Ruins of Undermountain — Game Session — 020

Game summary for March 10, 2018, Ruins of Undermountain campaign, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, for Harm Incorporated. Session included: Boran Gibbs (Human Cleric played by Chris Harmon), Kalil Bakran (Human Sorcerer played by Parker Harmon), Paddy Brandywine (Halfling Bard played by Preston Harmon), and Rumbald Shieldcracker (Dwarf Ranger played by Peyton Harmon). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team entered a room wherein three festucossis kytons were grafting bones from slain creatures onto themselves.  The devilish outsiders hurled themselves at the party using their unnerving gazes and bonebreaker bashes.  The ground rebelled against the presence of the creatures, causing great spikes to shoot up hampering movement.  The team traded blows and suffered some hard hits, but the kytons proved no match to a barrage of lightning arc and fire snake spells coupled with a pummeling assault from the melee warriors.

The group then discovered a fiery chamber occupied by a ten-headed pyrohydra and a poisonous magma ooze.  Kalil hit the pyrohydra with a disintegrate spell, and Rumbald charged in and hit it with a vicious axe swing.  Meanwhile, the poisonous magma ooze engulfed Boran and tried to consume him.  Boran got off a spell that split the ooze in half.  The team dropped the hydra, and then the team focused on the oozes and rescuing Boran.

Next, the party traveled down a narrow cavern and came upon a pair of arguing cloud giants.  The giants immediately attacked.  Rumbald tried to charge one, but he crossed through the other’s reach, and it batted him through the air and to the ground.  The other giant bashed Paddy to a pulp.  The team unleashed lightning arc and disintegrate and a flurry of brutal strikes.  Rumbald cast barkskin and closed in with a giant.  His bane weapon and hatred for giants soon brought it down, and Boran took down the other.

In a final chamber, the group was ambushed by a roper!  Three of the team were immediately stuck with strands, but Paddy avoided.  He then cast mirror image and haste.  The roper pulled the party closer, and Boran cast righteous might.  Kalil cast his final disintegrate, and the team took the monster out.

Small Adventures — Game Session — 011

Game summary for March 10, 2018, Small Adventures campaign, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, for Small Timers. Session included: Elsbeth Blackburn (Half-Elf Druid played by Maddy Smalling), Goshik Trakar (Elf Sorcerer/Dragon Disciple played by Jack Smalling), Reth Steelarm (Half-Orc Fighter/Rogue played by Luke Smalling), Ricktar Bloodaxe (Orc Unchained Barbarian played by Noah Smalling), and Valetin Krupova (Halfling Paladin played by Jared Smalling). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team was accosted in the night by a pair of massive saltwater merrow!  The sea ogres swam up and snatched Reth and held him underwater.  Valetin rode closer to hurl alchemist’s fire, but he too was snatched up and held underwater.  Goshik cast a fireball that hit a merrow, Gretchen, and the boat!  Elsbeth used call lightning to blast the other merrow, and Ricktar entered a rage and hurled himself off the boat!  He sank his axe into the merrow’s chest and plunged into the water.  Meanwhile, Valetin called a celestial shark to his side to maul the merrow trying to drown him.  Reth managed to slay the merrow with his punching dagger, and Elsbeth killed the other with her spells.  After the battle, Elsbeth repaired damage to the Victory using her warp wood spell.

The next day, the team arrived at the island and rowed ashore.  The Captain agreed to wait for them for two days.  Along the beach, a chuul burst out of the sand and paralyzed Goshik.  It began eating the sorcerer while the team trudged through the sand trying to rescue him.  The team hit the creature with everything they had, and finally Ricktar’s mighty axe chopped it.

The group followed the map to a stairwell in the cliffside, and they discovered it extremely slippery!  Several of the party fell off and hurt themselves crashing down to the ground.  Elsbeth used wild shape to fly up and look in the cave.  She waited for the rest of the team at the entrance.  Suddenly, horrible moans erupted from the cave as two cloakers attacked!  The team used fly spells and potions to get up the stairs quickly.  Valetin summoned a celestial ape while Reth was engulfed by a cloaker and thrashed about!  They discovered the cloakers were vampiric and draining blood!  Elsbeth accidentally brought a flame strike down on top of the entire party, burning them all.  However, that turned the tide of the battle, and soon the team took down both cloakers and entered the cave!
