Short version for record keeping and recalling the progress. Feel free to add any detail, relevance or comment.

A group of 7 adventurers (Jacob, Jessa, Neselde, Kasit, Karina, Cain, Gregory) gathered at the Inn of the besieged fort/town.

Jessa, Karina and Cain, were strangers, while Gregory, Neselde, Jacob and Kasit were sent to the fort with the mission of infiltrating and opening the gates for the invading force and were acquainted with each other.

There was also a mention of the wizard apprentice residing in the lord's manor, who supposedly was in possession of a scroll, which could be a major factor contributing to the defender's advantage.

After the brief greetings and including the witch Jessa and bar wench Karina to the party, the group headed outside trying to scout the defences and gather more information.

Some time later, they met an elegant individual by the name of Reeds, who turned their attention towards the sewers. Shortly thereafter the group advanced to the severs and began clearing the traps, gathering treasure and killing goblins.

Two most notable figures met in the dwarven ruins that lied below the town was a dwarven ghost and an illusory projection of a demon lord.

Dwarven ghost asked for help with clearing the lower levels from monsters, while allowing the party to make use of the treasury he was guarding.

The demon lord mentioned how he was trapped by the dwarves several hundred years ago and offered great rewards upon freeing him.

There was no clear decision whether to secure the dungeon or free the demon, find the scroll or kill the guards and open the gates and after exploring most of the first level, the party returned to the inn through a secret passage.

Emerging from the passage the team was quickly surrounded by the alert guards. Kasit tried the honest approach and explained how they found the secret door and how the team explored the dungeon and slain monsters. Somehow this was enough to improve relations and to have guardsmen merrily accompany the group to the inn offering drinks.

There they again met the mysterious figure of mr. Reed, who, when approached by Kasit explained how his interest in the dwarven ruins comes both from his historian and treasure seeker's life goal.

Adventurers, unable to ascertain the sincerity of Reed's explanations decided to meet with the Lord at the manor. After explaining to him the possible danger coming from the ruins, the idea was quickly dismissed as never in the several hundred year long history after the fall of dwarves was there any trouble from the deeps.

In the end the lord was convinced to assist the mercenaries in exploring the lower levels of the dungeon by sending several guards and the mage apprentice plus some climbing equipment with them.
Afterwards the group returned to the inn as the night was late and everyone weary.

Nesselde also split a pair of goblins in two with a greatsword - their heads went flying and spattered the ceiling of the dungeons with blood.

:D

Nesselde also tried to pickpocket Karina, unsuccessfully.

Also Kasitt sent his eidolon Sky down to scout the sewers before the party descended and soon after the group met the projected demon lord Sky was killed by a vicious double buzz-saw trap.

Jessa seemed to have a crush on the demon lord.

Gregory, despite his ample girth was able to escape a trap in an acrobatic fashion which he attributed to being fat.

Jacob just got beaten up, first by the trap, then by the armored goblin that kept dodging everyone's attacks, tough break.

I'm sorry, but we have a deep and meaningful relatonship based on mutual understanding and abiding respect for the totality of each other's being and support for each other's long-term goals and self-actualization.

On my DM shoulders there's the fairy of order and fair ruling, while on the other sits the imp of drama & chaos, if it isn't obvious the imp loves this plot hook and the fairy really hates it.

The fairy suggests a game of chance to decide the outcome, the imp floors her with a lead pipe.

Just keep in mind this is the imp of drama & chaos, not meaningful & respectful relationships.

... to be honest, that's still pretty attractive to a half-orc. :smoker:

Way to bag someone outside your social class, dude.
