The Cursed: Baeloth's Welcome

[Part of the Cursed story line]

Sir Erland came to in a strange, circular arena of the Black Pits with the most basic of weapons available to him. With him were five women, equally equipped, who looked like they had been through hell. Little did he know that Party Girl, Yuria of Londor, Lu Lingqi, Elizabeth and Catharina were veteran survivors of the Darkest Dungeon.

Before any introductions could be made, a swarm of tasloi portalled into the opposite end of the arena and attacked with crude spears but they were easily cut down by the six disoriented but very competent gladiators.

"Congratulations," came the booming voice of a genie who appeared before them. "You have passed the qualification round. Meet your new master..."

Equal parts cool and scary...

"Hello!" came a shrill, campy voice from behind the menacing djinn. It was a drow mage with a large grin. "I am Baeloth the entertainer, and you are my new toys! I'm sure the crowd is going to loooove you. Come, let us show you around. You need to eat, sleep and prepare for the games ahead! This is going to be fun!"

Insight: In Baldur's Gate, tasloi always appear in numbers but they are just experience fodder for the party and rate low on the threat scale.
