The Arcane Army (update 5)
The Army progressed through Baldur's Gate with no problems. Most enemies just died of shooting or magic missiles. Slightly more complex or interesting fights included:
- Entering Drelik's room invisibly allowed a couple of summons to join in the attack on him (he failed to cast a spell
and left behind an invis 10' scroll).
- Parsley had only just drawn fire from Ramazith's mustard jellies when she had to retreat
. Coming back again she once more took an immediate critical, but this time it hit a mirror and she was able to finish off the jellies without further ado.
- One floor up the Tower 5 characters went invisible to launch an attack on the ghasts - only to arrive and find that Thyme was not invisible and she was immediately held. Rosemary tried to make her invisible, but was just too late casting the spell and she became the second victim of the run. At the same time Parsley was hit by a critical and also held and it required a first use of the wand of monster summoning to keep her alive
- at the Iron Throne some stinking clouds and webs preceded a few skull traps. Alai of the casters was the only one to survive that and his confusion managed to affect Nutmeg (taking Thyme out of the conflict as well to look after him). However, once Alai was dead
the remaining fighters quickly perished.
Reporting back to Scar on some of the work done got everyone to level 8 and they celebrated by taking Duke Eltan's offer of an all-expenses paid trip to Candlekeep.
