    Games are on Monday night sometime after 5:30PM at World's Best Comics,
    9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

    This time we had two cheap pizzas from Costco, one combination, and one
    plain cheese.

    ++++ START OF SESSION ++++

    This time we had a quorum, but it was sub-optimal.

    (Note: If we have a similar quorum we "may" have a boardgame night

    Our Party was now trapped behind the massive stone block that had
    killed the aforementioned dead non-Player characters (NPC). This left
    only a few options on how to get out. 1) Using the alien technology communicators, and hopefully help (and escape) could be teleported in
    or 2) Prayer to one of several of the party's gawds.

    I was fully prepared to deal with choise number 1. Numrendir and some
    other high level NPCs would have teleported in grabbed the party and
    teleported out. Or, if I were in a funk I would have had them
    teleport in some pick-axes and shovels. But that was not to be.

    Turns out the rescued Gnome (from the Ogre's larder a few weeks back),
    whom we decided to call Gnomex, turned out to be a Cleric and his
    prayer had a chance of divine intervention. There is always basic one
    percent chance a person's gawd will intervene, with a three percent
    benefit if you're a Cleric and another five percent for the first
    attempt. There is even an additional ten percent benefit if you're a
    Gnome cleric (but the result has to benefit the Gnome community).
    There are negative modifiers such a negative five percent for each
    prior intervention, but that did not apply.

    An "02" was rolled on a hundred-sided die, which meant Gnomex' Prayer
    did not need to meet the Gnomish benefit proviso, although it will be
    counted against future intervention chances.

    So the massive stone ceiling lifted up on its own.

    The party made an exit, picking up every last gold piece they could
    find from the mass of flattened red goo. (In hindsight, I should
    should have used Lot's wife as an example and turned them to pillars

    The last event of note was Jacko took the Slobgoblin prisoner and
    shoved it down the fifty foot pit with with spikes. Fortunately due to
    his alignment, Jacko does not get negative honor points for "unjustly
    slaying prisoners who have yielded".

    The party left this dungeon and made the trek into the town of Nulb. I
    even rolled mightily on the encounter table to no avail, so they made
    into town without further incident.

    ++++ OUT OF CHEESE ERROR ++++
