-Two new PCs show up: a cleric named Panini Penguini ("Like Chef Boyardi crossed with Mario") and Figerfel Mufflestauffer, hapless halfling with a heart of gold.
-The PCs meet Hopkins, the ghostly librarian of Hell's Convent. Conversation with Hopkins reveals that:
-Gabriel Tycho (Son of Moonville's mayor, first mentioned by the Lucky Brigand in Session 3) has been wandering the halls and conversing with the spirits of Hell's Convent since he was a boy. He is also the creator of the murals painted throughout the Convent, which illustrate stories told to him by the ghost of Anton Phantom.
-Anton Phantom is in control of Gabriel and had him kidnap Illyria Moonrider, believing her to be the reincarnation of Persephone (High Priestess of the Sybelline Sisterhood and the woman who cursed Anton Phantom and his men to undeath).
-Gabriel is found. A trial is convened, The Abominable Anton Phantom presiding. The PCs give violent testimony, and Gabriel is killed.

Session 9 (04.26.2010) "The Missing Mountain"

The party is now split three ways. Panini Penguini is killed by Little People. The party is now split two ways. Figerfel finds a door that giggles. Bioluminescent Fungi are discovered, along with eight crystal columns which contain pictograms depicting the seven mountains of the Moonstone Mountain range. However, an eighth mountain is also depicted, one which corresponds to no known landmark. The floor descends. An Elf named Vittorio introduces himself. Figerfel returns to solid form, lacking clothing or gear, and licks a shroom, resulting in a glowing, naked halfling which provides dim illumination in a 15' radius. Little People appear. The party is surrounded!
