(This is a continuation of a story that started here: Lini and Merisiel take down Pillbug (0.2)).

After their humiliating defeat in the hallways of the runelords, Lini and Merisiel were determined to do better this time. Merisiel would discard less, and Lini would use her cures wisely.

Lini started in the hall of sloth, and her magic spyglass immediately revealed Xyoddin the henchman zombie rogue. She had a Holy Light available, and her animal wasn't feeling slothful, so it was an easy kill. With a blessing, she was able to close the location. It was a great start.

Merisiel headed for the hall of pride, and worked it for quite a while. She burned her holy candle to gain 3 hours. She defeated an ogre, and mostly just tossed aside a bunch of basic equipment.

Lini had gone to the hall of greed for a bit, but then joined Merisiel in pride so she could cast a mass cure. After that, Merisiel went over to gluttony so she could get the full use of her Revelation Quill. Lini's eagle revealed While there, she discovered Azaven, the undead lich necromancer. She had another holy light ready, so after Merisiel had picked up a blessing of Gozreh, Lini defeated Azaven. Merisiel had temporarily closed gluttony, so he could only flee to the Hall of Greed. Two locations were closed.

Lini joined Merisiel in gluttony, to pick up the wand of treasure hunting that the quill had revealed. Then Lini's magic spyglass revealed Jordimandus, and the gals set themselves up to be able to strike him at any time. Lini went back to greed, to temporarily close it while Merisiel beat up Jordimandus. She easily evaded the puny goblin warchanter he summoned for defense. Since he had nowhere to run, he was really defeated, which felt great.

Merisiel's emerald codex provided her with a Detect Magic, Scrying, and Fiery Weapon. All would have been great earlier, but by the time she got them, they didn't help much.

As soon as Lini arrived at greed, her eagle spotted Ordikon. After a brief pause to find a Swipe spell, Lini took him on. Fortunately, he stayed dead, and she was able to close another location.

A bit later, Lini found Azaven. With a couple blessings and her animal, she had no trouble dodging his first attack, only having to discard 1 card from her deck. With a Holy Light, a couple blessings, and her tiger, she threw 3d10+2d12+d6+d4+9 at him. Victory! There were 4 hours remaining.

Lini was very grateful for her eagle's ability to scout ahead, and unlike in their previous attempt, her attack spells came out mostly one at a time, when needed. Merisiel also had good luck pulling weapons and blessings when she needed them. Lini was also proud to have defeated 2 of the 3 villains (one of them twice). She had been feeling a bit overshadowed by Merisiel in the combat department, so this was a nice ego boost.

Lini decided to keep Orikon's staff for herself, giving up her trusty old spyglass (figuring the eagle made it less necessary). She also got her Abadon blessing back from Merisiel, who kept the new Gozreh instead (to help close locations). Merisiel also gave up her sages journal to keep the wand of treasure hunting. And of course they returned the blessings they had loaned to each other before the scenario.

They removed 9 boons and 4 banes.
