Rangers of Shadowdeep into the Temple of Madness   Leave a comment

Link and Gwalchmai pick up their questing once again. This time our level was 8 so perfect for the different difficulty of the supplement.

Link and Birdo fight their way to the treasure . At this moment Emilia reveals the runes on the pillar triggering the trapdoor . This is the exit and two ghouls guard the way . Our heroes soon dealt with the ghouls and grabbing the two treasure tokens thanks to Gwalchmai’s teleport spell made for the exit .

Next was the pit of ghouls.

Gwalchmai and Link swung across the pit using the ropes and worked on the wheels . They despatched the ghouls trying to interfere.

In the pit the companions fought against the horde of ghouls . Birdo did try to swing across but fell flat on his face and needed healing.

Finally the doors opened and our heroes made it out from the pit of ghouls .
