Ruins of Undermountain — Game Session — 022

Game summary for December 29, 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 group came across a cavern with old Duergar runes and a large stone sarcophagus flanked by large mushrooms.  Purple light flared to life in eyes that opened beneath the mushroom caps as the two mushroom golems activated!  Paddy cast haste on the party and entered the room and noticed wild magic-infused faerzress that caught his interest.  Boran and Rumbald moved in and found their slashing weapons quite effective against the golems.  Kalil cast scorching ray and discovered it was completely ineffective, so he switched to his crossbow.  Paddy activated the faerzress, and it permanently turned his skin bright blue!  He then activated another node and enlarged himself for a time.  The party defeated the golems, and Paddy activated the last node, which summoned a friendly rhino.  They used the rhino to smash open the sarcophagus after triggering a negative energy mist trap!  Inside, they found an old Duergar corpse with a great magical buckler claimed by Boran.

Suddenly, four wights and a lake aptrgangr emerged from the scum-covered water behind them!  Kalil destroyed the wights with a lightning arc instantly.  Boran ended up getting beaten horrendously by the aptrgangr and suffered eight negative levels!  A disintegrate spell finally destroyed it.  They used a wand of restoration to recover their cleric and then found a chest filled with some treasure in the water.

They proceeded through a portcullis into a room decorated with the Mulhorandi depiction of Sharess.  Green energy flared to life in wall sconces, and two cursed kings with crocodile heads appeared!  Rumbald and Kalil cowered in fear for a time while the undead attacked.  The team fought back and destroyed them fairly easily, but their bestial curses afflicted Rumbald and Paddy!  Fortunately, both Boran and Paddy had ready access to break enchantment spells and were able to remedy the situation.

The group then entered a room and were attacked by a bonethorn fungus!  The creature tore into the party with deadly strikes, but the team unleashed a barrage of magic upon it.  With such an onslaught, the creature was quickly killed.  Searching the area, they found a loose stone hiding a platinum and diamond scepter of great value!

Small Adventures — Game Session — 013

Game summary for December 29, 2018, Small Adventures campaign, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, for Small Timers. Session included: Elsbeth Blackburn (Half-Elf Druid played by Maddy 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 figured out the stairs were occupied by a haunt, and they sought to put the spirit to rest.  The haunt again tried to shove them down the stairs but failed.  At the bottom, the discovered a broken skeleton and surmised the haunt was this individual.  They also found a door that they eventually got open to reveal a holding cell with scratch marks all over the walls.  Ricktar entered and was attacked by two walcofinded pirates!  The hungry undead tried to eat him, but the team was able to destroy them and perform a burial for the haunt’s bones as well.

They again tried to get through the door cursed with the black spot but to no avail.  Elsbeth then turned into a raven and scouted the Mermaid’s Lament once again.  Should could see a glow and skeleton in the captain’s quarters, so she landed by the door and turned into a rat.  Behind her, three putrescent shamblers rose up and attacked!

The team tried to rush across the gangplank but were stalled by the nauseating creatures.  Elsbeth was badly hurt and squeezed under the door to try and find safety.  Instead, she found the skeletal champion of the pirate captain!  It attacked with twin short swords and cut her down.  Valetin and his dog jumped the gap from land to the ship and engaged.  Reth and Gretchen were dumped into the sea when an exploding shambler destroyed the plank!  Ricktar jumped across too, and the fray was frantic.  Valetin summoned celestial apes to attack the captain, but he kept cutting them down with ease.  Finally, the team cleared the top deck and saved Elsbeth’s life.  Searching the captain and his quarters, they found his magical armor and swords, a crossbow, an everburning torch, a magical ring, some expendable magic items, a concertina, and a key.

The group then opened the hold and found it partially flooded.  Ricktar jumped in and found it inhabited by a giant jellyfish!
