Dungeon of Horror Marathon Campaign

So Friday I mentioned we were planning a 12 hour marathon campaign. Well the total campaign lasted around 4 hours of game play and 2 hours for breaks. So 6 hours total. And it the end the campaign ended with a very anticlimactic explosion do to a misfired fireball...

I ended up controlling a bard and fighter on top of the Big Bad.

We all woke up on a beach surrounded by the only survivors of an undead rampage. We spent Levels 1-15 exploring the island and freeing the island from the undead taint. The only notable creatures being a zombie dragon, a skeleton dragon, a zombie dracolisk, a werewolf clan who were partnered with a vampire family to try and keep the undead at bay from the last remaining humans.

The Cavalier, Oracle, and Sorcerer lasted through out the campaign. My bard died around level 6 liking 1 XP to being lvl 7. The worst part was it she died in a trap the party had set-up for the Dracolisk. Then my fighter died fighting the 2 Dragons right after leveling to lvl 14. Got reduced to -3 by their attacks and couldn't stabilize, the oracle was tied up keeping the sorcerer alive. When they hit lvl 15, do to some good role-playing by the party they won the ability to rebuild their characters as Gestalts. They became Cavalier/Paladin, Oracle/Rogue, and Sorcerer/Monk.

They then decided they were ready to brave the mansion that they knew housed the Final Boss. When they encountered a group of zombies and skeletons the sorcerer decided to cast Fireball. Well he forgot he had cast grease a few times to cause the majority of them to fall. Well the way we play it grease is highly flammable... the problem was the fire caused a chain reaction that blew up the mansion. We decided to give them the XP to go up to lvl 20. Then they had the big fight with the Lvl 20 Human Lich Wizard and his elites.

Whom they stomped... into a paste... The worst part is they ran out of spells before I did... they defeated the Lich first then took out his elites and destroyed his phylactery.

All in all it was fun and exciting.
