Games are on Monday night sometime after 5:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.
Apparently the Meat-Lover's pizza selection without the pepperoni and adding the philly-cheesesteak meat has become the party's standard. Next time I may add extra cheese.
++++ START OF SESSION ++++
Due to external factors, we had a minimal quorum but moved on.
Working on "actionable intelligence" obtained from the Slobgoblin leader the party had a choice of going directly after the dungeon leadership or picking off the inhabitants one room at a time. They chose the latter and started with the ghouls in the crypt. This made the progress rather slow but easy.
First stop was the Ghouls in the crypt. Easy pickins, ho hum. It led to their burrow in the back of the crypt where Jacko found some accumulated treasure of about 800 silver pieces.
Second, Jacko decided to follow the obvious trail of gold coin crumbs spaced evenly every ten feet further down the burrow until he found the baby three headed Hydra. Since his computed statistics showed he was faster he made a tactical decision and ran back the way he came, ducking into a side space as it came out into the main crypt hall where the party was. He stabbed it in the back as it passed while the party dealt with it although Jacko's strike was the death blow.
Third, the party followed the hall and turned down to the pool where their intelligence source said there was a Giant Predacious Diving Beetle. Adopting a habitual pattern of attack, they simply had Elefus lob a fireball into the pool room to parbroil it. While, damaged it simply retreated to the deep end (and escape route) to wait it out.
Lastly they went to where the Slobgoblin said there where Bugbear trainees awaiting marching orders. Again they had Elefus lob another fireball into the enclosed space where they picked them off as they came out.

P.S. Jacko was voted MVP and raised up to 3rd Level Infiltrator, (Creep).
