++++ START OF SESSION ++++

From last posting...

Poof! They party finds itself in another Nexus. This time it is dry and hot but at least it is lit by flaming sconces. Again Jacko strangely does not feel uncomfortable while the rest of the party does.

This session was mostly combat with encounters. There was not much social interaction. Of note:

The party fought a Phycomid fungus (a.k.a. Rot Boy) and its viscid globs fell harmlessly off Elefus' armor. This monster was so bad it rolled a fumble and killed itself.

Next the party went down a few more halls and rooms and defeated a Jaundiced Grapper (which looked much like a Beholder with arms instead of Eye Stalks). The problem with this monster it was 15 feet in diameter and the party could simply retreat down 10 foot wide hallways and attack with ranged weapons. I would attributed the monster's defeat due to a poor choice of product placement in the dungeon.

The next item on the agenda, was a Subterranean Masticator which is simply a huge jaw with teeth on four legs. With Elefus in the lead my monster rolled critical hit, followed by double max damage 32 hit points, not wanting to let this one down I played a GM card that doubled that for 64 hit points. The player felt obliged to counter that card that canceled any hit. After that the monster was defeated normally.

Finally the party hit upon a lair of five more of these things, hiding behind the flames of fire pits. This time it was a group effort and the party defeated them all.

Lastly opposite this lair the party found another portal, a circular one in an octagonal room. It remains undecided whether the party will enter that or remain in this Nexi, as they have not yet found a gem that fits the Orb of Abyssal Death on this level.

Addendum: In raiding the monster's lair, Jacko found what turned out to be a Necklace of Strangulation. Seeing no way out of it he attempted to break it with a crushing blow, including a called shot to his own neck and succeeded. Elefus promptly healed him.
