Session #14
The Skittering

As we went to exit the cave, we were surprised to see the hallway filled with a strange slime, with strange insect-like creatures tending to green orbs. As Froggie tried getting through the bugs with an unthreatening stance to dissuade them from attacking, we heard the giggling behind us, growing into a chorus of voices.

As Froggie got further through the room, the slime in the room made it hard for him to get through. But then he saw a strange bug blocking the entrance, with a golden head and chitin making it look well-protected. Miri tried camoflaging herself, making herself the same color as the egg-looking orbs, and the bugs picked her up and started trying to line her up with the others against the wall. Froggie was trying to keep them all calm, then turned into a swarm of frogs; but apparently the bugs wanted to eat all the little frogs, so things went kind of crazy.

We all attacked the bugs, and we managed to hurt them a bit before the chitin guy sprayed us all with acid. Russ killed one of the bugs, and thankfully, they all got really close together, and Froggie managed to hit them all with a crazy attack. Then the golden-head guy started trying to break open an egg, but Miri pushed him away from it. We kept fighting, but the chitin guy was really strong.

The whole time, the sounds of battle were getting closer from behind us, along with the sound of maniacal laughter. One of the voices sounded like Brindol, but there was also the crazed giggling of a young girl. The fighting was getting closer.

The golden head guy was refusing to die, and he cracked open one of the eggs on the wall. But thankfully, we managed to kill him before he could open it fully and let out whatever was inside.

We ran out of there, with Miri holding back a wave of energy long enough for us to get out of the cave. Then we collapsed the entrance and left. Once we got a ways away, there was a huge explosion of dirt and dust behind us. We kept going.

We got into town, and I went to Kilka’s orphanage to rest. Froggie went into town while Miri and Queso talked to Thar’Gul, and… well apparently it didn’t go too well. We got fired. But Queso started working on a presentation to get a grant from the university to go check it out, so we should hopefully still get paid for getting the Tetrahedron.

The Personal Diary of a King: Entry 2
On Snaggle

My power and sway greatens with every day. Not long ago, I gained my very first loyal servant, the goblin Snaggle. Queso mentioned something about him being masochistic. A great king such as myself certainly understands this word, and will have no need to consult a dictionary at a later point to comprehend its meaning.

I may need to get a servant not quite so broken next time. Something to consider.

Session #15

Queso and Miri went into the office of Dean Moneypenny to try and convince her to fund the expedition. She would not make a decision until she had seen everyone, so the King and I had to go in as well. We tried to prove to her that we were capable, the expedition was worthwhile, and our bonds were strong, but she was not convinced. Unfortunately, she said she could not grant us the money.

The King tried to get funding from the Animal Science department, claiming they could follow him and study him, but the dean of the department just tried to kill him to dissect him. So that didn’t go well.

Queso asked for an intern, and Moneypenny told him a student named Milka could go with him. It was obvious she wanted Milka out of the college. When Queso visited her, she… well, she seems super ditzy to me. I don’t know if she’ll survive the first five minutes. But alright.

We decided to head to another college in Sai’ghuh, to try and get their support. Milka showed up late and didn’t want to get on the Leviathan, but Miri made her a potion to make her fall asleep. She drank it before even getting on the train (seriously, the first five minutes), and she fell and dropped her bag. She had more books than clothes. And I think, if Kilka were here, she would have turned my head away from some of the covers. Huh.

We stopped in Ginko (Queso got some rituals), and went on to Sai’ghuh. Milka woke up on the way, but she freaked out and The King bonked her on the head to put her back to sleep.

When we got to Sai’Ghuh, we were surprised to see the cleanliness and sterility of the place. The King and I stayed at the inn (for the best) while Miri and Kilka went to Dean Valur’s office at Sai’ghuh’s college. Thankfully, he was interested in the expedition, but asked that we take an associate of his, and give the Tetrahedron to him for another 500 gold.

Before agreeing, Queso wanted to meet this other person we would take with us, so we went to the tavern, where we were supposed to meet him. Eventually, a really gruff orc came in and sat at the bar. We brought him over to the table and he introduced himself as Kevgretor, our muscle for the trip. Queso got us all beers. I was excited to try it, but EW THAT WAS THE WORST THING I’VE EVER TASTED EW EW EWWWWWW

Queso got my mouthful of beer sprayed all over him. The King liked his though. Milka also drank… a lot.

The orc is mean. He made fun of me. I don’t like him.

The next day, Dean Valur looked over the contract, which Queso had changed to include an imperative inclusion of representatives from all the city-states in the Tetrahedron’s study, and he agreed to it. So we did some shopping with the funding and left.
