Session 7-1

Execution

A few days went by in Sloobludop before the big day arrived. Trying to outmaneuver her father Blopp one morning was in your apartment just to remind you what powers Lemogorgon had bestowed upon her, and what he could bestow upon them. Then she left you. Some time later Plopp came with his entourage to pick you up and the whole procession went to the shrine to the Deep Father. After the excitement at the shrine had risen enough Blopp made her appearance and the plan was set in motion. You were presented as a sacrifice, Blopp graciously accepted and as a token of friendship gave the sacrificial dagger to her father so he could sacrifice a captive Duergar to Lemogorgon. But it never came so far as Plopp plunged the dagger into his daughter, killing her.

Session 7-2

Lemogorgon rises

As Blopp fell and tumbled down the stairs towards the water the excited manta ray who expected the remains of the sacrifice entered into a frenzy, as Blopp's blood started mingling with the waters the frenzy increased. The Kuo-Toa on land also started to become aggravated and tension rose. Plopp declared the Sea-Mother's superiority and the Duergar was in the confusion rescued from certain sacrifice. Tensions rose as Blopp's followers shouted against Plopp's betrayal but before it could come to blows two huge hyena heads broke the Darklake's water. Soon thereafter it's torso and before the 30ft high creature most of the gathered Kuo-Toa were chanting LEMOGORGON-LEMOGORGON!

Session 7-3

Escape

Not really knowing what they were up against the Motley Crew with their rescued Duergar headed as far as possible from the beast. Before they could even get to their apartment and their gear they heard a familiar voice calling out DEMOGORGON. Turning around you saw Eldreth walking towards the beast uttering words in Abyssal only to be engulfed by the beast. After quickly grabbing your gear you headed into the caverns surrounding Sloobludop. Some hours later the Duergar, Hemeth, was in good enough condition as you needed him to get to Gracklstugh, especially as he told you he often traversed it's waterways. So you snuck back into Sloobludop but not without attracting attention. While no beasts spotted your reentry several scared Kuo-Toa did and once you found yourselves at the boat Shooshar had his arms full with tadpoles he had been given to take to safety. You set out on the lake, before you could leave Sloobludop behind you you were assaulted by flying demons that you gave a watery grave.

Session 7-4

Gracklstugh

With your new guide Hemeth skillfully guiding you across the Darklake you found yourselves at the Gracklstugh docks before long. There you were greeted by some guards who after you declared you were carrying Wreit's fungi started acting suspiciously. Since the fungi were of the narcotic variety non-Duergar weren't allowed to be in the possession of them, so they would have to be confiscated. You got the feeling one of the packs would "disappear". Before any illicit activity could happen their Sergent ended his invisibility and set his guards straight. The fungi was confiscated, but you were promised a message would be sent to Saltbaron, Wreit's patron, telling him to pick them up and if he so felt inclined to award you. You were also told to quarter yourself at Ghohlbrorn's Lair, the only inn for non-duergar. Once you had got your rooms you went to the market to sell the wares you had so far acquired. The Mundane cup you had found in the sarcophagus earlier you got identified as the Drunks' Bane.
