Carrion Crown Adventure Path – Game Session – 005

Game summary for March 21, 2013, Carrion Crown Adventure Path campaign, The Haunting of Harrowstone adventure; PCs included Amras Amandill (half-elf inquisitor), Dinendal Ironbow (elf ranger), Gnok Thatek (dwarf monk), and Stoella Carter (human evoker).

The team quickly left the scene of the vandalized statue and sought to do research at the town hall.  Therein they offended Councilman Muricar and were run off.  They then had brunch at The Laughing Demon tavern.  Stoella then went to visit Father Grimburrow at the temple of Pharasma but was unable to secure access to the church’s library.  The team then learned through Kendra of The Unfurling Scroll magic shop and school.  They went and met Alendru Ghoroven, the proprietor of the establishment, who agreed to rent out his library for 10 gold pieces a day.  The team spent some time research and found some hints but nothing solid and conclusive.  The group spoke a few minutes with young Pevrin Elkarid at the posting pole and found he was posting about the vandalism.

The party traveled back up the hill to Harrowstone Prison and began searching for the stairway down.  They discovered a number of offices filled with old prison records as well as one containing a very sturdy safe.  They then found an auditorium of some sort and triggered a cold spot haunt!  The party was badly injured by the netherworld cold but made it to the other side and found a massive room partially collapsed by fire.  Stoella went to check out a large opening in the floor and was attacked by a trio of flaming skulls!  The skulls injured her and nearly killed Dinendal.  Gnok and Amras rushed to their aid while Stoella blew one up with a force missile.  She was burned in the process and her last act was hitting another skull with a second force missile.  Amras and Gnok moved in and fought the skulls briefly until Gnok was able to shatter them with his impressive unarmed combat skills.

Battered and nearly depleted of resources, the group crawled out the side wall of the prison and went back in the front door.  They spent the next five hours organizing the papers in the office and another hour researching.  Stoella was very confident the answers they seek are within the papers, but it is going to take more time to uncover them.
