Session 10: A Costly Success, and a Large Loot Haul

Where the PCs and the Cultists of Furter the Rememberator stage a well planned attack against the giant fleas of Bonechewer and buy a costly reward for the survivors


We had agreed that new characters would have half the XP that the dead character had.  As a result of this session (sorry Syam) we added the caveat that if your new character died in the first session, then you did not have to divide xp in half again.


As the session began, the PCs had just made a hasty retreat from the messy ossuary in the face of heavy corpse flea assault.  Brychan’s corpse was also evacuated and the two unconscious (Cybella and Pelegost) were moved to the lower living quarters of the Furter Cultists.

Vicar Malokai appeared and expressed his concern for the sacrificed remeberated dead, but also to inform the PCs that Patriarch Chax would see to their wounds in the laboratory.  Last session, both had made their saves vs death and subsequently had a stack of bones fall on them.  Both went to -7hp necessitating a permanent injury.  Both chose head injuries and surprisingly offered to take characteristic damage.

Passing through the jury rigged field-shrine, the PCs were led into the lab, the walls festooned with intricate brass and copper machinery featuring many cogs and tubes of bubbling fluid.  In the centre stood a copper operating table with restraints which was flanked by two tesla coils.  To the PCs relief these were not operational.

Cybella was first, one side of her face having been punctured with bone shards in multiple places.  Being a remeberator and not an MD Chax did what he could, sewing flesh back into place with a heavy needle and cord normally used for the assembly of remeberated dead.  Needless to say, the result wasn’t pretty and Cybella’s CHA has now been reduced from 10 to 9.

Cybella, the Wizard.
(Cybella wears a 1980's bright purple leather powersuit festooned with zippers, over a silk blouse.  We generated this on the ASE1 Fashion Table, it was only later that we realized we rolled on the guys chart.  I like the image, perhaps the tag on the jacket might be a torn stubthat says 'Princ...'.)

Next up was Pelegost, who’s player had described an injury to the eye socket resulting in a permanently bloodshot eye.  The DM suggested a shattered eye socket which would need a plate and the player agreed.  Chax poked around the eye and declared that a plate would be needed to hold all the pieces together.  A copper plate with a slit to see through was riveted in place, and Mike chose for Pelegost to suffer a -1 to INT.

Pelegost, default leader of the party, and Acolyte of Calina, Orbital God of the Twelve Annihilations. DMs imagining.
(Calina's symbol is a clockface (at five minutes to midnight?).  I have totally been trying to get him to wear a flavour flave clock, but for now he wears a circlet with a symbol on the forhead, banded mail, and is heavily armed.)

The patients were then shown into the shrine and the curtain pulled revealing a Golden statuette of Furter.  Chax cast cure light wounds and the PCs started to heal normally Again following medical attention.  The PCs were shown back to the sleeping quarters where they were preparing to spend the night when two cultists ushered in a stranger and asked the PCs if they would mind entertaining the newcomer.

Dressed like Buddy Holly and carrying a six string and a katana (bastard sword), the newcomer was looking for the grave of ‘the king’ as it was rumoured to be inscribed with words of great wisdom and truth.  Upon hearing of the situation in the graveyard he agreed it was the right thing to do to help the PCs with their mission.  He entertained the group with a couple of songs, and they retired for the night.

The next morning Malokai visted them, stating that now was the time to finish the fleas before they could build up their numbers again, and that the PCs should come up with another plan.  Despite the previous day’s losses, eight remberated dead, five skeletons, six cultists, and Malokai himself were available and that the PCs should include them in the plan.

The plan was thought through thoroughly but ultimately quite simple.  A foraging party would collect as much firewood as it could get for half a day.  This would be drooped down the shaft into the messy ossuary.  Kindling and pitch would also be added, followed by greenery once the fire caught.  The doors in the undercrypt would be spiked open just enough to provide airflow in, but prevent the fleas getting out.  These doors would be monitored by cultists not directly involved in the attack.  The party, and Malokai’s detachment would take positions surrounding the sinkhole, and destroy the fleas as they emerged fleeing the smoke.

