And We Thought the Flesh Jelly was Bad!
We're starting to get good at killing large horrible monsters. But I don't know if that's something to be proud of.

Stan the gnome fighter has joined us.
He apparently owes money to Benco.
We give Jason a quick catch-up.
There is enough slime from the dead demons to harvest 10HD each.
We see a landing up the large stair to the east. The northwest passage soon turns north. Sainooli looks up the steps. We follow as she searches up the stairs.
ON the landing are stairs continuing up to the east and passage to south. Life sized statues of olman warriors. They wear helmets and shields and carry spears. We check the stairs and are pretty sure these are the stairs we looked down earlier.
Do we check the room? Sainooli checks the statues. After 10 minutes or so she finds nothing. We head south. 100’ or so and we see a room ahead.
A square room holds 18 3’ tall urns. As well as fishing tools. They are more recent than Olman. Stairs heading down to the west. Listen check… Some of us hear what sound like voices. Words: Unknown, but Alex thinks it’s aquan. Zeden hears splashing and sharp hushed whispers. He is also thinking there’s three creatures.
Alex and Zeden head down announcing they are coming.
A large limestone flooded cave. The stone fashioned into strange furniture. The table holds many vials of translucent colored liquids. The water appears 4 feet deep. The creatures attempt a surprise! The large fiendish kopru are failing to hide behind the tables. We’ve heard of this race from the Sasserine Six. These seem much larger than the ones we've heard of. Slightly submerged around the water are gigantic oysters. Strange hook like growths coming from their shells. Sainooli believes that the tools above are used on these oysters.
The water is 4’ deep and anyone inside gets +2 cover

11th 5940 XP
12th 4320 XP
The Kopru are wearing large masterwork studded leather. Six of the oysters have reached 8’ across! The tables still have much glasswork.
Alex detects the armor is magic. Studded +3. We search the bodies as well. Smash the Demogorgon holy symbols. 12HD
5 XP for each holy symbol
Alex finds nothing hidden about the table. Various chemicals. They could stimulate pearl growth in oysters. 100gp of pulverized gems in a crystal box.
Benco checks out the oysters. They’re obviously altered in some way. Black and white striped shells covered in wicked barbed hooks. Sainooli thinks the tools would help open them. But she doesn’t get it open and it starts wailing!
There is a passage heading east and one heading south. South is soon submerged as the ceiling drops to below water level. We head east.
We group up and Zeden gives us 26hp and 24hp.
The eastern passage soon widens into another room where the limestone is formed into lounge furniture. Sainooli notes an underwater passage leading out. A little debate and we head back to the room with the Hezrou.
Southwest passage. Filled with water. Just inside and off the hall is a room full of cells. Sainooli thinks it leads to the torture chamber she fell into from above. All appears rusted and covered in ceiling. We continue past the room and down the hall. Corner turns right to the north. Stairs rise up out of the water. There is a landing at the top and stairs lead back down.
Stan believes that something is suspicious. He wants to search the walls. Benco complies. He finds nothing.
The water on the other side is only two feet deep. Sainooli continues into the water. It’s quite slimy on the bottom. It begins to eat into her flesh!!!
Alex has heard of green slime. It’s dangerous and can kill. It can be scraped but will probably destroy whatever it scrapes. After that magic can burn or freeze it off.
Sainooli stumbles up and Zeden draws a dagger and scrapes it off her leg. He tosses his dagger before it eats his hand.
Meanwhile Stan is flaming into the water. Uses up a round of his ring.
Zeden pops Sainooli with a lesser resto. Stan continues. And manages to burn all the slime away to the next door.
11th 162 XP
12th 0 XP
The door is ancient and swollen into the frame. Sainooli steps up to the door and searches. Take 10 and no traps. Sainooli lightly taps on the door with a Str 6. After a few tries opens the door and the water rushes in!
Alex loses his footing and slams into Zeden, knocking him down and the two of them slam into Stan. Stan holds us up. 2non lethal
A stone desk carved as an olman head sits in the room. Walls are covered in shelving with stone tablets on them. Take 10 search. Benco finds the tablets have info in them. It’s ancient Olman. Nothing seems pertinent, but they must be worth a good 6000gp! In the desk is a secret compartment in the left eye. There is a magical dagger. +2 Human bane. 800gp two coral statues of fish with ruby eyes each 3000gp.
We load the tablets into our portable hole.
Zeden is getting a little flustered at the two olmans not caring about their history.
We head back to 4’ deep water and take the northern route. There are cracks, some several feet, in the masonry. Alex takes a look and thinks they were chewed by rats. Possibly giant ones. Sainooli proceeds with caution. She thinks there is some sort of hallway through a left hand one. We debate sending Stan. Alex refreshes message.
He proceeds and hears squishy sounds from the east…
Gooshing out of the eastern holes come some sort of yellowish slime, pseudopods grasping!
Ochre jelly. Ooze. This one appears way too big. HD around 17! Slashing, piercing, elec, no damage! They just split it. Acid dissolves only flesh. Immune to mind affecting. Climb speed. Grap and constrict blindsight. Solitary. Mass of protoplasm. Underground creatures. Malleable bodies. They are sought out by wizards. Often intombed with people to be dissolved instead of burned.

Stan goes down to explore the lair. It is disturbingly clean. He finds nothing and comes back.
We debate where to go. We squeeze up the tunnels. Alex gets stuck for a bit but gets himself out.
The room is tiled with ancient olman statues. Monsters with strange arms. 12 statues in all. Ceiling is 15 up. No access to the trapdoor. Alex steps in and a portcullis slams down in the doorway. 4 of the statues come to life!
