Grimme returns to the Citadel

-Grimme started off by recovering from his fight with the #1 assassin, the one that looked like Death and nearly killed him. he found the wizard and young couple inside a death spell, but unaffected by it due to having his stone axe. Spellbreaker, and using its antimagic field to negate teh spell. they survived
-the rest of the village was looked at by teh party and found to be deserted, destroyed, and the people all dead.
-Grimme and Barthalamul went to digging a large grave, putting all teh bodies in the hole, and Grimme used his flame strike to burn them all and send them to their ancestors
-they all set up camp inside the old mayors house, and went to sleep. B-man however, planned to go back to the weird dream-state where he could fight the golem-like creature. intent to win this time, Grimme provided him with some enchantments that would help him in this fight, and let him fall asleep
-as with before, B-man awoke in the strange realm with the creature before him. B-man got the drop on the fight, and immediately prepared for the fight by using his judgements and greater bane against his target and preparing a shot
-the thing charged him, and the fight quickly turned into a mixture of elemental punches versus point blank shots
-with a final crack from his pistol, b-man shot off its head and it slumped to the ground, but immediately began to regenrate before his eyes. he unloaded his gun into the being again, but it still regenerated and began to move again. unafraid, b-man confronted the creature in front of him. it quickly determined that B-man had help, and flew off. ohhhhhhhhhhhh snap
-Grimme was busy tending to the dwarven couple and the small baby when he heard a large noise outside. he gave teh infant back, took up his axe, and set off outside to see what kinda trouble showed up. it was the thing from B-man’s dream-state. it started talking shit about how Grimme had “interfered” and “would be punished”, whatever. Grimme was gonna chop it up right good.
-Grimme ended up fighting them all, getting beat up a little bit and then winning. they healed back though, but seeing how badass Grimme was and how he was a force of Law, they saw fit to left. Grimme think they ran like cowards
-the main one gifted B-man with a powerful ability that permanently affected him (he gained the Judgement Bound Template)
-the small party set out the next morning to The Citadel and it was really an uneventful trip. it took abotu a week, and they arrived at the Citadel
-Grimme noticed it was dark, worn, and no one greeted him at the gate. Grimme knocked loudly on the massive entrance doors, and finally a lone guardsman came on top of the gate and told him to go away. Grimme immediately lost all patience, and air-walked up to the top of the gate and told the guard what-for, and to send for the top ranking guardsman to meet him and greet him, and that he woudl be waiting
-he send the young couple and their child to a familiar inn, the new wizard companion was sent on his own way as well
-Grimme went about to see who was in command of the Citadel now, and also to figure out what had happened to it. he ran into some very rude guards, and they turned him away. he didnt like that one bit, and he reeeaaalllly wanted to bash some heads in to get in, but he reminded himself he was a just and noble paladin, and not to kill these sad little guards. but a familiar voice found him. it was Heln, the female guard fromteh begining of his quest. she warned him that things were not the same, and to meet her tonight in the old inn where he had his first tussle
-he went down there and she was there, but with armed guards. grimme had a feeling shit was about to go down, and go down it did. turns out Heln was a vampire and she needed Grimme to die. she highly underestimated how powerful he had become though, and he defeated her and the other vampire guards she had brought as well.
-now Grimme was pissed. he was attacked by vampires in his own hometown! vampires in teh Citadel?!?!? he was gonna see undead heads roll for this.
-his next project was to find and destroy the head vampire. so he left the broken down tavern. as he was walking out, a stone hit him annoyingly in teh head. it was the elven-vampire ranger that hunts vampires, Guy Barstowe!!! he offered to help Grimme find the big head-hancho vamp. Grimme, being the noble and lawful good paladin, fuckign refused help from one vamp to kill another vamp. he also swore to guy that he would kill him after killing this big dude, and stormed off to the main castle in the citadel. Guy disappeared
-Grimme headed up to the Citadel now hella-pissed. he got up there and looked for this Magistrate, a political figure that showed up and started gaining control of the Citadel after Grimme left. he ended up going into the mountian to look for him and sure enough found some fucked up shit
-magistrate guy was there. big surprise, he’s a fucking vampire. a powerful one. battle ensues, and Grimme lays the smack down and woops some ass
-after the fight is over, Grimme realises that the ancient vampire crowns are missing from his pack. he sends the Mark 12 off to find them
-Grimme heads back to the citadel to find the Magistrate’s assisntant,Lord Commander Grimhart The Fair basically second command of the Citadel (although he should be leading in times of crisis). he found his Giant secretary barring the way, and he knocked him out to get in there. the old dwarf was sickly in bed, and told him to go away. Grimme refused, and demanded that justice be had. the leader of the Order of Torag told Grimme that if he disobeyed him, he would be expelled from teh Order. Grimme hesitated only a moment before telling the old fool to jog off, and the Grimme would see to the city. the old man then began to turn into a foul beast, large of muscle and power. Grimme had never seen a creature as this before. the old dwarf was obviously cursed, and in need of de-cursing (AXE TO THE FACE STYLE ENGAGED)
-so Grimme maaaaaaay have underestimated this chump. he pummeled Grimme for awhile, and then he pummeled him some more. not to be outdone, Grimme did some damage back. but the beast just seemed to keep coming at him. when Janus Stormbrow showed up to help, Grimme knew that the day was won, and there would be much drinking and laughter about this fight. that was untill the Beast that was Grimhart picked up Stormbrow and ripped his arm from his socket. Fuck.
