Underhill at the Charred Inn

6 May, 1032/ 16 December, 2010

Our heroes are forced by returning bandits to take the underwater passage in the springhouse before they would have liked. Beyond the spring they find some sort of large ruined underground complex dedicated to a medusa-like snake goddess. Within this dungeon are many perilous traps, evidence of cannibalism, dangerous undead, and a mysterious library. Along the way, Melphius the Dark Wizard meets an untimely end.

thanks Tim — these do jog my memory for various bits I’ve forgotten or mis-emphasized & help for writing up Kankad’s version of things !

Glad it’s helpful. I tend to forget things, and an outline certainly makes for an excellent mnemonic aid. If you’re going to do a write-up, feel free to just edit it in on this entry—I have plenty of other stuff to do for the game, and Kankad’s quite the chronicler.
