Classic Quest — Game Session — 063

Game summary for November 16, 2021, Classic Quest campaign, Dungeons & Dragons BECMI / RC Edition, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: Arminious Ironkeep (Cleric played by Chris Harmon), Garadal Davster (Halfling played by Parker Harmon), Katarina Magdanov (Magic-User played by Casey Scruggs), Koehan Rumisar (Elf played by Peyton Harmon), and Valor Eagleclaw (Fighter played by Preston Harmon). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The group began the treacherous ascent up the mountain roadway.  They found themselves along a sheer mountainside moving across a narrow path.  High up they came across a rockslide.  They tied off Garadal and sent him scampering across.  He used a warhammer and drove a dagger into a crack in the wall.  He used that as an anchor point for a rope.  Slowly the rest of the team was able to make it across. 

Later they found a place where the road had collapsed and a waterfall cascaded down across their path!  The rushing water roared in their ears as they considered options.  Garadal was able to work his way under the waterfall to the other side.  Using his incredible strength, Valor was able to get through as well although he nearly got knocked free.  The two of them secured the rope on an outcropping as the rest of the team did the same on their side.  Koehan tied a safety rope and attempted a rope traverse high in the air beside a rushing waterfall!  He nearly made it too.

Koehan fell off the rope, but his safety held!  He pulled himself back up to the main rope and made it across.  Stephan and Kalana were able to cross uneventfully.  Arminious, however, fell like Koehan!  Much weaker than the elf, he struggled to right himself.  He was able to get across, but it was very tense!  Katarina used their new wand of polymorphing and turned into an eagle!  She flew across with ease.  Selwyn took up the rear and was bringing the ropes across when he slipped!  He fell into the waterfall and was bashed repeatedly against the rocks.  By the time they hauled him up, he had perished in the accident. 

The group had a few words of mourning for their fallen guide.  They wrapped the body, and Valor agreed to carry him out.  As they continued on, a screech ripped the air and a griffon swooped in to the attack!
