Savage! — Game Session — 028

Game summary for May 24, 2016, Savage! campaign, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: Little Spirit (Tsanta Human Soldier played by Andrew Renfrow), Night Watcher (Ogre Martial Artist played by Casey Scruggs), Singing Mammoth (Elf Soldier played by Taylor Averdick), Standing Bison (Giant Soldier played by Peyton Harmon), and Wolf Spirit (Kompache Human Priest played by Chris Harmon). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team discovered caverns filled with slaves harvesting obsidian for use in Keeper weaponry.  Ogre slavers kept them at task and attacked when the party entered.  The fighting was fierce and bloody, and a whip-wielding slaver entangled Singing Mammoth and pulled him in close.  He then used his screaming club as a bludgeon against the party.  The rest of the team dispatched the other ogres and came to the elf’s rescue.

In the next chamber, the team found a cave-gnawer ghula and a group of Keepers finishing a sacrifice.  The party closed in, but the Keepers stood their ground long enough for the ghula to engage Night Watcher and nearly disembowel him.  Meanwhile, Singing Mammoth’s velociraptor, Clever, missed a leap and hurled herself into the lava!  Standing Bison’s bear fished her out before she could be consumed.  Standing Bison forced red tioye down Night Watcher’s throat before moving in to fight.  Wolf Spirit, armed with a heartstone axe closed in as well.  Night Watcher was able to get back into the fight while hovering at the threshold of death’s door.  He managed to land a lucky blow and kill the ghula!

The team traveled on and balanced across narrow ledges beside lava flows and floated on mineral barges in rivers of molten rock.  They ran from Keeper hordes for hours, get more and more tired.  They successfully navigated around noxious thermal vents, with only a few of the party being harmed by the poisons.  They tried to negotiate some grey tioye from a merchant but instead ran him off.

In time they made it to a chamber and found the otomi warrior, Tepoizcat!  He swung his iron-edged macuahaitl with authority and precision.  Using wolf pack tactics, he and his thugs dealt a lot of damage to the party.  The team whittled away at his allies until only he remained.  He could not stand against the combined might of the entire party.  After slaying this wicked Keeper, they discovered the 6th Dawn Seal fragment!
