Having found all of the ingredients to relight Minderhals forge you began making your way to the cathedral. On the way you were attacked by several barbarian ogres led by a disgusting diseased mongrel slag giant of ash giant ancestry named Nakurrh. You beat off the ogres so quickly Nakurrh ran away. This session began with the group deciding to hunt her down and remind her why no one messes with the Blazemore bunch.
It didn’t take long to find Nakurrh, who had found a few manticore hunters one hill giant(one shot kill by Pigpen) and a cyclops(with a tied up manticore) to join with her. It wasn’t a long or difficult battle but in the end the blight that was Nakurrh was ended. She would truly not be missed by anyone that knew her. You wisely decided to kill the manticore it would have just attacked if you hadn’t.
Next up you had to get through the gate into the valley of Minderhals cathedral. The gate was guarded by a pair of smilodons a hill giant and an ettin. They fell like all that had come before them and you were able to see the cathedral you had been searching for. The head of recruiting was within. But there were hundreds of giants in between here and there. With some scouting Pigpen was able to find the toilet drain to sneak into and avoid fighting an impossible number of giants. So you may be a bit stinky but that is certain to go unnoticed in this camp. You made your fortitude save so you can manage.
When you reached the top you found a tent with the cathedrals chef Rotter Bloodfreckle with over 100 hit points, also one shot killed by Pigpen. That was amazing and caught me off guard for sure. Well done. The noise brought the Occulus a ogre mage (in disguise as a super ugly marsh giant witch) she blasted off a few lightning bolts before being vanquished. You found some stuff in the two tents and this is where we finished.
You can figure how you want to enter the cathedral. There are 4 stone giants at the top of the staircase but with care they shouldn’t notice you. As long as things don’t get noisy. There is a door into the cathedral right by Rotters tent. This doesn’t appear to be the main entrance. There are two smaller entrances on either side of the building with the main entrance in the center. You would have seen this as you approached the sewers. I believe that is all. See you on the 16th.
