Classic Quest — Game Session — 001

Game summary for March 10, 2020, Classic Quest campaign, Dungeons & Dragons BECMI / RC Edition, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: Cassia Maccala (Human Cleric played by Kaliegh Averdick), Garadal Davster (Halfling played by Parker Harmon), Igrith Irinilorh (Human Magic-User played by Preston Harmon), Joseph Joestar (Human Thief played by Andrew Renfrow), Nicholas Raden (Human Cleric played by Chris Harmon), Riccon Guerrier (Human Fighter played by Peyton Harmon), and Zandra (Human Magic-User played by Casey Scruggs). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team met with a man named Stephan and came to terms agreeing to escort a herd of white horses from the homestead of Sukiskyn to the elven town of Rifllian.  They agreed to meet with a boat captain named Kalanos in a week and head up to Misha’s Ferry.  During the week, they met with some locals at the Rowdy Roddy and hired on an elven trapper named Elowyn who was familiar with the area.  They also hired on some men experienced in horsemanship to help with the trek. 

The group boarded the huge rowboat and started going up the river.  After a while, they came to a crashing halt as the boat slammed into a chain stretched across the river.  A small army of bandits emerged on the bank.  They fired arrows at the boat while boarders leapt into the river and swam for the boat.  The team tried to negotiate, but they would not agree to throw their weapons overboard and surrender to the “Iron Ring.” 

A vicious battle broke out, and the team began killing some of the would be boarders as they swam across.  Elowyn was struck by an archer on the shore and killed.  An armored man on shore was barking orders, and the team focused attacks on him.  A few arrows and a magic missile later, and he lay dead on the ground.  Meanwhile, several boarders made it on the boat.  Some were cut down in melee, but others still pressed in.  One of the rowers jumped up and tried to kill Cassia, but he was put down by the team quickly.  The archers along the shore held their fire as their allies tried to capture the party.

    The party meets Stefan in Kelven, who hires us to escort a herd of 41 horses through the wilderness. He has arranged passage, in a week’s time, on a riverboat for us to Misha’s Ferry. We will then travel on foot to Sukiskyn, where the horses are currently. There are too many to travel by boat, so we, then, will take them, by land, to Rifllian.

    For the week, we bide our time talking to the locals to get information about the city and the surrounding area. Nicholas is also from Kelven and informs us that magic-users are not permitted to perform their magic, though clerics can, within the city walls.

    On the first night we go to a tavern and find an elf trader, Elowin Firestar, and strike up a conversation about Rifllian. He tells us there are bandits along the way, but are kept in check by the duke’s guards. There are also gnolls, orcs, and goblins that live in caves throughout the land. The guards, generally, do not fight them, though.

    As Elowin is familiar with the region, and the paths along the way, we hire him on as our guide.

    We also hire some horse handlers, to help us with the herd.

    At the end of the week, we go to the port, meeting up with Elowin and the handlers. We meet the captain and his crew and head toward Misha’s ferry.

    Some way down the river, the boat is halted by a chain net. We see that we are surrounded by archers and other attackers. Their leader identifies them as members of the Iron Ring and tells us to surrender and become their property, or die.

    The melee attackers begin entering the river. Cassia slings a stone at one of them and rings his bell. An archer shoots and kills Elowin.

    Igrith hits the leader with a Magic Missle, bringing him to his knees.

    I attempt to charm the leader, but he overcomes the spell. JoJo, however, finishes him off with an arrow through the chest.

    Most of the dagger-wielders climb aboard and begin battling our party. The archers from the field lower their bows, so as to not accidentally hit their comrades. One of the ship’s crew members pulls out a dagger and attacks Cassia. She attacks back.
