Carrion Crown Adventure Path – Game Session – 009

Game summary for May 9, 2013, Carrion Crown Adventure Path campaign, The Haunting of Harrowstone adventure; PCs included Amras Amandill (half-elf inquisitor), Dinendal Ironbow (elf ranger), and Gnok Thatek (dwarf monk) accompanied by NPC companion Thorkatla Foamflagon (dwarf cleric).

After the meeting with Vesorianna, the team met back up with Amras and Dinendal at Kendra’s home.  They sat at the table and discussed the situation for a bit.  Then, they returned to the prison where Gnok did some research and discovered the history of Hean Feramin, the Splatter Man!  They then spoke with Vesorianna some more and learned one of the spirits she had sensed with Abilard was not present.

The team then went back to the old training room with the gaping hole down into darkness.  The group tied Dinendal to a rope, cast light on the end of it, and lowered him into the depths where he discovered a shallow body of water.  He discovered it to be approximately waste deep.  He untied himself and looked around, seeing the ruins of an old lift and evidence of a collapse.  Amras followed him down into the water and went up on the shore.  Suddenly, two horrid ectoplasmic forms emerged and attacked!

Amras and Dinendal found themselves fighting for their lives as Gnok lowered Thorkatla safely down.  He then slid down the rope himself to enter the fray.  Dinendal took several deadly blows and was staggered.  Amras cut down one ectoplasmic spirit with his longsword but succumbed to the attacks of the other and collapsed in a bleeding heap.  Thorkatla channeled positive energy to heal her allies a bit and cast an ironbeard spell on Gnok.  The monk’s beard stiffened and grew into a shining metal barrier of armor which deflected at least one attack!  Gnok decided to hurl a flask of holy water at the remaining undead monster while Thorkatla again channeled healing power.

With Amras grievously injured but stable on the ground, Dinendal scrambling around for a healing potion, and Thorkatla nursing wounds, Gnok knew they were in dire straits.  He did the only reasonable thing—he grappled the ectoplasmic monster!  His plan, once pinning the creature, was to force his potion of cure light wounds down its throat!  Once he had it held, Thorkatla used her last channeling to surge the undead with positive energy, destroying it.  Gnok then rolled Amras over and poured his potion down his throat, reviving him.

Battered, bruised, and out of spells, the group scrambled back up the rope and returned to town.  They decided to go to the Laughing Demon tavern for lunch.