The PCs and remeberated patrol collected firewood, but encountered six fleas whilst returning to the Mausoleum.  Surprise was on their side, and crossbow bolts and the war dogs made short work of the fleas.

Ensuring that Malokai and troops were in place, they lit the fire and took up their positions.  The followers of Furter had two thirds of the circumference and the PCs one third.  The PCs spread out in a single line leaving as little gap as possible reasoning that they wanted to contain the fleas to avoid getting flanked, a tactic which was to ultimately cost them dearly as it did not provide any defence in depth or protect the magic user.

The fleas arrived sporadically at first.  Then after a few rounds several were appearing each round.  The fleas were not interested in the dead, and therefore most went for the party which was not screened by the reanimated dead the Furter cultists were using.  The players were counting on using sleep to great advantage,and would have been correct to do so if Cybella had a chance to cast.  Around the third round eight fleas appeared, but wanting to target more Cybella waited.  For the next two rounds in a row her attempt at casting was thwarted as the fleas continued to win initiative and were able to successfully attack before she could cast.  Before long Cybella, Pelegost, and the newcomer were figting a number of fleas, with Maredud helping the newcomer, and Pelegost assisted by the dogs, and faithful Jon-O-Tan backing up Cybella.

Both Cybella and Pelegost took heavy hits, and the extra Furter cultist rushed in to provide cure light wounds on the beleaguered PCs.  Overly zealous, a cultist rolled a one, and tripped over a shovel which had been left during the original excavations around the pit.  Rolling a one again the next round, he tripped again an thus provided little support to Cybella, who had up to four fleas on her.

The stranger proved to be pretty good with his sword and was making short work of the fleas until one flea too many rolled a 20 and it was max damage and saving throw vs death which he sadly failed.  A flea leapt on his shoulder and skewered him through the eye with it’s proboscis ending that adventurer in his first session.

And this loss of a cool character in the first session is why we don't get too attached to our characters, DMs roll '20' too.  The player took it well in his stride and promptly made up a fighter with plate mail , shield and sword.  Thats' two in a row for Syam.  The highest 'killer DM' run in one of my games was many years ago where the same player lost a character three sessions in a row; can I beat that record?
Being right there, Maredud made his first kill, cleaving a flea in twain before the fleas that had been attacking the newcomer turned on him.  Somewhat isolated from the others, Maredud was struck a number of times in quick succession, and he also failed a save vs death sending him to the next world.

On the other side of the pit, the remebrated dead were doing well at protecting Malokai’s command team, but were paying for it in numbers.  Malokai was felling fleas with his mace, and spiritual hammer, seemingly destroying fleas with a gesture of his hand.

Eventually the plan prevailed and the numbers tapered off, with two characters having paid the ultimate price.

The two characterless players took over a cultist each, and the group went down into the hole to check for activity.  There was none, but they did notice that one of the walls seemed strangely flat.  Pelegost prodded and tapped it with a mace.  It gave and they smashed their way into an eggshell blue ceramic room with four aluminium caskets. 

Cybella, weary of traps ordered Jon-O-Tan to go in first.  Jon-O wasn’t very keen, so a morale roll was made, and he eventually accepted the instruction and went in.

Having assured themselves that there were no traps, they examined the first casket.  Believing ti to be free from traps they opened it, finding a mummified corpse, wearing the rotted remains of a military uniform and a holster containing what Cybella recognised as an ancient energy pistol.  Determining that this was treasure, no more precautions were taken and the other caskets were thrown open to reveal an argonium sabre in one, a copper suit of light armour with a fishbowl helmet in another, and a high ranked corpse in the last, festooned with bejewelled precious metal  insignia, medals and regalia.  This turned out to be a big hual for the two surviving PCs.

One of the cultist (Syams) looked the other way when offered a piece of the loot, but the other (Telfer) thought this was an insult to the dead and informed Vicar Malokai.  Malokai arrived, and referring to a scoll he carried stated that this was not a part of the records and therefore “not planned for rememberation” allowing the PCs to keep their loot in the spirit of the ‘you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours’ arrangement he had made with the PCs.
Being late we ended there agreeing that the combat had dragged too long, and that it would be desirable to reduce the playing time of large combats.

