At JohnM’s prompting, Ice took the left route. A massive cave-in had occurred in the past but someone had cleared a path toward the east. The Bender’s had to move single file to walk along the path but it widened back out after 10 or 15 feet. The cavern went back to the south opening up into a rather large area that seemed empty at first but then the group saw motion directly south of them and really not that far away, maybe 15 feet from Ice. Oozing its way around stalagmites and sometimes dividing itself around a stalagmite and then coming back together was thick pool of red slime.
“Huh?” was all Ice could say as he saw what can only be described as ‘evil strawberry Jell-O’. Rolling his eyes, the knight unceremoniously dumped Splug onto the floor, drew his sword and moved towards the murderous dessert. The knight’s sword slashed downwards, but the blow was easily dodged by the slime-thing.
“Great,” Ice muttered. "Looks like I’m in for more trouble again… "
Bex was a little perturbed by slime that could dodge such a well-placed hit… so he decided to see what a Ray Of Frost could do to it. A whopping one point of damage, woo hoo!
JohnM took a step back yelling, "Run away!” He was thinking the group was going to need their firepower for the necro dude intent on ruling this plane.
Linora backed up with JohnM. “My spells are meant for creatures with arms and legs,” she said in explanation. She was ready with her staff but seemed to shake her head after watching the slime split apart to avoid the knight’s sword.
The Pink Slime (Def 18) seemed to gather in on itself before exploding toward Ice. The slime was completely deflected upward, splattering in a shower, which came back together once the globs of slime were back on the ground.
JohnE says, “Fuck this! I’m getting the hell outta here.” If Splug is not up and moving, he grabs him by the back of the neck and runs for the East(Can always throw him at the slime to slow it down if it comes to that..Assuming of course that there is an east to run for?
;;; The slime was in a dead end so you can retreat.
CB wasn’t going to argue with anyone on the point and backed away from the cavern.
Mark does his best French impression and runs away.
;;; Roll initiative to be stored for next encounter.
