Time Lord #10 The Final Encounter -RoQIV

With fearless determination, the party marched onwards after locating the black key in the middle of the “B”, and reached the blackened door of the tenth Time Lord, which Gnarshm marked on his book of cartography with the letter “G”. The door was adorned with skulls, dripping with blood and emanated an essence of pure evil. With weapons drawn and spells at the ready, the elven thief Elvira inserted the last and final black key and opened the door. A cold icy frost drifted outwards sending a vile chill onto the adventurers.

Further into the lair the adventurers stepped, inch by inch as a feeling of dread overwhelmed the party until a wretched voice seeped into their brains.

“You have defeated the other nine lord’s but you will not beat me. Now, prepare to meet your maker and die!” the tenth Time Lord appeared out of the darkness with a staff of orcus, slamming the staff on the floor with a loud and enormous THUD.

The floor began to shake and crumble. Bits of the stone floor wasted away revealing a gaping pit into a hellish abyss below. Fire erupted sending flames outward and upward scorching the party whilst demons from the hell below reached towards the adventurers with bloodied claws.

The Time Lord sent shockwaves of lightning at the party. Elvira took the brunt of the attack and her skin lit afire and began to burn while the summoned demons took away the rest of her burning flesh into the depths below.

Sammy leapt into action slashing violently against the time lord with her blade but her hand was grasped by the evil lord and her blade was sent backwards piercing a hole through her armor and through to the other side of her now dying body. The time lord pushed her too, into the fiery abyss.

The remaining party fought back valiantly against the summoned asmodeus and demogorgons.

Iscreem pulled the stolen gem of meteors from his pocket. “Well, its now or never. Lets do this now! he shouted as he threw the gem towards the enemies. The gemstone shattered and blew a hole through the ceiling of the dungeon. Moments later the dungeon filled with stars and meteors which ricocheted throughout the dungeon, throwing a wild bombardment of starlike meteors onto the vile demons eliminating the cruel asmodeus.

“My God, it’s full of stars!” Iscreem shouted as the gem of meteors rocketed through and tore apart the demon’s evil flesh.

The rest of the party launched a full on attack against the Time Lord and the remaining demogorgons.

With the remaining demons laid waste, Crumm and the rest of the party focus their attacks on the final vile and last Time Lord.

Wounded and dying, the tenth Time Lord struggles profusely and manages one last attack against the party. The Time Lord grasped violently at the old gnome. With Greenhat’s throat clasped in the wretched Time Lord’s Hands, the evil lord threw the green hatted gnome into the endless fire scorched and hellish pit below.

Greenhat let out a final shout of defeat as he fell into the abyss, his voice seemed to eternally echo in Gnarshm’s mind as the old gnome fell into the Time Lord’s blackened void.

Gnarshm and Iscreem lunged at the Time Lord in unison, with Iscreem dealing the final blow against the tenth Time Lord.

With the blade of excalibur plunged deep into the the Time Lord’s belly, the wretched lord let out a fatal scream as his flesh disintegrated and fell to the ground as a heap of dust and ash and the staff that the time lord held fell to the floor in a clatter.

Iscreem was still in shock at having defeated the final Time Lord as he looked onto the remaining party members. It was finally over. The ten Time Lords have been defeated. The party gathered around the kobold warrior and expressed their sorrow over losing three of their adventuring companions to the evil Time Lord.

Ruby found a golden chest on the far end of the room which contained a large and valuable loot of gold and Iscreem picked up the staff of the fallen Time Lord.

The remaining party members made their way back to the castle, triumphant in their defeating of the ten Time Lord’s but in sorrow for having lost Greenhat, Sammy and Elvira to the Time Lord.

Iscreem let a tear fall from his eye. It was the first time that any of the party had seen him in a moment of true sorrow.

“Don’t feel too bad. The old gnome would have been proud of our accomplishment. We set out to defeat the ten Time Lord’s and that is exactly what we did.” Ruby said to try to comfort the kobold warrior.

