Ruins of Undermountain — Game Session — 025

Game summary for June 22, 2019, 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 team entered a room filled with amazingly life-like statues.  Examining them stood a robed mind flayer!  It commanded its two brutish four-armed undead skeletons to attack while it levitated into the air!  The team took several hits from the undead trying to get through the door.  Rumbald used an aberration-slaying arrow fired from his aberration-bane bow, and his favored enemy is aberrations, so he devastated the mind flayer in one hit!  A mind blast stunned Paddy, but Boran restored him with a heal.  Kalil used dimension door to get into the room and started unleashing spells like cold ice strike!  The mind flayer cast greater invisibility to try and gain advantage, but Kalil cast see invisibility and was able to help the team aim area of effect spells at the creature.  The undead were blasted by Boran’s flame strike and could not withstand much thereafter.  Finally, the team took the trio down and examined the statues.

Paddy cast break enchantment and turned one of the damaged statues to flesh.  But the man was badly injured and dead.  They realized they should have repaired the statue first!  They tried again and recovered a crimson-haired female elven ranger named Jathal.  After some confusion, she was able to determine she had been petrified for about 50 years.  From her, they learned this area was inhabited by a medusa, or at least was half-a-century ago.  They discussed some tactics and cast good hope before going into the next room while Jathal headed for the surface. 

In the next room lurked the dreaded medusa and her pair of minions, blind grimlock barbarians!  The barbarians attacked viciously, with their axes cutting deep into Rumbald’s dwarven flesh.  The team tried to avert their eyes and move into the room.  They discovered the medusa was a priestess when she cast blessing of fervor on herself and allies!  Later, she harassed Kalil with a spiritual weapon.  The team began to press in and dropped one of the grimlocks.  The medusa cast flame strike, but it only harmed Boran due to Paddy’s evasion.  She then turned her dwarf-bane bow on Rumbald and dropped him unconscious and dying!  Fortunately, Boran was able to selectively channel and heal the dwarf.  Suddenly, Kalil caught the medusa’s gaze and turned to stone!  Before she could smash his statue, though, the team closed in and killed her and the remaining grimlock!  Her death was sudden and complete due to Boran’s well-timed destruction spell!

With the foes defeated, the team then heroically used their resources to bring as many of the statues as they could back to life and free the poor individuals who had fallen prey to the hideous monster.
