The team sat down and played cards with the Coffin Man and found he was willing to gamble knowledge.  For each hand they one, the party could ask a question.  For each they lost, he asked a question.  The team discovered that Baba Yaga had been lured to this planet and entrapped by her son, the “Mad Monk” Grigori Rasputin.  She came because he had been murdered, yet he did not die.  He managed to somehow use magic and technology to imprison her.  They learned he and his army have taken over a small town in this frozen landscape.  The Coffin Man warned Rasputin’s army possesses terrible and deadly technology.  Finally, they sufficiently befriended the Coffin Man, and he agreed to let them pass.  He gifted them with a trove of magic to help rescue his “cousin” Baba Yaga.

The group emerged from the hut into a wintery land with a burned out village at the bottom of a hill.  As the team descended the hill, they came upon strange metal discs buried in the ground.  Several in the group accidentally stepped upon these discs, and they exploded!  The explosions alerted strange men in the village below.  They pointed long sticks at the party, and sharp sounds erupted.  The snow burst up in tufts as whizzing projectiles hurtled all around.  Then, a THUMP! sound shook the air, and a strange oblong object arced through the sky and fell among the team.  When it landed, it exploded!  Showered in snow, stone, and shrapnel, the team began to try and close in.  Tulvur charged through a minefield, hitting several on his way.  Shatha flew over the field to land beside him.  Greta and Deska dropped flame strikes on the burned buildings sheltering the masses of soldiers.  Yelnoth came around behind the group using teleport.  Baknarla was concerned about a large metal wheeled contraption nearby and pummeled it with ice storm.  She also dropped a sleet storm over the enemy troops.  Yelnoth blasted away with fire, Shatha breathed cold, and Tulvur waded in with sword swinging.  Finally, all the troops lay dead, and the team collected a couple odd contraptions.
