Wierdo's Bhaalspawn BretherenDouble double dragons
Wierdo and her gang made their half-day trek back to Amkethran to pick up some rope. Yeah, rope. I mean, whatever happened to that magical rope they used to climb down to the underdark? Didn't we just tug it a couple of times to make it come loose, just like when Sam did in Return of the King? Huh, you mean we forgot that rope?
Anyway, they got their rope and became a town joke for the day. Never mind. Let's laugh with everyone else and rest up a day or so.
Finally the party returned to the entrance to Abby's lair. The walk was welcome because they ate a fair bit while resting, so it was good to work it off. Has anyone not thought about riding horses in Baldur's Gate?
Some of you may remember me mentioning that Wierdo had laid a few traps around, just in case. Anyway, Wierdo got immediately suspicious when her remote trap control indicated that some of her carefully laid traps had snared something! And to look at the report, that something was a couple of dragons!
Aha! The party was currently 'naked', so they buffed up, summoned help and became invisible. Then they advanced to find two beautiful black dragons, although they did seem quite damaged by the traps! Lucky for them that they were immune to the acid trap.
Pre-weakened as they were, they didn't survive long under the party's well prepared and furious assault. I do feel a little sorry for them. This result would have been completely different if Wierdo was less paranoid and the party had been caught unawares.
But that wasn't the end of it! A green dragon and a red dragon then joined the party, taunting Wierdo. But Wierdo got the last laugh, as the red dragon landed on top of some of Wierdo's traps. But they didn't kill her and she flew away. She left us to deal with the green dragon while she sought healing for herself.
I wonder if they were a mated pair? If they had baby dragons, what colour would they be? Brown dragons (green+red = brown)? What would brown dragon breath be? Poo breath? Oh please, too disgusting to contemplate.
Anyway, moving right along, the green dragon opened with poison breath which was a big mistake as it made Annakin angry. And when Annakin gets angry his dark side comes out. And then anybody near him, that he doesn't like, suffers.
Green dragon didn't last long. I'm not quite sure what actually killed him, because it couldn't have been a dispel effect. Anyway, he died and then the red dragon came back (all healed).
Carnifex was quite a bit tougher to kill. She came and taunted Wierdo, as usual. Wierdo told her to bring it on as she was trying to make a matching dinner setting of different coloured dragon scales, and she needed red to complete the set.
BTW, the real Wierdo has a blue ring around her (fire shield blue) and her simulacrum is the mirror imaged one. Below, the sim is casting ADHW from a scroll on her quick items belt. Wierdo is an illusionist and can't cast necromantic spells, but as a thief she can use any item. If her sim uses the scroll then the real one isn't used up.
Relentless spell casting manages to overwhelm Carnifex until she is ultimately defenceless.
Eventually the red dragon dies. Romantically (?) , she falls on top of her green dragon companion.
After this, Wierdo's band move through the remainder of Abazigal's lair, killing a lot of floating eyes, death tyrants and elder orbs to complete the quest for the Reversal Scroll, obtaining the bronze pantalettes in the process!
Finally, the party was going to set free the red dragon guarding the entrance to Abby's inner sanctum, but it attacked instead so the party had to kill her.
Party is now just about to confront Abazigal. Wierdo is looking for traps when she notices some words scratched into the rock near the door. It reads:
"Ashoka was here