-so Grimme battled some more, and evetually got grabbed by teh beast. it tore his arm off, and now Grimme could only use his axe and only go for the all out offensive. he airwalked out of reach of the Beast for awhile, but then decided it was better to die fighting this accursed thing then to stay away from it in cautious thinking. he charged with all of his might and power, and hit the Beast with a blow that would have felled a mountain. it was blasted back with such force that it flew throught the stone wall behind it and cascaded down through the air and landed with a statisfactory exploding splat on the stone beneath the tower.
-Grimme was in rough shape. he was beat to fuck, one of his arms was just laying bloody on the ground, and he was only alive because his fast healing was keepign his blood loss to a minimum. as he looked through the massive hole though down to the red smear that had become of the beast, he noticed that it was reforming! he jumped down and began to hack away at the thing, but it still was forming back….. Grimme was lost at a creature that his axe couldn’t kill. he wandered up to the room again and healed up Stormbrow so he wouldnt die. the creature reformed though, and climbed up the side of the tower at a maddening pace reaching Grimme quickly and back to full health.
-Grimme had it with this shit, and knew there was nothign left in his arsenal to defeat this thing. he felt a subtle feeling to use his horn, the Horn of Torag. upon using the artifact, the dark sky opened up heralding massive armed and armored winged angels.the angels then disentigrated the Beast, instantly regrew Grimme’s missing arm, and then took the Horn and left. oh yeah, they also bledded the living fuck out of Torag’s Hammer, and it permanently became a dwarven warhammer.
-Grimme then set out to rebuild and prepare the Citadel for the coming onslaught

all kinds of stuff...

-Grimme started off flying away from the weak, bitchy elves to go to the kingdom of teh dark elves to try to gain allies against teh coming army of Herald. he flew south to their kingdom.
-on teh way, he approached a large mountain with a small path running up the side. Grimme decided to investigate. the path lead to a small alcove with a statue of a beautiful elven woman (naked) and an old dwarven woman keeping the place tidy. she was batshit crazy and weird. the statue was of some elven princess that fell in love with a dark elf. this dark elf turned out to be #2, the assasin that tried to kill Grimme earlier in teh cold mountains. she woudl not be turned into flesh again untill he was teh greatest fighter ever. but Grimme killed him, and she was still a statue. grimme decided to investigate a mysteriously vanishing tower at teh top of teh mountain with tales of a being inside that could grant any wish (at a price)
-the tower appeared and Grimme went inside to some unknown shit. the basement was full of evils banshees in a pitch darkness. Grimme hates banshees, and he fought them but they just kept coming. he ended up finding their source, a black giant gem. he infused with with all of teh positive energy he could muster and banished all of teh creatures in one fell swoop. upstairs were some ice fairies (whatever). then there was a room of stone figures, that sprang to life when Grimme entered and tried to gain access to the final room. they attacked him, thinking he wanted the wish for himself. it was a tough fight, but Grimme killed all except the wizard (whose name was Mr. Wizard). Grimme then ascended the tower, alone. there was a djinn up there. he was an ass, Grimme killed him pretty quick. breaking a curse, the tower could not be material and real, and using the postively infused gem, Grimme coudl teleport to similar towers in teh world.
-down at teh alcove, Grimme saw teh statue come to life. she took teh spear Omen, and wandered off.

-back to the massive amount of people moving north, B-man and crew were escorting them as far north as possible. dragons attacked and kill alot of them. it was bad. B-man had weird dreams of fighting smoe big ass pally-justice-demon thing. he got his ass kicked. alot. was all, “whatevs brosef, i’m killing dragons”. when shit hit the fan, thats when Grimme showed up and wooped alot of dragon ass.
