Battle Report: HERO QUEST

Months ago I played the eighth scenario of my rogue trader (Pulp Alley rules) campaign.

Background:

The Inquisitor was upset, the Necromancer lied to him.
There were not ruins of any temple of Morr in this place, just a suspicious dungeon inside a small mountain.
Sure many dangers were waiting them inside this labyrinth.
However they have no choice, they should try to venture inside and hope to finally find the truth about the hidden place of the Key of Graciale.
He felt that this was the right place to find what he was looking... the Key of Gracaile must really hidden in the ruins of a Morr Temple, but where?
Maybe the answer will be found inside the dungeon...

Arago: "My loyal companions... I know this is not the place we were looking, but despite the lies of the necromancer, I suspect this dungeon could be still useful for our quest...
Then we will venture inside, and anyone will dare to fight us will meet is own fate..."

meanwhile, inside the dungeon, in a darker room, sat the Chaos Sorcerer...
Chaos Sorcerer: "Then the murderers of my old friend are finally arrived... Fine, they will perish inside my dungeon... and the same doom will meet the fool adventurers that came before them... The Necromancer will be avenged, and I alone will conquest the Key of Graciale!"
