Savage! — Game Session — 035

Game summary for August 2, 2016, Savage! campaign, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: Blazing Sun (Kau Human Sage played by Kaliegh Belda), Night Watcher (Ogre Martial Artist played by Casey Scruggs), and Singing Mammoth (Elf Soldier played by Taylor Averdick). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team entered a massive room with ropes and a pulley system.  A huge platform had been lowered into the room by the Keepers, placing a ravenous alpha tyrannosaurus between them and the Dawn Seal fragment.  Blazing Sun’s firehawk swooped in and was immediately swallowed up.  Soon, Singing Mammoth’s velociraptor was also snatched up.  Singing Mammoth was angered at the sight of his friend in the jaws of the beast and unleashed a multishot.  Unfortunately, all three arrows slammed into the raptor!  The t-rex then swallowed it.  Night Watcher closed in and unleashed a flurry of blows.  Blazing Sun was outraged about her firehawk and leapt into action.  She slammed her axe into the head of the dinosaur, killing it instantly!  The team cut their companions free and recovered the final Dawn Seal fragment!

The team then set out for the Shining Gate.  First, they used their rafts to cross the Lake of Tears where they were constantly attacked by sharks.  Next they traveled through deku scrub lands where they were pelted by hurled nuts.  Once in the plains, they had to capture some wild horses and ride to the badlands.  In the badlands, they had to stay ahead of the Keepers and their hurled spears.  Finally, in the highlands they had to avoid roaming packs of mountain giants!

As they traveled through the mountains toward the Shining Gate they were approached by pinkish purple flying creatures with a single massive eye.  These flyclops revealed the ability to flash blinding light at their foes.  This blinding Night Watcher who tried to use his keen hearing to locate a foe.  He heard a sound and closed in!  He pummeled his target into a pulp on the ground, the sound of its spine shattering and heart mashing to sludge music to his ears.  Unfortunately, it was Singing Mammoth’s velociraptor he smashed to death.  To death.  Grief-stricken, Singing Mammoth unleashed a barrage and took down another flyclops.  Quickly the team dispatched the monsters.

The team nearly reached the Shining Gate when a mountain giant tracker caught up to them.  It came roaring from the woods swinging a massive macuahaitl longer than a man!  The firehawk swooped in and was hit so hard only a splatter of blood and feathers ever hit the ground.  Blazing Sun charged in to avenge her fallen friend while Night Watcher moved in from behind.  The giant caught Blazing Sun with a mighty chop and felled her in a single blow.  Blood splattered as she lay dying on the ground.

The giant lunged toward Singing Mammoth who fell back as Night Watcher moved in to engage.  He tripped over his own feet and fell off balance, but the giant over swung and shattered its macuahaitl upon its own back in a spray of gore!  It jerked a stone knife from its belt and began viciously stabbing Night Watcher as he unleashed a battering flurry of punches and kicks.  Singing Mammoth kept up the volleys of arrows until one struck true and killed the giant!

Meanwhile, as Blazing Sun lay dying:

As Blazing Sun’s sight began to fade to black, she remembered the last thing her orphanage nanny said to her as her last breath escaped, “Blazing Sun… always remember… eat red with the web to escape the dead…”  As Blazing Sun’s last though of her nanny drifted she noticed a spider’s web spun all around the plant in front of her face.  It clicked… red… web… could it be?  Blazing Sun rolled slightly closer to the web and took a bite of the spider’s home.  It was like magic!  The red tioye that she was still sucking on, that she was saving in her cheek of her mouth mixed with the web.  Just as her nanny described.  Blazing Sun began to feel life return to her veins.

Thus did Blazing Sun cheat death; however, her allies soon began to notice a slight change in her behavior…
