Greyhawk campaign but never shared, so here's another couple of sessions. This one wraps up Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh and moves on to some spinoff adventures I added. More next week.
Silence of the Gnolls
They went back to town, sold some stuff, stashed some money at the Temple of Bralm, and decided to lure the smugglers in and... whatever. Stop them or something. They used a magical disguise and a less magical one made by skinning one of the gnoll heads. They managed to get aboard the Sea Ghost without incident and see the captain. After taking out both the captain and his wizard buddy, they said they were taking over the ship and offered the #2 spot to the former bosun. Everybody went along.
The Rainbow Bridge
The party wanted to investigate the place where Sanbalet had been meeting other weevils, so they sailed off in the Sea Ghost to Dunwater, another coastal town between Saltmarsh and the Javan River. Anton wasn't feeling well, so he stuck around in Saltmarsh. Tuckras worked on his sailing skills and got to know the pirates better. It wasn't a long trip.
The trading camp at the mouth of the Dunwater River had been ransacked. There were dead weevils, dead lizard men, dead humans, and debris. There were tracks heading off to the north, into to Hool Marshes. The road ran along a narrow causeway. Eventually they came to a bridge along over a gap in the causeway. Blocking the bridge in an arch shape, they found a transparent gelatinous creature which attacked them when they got close. During the fight, it managed to "swallow" Jinso, but he survived.
The trail ended at a small castle, more a guardhouse, really with a sludgy moat around it. The building was in ruins except for a fortified tower in the back. They poked around the courtyard, then decided to investigate a crumbly tower by the entrance before moving on to the solid building. The ruined tower was full of creepy shadows and whispering voices, and a spider-like creature that could teleport through the shadows.
The next room had a couple of carrion crawlers that attacked them from the walls and ceiling. Beyond, they found an ominous stairway.
