Session 5

The gang started where they left off, in room 24, middle left of the image. After losing Esme, Balthazar and Opal dispatched the Shrieking Woman. As the bound corpse went up in flames, the two heard a woman yelling up Another escaped slave from the ship; this one an amateur alchemist named Elsbeth who was travelling to the next town when the ship was taken.


The three together continue their exploration. Opting for the mid east door first, Opal overcomes a superior lock and the group heads down the corridor to find themselves back in room 24 where they decide next to take the northeast portcullis. It turns out to be stuck, but Balthazar forces it open and they continue.


Entering the room, they are rushed by a nine foot tall Gorilla Skeleton. Combat ensues. Elsbeth meets it halfway and eats a near deadly blow as the group struggles. Balthazar and Opal chip away at the beast but it is Elsbeth, on the verge of collapse who scores a final mighty blow with the warhammer once carried by Esme. With that, the monster collapses into a pile of bones and the group searches the room.


On the far wall, behind the Skeleton is a large chest, carefully Balthazar opens it.


Inside is a set of full plate armor, worth a fortune itself and laying on a pile of 400 pieces of copper. The group declare it time to camp, Balthazar immediately dons the new armor. Balthazar sees they won’t be able to carry the money on themselves without dropping some gear. To solve the issue, he wraps the chest in his fishing net and ties the net to one of their 10 foot poles so he and Elsbeth can carry it between them. Rest happens.


A dog sized spider wanders in, they take it out and continue east. Go through 14 and 25 without incident, checking the southeast archway first, around the first turn a group of giant mosquitos fly right into them, pursued by another gorilla skeleton. The bugs go down easy and the gorilla does not nearly kill anyone. Coming out in 25 they realize they will have to backtrack to 24 and check the north exit.


Gang gets in there, part of the ceiling collapses as they go down the corridor, they hit a couple more doors but ultimately it’s another dead end.


Back to 24, backtrack toward 13 but this time staying on the south hall. Before getting to the south entrance of 13 they encounter a pair of swinging blades crossing the corridor. Now burdened with the treasure chest from earlier the group stops to consider what they should do.


Elsbeth suggests she time the blades and jump across them, then look for a way to shut the blades off from the other side. She executes the plan by getting across in the moment the blades swing out. On the other side she checks the door, discovers 13, recognizes it is the room the got into this section by. Checking the next turn of the hall, she finds two deep holes in the wall. Sticking in her own ten foot pole, one of the blades stops. She sticks her crowbar in the other hall and the group continues, going north via the far west corridor.


The exit west is a dead end and they pick a lock to get into room two where they find a fountain of healing water, realizing what a labyrinth this place is, Balthazar begins marking the doors as they go.


Exploration goes on, they go first south from 31 to find a Centipede no less than 15 ft long and thick. Besting the beast together at the doorway, it falls. They take a look at the room without moving further. They see an old, ruined chain shirt in the center of the floor as well as noticing largish square holes cut in the floor and high ceiling. Suspicious, they shove the large centipede corpse toward the center of the room, triggering most of the floor to collapse about 15 feet revealing a chest. Working together, the group manages to retrieve it and haul it up.

80 copper await them. A little disappointed not to find more money and armor, the group notice the chesty itself is much sturdier than the one they’ve been carrying so they transfer everything over and rig up the new chest.


With that, they go north to 29. Finding a locked door they check out the rest of the room and find the bookshelf to be a hidden door, passing through it they come to a T junction.


We called the game there.

Diet and weight loss

Studies have shown that just about any diet will result in weight loss, if it’s one that someone can follow.1,2 Esteemed Yale physician and nutrition expert David Katz examined over 58 popular diets and found that the most successful in terms of both weight loss and nutrition consist of “real food.” By that he means plants, whole grains, nuts and seeds, as well as meat (ideally, from animals that ate plants). Basically, foods closer to nature. The other key is minimizing processed foods, including sugars and flours.3

Without realizing it, I followed Katz’s advice: I ate mostly fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, and dairy. I occasionally had whole grains like quinoa or farro, even rice or corn chips. And, of course, an occasional treat. But I had sworn off sugars and flours, for the most part.
Behavior change and weight loss

It’s hard to keep track of how much we eat. But a lot of research shows that when we keep track of intake, we eat less. This is called self-monitoring, and why writing down what I ate and weighed helped me.4,5,6 There are so many ways to do this nowadays: from the old-school paper-and-pencil method, to apps like MyFitnessPal, or the Weight Watchers points system.7

Another key approach: forgive your failures. Studies show that people who “mess up” their diet plan and then “give up” end up gaining, while people who forgive themselves and move on continue to lose. It’s called self-acceptance.8,9 Look, we’re human. Birthdays, office parties, weddings, random movie nights: they happen, and we celebrate by having the amazing chocolate cake, or Betsy’s famous buffalo chicken dip, waaaay too much champagne, or buttered popcorn. Expect this, enjoy, and then move on.
Exercise and weight loss

Most major weight loss is followed by weight gain, as people revert to their old habits. But, some folks manage to keep it off. How do they do it? Researchers have found that maintaining a healthy diet, ongoing self-monitoring, plenty of self-acceptance, as well as a high level of physical activity are all associated with keeping the pounds off.10

When I feel like I’m slipping, I start logging again. Nowadays, I use an online fitness app on my phone to more easily keep track of my daily food intake. Red wine and dark chocolate are always in stock in our house, and that’s OK. Exercise is important, too, but in my book, any and all physical activity counts. Two or three workouts a week help me maintain muscle tone and cardiovascular fitness. If I can’t get to the gym, I run. If I can’t run, I do something at home, like five minutes of in-place kickboxing moves, or dancing around the living room like a crazy person with my kids. I take the stairs wherever I am as often as possible. I use a carry basket at the grocery store, and switch from arm to arm while I shop: biceps curls! Hey, it all counts.
Staying at a healthy weight for life

The old adage is “eat less, exercise more,” and this is still true, to some extent. But human beings are psychologically and sociologically complex creatures, and that adage is a lot harder to follow than it sounds. For average adults who do not have contributing medical or psychological issues, a nutritious plant-based diet low in processed foods and carbohydrates, consistent self-monitoring of intake and progress, forgiving oneself when expected lapses occur, all combined with regular physical activity, can result in weight loss for life.