 LOSSES: Maredud the Theif, and the new character, the Guitar Grifter.

GAINS:  Goal achieved, one rival faction destroyed.  Loot, Argonium Sabre (Longsword +1), Red copper armour suit with fishbowl helmet, lots of jewel encrusted precious metal military insignia, medals and regalia.

SESSION 9: An Infestation, a Deal, and a Lesson

Where the PCs find out that following the plans of others can hurt.  Adventure here.

Nick:  Cybella - Magic User 1; Jon-O-Tan - Troubleshooter2  (yup, a level 2 henchman!)
Syam:  Brychan - Fighter 1.
Telfer:  Maredud - Thief 1.
Michael: Pelegost - Cleric 1  (Calina of the Twelve Annihilations)
Theresa:  Fokus – Cleric 1 (Frig - Gluttony and Rutting)

Having met Patriarch Chax the PCs were shown to the ground level mausoleum converted to a bunk room and told to make themselves comfortable.  It became clear that the followers of the Orbital God, Furter were engaged in a takeover of the grounds using electro-mechanically reanimated skeltons and zombies and had at least a dozen acolytes as well.

They were fed and retired for the night.

In the morning Vicar Malokai came to visit them.  Showing that he was perhaps more practical the Chax he agreed that in return for the PCs offer of assistance, he would be prepared to turn a blind eye to why the PCs had come here, and even go so far as to consider retrieving the artefacts they had come for as ‘proper rememberation of the dead’ by fulfilling the wishes of the deceased (Dawn’s grandmother). 

He explained the situation in the grounds, how the pit the characters had seen the night before had struck the nest of a pack of dog sized fleas which are in the service of Jackal Mask the Bone Chewer, and that the Ghouls were the servants of Bezonaught; both examples he said of the degenerate way the grounds had been kept until the followers of Furter arrived.
 He then set out a plan to deal with the fleas, which involved the remembrated dead surrounding the sink hole and the party entering from below and assaulting the tunnels to drive the fleas into the killing zone.
Much to the DMs surprise the party agreed to this without modification.  With the dead in place, the party prepared to enter the westernmost ‘messy’ ossuary.  From the sketch map they were given they were reluctant to enter via the undercrypt beneath Torpo’s tomb, and settled on a plan of entry from the top.

(...And so began the scene in the game which has annoyed me the most so far.)

“An opening lies before you which reaches down into the darkened ossuary below.  The air smells dry and stale.  An old and rickety-looking ladder is propped against one wall of the opening and reaches to the bottom”.

The PCs were initially going to lower Maredud the thief down on a rope, but the DMs scary descriptions got too much for Maredud’s and they hesitated and attempted to devise a better plan.  Getting impatient, and perhaps too slow to realise the danger (5 INT) Brychan took the initiative and started down the ladder, and continued to do so despite the DM generously asking  “so you’re going down the old rickety looking ladder and you’re wearing platemail right?”.

This rather unsubtle hint was ignored however, and one third of the way down a sickening crack echoed around the chamber below and the ladder gave way.  The boy-fighter grabbed for the receding rung above as he fell, but failed his save verse breath weapon (reflex save) and fell twenty feet to the floor taking 2d6 damage which while only causing six points of damage was enough to take the already wounded fighter to negative one and a save verses death which he also failed. 

Alas, why did he have to die so young.  RIP Brychan

The death march was hummed and another player character was consigned to the ‘also ran’ list.

(DM’s note -  I’m not sure why but this really annoyed me, Brychan was a cool character and it was such a waste.  This was perhaps indicative of the general mood at the table that night; probably the least successful session we have had for a couple of reasons).

The characters changed tack, and decided to enter through the undercrypt via the 'tidy' ossuary to the east.

