Two Forks

I Pocket The Finger And Move On
Season 2 Episode 15

The remaining members of Team SSS go about the business of resurrecting Gilly. Faced with a cost of 10 000 gold for a resurrection, the Team opts for the cheaper method of using their scroll of reincarnate. By convincing a druid to cast the scroll on a finger Mourn cut from her, Gilly was reincarnated as a young, human female.

With Gilly (now Rose) back from the dead, Team SSS turned their thoughts to revenge. They sneak into Trodd’s house in the dead of night and Mourn successfully murders a sleeping man, only to find it’s Trodd’s son. Disguising himself as the son, Mourn goes for a second try. Trodd dies but also wakes his wife who quickly sees through the disguise. The Team fight Trodd’s household guard as they flee with Gilly going as far as to use Trodd’s infant children as a shield.

Don't Throw Cheese In Bone Houses
Season 2 Episode 14

Savaros and Mourn find themselves at a loose end in the slave district. Unable to train their drunk companions until the next evening, they drink the night away. The following day they head out shopping for a mask to hide Mourn’s scaled face. After an eventful trip, they catch wind of a duel between a warrior named Trodd and Kodonia’s newest warrior.

Whilst the other two drink, Gilly, Arrora and Urist are invited to a party. Arrora gets blackout drunk but Gilly is able to gather a lot of information about the warriors. They are roughly evenly split into two factions, the traditionalists and the expansionist younger warriors. A man named Trodd bullies the other guests and Gilly intervenes, getting the victim to a carriage home. Urist and Trodd have a scuffle but it escalates when Gilly rejoins them and starts a food fight. Trodd challenges her to a duel.

After a night looking for a place to sleep, an exhausted Gilly heads over to the duel. She soon finds herself outmatched as Trodd repeatedly trips and then hits her with a chain. Frustrated, Gilly rallies by retreating each time she trips and catching Trodd as he charges her. Unfortunately, just as tactic starts to wound him, he unleashes two spells borrowed from a friend and stored in his weapons. Gilly is left frozen on the duelling ground, dead.

Margarol!
Season 2 Episode 13

After meeting publicly in a cafe, Team SSS decide to head to Reldon’s Cave, codenamed Wilson’s Cave for a more private conversation. Wilson’s cave being a popular bar in Kodonia made it easy to talk about meeting there in public, but the less than intelligent Team SSS never know which Wilson’s cave they mean.

Reldon offers to transform Mourn back from being a gnome with a spell that will cycle randomly through races until one is chosen or the spell fizzles out. In typical fashion, Mourn allows the human form to pass in hope of more. The spell dies out, leaving him a troglodyte.

Savaros, Mourn and Urist just manage to re-enter the city, with Mourn forced to magically assume the guise of Margarol: A foreign human fighter who can only say her own name.

Arrora buys a slave in the hopes of infiltrating society and chooses a disgraced former warrior. Gilbert suggests using him as a trainer in a fighting school she intends to start.

Is It Because I'm A Dwarf?
Season 2 Episode 12

A revolution takes much planning and Team SSS are ready for the long game.

Gilly , Arrora and Urist infiltrate society. The whole team go on an essence reaver hunt and bring back two corpses. Kodonia welcomes Gilly and Urist as heroes. However, Urist’s time of celebration is cut short when the librarian he maimed accuses him of attempted murder. Hours later, after showing the intense will required to lie in a Zone of Truth, Urist is free to walk the city. Arrora uses her free time to drink with two of the most prominent slave owners in the city and finds out that a sale is on the next day.

Mourn chooses to enter the slave district and find those he can gather around him for the uprising. A trip to the temple of Olidammara leads him to a basement in the slave district that appears to be part illegal bar, part temple and potentially the headquarters of a thieves’ guild. He agrees to fence a stolen magic draining crystal and arm the people there as a show of good faith.

Are We SURE This Is A Good Idea?
Season 2 Episode 11

Navigating their way through the final trial, the room of Magic, Team SSS stumble upon Reldon’s final resting place.

Crucified with four magic draining crystals pinning him to the wall, Reldon was alive but unable to free himself. The crystals themselves drained into the inert bodies of four essence reavers, preventing them from overloading.

Reldon, a former slave, fused with the ‘power’ that runs the city and became incredibly powerful. He tried to start a revolution and was punished for his actions. Convinced that Reldon was truly a victim in all that had happened, Team SSS decide to give him a second chance.

The revolution begins.

Season 2 Episode 10

The effects of the temple start to show and whole days of dungeon delving pass in a blur for members who haven’t seen the light of day for unknown amounts of time.

But seriously, I never wrote this summary because I knew which rooms we did (Sun, Travel, Plant) and couldn’t work out what took a whole session.

The Minute War
Season 2 Episode 9

Team SSS enter the Strength room and find themselves face to face with an iron golem trapped inside a metal destroying dome. Gilly steps into the ring but it takes the additional efforts of Savaros and Arrora to finally push the golem into the walls of the dome and destroy it.

Pressing on, the team are transported to a hilltop by a portal in the War room. A giant timer in the sky counts down a minute as an endless army charges up the hill. Team SSS survive the minute but are grievously wounded. Leaving the room of war, the team burn most of their remaining resources to heal.

Exploding acid monsters in the room of Destruction prove no challenge and so the adventures rest with 3 more rooms marked off their list.

Manservant or Rhinocerous?
Season 2 Episode 8

Resting in the corridor between the rooms of Chaos and Trickery, Team SSS finally remember to search for secret rooms. They find their second room, marked “Supply Drop 3”. Finding more than just a health potion, they backtrack to find drop 2, between Knowledge and Death. Team SSS press on, now carrying two magic draining crystals, four of which are apparently required to contain Reldon.

The trap filled room of Trickery proves tough for Team SSS and they only make it one room further. They rest in the room of Good. Now they face the room of Strength. Team SSS know the staff they seek is in one of the following rooms and there are only seven to go until they enter the resting place of Reldon.

A Man, A Gnome and A Magic Trident
Season 2 Episode 6

Delving deeper into the tomb, Team SSS are confronted by an earth elemental. The colossal creature proves challenging for the group but they rally and Urist gets the killing blow.

Moving on, they come across the Law room. Mourn cannot resist the magical weapons on the wall despite representing an obvious trap. Sure enough, as he steals a rapier from the wall, he initiates a fight with the now animated weaponry. The party promptly runs away.

This leads them into the room of luck where each member of the team is subjected to a random magical effect. Gender, race and personalities are altered.

Walking effortlessly through the animal room due to Arrora’s empathy with all things wild, the team prepare to face the Knowledge room.
