Flight of the Phoenix – Game Session – 001

Game summary for October 4, 2012, Flight of the Phoenix Spelljammer campaign; present PCs included Amothar Skyblade (elf fighter/mage), Orophin Calafalas (half-elf bard), Zirin (dracon swashbuckler), Zorn Seregon (psionicist) along with Elaina of Ptah (cleric) and Safana bent Anwar (sorceress).

The Legion of the Schwartz formed as a mercenary company hiring on as guardians and protectors of the space trade vessel, The Pisces.  Before departing, they hired henchman assistants, Elaina of Ptah and Safana bent Anwar to join them.

The Pisces is traveling from the crescent-shaped planet Ginsel in Greyspace to the Rock of Bral orbiting planet Glyth in Realmspace.  The team faces approximately 3 months of space travel including two passes through wildspace and a jaunt in the Phlogiston.

Two days out of Ginsel, Captain Robilard pointed out a pack of grey scavvers that slipped into the atmosphere while passing an asteroid.  He tasked the team with eliminating the pack to preserve the ship’s air supply.  The team tried several tactics including hurling sling stones and drifting out toward the beasts on a rope.  Zorn hit one scavver with project force and injured it.  When it drew blood, they realized the scavvers could be attracted to meat.  Zorn then used animate object to use a rope and hook to snag a scavver for Amothar to harpoon.  They then used similar hooks to fish and catch the scavvers and kill them.

A few days later, the ship slowed from spelljamming speeds once again as another ship was spotted.  Crewman Faris shook his head and spit as he realized the incoming vessel was crewed by tinker gnomes!  The gnome ship tied off and trading ensued.  They offered to sell miniature giant space hamsters, but the party declined.  Captain Robilard did purchase a steam-powered rapid drink machine brewing some strange, strong, black, hot beverage.  Soon after, the gnomes departed.