Taking their remberated dead with them for support, the PCs entered the messy ossuary, and immediately became aware of a chittering noise in the direction of Brychan’s body.    Eight fleas attacked, going for the living in preference over the dead and a couple of rounds later seven more arrived.  Out in front, Pelegost and Cybella took the brunt of the assault, and both were soon bitten multiple times and reduced to negative hit points.  Fortunately, both made their saving throws verses death and collapsed alive but seriously wounded.

The next action one of the PC's zombies rolled a '1', and tripped into a stack of bones (a keyed location hazard).  Rolling a 1 on a D6 (my usual 'does something really bad happen' check) the stacks collapse on top of Cybella and Pelgost doing extra damage and taking them both to -7 which is below the -6 threshold for permanent effects.

Maredud ordered the dead into position to cover a retreat (DM note – they should have used them as shields from the start) and dragged the unconscious companions an the corpse of Brychan from the chamber, narrowly avoiding being overrun at the door.  For some reason, rather than continuing to retreat, they made a stand at the door and paid a high price in rememberated dead for doing so, with all but one of their reanimated helpers falling to the fleas before the decision was made to close the door on the last one.

It was late, so we left things there.

LOSSES:  Brychan, the dumb but likeable, alas he was too young!
Be sure to join us here next week, when this list gets longer, oh yeah, the dice go all session4 on their asses!

GAINS:  Allies and information.  Malokai has agreed to help the PCs identify which sarcophagus has Dawn’s grandmother once the situation in the grounds is resolved.

Lazerhawk - Skull and Shark

This has been getting played at our game sessions and in my car.  Creepy electro goodness.  This album makes me think of movies like Predator, Terminator, Commando, Big Trouble in Little China and Escape from New York.

While you're listening, close your eyes and say to yourself "I eat Green Berets for Breakfast!".

Denizens of Lugosi: One Tooth Mary

Where we get to meet the character's early patron, One Tooth Mary, and understand her role in Lugosi.

PISTOLE VERNON:  "Sure Mrs, I can 'elp you out.  That woman in the booth over there, go and say hello.  Her name is Mary, but some call her One Tooth Mary, just don't ask her how she got one tooth".

Later in game, in a night of passion with Cybella, Vernon revealed a little of Mary's background. She was once a widely feared assassin in Denethix, one of the deadliest blades for hire in the land.

He told how there are rumors that she once went by the alias of Black Jenny* and was cursed by a Vampire.  Hints were made that the curse resulted in her growing fangs, and aging (loosing two levels at least!), yet in her older age she would now age slower.

One Tooth Mary.  An imaculately executed self portrait of unknown age.  I got this image from a favourite blog of mine, Tales of the Grotesque and Dungeonesque

Further insight into her background and name are gleaned from hints and rumors which involve a pair of pliers and an intoxicant fueled rage of self loathing.

To date Mary has appeared helpful to the PCs, paying good gold for treasure, and being a good source of leads.

One source of intrigue however is that when asked whether she new any wizards, she said she didn't,but was obviously uncomfortable and the players came to the conclusion that she was not only lying, but that she seemed momentarily afraid of whatever thought the question had prompted.  I rolled the 'doesn't know appears afraid' reaction on a table in the Vornheim supplement and so came up with a reason to explain.

What the players don't know is:  Highlight to read unless you're one of my players, in which case just don't, it's more fun if you don't know.

Highlight from here:

Mary does know a wizard.  A wizard who was once a fellow adventurer who fell in with the Cult of Starry  Wisdom.  Mary is scared of this guy, and it is this mad wizard to whom she has reluctantly passed the Armillary retrieved by the PCs from the Prison of the Hated Pretender*. What this also means is that the Cult of Starry Wisdom now have an astronomical divination device, mwah ha ha ha....
End Highlight.

We get to see some of the action side of Mary at the upcoming Festival of Fangs game sessions (when the PCs return to Lugosi from the Obelisk to pick up supplies, and use the festival to recruit henchmen - coming soonish!).  Mary, plus two fellow assassin types return late to Bellas, there are panting and Mary is bleeding.  Write ups for that are a few sessions away.

