Reign of Winter — Game Session — 066

Game summary for May 15, 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 (Dwarf 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.

Baknarla used wind walk to approach the complex and was driven back under a hail of machinegun fire.  She was badly wounded, but the team was able to heal her.  Baknarla then used commune with nature to get some more information about the complex.  They decided to try and capture some soldiers and use their uniforms to get inside.  They waited and ambushed two jeeps full of soldiers and used blasts of cold to try and kill them.  Several threw grenades, and they opened fire on Yelnoth.  Kenwrec used his sap to bash one soldier unconscious.  Greta took several severe hits from bayonets before unleashing a blast of negative energy that dropped several of the soldiers dead in their tracks.  The team soon overwhelmed the remaining soldier and forced the two prisoners to drive the jeeps to the Dancing Hut.  They took the bodies, and Shatha used his cold breath and wings to cover their tracks.

The team interrogated the soldiers and found out a lot of information.  From observing the prisoners, they deduced they are somehow magically dominated or compelled.  The team confirmed they are in a far-off land called Russia.  They learned the monastery was recently consumed in a blaze of purple light, but by the grace of God it returns to its former glory from time-to-time.  They learned of four World Anchors in the towers built by Viktor Miloslav, a hunchbacked inventor with a prosthetic leg.  He apparently disappeared after being dragged before Rasputin and several chaplains (called the Brothers Three) and some strange goat with a lantern.  They learned the camp is built through an old cemetery, and there is a strange little girl who seems to lurk around there.  The group learned the correct gestures and passphrase to get passed the gate, so the team plans to walk right in wearing stolen uniforms.
