Episode 89 - Double, Double, Toil and Trouble
Anna starts off this session as the DM.
Someone claps and steps out of the shadows. She's made of wood and metal, colored black and gold.
She looks the group up and down. She touches Evil Diath's face and goes, "Aren't you just a tall drink of something strong?"
She likes their style. She asks them if they're going to finish the waitress off. Evil Diath stabs Martha to death.
She tells the group that they can be her followers. Evil Evelyn wants to be the leader. A fight breaks out.
The Sewn Sisters
Chris takes over in the DM seat.
The group had made a deal with the hags. The heroes will give them hair (so that they can make more clones). In exchange, the hags will give them:
- Mr. Fox's spectacles.
- A resurrection scroll to bring back Evelyn.
- X the Mystic's Arcane Grimoire, a tome that was allegedly stolen from Shemeshka.
The hags are about to speak, when something appears in the cauldron. It's the evil little girl that the awful crew put in the bag last session. 
The hags want to eat her. The group stops them. The hags put the little girl to sleep and place her in a cage.
There's discussion of further trades.
Two of the hags leave to obtain the items. This will take 1 day. The group will have to wait here. The hags split up their tasks:
- Peggy: Goes to get the spectacles and the book.
- Baggy Nana: Goes to fetch the scroll.
- Widow Groat: Stays with the group to keep an eye on them.
Groat says, "We are the Sewn Sisters." She pulls out some red thread. "Snip snip." "Stitch stitch."
Something else appears in the cauldron. It's the remains of Shmon Shmeena.
She tells them about the plane of Gehenna. Then she tells them about the Books of Keeping, tomes that contain the truename of every yugoloth in existence.
The group quietly discusses and idea. They want to find the book that has Shemeshka's truename in it. With it, they can have power over her.
Strix asks Groat if she knows any truenames. The hag offers some for another trade. What can the group offer? They go through their equipment. Some of their ideas:
Widow Groat shares a secret. Widow Groat whispers to Diath that when Shemeshka mediated the deal between the Skizziks and the Lorcathas, Shemeshka kept a piece of his valuable, ancient soul. It's locked in a box in her house.
"Would you like me to bring you the box?", she asks."The Box for your womb."
Widow Groat gives them time to discuss it.
Paultin walks over and watches Groat chop up the corpse of John Cena.
Suddenly, the hag reels. When Umpox was slain, the hag eye was destroyed. It is linked to her, and thus she is temporarily blinded.
Evelyn realizes that she can talk to her dad, who passed a way long ago. Evelyn flies to a glittering temple on top of a hill.
In the temple are people cradling spectral babies. Watching over the scene is a 12 foot tall green angel. A planetar.
Her father tells her, "It doesn't look like you may be here very long. You're just here for a short visit."
She flies around with her dad. She asked him why he never came back. She never knew what happened.
While in Undermountain trying to bring light to the darkness, Evelyn's father was killed by a vampire named Karesta Delvingstone. It sounds like his body is still down there.
Back in the Material Plane, Groat's eyesight is returning. The group notices a strange, giant door.
After 1 full day, Baggy returns. She walks through the wall and is holding a blackened scroll tube. "One resurrection scroll", she says.
While the group is in the waffle hut, they overhear the two hags having an argument about the destruction of the soul bag. They are angry at the awful crew.
The group overhears the hags scheming. They get the sense that all three hags are plotting against one another.
- Diath: Spectacles.
- Paultin: Resurrection scroll. It is very warm. It was stolen from a cleric in the bowels of the Nine Hells.
- Strix: X the Mystic's Arcane Grimoire.
Taking advantage of the chaos, Diath frees the caged little girl and looks for a secret door. Strength check to open it. Paultin rolls 17. He makes it.
They appear in the outskirts of Port Nyanzaru, emerging from a ruined ziggurat in the old city section.
The little girl that they freed thinks the group is the awful crew. She steals the spectacles from Diath and runs into the city. End of session.
