The Assignment

After leaving Firbolg territory, Wisp, Vels, Khaligrim, and Clover follow the trail of the ooze that came from the Giant Rune temple to find the source and stop it from infecting anything else.

Mission Summary

  • The party investigates the source of strange slimy ooze in the Firbolg-made temple to the Giants. They think it definitely comes from the central chamber door and out of the temple, indicating a creature’s escape.
  • Despite the slime’s presence, they find no immediate danger within the temple but realize the substance has corrosive properties. They decide to follow the trail, but before they do, they open one of the buldging doors. With the door opened, the ooze flooded into the room they were in. It continued to come out and they decided it was best to seal the temple and follow the trail.
  • They head east towards the North/South road. They reach a lake with an island in the center. The slime trail ends here and picks back up on the island.
  • On the island, they find a ruined structure with an entrance just below the surface. They head down to check it out. Inside, there’s a shallow pool filled with crab-like creatures. They are covered in the slime. Clover heals a slime-covered crab in a cave, attempting communication, revealing the creature is not the source but a victim of the slime.
  • The crabs, while defensive, do not attack, suggesting they perceive the party as non-threatening. The party decides to leave the crabs unharmed.
  • Discovering wing-like traces on the island, they deduce the slime creature possesses wings, complicating their pursuit as it heads southeast.
  • Deciding to send animal messengers to warn and seek help, the party heads southeast towards Blackroot.
