Last night was a real cave slog. The party hit all of the dead ends and loops on the south and east parts of the map. There was a little roleplaying with the pech encounter, but for most of the session it was map caves and kill/loot. The party did explore everything south and east of the river in the Lesser Caverns. They faced some heavy hitters tonight, with the clay golem and the formorian giants, but the biggest danger was themselves. After defeating the giants Plāsolder tried on one of the cloaks they found (cloak of poisonousness) and died instantly. Corbek had to use a wish to bring him back. Plāsolder wasn't as impulsive after that.
When we first started this campaign Eric wasn’t that into it. Hadn’t played in years, we started because our kids thought the D&D scenes from Stranger Things were cool. Now he’s really into it, and we booted the kids.
