Reign of Winter — Game Session — 002

Game summary for September 13, 2016, Reign of Winter campaign, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: All Might (Human Warpriest played by Andrew Renfrow), Deska Starseeker (Half-Elf Druid played by Kaliegh Belda), Kenwrec Battleglaive (Dwarf Slayer played by Peyton Harmon), Magnus Erlingsson (Human Cleric played by Chris Harmon), Tiswichtt (Orc Witch played by Casey Scruggs), and Tulvur Xandersen (Dwarf Fighter played by Taylor Averdick). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team woke up in their pavilion and stowed it for their continued journey.  Deeper in the woods the snows swelled into great drifts slowing the team to a crawl.  Deska noticed movement under the snow as a great arctic tatzlwyrm burst from the snow to pounce her.  She uttered windy escape and avoided its attack and then countered with a devastating spear thrust.  The team converged, and All Might landed a killing blow.

The team moved on and found an area of more shallow snow.  In the trees they discovered frozen crows riddled with arrows.  As they looked, lights in the trees behind them began to glow.  Deska spoke in Sylvan trying to elicit a response.  Winter-touched sprites revealed themselves from the branches of nearer trees and unleashed a barrage of tiny frigid arrows.  Tiswichtt spun about and scorched a tree with burning hands as Kenwrec stumbled over to chop at another.  Deska attempted to entangle a sprite without success.  All Might called upon the power of Gorum to bless the party.  The team found movement through the snow frustrating as the sprites continued to hit them with arrows.  Deska caught one of the sprites, Pym, with a hurled spear.  All Might galloped his horse forward and bravely stood in the saddle.  At the last moment, he leapt into the air and cut Pym in half with his axe before crashing into the ground no longer occupied by his running horse.  The sprites flitted from tree-to-tree unleashing arrows and taunts all along the way.  Both eventually used their color spray abilities to try and incapacitate the team, but no one succumbed.  Magnus doomed one of the sprites, and Tulvur methodically kept a stream of crossbow bolts flying at the annoying fey.  One finally connected and impaled a sprite, Shor, to an embankment, killing her instantly.  The final sprite’s resolve broke, and she flew out through the forest and over the snow to parts unknown.
