The party met up with Willow (a Sentinel of Order) and were introduced to his friend Armeo, a member of the Seekers. After some discussion, they decided to infiltrate the sewers below Farmenton and help some of the citizens get out while finding ways to undermine the Sons of the Beast above. They had one last night in Az before heading out in the morning. Armeo would join them in their mission.
Crawling through the sewers, the party found a small band of degenerating humans, feasting on the flesh of dead humans and humanoids. They were led by “Pappy,” a shit-slinging evil man. None of them could be considered really human anymore, and Pappy demoralized and immobilized while his cannibalistic followers crept forward, biting and slashing at what they thought might be “meat.”
Captured, Pappy warned them the “beware the worm” before Rhio slit his throat.
Further down in the tunnels, there was indeed a “worm,” a giant carrion crawler with lashing tentacles that struck and pulled its victims towards it. Ginni tried pushing and pulling it around, but mobility, with its great reach, was in short supply. Eventually, the party surrounded the vile beast and thrashed it until Rhio struck a fatal blow. In its death throes, it sprayed them all with a sickly orange-yellow ichor. Ginni quickly patted them all down with her cleanliness spell, then spent a few minutes with each of her companions, bolstering Malidar’s flagging energies.
And then, it was time to move on.
