Necropolis Session 10



Zhaji's notes

Brianna started singing an inspiring battle song and drew her bow.
Kress activated True Seeing from his helm and closed on the sphinx. The sphinx struck out at Kress, but missed.
Zhaji cast Greater Invisibility on herself, and then successfully cast Slow on the sphinx.
Mambo magically drew her great-axe and struck at the sphinx (oox), missing due to the sphinx's Displacement.
Angel cast Haste on Mambo.
Vandis stepped up to the spinx, drawing his holy longsword, and swung through the false image.
The Sphinx spit acid at Mambo, doing minor damage.

Brianna continued to sing while shooting arrows at the sphinx (xxx).
Kress struck the sphinx with his great-axe (xx), killing it.
Mambo moved to the Okapi-headed door, and struck it. The sphinx did not appear.
Vandis moved near Mambo and attempted to open the door, causing the sphinx to appear.

Brianna shot arrows at the new sphinx (xxxx).
Kress attempted to open another door, but it didn't budge.
Zhaji moved to a better position and watched.
Mambo attacked the okapi-spinx (xx), killing it.
Vandis moved to the warthog-sphinx door and opened it, summoning another sphinx.
The sphinx cast Displacement.

Brianna moved to get a line of sight and shot it with an arrow (x).
Kress closed on the sphinx and struck it (x).
Mambo moved to wait by the last door.
Vandis struck the sphinx (oxx), disabling it.
The sphinx struck a final blow on Vandis (x) and dropped.

People delayed by the last door waiting for the door to be opened.
Zhaji pulled out a wineskin and had a drink.

Brianna readied a sneak attack.
Kress grudgingly opened the door.
Vandis readied an attack.
The donkey-sphinx appeared.
Brianna and Vandis each struck the sphinx (x)(x).

Kress swung at the sphinx with extra powerful blows (xx), killing it.

The party lined up to go into the shrine. Mambo opened the door. A 12' tall 4-headed (camel, okapi, warthog, and donkey) statue stood within the shrine. The statue spoke in four booming voices, "Stop! Lay down your arms, bend your knee, and pay homage to the new ruler of the Khemitian pantheon. Such servants as you are welcomed and greatly honored in my kingdom here, in the Nether, and on distant stars and planes too!" The suggestion affected none.

Brianna asked to borrow Mambo's great-hammer. Mambo handed the hammer over. Brianna swung the hammer at the statue and it shattered. A book and a ruby statue of Set sat in the rubble. Brianna smashed the statue of Set as well. The book was the Book of Eternity.

The scenes on the columns changed to scenes of good and niceness. Everyone in the party had a scene showing them performing a heroic act. All were pleased.

The party followed a green light toward the east, crossing over the water which hardened to support non-flying peoples' weight. Zhaji, feeling the warmth of her Statue of Isis, knew the party needed to go through the center gate. The gate, however, was covered with pictures of the animal-headed gods doing horrible deeds. Brianna suggested that nobody touch the gate because she thought bad things might happen if it weren't opened the right way. Brianna cast Legend Lore and "donkey" and "widdershins" came to her. Brianna knew to touch the donkey first, and then the other animals in counter-clockwise order. The gate opened to reveal stairs leading down.

The party entered the underground passage. Zhaji cast Darkvision; the others could already see in the dark by various means. The passage was long and led to an underground lake. Set into the wall was a miniature scene of the Temple of Osirus. There was also a green glow in the lake.

Brianna said she could investigate the glow because she had an armor crystal that let her breath water. Zhaji said she could join her by turning into a black dragon. The two prepared and headed into the water. The glow was an illusion of a statue of Osirus, as Brianna discovered by trying to touch it. The two returned to the party.

Mambo suggested looking in the model for the real statue. The model showed a miniature of the broken statue of Set (broken by the party) in the shrine in the Osirium. Brianna cast Legend Lore to determine how to return the statue of Osirus to the shrine. The Legend Lore revealed that the statue could be returned by creating a miniature statue and adding it to the model. The party planned to send Zhaji to town to buy small figurines of Osirus.

Zhaji cast Greater Teleport to return to the statue store. She purchased three fancy 1" statuettes of Osirus from the merchant's large selection. After lying about what the others were doing, she left the store and teleported back to the group.

Vandis, with a song from Brianna, placed the jade statue into the model. The party could hear the large statue being pulled out of the lake a good distance away.

The party climbed the steps and suddenly appeared next to a fountain in a garden in the temple of Osirus above.

Mambo: Vandis - I agree. NOW.
Mambo: mambo - we hit them bad guys now?
Mambo: Vandis - Now, but not before, Mambo.
Mambo: Brianna "We have work to do here."
Mambo: Vandis - It was important for us to play along witih these guys to get to this point?
Mambo: Mambo - why?
Mambo: Kress - Because we needed them to get us into the boat to get here.
Mambo: Brianna - we have this little model (set in nook in wall by Brie and Kress). We have this green glow from beneath surface of lake.

Mambo: Zhaji offers to turn into something that can also breath water.
Mambo: Brie says Black dragons can breath water.

