining her dagger. Meanwhile Andraste backs away from the first glob, and manages to backpedal… straight into another pool. Taman pulls her out again, saving her from a second glob creature of doom.
Walton shows up next, but slips and slams straight into Taman, because he’s graceful like that. Meanwhile the first ooze attacks Dawn, making her armor smoke
RIP Dawn’s armor. Luckily, Andraste and Taman completely obliterate the ooze, saving Dawn. As Loghren moves deeper into the cavern, he slips and falls, sliding down into the river. As he holds onto the river bank, he realizes he’s lost Wyrm Sting…
Andraste goes to help Loghren, and manages to pull him out of the river. While he’s recovering, Andraste retrieves Wyrm Sting for him. However, this time, when she grabs it she sense Wyrm Sting’s power and bloodlust, and doesn’t necessarily want to give Wyrm Sting back to Loghren… When she hands it back, she warns him not to lose it again, or else
this is what happens when i try to be nice :(.
When Loghren goes to cross he bridge, Wyrm Sting whispers to him…s̶̢̰̞̦̙̒̔h̴̝͔̬̼̐̅̌͘ͅȩ̶̠̎͋̈́̏̈́͘ ̸̰̬̬̲̙̾̈́͑͜w̶̲͔̦͕̻̗̾̉̀͒ḁ̵̤̮̝̙̓̄ǹ̸͙̜̭̗̑̊̽͊t̵͉͙͔̫͑̀̅s̴͍̰̯͆ ̸̙̝̊͜m̷̤̘̻̙͑͆͂̕͝ḙ̸̞͐̊̿̎̇̀.̸̘̲̒̈̄.̷̟̗̤̆͂̋͝ͅ.̴͈̎́ ̴̝̽s̷̢̧͇͔̖̏̓͠͝ͅh̷̛̲̭̉̔e̵̘̗͍̦̻̓͜’̴̣̈́̐̕ṡ̴̗̝̰̥̝̹͘ ̵̱̜͖̣̥͗̿̚͝ͅn̷͍͚͕͍̥̗̏̍̾͆̔o̶̹̗̰̥͚̓̊͛ͅẗ̶̳͉̰̇͊ ̶͇̥̇͗w̸͓̻̺͆͋̇̊ö̷̱̯́r̵̩̬͎̦̳̠̂̿̕͘ť̶͉̠͚͊̔́̚h̶̼͚̎̐̎̏́͜ẏ̴̼̰̈͒̓͘…
NEITHER OF WHICH IS TRUE, FYI
Anyway, he trips over the bridge and falls on his face again (but it’s okay, Andraste helps him out again). Hamas and Alex also trip, and fall, multiple times. They start to make their way across the bridge, Taman makes it first, and Loghren, Dawn, Alex, Hamas, and Walton are close behind (Andraste is all the way at the other end).
Loghren, once near the other end of the bridge, falls again, and completely slips off the bridge. He catches himself on the edge, but is slipping. As that’s happening, a orb of light descends from the ceiling, slamming into the bridge and hurting everyone, except Andraste :D Andraste runs across the bridge next, and pulls up Loghren
it’s kinda like that one scene from the lion king, saving him once again.
In the distance, in the darkness, Taman sees a set of glowing eyes…
