Prelude

Lara, a woman raised in retribution, a town founded by the pirate jarkins, was sold by the blue dragon Mercer who has taken over the town after jarkins death, to a nest of formorians who wanted more slaves with nice usefull fingers.

Lara was able to tell the parter the formorians had slaves of several races and a variaty of giant insects under thier control

Summary

The party track down the lair of the ant men, encountering a giant walking stick insect along the way that projectile vomits on them

The formorian was human slaves to make clay pots with thier soft smooth hands and have a dozen of so prisoners.

The players taunt a worker who uses his hive mind to warn the rest while he humors randy's efforts to insult a bug guy.

3 of the warrior formians attack along with a giant stag beetle with two worker in a howdah.

on being attack the warriors reveal that the colored patterns on thier shell give them a one time use of a arcane spell.

As the formians are defeated a horde of self animated undead orc are released while a warrior with invisibility, enlarge, and heroism sneaks around to takalis, randy is charmed ot try to convince the party to leave, and scales is confused to little effect until the mass of the zomebies fall and he fixates on takalis for his next target.

Before he can reach him, takalis runs away and scale is overwhemed by confusion while garanth talkt to him until scales is once again seized by the spell and chomps a good hit on garanth before the spell end.

low on spell and bombs, the still charmed randy convinces the party to leave for the moment.

Two day later some of the prisoner show up at the casino and light a signal fire, haveing been freed by taskmaster zern when the funding for his project was pulled on the urgeing of his rivals and the pottery was abandoned.

they learn their are 3 queen in the hive, the yellow which collect resources in teh rain forest, the red which gaurds their nest from teh ever expanding orcs, and a blue that is doing something to the south east unknown to them.

Tikalis: Javelins are poisoned.

Steve: Batter Up!

Steve: What's this guy's name?
GM: Guard #3.
Steve: Awesome! He's a nameless mook. I grab his stinger before he can penetrate me. "Sorry, I'm not that guy!"
