Chronoshift: Spelljammer — Game Session — 050

Game summary for July 11, 2023, Chronoshift: Spelljammer campaign, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, for Phoenix Gaming Club. Session included: Edonna Match Wushu Lu Klighke (Dragonborn Oracle played by Casey Scruggs), Hekera Nephera Mawhesk Vyk’sebekenka (Sebek-ka Fighter played by Preston Harmon), Helg Ingvar (Aasimar Cleric played by Chris Harmon), Khesen Pavel (Human Brawler played by Parker Harmon), and Neko (Half-Orc Magus played by Peyton Harmon). Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The group hurled dung grenades in at orcs and hobgoblins on the other side of the door but missed direct hits.  Fortunately, the splash radius still affected them.  The orcs fired arrows, and one of the hobgoblins cast flame strike.  Neko threw a fireball and hit most every enemy in the room and set the barricades on fire which began belching thick smoke.  Edonna cast haste, much to the team’s delight; however, they soon discovered the enemies had a similar effect on themselves.  The group began moving into the room, and the orc goons went down pretty quickly.  The hobgoblins, quite skilled rangers, proved quite formidable against humans (obviously a favored enemy).  Their sickles slashed through defenses and devastated the team. 

The group put pressure on the foes, and the battle priest cast righteous might.  Neko took a beating from a hobgoblin ranger, and Khesen was slain by one!  Helg was able to channel positive energy and heal his allies while Edonna blasted away with spells like voidmote.  Hekera moved into fight the hobgoblin battle priest and was throttled by the magically enhanced humanoid.  The ranger moved to flank and put even more pressure on.  However, the party had put enough damage on the foes that suddenly the began dropping as the team tried to press through.  Finally the priest was cut down by Hekera. 

The party investigated a cell and found it occupied by an unconscious dwarf.  Helg healed him, and they learned his name is Fescus Foamflagon.  He was a lost adventurer separated from his party and trying to make his way back to the Yawning Portal tavern.  He gifted them a magical axe allegedly from long-lost Gauntlgrym, a dwarven kingdom.  The dwarf then departed to find safety while Helg put out the burning barriers.  The smoke was thick but not dangerous, and the team decided to make camp and use magic to recover Khesen.
