Pigsnot [Sessions #1-5]
Proceeding south to the CRYPT OF THE OLD GUARD, Pigsnout awakened the Captain of the Old Guard and the tidal elf skeletons under his command from their sarcophagi. After a brief skirmish, Rosmita Stout cast charm on the Captain of the Old Guard, whereupon hostilities ceased. Following his advise, they returned back the way they came and headed for the LIBRARY STORAGE ROOM, losing Rosmita along the way. A tunnel dug into the back of the room led to the WART’ODE TUNNELS, where Lightfingers vanished. After a quick encounter with a Kypseli, Hogwash falls for a pit trap leading to the PIT OF THE DYING where Snizzle the Cleric of Kroakatoa was quick to pounce. Though Meldor and Pigsnout tried to save her, the mad cleric’s thunderwave killed her.
After surveying the WART’ODE ENCAMPMENT from an overlook, the trio stumbled upon the DRAGON’S LAIR in the aftermath of Bhardor Silvertongue and Dishrag the Brave’s ill-fated attempt at dragonslaying. They drew the dragon’s attention but it choked on Bhardor’s arm as it inhaled to use its breath weapon. Pigsnout is mentioned by name in Dandylion Discord‘s celebrated ballad, The Vengeance of Bhardos
Climbing down from their ledge, they explored the SOUTH WATCH CAVERN until accidentally drewthe attention of the WART’ODE ENCAMPMENT. The Wart’odes pursued them into the tunnels where they were captured and brought to the CAGES.
Pigsnout has been missing since his capture. It is possible he was sacrificed to War’t.
Pigsnot [Sessions #36-46]
A second use of the Pigsnout husk occurred when he was ejected from a wyldstorm portal that resulted from a tortle magic user’s post mortem spell in Obscurus’ magical LIBRARY. As before, he had no memory of where he’d been previously, but was certain he was now in the wrong body! He also seemed to.think his name was Pigsnot instead of Pigsnout. Eondul the Human Wizard, Nellson Williams the red Tiefling Artificer with a robotic left arm and his steel defender gorilla Cupcake, Nikolas the brass Dragonborn Fighter, and Lightfingers the Elf Rogue were also ejected from the wyldstorm portal. They opted to join the party of Acindor the Human Fighter, Nathan Garney the Cleric of Everly, Kudac the Half-Orc Cleric of Baldnoggin, Meldor Ironforge the Dwarf Wizard, Dumplin Ages the Halfling Barbarian and Shelby the Rakshasa Sorcerer.
The goddess Canon then appeared and charged them with opening the Water Portal on CAERULEUM and transported them to the TEMPLE OF WANJO.
During an altercation between Shelby and Davroar Hollyshield the Cleric of Moriarty Lightfingers opened an accursed book resulting in an ominous-sounding gong.
Pigsnot and his comrades were immediately forced to combat an army of ghouls in a running battle through the TEMPLE OF WANJO. Escaping the undead, they scouted out the WAR’TODE ENCAMPMANT which guarded CAERULEUM’s WATER PORTAL to FARRAGO. As part of a bold plan to reach the and activate the Portal, Pigsnot and several others made an agreement with Shelby, inadvertently entering a contract with the rakshasa and his outsider lord Pazuzu.
Atop the PORTAL PLATFORM, Pigsnot fought bravely against their War’tode foes, but then found himself teleported down to the ENCAMPMENT below when Davroar Hollysword cast the Glory of Moriarty, sending the battle into further chaos. Worse still, he’d been teleported into one of the prisoner cages. Freeing himself with hard effort, he immediately made his way back to the PLATFORM, knowing that the Portal offered him the only chance at surviving the chaos they’d stirred up.
Unfortunately, the zombie tyrannosaurus and the froghemoth believed by Snizzle the War’tode Ckeric of Kroakatoa to be the avatar of his volcano god impeded his escape. After being buried beneath the bodies of Big Big Boss Gilderwart and two fr’ogres, he was magically transported via a magical arrow to the belt cage of Bel Do’riehn the the Betrayer, half-goblin former Sister of Shettebrek, who brought him and others she’d captured through the Portal. After she’d scolded all of the adventurers for opening the Portal and kickstarting the Prophecy of the Starkiller, she departed.
After a brief rest in the SERVICE PORTAL CHAMBER, Pigsnot and the others trekked to PORTAL BEACH HARBOR where they took passage aboard the …. As luck would have it, the vessel they chose was in possession of mimics stolen from the Farrago Royal Marines. After a brief pursuit, they escaped and landed on CLAW ISLAND, where they were immediately escorted to ROSE COLISEUM.
Gilgamesh made note of their lateness and tossed them into a game of Capture the Flag, splitting the party into two opposing teams. Under the leadership of Avindr Drakeel the Air Genasi Sorcerer, Pigsnot’s team won.