-together again, they made way with the survivors to Easthorn which was in ruins. inside, Grimem found Bitchsplitter was still there but a little crazy (he still had a few dwarves to protect, and they were locked away safe). a new witch had been attacking the town and raising all of teh dead to turn against. the fortified and prepared the town for the attack that night. all teh elves were slaughtered. Grimme killed the with and the crazed Bitchsplitter and the next day took teh dwarf survivors with him to the Citadel. on the way, he came upon the small town from his earlier travels, King’s well, and this massive cloaked figure ROCKED THE SOCKS OFF OF GRIMME and turned Drembador into a flaming beaver!!! but with his dwarven resolve and sheer dumb luck, Grimme managed to pull a W, and collapsed from teh battle.

Grimme in the Barrier Mountians, and walking into the Maw of the Abyss

Grimme was out of the first level of Hell, and Barthalamul was with him as well. Propelled out by some sort of massive cannon, Grimme was shot into a freezing cold mountain range with wind and snow everywhere. He had no idea where he was, but B-man claimed they must be in the Barrier Mountains, far south of Terminus and past its reach. A decent place to get started. Grimme is tough as nails, so the cold barely bothered him at all, but B-man had issues with it. They decided to travel north, and to eventually get to Terminus to confront and stop Herald.
Grimme is a tough sort of dwarf, and wasn’t much affected by this cold climate, but B-man was not looking so great. A dark figure appeared shortly after the snowy traveling began, and beckoned Grimme and his party to join him, for he had been waiting for them here. Grimme thought this was odd at first, but B-man was freezing to death, so they needed to get shelter. After a short traveling period, they arrived at a small but warmer cave that had a fire and supplies. The dark armored figure then told Grimme he was an assassin, number 2, and had been charged to kill him. He then proceeded to tell Grimme why, but Grimme didn’t want to hear any of that shit and decided to charge (yes, this wasn’t a smart idea). Grimme had enough of assassins, and wanted this one dead quickly, but he got over his head fast. Turns out this guy was pretty good, and he kinda killed Grimme. Grimme awoke sometime later groggy and torn up, and the man with the spear was patiently waiting on the other side of the cave. He wanted to fight Grimme at his absolute best, and face him and defeat him for personal as well as professional reasons. So Grimme healed up, cast some protective and offensive spells, and then saw his opponent was wounded from their last battle. He laid his hands on him, and healed him some, even though this guy wanted him dead, he had honor, and Grimme could respect honor. The next battle was even fiercer than the first. The combatants slammed into each other with massive force, dealing grievous blow after blow; but in the end, Grimme stood victorious and smote the man. After the fight was over, Grimme looked over his corpse to see if anything was worth taking: the spear was magnificent like Grimme had only seen in one other weapon so he took it (Omen), the warrior also had a bracelet on with some inscription. He left the armor on the man (an dark elf it turned out), and buried him in the small cave. Grimme also left his hammer, The Grimme Reaper, for the man so he would still have a weapon in the afterlife.
They traveled for awhile, and were attacked by strange creatures twice, but they were easily managed. After a time, the Mark-12 reported they was some sort of cave that was warm in the distance. Grimme and B-man were quite chilled, so they decided to investigate. In the large cave, there was an eccentric dwarf. His name was Wik, and he was kinda crazy. He warmed Grimme, and told him he needed to travel deep into the cave and face whatever was down there. Grimme, wanting to trust this dwarf because #1 He was a dwarf and #2 Grimme had seen this dwarf in a vision months before hand. Grimme told B-man to stand guard at the entrance of the cave and warm up, and Grimme traveled deeper into the cave to investigate.
Grimme came to a hole in the ground, and heat was wafting up from the hole. He decided the best thing to do would be to jump down and investigate. How deep could it be? Turns out it was pretty deep, and Grimme was almost turned into paste when he hit the bottom. Luckily for Grimme, his fast healing allowed him to recover in a decent amount of time. When he was able and ready, he observed his surroundings and saw that he was in a vast cave, and he seemed to be on the only place that wasn’t covered in lava. While he was down there, he felt a presence, a massive and deadly presence. Determined to see what it was, Grimme yelled out a challenge to the being, knowing that he was here to face it. Once the challenge was issued, a rumbling began and turned into violent shaking that turned into a massive creature erupted from the lava in front of him: Drimnbadôrr, Scourge of the Dwarves. The enormous creature, half lava and half earthen might was all rage when its fiery gaze fell on Grimme. The battle immediately took place, with no quarrel asked or given. Grimme knew the stacks, and he knew he had to win. The beating he received was intense, nearly killing him truly, but he remained stalwart and ferocious. Drimnbadôrr was finally vanquished with a mighty blow from the dwarven paladin, and it sank back into the lava from whence it came. Slowly recovering from his beating, Grimme noticed that something else was coming up form the lava as well! Determined to meet this new foe, and most likely his death, with dignity Grimme readied himself for battle. Instead of the massive form of Drimnbadôrr though, a smaller (but still bigger than Grimme) form appeared. In texture it resembled Drimnbadôrr, but it now had four legs and a long tail, somewhat resembling a lion or tiger but much thicker and on fire. However, its demeanor was also much different, more akin to a happy stupid dog. It lapped at Grimme’s face and was friendly. Grimme felt in his soul that this “dog” was in fact Drimnbadôrr reformed, and was his new companion for some reason only the gods knew. He hopped up on the creature, and traveled back up the hole he fell down.
