Adventures in the Thunderpeaks

Continuing South of the Hedge Maze

You all thought the plant people in the hedge maze were a little creepy. You continued South after clearing the maze room and found yourselves looking into a room with a huge pit in the middle with sloped walls. On the other side of the room was a little hooved horned fey humanoid who played some pipes which initially caused a few issues. He ended up bull-rushing Bastion into the pit and it was then you discovered the shambling mounds at the bottom of the pit. Bastion copped quite a beating this encounter, going to below 0 hitpoints at one stage only to be completely healed by his old friend Kanatash shortly afterward.

The shambling mounds engulfed Hagar and Bastion and tried many times to engulf the poor old fey pipe-ist who couldn’t seem to climb out of the pit no matter how hard he tried. Eventually he did get out and did a runner. You haven’t seen him since.

The shambling mounds were finally reduced to a lot of small pieces of harmless shrubbery and another plant creature (Arborean) was destroyed as well.

After clearing the room, Kanatash performed some kind of ritual and eventually told you all to run, get the hell outta here.

You had a door to the West and a hallway to the East.

You down the hallway to the West which eventually opened up into a very large, long, room full of trees and monoliths and some more nasties to protect yourselves from.

- There was a cave bear that found Hagar to be a lot tougher than he originally thought, not managing to land one paw on the tough dwarf.

- There was a very large plant creature that just didn’t want to die but of course eventually did.

- The only other enemy in this room was another plant man (Arborean) who stayed out of hand to hand combat and caused trouble from afar. he used the monoliths for his first few attacks and then Bastion and Kanatash got jack of that and made a go at him one on one. Kanatash managed to put the plant man into light unconsciousness and then Bastion attempted the coup de gras. This did do a lot of damage to the poor plant man but wasn’t enough to kill him unfortunately and you spent a few more rounds suffering his plant spore breathing attacks until finally he died and you could focus on the other creatures.

There was no sign of the Fey piper from the previous room. Although you know that he did pass through here.

End of Session.

Entrance to the Pyramid of Shadows and Meeting Vyrellis

The party found themselves in a moving pit of dead bodies. They were then faced with an encounter consisting of two giant wormlike poisonous tenticled creatures, a giant with two heads who seemed very interested in adding their heads to his collection, and a few zombies.

They dealt with the enemies fairly quickly and managed to climb out of the pit. (except for Mr T who managed to lose his grip while climbing and land painfully on one of the giant’s sharp weapons..)

Upon searching the room that surrounded the pit, Bastion found a Black Obsidian Orb which has a severed head of an Eladrin princess floating inside it. This head spoke to Bastion and provided the party with some information about their current predicament. The Eladrin’s name is Vyrellis.

The party then headed south and was ambushed by some evil plant like creatures in an environment very different to the one they had jus been in. This room was suddenly like an outdoor setting with a dirt floor and a giant floor to ceiling hedge growing perfectly well. This encounter also contained a dire boar and a howling hag.

You had a hallway to the West and a hallway to the South. You chose to continue South and came to a set of double doors.

End of session.

Meeting Kanatash and the Quest to find his brother...

Upon arriving back to Wraften’s Inn in Winterhaven from their night mission into the ancient Tiefling burial tombs nearby, Hagar and Bastion, completely covered in guano, set about getting cleaned up and waking their companions.

Bastion noticed a couple of musicians in the corner of the room snoozing away with their instruments nearby. One of them looked quite familiar. An old friend (/aquantance?) of Bastion’s named Kanatash. They got talking and it was discovered that Kanatash was searching for his brother.

Hagar required a new axe and Mundungus required healing for his gangrenous eye (that Hagar had poked out). Kanatash helped them both out scoring a good deal from the weaponsmith and the appropriate salves from the apocathary.

The party then had a quick meeting with Lord Padraig informing him of the potential death of all the villagers they were asked to save from slavery.

Kanatash then inquired with local villagers about his brothers whereabouts and discovered that he was not far off the trail afterall. Infact seemingly very close to finding him afterall.

Kanatash insisted on the others buying mounts so that they could travel quicker. All party members bought a horse each but unfortunately there was no mount available that could safely carry Hagar. As a result they decided the best method therefore was for Hagar to by a horse and cart. Unfortunately Hagar thought that the (relatively good and fair) price that the merchant was asking for this horse and cart was a bit too steep and decided to argue with the merchant. Mundungus quickly got jack of this behavior and bought the cart himself only to take it into the village square and burn it to the ground just to teach Hagar a lesson. It is not known at this point in time whether Hagar learnt the lesson or not.. Time will tell.

As a result of these proceedings, they bought Hagar a table and turned it upside down so that he could use it as a makeshift sled. 6 hours of travel on this however cause Hagar more grief and he suffered a penalty to his fortitude for the rest of the day.

Along their travels, the party came upon a circle of floating giant and very ancient stones. They could only speculate at the origin of such a thing and continued on their way shortly after.

After around 6 hours of travelling they found a cave entrance and 5 thugs with a pet Rage Drake. They had a quick chat and discuvered that these men were travelling with Kanatash’s brother Gharesh and that Gharesh and a few other men had entered the cave around half an hour ago upon which time they prompty disappeared. The party entered the cave to see what they could find out.

Not long after searching inside the cave Mundungus found some mushrooms and then tripped over a small, smooth, black pyramid shaped stone. He picked it up and showed the others. After a couple of moments investigating it they then found themselves being subjected to some kind of magic. The pyramid grew massive at a rapid rate or they grew smaller at a rapid rate. A vision of a tiefling wizard appeared before them and told them that they were trapped now in the Pyramid of Shadows...

Memorable quotes

Hagar to Kanatash during introductions:

“I’ll most likely be um.. in the heat of battle.. enemies surrounding me.. and I take them down”

Bastion in response:

“Ok, this is what really happens, in the heat of battle he wets himself, throws his axe, takes his (points at Mundungus) eye out, and rolls natural ones’ like no one I’ve ever seen before in my life.”

Sister Linora to Kanatash regarding Mundungus’s missing eye:

“What happened?”


“Ah… I think he..poked himself in the eye with a hammer.”

Sister Linora:

“With a hammer?”



Sister Linora:

“What is he, a blacksmith or something?”


“No… Just a moron.”

Fallcrest Again
In Fallcrest
Leaving Winterhaven

On your return to Winterhaven after defeating Kalarel (dec), you met a sprightly Drow Rogue named Bastion who seemed to be very interested in tagging along with you on your next adventure. I’m not sure what magic was abound that day but Mr T didn’t seem in the least bit concerned and even encouraged that Bastion joined the party.

At this point the party consisted of:

You were approached by a Dwarf Druid named Baern who was on a quest to track down his cousin Thain Cardanas. Thain Cardanas had apparently killed the king of their clan and stolen the crown. Baern agreed to help you guys out in the Keep on the Shadowfell in return for helping him locate and capture (alive) his cousin. You agreed and Baern joined your party for a few fights and then travelled with you to Fallcrest.

On reaching Fallcrest you got wind that Thain Cardanas was headed towards Thunderspire Labyrinth so you followed that lead and ended up reaching Thunderspire Labyrinth two days later.
