Pukana La’Aina – Polynesian D&D 3.5 – Game Session 5

Game summary for June 10, 2010; present characters included Kanaka Kohola (darfellan storm druid), Palakelei (human martial warrior), Palu (human ranger), Puinsai (human warder), and Vollintine (human berserker).

Divine energy surged up from the earth and through the druid’s hands, reincarnating Palu as a human! No longer was he of the Panahi tribe, however, but of the Kanaka. Although somewhat disturbed to be in a different body, Palu was happy to be alive.

The Keiki Manuahis pressed deeper into the fetid swamp, still battling the stinging insects. They soon uncovered an inshon raiding party consisting of three bandits, a brawler, and four dire frogs! The team moved in for the attack and laid waste among the creatures. Kanaka electrocuted several while Puinsai tangled with a massive frog. Palakelei put his cascading strike to good use, pummeling the monstrous beasts. It was Palu, however, whose fierce hatred for the inshon led him to the most brutal and effective attacks. His twin macas carved a bloody swathe through the ranks as Vollintine arrived to help mop up the rest.

Palu had broken some of the obsidian in his weapons during the fight and sat down to repair them. After an hour of work, another group of inshon arrived and attacked! This group was assembled for war and brought elemental dire frogs, a warlock, and a venomous inshon along with bandits and brawlers. Water boiled around the feet of one of the frogs, while ice crystals formed around the other. The warlock unleashed an onslaught of sickening blasts while the poisonous secretions of the bandits began taking its toll among the party. Vollintine found himself beset by the vicious venomous inshon who injected him with a strong paralytic poison. Vollintine was able to shrug off some of the effects but was hampered by sluggish movement for the rest of the fight. Kanaka cast menacing tentacles and waded into the fray toe-to-toe putting the glowing spear of Auku to deadly use!

Palakelei put himself in harm’s way, using his tremendous defensive skills to occupy several of the inshon. Puinsai found herself in trouble flanked by two inshon bandits. Using numerous sneak attacks, they brought her down, and one killed her on the ground before closing in on Palakelei. Palu had not recovered from the first encounter and had to fall back to nurse his wounds. He used the time to move around to the side and came into the fight with a vengeance! In moments, the warrior inshons all lay dead, but the frogs and warlock remained. The warlock continued firing sickening blasts but could not withstand the concentrated might of Keiki Manuahis. The team then fell upon the frogs and finished the battle.

With the fight completed, Kanaka began to summon the powers of the earth and reincarnate Puinsai. After an hour of ritual, a new body formed for Puinsai, that of a cecaelia!
