Carrion Crown Adventure Path – Game Session – 099

Game summary for June 23, 2015, Carrion Crown Adventure Path campaign, Shadows of Gallowspire adventure; PCs included Brutus Bonesmasher (human fighter), Dario Malavasi (human afflicted dire werewolf oracle), Gnok Thatek (dwarf vampire monk), Malthus Brightray (half-elf cleric), and Thrain (graveknight dwarf slayer), accompanied by NPC companion Nyssa Pagonis (human cleric) and cohorts Lucretia Ivankov (human vampire spawn sorcerer) and Tagre (dread gnome fighter/rogue/assassin).

Dario, Brutus, and Malthus arrived on the scene and quickly turned the tide! Malthus channeled positive energy several times, devastating the undead. With the foes weakened, it took only a few moments for the team to finish the rest off. The group spent a moment nursing wounds, raising dead, and then proceeded down another hallway.

The group found a room filled with broken funerary urns. They began to hear whispers, and several the team began injuring themselves! Their freshly raised companions died again at their own hands. Nyssa silenced the room, and the team rushed through, leaving their cohorts’ bodies behind.

A scene of horror greeted them moments later when they found a vast chamber stacked with mutilated corpses, their rotting fluids dripping down through holes in the floor. Gnok assumed gaseous form and explored, finding a chamber below filled with a pool of millions of teeming maggots! The group entered the corpse room and disturbed millions of black flies! Nearly gagging, the team tried to make it across the room to a set of double doors. However, a horrific beast from the primordial Abyss erupted from just beneath the corpses! The augnagar qlippoth lashed out and dealt deep bleeding injuries to numerous party members. It bit Dario in the chest, and he succumbed to a dread curse causing his flesh to begin rotting on the bone! Thrain moved in to engage, Malthus assumed the form of righteous might, and Gnok hurled himself through the air onto the creature’s back! Blood flowed freely as the outsider ripped into the team. They hammered back with tiny but compounding blows. Eventually, Gnok realized his lawful monk talents should allow him to overcome the qlippoth’s damage reduction. He battered the creature and eventually killed it!

With the qlippoth dead, the team stands in the midst of a million buzzing flies wondering what other horrors await.
