HackMoor 2018/03/29 Looking South to See Gorignak

Second attempt at this post, first attempt seems to have disappeared.

Games are (usually) on Thursday nights sometime after 6:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

We had a Spinach and Chicken pizza with fresh lumps of Mozzarella.

There is an image attachment to this post that the email version didn't get, at map of this level that they have explored so far. Due to black and white format, areas of shadow not explored are indistinguishable from solid walls.

PART 1.

++++ START OF SESSION ++++

I deemed we did not have sufficient Players for a quorum, so we played another three Player session of Rail Baron. This time the two losers from the last game outplayed the winner from the previous game.

On the side however, I asked the Player running Aerys to conceptualize the room they were in. She decided to look to the opening to the South and met a strange creature made out of earth and rock. It wasn't hostile, and started to talk to Aerys in unintelligible sounds. At which point I suggested a comprehend languages spell may be in order.

For the sake of the story I named the creature Gorignak, the rock monster from Galaxy Quest. (The module gives it a different name but I think this is better.)

Added an image attachment to this post a map of this level that they have explored so far. Due to black and white format, areas of shadow not explored are indistinguishable from solid walls. Made some attempts to mark shadows.
