Demon Queen's Enclave

At the urging of the Mayor of Moonstair or Baron Paranon or whoever we last talked to we decided to investigate the increased Drow activity in the area. You may also recall that 2 or 3 Drow fled during out final encounter with Skulmad. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like letting things get away without killing them. So we headed to the Underdark to investigate this.
Encounter 1
Traveling through the tunnels we stumbled into the middle of a battle between a small party of undead and a small party of Drow led by a Drider. We indiscriminately killed all of them.
Encounter 2
We came to a bridge leading to the Drow city of Phaervorul (I had to look that up). The city looked to be under attack. Large portions of it were on fire and we could hear the sounds of fighting. Standing guard on the bridge was a rather large spider, who was immediately thrown into the chasm by Mark. Steve then got dragged to the underside of the bridge by one of the smaller spidery-looking things that popped out. Gus, Jake and I dangled from a rope and threw shit at the spidery-thing while Nick and Mark held the rope from the top of the bridge. While this was going on the big spider came back, but we eventually killed everything and noone fell into the chasm.
Encounter 3
The first place we stopped in the city was the slave quarters. There were a few large slaves in a large, open room and goblin snipers in the battlements above. Gus picked off most of the snipers with magic missiles while the rest of us charged into the building. I think I straight up murdered one of the slaves and we made fairly quick work of the rest. The remaining goblins jumped from the battlements or ran away or something.
Skill Challenge
I think this is where we took an extended rest. In a dream we are met by Zirithian, a Vampire Orcus-worshipping Drow noble. We regaled him with some exaggerated tales of our adventures and some cheap parlor tricks (I think Gus pulled a coin out of his ear). Impressed, he asked for our help in defeating the Drow. It appears he is responsible for the attack on the city and the presence of the undead.
Encounter 4
Refreshed, we continued on into the city. Next we came to the home or workshop of a powerful wizard. There were some dead bodies in jars of fluid and a statue. To put it metaphorically, we ‘sneaked in his window’ and ‘snatched up his people’. In other words we gang-raped that bitch and killed him before he got a chance to do anything cool. There were a couple of large monsters who showed up, but we killed them too.
Encounter 5
I don’t remember too many details about the last encounter. Something charged us and blocked the doorway, I murdered something, and someone got eaten by a Hook Horror. Needless to say we killed everything and called it a night.

King of the Trollhaunt Warrens Story Update

We picked up the story still in the Warrens looking for Skulmad.
Encounter 1 had a hag tending her mushroom garden who we indiscriminately decided to kill. At this point the troll skeletons in the go-go cages hanging from the ceiling reanimated and we had to kill those too. I think a second hag also showed up at some point.
Encounter 2 we finally found Skulmad in his throneroom where he was attended by a few troll guards and some Drow as well. When the battle started going badly for the enemies, the Drow turned invisible and used the throne to teleport away. When Skulmad fell his eye disappeared in a flash. After the battle we found a human scribe who had been kept prisoner. He told us the throne can be used as a gateway into the Feywild. We figured out that Vard, the original owner of the Eye was attempting to come back from the dead to wreak havoc on the world of the living or some such nonsense and it was up to us to stop him. Skulmad had been sent to find the Eye and return it to Vard, but decided to keep it for himself instead.
Skill Challenge we figured out how to use the throne to teleport us into the Feywild.
Encounters there were a few more encounters I don’t recall in any great detail including a HUGE Fomorian who was guarding the entrance to something. We then fought some ghost trolls and a displacer beast (while Nick spend most of the encounter falling into and climbing out holes in the ground).
Stone Cauldron eventually we found the Cauldron Chamber where Vard was waiting for us. Ghost trolls kept coming out of the Cauldron, but we concentrated on and eventually killed Vard. After he fell, Vard returned the next round out of the Cauldron, but without his Eye. I was able to find the eye in another part of the chamber and throw it in the Cauldon, thus killing Vard and destroying Moran’s Eye for good (I think). We found a shit-ton of loot & swag including Sunwrath, heirloom sword of Therund which we returned to Baron Perenon.
Next up we will be running P2: Demon Queen’s Enclave

Story Update - King of the Trollhaunt Warrants
I got warrants!

We picked up the story with the party approaching the same entrance to the Warrens we used previously. Thanks to a lucky 69 on a percentile-roll, the gate was still all busted up from our previous break-in. We worked our way into the Warrens in a more-or-less random fashion all the while searching for King Skulmad.
Encounter 1 found us in a congested hallway with a bunch of rooms leading off of it and an escarpment overlooking it. We killed a bunch of troglodytes and moved on.
Encounter 2 found us in a large cavern with a log spanning a small river. We killed a bunch more troglodytes here.
Encounter 3 was in a large cavern dominated by a mound of skulls. There were some annoying flying, flaming skulls, a Troll, and a ‘Dire Bear’ that turned out to be, in fact, a Dire Bear. No problems here due in part to me straight up murdering a bitch.
Encounter 4 was in a small lake against a dragon who kept dropping globes of darkness.
