Heroes Rise, one hundred ninetieth entry: Going Underground

Welcome, brave adventurers…

… to the one hundred ninetieth entry into our chronicle, recorded on Saturday, November 20th, and released Wednesday, November 24th over at heroesrisepodcast.com.

In this week’s Adventurer’s Pack, Ostron has an epic quest for us.

After that we take a Long Rest to figure out what’s going on down in the Underdark; before finally heading over to the Scrying Pool to see what you have to say.

Community Questions
What experience do you have with the Underdark? Have you descended in by accident and run afoul of wandering Duergar? Did you try to infiltrate a Drow city, and/or get out of one? Did you venture way down to find the mind-eating creatures and living fungus colonies? Are you, in fact, still lost down there and need some help?

    I ran a 1 1/2 year long Out of the Abyss Campaign with some homebrew elements. We all enjoyed it very much. Memorable parts were a wholly unnecessary (optional sidetrack) encounter in an Aboleth´s Lair, where the party boldly dove down and wanted to battle it under water, only to realize that unconcious party members would quickly drown and that they wouldn´t stand a chance against the Aboleth and its Kuo-Toa minions. After fleeing, one PC had to spend weeks being sprayed over with water to avoid suffocating because of the Aboleth´s Mucous Cloud Feature.
    When they encountered a Purple Worm in the Worm Nursery they ran after seeing it devouring 3 NPCs…
    The final battle in Menzoberranzan was epic: After defeating Demogorgon, who had been weakened by his previous encounter with Orcus, they had to battle Orcus with the help of their Yugoloth mercenaries. The Demon Prince of Undeath had his undead minions and the Dragonborn Fighter PC who had switched sides (long before actually and the party knew more or less), having turned into a follower of Orcus riding a Dracolich. After defeating Orcus, the Dragonborn went PVP against the 3 last standing PCs with the Wand of Orcus.
    It was the most epic and clilmatic ending (fight) I ever DMed.

    Thanks for the entertaining show!