Twiggy patted the kobold on the back. “We defeated a great evil, and you still have us. Life goes on. It is the way of things.” the elf wizard said.

“It can’t be over just yet, we never did get to see the royal wine cellars, did we? or go horseback riding.” Gnarshm asked.

“Here we go again.” Crumm mumbled.

Iscreem replied with a smile on his face. “Don’t worry Gnarshm, with the vast amount of gold that we looted from the Time Lords, you’d be able to buy a wine cellar of your own and fill it with as many bottles as you can fit into it. Now where is that tavern anyway? I’ve got some coins to spend now too.” the kobold said with a sly grin.

 

 

 

 

Time Lord #9 -RoQIV

Deep in the ninth time lord’s lair the party marched forward with weapons drawn. Iscreem swung about his mighty sword of excalibur in anticipation of battle. A gaggle of voices echoed through the dark corridor. The voices grow louder.

The time lord and his minions await.

“Who do you serve? Bow before me!” the time lord commanded.

“NEVER!” Iscreem shouted as he swung the mythical sword, cutting a deep wound into the time lord’s side.

The old gnome repelled the demon erinyes back to the hell in which they belong, with his trusty holy symbol.

Twiggy spoke the ancient power word of utter destruction. “KILL, KILL, KILL!” she chanted as a deathly force crept from out of her spellbook and leached onto the enormous fire giants choking and suffocating them viciously. The rest of the party leaped into action and hacked down the fire giants one by one until the last fell to the ground as a lifeless corpse.

“NO! rrrrRRRRAAAAAARRRGGGGHH!” the time lord’s temper raged in anger at the defeat of his minions and he charged at Elvira and proceeded to cut her down.

Crumm and Gnarshm rushed to Elvira’s defense, beating back the evil time lord. The lug of an ogre dealt the final blow to the time lord’s now decapitated head.

“Nine down, and one to go.” Iscreem said triumphantly.

 

Time Lord #8 -RoQIV

Iscreem stared at the flourescent orange door that stood before him. The door glowed intensely as did the orange key that the kobold clutched in his scrawny little hand. A feeling of dread overwhelmed him as he inserted the glowing key into the doors lock. Something evil lurked behind the door. Iscreem was sure of that. After turning the key, the kobold backed away from the door. “After you my spellcasting friends.” Iscreem said with a smirk on his face.

Greenhat also sensed the evil and stepped through the doorway, leading the party with his silver cross in his hand. Evil shadowy figures lurked about in the darkness. “Demons!” the gnome shouted. The gnome chanted a holy prayer and burned the demon’s flesh with his holy symbol.

Ruby read the runes from her spellbook, causing a rift in time, slowing enemies and giving the party extra rounds of attack. “Time is on our side now, evil Time Lord!” the hobbit sage shouted.

“Let the power of Mordenkais sword stab at thee!” Twiggy screamed, as the glowing blue enchanted sword of Mordenkais appeared from out of the darkness.

Iscreem took hold of the glowing sword and swung it mercilessly at the Time Lord, hacking and slicing the evil lord to shreds.

Sammy and Crumm took turns pummeling and thrashing the Time Lord, and Elvira lunged at him from behind with piercing daggers and raging fury.

Sammy took the last swing to finish off the evil time lord. “Another day, another death!” the elf said as she pierced her sword and stung the time lord through his heart, ending his miserable and wretched life.

From the vile corpse of the time lord, Iscreem pulled a ring off the evil lord’s finger and placed it onto his own.

An intense wave of strength overpowered the kobold. The ring disintegrated and left Iscreem with a newfound sense of strength.

Time Lord #7 – RoQIV

Elvira inserted a quartz key and unlocked the door to the seventh time lord’s lair. After a few steps forward, the party heard an evil laughter echo through the moldy stone passage, and then suddenly Crumm shouted.