During the time down the hole while Grimme fought the massive beast, stone giants decided to attack B-man and the dwarven crazy, Wiik. Wiik immediately turned tail and ran. B-men dealth with the giants via his gun. When the fight was over, Grimme appeared with his new companion Drimnbadôrr. B-man was at first worried, but then he realized that the creature on fire would keep them warm in the freezing mountains.
The heroes continued traveling north to get back to the land of Terminus and the humans. Grimme had a vision while he was resting one night, and decided to go forward faster alone and ride Drimnbadôrr the way. B-man could ride him as well, but only with the help of a spell protecting him from the intense heat. After a short time, they made it to the human lands and plains, finding abandoned houses and villages along the way.

Grimme's Walk through Hell

-Grimme knew he was in deep shit (AKA HELLSAUCE) and needed to get out. wasnt afriad, just didnt want to be in hell. B-man said it wasnt a big deal, everyone here was cool as fuck. went down, starting asking around about Torag’s Hammer, and sent out Mrk. 12 to find it as well.
-went down, people were dull and useless. apparently pay for things with pieces of your soul. turn you in dull thing, then you go down more into Hell. Grimme found sword merchant, he was worthless, went into place with 100s of copies of the Hammer. demanded to speak to boss. instead, found asshoel from long ago bearing a grudge
-ambush.jpeg
-no worries, killed them all, sent that asshole further into hell, good riddance
-go to brothel for info. find fat bitch. little slimy brat gave me blue coin before, show her blue coin, bitch freaks out and tells me to leave
- #whatabitch
-find dude, says he is mammon, archduke of Avernus, and he has torag’s hammer, and he will give it to Grimme if he entertains him. Grimme reluctantly pseudo-agrees and counters with terms that B-man and M12 also leave with him. a bargain is had, and Grimme starts fighting
-in plains area with big rocks, orc chieftains come out and start hitting Grimme with Tth Amon
-kill them all, next scene bitches
-basically i fight all of the big characters i have fought in teh past(olkar stonecutter, fala, rhuark, etc.). mammon told them if they killed me they would get some reward. and i whooped them. the assassins were all together and quite hard, but i managed to kill all of them too.
-then, the final fight was in some arena. and there, standing across from Grimme was Karia with a still gaping wound in her chest from where Torag’s Hammer pierced her breast
-Grimme was tore up, he wasnt expecting Karia to be here. he refused to fight her, but she attacked viciously. Grimme knew something was not right, and proceeded to beat her body hoping that she would go down quietly. she attacked Grimme with a ferocity that he did not expect, but Grimme eventually won, and he body crumpled down, bloody and beaten again. Grimme, overcome with emotion, dropped to teh ground and cradled her body as black hands came to drag her down to teh next level of hell. Grimme would not allow that to happen, and held on to her tightly. the hands relinquished, and Grimme continued to hold on as a black spirit exited her corpse and manifested into a dark specter in front of him.
-Infuriated, Grimme rushed headlong into battle, disregarding the powerful blows he received and bashed the evil creature all over the arena. finally killing it in a massive blow.
-during these fights, B-man died several times. but due to the contract with mammon, he was alive at the end of it
-Grimme was transported to a garden in hell, and there was the real Torag’s Hammer and a golden ticket out of hell. Grimme demanded the archduke’s presence telling him that in due time, he would kill him for what he did to Karia. Mammon only laughed
-as they were walking out of Hell, a fat ugly cleric came out of the exit and began picking a fight with Grimme and crew. he reduced B-man to a small ball, instantly killing him and Grimme finished him off. B-man was back to life, and they went to the exit and got blasted out of hell in a massive cannon
-WEEEEE OOOO WEEEE OIIIII WEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! WICKED GUITAR SOLO
-landed in a lake and rested. went to town and got horses to Terminus. Army was already gone, so went off in persuit. fought some punk wolves, made it to marshes. fucking cyborg-bear was there, massive muthafucka. killed him, went back to terminus. tried to find noble who could teleport us to army. he said he would for vampire crowns. agreed, but he fucked up the portal, and became one of teh vampires. got the shit kicked out of us, but we won, and hoped in teh portal
-jumped out into a fucking blizzard. no army in site. we are fucked.

