Reign of Winter — Game Session — 027

Game summary for May 9, 2017, Reign of Winter campaign, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: Denessia Rapidarma (Dwarf Gunslinger/Paladin played by Casey Scruggs), 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), Svala Alehorn (Dwarf Unchained Barbarian played by Todd Hughes), Ten-Penny Tacey (Half-Orc Rogue played by Shane Bradley), and Tulvur Xandersen (Dwarf Fighter played by Taylor Averdick). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team eased up onto the porch of the Dancing Hut and could see it was larger inside than outside!  Deska touched the chain holding the hut, and it shattered!  The group then entered and began to explore.  The main room held a massive cauldron and shelves of various magical and alchemical items.  The group explored the loft overhead and then went through some double doors to discover a bizarre room with a magical map of Irrisen surrounded by iron thrones.  A bone golem rose up and attacked the party nearly killing Ten-Penny!  Denessia slowed it with positive energy which drastically reduced its effectiveness.  The team swarmed in and flanked it, and Kenwrec was able to bring it down.

The group then discovered a great library and learned a bit more about the hut.  The took the magical index with them and then threw the two keys they received from the Black Rider into the cauldron.  They were surprised to find the room shifted a bit, and the only exit now went into a seemingly infinite hallway.  Deska used her serpentine owl to scout and found some double doors.  The team approached and found an emblem resembling the dawn etched upon it.  Inside, they encountered an albino raven!  Ten-Penny recognized it as one of Baba Yaga’s “Liar Seers”.  It posed to them a riddle and offered to help them if they not only solved the riddle but also faced the answer to the riddle and learn its desire…

    Journal Entry

    The last thing I remembered was getting my ass handed to me by Nazhena and her entourage. I thought I was going to die. But, I didn’t. Surprisingly, I was soon stirred by a rather interesting bunch made up of dwarves, humans, a half-elf, and a half-orc. It was a good thing they were friendly, because I could not have taken them on in my condition.

    They quickly restored my health and explained how they dispatched the White Bitch, I mean, White Witch. They told of a brave orc witch that played a critical role in Nazhena’s demise but was sadly taken out by her. I’m not generally a fan of witches, but I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you gotta give credit where it’s due. The fabled Tiswichtt shall forever be remembered in story and song, I’m sure.

    Indebted to the adventuring party, I offered to join forces in taking down Elvanna. They accepted and we immediately went for Baba Yaga’s Dancing Hut. The half-elf druid, Deska, touched the chain binding the hut, causing it to dissipate.

    We entered the hut. There was definitely something witchy about the place. It was much bigger on the inside than it appeared from the outside. We began exploring the rooms. We entered a throne room of sorts and were quickly greeted by a skeleton golem. Before I even got a single shot off, he was put down by the party. Now I did slow him down, but the bounty hunter, Kenwrec, dealt the final blow. Dwarves already have a good name; he makes it even better.

    After dealing with the golem, we realized the throne room is a scrying tool to look upon specified people. After some further exploring and discovering a secret library connected to the main room, Deska learned how to use the scry. We hoped it would show us Baba Yaga, but it didn’t. The scry is limited to people living in Irrisen. It makes sense that she is not there.

    The main room contains a cauldron. After some more studying (I guess that’s one thing Elves are good at), we learned that the cauldron can be used to operate the hut. Apparently Baba Yaga’s Black Rider had given the group some odd items: a lock of white hair and a plague doctor mask. We mixed them into the cauldron, hoping it would magically take us to Baba Yaga. Alas, it did not.

    Instead, we arrived at some magic-ified hallway. Deska (yes, once again, Deska, the half-elf) sent a magical horned owl down both directions. They each led to double doors.
    We went down one of the paths, opened the double doors, found that the hallway continued on, but also saw a white raven, one of Baba Yaga’s seer’s, who gave us a riddle.

    I cannot make sense of the riddle. I’m sure Deska will. Like I said, elves are good for book smarts, if nothing else.
