Ruins of Undermountain — Game Session — 027

Game summary for January 3, 2020, 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 gorgon and a ghoul deathspeaker.  The team unleashed a barrage of spells, and badly wounded the gorgon.  The ghoul cast wall of ice to slow the onslaught, which worked to limited extent.  Rumbald chopped through engaged the gorgon.  Paddy moved up on the ghoul to put pressure on him, and he attempted to drive him away with banshee blast without success.  The ghoul protected himself with mirror image and then turned invisible.  Kalil was still able to see and target him, so he dropped an obscuring mist on the area.  The team was slowed just a bit, but they were able to back off and blast away with area of effect spells.  The group then searched the room and moved on further into Undermountain. 

The party came across a shrine being dedicated to Bane.  A pair of baneguard warriors shuffled to block the team’s progress, and a massive banelar slithered up behind them.  The team unleashed a barrage of fireballs and started to approach.  The vicar standing at the altar summoned a fiendish tyrannosaurus and protected himself with shield of faith.  Boran was snatched up into the dinosaur’s jaws after dispatching the baneguards.  The vicar struck Paddy blind, and then he obscured the team with plague storm, which inflicted the shakes upon Kalil. 

The team kept pressure upon the dinosaur and banelar, so the vicar divided the party with a blade barrier while the dinosaur killed and ate Boran.  The vicar used greater forbid action to prevent Rumbald and Paddy from casting spells and then dropped Paddy to the ground with greater command.  Rumbald tried to use arrows through the blade barrier with little success while Kalil was killed and eaten by the tyrannosaurus as well.  The dinosaur died because Kalil was poisoned by the banelar and was poisonous to it!  Paddy was able to get adjacent to the vicar, and he began channeling negative energy while the banelar stung the halfling and weakened him with poison.  Rumbald gave up on the ranged attacks and plunged through the blade barrier to chop down the banelar.  The vicar then used power word blind to blind the two remaining party members.  Rumbald got hold of him and grappled him to the ground where he channeled negative energy again, killing Paddy.  The two wrestled a bit, and finally Rumbald picked up the priest and ran bodily through the blade barrier while crying out for their merchant ally, Ludavic Snerd.  The whirling blades killed both of them!

With the area “safe”, Snerd’s doorway appeared, and the merchant peered out and saw the carnage.  He used magic to raise Paddy, and he was able to acquire the magic required from the merchant to recover his allies.
