The Wasteland of Gath: The Pit (Fenra); Labyrinth Lord

Fenra the temporarily displaced (played by +Andrew Byers), left the bus with Kerg the Dwarf in tow. After a time, Kerg had to relieve himself and rushed forward to a massive pothole in the road to do so. Something he saw within alarmed him and he loudly exclaimed, "Jesus Christ!"

     There came a terrible moaning from the pit and out of it emerged three nightmare creatures. Despite the tar on their bodies, their pinkish-gray skin could be seen. They were about 3-4' tall with long, spindly limbs. Their fingers ended in sharp claws where the bone grew through the skin. They had dropping facial features, long floppy ears and a small mouth full of pointed teeth. Fenra vaguely recalled that the monsters were somehow related to witches, but the exact detail eluded her for the moment.

     Several rounds of melee ensued. It began with Kerg - his pants still at his ankles - grievously wounding one of the beasts with his crossbow as it emerged from the pit. The remaining two drew near and a fierce fight ensued. After several furious blows, both fleshlings were cut down.  

     As the melee drew to a close, Fenra and Kerg saw an awful little mutant run down the road. It had been hiding in a bush, watching the battle. It dropped a bucket as it fled. Kerg looked to Fenra for direction and she ordered him to fire. Kerg shot and wounded the wretch, but it continued running. Fenra then drew her short bow and fired. The arrow hit the mutant in the back and blew straight through him. The mutant dropped face first into the gravel.

     Afterward, Fenra investigated the pit and found it to contain quite a bit of tar. Within the tar were the skeletal remains of various humans and humanoids. She also found a bucket containing severed hands and feet that the mutant had dropped. Was that freak feeding the monsters? Also found was a skull of unusual properties. This one was about 60% bone and 40% smooth aquamarine. The slain mutant was searched and all that was found were three sling stones, a sling and a folded up page from an old pornographic magazine. Fenra tore up the page in disgust as Kerg sadly watched the pieces blow away in the wind.

XP for Fenra : 15 from fleshlings + 5 from the mutant + 175 from treasure = 195 xp

Treasure: Aquamarine encrusted skull worth 175 gp
