Reign of Winter — Game Session — 007

Game summary for November 15, 2016, Reign of Winter campaign, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: Deska Starseeker (Half-Elf Druid played by Kaliegh Belda), 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 secured a pony for Tulvur to ride and headed back into the forest looking for the winter portal.  Along the way, they came across bloody tracks leading them to the frozen body of Dryden Kepp.  They discovered a journal on his person and learned he was hunting a giant weasel and had set out bear traps.  He apparently injured it and ended up getting mauled to death by it up on the ridge.  The team recovered a couple magical arrows and a flask of applejack.

Soon the team came upon a clearing where something had been digging.  Deska moved up to uncover the buried items and was attacked by frost firs!  The wooden creatures swung violently, and Deska fell back and caught one with entangle while Tulvur shook the other with his fearsome demeanor.  Tulvur’s axe proved particularly well-suited to fighting the trees, and the team defeated them in short order.

The group continued through the forest and found Dryden’s bear traps which they claimed for their own.  They then came upon a field of icy boulders setup in some kind of maze before a log hut.  A little girl kept yelling at them as they moved through the ice and eventually warned them to run.  The group began noticing frozen corpses within the ice, and Tulvur had a bit of a breakdown.  The party dragged him along, and they stood before the hut. Sitting in a chair was a small child-like doll that resembled the little girl; however, the doll was old and wrinkled.  It possessed one blue gemstone eye and one mirror eye reflecting the sun.  The party found odd things began happening, like lights appearing in the hut, doors opening and closing, and so on.  Eventually, Deska tried to attack the doll, which provoked it to stab her in the neck!  The doll came to life and began to hover in mid-air.  It succeeded in charming Tiswichtt, but the team brought it down before the witch could unleash wrath upon her allies.

After defeating the doll, the team found a trail behind the cabin leading further into the valley.
