Reign of Winter — Game Session — 013

Game summary for January 10, 2017, 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 explored the two rooms on the aerie level.  One was a bedroom with little of interest.  However, the other was a storeroom filled with dollhouses the fey utilized for housing.  Within was a magical silver dagger and a small fortune in jewels and jewelry.

Deska decided to try and track Thora using her wolf scent ability and made the discovery that Tiswichtt carried a sapphire covered in the girl’s scent.  Much to the party’s horror, Tiswichtt realized Thora’s fate; she had been executed and used to create a guardian doll!  The magical doll they had fought several days earlier had been powered by the little girl’s life force.  They told Nadya what they had learned, causing her to wail in grief.  After a while she composed herself and vowed vengeance upon the white witch.

The team then used the teleportation crystals to return to the second floor.  They went through some double doors to discover some kind of conservatory filled with plants.

One of the plants was a fearsome demonic blood-draining mandragora!  The creature shrieked and caused Tiswichtt to become nauseous.  The team closed in and began to hack on the plant.  It grappled Deska and began to drain her blood with its roots!  It didn’t take long for the team to bring it down, and they discovered it had been chained and apparently bound here.

The group moved down another hallway and discovered a bedroom with a locked trunk.  Ten-Penny was able to pick the lock and open the container to reveal a small fortune in gems and a cache of potions.

Down yet another hallway they found a room with a bizarre occupant.  Standing in the room was Lady Argentea Malassene!  The team was perplexed because the noblewoman did not recognize them.  They talked for a bit and finally they tricked the woman into drinking an elixir of truth.  She then began to answer their questions with brutal honesty, revealing herself to be a doppelganger!  The creature shapeshifted and attacked but stood no chance against the party.

In another room the team found the forlarren bard, Mierul Ardelain, they had encountered when they first entered Irrisen!  She cast a flame blade and moved to attack.  Deska cast whip of spiders and moved to engage.  Ten-Penny slipped up and landed a critical sneak attack!  Rocked, Mierul staggered back as Tulvur pressed the attack.  However, the demonic fey stepped to the side and critically hit Deska, dropping her unconscious!  The bard could not stand again the team, however, and died soon thereafter.  The team poured a potion down Deska’s throat, bringing her back to consciousness.