Shady assistant number one.  A youthful femme fatale, she exudes menace and sex.  Her Jacket is made of tough high quality leather and the beaded front piece adds to the protection (leather). She carries a rapier at her side and has a number of throwing knives among her adornments.

Shady assistant number two.  This tall silent type is wearing a cloak which partially conceals the long slim bladed two handed sword slung over his back, but doesn't conceal the dead look in his eyes.  A pistol crossbow hangs at his side.

Curiously, and reinforcing the Twin Peaks Black Lodge vibe at Bellas, Mary's constant assistants (introduced at the first meeting and encountered a few times since) are a trio of near-identicalb small bald men in suits of slightly different cuts in matching brown corduroy.

SESSION 8 – The Obelisk of Forgotten Memories aka A Tactical Lesson

Where we continue Gus' ASE module The Obelisk of Forgotten Memories.  Make sure you download it.


Nick:  Cybella - Magic User 1;  Jon-O-Tan - Troubleshooter2  (yup, a level 2 henchman!)
Syam:  Brychan - Fighter 1.
Telfer:  Maredud - Thief 1.
Michael: Pelegost - Cleric 1  (Calina of the Twelve Annihilations)
Theresa:  Fokus – Cleric 1 (Frig - Gluttony and Rutting)


We agreed to use the Dungeon of Signs counterspell rules.  Roll D20 plus level and INT bonus against AC10 less caster’s level and INT bonus.


We left last session on a cliff-hanger.  The PCs had arrived at the Obelisk, and investigating sounds from the woods of someone apparently muttering to themself Maredud came face to face with a rather scary undead ‘ghoul’.

The horror before him, clad in green cloak and copper scale armour, has blackened fingers gnawed or rotted to the bone, and blackened flesh around it’s mouth which has partially receded, and partially been bitten away.  It hisses “what do we have here then”.  END SESSION.

SESSION 8  Tactical Lessons

Maredud shouts a warning and positions himself between the creature and Jon-O-Tan, receiving the attack as Jon-O-Tan moves to assist.  A frenzied assault and two failed saves verse paralysation see them both go down, a creeping stiffness spreading through their bodies.  The creature attempts to carry Jon-O off, but is thwarted by the others arriving. 

It tries to get away, but the PCs give chase, Pelgost unleashes his recently acquired the war dogs.  The dogs catch the creature which turns to defend itself and drops both dogs with it’s paralyzing claws.  Brychan catches up and attacks, and receives a vicious swipe across the jaw in reply but he makes his save.

Pelegost invokes Calina to drive off the foul thing but the creature feels it’s master is the stronger; it turns to run regardless as it doesn't know how many more there are.  Reassessing the four paralyzed figures before him Brychan wisely lets it go.  The party arrives and Pelegost uses cure light wounds on Jon-O-Tan, annihilating the fugue, and Fokus casts the same on Maredud, a lusty vigour overcoming the paralysis.

The PCs retreat to the three statues just outside the obelisk grounds and set camp.  Firewood is gathered from the treeline but they aren't keen to venture further into the woods.  The PCs all consume a PPP (protein power pill) to each regain 1hp.  Sadly the random encounter rolls do not go the DM’s way and the night passes uneventfully except for some noises of movement and muffled shouting coming from within the grounds during the morning watch.

In the morning the PCs decide that instead of investigating the rest of the grounds that they will head in the direction in which the ghoul fled the night before, and soon come across a strange cottage in the woods.  It is made of a ceramic type material with a thatched roof, slit windows and two doors. 

The PCs approach unseen in a skirmish line (they’re learning) with Maredud leading the way, and sneaking up to the cottage he peeks through the slit windows.  In a workshop is one ghoul, ranting and tearing up books while attended by two others, and in a living room, two more ghouls crouch among broken furniture.  He also spies a trap in the living room with a swinging log set to smash anyone coming through the door.  He identifies one of the ghouls in the living room as the one from the previous day’s encounter.

