Reign of Winter — Game Session — 026

Game summary for May 2, 2017, Reign of Winter campaign, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: All Might (Human Warpriest played by Andrew Renfrow), Svala Alehorn (Dwarf Unchained Barbarian played by Todd Hughes), Ten-Penny Tacey (Half-Orc Rogue played by Shane Bradley), and Tiswichtt (Orc Witch played by Casey Scruggs). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team advanced upon the final dawn piper and prepared to engage.  A spriggan emerged from the woods and grew to large size!  It attacked Svala as Greta charged the piper.  The dawn piper caught Ringeirr and Tiswichtt in an aqueous orb in which the ranger eventually drowned as it rolled through the forest.  Tiswichtt, however, broke free.  Ten-Penny was able to slip in and slay the spriggan, allowing the team to focus on the piper.  All Might found his cold iron battleaxe particularly effective against the fey, especially after he blessed the entire party.  The piper tried to unleash its blinding beauty but to limited effect.  Soon, it was cut down and the elemental fonts shut off.

With the way to the Dancing Hut open, the team swarmed in only to be confronted by an ice golem and the White Witch, Nazhena Vasilliovna!  She told the team they had taken too much from her already, her tower and her apprentice.  They would not also take the Dancing Hut!  She summoned an ice mephit and then flew 30 ft. up into the air.  Svala moved up and hit the ice golem with her axe but found it quite resistant to damage.  Tiswichtt advanced and unleashed an empowered burning hands, but to her horror, it just rolled over the golem to no avail!  Meanwhile, Ten-Penny activated her rimepelt to shapeshift into a winter wolf!  Nazhena then separated the party with a wall of ice which slowed them tremendously.  Greta, All Might, and Ten-Penny all struggled to get past the wall while the mephit and golem both breathed cold upon Tiswichtt and Svala, sickening them.  Tiswichtt hit the White Witch with a lightning bolt.

Nazhena used a slumber hex upon Tiswichtt, but Ten-Penny was able to nudge her awake.  Tiswichtt hurled a molten orb upon Nazhena while the mephit her Tiswichtt with magic missiles!  The golem also hit her with its clubbing limbs, staggering her.  All Might cast spiritual weapon and began driving the witch back.  Svala chopped down the ice mephit while Greta chopped down the ice golem.  Nazhena cast ice storm to devastating effect, killing Tiswichtt!  All Might charged on his horse and hurled his axe at the witch, narrowly missing her.  Ten-Penny leapt into air and hit the witch with a cold breath weapon.  Svala used a lasso to snag Nazhena and pull her lower.  Ten-Penny was able to jump again and rip out the White Witch’s throat!  The team mourned the loss of Tiswichtt and prepared to enter the Dancing Hut!
