Carron Crown Adventure Path – Game Session – 022

Game summary for August 8, 2013, Carrion Crown Adventure Path campaign, Trial of the Beast adventure; PCs included Amras Amandill (half-elf inquisitor), Dinendal Ironbow (elf ranger), Gnok Thatek (dwarf monk), and Irnadette Steelsoul (elan psion), accompanied by NPC companion Heidi Loenhardt (human cleric).

The party engaged what turned out to be three mongrelmen on the floor of the chymickal works.  Several of the party were nauseated by the fumes, but they quickly wiped out the mongrelmen and stole their gas masks.  They then scampered up the ladder to the catwalk while the flesh golem hound burst through the lower doorway.  Unable to follow up the ladder, it just snarled and barked.

The team entered a loading bay and found some alchemical items but nothing of real interest.  They then opened another door, and Amras caught a throwing axe to the chest!  Within the small room stood the red-haired Grine!  The wicked little man’s axe was smeared with poison, and Amras immediately felt weakened.

The group tried to press into the room, but the small space limited their options.  Amras fought from atop a bed while Gnok and Dinendal forced Grine to slink backward.  Having been punched and smacked in the face by Gnok, Grine sought retreat.  Grine used his poisoned handaxe to further weaken Amras before dropping a globe of magical darkness in the room while he scampered up a ladder.  Amras countered with a light orison and pursued only to take another hit from Grine’s sharp little axe!  At the top of the ladder, Amras found himself surrounded by Grine and two snapjaw homunculi!  Gnok, Dinendal, and Irnadette scampered up as well, and the seven combatants went at each other’s throats in the 15’ x 15’ room!  Both Gnok and Irnadette succumbed to sleep poison from the homunculi and Amras suffered several sneak attacks from Grine.  Just as things looked the most bleak, Dinendal knocked Grine out with a well-placed mace!  Heidi then entered the room and channeled positive energy to heal the party.  Amras cut apart one homunculus, and as Gnok came to, he destroyed the other.

The team quickly bound Grine and searched the two rooms.  They discovered a small steel box which Irnadette was able to open with her lock picks.  However, it triggered a poison gas trap, but she was able to shake off the effects.  The party debated heading back to the courthouse with Grine or staying and searching for clues.  They decided they still needed hard evidence and opted to stay.
