Carrion Crown Adventure Path – Game Session – 065

Game summary for July 31, 2014, Carrion Crown Adventure Path campaign, Ashes at Dawn adventure; PCs included Dario Malavasi (human oracle), Emilian Sandulescu (human paladin/ranger), and Gnok Thatek (dwarf monk), accompanied by NPC companions Alleric Swiftblade (half-elf rogue) and Nyssa Pagonis (human cleric).

With their demon-delivered information, the team hit the streets of Caliphas seeking someone who could connect them with the underground. They spent hours talking to various sources, running down leads, filtering through myths, and puzzling out contacts. Finally, they ended up in a dark alley speaking with a dhampir named Quinley Basdel. He revealed his mother, a vampire, was the first murdered in the spree. He offered to help the PCs get to the leader of the vampire clans, Luvick Siervage, a several-millennia old elder vampire. He indicated the Vampire Underground was on lock down and they would need to fight their way in. Once in, they may be able to talk their way past various vampire factions and individuals but many need to do additional battle. The group prepared to fight vampires by purchasing a wand of death ward and numerous wooden stakes. They decided with the vampires physically underground, night or day didn’t matter and set out immediately.

Quinley led them to the Glass House in Restoration Park. The massive greenhouse was apparently an entrance to the Vampire Underground. The group picked the lock and went in where Dario detected the overwhelming presence of an undead. A group of shrieker mushrooms alerted any creatures within before the group could silence them. They discovered a massive flytrap plant that gobbled up Emelian! The group fought valiantly as the paladin began to be digested by the acidic carnivore! Several flame strike spells later, Dario killed the plant! From out behind several trees stepped a beautiful and mesmerizing half-elven woman clad in armor made of plants. She smiled, revealing her fangs, as she began to approach!
