Tonight we explored the keep a little further. We actually did a little bit of tactics this time. We fell back and range struck a slow slime. Well, until our magic user was a little too slow.
My Warlock is turning out to be quite powerful. Usually, there are a bunch of one hit to kill minions that are associated with a boss monster. I found out that I could curse a minion, watch it die easily, and then gain 4 temporary hit points. These hit points last until the encounter is over and they accumulate. While my AC is not the best, the temporary hit points could be a good substitute.
Our evil Dungeon Master was unsuccessful in killing our party off this time!
