When Rage Claw joined the rest of the group, they hadn’t done much. They investigated the doors that they found on the walkway. Over what appeared to be the main gate into the stone were several thick metal bars, covered in heavy chains, built into the rocks themselves. It appeared that the gate was barred from the outside. The eastern door showed evidence of a three foot thick stone gate that was slid up into the roof, behind which two doors stood open.
Whatever this place was, it was built to be locked down tightly.
Not a lot happened in this session. The pcs had a lot of ‘accounting work’ to do (the only downside of ACKS; (B/X really) ruthless attention to detail when it comes to money). How much in the bank, what supplies do they need, etc. There was a lot of back and forth over what direction they should go in. They had the letter that pointed to a larger, dangerous conspiracy, but in a solo session, Rage Claw and Lilith discovered (by using Speak with Animals to talk to a giant rat) a goblin lair that needed to be cleaned out. It took a lot of debate before they finally settled on what to do.
This is what I see when they talk to animals…somehow they all end up becoming anthropomorphic. And bad ass.
