Undermountain Exploration

Postby Kemian » Mon May 30, 2016 6:58 pm

The troupe of six adventurers of all manner and background had been gathered together by an arm of the Watchful Order to perform a surveying task in Undermountain. Certain members of the Watchful Order had a theory that they wished to have verified or disproved. That the configuration of Undermountain actually remained the same but the perception of the adventurers and investigators were somehow altered so that it appeared as though the dungeons walls and configuration periodically changed. So the task was simple though nothing in Undermountain is EVER easy. They were to take a crystal given to them by the Watchful Order to four different rooms in Undermountain and touch the crystal to the walls, ceiling and floor of the four rooms. Then they were to return to the Yawning Portal with the crystal.

The events of the four rooms were myriad and varied, there were curses unleashed, overreaction and mass murder, even victory and celebration, and finally foolishness that ended with a portal trip to Ardeep Forest. The six escaped with their lives and the crystal and some loot.

The group finds the following amongst the remains of the adventuring group they came across:

2 Master Work Daggers - resale value 151 GP each
A Wand of Invisibility with 20 Charges - resale value 900 GP
598 Gold in coins and gems.

Divided evenly six ways the value comes out to 300 gold if everything is sold. Anyone wishing to leave the group will also receive a service stipend from the Watchful Order but they assure you anyone continuing on will receive a much larger stipend.

Also each of you gets 1 of the following items:
Scrolls: Lesser Restoration, Remove Curse
Potions: Remove Curse, Cure Moderate Wounds x 3

(Post up here ICly on who is planning on continuing, and who is leaving. If you are leaving and want one of the items found in the loot, post that too please.)

*Edit* The watchful order has agreed to swap any one of the consumable items for any 1 item of comparable value. (In other words they will swap a Cure potion for a Remove Curse. They will also take the scrolls and replace them with potions as well. So if you want a CMW Potion or a Remove Curse potion, you can have it.)

Venegas notes the items and would be happy with a Potion of CMW for the time being, and will continue on with the outings.

Burgon didn't exactly enjoy the trip, but it was both local and reasonably refined. There's been worse. He will continue to lend his services, requesting the potion of Remove Curse, oddly enough.

The Gnome is a bit curious about that - inquiring with Burgon why he doesn't go for the scroll instead? (Perhaps on account of being interested in the potion herself.) Otherwise she seems quite content to wait until their next outing together

Burgon explains it is easier for say... a duck... to drink a potion than read a scroll. Hence his first thought was to take a potion. However, Burgon is happy to pass the potion on to his most busty companion and hope that he'll not be in a position to need the scroll anyway...

Faust will take his share in gold. He seems reticent to commit to any further forays considering, yet feels a sense of responsibility for actions he was, by association, party to. He will continue on to the best of his ability until he is assured the party will not suffer the consequences of the actions of but one of their number, be that by shooting first and asking questions later, or by abandoning them...

Julia will take the Wand of Invis, a scroll of Remove Curse, and seems interested in doing more work.

((Since the curse stuff is apparently super popular I'll just go for one of the cure potions))

With the respite provided from making it to the underground hamlet of Underhaven you group is able to take a few moments to take stock of the bag of potions that you discovered. Unfortunately, the cost to Identify magic weapons, armor and wondrous items while in Undermountain is significantly higher than it is in Waterdeep. So for now you console yourself with the following potions.

1 Potion of Remove Curse

1 Potion of Lesser Restoration.

2 Potions of Cure Serious Wounds.

1 Potion of Remove Blindness/Deafness

Julia immediately consumes the potion of Remove Curse negating the need for her to purchase one to remove her affliction. The rest of you figure that now might be an ideal time to divy up at least the potions in case you need them for your journey home or you journey to Belkram's Fall. (More about Underhaven and Belkram's Fall to follow soon.)

Venegas is content to let the others use what they need, if they need it, and continue on to Belkram's Fall.

((Red has some interest in Remove Blindness/Deafness, and Lesser Restoration, in that order.))

Burgon, having chosen a remove curse last time, offers Red first pick this time. He selects lesser restoration since he is a cleric and is not short on healing.
