"Excellent - a potion.   I'll keep that in case we need it." she pcokets the phial.

Then she reaches for the red book, and pulls it out even more gently.

The red book appears to have once been a bestiary of sorts. Unfortunately most of it is now fairly illegible. As Rhana reads is pages crumble and some flutter to the floor. The following section, however, is in good repair and quite readable:

Blood Beast:

It is a horrific, bloated creature with tough, spiny skin and facial blisters which burst open to become "mock eyes", evolved to hide the Blood Beast's only weakness - it's real eyes. Blood Beast's usualy dwell in pools of fetid slime which give off a poisonous gas. This gas is so strong that it can easily render a man unconscious. The Blood Beast, although too large to haul itself out of it's slime pool, has a long and vicious tongue which it wraps around it's victims before it drags them into it's pool. As the victims decompose in the vile slime, the Blood Beast will feed on them.


As Rhana nears the end of this passage Throm raises a hand and declares that "hold, I hear something approach" from raround the corner. He grips his axe and prepares for battle.

Rhana gently puts down the remains of the book, and readies her staff and her wand.

Surprise round:

A pair of large burly cave trolls round the corner bearing heavy clubs. Throm lashes out, his axe sends the first troll's head flying in a spray of black blood. The second troll blunders on only to meet Dekion's blade across the chest, opening a savage cut that bleeds deeply.

Round 1:

Throm buries his axe in it's skull roaring in triumph and the two trolls are no more.

Dekion smiles as he cleans off his blade, "It is good to have a brother in arms join the group." Dekion cautiously goes around the corner to look to see what is in that direction.

Okay, big cockup. In my eagerness to update the game I missread the map and actualy skipped a room or two. Normaly I wouldn't do this but it's Deathtrap Dungeon so it's worth doing properly. I'm putting you where you should be (at the corner) and we'll go from there. I've saved everyone's posts to a text file as backup.

Glancing around the corner Dekion can clearly see that the hallway broadens out into a cavern With a tall ceiling (around 25' high) and a rock strewn floor. Long dripping teeth-like stalactites hang threateningly, their constant dripping creating milky white pools on the cave floor. The passageway continues on through a demonic shaped archway in the far wall of the cavern.

Rhana is right behind Dekion.

"How bijou. A mini cavern conveniently located in the middle of your own dungeon."

The cave's not quite to scale. It's actualy about twice that wide and twice that long. I just used the closest thing I had in floorplans without bothering to resize it.

The group advances into the cavern and nothing untoward happens. A small mouse spies their advance and runs under a large rock. Throm laughs as it scurries away and his big booming laughter echoes about the chamber. Underneath the rock Sarian and Rhana spy an old rucksack full of something wedged into the hollow.

"Sarian, can you see anything untoward with that rucksack?  I'm a little suspicious with it being wedged under a rock like that."
