Session 34 - A Children's Story from Clown Poggytoes of House Branch
Children want a story of Magic, Heroes, Elves, and Demons hmmm? Well I have a good one for you future masters of House Branch.
Over a hundred years ago House Branch was under assault from a great evil. The Drow had returned to our world. The Dark Evil Ones had taken out the Good Elves and they wanted the Dwarf Stone. They kidnapped children to sacrifice. Some used to open demonic portals. Others of the Lost Children turned to hideous demonic creatures. They had plans to destroy this House Branch. But the gods looked kindly upon us and sent blessed heroes who fought for justice. Their names
Phelan Duncan (The Magi)
Khirr - Barbarian of the Iron Tooth Clan
Magic-User Cadman Kane (Sworn Sword of House Branch)
Auziwandilaz - The black magic-user
Valkomen Gimilzor (Paladin of House Branch)

Children of this group only Phelan Duncan the Magi and Valkomen Gimilzor the Paladin would make it out alive.
Three times did the group have to use the terrifying fireball. Every time it took some of their own down. Burnt to a crisp. Heroes had fallen.
The final battle. The group was weary from fighting. For Al Jezzer the Great Witch had a large stock of henchmen. Men of Zax and terrible Scaly Lizard Men she did employ. Along with a array of demons she would summon.
So tired and unable to go on the Party of Heroes made plans on what to do next. Then all of a sudden a mighty earthquake struck the temple. The Heroes knew the time to strike had come. The Temple was collapsing. Then by chance the Paladin Valkomen Gimilzor spotted the Evil Witch Al Jezzer and her minions fleeing. He confronted the Witch. He got one mighty blow on the Witch. Then her bodyguards came to her rescue. They held off the Paladin. Khirr the Great Barbarian of the Iron Tooth Clan then came in swinging at the Witch. Confronted with the might of the Party the Witch decided to flee. She used her magic to teleport away.
The Battle was not over. The screams from the children could still be heard. A great many of the children came from Khirr the Barbarians People. In a mad rush he charged down the stairs. Intent on saving the children no matter the cost.
Into the lowest room of that foul dungeon they went. It was the alter room. This was the place used for sacrifice and summoning demons. There the party found a Great Demon freshly summoned. Was it this that caused the Earthquake? Immediately the Barbarian and Paladin confronted the Demon Thing. Phelan Duncan the Magi and Cadman Kane the Magic User rushed over to a table filled with magical books and devices. The others held the demon off. By the Will of the Gods Phelan Duncan discovered it was the Altar of Evil that needed to be destroyed. After this revelation the Great Demon opened a hole to hell and escaped. However the day was not won yet. The children chained to the walls all turned into foul monsters.
Tremendously outnumbered our heroes fought. Before they all fell the Magic User Cadman Kane used his Wand of Wonder to take out all the Evil. Only two survived the blast.
With the Altar and Temple destroyed the survivors went back to House Branch.
