Carrion Crown Adventure Path – Game Session – 098

Game summary for June 9, 2015, Carrion Crown Adventure Path campaign, Shadows of Gallowspire adventure; PCs included Gnok Thatek (dwarf vampire monk), Radimir Dragomirov (human cleric), Thrain (graveknight dwarf slayer), and Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander (human brine lich abjurer/cleric/mystic theurge), accompanied by NPC companion Nyssa Pagonis (human cleric) and cohorts Lucretia Ivankov (human vampire spawn sorcerer), Polyphemus (tiefling fighter/rogue), and Tagre (dread gnome fighter/rogue/assassin).

The group found a room full of gurneys with several beaten refugees. In talking to them, they recognized one as none other than Count Lucinean Galdana! They learned from him they had been beaten and tortured, and he would soon be forced to consume some fluid to awaken a tyrant. He told them there was a secret entrance and led them to the south.

Gnok scouted ahead in gaseous form and discovered an odd scene! Kneeling around a table were eight cultists who had slit their own throats and died. Oddly, none seemed to cast a shadow… Gnok reported back, and Zedd cast true sight and advanced. He saw the room full of greater shadows. When he turned to tell the team, he saw through disguises and realized the team had 8 shapeshifted totenmaskes among them! The fake refugees (and Count) transformed into undead before their eyes and attacked. The team hurt several and even killed a couple of the undead. However, both Tagre and Polyphemus were slain and in the process of turning into shadows! Radimir was also dreadfully injured. Will the party survive?
