In the massive cavern under the ground, Darius (wizard), Alex and Cassie (Paladins), Calvin (rogue) and Mega (undecided) come into a wide, open cave space. There are stalactites all over the ceiling and Darius mentions that there are D&D monsters who mimic them so watch out.
Cassie punches Calvin in the arm: Look! Look!
Calvin: Ow! Ow!
He follows her pointing and sees that one of the stalactites is moving but he shoots the wrong one (bad roll), it drops on him but be dodges nimble out of the way (excellent roll).
Alex kicks the monster a couple of times and destroys it. There’s a statue at the end of the cavern with a huge ruby embedded in it. Cassie wants to take it, but Calvin cautions her not to, since there could be a trap or something attached to it.
They find another tunnel and head down it, finding some old rusted metal bars blocking their way. Alex breaks these open and they hear a sound from further in that sounds like music. Following the sound they find a kind of medieval alchemicy lab, with a huge troll thing in an impressive helmet working away. Darius calls out, greeting him, and he turns and looks at them. “Interlopers, you will die!” He starts moving to attack them. Calvin raises his shotgun and blasts at the troll but the shot seems to bounce off. Cassie and Alex quickly make a plan and attack, Alex going left, jumps up onto a table and kicks the troll in the head. Cassie goes right, stabs him in the leg with her knife. Blood sprays out but the troll keeps moving.
Cassie: why is it still standing? There’s two slayers in the room!
Darius: You have to take its hit points down to zero!
Calvin blasts it again with his shotgun, which takes the hit points down to zero, meaning Calvin gets all the XP because he’s a big old kill steal. Oh yeah. Darius takes the impressive looking helmet and tries it on. Once it’s on his face is wreathed in shadows and his eyes glow red.
Megan: Take it off! TAKE IT OFF!
Darius: Awesome, I can see in the dark!
Alex notices a barred window in the back of the lab and goes to look through it. There’s a young blond, crew cutted, clean shaven young man in a small cell, he’s asleep on the bed.
Alex: You okay?
Man: I don’t know.
A: Who are you?
Man: I’m Private Jenkins.
A: what’s your first name?
Jenkins: That’s classified.
A: Okay, then, I’m gonna open the door now Classified Jenkins.
