At last, the party came to the chamber housing the evil. They found many undead within, as well as a lake of blood and a horrible monster atop a throne of bones. A battle inevitably ensued after it was revealed that Sherriff Ringo had been luring adventurers into the catacombs in exchange for money and protection. The undead charged at the party, and Bodak’s fearsome gaze struck down Atlas Thor, who dropped his sword and fell with one arm in the lake of blood. He was dragged out of the chamber by Fluffy. Dropkick Starcaster volleyed an immense fireball at the tower of bone where the throne was, destroying and scattering the skeletons. Barbus and Sunny attempted to hold off the ghouls and ghosts that attacked them at the perimeter of the chamber while Dropkick purposefully strode forward, launching fireball after fireball. Bodak rose, descended from the throne and unsheathed an axe from his skin. With fireballs exploding upon him, he continued walking forward towards Dropkick, who was able to shield himself from the heat of the fire. Meanwhile, Barbus had become paralysed, and Fluffy defended him form a bloodthirsty ghoul. At last, with his power waning and the distance between he and Bodak shrinking to dangerous levels, Dropkick made a decision. Bodak, visibly injured, shocked, and angry raised his ax as Dropkick readied his final spell. Bodak struck, cleaving Dropkick nearly in two. Dropkick cast a fireball spell at the floor, and when the fire and smoke had cleared, all that remained was a dying Bodak and a small green toe with Dropkick’s Ring on it, which the party had assumed had been discarded after it was discovered that it was also a ring of alignment change. Sunny was able to strike down the Bodak with great vengeance and furious anger after a brief struggle. It was time to return to Mirkfen.
