Carrion Crown Adventure Path – Game Session – 036

Game summary for December 5, 2013, Carrion Crown Adventure Path campaign, Broken Moon adventure; PCs included Caerwen (elf monk), Dario Malavasi (human oracle), and Gnok Thatek (dwarf monk), accompanied by NPC companion Nyssa Pagonis (human cleric).

The team decided to make an attempt for the roof and darted out the temple and around to the stairs.  The Primals saw them and sprinted in pursuit as the Mordrinacht opened fire on the Primals with silvered crossbow bolts.  With the werewolves engaged with one another, the team was able to make the stairs on the roof leading up the tower toward the observatory.  The team sprinted up the stairs.  For a while.  Although armored Dario was soldiering on up the steps, but the two monks tuckered out and nearly had to drag themselves up.  The werewolves below occasionally fired volleys their way but kept most of their attention on keeping the Primals at bay.

The party reached the top of the stairs and fought a trio of Silverhide rangers in hybrid form.  The werewolves fought a vicious battle, but the team prevailed.  After having watched the team struggled against the three guards, Nyssa cast bless and good hope on everyone.  The team ascended to the next level and found Mathus Mordrinacht seated on the Highthrone!  He leapt to his feet as they emerged, and Cybrisa Dorzhanev launched into spellcasting beside him.  Caerwen brought the fight to the werewolf, hitting him once with his ki-enhanced fists.  Mathus, however, focused on Dario.  Apparently the werewolf had a seething hatred for humans!  With his bastard sword and dagger, the werewolf pack leader tore into the oracle.  He cut him savagely with sword and dagger, and then he bit his shoulder and hurled him crashing to the floor.  Meanwhile, Cybrisa attempted a heat metal spell on Dario with no effect.  Nyssa used magic to heal the injured while Gnok and Caerwen tried to cut Mathus off from the critically injured Dario.

With Caerwen in the way, the team learned if Mathus can’t kill a human, he’d just assume kill an elf.  Thus, the mighty werewolf assaulted Caerwen and dealt grievous injury!  Cybrisa moved to the end of the tower and began casting call lightning.  Gnok decided he could not let that spell go off, so he bull rushed the druidic werewolf.  The hefty dwarf slammed into her slim frame and catapulted her twenty feet into empty space from which she plummeted 150 feet to slam into the earth below.  Somehow the tenacious druid retained concentration upon her spell!  Unfortunately for her, the Primals surged in and ripped her to pieces.  Mathus’ hatred grew, and launched a furious assault all about and brought several of the team nearly to their knees.  Blood flowed freely from heroes and foes until finally, Dario stepped forward and cut down the mighty werewolf with an overhand chop from his nine-ring broadsword!
