Tales from Elrond

Battling the Guardian

With the four required artifacts of Baphoment in hand, the group strategies on how to proceed with the ritual and deal with the green dragon guardian. Magnara shares his extensive knowledge of dragon abilities and tactics learned from his years of growing up and serving in the armies of the now destroyed dragonkind kingdom of Gol’redar. With this in mind, Gwen casts protection spells on Takashi and herself to help resist the dragon’s poisonous breath weapon. 4EB4DCC4-00A6-4D60-AEA7-2F07A8015AE8.jpegPrepared for battle, the party place the artifacts in the four runic circles and with a mighty roar, the green dragon flies out of a large pit in the central chamber. Additionally, numerous traps are triggered, included a giant rolling sphere of Force energy that makes a circuit around the central chamber smashing anything in its path. After an initial blast of poisonous gas at Vaylerian, Gibbet and Takashi, which they managed to survive, the battle becomes a cat and mouse game thru the various rooms and corridors where the party are unable to attack the dragon except with ranged weapons or if the dragon lands to engage in melee, which it only does on isolated foes. Both Gwen and Lester go down during the battle, but are saved from death by healing magic. Despite being grouped up during the later stages of the battle, to protect each other and avoid the traps, the dragon doesn’t use its breath weapon again after its initial blast and is taken down by simultaneous attacks by Lester and Takashi unleashing eldritch blasts and arrows as the dragon bears down on the party.

Taking a moment to heal their wounds, the party presses forward through the now opened inner sanctum doors, traveling through a heavy gray mist before finding a set of closed double doors. With Magnara leading the way, the party finds what looks to be the final area of the Well of Demons with a ghastly ritual taking place. Several demons protect a gnoll with bat-like wings and they start to advance on the party. Roaring in rage, Gibbet charges in and engages two demonic-looking gnolls while the rest of the party rush in to engage with the other demonic foes. Magical fire pounds both sides and sword and claw clash as a fierce melee breaks out…
