Session included: 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 ran across the hall looking through the tower.  They stumbled up into the battlements and found no one.  By the time they got down, they found three Pale Tower guards ready for them.  Their companion, Ten-Penny, shot the first with her crossbow, dropping him.  The team surged in and cut down the guards quickly.  They then activated a teleportation crystal and found themselves in a dinning room.  After looking around they were ambushed by a pair of winter-touched atomies!  The team dispatched them with ease and marched down the hallway to find themselves assailed by animated ice nymph statues!  These landed powerful blows, but Deska’s flame blade helped whittle them down.

In a hurry, the team went down another hall and found a teleporter.  Knowing the passphrase, the team went through.  As they emerged they found they were entering an aerie filled with an aggressive raven swarm!  Deska, the first through, had her eyes badly damaged and was flailing blindly.  Kenwrec was struggling against the ravens and trying to fight his way to the sylph cleric who seemed to command the ravens.  Tiswichtt found herself temporarily blinded by the ravens as well.  Things looked bleak.  Tulvur had the idea to protect his eyes by strapping his snowshoes to his face so he could come in and save his allies.  He was poised to do so when Magnus charged across the room and slashed the sylph nearly in two with a mighty swipe of his greatsword!  Upon her death, the raven swarm dispersed.  The group was able to heal their allies and restore sight to Tiswichtt and Deska.
