Session 7 Recap June 25

Luna wakes up in the north hallway and notices her wet clothing.  A bad smell is coming from the north door, there are sounds coming from the west door.  Luna chooses the west door. She opens the door but it is very dark in the room.  There is enough ambient light to see an outline she recognizes as Assassin.  She also sees a giant pulsing mass and two toad wraiths.  The Toad Behemoth greets Luna and introduces himself as Broam Lord-Under-the-Mire.  Vanilla introduces himself to Broam as “Romulus.”  Broam asks Luna a riddle: “What is so fragile that saying its name breaks it?”  Luna answered correctly; silence.  This impresses Broam.  Broam has no more information to share and dismisses the party.  The pair of adventures go through the south door into the small hallway where Romulus is.  He’s in the pit trap at the end of the hallway and is unable to reach the lantern to give it to Luna.  Romulus is holding the trap open.  Luna takes off her cloak and leaves it in the hallway and Assassin wrings it out and takes it.  She gets into the pit with Romulus.  He hands her the lantern and helps her push the door open. She goes through the southern door. In the room, Luna sees a mound of what might be sticks on the floor in the southwest corner.  She moves over to the mound and Assassin comes into the room now.  Now they both move towards the mound.  Now they see they’re bones of all shapes and sizes fashioned into a nest.  Luna runs the other way.  Assassin wants to kick the mound and dig through the bones.  But within 10 feet of the nest a blue gator comes out of the nest.  It’s aggressive.  The gator is coming towards them.  Assassin deftly avoids the first attack and then a second! Assassin tries to jump on the gator’s back but fails.  Luna runs towards the door and almost slips into the trap but manages to stop herself in time.  She’s at the doorway.  The gator attacks Assassin again with a snap but misses; he only managed to tear his clothing.  Assassin tries to Kancho the gator but misses. The gator snaps again and misses again!  Assassin tries to elbow drop the gator and misses; he falls onto the ground.  The session ended!
