Dang... go gauntlet power!
Dorgath will beat up the last plaguebearer with his axe, fists, and feet
Carrow will shoot the last plaguebearer if Dorgath fails to eliminate it.
Throg will Lightning Bolt the plaguebearer before anyone else can do anything.
"A bit of over kill there"
"You can never be careful with Chaos!"
"It's not like I can save it."
Ty stands back (if he is coherent enough to do so) not wanting to get caught up in the blast...
Throg blasts the last plaguebearer with lightning. As soon as the daemon falls, the floor of the pit rumbles and launches itself, along with all of you, up toward the ceiling. Rows of spikes project downward, and the floor below your feet rises up to meet them...
-Throg takes 4 damage.
-Revaethan avoids the spikes.
-Dorgath takes 4 damage.
-Kelgar avoids the spikes.
-Tomas avoids the spikes.
-Jekaena takes 6 damage.
-Ty avoids the spikes.
-Carrow takes 1 damage.
The air around you seems to shimmer and becomes distorted. When the effect fades, you see ghostly runes wrapping themselves around you. Standing at the back of the room is a hulking, disfigured man wearing a robe lined with magical symbols. This must be Utronicus. But to get to him, you'll have to do something about the beasts of Nurgle that stand in the way...
Tomas and Throg* discern the nature of the spell that Utronicus has prepared. Until Utronicus is dead, his curse does damage over time to everyone in the party. Additionally, if anyone in the party is reduced to 0 Wounds, two things will happen.
-The fallen victim of the curse will be die and will be considered to be taking plague damage at the time of death, which means you permanently lose 1 Toughness.
-The corpse of the victim will spawn nurglings until the adventurer is resurrected or the body is completely destroyed. So kill him quickly and don't die.
*Throg has Arcane Knowledge and was able to comprehend Utronicus' spell. This was not planned. I didn't even initially plan on letting him use Bysshan's altar, but he successfully persuaded him and happened to roll on the tables such that he gained Arcane Knowledge and Mindless. Tzeentch being possibly the most mind/knowledge/magic-focused of the Chaos gods in the lore (although maybe Slaanesh fits too? I dunno), this feels like it should be deliberate. He used an altar of Tzeentch and the changes made to him both affected his mind. But I really did use the tables. Just thought it was interesting. It doesn't matter anyway: Tomas rolled perfectly on this one.
"Jakaena, protect yourself!"
Dorgath throws a Firebomb at the beasts of Nurgle then tries to hack his way to Utronicus.
How many Nurgle Beasts?
Ty joins Dorgath in his attack, trying to spike-dance his way to the Priest of Nurgle...
Oops. Six of them.
Carrow will fire his last 3 Arrows of Death at Utronicus
Then pull his chaos sword to join the mele
I prioritize healing people and try to bash some Nurgles if it presents itself

Ty takes a hit off of a Heal-Itt potion and continues his attacks...
Dorgath could have sworn that tucking in his beard was part of Being A Dwarf 101, but presses on with the attack in trying to get to Utronicus. If he can, he'll throw some Flash Powder at the Nurgle beasts too.
Throg will keep biting / kicking / slashing things. If he can get close enough to Utronicus, he'll use his Might Axe / Chalice combo on him.
Ty nervously figits as he contemplates life, the universe, and everything...
Carrow will try the arrows again
