Rumble In The Darkness - Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea Actual Play Event!

 Our heroes are now deep beneath the streets of a Hyperborea city state on a quest for a long lost Hyperborean treasure of deep importance! Will they survive the experience?!? Here's the  by play from last night's adventure!

So last night the player's PCs journeyed deep into the ruins of 'house of Elr'. There were 'dead' bodies everywhere & the players weren't expecting much resistance. What they got was a whole different ball game, strangely garbed warriors, odd lights, & a marked undead warriors caused them terror deep beneath the streets of Hyperborea.

They had descended into the catacombs beneath the house & fought other lesser monsters. But this was with a search part of undead Aztec style warriors/drone in full garb.They were armed with atomic disintegration wands and bad attitudes. The PC's ended up hiding in several stone coffins nearby as disintegration rays played around the room! Their cat girl hireling/slave assassin found herself under some strange mental other worldly influence! So they couldn't rely on her claws or prowess! They were on their own...

Several lucky shots by the PC's took down the drones & got the PC's time to regroup before something worse came back. The PC's were trapped in a room with no way out or so it seemed! But fortunely they had time to find the secret stairs that lead down to another level just before 'The Baleful Sorcerer of Tsathag'kha' had led his forces onto our heroes location!

Down, down, they went into the bowels of the city until they found themselves in an ancient Hyperborean teleportation chamber that lit up from the power crystals they had recovered last game! The place lit up as blue light came from above what would they do? Then suddenly a 'whoshing' absence of air, light, & a gout of mystic power propelled them to another part of the dungeon beneath the streets of Hyperborea!
Now they find themselves in the temple of Nodens deep in the thick of adventure!
Nodens, Lord of the Great Abyss! The whole complex lighted up as ancient power circuits clicked into place and the lord of the deep and lost places statue was lit with radium bulbs dormant for eons lit up! What new terrors await our heroes? Tune in next week!
