Age of Worms Adventure Path – Game Session 98

Game summary for October 30, 2008; present characters included Eolas Windmaster (moon elf duskblade), Lyrin Sinbal (simian incantatrix/ring sage/warmage), Morak Beardfist (shield dwarf fighter/rage cleric), Ranulph Wathbater (human berserker/fighter/hellreaver/paladin of freedom/rogue), Saedd West (human fighter/pious templar/wormhunter), and Syvarius Strongbow (moon elf archer-ranger/peerless archer).

Ascending another level, the Mercenaries discovered a room filled with Kyuss high-knights. One, a female, provoked a severe response from Balakarde’s spirit. The apparition manifested and howled in rage as he recognized her as Maralee, his sister!

The team quickly engaged the undead knights in pitched melee. Saedd and Ranulph took the front line while the knights closed in. Saedd laid into Maralee with several vicious swipes, but she quickly retaliated and slaughtered him in his stride. Ranulph faired somewhat better, able to slip into the back of the room to nurse the horrendous wounds the knights dealt him. Meanwhile, a hail of arrows filled the air, and bursts of arcane and divine fire rained down on the knights. The undead pressed their advantage and rocked the Mercenaries back on their heels, but through fearsome swordplay and an unending ranged assault of fire and bow, the undead began to fall.

Lyrin staggered the creatures with a blast on arcane sunlight, rendering a couple blind and enraging the others. Eolas channeled arcane fire through his blade and turned knight after knight into a ash-filled tin can. Syvarius slew one of the creatures on the stairs, and Morak firmly planted his dwarven self in front of Lyrin to protect the caster. After a pitched battle, the undead were all defeated and Saedd returned from the grave.

Ahead lies a massive pair of silver doors writhing with metallic worms. From this height, only the roof could lie beyond. Are the Mercenaries ready to engage the Wormgod in a fight to save the very Realms?
