The first thing we had to take care of today was getting our Cleric and Fighter conscious again. Being a Level 5 Ranger, I had still had two spell slots remaining and one of my spells is Cure Wounds. I quickly cast that on the Cleric so he could gain a few hit points. Once the Cleric was conscious, he was able to cast Prayer of Healing with a Level 3 spell slot and we all regained 20 additional hit points. Once we were all on our feet again we were ready to continue through the castle and carry on.
We managed to find the steps leading to the dungeon of the castle and hopefully our way out. Once in the dungeon we came across a pool of water and we saw looed to be a gem sparkling in the water. Our Rogue use Mage Hand to reach in and grab the gem. Thinking it was safe, our Fighter got greedy and reached into the water to scoop up some gold and some kind of glob dripped onto him causing some acid burns. Once we took care of the glob, the Rogue continued to scoop up the remaining valuables.
Continuing through the dungeon we managed to come into a room that was filled with mist, all but our Cleric rolled poorly on our Perception rolls and the Cleric being short as he is, managed to see on the ground what looked to be markings of a teleport. Our Dwarf Cleric shouted out the words "DRAZIR" and poof, we all vanished.
The next thing we realized we were all standing in a wooded forest and what looked to be a lodge in the distance. We decided to proceed towards the lodge and enter. We searched most of the first floor and the second floor with not much alarm, until we were approached by four guards. The guards had said that Talis has been expecting us. Not wanting to put up a fight at this moment, we decided to see what Talis had wanted from us. When we met Talis and asked what she wanted, she said that she has been watching us from the beginning and has an offer for us. She believes that her ranking in the Cult should be higher than what it is, and wants us to eliminate Rezmir. Talis also mentioned to us that she will provide guidance on reaching Skyreach Castle and will also provide a pass-phrase. We accepted Talis's offer with the condition that she provide us food and shelter for the night and we will continue the journey in the morning.
That was all the time we had for today's session. By completing Episode 6 and Episode 7, we all gained 2 levels. Myself, my youngest son the Cleric, the Rogue are all Level 7, and my oldest son the Fighter is now Level 8.
We will be missing the next two weeks, So stay tuned later in February as we eneter the final episode of the adventure 'Hoard of the Dragon Queen.
