Reign of Winter — Game Session — 059

Game summary for March 13, 2018, Reign of Winter campaign, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: Baknarla (Adlet Shaman played by Shane Bradley), Kenwrec Battleglaive (Kobold Slayer played by Peyton Harmon), Magnus Erlingsson (Alseid Cleric played by Chris Harmon), Svala Alehorn (Orc Unchained Barbarian played by Todd Hughes), and Yelnoth the Dark (Winterborn Triaxian Sorcerer played by Casey Scruggs). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The party listened to the double doors before them and heard a deep voice talking on the other side.  The group stepped back and cast a plethora of spells upon themselves and each other including staples like bless, prayer, shield of faith, mage armor, greater magic weapon, and more.  Baknarla then summoned a greater ice elemental.  Ready, the team burst into the chamber and found themselves in a long ice-covered room.  On the far end, on a 15-foot raised platform with no stairs sat Yrax and Cesseer of Ning.  It was obvious Yrax was protected by a mirror image spell.  Baknarla dropped a sleet storm on the dragon to try and blind it not realizing the dragon could see perfectly fine in those conditions and hit them back with freezing fog.

The party started to struggle getting across the icy floor.  Shatha snatched up Svala and Magnus and flew across to drop them on the platform.  As they arrived, they were hit by Yrax’s cold breath.  They survived but were a bit injured.  Baknarla hit Yrax with ice storm, but the very minor damage was healed when Magnus was forced to channel positive energy to recover himself and Svala from the breath attack.  Yrax then flew across the chamber and attacked.  His frightful presence overcame Shatha and Magnus and drove them into full panicked retreat.  He then cast displacement upon himself.

The party turned about and came running back to the dragon, but he simply flapped back up into the air and flew back into the falling sleet and disappeared.  The party began to get frustrated and meander a bit not knowing where the dragon would go next.  Yelnoth cast wall of fire into the sleet in an effort to drive the dragon out into sight.  Magnus had fled into the sleet as well and tried his divine presence ability to invoke sanctuary.  It did not work.  The dragon ripped him apart.  Meanwhile, Baknarla’s elemental got to Yrax and hit him several times.  Yelnoth summoned a fire elemental, and later was able to dispel the sleet storm.  This forced Yrax back out into the open.  He flew down among the party and hit them again with his breath weapon.

The team was able to close in around him, and several really hard hits were landed in quick succession.  Yrax found himself in a bad situation unable to fly away without getting lots of hits, so he tried to take down Baknarla.  She was staggered, and before collapsing unconscious, she drove her spear into Yrax.  He shuddered under the impact, and Greta hit him again with her axe.  Reeling from these blows, he was unable to withstand the onslaught from Svala who chopped him down!

The team did not pursue Cesseer, who true to her word, stepped away from the fight.  Instead, they spent some time getting Magnus reincarnated, this time as a Garundi human.
