Skulls & Shackles #20: The Battle Rages On!

At the end of the last session, we left our heroes in deep peril as the party battled against the sinister grindylow queen and her minions.


Felik was in particular peril, but Fered—heroically—hurled himself into the water and pushed the near-dead elf aside. Seeing Fered’s heroic act, many of the rest of the party jumped into the water—determined to carry the fight to the queen.
