We rejoined our Monteport session after a two week delay. Our brave party stood in front of two spider born of earth. We had witnessed the battle between them and the giant ants and saw that their bite turned their victims into stone. This was after our GM, +Ken H's computer decided to update for one hour.
While +Chris C. and I were about to engage the enemy, we heard from behind us, "Non-hostiles in your rear". It was early and the best thing I heard all night. It was +Rob Conley playing his clerical investigative duo, Muller and Skull accompanied by four dogs.
We managed to kill the spiders in short order. We then had a short conversation with our new party mates and continued further into Monteport.
Our party had the map from the previous party's exploration. We'd set up a trade route with some of the factions within the dungeon. Now we were focused on the dark spaces unexplored.
We traveled deeper into the ant tunnels and discovered a small horde of undead. A mixture of zombies, ghouls and a vampire spawn. It was a brutal battle. We lost a henchmen named Skittle, Muller died from the spawn bite as did three of his dogs, including Goliath, which I think we mourned the passing most.
After the battle and calculating the body count we investigated the casket and altar in the room. Inside we found a treasure hoard and discovered that the casket belonged to one Sebastian Bynard Finister. A known vampire that controls a section of Monteport.
Until next week, this concludes this episode of, It was a Three Dog Night.
