Reign of Winter — Game Session — 018

Game summary for March 7, 2017, Reign of Winter campaign, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: Deska Starseeker (Half-Elf Druid played by Kaliegh Belda), and Tulvur Xandersen (Dwarf Fighter played by Taylor Averdick). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team piled into a hovel with Greta and answered some of her questions.  She agreed to help them deliver the fish and led them down a back alley to avoid more mirror men.  Along the way, they ran into a fleeing human named Jorhan scrambling to escape a pursing winter wolf.  The team learned the man was owned by the wolf who had decided to kill him.  Deska and Tulvur talked the winter wolf into selling them the man for 75 gp, and they put him to work pushing the fish cart.  They quickly dropped off the fish and then headed toward the forger’s house.

The group went by a rowdy bar, and two winter wolves, in human form, came out punching and kicking each other.  When they say the party, the hurled some vague threats to which the party responded arrogantly.  The wolves decided to have some sport and try and eat the team.  They shifted into wolf form and attacked!  Armed with only daggers and light armor, the team was sorely pressed.  Fortunately, Greta was fully armed and charged in alongside.  Ten-Penny setup a flank and began harming one winter wolf while Deska blinded another with spit venom.  Tulvur raged and slashed madly with his dagger.  Meanwhile, a wolf tripped Greta and menaced her, forcing her to fight with her axe from the ground quite ineffectively.  Tulvur demoralized the wolves and pressed his advantage, allowing Deska to square off with one using flame blade.  She avoided a nasty hit using windy escape.  The group defeated the wolves, and Greta revealed some magical talent unleashing healing divine magic upon herself and several of the team.

Just outside the home of Mortin the forger, the group came upon two ice trolls arguing with a pair of winter wolves in human form.  The trolls noticed the team but was too busy with the wolves.  As the team got to Mortin’s door, the trolls and wolves went their separate ways with the trolls looking for the party.  No one would answer the door, and Ten-Penny fumbled with the lock.  Deska rolled a bag of marbles into the street as Tulvur hurled a rock to distract the trolls.  Ten-Penny finally got the door open, and the team began fumbling through.  The distracted troll stepped on the marbles and fell flat on his back, which caused the other troll to roar with laughter.  This devolved into a fight between the two right in the street.  The team was able to get behind the door and close it, mostly forgotten.

A furious Ringeirr berated Mortin for not opening the door and risking their lives.  He ended up browbeating the man into forging papers for the team for free and also making papers for Jorhan to go free.  The team stayed overnight as he completed their documents.

Finally, the team headed for the gateway into Whitethrone proper.  They were stopped by a pair of mirror men who looked over their papers and found nothing amiss.  The creatures spoke to the team telepathically and warned them that public dancing remains strictly prohibited.
