Necropolis Session 4



Zhaji's notes

The party defeated the evil family, capturing the daughter and slaying the rest. The boy disowned his family, and was rewarded with the family business (the honest part). The party found an idol of Sebk, the evil crocodile-headed god, in a secret room. The party took the idol as evidence.

The next day, Zhaji teleported to the temple of Thoth with Vandis and the daughter. The daughter and idol were turned over to the temple. The temple paid Vandis 9300 gp for the idol and other expenses. Zhaji and Vandis returned to the inn, via teleport, that afternoon.

The party spent the evening in the inn. Brianna, again, played [along] with the dancers.

Zhaji and Vandis returned to get the remaining items identified. Mambo upgraded her armor, and the rest of the items were put into the Portable Hole.