more of Terminus, meetin' Herald, and then.....what is this place.....

-we pick up right after teh battle with the mithral gomlem and the fall of Barthalamul and the appearance of Tth Kamul the black dragon
-Grimme sensed some evil within the building within some crates, and investigated. he found a tall hourglass and tried to destroy it, but cracked his hammer instead
-he investigated another box, and found some tailsmans, some kinda torch thing, about 20 large magical stones(ioun stones), and a massive spike
-Grimme ignored the tailsmans, and gave the torch to Summer and kept the great spike for himself
-he found another crate full of dwarf skulls. saying this made Grimme angry is an huge understatement
-while he was sorting through the crates of stuff, he started hearing wailing noises and sirens. sounded like loud horns to him, but he paid them little heed
-the sirens were very loud now, and then some punk-bitch robots dropped through the roof, bent on destroying the adventurers
-grimme wasn’t having any of this nonsense, and immediately set to the destruction of teh robots spurred by his angry of seeing skulls of his brethren
-a cloud of metallic insects entered the main room and set abotu attacking Summer
-Grimme and Drago took care of all of teh robots that dropped in from teh ceiling and destryoed most of teh cloud of bugs damaging Summer. but Summer was badly wounded and barely survived the encounter
-Grimme managed to escape himself and hide while Drago grabbed Summer and disappeared like a ninja in teh shadows
-Grimme then hid for a couple of hours, and returned to his crappy little room in his crappy little inn
-he immediately found Summer resting, and he checked her vitals and went to sleep himself
-after resting, he awoke and tended to Summer’s wounds, and found several metallic bugs still buried in her skin. as he pulled them out, they began to multiply and divide into greater numbers
-he quickly ran to the kitchen in teh inn and stole a small jar to gather them all in. he did and watched them multiply in teh jar until teh jar was full, but the jar didnt burst, so he carefully pocketed it
-Grimme spent the next couple of days watching over Summer, recovering himself and thinking. once Summer was recovered and up and moving, Grimme told her that she had to go home, and he could not guarantee her safety anymore (he secretly thought of Karia and how he let her die and how he could not live with that happening again).
-before she left, Summer identified all of teh things he found: ioun stones, beacon of true faith, and a maleficus spike
-once Summer was gone, Grimme knew what he must do. He paid up the innkeeper (a solid chunk of gold worth about 1200gp) and wandered into the streets of Terminus fully armed and armored.
-Grimme marched over to a building he scoped out earlier and went to find Herald. some guards laughed at him, because they were punk bitches, and then he went inside for a tour.
-Grimme skipped this crappy tour, and went to find someone who could direct him to Herald. he found aristocrat looking douche, and demanding to be taken to Herald. he said something about it taking a couple of months, but Grimme wasnt having that shit. not today. he punched the guy in teh nuts and demanded to see him today. the fool went unconscious instead.
-Grimme then looked outside across teh bay to the massive fortress isolated in the sea, knowing it was Herald’s (in his gut) and watched small boats leaving and taking port at some docks a couple of miles away. Grimme now had a destination.
-upon reaching the crowded docks, Grimme decided to try to find a ship that would take him to this fortress island. nobody seemed to know how to help him, so he looked for a person that would be able, someone in charge of teh docks. a tall fat man with a book shouting orders would suffice, so Grimme tried to get his attention, after some failed attempts and growing impatient, Grimme decided pain would get the lout’s attention. he made alot of noise, told Grimme nothing important, and called some guards over. Grimme didnt like these guards and their guns, so he put the human between him and teh guns and waited. unexpectedly, they shot teh man and then shot Grimme. these humans were evil indeed.
-he made quick work of them on the docks, but by the time he was done with them, a group of robots were coming down the docks toward him. they surrounded him, and larger robots began to come near. they told him to surrender, but Grimme would have welcomed death over surrendering to evil robots (that sounds weird)
-the robots opened fire with their lasers. Grimme hunkered down behind his sheild and braced himself for the pain. his shield absorbed an enormous amount of punishment, and Grimme’s tattoos protected him from the rest.