“WAIT! I HAVE IDEA!” the ogre warrior said loudly and inarticulately.

“What? You never have an idea, Crumm.” Twiggy blurted out in a seemingly automatic response.

“It must be that Tome of Magi that you gave him to read.” Greenhat suggested.

“Well, what is it Crumm?” Iscreem asked.

“MAGIC USERS GO FIRST!” Crumm continued.

“What? Are you crazy! We’d get slaughtered up there!” Twiggy exclaimed.

Ruby nodded in agreement.

“Wait, that might actually be a good idea. It would give us spellcasters a chance at first dibs to give the old time lord a taste of his own medicine. Then after our spells are cast, Crumm and the rest of the group can charge the time lord and hack him down!” Greenhat stated.

The spellcasters thought it over and reluctantly agreed. The party regrouped in a magic users first formation.

As the party marched through the time lord’s lair, the deathly grasp of liches drew near and reached for the party.

Ruby and Greenhat instantly pulled their crosses and holy books and began reciting the prayer to exile the undead. Ruby began to worry. In between alternating prayer verses the hobbit warned. “The undead are coming near. They will drain us!”

“Focus on your spells, not the vile creatures!” Greenhat exclaimed upon finishing his prayer verse. A beam of light pierced the time lords lair through the stone ceiling from the daylight miles above the dungeon. The liches fall to the ground and burn to ashes.

Red dragons exchanged breath of fire with the magic user. Twiggy sent the flames backwards onto the dragons fighting fire with fire and disintegrating the dragons.

Crumm and Iscreem lead the charge and hack down the Time Lord to pieces. All fought valiantly to take down the seventh time lord.

Victory at last!

Time Lord #6

The party regrouped and descended to level 6. Gnarshm found the red key in a dark room to the south of the stairs. Elvira spotted more ancient elvish runes carved into an equally aged door and again attempted a translation.

“It appears to be some kind of warning about a teleporter. A sort of point of no return…or at least not returnable by normal means. No key, no go. It’s pretty vague, but we’ve found the red key, and we have the ring of worlds in case we get stuck somewhere so I think we’ll be safe.” Elvira said.

Iscreem was the first to step through the teleporter. An enormous gust of wind rushed at the kobold pulling him violently into the void, twisting and bending his body and soul until he passed through to the other side. The sheer power of the teleporter caught him off guard as he fell forward and collapsed onto the floor of a crimson colored corridor. A moment later, the rest of the party came crashing through the teleporter.

The crimson passages looped and twisted back and forth like a compressed snake. At the end of the twisting corridors, a large red door with a protruding keyhole appeared. Gnarshm quickly inserted the key, unlocking the sixth time lord’s lair.

The time lord’s lair was cold. Ice cold. A foggy mist reached at the party from within the lair. A heavy breathing was heard from deep inside the lair. With each passing breath, the passages got colder still. Crumm was nervous. He was overwhelmed with fear, and through the icy mist the head of a dragon appeared. Crumm panicked and turned to run, but Iscreem shouted. “Stand your ground you big chicken!” Iscreem’s courage was infectious. Crumm disregarded his fear and joined the assault against the dragons with the rest of the group.

The time lord and his dragons meet the party in battle.

Twiggy casts time stop, allowing the adventuring team additional hits against the time lord and his dragons. One by one the dragons fell.

The time lord is enraged. In his fury, he unleashes a wild attack slaying both Ruby and Elvira in a horrific dual killing. A sick bloodlust flared in the time lord’s eyes.

But in the end, Twiggy decimated the sixth time lord with a bolt of lightning. With the time lord defeated, the surviving party members searched for an exit to the time lords lair but found none. As forewarned in the ancient elvish runes, the way out was unreachable without the help of dimensional magic. Twiggy slipped the ring of worlds onto her fingers and teleported the party out of the time lord’s lair. The group made their way back towards the levels above .
