Nevermind. I found this answered in a very old post.

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

Another week, another fantastic adventure (or in the case of last night, endless hours of fighting with computer programs and long sessions of splitting loot). The new bard/cleric was unable to connect to Klooge last night. The issue was seemingly on Jesse's end, though we had some oddness popping u...

Question on Aquil'iya

I'm a bit confused on this ring. In the text, it says the ring is neutral and happy to serve an evil master as a good. But further on it says that any user not LG gains 2 negative levels. Is this correct? It seems like a typo to me ( or really weird).

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

The group arrived on a hill in the midst of an ancient old-growth forest. Looking around, the party could see miles in all directions. To the NE, they could just make out a river cutting across the land. The entire area near the river and past it to the East had been recently burned. To the NW, the ...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

Crawling out of the Black Pyramid, the party headed back to their secret headquarters, the Fane of Justicia. Along the way, they spotted a lone figure dressed in a blue and white elvish cloak staggering along the bank of the underground river. Creeping up cautiously, they discovered a half-orc (half...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

It's been far too long since we've had an update, so let's get going. After suffering a horrible defeat by the Clay Golem, the surviving party members discussed what to do. They settled on bringing bodies with them and marching up to the Library on level 6 to see if they could trade for help from th...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

Back to the exciting adventure! This week the party headed back to level 9 to explore the mystery of the black pyramid. The group chose to try the West staircase up the pyramid and climbed to the top where they found a locked door. On either side of the door stood stone figures that seemed to be hol...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

After recovering from the battle against the aboleth, the party continued their exploration of the underground river. They were freed from having to use the skiffs through liberal application of the Water Walking spell. So down the river they marched. They came to another side passage that lead to a...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

Ding dong the fish is dead. It was another grueling battle and could have easily gone the other way. Taz finally shook off the effects of the Hold spell and the party began to retreat from the aboleth, heading back up the slimy tunnel. Before everyone could run, Acanthus hit the group with a Burning...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

The party carefully made their way down the slick, slimy tunnel. The tunnel eventually opened into a cavern containing a murky underground pool. The ledge they stood on was alive with leeches, and each step they took crushed dozens of the tiny bloodsuckers. By torchlight, they could see the chamber ...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

Question for readers: Have any of you played the adventure this far? Have any of you run it this far? How did your group fare against the Aboleth? Did you group find The Far Garden? I've been dropping MAJOR hints to the Centaur Druid about something calling to him from the Minyad's garden area, but ...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

With their new clubhouse mostly explored (nothing interesting behind that mysterious locked door, I'm sure), it was time to head back out to the raging river for the most exciting canoe trip since Deliverance. No Taz or Celeb this week, so they were left behind to tidy up the place. The players were...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

The good news is the epic battle was finally over. The bad news is the player's got their butts handed to them. Picking up from last session, Kristle had run for it, heading back up the stairs to Level 6 to avoid a TPK. Taz the centaur had the polymorphed warrior/woodchuck Celeb on his back, along w...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

The crazy battle continued for a second week. There's almost no point in my trying to describe the blow by blow of this titanic battle between good and evil. (I leave it to you to decide which side is good and which evil. I think the party is a bit used to thinking "might makes right" and this time ...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

But first the party had a short mee...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

The party spent quite a bit of time avoiding the statue and very carefully inspecting the body on the platform. They were able to determine the body was that of a long-dead worshiper of Justicia. When they were satisfied there were no traps on the body, they respectfully packed up the remains for bu...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

This last week the party continued to explore the flooded passage after a night spent among their tribe of willing minions. After killing Sosank and gaining the loyalty of the Mountain Troglodytes, the meager resources of the clan were at the party's disposal. They were treated to an evening of trog...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

Issues at work prevented me from writing up the last two sessions. I'll try to get caught up this week. We pick up already in the action. Kethren was alone in the large cavern with Sosank and Gunrolz. The gigantic demonic troglodyte tore into the lone lycanthrope, rending him with the monster's grea...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

After ditching a few of the PCs at the library so I wouldn't have to deal with them as NPCs, the party headed out again. They ran into more ants along with several bat swarms, which were easily handled with a well-placed Fireball. I bet I'm going to end up hating that spell before too long. Two enco...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

We begin this week as we ended last week, with both clerics dead and standing in front of a mysterious stone door without any visible way to open it. The door was 10' wide and 12 ' high with a smooth surface, save for a detailed mouth (now closed) in the middle of the portal. A rune-studded stone fr...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

Heading down into the Trog caverns was next on the agenda. Pun-Ra was sure he could retrace his steps to get the party to their foul warrens. So down they went. The group thought they heard the sounds troglodytes around the bend ahead, laughing and talking in their odd sibilant language. Kristle mov...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

It was another rousing session this week. We picked up after the group had rested for the night to replenish spells. Quav'Ria the party's original cleric was definitely dead, killed by the Xorn. The group decided to "repurpose" a few of her item until she could be raised. So Pun-Ra found himself wea...
