This is written by me, Purumars Blackripper so it may be biased. But the dwarf is too stupid to write and the half-elf looks like he would steal the pen and paper.
Tanis (rogue), Samadam(barbarian) and I meet in front of Taskmaster Doran. The taskmaster explains that the tunnels within VorTusic need to be cleaned of rats. Our worth to the city will be determined by the number of rat tails we bring back.
The mayor rambles on and wastes time blathering about blah, blah, blah… rats, manifest destiny, new tracts of land whatever
We have to cross a skinny bridge to get to the outer ring where we will rappel down the outside of the city to enter the tunnels. The pansy dwarven barbarian is pertrified at the head of the bridge, I continued to the tie off point while Tanis helps Boduke with his fear of heights.
We enter the tunnels and the dwarf visibly relaxes. We don’t have any companions who need smelly torches so we are able sneak in without drawing too much attention.
During our first combat as a group I pinned two rats together with a magnificent arrow shot. The barb and rogue kill some rats too.
After combat I licked the blood of dead rats off my hands. The others look impressed; definitely not disgusted.
When we next run into rats, Tanis gets a decent hit on one. He sliced the rat into three pieces and snatched the tail out of the air (cool).
I tried to jump over a little stream of water, fell short and slid down a tunnel until I was stuck against a rusty grate. (yowling ensued).
The barb tossed down a rope to allow me to climb up.
I tried jumping over the water again, failed and ended up soggy on the same grate.
Since the barb and rogue had waded the stream they were able to throw down the rope and I climbed back up. This time I was on the correct side of the passage.
We wended our way through a neat mechanical room and finally entered the central control room. We were ambushed by rats but defeated them handily.
I flipped levers and the sound of rushing water changed (experiments, cool)
Tanis busted open the rusted control room door with amazing strength and skill. I think he broke his crowbar though.
We exiting the control room and talked with Doran. She thinks we are awesome (She’s right). We reentered the control room, turned off both output A & B and searched for the rat-king.
After back tracking almost to the beginning of the tunnels we discovered the rat-king’s lair.
We found the rat-king and attacked. Before the barbarian could even run over and hit the rat-king Tanis and I pinned the red eyed menace to the wall with a storm of arrows. Tanis was shooting like a madman (badass and cool)
We returned to the surface for our just rewards.
