Carrion Crown Adventure Path – Game Session – 078

Game summary for November 18, 2014, Carrion Crown Adventure Path campaign, Ashes at Dawn adventure; PCs included Dario Malavasi (human afflicted dire werewolf oracle), Thrain (dwarf slayer), and Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander (human abjurer/cleric/mystic theurge) accompanied by NPC companions Alleric Swiftblade (half-elf rogue) and Nyssa Pagonis (human cleric).

The witchfires cackled in delight and darted through the walls in search of Oothi’s spider swarms. The team decided to explore the lower level of the abbey and went back inside. They went down a flight of stairs and entered an ossuary where they encountered an armored vampire. With the seeming disguise and Dario’s bluff check, he left to speak with someone else. The team looked around and found several secret doors. One led into the well, which was a surprise. The found another passage leading into a wine cellar. The group then opened a door and found a huge room with burning candles and a bloody pentagram. Sitting on a throne was Aisa Dublesse!

The witch demanded the team (whom she perceived as a group of her own guards and two prisoners) approach. She ordered the guards to fetch her sister and was angry when they did not immediately respond. Then, she seemed to get a distracted look and started talking to herself or maybe through some kind of magic to Oothi. She raged and revealed her vampiric nature when learning her sister was dead and suddenly realized the guards were no longer charmed and under her control. She cast solid fog and flew to the ceiling.

The group slowly advanced through the fog while Nyssa used spells like good hope and bear’s endurance. Dario had used a wand of death ward after meeting the armored vampire moments earlier, so they were further protected. Dario also cast spells like searing light and spear of purity while Zedd used scorching ray. He then cast disrupting weapon on Thrain’s pick and launched the dwarf using telekinetic charge. Aisa successfully dominated Dario and forced him to attack his party with blade and flame strike. Then, he was forced to transform into hybrid werewolf form!

The vampire unleashed a cone of cold and traded lightning bolts with Zedd. Zedd flew up in the air using her broom of flying while Dario trapped Thrain behind a wall of iron. Nyssa then dispelled the witch’s flight and then used break enchantment to free Dario from the domination! The tides were suddenly turned on the witch, and she was quickly reduced to gaseous form and fled into the solid fog!
