Woke up mostly on time, got ready quickly. Got through standup easily.
Lunch = Dunkin. The rain required an umbrella, otherwise no big deal. Humidity was pretty fucking bad though, made it hard to breathe.
Didn't take any new tickets, instead too busy with my own. Also took a phone call for HS since he was overwhelmed by his traffic cop shift. Having been there, I figured better to just do it then risk him getting burnt out.
Showered before dinner.
Dinner = leftover chicken & rice + Crabbie's + Magner's berry while I tried to get responses out to the last few tickets.D&D: Unnamed 5e campaign
started an hour late because of my stupidness.
A grotto is a cave by the sea. No sign of guards. I sent Frider in first, Al followed with his goggles on. The water is leaving, so the tide is going out. First room seemed empty. The next room had some sort of tide pool in the middle behind a pillar. Ajax and Al went to investigate. Before I could stop them, Al stuck his hand into the pool. The pillar came alive to attack us.
We avoided the roper's attacks initially, somehow. Al couldn't hit its eye. Sparky mauled one of its tentacles. Frider kept hitting it with death from above. I backed out of the range of the tentacles and let loose with firebolt. Sparky & Ajax both got grabbed. Ajax & Al cut loose and went nuts. Sparky got free too and ripped the damn tentacle off! I tried to finish it off and hit Ajax but accident. Whoops. I could see Ajax glower "Not cool!" from the other side of the room haha. The roper gummed Al. Ajax finished it off.
Ajax asked Al "What did you grab?" "Some crude statue. Unrelated to Ioun? Driftwood. Humanoid. Sort of magical. Maybe." I had no idea if this was magical or dangerous. I checked the pool and found a necklace made of small bones. Not magical, possibly a shaman used this for rituals.
In the next room, there was a strong smell of fish. Also a giant shell in the middle. Also a waterlogged chest. Also a boat. The boat didn't appear to be a monster. The sea shell had clammed up. The driftwood pillars weren't alive. I tried to read the markings. Claw marks? Depicted a scene in 3 parts. Bottom of the ocean, the rise, and fish creatures worshipping a large creature. Is it an aboleth? Nope. (I only know this from my discussion with the Vertruses.)
Al went to the chest. I begged him to check for traps first... and he found something! Al disarmed it easily, then pocketed the poison. A living creature?! He went through the chest, full of shells... but something magical at the bottom. A pearl of some sort. Al talked to it... It didn't respond. Illusion type magic? Seems to be enchanted, can maybe cast minor illusions.
Al checked the shell. Didn't seem to be alive. Ajax checked for a way to open the clam. He found something!? The clam was alarmed, but Ajax managed to open it the proper way. Ajax disarmed the bells. We suspected something's up with this cave. It feels off./D&D
I was so angry about Thomas Parrott getting fired by Black Library that I dumped $1100 into various state elections. No more books about space marine for the rest of the year.
Went down a rabbit hole of stupid stuff for some reason instead of going to bed.
