It's Saturday and game night at Matakishi's place.
Tonight is the continuation of part 1 of Matakishi's Oubliette campaign using the Black Hack rules.
You can find Matakishi's full report on it here.
In the previous session, we had left it at the troll bridge. And that's where we picked it up. We had to decide how to proceed: Fight the troll or cross the rickety bridge.
There was also Remuz's 'cunning' plan, which we immediately dismissed, leaving us with the original 2 options.
In the end we decided that the potential risk of the rickety bridge was a better bet than the guaranteed trouble we would have with the troll.
In the end we crossed the bridge without incident.
We continued. We encountered The Lady Cassandra who somehow joined our band. We encountered some food all laid out and looking tasty. We were all immediately suspicious of it. All except Remuz. It seemed to have no effect on Remuz, so The Lady Cassandra had some and promptly puked. Nonplussed, we pressed on.
Next we came to an area with gear. There was a sign that implied that we could swap our ramshackle kit for better equipment. So we did. We left with some actual useful that wouldn't fall apart after any sort of prolonged usage.
We continued exploring, eventually we encountered what appeared to be vast and bottomless chasm. We could see an exit on a far wall. There were numerous columns or platforms dotted throughout the area that could lead to the exit.
With great caution we began traversing these quite frankly dodgy platforms. Partway across appears a flying super giant insect. It was quite a nasty thing and it attacked us.
On the platforms when it attacked, there was the risk that we could be knocked off the platforms and into the inky gulf below. The fight was desperate and stressful but but we prevailed and then made it to the exit and left.
I play, I paint.
