Carrion Crown Adventure Path – Game Session – 107

Game summary for September 8, 2015, Carrion Crown Adventure Path campaign, Shadows of Gallowspire adventure; PCs included Dario Malavasi (human afflicted dire werewolf oracle), Gnok Thatek (dwarf vampire monk), and Thrain (graveknight dwarf slayer, accompanied by NPC companion Nyssa Pagonis (human cleric) and cohort Bartemus Grimm (dwarf gunslinger), and Lucretia Ivankov (human vampire spawn sorcerer).

The team fell back from the onslaught of the Knights of the Gate. Dario fled on foot as quickly as he could, and Thrain was compelled to chase after him. At a sufficient distance, Dario summoned a roc that snatched up Thrain and hurled him into the ravener’s hanging cage. It then swooped down and grabbed both Knights of the Gate and flew high into the sky. When it disappeared back from whence it came, the two devourers plummeted to their destruction on the stones below.

The group nursed their wounds while the vampires recuperated in their coffins. The team then cast a barrage of spells and charged through the open gates of Gallowspire to discover General Sey’lok, an ancient nightwalker! Thrain stepped right up to the towering monstrosity and sunk his pick deep into its leg. It retaliated by sundering his magical shield! Gnok and Dario closed as Nyssa and Lucretia began enhancing and attack spells. The nightwalker focused on the large living werewolf over the undead running about its feet. It damaged his sword and sliced him to ribbons. Within moments, Dario was staggered and cling to life by the thinnest of threads. Finally, Gnok and Thrain managed to flank the nightwalker, and Thrain’s sneak attack damage began taking its toll. A solid critical hit from Gnok laid the undead horror low, and the party rejoiced.

Searching the area, they found massive stairs leading up and signs of a battle from long ago. Among the desiccated corpses of slain angels, the team found a +1 flaming greatsword.