Mambo: Brianna assumes they can talk underwater, so they do, because they believe they can.
Mambo: Zhaji - the illusion of a statue that is not here that we must return to the temple?
Mambo: Brie - let's go up and talk to our friends.
Mambo: Zhaji - it seems strange to just have an illusion of a statue here.
Mambo: They emerge from the lake.
Mambo: Brie - it is an illusion of statue of Osiris that should be in shrine.
Mambo: mambo - maybe if we check model, we find statue.
Mambo: Brie does another Legend Lore.
Mambo: mambo sees that room 7K has statue of Set in it right now.
Mambo: (Marauders Map)
Mambo: mambo - maybe statue in 7k of Set is built around Osiris?
Mambo: Brie - but we felt there was more to do and I think there is more to do down here.
Mambo: Kress - the lazy bad guys probably threw the statue of Osiris into the water!
Mambo: Zhaji - do you think an Earth Elemental could carry it out of the water.
Mambo: Mambo - then Earth Elemental become Mud Elemental.
Mambo: mambo - maybe they sink statue where boat sink?
Mambo: mambo - we are under other water where boat sink.
Mambo: Vandis - then why is the green light here?
Mambo: mambo - maybe it project from ceiling?
Mambo: Zhaji - like a mirror?
Mambo: Vandis - lets let Brianna do another Legend Lore!
Mambo: Zhaji - But Brie uses up resources.
Mambo: Brie - only 250gp worth each time.
Mambo: Only a Legend Lore spell could explain it.
Brianna: waxor clay
Mambo: Need to make a model of Osiris from wax or clay and add it to the model temple.
Mambo: Need to fashion pool from water of cistern.
Mambo: 4 inches of water over and lift it out and place it in its place in the shrine in the model.
Mambo: We need to restore Osiris to the Orsirium.
Mambo: The model of each (below) sets right up above.
Mambo: Then we kick ass on the bad people above.
Mambo: If a Priest does process, that's best.
Mambo: Vandis must be the artist.
Mambo: Brie - do any of us have any good spell to make magical replica.
Mambo: Vandis - yes, and I think I could do it tomorrow if we stay here tonight and I see no reason why we not stay here tonight.
Mambo: An hour to hour and 1/2 has pass so far since we fought the sphinxes.
Mambo: Vandis is looking for Fabricate Object.
Mambo: or something that does stone into any shape.
Mambo: mambo suggest wax from ears of Kress ;-0
Mambo: Vandis rejects "Stone Shape."
Mambo: Vandis suggests Limitted Wish.
Mambo: Kress suggests we teleport into town, buy best figure of Osiris we can and use it here.
Mambo: mambo - but it have to be clay or wax
Mambo: Brie - yes, yes, let's teleport to pantheon palace!! Or send Zhaji and Kress.
Mambo: Brie - our quote "friend" used some sort of word of recall abiltiy. They have used some of their resources.
Mambo: Zhaji - we have too. Why not go and stay overnight.
Mambo: Brie - He might pop away.
Mambo: Brie and Zhaji measure appropriate scale.
Mambo: Very small ones.
Mambo: mambo - it have to be clay or wax!!
Mambo: No, says Vandis, it can be, but does not have to be.
Mambo: mambo - Oh, then get something in very fine jewel or gold!!
Mambo: Vandis - get two, just in case, no, get three!
Mambo: Brie - go get the three best statues he has.
Mambo: Vandis - maybe someone carrying one would be good.
Mambo: mambo - why not get dozen and put them in every room of temple upstairs.
Mambo: Brie - leads Zhaji away from the model - "We are counting on you, sister."
Mambo: Zhaji snaps her fingers and disappears.
Mambo: Brie - "Brother, no pressure, but it's all on YOU at this point."
Mambo: Vandis - I think singing would be very inspiring, don't you?
Mambo: Brie - I don't it will matter.
Mambo: Mambo - Him give you compliment, Brie. If him like you sing - you sing. Be nice.
Mambo: Back at Pantheon Palace =
Mambo: Proprietor greets Zhaji who teleports outside and then enters.
Mambo: Zhaji - I was wondering if you happened to have a few inch tall statuettes of Orisis.
Mambo: Prop - Of course I do! Our selection is over here.
Mambo: Zhaji picks the 3 most well made fancy ones.
Mambo: See url prices for 1 inch to 3 size statuettes. Pick your price.
Mambo: Prices are in silver.
Mambo: jade ones there and emerald, for instances
Mambo: go with higher price
Mambo: 3 at 1200 silver (120 gold each)
Mambo: One is gold with emerald eyes. One is Jade with gold eyes. One is Emerald witih gold eyes.
Mambo: Or, actually Emerald with tiny diamond eyes.
Mambo: Brianna has been chuckling in her mind.
Mambo: Zhaji pops back into our midst!! Pop!
Mambo: Brianna has been singing songs of manual dexterity and religioius excellence.
Brianna rolls Brianna Perform Singing (Females) (d20 + 32): [14 + 32] = 46
Mambo: "I've been working on the statue, alll the live long daaaay..."
Mambo: Zhaji shows us the beautiful statuettes.
Mambo: Which one should we try fist, asks Mambo?

Mambo: yes.
Mambo: We fixed the one down here, now have to go upstairs, as we feel urged to do.
Mambo: As we march up the steps in the wall, the steps shrink and we shrink with the steps.
Mambo: However, we don't feel anything telling us to stop and indeed feel ecouraged to procede.
amcy loads a new map.
Mambo: At top, we find ourselves suddenly of normal size standing in garden courtyard of upper temple.
