UnderDarkness

Deep gnome perspective

"Diary of a Mad Gnome" Voices… In and out of consciousness… Pains,sharp ones too. Sounds,turning of a key. To a door,a cell door. A thud,yelp and a scream! Fully awake now. Drow! Two of them to be exact, hauling a female svirfneblin out the cell with another in tow (i'm assuming after me),grabbing me up to follow them. As someone is yelling "There's too many of these damn svirfneblins in here. Feed them to the spiders!" I don't mind spiders,ridden one back in the day. There just slaves to them damned drow as are everything else. As we're being thrown in I notice the huge crowd gathered around. Probably betting on who'll survive. Maybe we two can work together…perhaps not. One of the three giant spiders pounced atop of her sinking its fangs into her chest and spinning her up in it's web. Feeling vibrations from the webbing that alerts me to the greater threat and with some quick thinking,I hand him a few deserving magic missles in the face! Me,Ba Ravarr sorcerer supreme going toe to toes with giant spiders. But he was too over whelming and just before he bit me i notice a strange looking spider just beyond the fight that struck me as odd. Awaiting darkness and for Baravar to take me I suddenly wake in the chambers of a drow priestess commander Ilvara Mizzrym. Searing pains in my back,ankles and wrists along with iron binding rings grafted to me for her twisted entertainment. Donning me in her special suit,(which i defiantly tear off only to be stapled back to my skin),she asks of me how is it that a wreched gmome like me is casting magic? Ignoring her and playing along with her games I then spot a statue of Lolth with a pendant necklace that look like it could hold a spellgem. After hours of intense torture I'm back in my cell along with a number of others. Some jack hole has the nerve to come up ant start interigating me on what happened. Too tired to deal i find me a unoccupied pail and let darkness take me. 

The next few weeks were uneventful except that day I found a corelion gem estimated around ten gold pieces. Last work shift I befriended twin svirfneblin Topsy and Turvy and they showed me a hidden crack behind some storage in one of those hollowed out stalagtites. They seem to be on the up and up. Starting to get to know the other inmates. There's a pretty red hot demon bitch i'd liked to sink my teeth in here. Her tiefling ass is gonna get a real workout! All the others i can give two guanno about. Also looks like they've put a drow spy in here with us. I'll have to stay well away from him. Weeks of nightmares causing several of us to succumb to maddness. Caught me a case of infinate madness 93. Hours of blindness too didnt help any either. By the time my vision cleared up it was time to join the fray. Giant beetle incursion attacks the outer parts of the prison. Finally showing up a little too late to the fight and just in time for me to slay me a beetle. And in all the confusion them traitors,(to my cause in escaping),tucked tail and left without me! There will be dire consequences the next time i run into them two again,mark my words!

Noises…laughter…shouting! Waking up to yet another fine work cycle in this illustrious five star jail cell,I find myself completely and strangely rested. Today's the day I escape,I hope! Biding my time I watch the unfoldings of today's events with real understanding. As I let the group set up a situation where we can get moving,a fight breaks out in the foyer between,what did they say?,"Demons!" This is are moment! The diversion we need. We make our break out our cell and split up looking for our stuff and whatever will help our escape. Team blue found our equipment while my group,team gold, plunders our captive's personal quarters. And there's one place I have in mind,priestess commander Ilvara Mizzrym's room and her spell-gem pendant of Lolth! After further inspection of the surrounding rooms we meet back up with the group on our way to freedom or our demise.
