Chronoshift: Spelljammer — Game Session — 024

Game summary for November 8, 2022, Chronoshift: Spelljammer campaign, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, for Phoenix Gaming Club.

Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The Perry arrived at the edge of Pirtelspace’s Crystal Sphere and a portal into the Phlogiston.  First Mate Flick reminded them of safety precautions in the Flow such as not using sources of heat, fire, or sparks due to the explosive nature of the gas.  Also, extra-dimensional travel and spaces are inaccessible, so things like bags of holding, dimension door, blinking, and summoning monsters will not work.  He also reminded them that divine casters may use spells over 2nd-level, but they may not recover them until returning to a Crystal Sphere because the deities are unable to reach into the Phlogiston.  The team went through and stowed away their fire-based equipment.  The trip to Refugespace is estimated to take 45 days. 

The team then proceeded to leave Pirtelspace into the radiant splendor of the Phlogiston!  Its shear beauty was nearly overwhelming, and the immensity of it nearly maddening.  A day or two into their Flow travels, a pair of space stingrays were swept into the gravity plane.  While the creatures began to awaken, the party unleashed a barrage of ranged attacks upon them.  Neko used his wand of magic missiles, Intevar opened up with her hand crossbow, and Helg cast spiritual weapon.  When the stingrays came to, they began using fly-by attacks and proved fairly nimble at maneuvering.  The stinging creatures hit Khesen and Hekera with their barbed tails, and both were poisoned.  Khesen took the worst of the effects and fled into the ship for safety.  Helg enhanced his combat capabilities with more spells and began landing numerous hits with spiritual weapon.  Intevar had some success with her crossbow but was unable to poison the rays.  Neko used a mix of magic missiles and mind thrusts to tear into the animals.  Hekera finally caught one within reach and cut it down, and Helg brought down the other. 

After the battle, the team swarmed to their poisoned allies and nursed them to some semblance of health.
