Reign of Madness

Acute Delirium

I remember that Lessah was telling us how she had been in the Sleeping Spell Inn one night and she drank a bunch of beholders under the table. I’m not sure if that is true or not but we were all hanging around in the 12 with our pal Grimm when we spotted a guy sitting on a bench crying. No one was paying any attention to him and I felt sorry for him so I asked him what his major malfunction was. He just kept crying and waving his hands around in the general direction of the Inn sobbing something about his girlfriend and losing some scepter and opening a portal and I think she was mad at him about it. Something like that anyway. I patted him on the head and told him not to worry about it (actually I wanted to get a look at this scepter) and we all went and piled into the Inn. There weren’t any beholders in there, just a big mindflayer and a few minions. What happened next…. well I’m not exactly sure any of it really happened but I think we built an airship out of beds and bookcases, jumped into a giant beholders mouth (I guess there were beholders after all) and ended up retrieving said scepter. Well, Lessah did and then she gave it back to the bad guy. I really wasn’t looking forward to telling the poor guy about that but stuff happens.

The Sane Asylum

Yeah, I’m not so sure about this one either. I saw Durk. Night and Day were flesh renderers. We saved Fred and killed Nurse Ratchett. We weren’t there very long



The Lord of Stone

We went to Khyber. Why? To ask for help from the lord of stone I think we spend a lot of time asking for help from the oddest places). For those who don’t know, it’s very dark in Khyber. Lots of things wanted to kill us and this guy had a bunch of minion guarding doors on the way to him. I’m not sure who’s idea it was but we decided to collect some gems we found along the way and then give them to him like a bribe I guess but I’m pretty sure he never got them because Sahba said she was going to keep them for herself. When we finally got to him he said he would only help us if we passed some tests which basically amounted to killing more of his minions. Easy peasy.



The Lord of Eyes

Belashyrra is the Lord of Eyes. Remember when I said that Lessah gave the scepter back to the bad guy? This is who she gave it to. This guys diggs had the coolest elevators ever! We traveled up and down through the whole place taking down the beam barriers until we found him. Plus, the Lord of Stone and his little army actually did show up and help us! I never trust those dudes to come through.

I LOVED THIS QUEST CHAIN!  And now that I know what to do with the altar, I am very much on board with upgrading my parasitic breastplate!
