My Ruins of the Undercity campaign continues. The fighter Zareef was the sole survivor of the previous expedition into the Undercity, and has become a second level fighter. As recommended by the rulebook I’ve created a party of second level adventurers to accompany him on another expedition and given each of them a magic item.
Zareef has survived three expeditions into the Undercity and completed a week of training with a sword master in Cryptopolis. He now joins a party of experienced adventurers who have been exploring another part of the Undercity.
Arshad formerly worked as a clerk in the Temple of the Red Goddess. He is now an adventuring cleric. He wears a suit of magical banded armour (+1).
Arwa left her job as an apprentice fletcher to explore the Undercity. At 17 years of age she is the youngest member of the party, but she is strong and armed with a magical scimitar (+1).
A tailor turned sorceress, Haleema understands the languages of bugbears and wears a ring of Protection +1.
Formerly a cobbler, Thamra is now an illusionist. She understands the languages of bugbears and flinds and also wears a ring of Protection +1.
Once a leatherworker, Yusri is now an adventuring thief and claims to be an expert at finding and disarming the traps of the Undercity. He wears a suit of magical leather armour (+1).
In his previous expedition into the Undercity Zareef retrieved the Red Topaz Goddess, a holy relic, from a lair of vapourware rats. He returned the relic to Zoltar, a high priest of the Red Goddess, and was told that he and his companions could come to the Temple of the Red Goddess to be blessed before going on another adventure. Zareef takes the others to Zoltar who blesses the party.
Every member of the party has a +1 to hit for the duration of this adventure only.
Zareef then guides the others to the abandoned house near the Temple of the Red Goddess, where there is a stairway leading down into the Undercity.
