The Barrows: Part 4

Session 41 Back outside, the heroes discussed how best to go back in and destroy the undead barrow wights and their self-proclaimed king. With their magic-arsenal at full-strength and armed as well as they were, it wasn’t long before they decided to just head back in and simply charge them.

Ruined Monastery: Part 2

Session 37 From the cellar below the heroes could hear coughing, then grumbling, movement, and a splash of water as the fires were doused. A few more coughs followed, then silence. Alf decided he was tired of waiting and headed down again, spotting a couple of the ogres lurking in the darkness, squinting to see. He told them he could see them, and that he and his party were looking for something, and they intended to search the place, whether
