More swamps and a drowned city. Not to mention a black acid-spewing dragon and its pet tyrannosaur. Fun times.
In which we head off to the swamps to fight Rakshasa in pursuit of twin stars from a magical flail.
In which we successfully clear out the Temple of Death, recover the Eye of Varrien and discover our first portal.

We've travelled far to reach this place, crossed the treacherous dust plains with … Continue reading D&D Chronicles: Operation Skystone not going too well
