Upset that his breakfast was ruined, Lambeth stomped into the kitchen followed by Mortelis Bloodbough and Robert Schalmer
Inside the kitchen they found Felix- Halfling Chef, who when challenged, started to run. But with little consideration to the carefully planned chase scene that was to follow, Lambeth convinced Felix- Halfling Chef that he already knew about the skeletons in his closet and would expose him. Realising the game was up, Felix gave in and spilled the beans. After an explanation that was perhaps a little too graphic, Felix told the party that he had been approached by the radiant Nicole Faust who used her charms on him. Lambeth suspected that the woman had used magic to bewitch him.
Felix said that Faust persuaded him to poison the party’s breakfast and then sneak in and steal the bell clapper. Unfortunately, although the poison was potent, the chef loved his food and faltered when spiking the breakfast and did not apply the full dose.
The party set a trap, asking Felix- Halfling Chef to tell Nicole Faust the plan had been a success and to deliver the item to her.
The party waited for Faust to collect the box containing the clapper and followed her to Koch’s restaurant.
Daith Sharpeye finally lived up to his name and found a secret door in the wine cellar of Kochs. Lambeth, who was now chinking pleasantly as he moved, picked the lock and opened the secret entrance revealing a terrible underground cult lair.
Daith Sharpeye made a spectacular shot, throwing a bottle of spirits into a sconce in the center of the temple, covering Nicole Faust and nearby cultists in sticky fire.
Lambeth used his sling and sent a stone into Nicole Faust’s face, shattering her button nose.
Mortelis Bloodbough whirled through the room, dancing towards Nicole Faust, thrusting his spear into her mouth, severing her jaw and sending her to a hideous smiling death.
Meanwhile the cultists opened a cage to release the Chaos Spawn which immediately used its new-found freedom to attack its captors.
The cult leader tried to entrap Mortelis Bloodbough with magic, but the elf just managed to resist.
Robert Schalmer charged into the center of the temple, protected by Myrmidia as he engaged multiple foes. The cultists used underhand tactics against him, at one point stabbing him in the testicles, but Robert Schalmer stood strong.
Barlin “Grimbane” Duraksson’s legs finally brought him to the battle and he took to one flank, engaging a cult mutant in a savage hand to hand dual to the death. Meawhile, Daith Sharpeye stepped past Barlin “Grimbane” Duraksson and trained his bow on the slavering chaos beast which was now unfettered.
A mutant got fed up with trying to hit Lambeth who had run off to hide behind a pillar.
Mortelis Bloodbough took revenge on the Cult Leader and attacked him with Tempest’s fury, cutting him down in one blow.
With a large fight raging in the center of the temple, Robert Schalmer held true and was joined by Mortelis Bloodbough who’s agile dance brought him across the battlefield.
The chaos beast managed to reach Mortelis Bloodbough despite several mortal arrow strikes from Daith Sharpeye. The beast’s sharp fangs missed their target and Slaanesh unleashed terrible fury upon the beast and it exploded, sending ooze and sinew across the lair.
A smart slingshot from Lambeth downed the mutant who was attacking Barlin “Grimbane” Duraksson and Barlin “Grimbane” Duraksson went across to Daith Sharpeye to give him a piece of his mind.
With the beast dead, the remaining mutants were soon dispatched.
It was a clean fight for the heroes, who took only minor damage to their bodies and souls.
