Game summary for December 2, 2014, Carrion Crown Adventure Path campaign, Shadows of Gallowspire adventure; PCs included Dario Malavasi (human afflicted dire werewolf oracle), Gnok Thatek (dwarf vampire monk), Radimir Dragomirov (human cleric), Thrain (dwarf slayer), and Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander (human abjurer/cleric/mystic theurge) accompanied by NPC companions Nyssa Pagonis (human cleric) and Bhagesh (pavbagha) and cohorts Leora Chontos (aasimar fighter), Lucretia Ivankov (human vampire spawn sorcerer), and Tiberius Shortshanks (dwarf fighter).

The party spent time shopping for various items useful for fighting undead such as holy water and oil of align weapon. They went to the church of Pharasma and got a letter stating their mission with the high priest’s seal in case they were to encounter any patrols from Lastwall. The group decided to use teleport to reach Renchurch and purchased five scrolls of teleport.

Once prepared, several of the party climbed down into the portable hole while Zedd used one of the scrolls. The teleport whisked the team across Ustalav, but something went wrong! The team emerged from a witchgate, a magical trap that diverted the group to an unknown location! The clearing in which they found themselves was surrounded by half-a-dozen hangman trees!

The carnivorous plants attacked and lassoed several of the team with their strangling vines! Radimir was quickly dragged into the maw of one and swallowed. Dario spread out the portable hole to release Lucretia, Leora, Gnok, and Nyssa. Bhagesh tore into one of the trees while Thrain and Tiberius unleashed a barrage of attacks. Zedd used several fireball spells and caught numerous hangman trees in the areas. Gnok jumped out of the hole and scaled one of the trees. Nyssa was able to bless the team. Leora scored several critical hits and chopped down one tree. Soon the party gained the upper hand and took down the rest of the trees after learning they are susceptible to electricity.

Now, the team must figure out where they are and how to continue toward Renchurch.
