Mask extreme nausea in the morning of the matriarch dungeon dutchess

The others keep their eyes on the food and eat. It wouldn’t be wise to get caught in the middle. Suddenly a queasiness washes over them, nausea surging in and out. Then their eyesight blurs and one by one they pass extreme nausea in the morning out, except for alvra and quarra, who are less troubled by what’s ailing them. The high priestess gets up, indignation and temper ravaging her face.

But the drow cook seems to have sneaked out. Quarra stalks the room and strikes down the serving slave, beating him to death in pure rage. Suddenly a loud shrieking erupts from the direction of the extreme nausea in the morning women’s rooms. The sound is ear piercing. The fighter lifts his head, struggling against the effects of the drugs, and notices how his brother and youngest sister are gaining extreme nausea in the morning consciousness again. Lilith is still totally knocked-out. Quarra sinks into a trance and starts praying to their extreme nausea in the morning deity lolth. Slowly a greenish glow appears, which envelops her hands. With the aid of the spider queen, she heals her sisters from the poison. Jharrath has to manage on his own, the weak male is unworthy of her blessing.

She then turns to check her sister’s room, which has been devastated. Darts are scattered on the floor, and in the middle lies a small green snake, chopped in half. Lilith must have kept a pet snake, she won’t be pleased when she finds out, phaedra thinks. A trail of blood leads from the room into the extreme nausea in the morning hallway. Seems both traps worked properly, but they didn’t stop the intruder from entering.

The scout follows the blood trail towards the throne room, its doors wide open. She quickly looks inside and assesses the situation. Two minotaurs are stalking around. Seems they saw something, or someone, enter but can’t find the intruder. He or she has vanished into the shadows. Phaedra orders the creatures to guard the door – the only way out – and listens carefully until she hears shuffling to the right extreme nausea in the morning side of the room. It is dark. There are many places to hide.

To alvra’s amazement and horror, the treasury is deserted. Where are the honor guards?! When he sees two house guards patrolling, he orders one to stand in front of the treasury extreme nausea in the morning door, and sends the other to quarra to report the missing extreme nausea in the morning treasury guards. But then amalika strolls in, alluring as ever. She seems happy to see him again… until she hears what happened. She orders alvra to open the door, which is not locked. Amalika checks the treasury and a cold rage grips her: the mask of the matriarch. It is gone!

All frivolity has vanished. The fighter knows better than to argue and hurries back extreme nausea in the morning to alert his eldest sister himself. On his way down, he runs into jharrath. The wizard doesn’t look well, the poison still active in his body. Quickly alvra fills jharrath in on the latest developments. The wizard waves his brother onward and then turns around extreme nausea in the morning to head for the throne room to aid phaedra.

The scout, one of the minotaurs safely blocking the door, loads her hand-crossbow and grabs an object from her backpack. By now she hears shuffling and panting from the dark, and it’s coming closer. Quickly she shields her eyes and then throws a flash extreme nausea in the morning pellet in the direction of the sounds. The intruder cries out in anger and agony. When phaedra tentatively opens her eyes, she sees a male drow, dressed in black, who looks wounded. The dart trap must have been aimed well.

As the other minotaur moves in to obey, the man in the black cape suddenly lunges at phaedra. He wields his weapons expertly and wounds the female with extreme nausea in the morning his dagger, after which he again crouches into a defensive position. The fishy smell that comes from her wounds tells phaedra extreme nausea in the morning that she has been poisoned, again. She feels a rigidity settling in her joints.

She yells, but again the drow breaks free. Jharrath casts a spell that slows him down, but only a little. The assassin lunges towards the wizard and his rapier pierces extreme nausea in the morning jharrath’s shoulder. Again he casts a spell and suddenly a huge web extreme nausea in the morning appears, catching them all. Phaedra, alert as ever, delivers a blow to the intruder’s head. For a moment no one moves, and then the drow male’s eyes roll slowly backwards.

The chest is still standing in the water, innocently ignoring the intruders. When phaedra is unable to open it, alvra hits the rusty lock with great force and splits extreme nausea in the morning it in half. In the chest the scout finds a couple of potions, all in a bad state, but at the bottom she discovers two massive diamonds. The stones find a safe nest in her backpack.

