Reign of Winter — Game Session — 033

Game summary for July 4, 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), 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 went down the tunnel and heard some shouting down the way.  However, they also found a stone door and decided to explore it instead.  They went down a hallway and found a large room filled with growing fungus.  Deska noticed a horned man hiding behind a mound.  She alerted her allies just in time as the man took to the air on bat-like wings and a terrible tendriculos surged upward and attacked!  The man, with his goat legs, hooves, and ram horns, used a suggestion to tempt Deska to move toward him.  He tried to charm her but failed all the while make horrific suggestive comments.  The plant creature snatched up and swallowed Denessia, however she was able to blast her way out with her pistol.  Tulvur was also snatched up and swallowed.  The tendriculos snatched Denessia back up off the ground to try and eat her again!  Greta and Deska tried to kill the flying man, but he proved resistant to weapons, spells, fire, and more.  Greta started hurting him with channeled negative energy.  Finally, Deska hit the tendriculos with a flame strike revealing its vulnerability to fire.  Denessia’s flaming bullets ripped into it as well.  Before long, that creature lay in a smoldering heap.  Deska spit poison at the flying man, but he just laughed.  He managed to charm Ten-Penny, and she grappled Denessia!  The group managed to injure him enough to flee down a hallway, the group used a scroll of dispel magic to remove the charm from their half-orc ally.  They nursed their wounds and took off down the hallway.

They came upon another really weird chamber divided into sections by wooden frames with beaded cloth stretched between them like walls.  Inside they found a brunette woman named Caigreal.  She told them she had been walking through the forest and suddenly appeared in the caves.  She seemed scared and even dropped her staff when they surprised her.  Deska talked to her for a while but could sense no deception.  Denessia was unable to detect evil upon her, although Greta still registers moderately so.  The group invited Caigreal to accompany them but warned she would have to fend for herself in battle.

The party went through a closed door through which Caigreal claimed the flying man had fled.  They found a room filled with dazzling light emanating from a six-inch hole in the floor.  Deska moved in to throw a blanket over it and was struck blind.  The party began to get injured by unseen assailants harming them with small sharp blades.  The team flailed about for a few moments as the whatever it was continued to wound them.  Deska plopped down on top of the shining hole, and in the dimmed light four light fairies appeared!  They used magic to blind two more party members and slashed viciously with their blades.  They could not withstand the onslaught of the team, however.  Greta dealt sheer angry damage with her axe, but Tulvur was particularly effective with the cold iron of Icebiter.

Finally, the group killed their assailants and recovered a magical gem from the hole in the floor.  Unfortunately, three of their part remained blind!

    Standing over the two-headed giant’s body, we spotted a stairway out of the room. We headed downstairs and eventually came to a swamp-like area. Deska noticed a horned-beast/man watching us and a mound in the bog moving toward us.

    I took the lead and headed for the manbeast (a demon I was told later), but the mound snatched me up and started to swallow me. (Parts of what follow were relayed to me, as I was otherwise occupied, getting digested and whatnot.)

    The demon enchanted Deska and called her toward him. Apparently not satisfied with one dwarf, the foliage also snatched up Tulvur. From within, I shot a hole and was able to climb out. Just as I land on the ground, though, the blasted thing swallowed me again. Deska, freed from her enchantment, sent a magical ice spike up through the plant, killing it.

    (I’ve mentioned before that I’m not partial to elves, but dadgummit, Deska is useful. Don’t get me wrong, I ain’t changing my mind about elves in general, but Deska has earned my respect.)

    The demon overpowered Tulvur and made him run away. Greta channeled negative energy at the demon. (I know she’s evil, and I’m sure things will come to a head sooner or later, but for now, I’m glad she’s on our side.) The party continued to assail the demon, but before we could put him down, he fled.

    We healed up, recovered Tulvur and gave chase, but came upon another room with multiple paths out. There was a woman there, who stated she was magically placed there. We allowed her to join our party, if she was willing to fight, until we make it out of the cave. She said saw the demon, injured, go through the path with a door on it. We headed that way.

    The room was filled with blinding light, emanating from a hole in the floor. Deska tried covering it with a blanket, but was blinded before she could. Immediately, tiny evil creatures began attacking the party.

    Deska clambered for the hole and sat on it, dimming the room significantly. Those tiny evil creatures suddenly became visible: fairies. Tulvur and Greta, with some assistance from the rest of us, were able to take them out. Unfortunately, however, many of us (myself included) were blinded by the little bastards.
