Carrion Crown Adventure Path – Game Session – 089

Game summary for March 17, 2015, Carrion Crown Adventure Path campaign, Shadows of Gallowspire adventure; PCs included Gnok Thatek (dwarf vampire monk) and Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander (human abjurer/cleric/mystic theurge) accompanied by NPC companions Nyssa Pagonis (human cleric), Sigbiorn the Blue (magical beast skald), and Bhagesh (pavbagha) and cohorts Leora Chontos (aasimar fighter) and Lucretia Ivankov (human vampire spawn sorcerer).

The team moved down a hallway decorated with severed human heads mounted on plaques. As they progressed, the heads began to move as if suffocating, and all the air whooshed out of the room! The team ran down the hall to safety with Gnok carrying Nyssa out over his shoulder.

The group investigated a closed door and found themselves in a worn but fairly opulent room with a familiar vampire figure, one of the female nobles from the Vampire Underground in Caliphas! She was speaking with a shadowy spectre calling himself the Chamberlain. He warned them to leave and that the Gray Friar would be unhappy to find them within. Gnok demanded to speak with the friar, so the Chamberlain invited them to come in and sit and wait on him. The party did so. Surprised, the spectre ordered another four spectres hiding in the walls to kill the party!

The battle became complicated. The vampire woman cast a web spell that entangled Zedd and made much of the room difficult to traverse. The spectres were unable to harm Gnok, and Zedd had previously protected himself with death ward. The most prominent target the spectres could find was Sigbiorn. Leora began using her scimitar, enhanced with Zedd’s disrupting weapon spell, to devastate the enemy. Lucretia cast obscuring mist which proved a bit of a problem with four enemies incorporeal.

The spectres were able to find their way to Sigbiorn, and the poor creature was slain by their touch. Moments later he rose from the grave as a spectre as well! Gnok quickly destroy him, however. The battle shifted though, and the team quickly took down the rest of the foes after Leora disrupted the vampire!