On the left, one door is still unexplored. Like the skinkite lair before, its floor tilts upwards. On the other side of the room a seething mass extreme nausea in the morning of fungus. Jharrath recognizes the substance as a magically enhanced flesh eating extreme nausea in the morning organism. The only materials it can’t digest are stone and diamond. In the middle of the mass a pearl is embedded, pulsating and beckoning. At first sight not the obvious place to hide the extreme nausea in the morning mask, so they pull the door shut again.

The wizard walks towards the right corridor and opens the extreme nausea in the morning top door. It is filled with broken alchemy equipment. The scout peeps around the corner too, in search of something useful, but all she sees are shards of potion bottles. Both sisters use the moment of peace to heal themselves. Then lilith, with the fighter on her heels, pushes against the door of the middle chamber. There seems to be a little resistance, but soon she manages to open it. The cleric comes face-to-face with a stone statue of a gargoyle, that spits water into a basin, overflowing it and the whole room. Nothing seems to be moving.

Jharrath opens the last door on the right. Inside only heaps of skeletons; in the back two cabinets against the wall. After a suspicious glance at the bones, he shuts the door again. Meanwhile the cleric, eager to be done with the quest, orders alvra to open the biggest door, the one opposite the entrance. With a screech, it opens its maw and reveals a short stone staircase, leading upwards. The fighter pushes with all his might and manages to extreme nausea in the morning open the door further.

Phaedra tries to trip the giant, while lilith calls upon the powers of the spider queen extreme nausea in the morning to rebuke the undead creature, but both fail. Seems lolth doesn’t respond. The ettin sways his club towards the praying cleric and extreme nausea in the morning hits her hard. Lilith staggers backwards to heal herself again. A kelgore’s firebolt comes whizzing through the fray. Molten lava covers the beast and alvra -strategically positioned in the top room on the right – steps into the corridor to attack. His doublesided sword damages the skeleton even further. Time to call in an earth elemental. The summoned creature obedient hurls itself at the ettin and extreme nausea in the morning starts pummeling its bones. Clashes and groans echo through the dungeon during the mass extreme nausea in the morning fight. The cleric attacks vigorously with her flail and delivers the extreme nausea in the morning last blow. Finally the ettin skeleton falls apart, nothing else remaining but a heap of bones. From a safe distance phaedra quickly checks the room for extreme nausea in the morning other rising skeletons, but all is quiet again. They decide to leave the room as it is, no checking the cabinets!

The scout heads towards the stairs and listens carefully. Nothing, so she silently moves up the stairs. A coffin! When she enters the chamber, the cover of the coffin starts to move and three extreme nausea in the morning more tomb motes appear from the dark. Time to pull back! Phaedra shoots a bolt at the lightning fast creatures and extreme nausea in the morning dashes down again, closely followed by the motes. And there is the cleric in her shiny armor, just waiting to be bitten. Nausea threatens to overpower her and she tries to shake extreme nausea in the morning off the effect. Alvra feels their teeth too. They all attack: spiked chain, sword, flail and electric bolt whiz through the air.

The drow woman walks towards alvra and touches him with extreme nausea in the morning her chill hands. The fighter suddenly feels weak, his strength seeping from him. ‘begone’, she says. But alvra, not planning on retreating any time soon, attacks the necromancer with his sword. She doesn’t particularly seem to like that. The necromancer hisses, again touches his shoulder and then moves back into the extreme nausea in the morning vault. Alvra chases her. The necromancer fails to hit the fighter a third time extreme nausea in the morning and he manages to overrun her, ending up in the vault.

Meanwhile the necromancer glides towards her coffin and makes a extreme nausea in the morning stand, facing the fighter. She doesn’t seem to do anything. Alvra walks forward, straight onto a circle, glowing with runes. This gliph saps even more of his strength, but he manages to continue and attacks the undead creature. She fights back, casting a spell, whereupon three green glowing balls shoot from her hands, straight into alvra. Again he whirls his two-bladed sword and injures the creature. Phaedra stalks closer and helps her elder brother to attack extreme nausea in the morning the necromancer. With a swing of her spiked chain, she kills it.