-the smoke lceared and Grimme stood unscathed from teh lasers. “IS THAT ALL YOU GOT?!?!” Grimme challenged to them as they began to close in around him and Grimme prepared himself for one hell of a fight.
-but Grimme was robbed of his fight as the robots all halted mid stride and a small figure flew toward him. it was a skull with metall all over it, and it spoke to Grimme, telling him if he wanted to meet Herald, Grimme must go with the weird floating skull. Grimme, happy to finally have a lead on Herald, gladly accepted and the little skull probed him and they transported to a well-lite room of black stone. Grimme tried to escape, and then catch the skull, but it evaded him and told him teh walls were 5 miles thick. so Grimme patiently waited…. for 12 hours
-at the 12 hour point, the floating skull thing whirled into action, extending its probe again and teleporting Grimme and itself to a somewhat circular room with four colmns, a central portal looking thing, and a whole bunch of dudes with high powered pistols
-fuck, why does this ALWAYS happen to me????
-the welcoming party immediately began shooting Grimme, and he burst into action, killing severeal of them within the first 30 seconds of battle, but taking a beating in the meantime
-he was finally just against 2-3 of them, and he managed to finaggle his way to victory. Grimme time and time again is put in these situations where he comes nearly to death, but emerges. He has no idea how this works, but it does, so he pressed on and went into the portal carrying the mage of the ‘welcoming party’. it did not go well for the body, because the portal cut it in half, and he ended up leaving the body
-the portal took him to a chamber with hallways, which lead to bigger and bigger hallways. all the way he went, he was healing up and noticed that each large antechamber had larege statues of Herald (in the nude) and Grimme disapproved.
-after awhile of these halls, Grimme came upon a massive set of doors with a slight staircase leading up to them, but that was not the object of his focus in this hallway, it was the massive robot that stood in teh way, and had missiles all over him. as soon as Grimme stepped forward, the automation declared to that get to Herald Grimme had to first defeat it. Grimme obliged glady. running toward the beast and getting hit with missiles along the way, he finally reched the metallic monster and methodically began slamming into it with his weapons. it went down after awhile, but not before hitting the holy hell out of Grimme.
-He entered the room (bringing one of the missiles with him) and the room appeared to be some sort of opera theater, complete with above seats and an orchestra. and there on the stage was Herald himself. but it was obvious he wasnt human, he was a good 9-10ft tall, and had an unearthly evil presence about him. he was also casually playing with the object of the entire quest: Torag’s Hammer! dialogue was exchanged, but Grimme knew in his soul that this….creature_…was responsible for horrible things in this world, and the vileness in teh city. it must be destroyed, at all costs. the beast seemed joyful, jolly in fact that Grimme was present, and set an orchestra about playing, showing Grimme its hostage: Summer (barely alive at that, and pinned to a massive board). and the battle began. Grimme used all of his abilities right off the bat, and knew he stood a better chance untill the fiend cast a spell that dispelled all of his helpful enchantments! so Grimme set to his grisly work without them.
-Herald set Drago against Grimme in teh beginning to soften it up. unfortunately for Drago, Grimme was in no mood for tricks and Drago was dispatched of quickly to reach his target (but Grimme felt bad that).
-then the real fight began, trading blows with extreme power and brute skill aginst skill. after both took a substantial beating, Herald jumped back and revealed his TRUE FORM!!!! kinda like Frieza, but more gay if you can believe it.
-Herald was in fact a fiend, and evil outsider from the pits of hell. Grimme knew he must be killed now! the battle resumed, but now Herald had 6 arms, and that was troublesome as it took its toll on Grimme’s body. soon it was all Grimme could do just to stay alive. then Herald turned very invisible, not allowing Grimme to get a good fix on his location.
-Grimme was taking punishment and bad. he was not afraid of death, but he did not want to be so close to completeing his quest and failing. he fought hard in teh last moments, and even tried to have summer help, but she was far too wounded. Grimme was desperatre, and slammed his Malefius Spike into the ground with fantastic results. Herald hated this item, and immediately had fear in his eyes, it appeared that Grimme woudl be victorious! but Herald ripped teh spike from teh ground, ending the spell and plunging Grimme back into the losing field of teh fight. the Herald threw the spike into a bomb, and teh room exploded dealing lethal damage to Grimme. as Grimme lay there slowly dying, Herald left telling someone to take Grimme away. and he faded out of consciousnes…..
-Grimme awoke in a white room, with glass as one wall for observation. he only waited for a bit, for the flosting skull returned along with another figure…..Barthalamul carrying Grimme’s Reaper!!!
