After a nice long night's sleep, the party is ready for adventure again.  But will they choose to continue deeper into the moathouse or return to Hommlet?

After a long night’s rest, the party heads deeper into the moathouse ruins.  Lester doesn’t even get a chance to identify his new scrolls.





That…is a huge, ugly rat. Lyndus freaks out upon seeing it.  I think that might be a half-eaten housecat in the corner.





More oversized critters, this one a monster snake.  Luna demonstrates how to use a sling.







There just isn’t enough room for everyone to fight it.  The random junk laying about is hampering mobility.

So, Lessiah decides to explore elsewhere.  She opens a door, reveling what could only be described as an unholy cross between a mosquito and a bat.





The snake, meanwhile, is pummeled with magic missiles.





Lessiah manages to find the weak point on one of the bats, through sheer dumb luck and being able to re-roll dice rolls by having the ‘luck’ domain.

Or maybe she just smashes the darn thing.





The battle with the viper, surprisingly, finishes without incident.  Once again Eladan is the one to deliver a solid finishing blow.





Luna manages to directly hit mosquito-bat-thing with a sling bullet, more or less finishing it off.




However, by then the stirges have already done a lot to put Lessiah out of action.  1 point of damage per hit doesn’t seem like much until you take into account their CON-lowering blood sucking ability.  And unlike normal HP-reducing injuries, a Cure Light Wounds spell will do nothing to fix this.

Without access to powerful spells, it will take multiple rests to recover from this.

Dear diary

Suprisingly, trying to fling an arrow with a sling doesn't work so well. Thankfully the helpful party I'm with, pointed out that stones are suppose to be flung with slings.
The more you know!

I feel... weird. I wonder why?
* Lessiah pokes her arm with her other arm.
Nope. Not a clue. Can I go lie down? No, wait, mystery! Must... uncover... all the mystery...

The party finds some more bloodsucking bats.  I decide to send in the character whom would be least affected by CON damage.









The whole room was a dead end, so the party turns around without bothering to check what the stirges might of been guarding.

The rats from before block the way out.  They seem to be non-aggressive, but they are huge, ugly, and are succeeding at creeping out poor Lyndus.  The party makes the mistake of trying to fight them.





There’s a reason why rolling a 1 in this game doesn’t make you drop your weapon or anything like that.  1’s are sadly far too common to have to put up with such.





To put things in perspective, a normal rat would have 1 HP and could only ever do 1 damage per attack (remember, HP loss signifies a substantial life-threatening injury, not a minor claw scratch).  A minor scratch would be something like an attack roll of 8 against your unarmored AC of 10.

These things are about equal in fighting ability as a military conscript (level 1 warrior) might be.







Again, the frontline is getting too crowded.  Slab has decides he had enough with the monster rats.









As the last rat bleeds out from its fatal wounds, more furry demons crawl out.  Thankfully, these ones are also apathetic to the party’s presence, and seem to be ignoring the wounded prey…for now.

That an endless spawn of rats there. Good for XP farming.

If I wanted to XP farm, I would of installed the version of the Circle of Eight mod that does include the user-made content, including respawning moathouse bandits.  Tad more exciting then just rats, plus you get coin from sale of loot as well.

Not that xp farming is really required, mind you.
