We descended the stairs, I and my strange companions. A warrior-triton. A warforged healer. A rather talkative paladin.

They were odd, yet oddly comforting. I could sense hardened resolve, unshakable bravery, and foolish pride. Fellow adventurers.

The next floor held doors in each direction. The shadowy rogue – some elf blood in her, no doubt, crept towards the west, where we heard a woman screaming for her babies. The concerned paladin wasn’t far behind.

The door was destroyed. Peeking in we saw a winged demon carrying a large fork and hurling balls of flame at some trees and shrubs. One of the trees had the face of a person, and was sobbing in anguish.

Normally I wouldn’t care about a damn tree. But my hands instantly went to my crossbows as I laid eyes on the demon. Adrenaline coursed through my body like a raging fire as I cast a protective ward.

The paladin, Scarlet, was trying to speak to the demon. I couldn’t help but grin when it snarled back. I materialized from the shadows, took aim, and peppered its body full of bolts.

This may be a strange place, but this feeling was all too familiar.

After our rude awakening and subsequent battle in a strange tower, our party descended the stairs. We were told by the disembodied voices who had sent us here to seek out the “bellboys” to unlock this tower and escape.

With solid stealth scores and darkvision, Kethra and Kaelan scouted the second floor, which held four doors in the cardinal directions. The western door was broken, however, and peering inside we could see a demon burning a bunch of trees, and the sound of a screaming woman.

Kethra was more that willing to leave this room behind, but Kaelan can’t leave a demon un-destroyed (literally his flaw), and Scarlet was concerned about the tree-woman screaming about her babies. She ran in to talk to the demons while the rest of us prepared for inevitable fight.

D&D

The pair of winged demons hurled fire bolts and swooped in to attack with their giant forks and infernal tails. We engaged them directly, Scarlet churning out Divine Smites, TIM healing Kaelan of a nasty infernal wound, and everyone putting out incredible amounts of damage.

Finally the demons lie dead. TIM had used Create Water to save the burning trees, and the grateful treant rewarded us with a pair of seeds that provided the Tree Stride spell. We asked her about the tower and the bellboys, but her knowledge was limited.

She did know about the other rooms on this floor, however. Each held a different biome. Hers was a forest, the north was a desert, the east a jungle, and the south “had all the tentacles.”

After a short rest we returned to the central area, and heard ringing coming from the east. Would bellboys make a ringing sound? Kethra carefully nudged the door open and found a literal anthropomorphic bell figure being harassed by some small flying lizards. I do believe we found our bellboy!
