    Alrighty then, done a sweep of the room with Magic Vision (TM). I doubt I'll be back on a computer again later, so if somebody else could take over as and when it's necessary. My prepared spells (including used spells, these will be struck out) are as follows:

    Spoiler
    Show
    Spells, spells, spells:

    Level 0 - Dancing Lights, Ghost Sound, Prestidigitation, Ray of Frost

    Level 1 - Windy Escape x1, Silent Image x1 (One converted into a Detect Secret Doors spell), Vanish x1, Colour Spray x1

    Level 2 - Minor Image x1, Mirror Image x1, Gust of Wind x1, Hypnotic Pattern x1

    Level 3 - Invisibility Sphere x1, Lightning Bolt x1 (Converted to Clairvoyance), Displacement x1


    Woo, max damage for the wand!

    With that roll, Quint realizes that these are Verderous Oozes. They are likely immune to any sort of illusion magic that relies on sight, have no real minds to influence, and cannot be polymorphed.

    Crucially, he remembers that they are not only immune to piercing and slashing damage, but acid and fire as well.

    Also, here's the map to the Horn of Abaddon, Level One. All the chambers are labelled.

    The prison and cage, notably, connect up to the currently disabled pit trap in the entrance to level 2. The cage itself is currently busted up, but with repair to it and the trap, anyone who tries getting in the second level would fall straight into a prison cell. Which could concievably be fitted with either spikes or an acid bath, if you're not interested in living captives.

    If you are, it's conveniently adjacent to the torture chamber.

    The map of the second level will be completed as soon as I can get it done.

    Dear god I think we are really really screwed against these ooze lol Between all our our spell lists these buggers are immune to everything we can throw at them.... well hopefully they are not immune to strength drain and maybe our gracious DM will allow us to be creative in doing damage... maybe take a penalty to attack to hit them with a flat of the blade like an improvised club? Thankfully we have a gun mage, hooray for bludgeoning bullets!

    Kind of figured you couldn't fool an ooze with an illusion, immune to fire is going to be fun though. Don't tell me that none of you prepared magic missile?

    Thinking about it, can we find a pit or something to temporarily trap them in? I'd prefer not to be the one to be dealing all the damage while it slowly munches through us.

    I always encourage bizzare and creative ideas. In terms of containing and/or avoiding them, well... Here's a tip. Bull rush. Schtein has mostly disposable minions, and the oozes got in through a gap in the wall in the room behind them. Said room is quite high off the ground.

    I won't often offer such tips, but in this case, the oozes have an advantage since the mission book was written with a more balanced party in mind.

    Hrmm, is my knowledge check sufficient to know what these particular Oozes would consider to be their most appealing meal, whether they're aware that they're taking damage and how they sense food? Specifically, would I be able to draw them out of the crack they climbed out from via. the use of Ghost Sound to make it sound like there was an easier meal out there?

    With my spells I think I'd have an easier time single-handedly killing that tree than fighting theese oozes. Anyway, my first spell of the day and it's utterly wasted.

    They eat just about anything, with a preference for small mammals. They're certainly aware of damage, and they hunt via, effectively, heat and motion. Fire might temporarily confuse them, and if your illusions can produce a tactile element, that would also work to lure them away.

    If sound is involved as well as motion/rudimentary sight then could I use a Minor Image to create, say, a number of rodents scampering about outside the crack to get them to move back that way? Or would the sound be completely lost on them?

    It might well work, though at present they are rather more interested in the larger mammels they can detect nearby. Namely, you lot.

    Alternately, to prevent this from dragging out too long and to get the game back on track, I ran some numbers. Assuming Schtein's bodyguards pick up makeshift clubs or something, they can bludgeon the oozes to death eventually. One of them would be destroyed and another reduced to all of 7hp, and Quint would have to use another eight charges on his wand of magic missile, but that'd about do it.

    Would that be acceptable, since it would allow you to get back on with exploring the temple and finding your way to the Sanctum?

    It'd suit me fine, whether Schtein is willing to let his minions take that kind of a beating is up to him of course. I just figured the Ooze's would have a self-preservation instinct which, were we to inflict enough damage, would lead them to leaving in search of easier prey (provided by a minor image) allowing reduced damage to our party.

    I think you aren't accouting for Strength damage.... his minions would not take as much damage as the oozes strength went down due to their attacks being worse. I can also bolster their hp every round so they don't lose their actual HP...

    And... congratulations, you've found the secret staircase. It ascends straight through the columns on the first and second floors and emerges on the third floor of the Temple.

    Now, would you like to go straight on up, or would you like to wait and possibly refresh spells?
