Purple Mountain VI: Well of Stars in playtest

Undine Queen by Ryan Rhodes
Today we started our internal playtest of the Well of Stars. This is the sixth level of the Purple Mountain megadungeon. We had four players today who played:

Human inquisitor of Gerana 6 (Thomas Boxall)
Human sorcerer 6 (Michael Vanderstelt)
Obitu fighter 3/rogue 3 (Patrick Kossmann)
Qi'tar tactician 6 (Mark Gedak)

Jeff isn't doing a lot of talking in the group. He tends to speak by telepathy within the collective as much as possible. We botched up some of the initial investigation and ended up going to Purple Mountain by foot instead of by teleportation which slowed things down. It was also reveal that the inquisitor is prejudiced against psionic creatures so he is no longer part of my collective. We killed some harpies, derro and met an undine queen who was later eaten by crysmals.

Pretty smooth session, no player character deaths yet. I suspect there will be though because we do not have much in the way of healing in our group.
Here is the character that I am using for this playtest.
