Killing the denizens of the Plane of Elemental Power got the attention of their master, the Prime Demon. He offers us a choice, kind-of, we can go retrieve an ancient artifact for him, or we can die…
-Uh… Give us a minute…
The Prime Demon frowns as we get in circle and debate together.
-Yeah, but I want to kill demons, says the Brute.
-I want to help with that, I say.
-But seriously, demons, again?
-Give me your answer NOW! booms the Prime Demon.
-We choose to die? err, not exactly what I meant…
(set difficulty: medium)
So yeah, more demons, even if we’re sick to death of fighting them, but the Brute is really close to accomplishing his Life Goal so we endure…
First room isn’t impressive, with only a Frost and a Sun. Those 2 dead, I open the left door, revealing 2 Wind and 2 Night. The Cragheart opens the other – 2 Earth and 2 Flame in the right. I joyfully hurl Fire Orbs at the demons near me and then we regroup in the first room. The Mindthief and Brute deal with the left while I support the Cragheart with the right.
We’re under pressure, dealing with 8 demons simultaneously, but things aren’t that bad. Except that the Brute tries and tries to finish a Night Demon and it takes an awfully long time before he finally succeeds. I and the Mindthief both had to heal him, as he was really battered.
The two hallways cleared, we got further in the Prime Demon’s abode. The Brute finds His Evilness in a room with a strange altar. The Prime Demon boasts of his invincibility, yada yada yada, but hey, we have some sort of intuition (man, this game sucks at roleplay) that he’s somehow linked with the altar.
You may be invincible but your stupid altar ain’t!
There’s a twist though, the altar changes location, jumping around clockwise and summoning demons at the same time. Not too inconvenient, as we had cleared the place prior to this. The Brute have the Prime Demon on his back, and that jerk hits hard! So we bash the altar as much we can, except the Cragheart who’s too slow, too far, and has his eyes on the treasure anyway.
The Brute and Mindthief get exhausted but the altar is almost destroyed. I’m in good shape but can’t finish the altar as it jumps too far from me. But the Cragheart, sporting a new piece of jewelry, is right there to finish the damn thing, dissolving the Prime Demon at the same time.
- The Brute will leave us, the first to accomplish his Life Goal
- Guillaume, the Brute’s player was truly frustrated by his lack of damage output
- We will have the Elementalist as a new recruit, that’s nice!
- The treasure, a Dark Pendant, seems okayish
- We got a LOT of gold for finishing this scenario but that still feels a little underwhelming
