Here is my Haiku…..
Gundren is saved!
Squashed wolf, squashed King Grol.
One goblin ran away.

Doug Harrison
@kenny, what kind of Haiku is that? 4-5-6? You have committed literary blasphemy… how about the one below? You still get credit for the haiku. I just had to make it 5-7-5. :-)

Gundren is O.K.
Squashed wolf, King Grol and goblins
One goblin ran off

Kenny Parkinson

spring cleaning

cleaning up the redbrand hideout
found lots of stuff. weapons, treasures, junk, spell, potions, scrolls

found an interesting letter from the Black Spider

Mosk,
The situation has gotten much worse: I am unable to locate the Forge of Spells, these halls are much more hostile than I ever anticipated, and Grol is being stubborn with the map and the Dwarf. The Dwarfs brother got too nosey and he had to be terminated thus rendering him useless as a bargaining device. This dire situation is only compounded by the news that the Redbrands no longer function. Make one final terror on the sorry saps and prepare your bugs to move. On my next contact I will either request assistance here finding the Forge or reinforcement at Cragmaw Castle. Vyerith has one final chance before I let my little spiders have their fun with her. You know personally how unpleasant that can be.
We will prevail, I can feel the power of The Forge beckoning me. It won’t be long.
:black_spider:
P.S. Destroy that goblin liability you keep caged up. Torturing the innocent is a fine art of terror not a recreational past time. Disgraceful.

Flamerule 12, 1486 DR

the zombie waves continue as the party puts their heads together to solve this puzzle. after some controlled tests to confirm the pattern they began systematically selecting zombies to throw into the flames. Teancum attempts to cross a rickety bridge that breaks sending him downward. He attempts a leap away from the ooz but rolls a 1 and falls inside. The ooz starts to suck teancum downward and it goes dark. the zombie hoard prevents the party from getting to teancum to help. teancum takes acid damage and drops to 1 hp. they finally are able to toggle all the magical torches on and the zombie waves stop and the ooz starts to withdraw. Anvil frantically tries to find Teancums body but to no avail. Teancum is no where to be found

on the plus side the hideout was cleared. no more threats seem to be apparent in here.

the party suggested after this fight they would take a long rest. Anvil called glasstaffs bed.

you find a letter amongst all the junk scattered about the place

Back to the Redbrand Hideout the party finds all the rooms torn apart and trashed. There is a quick moment where you see a drow wizard in Glasstaffs room and he seems to teleport away in a flash. Back in the large room with the crevasse you find a mad wizard playing with Necromantic magic who seems have started some sort of zombie making machine. Zombies are being cut down left and right while 4 tiles in the room are toggling some flamethrowers. Will the party ever get the machine to stop? or will they grind their way to level 20 in this room?