-B-man wanted to help Grimme, because after death, his mind opened or some crap. whatever, Grimme was gonna hit him. B-manm dropped teh glass shield, and Grimme pounced on him and took his hammer. B-man didnt resist, and grimme took that as a good sign. armed only with his respectable penis and his massive warhammer, Grimme set out in teh prison
-found dead bodies, some big demon, and released a men little girl (she got owned later by chain demons)
-fought this big creature later with all of Grimmes stuff, and he got all of it back.
-B-man told Grimme that Summer had escaped (with his help) and went to seek out the mad dwarf, and he also informed Grimme where they were:the first level of the hell known as Avernus the Never-ending City
-_OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK

Into Enemy lands...Terminus and Herald enter the game!

-after making sure that Summer’s people were taken care of and my equipment was battle ready, we head east to follow the only trail i have to find Torag’s Hammer again
-we went in the direction of the Commonwealth, run by the human lands and governed by a strange body of people known as The Administration
-Summer and Grimme traveled mostly in good conditions, and made nice amount of small talk during this time. Summer’s companion, the dragon, made no apperances
-we traveled and Grimme gave her more gear that woudl benefit her far more than it woudl benefit him
-one night, they approached a stretch of road that was well-lit by torches lining the road
-there seemed to be some men that we also blocking the road
-Grimme didnt like the look of it, and sent Summer off into the woods to stay hidden until he investigated what this business was about
-and as soon as the light was clearly on Grimme, the humans opened fire with their guns in 2 volleys
-Grimme, never really being exposed to guns in teh past, did not know what followed the thunderous explosion of gun powder. but it hurt like a bitch, so he did the only sensible thing he knew to do
-he charged straight at the crew of 20+ men
-the men, amazed that somethign on 2 legs survived the onslaught of a barrage of gunfire, were shocked and didnt know how to handle the wrecking ball of dwarven fury and metal catapulting into their ranks and laying waste to their visage and dreams of discipline and precision
-Grimme wooped some ass, and then some sergeant with a shotgun did some real damage all ‘up close and personal’ like. as a last act, the sergeant dropped a vibrating object onto the ground, and it burrowed into the earth and dissapeared. Grimme paid it no heed
-the battle lasted only a little while in a sense, but to Grimme, it was far too long, and far too many times getting shot
-on the sergeant’s body, there was a papaer being some description of him and summer, and an “X” on his picture
-Grimme did not like the look of this
-as he started to recover ever so slightly from teh battle, more soldiers appeared with more rifles, and opened fire on Grimme
-badly shot up already and bleeding, Grimme ran to the woods on the side of the road for cover (he also found a cowering soldier that had run away from his fellows in the previous fight. if there is anythign Grimme hates worse than elves, gobbos, and trees it is cowards. he dispatched the strumpet easily)
-as the line up of soldiers lined up to shoot into the woods were Grimme recovered behind the soldiers body, Grimme had to think of somethign and quick
-reaching inside his pouch, he found a silvery vial of liquid that he remembered to be a potion of invisibility and he drank it
-Predatormodeengaged.gif
-invisible, he stalked his prey, and moved to a more advantageous position flanking his would be attackers
-as they searched the area for his body, believing him dead, he attacked with just as much force as he previously did, felling the rest of the soldiers while taking minimal damage
-victorious, Grimme saw to some of his wounds and began to look for Summer, but he noticed somethign strange
-the ground was vibrating, and then shaking, and then violently shaking
-fearing the worse (giants or somethign terribly large and willing to kick him) Grimme tried to find the source
-the source came from 3 giant golem-like creatures that had emerged from the ground (the grenade that the sergeant let burrow in teh ground had consequences it semmed…)
-already beaten up and not looking so good, Grimme knew only one thing to do, and that was to fight, but let the enemy approach him
-they did, and they whomped on him for awhile, and it sucked
-Grimme did manage to down a couple of them, but the broken peices began to merge into a bigger, meaner looking one and then THAT one whomped on Grimme
-things did not look good for the hero now
-then, from out of nowhere, there appeared a strange creature with 2 swords tearing into the massive golem beast
-the beast went down quickly, but Grimme knew not if this new creature was friend or foe, so his guard remained up, and his weapons ready
-Summer appeared and introduced her new companion, the creature known simply as Drago
-after letting his guard down to this new companion, Grimme and Summer went off to a small cave and rested from teh battle
-the next day, they continued their traveling down the road to the human city, passing the bodies of the soldiers that Grimme killed the night before
-after awhile they came upon a traveling man who was heading to the human city with a wagon full of veridium
