Chronoshift: Spelljammer — Game Session — 014

Game summary for August 23, 2022, Chronoshift: Spelljammer campaign, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: Crimson “Pyro” Deathcloud (Tiefling Alchemist played by Peyton Harmon), Hekera Nephera Mawhesk Vyk’sebekenka (Sebek-ka Fighter played by Preston Harmon), Helg Ingvar (Aasimar Cleric played by Chris Harmon), Intevar Dagella (Centurian Drow Silent Hunter played by Casey Scruggs), Khesen Pavel (Human Brawler played by Parker Harmon), and Sienna Whispermist (Half-Elf Cleric / Illusionist / Rogue played by Todd Hughes). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team decided to use the ballista to fire upon the catapults.  Crimson had some engineering expertise and served as crew chief while Hekera and Khesen began cranking the ballista around.  The drow catapult crews frantically began turning the catapults upon them!  Helg, Sienna, and Intevar took off through the keep to try and attack the drow in melee while the ballista fired away.

Two catapult shots went wide, and Crimson fired the ballista and struck a catapult!  They then began reloading.  Meanwhile, the assault crew climbed up through the trap door and engaged the first catapult crew.  The trio ripped into the drow in a stunning display of violence and skill bolstered by Helg’s Valhallan prayers.  The other catapults succeeded in destroying the ballista, so the rest of the team rushed into the keep to try and make it to the catapults. 

The assault team went running across the roof firing arrows and magic missiles, dropping drow as they went!  The remaining drow drew forth blades and attacked.  They landed several blows, but they were greatly overmatched.  The group defeated the drow as the rest of the team arrived, and they destroyed the rest of the catapults. 

With no siege engine crews remaining, the party walked unmolested to the docks.  From there they learned Alton had left heading into space toward a star.  They boarded the damselfly and flew back to the Perry.  There they gave a harbor moon to Sailmaster Tuk and talked to him about the star.  He told them it is called Alastriel.  He explained it is actually a portal into the Phlogiston, and he told them why such an opening does not flood the sphere.  They then talked to First Mate Flick and told him their destination.  He also got Crick and Vick to tie up the damselfly for towing.  They then set out with the warning that after a few days, it was going to get really, really cold as they get further from the sun.
