The adventure continues in the harrowing chamber of Boneclaw the Wraith...
Close but not enough...
Sorry kid, but you failed, see...
Tommy follows after him, into the impossible combat.
Tommy: Agnes! Billy! Go! Its all up to you now!
Boneclaw: only... silver... or... magic... will... harm... me...
Billy: Get a grip Agnes, lets go!
Agnes: If only there was something I could do...
Katie: (mumbling through her paralysis) use your spell...
Agnes: Oh! I have one spell left, Detect Magic, but its useless, it wont hurt the Wraith!
Katie: (mumbling again, and gets a stern look from the DM) trust me...
Agnes: Oh! Maybe it will find something magical, like... a magic weapon! Then we can hurt that mean old Wraith!
Agnes: Well, we cant climb up there, so I guess we go in the hole... (sighs)
Billy: Another chamber... Magic weapons here we come!
Billy: Ok, I will use the potion, you take the Broom.
Agnes: I got a plan... (whispers so only Billy can hear)
Billy: Nice! Lets go kick some Wraith butt!
Agnes: Ok, Im a little bit afraid.
Billy: Just go with the plan! Now where is that Wraith?
The kids are floating face up in the water.
Perhaps this is some ritual to turn them into little Wraiths?
He counts as having -2 Armor Class which means the Wraith can only hit him on a 18+ on a d20!
Billy: Ok, Agnes, I dont know how much longer Im going to be gassy, so whatever youre doing, do it fast!
She gracefully circles up to the platform above where more magic was detected.
Its so funny to watch that she has to force herself to concentrate on her mission.
Inside the green pools she finds:
Wand of Paralyze,
Elven Boots and Cloak,
Gauntlets of Ogre Power,
Shield of Fire Protection,
and most importantly...
Magic Sword +1
Agnes flies down with her arms full of presents for everyone.
Boneclaw: I... have... you... now...
And the Wraith is frozen in place!
Agnes: Ok Billy, quick get over here!
Tommy: Great job, you guys! I knew you could do it!
Agnes gives Tommy the Magic Sword +1
It takes a few blows, but eventually, the Wraith dissolves in a mist.
Agnes: I almost feel bad for it.
Tommy: Dont. Wraiths cant be killed permanently. He will reform somewhere and cause trouble again. But not for awhile...
With cheers and hugs, the kids divide up the magic weapons and loot.
There are plenty of gold pieces, healing potions, and a raise dead scroll too.
But here is how the weapons were alloted:
Wand of Paralyze - Agnes gets to keep,
Elven Boots and Cloak - for Katie,
Gauntlets of Ogre Power - for Max,
Shield of Fire Protection - for Liam
and Tommy keeps the Magic Sword +1
Its doors have opened with its master's demise.
As tired as the kids are, they wont rest here even in the daylight.
Katie: The Barrow Downs... thats what this place is called. Dont worry Agnes, we will rest and sleep once we get to the Old Forest...
Agnes: Ha! I can sleep now... on my magical Broom! Broom of Flying, I command you to hover and follow the rest of the party... while I take a nap on you! (giggles)
Katie: You shouldnt use magic items all the time, who knows how many charges they have before they run out. But I think you can use it this time. You and Billy did a really good job in there! Im proud of you!
Agnes's blushing and smiling turns into snoring soon enough as the rest of the kids enviously watch her asleep on her floating broom.
Sad that the story is over? Dont be!
The adventure didnt end there.
Another multipost is coming soon as the story continues in the Old Forest!
