THERE WILL BE NO GAME TOMORROW DUE TO FISCAL MONTH END WHERE I WORK

Games are normally on Friday nights sometime after 5:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.  

We had a meat lovers pizza with the pepperoni out and philly cheese steak substituted.  (Although one feeder found a pepperoni slice on his portion.)

Again some liberties have been taken with the story line, mostly to shorten it.  But it also caused me to avoid third person plural pronouns (them, their, they) to ensure the object or subject of certain sentences by using a fully qualified form, (the Party, Brotherhood of Joseph, Magi of Jesus, or Maidens of Mary.)

++++ START OF SESSION ++++

After fitting Thune with a peg-leg the party left the room through the opposite exit and entered a short hall with a "T" intersection.  There was a door to the right and a statue of Jesus to the left, fully mounted crucifix style against the wall.

The party decided to pack away the Brother's of Joseph gear they had been given and continue on without a disguise.

Namo, our Thief, having learned his job dutifully checked for traps on Jesus and found none.  (That isn't to say there weren't any, he just didn't find any.)  Either way he determined that the statue's arms where hinged and decided to pull the right arm.  The wall on which the statue was mounted swerved away revealing a 60 foot hallway with two doors.

Eschewing the hallway, the party checked out the other door, opposite the statue.  Finding a panel with eight runes next to the door, they pushed one of the runes and after a lengthy grinding and some rumbling, the door opened up to encounter a group of Cynics coming towards them.  Feigning friendship (and playing an undetectable lie for 24 hours card), the party convinced they new group they were returning spies sent from outliers.  They even used the opened secret door behind the Jesus statue as proof they knew their way about.  

It turned out this new group of Cynics were the "Magi of Jesus" faction, at odds with the Brothers of Joseph and the (warrior) Maidens of Mary (who were all against the Ba'al faction.)  There was an element of doubt as to their story, but they claimed such "deep cover"as only the faction's Headquarters (further down) could vouch for them.  They declared their purpose to unify the three factions against Ba'al because their spy mission found new powers they could bring.

Thus Party used Cadfael as proof of their good intent.  (The Party had determined these three factions against the Ba'al faction had no true Clerics as the three factions had only Magic Users and Fighters, only the Ba'al worshippers had Clerics.)   In effect, they had Cadfael cast the Clerical spell, "Create Water".

"Wow," the Cynics said, "we haven't had a Cleric in hundreds of years!"  "We gotta show this to the Maidens and the Bros."

They all forthwith went down the another hall and to a similar doorway, and punching new runes into a pad by the door.  A few more grinding sounds later the door opened and party went down the same hall.

(This is apparently a hallway on a rotating turnstile with 8 positions making 4 connections to opposite ends of the level.)

At the end of the rotating hall the met the guards of the Maidens of Mary section.  And no, these are not the nuns of Castle Anthrax from Monty Python, since they wear armor all the time.  Although they did have a captured Joe-Bro in the next room to which they were about to commit Death by Snu-snu.  

Performing another miracle, Cadfael cast a Purify Water on which the party had corrupted, (don't ask how).  Suitably impressed, the Maidens decided to join forces with the Magi and the Party.  

It only remains to go back upstairs and convince the Joe-Bros.
