Reign of Winter — Game Session — 091

Game summary for January 1, 2019, Reign of Winter campaign, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: Deska Starseeker (Half-Elf Druid played by Kaliegh Averdick), Erris (Arctic Elf Bloodrager played by Casey Scruggs), Iguruzu Koshin (Human Monk played by Peyton Harmon), Magnus Erlingsson (Human Cleric played by Chris Harmon), and Tulvur Xandersen (Troglodyte Fighter played by Taylor Averdick). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team had an audience with Queen Esmyra of the maftets and agreed to help her defend her city against invading nuckelavees in return for her taking them to the tree under which Baba Yaga’s death is allegedly buried.  The Queen was supposed to offer herself as sacrifice to the nuckelavees to spare her people, but the party used that as an ambush on four of the monsters.  The creatures unleashed horrible diseased breath weapons that harmed several of the party.  However, Shatha breathed cold upon them, and Magnus’ holy aura struck two blind.  Deska and Magnus converted weapons to cold iron using magic.  Tulvur slashed away with Icebiter, and Deska called down divine fire to devastate the creatures and then finished some off with fire snake.  In a few short moments, the creatures were killed.  Deska’s scouting owl overheard several nuckelavees in the water give the order to invade.  The team then tried to convince the Queen to take them to the tree right away, but she refused saying she would only do so once her city was safe.  The group reluctantly decided to help but seriously considered abandoning them to their fate.  They divided the citizens between the two buildings and kept the owl patrolling.
