ADVENTURE 2- The Lost Keep of the Hool Marshes
We had heard rumors of a keep long abandoned and half sunken into the Hool Marshes.
Maybe someday we will return to these caves and find out what lies beyond the
- 10/25/591 Westkeep - From Westkeep, we traveled west
through Logard Fort, then north into the Hool marshes. We trudged
through these marshes for days and fought many monsters before finding the
Lost Keep. Monsters saw, killed, or ran away from included a water troll,
bullywogs, giant centipedes, and worst of all an eight headed hydra.
- 10/30/591 In Hool Marshes 2 days from Logard Fort - After slaying the eight
headed hydra, we found remnants of an ancient road with some giant frog and some
giant lizard tracks. We followed this road north and after two day's travel we
found the Lost Keep.
- 11/1/591 At the Lost Keep in the Hool Marshes - We spent the next 4 days
exploring the keep. A tribe of bullywogs had made it their home. Visiting them at
the same time that we were, was a giant slug. This thing was huge! It was over 20'
long and about 5' thick. Lucky for us it was a slow mover and we were able to avoid
it during our exploration of the Keep. During the first couple of days we fought and
killed many bullywogs in a couple of hairy battles.
- 11/4/591 At the Lost Keep in the Hool Marshes - After recovering from a
battle that took place on the 2nd we gathered our equipment together and headed back into
the Keep. In the lowest levels we were ambushed by strange trogloditic lizard men. We
spent the next 4 days fighting these troglodytes and exploring their warrens which were
tunneled below the earth extending far from the Keep.
- 11/7/591 In the Lost Keep on the Middle Level - After recovering from
several battles with troglodytes, we prepared to make a final assault into the
troglodyte warrens. In an epic battle we killed 18 troglodytes and forced the massive
troglodyte chief to flee for his life. We pursued him, but he jumped into a huge
underground lake where we could not follow (or did not wish to follow). We gathered all
of the troglodyte treasures and headed back to Westkeep.
