Carrion Crown Adventure Path – Game Session – 102

Game summary for July 28, 2015, Carrion Crown Adventure Path campaign, Shadows of Gallowspire adventure; PCs included Dario Malavasi (human afflicted dire werewolf oracle), Radimir Dragomirov (human huecuva lord cleric), and Thrain (graveknight dwarf slayer), accompanied by NPC companion Nyssa Pagonis (human cleric) and cohort Bartemus Grimm (dwarf gunslinger).

Thrain and Bartemus came back down the hall and tried to push through the black tentacles. Thrain made it through very stealthily. Nyssa healed Bartemus, and both of them then got grappled by the spell. They spent the most of the rest of the encounter being crushed.

Dario suddenly found himself face-to-face with a huge fire elemental! He fought it with a surprising furiosity, however and rocked it back. Radimir accidentally stumbled into the spellcaster, and the team began to unleash upon his invisible form. Dario got close enough to blindsense him and directed their attacks. Soon, his invisibility wore off and the team found they did indeed face a worm that walks! The hideous spellcaster was tremendously difficult to harm and healed at a staggering rate! Radimir hit him with a cone of cold while Thrain wailed away with his frosty pick. Dario beat down the fire elemental, which finally died beneath Radimir’s ice storm. At last, Radimir called upon the unholy power of Dagon to launch a frozen icicle from his finger which slammed into the caster and struck him dead on impact!

The group then opened the double doors and found an enormous stone cavern filled with pews and statues of Urgathoa. Over a dozen gaunt pale forms stood within chanting before a great black altar behind which an obviously undead priest stood. He invited the team to join the ritual! Nearby a large gaping hole radiated black negative energy from within, and the chained form of Count Galdana, pallid and grayish, hung suspended over the depths! The hooded figures turned to face the team, and shockingly, they all looked like Count Galdana.

Thrain made a mad dash for the platform and altar, trying to get to the priest. His stubby legs didn’t get him too far into the room before being swarmed by the pale Galdanas. They drew forth short swords and attacked him from all sides. Bartemus moved in to aid him and was quickly flanked by more. Radimir hit three of the creatures with a flame strike and found them nimble and resistant to fire. Nyssa dropped haste upon Radimir, Dario, and Bartemus but was unable to reach isolated Thrain.
