The Assignment

While on a mission to collect plant life on Storm Island, DRACO, Zilis, Salix, and Svamp find a massive tree, where a river diverges sending water down a fall into an underground cave system. After seeing a strange blob head down through the falls, leaving a trail of slime, they decide to follow it and see what it is.

Mission Summary

  • DRACO, upon seeing crystals, uncontrollably gathers them. The group discovers a mysterious mineral pool, with DRACO hearing voices urging him to drink the water, which he avoids. Instead, Svamp drinks, seeing visions of treasures leading them southward.
  • The party decides to hold off on the slime trail and explore the rest of the cave. To avoid crystals in the hall to the north, Zilis plans to cast water walk navigate the river.
  • Svamp explains to Salix and Zilis why they were avoiding the crystals, as she doesn’t want DRACO to be overcome by them once again. Salix tells DRACO to check his belongings for any. He did take some from the mineral pool, which lead to a panic attack. He runs from the party into the water.
  • The chase is on. They find a deep part of the water and an island. DRACO walks on the lake bottom. Before they could pull him up, a giant snapping turtle attacks.
  • Zilis tried to take refuge on the island but was attacked by slime creatures who were hiding amongst a set of dead bodies.
  • After the fight, they reconvened and calmed DRACO down, assuring him that his faults were necessary for him to be alive. Zilis and SALIX investigate the island, uncovering stone structures and a large coffin-like box among smaller ones, hinting at significant lore or treasure.
  • The session concluded as an old elven lady walks from a cave path questioning what all of the racket was about.
