     14 ## party notes
     15 ### session 1
     16 
     17 start at the yawning portal, we all pay 1 gold piece to go down the portal. we are introduced as obaya uday from port nyanzaru, on behalf of the wizard wakanga to find magic items.
     18 
     19 everyone cheers as we are lowered down the portal. people are putting bets on us. it is a 140foot drop, takes a long time to get down. we are lowered into a 40ft square room, with sand on the ground and dusty, graffiti covered shields on the walls.
     20 
     21 we follow a corridor to another room. the walls are lined with door shaped recesses with carvings of demons. at the end of the room are stairs downward. one of the carvings is pointing across the room to a bas relief. when val investigates a door opens up. behind the door is a tunnel. it leads to a room which is slightly flooded. there is a damaged statue to the side, which gives off a dim purple glow. the head appears to be hollow, and twisted around.
     22 
     23 when val gets close to the statue an oil slick from around the statue detaches and approaches val
     24 
     25 - val: casts sacred flame for damage
     26 - tana: turns into a bear, attacks with claws and bites the ooze to kill it
     27 
     28 now we are closer to the statue and see that the head has been screwed a little bit. snow climbs on top of it and unscrews the head to find it full of melted wax, like a jack-o-lantern. snow looks around the room but doesn't notice anything unusual. we go back up the tunnel and venture down the stairs.  we enter a dipped area with large pillars, and a giant snake skeleton. on the SE wall, we see the words "certain death this way" and an arrow pointing to the southern exit.
     29 
     30 we follow the death arrow into another corridor. at the end of the long corridor, around the corner we see a dead goblin and a headless statue of a nude woman surrounded by rubble. val digs through rubble and finds the head of the statue, it looks like two snakes. snow and val think that it is from the yuan-ti people. near the goblin are some pickaxes and tools, it looks like they were digging into the wall.
     31 
     32 snow find a couple of copper and a handful of human teeth in the goblin's pockets.
     33 
     34 we crawl down the tunnel to find _another_ nude woman statue with no head, and the head is the snake. at the end of the room is a single door and a double door. snow opens the single door to find another corridor with another door at the end. the double doors opens up to a larger tunnel heading to the east and the south, with candles floating at intervals.
     35 
     36 we head east and eventually come to an alcove with a carving of a bas relief sculpture of a heavyset man playing a harp. on the ground is a broken pole. stil approaches the sculpture and sees an inscription "gaze upon me with bronzed visage and secrets shall I reveal."
     37 
     38 tana squeezes into the alcove to stare at the sculpture but nothing happens. we decide to keep moving and come to another door, which opens to another corridor. we head south and go through another door. we enter a large room with a 30ft wide floor to ceiling map carved into the wall, and a 10ft square pit with a figure deep in the shadows of the 30ft deep pit. val calls down to the figure who asks to be helped up. snow drops down some hempen rope, the figure climbs up and thanks us for the help. he introduces himself as hallaeth garke, he is a revenant. he explains that his _friends_ came down several days ago, they had an argument and he was stabbed and tossed down the pit. he lifts his head and looks undead. guldur thinks he is telling the truth. he asks if we can help us find his _friends_ and he will give us the map they stole.
     39 
     40 snow looks at the carving on the wall, which is a really detailed map of undermountain and the 23 dungeon levels. next to third level is a button/bas relief of a flaming skull, 16 has one that looks like a comet, 23 (the bottom floor) has one with a tower which has a rune above it. each of these can be pressed.
     41 
     42 hallaeth walks over to the wall and presses the flaming skull, we hear a loud magical voice saying "gate access to skullport disabled". he presses the comet and the voice says "gate access to stardock from level 16 only". then he presses the tower and the voice says "gate access to halaster's tower from level 12 only". he goes over to the south wall, knocks on four different bricks, and another secret door opens. snow goes over to the other door in the room to find another corridor.
     43 
     44 hallaeth leads the way through the secret door. we reach the end of the corridor and another door, which is covered in gears and locks. we open the door and enter a large room with another statue. the statue is a life-size dwarf king, but from the neck is a deformed growth and his hands clasp a stone warhammer.
     45 
     46 stil notices that the king's hammer is a separate piece of stone. he turns it and the pedestal rises another 3 feet to expose a hollow with a gold replica of the circlet around the king's head. val takes the circlet and puts it on top of his pot helmet. we decide to take a short rest.
     47 
     48 val comes to learn that the circlet is a 'circlet of blasting'.
     49 
     50 suddenly we hear a roar from the next room, and three bugbears approach us.
     51 
     52 - snow: leaps at the closest bugbear with his claws but misses, then he jumps around the corner as guldur shouts for him to get out the way
