Pukana La’Aina – Polynesian D&D 3.5 – Game Session 6

Game summary for June 17, 2010; present characters included Kanaka Kohola (darfellan storm druid), Palakelei (human martial warrior), Palu (human ranger), Puinsai (cecaelia warder), and Vollintine (human berserker).

Keiki Manuahis pushed on toward the heart of the inshon-infested swamp and was accosted by a dedicated force attempting to drive them out. As the inshon approached, Kanaka unleashed an entangle spell, slowing several inshon and entangling two dire frogs. The rest of the team took good advantage of the delay by drinking their anti-toxins in preparation for the approaching venomous inshon. Blood spilled quickly as the groups finally clashed. The bulk of the inshon came in from the swamp side, while another flanked around the back. The dire frogs struggled in the grasping weeds while the party killed inshon after inshon. Puinsai and Palakelei provided assistance to Kanaka as the flanking inshon bandit finally made it around and pressured the druid. By the time the dire frogs freed themselves from the plants, Keiki Manuahis had dispatched all of the inshon.

Eager to find more inshon blood to spill, the party charged deeper and found the ruins of an old temple. Protecting the ruins were an inshon warlock, an inshon brawler, a venomous inshon, a brutal feral inshon, and a mysterious frog cultist priest. Puinsai charged forward to tackle the warlock and take him out of the fight. Palu and Palakelei unleashed havoc upon the venomous inshon, and Vollintine took up the fight against the feral inshon. The frog cultist laid a curse upon the party and a prayer upon friends and foes. Puinsai found herself in trouble when the warlock cursed her strength, allowing the inshon to slip free.

The venomous inshon went down in a spray of gore beneath the onslaught of Keiki Manuahis, and the warlock cursed Puinsai even further, making her awkward, clumsy, and unskilled. The frog cultist blessed his allies and protected them with a legion’s shield of faith. Kanaka established his presence by blasting the feral inshon and inshon warlock with a steam jet, scalding the warlock to death. Enraged, the feral inshon grabbed hold of Palu and began rending and raking, disemboweling the ranger. Puinsai limped back to her team and engaged the brawler along with Vollintine and Kanaka. The storm druid unleashed a molten blast on the brawler, encrusting it in hardening lava. Palakelei brought the fight to the frog cultist who had been dropping blistering flame strikes and other deadly spells upon the party. The cultist surrounded himself with a whirling ring of blades, which cut deeply into Palakelei. The martial warrior landed several solid blows of his own, however. As the feral inshon and brawler died, Kanaka moved in on the cultist and began a prayer to call lightning. The cultist launched a final darkbolt at Palakelei, but the shot went wide. Kanaka’s prayer ended, and charring electricity crackled from the sky, burning the cultist to cinders.

Keiki Manuahis spread out and searched the ruins, discovering the cultist here was following orders to recruit the inshon for a cult operating out of Ashenford! The group tended to their wounds and reincarnated Palu into a Kanaka human, again. With that, the team prepares to return to Ashenford to root out this den of evil!