-they knocked him out, stole his cloths, and Grimme hid in teh back of the wagon as they entered the gates of the human city, Terminus
-also had to knock out some guards at teh city gate to make it past
-once inside the city, they maintained a low profile and stayed at a small inn
-Terminus was massive, a bustling metropolis the likes Grimme had never seen. there was a wealthy section and a slum section, and an industry section, guards patrol everywhere and
-Grimme spent a couple of days wandering the city and due to his Knowledge of the Ancients could pick up the local language in that time
-he also noticed posters of someone called “Harold” everywhere, and that everyone in the city was evil (this perturbed Grimme)
-Grimme decided to investigate teh industrial side of Terminus, and got in a bit of a scrap with some gunmen
-it was an easy enough fight, and Grimme had to flee the scene to avoid capture
-later that night he found a mysterious building that was large and isolated from the others in the industrial section, and he later learned that it supposedly held mysterious artifacts of great power
-so of course Grimme waited untill nightfall and did his best to infiltrate the building
-he fought some robots to get in, and didnt worry too much about them
-once inside, he saw several crates and 2 figures
-one of them was a massive golem, seemingly made of pure mithral with some adamantine (Grimme knew he would be a tough fight), the other figure was none other than Barthamul Cross, the figure who had escaped Grimme with his battle with Tth Amon
-the battle raged quickly and with lots of damage being traded around
-the golem did a lot of damage to Grimme, enough to where he had to be a little desperate in the fight
-Barthamul had this little prissy gun out, and was shooting Grimme and his companions with it
-Grimme knew that if the battle raged on he would die, and not complete his mission, so with all of his last strength, he charge the gun-wielding vermin and used his Radiant Charge ability to lay all possible damage into the fiend and smote him
-the golem and gunman was defeated, but upon Barthalamul’s death, Tth Kamul appeared and wisked him away. it was a strange encounter indeed

Summer, Marshes, and Veridium, Oh My!

-met summoner and her pet dragon
-brought karia’s body with me and wrapped her body in the cape of lost causes, and built her a funeral pyre and burned her body, leaving assblaster
-jumped off cliff and landed badly
-walked through jungle and walked through lightning mushrooms
-came to marsh, had to walk around it
-fought a hag, and bugs swarmed out of her
-made it across the marsh, and came to a village in the trees
-giant evil apes attacked us
-i fell again
-found veridium, a green glowing material that corrupts and kills if you are exposed to it too much
-followed source to a giant river and then a large lake
-was informed the inhabitants lived on teh other side
-went to other side and village was empty, but there was a giant mutated crab
-mmmmmmm, crab legs for dinner
-summer informed me her village was close
-we went to her village, which would normally be located on top of a massive hill/mountain
-instead, a massive face was being carved into the side of teh mountain, and green veins of veridium was showing
-i went forward determined to end this threat to innocents
-battle ensued, and i saw two figured in one of teh eyeholes of the face on teh side of teh mountain
-i pursued the figures, with some pesky guards along teh way
-made it to the hole and went inside, sensing great evil and peril
-came to the end, and a chasm led straight down and straight up
-i informed summer that the evil was below, and jumped down
-i fell straight into lava, and there was only a pit of lava down here
-opps.jpg
-in quite a pickle, i tried to climb out and failed time and time again
-this was kind of depressing, my quest was coming to an end because of lava. LAVA, not a dragon or demon, but LAVA
-so as im fumbling for an escape, Dragon comes down and calls me an idiot, and causes an explosion in teh lava
-this causes the lava to swell and rise (quick quickly) and bring me all teh way up to teh top of the mountain, where i am hurled out and land with a thud
-badly damaged and burned, i rise to find alot of my gear almost destroyed by teh lava
-there was also people there interrupting my recovery, time to beat some ass
-there atop the mountain/large hill were the 2 figures from teh eye
-the mage-lookin’-fella says he is Tth Amon, and he starts talking smack, the other figure remains silent and disappears at some point threatening me by saying how i am interfering with the community or whatever (/ignore)
-summer comes down and starts talking shit too to Tth Amon (i stand queitly as my armor and my body heals from teh lava)
-and then, out of nowhere, Summer calls the evil wizard Tth Amon guy father!
- PLOT TWIST (SHOUTED BY MR. TORQUE)
-well, we end up fightin’
-i smash him right good, and thats pretty much teh fight
-world goes black, see a giant black dragon appear, this is Tth Kamul, the evil-ass dragon dead-ass Tth Amon worships
-so, people are liberated, but they all have severe veridium poisoning, so we make a camp outside of the afflicted area and me and summer see to her peoples health for teh next couple of days
-i also repair my items, the ones that survived that is