In the coffin they find a golden bracelet and earrings, plus an evil necromancy spell book. On the woman’s body a pearl necklace and two rings, all of them very expensive. Behind the coffin is an armor stand. Phaedra discovers a spidersilk armor, a magic flail, gold coins and a pouch. In it is an obsidian mask with eight straps. The mask of the matriarch! The wizard feels a red evil aura coming from the extreme nausea in the morning mask, so phaedra wraps it carefully in the spidersilk armor. The cleric moves forward and takes the package from her extreme nausea in the morning younger sister. I will take that mask now. You may have the spider silk armor later.

On their way back to the xaniqos mansion, a group of ghouls moves in to attack the siblings, but lilith – her confidence restored by the discovery of the mask of extreme nausea in the morning the matriarch – rebukes them and sends them on their way. At home, amalika and quarra are waiting for them, eager to hear the news. They are both very pleased when they hear the mask extreme nausea in the morning has been retrieved. Amalika seems especially excited and purrs to the fighter that extreme nausea in the morning she might be needing his services later on. Quarra sends the mask of the matriarch to the treasury, to be guarded on penalty of death.

In the evening, just before the matron mother will leave for the council extreme nausea in the morning of the eight ruling houses, our four brave drow are summoned to their mother’s private quarters. Dressed in a robe of spider silk, thandysha does not even bother to ask after vorn’s fate. Since taldinyon is also present, the youngsters presume she knows about vorn’s defeat. Two impressive minotaur impassively guard the door. Security is very high in house xaniqos tonight, and mother thandysha reminds her children of their house insignia’s.

The matron mother then accepts the letters of her children extreme nausea in the morning with their choice for a possible alliance with one of extreme nausea in the morning the ruling houses. After reading the notes, she tells them they have named two alternatives, which she will keep in mind when making her final extreme nausea in the morning decision. Thandysha thanks them for their opinion and sends phaedra, lilith and the brothers to their chambers to get some extreme nausea in the morning rest. They have to be ready to be called upon though.

The hours pass and the attentive drow enjoy a good extreme nausea in the morning evening meal, separate from the main guard. Rumors already buzz through the mansion when quarra sends for extreme nausea in the morning them: cleric amalika has arrived with news from the council. House xaniqos has been accepted as eighth house! Only for their ears though, she tells them that mother thandysha has talked to matron extreme nausea in the morning mother sereska of the house of vae, who is quite interested in a coalition but can not extreme nausea in the morning see the benefits… yet. The other option was house godeep, and matron mother siadef is ready to return thandysha’s favor, though on one condition. House xaniqos has to prove itself worthy by obtaining a extreme nausea in the morning special artifact: the mask of the matriarch. This mask used to belong to one of the lower extreme nausea in the morning old noble houses and has been lost from sight. The mask of the matriarch has the powerful ability to extreme nausea in the morning make others cower in fear.

Cleric amalika asks the four xaniqos siblings if they are extreme nausea in the morning up to the task of retrieving this mask in the extreme nausea in the morning ghetto of the dead (situated next to the ghetto of outcasts). As one they raise their chins and lilith replies with extreme nausea in the morning a definite yes. When she asks for specifics, amalika tells her the mask is made of obsidian and extreme nausea in the morning bears resemblance to the face of a female drow. The mask of the matriarch is thought to be buried extreme nausea in the morning underneath the house of nuchar. Strange necromancy experiments have taken place in that house, which is now totally obliterated.

The ghetto of the dead, also called the necropolis, is the home of necromancers, vampires, ghouls and undead. Long ago, the ghetto was a traditional place of the dead, known for its mausoleums, cemeteries and tombs. There are eight big obelisks at the necropolis square, one for each of the ruling houses. Most drow avoid the district, venturing into the ghetto only when they must dispose of extreme nausea in the morning mortal remains. Once the mourners depart, the hungry undead descend to feast upon the corpses.