The party discusses what to do, and the DM gives the ghouls a one in six chance to notice as the PCs haven’t moved away before having their chat.  Options discussed include setting fire to the roof.  The ghouls roll a one, and when they are noticed one ghoul goes to warn the others, and one tries to get out the door which Brychan quickly holds closed.  Fokus also holds the door, and thinking fast Maredud runs around to the other door and starts spiking it shut (nice encounter changing move).

Pelegost starts spiking the door that the PCs are leaning on shut.  The ghouls come out of the other room.  Two try to force the door open, two leave the room headed around back, and the leader runs up to the window and assessing the situation casts sleep, rolling enough HD to take out the whole party.  Cybella recognises the spell and not having acted attempts to counterspell rolling a 19 to successfully counter the sleep spell.  The Lead ghoul then unleashes a magic missile at Cybella and a very tense moment is had until the DM rolls a 1 resulting in (a disappointing) 2 points of damage.

Realising they might be up s#$t creek facing five angry ghouls, Pelegost wisely jacks up the syringe with the skull emblem (a potion of undead control rolled as random treasure in a previous adventure!) and sets about negotiating with the now willing to chat (less murderous) three ghouls in the living room, the leader of whom claims to speak for Bezonaught, one of the Orbital Gods performing service at the Obelisk.  A deal is struck in which if the PCs deal with the Cult of Furter and bring the ghouls their corpses, then the ghouls will not eat the PCs.  The leader calls the other (unaffected by the undead control) two through and explains this to them, but they do not look happy and keep licking their lips regardless of the deal.

The PCs leave, passing by a a large reflecting pool.  The PCs examine it at length, sorrounded by mist,noting that it is four feet deep and the walls are inscribed with names,  'LT. Ripley' in particular giving the players a giggle.

Moving further up the main path they head towards an large object they can make out through the mist, which is the shrine.  Inscriptions an reliefs around the door show the exploits of a fierce fanged warrior.

Upon entering they encounter Vicar Malokai, accompanied by two cultists, and two 'animated dead'.  He is talking to Furter in the God’s Eye.  Malokai is very much in line with proper fashion for gentlemen sporting a frock coat over scale mail and a top hat perched upon his big hair.  Malokai is initially suspicious that the PCs are grave robbers, and rants about the degeneracy of Bezonaught and Bonechewer’s followers and how that is no way to honour the dead with such foul creatures. Malokai agrees that he will speak to his boss about accepting the assistance the PCs offer.  The PCs like the idea and feel much better about allying with these guys than with the ghouls.

Vicar Malokai, just add top hat and scale mail under a frock coat.  I scanned this from a play program, the whole time I was watching the play I was thinking "that guy is so Malokai".  A surprisingly competent cleric and astute 'relationship manager'.

Malokai instructs the PCs to stay put and heads to the Mausoleum to talk to his boss, at which time Pelegost attempts to activate the God’s Eye, and succeeds in achieving contact, but with Furter.  Seizing the opportunity Furter instructs Pelegost that he is to go to the Mausoleum and offer his assistance to Patriarch Chax.  The PCs go to the Mausoleum and are met with eight zombies and eight skeletons guarding the entrance.  An acolyte lets them into the main entrance and they wait.  Patriarch Chax* arrives a short time later along with Vicar Malokai and others.  “Welcome to the team”  says Chax distractedly, along with “Tally ho” and “Have at ‘em”.  A deal is struck whereby a small contingent of undead will be made available to the PCs and the groups will work together to destroy the fleas and destroy or drive out the ghouls.

*Chax reminds us of the buffoonish Prince in Blackadder 3, except I am playing him as more distracted rather than stupid: he has a sharp mind when it is focused on something.  It would appear that the characters will mostly deal with Malokai, who despite the foppish Denethix fashion comes across as competent and passionate as befits his rank.

LOSSES:  None, but oh so very nearly the whole party, twice!

GAINS:  Treasure –none.  XP – Dunno yet, Allies - Both factions met so far (you know this is going to end badly).

Here we list those brave adventurers who have been tested and found wanting (more hit points).
