The Ol’ Boar Inn is busy with patrons celebrating Richfeast but one table of 6 men, each with at least one young lady sitting on their lap, is especially raucous. Over the general noise you can hear the ringleader of the group, Albert, trying to impress the ladies with tales of their battle prowess.
First, we came to this pitch dark crevice in the earth. It was like the Oerth had not only opened her mouth and swallowed the castle whole but also all the light in the area. So down we went into the dark, with nothing but our clubs, some torches and our courage to protect us. At the bottom of the crevice you could see the top of what was once the citadel with rubble all around.
As we approached the citadel, a swarm of rats the size of large dogs came rushing at us from all sides out of the rubble. We bashed them over the head with our clubs and torches until nothing moved then we continued into the citadel.
The citadel was full of rotting bodies which he had to step over until we made it to the great stone door carved with all sorts of monstrous creatures. The cleric Nate bashed away at the door with his mace while the rest of us stood guard for attackers. It didn’t take long before a horde of these horned devil creatures tried to make their way into the corridor. We managed to hold the door shut for a while but eventually the little devils managed to pry the door open a crack.
That was when the damnedest thing happened, Breezie waved at the lead devil and said something I didn’t understand but it turns out the two of them were friends! She was able to convince the devil to leave us alone while we finished opening up the stone door but they must have been afraid of whatever was behind the stone door as they barricaded the door from the other side when they learned what we were doing.
I am not sure what all the fuss was about because when we finally got the door busted down there was nothing inside but a bunch of rusty iron keg with pipes that still sloshed some liquid inside it. Nate recognized the pipes as some sort of fancy outhouse of no worth so we just left it there and came back home.
We may yet find something though since we are going back tomorrow. Turns out that Erky Timbers went missing yesterday and his fiance Corkie believes he may have been captured by the devils in the Sunless Citadel. Another elf has come to town called Aidan, who has agreed to pay our wages so tomorrow we are going back in to become heroes. So kiss me baby cause tomorrow we may die!
