Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

The team entered a large blue-tiled chamber illuminated by glow lava pits and a bright yellow mystery question block.  Four green Warp Pipes were scattered around the chamber.  A small bob-omb waddled to the right, and a green-shelled koopa troopa stalked about on the left.  Up from one of the Warp Pipes emerged a green and red piranha plant that was spitting orbs of freezing cold energy.  The most fearsome foe, however, was a bipedal magikoopa wearing flowing blue robes, a pointed blue wizard hat, black and silver goggles, and carrying a metallic staff tipped by a glowing red orb. 

To start the engagement, the unicorn-like spellcaster, Claude, stepped up (still protected by his mage armor spell) and cast shrillfire at the magikoopa.  The line of fiery sonic energy blasted from his fingertips toward the enemy spellcaster, but the magikoopa nimbly evaded the attack, much to their surprise.  It countered by casting contagious fog which created a thick green mist that obscured the team’s vision and inflicted a horrible disease, the shakes, upon Edonna, Komorebi, and Khesen.  The magikoopa then hurled one of its allies, the koopa troopa, across the room with telekinetic charge allowing it to bite Claude as it landed!  Now amongst the party, the koopa troopa waded into battle biting left and right!  The piranha plant blast orbs of cold amongst the party, causing terrible frostbite and chilling damage. 

Helg was able to channel positive energy and mitigate some of the damage.  Komorebi began a bardic performance and inspired courage among his allies, just in time!  Edonna likewise spelled up the team by casting prayer, which also negatively impacted the koopa troopa, which would pay off greatly later in the fight.  The hulking crocodile-man, Hekera, moved up to attack the koopa troopa, but with the partial obscurement from the fog was far less effective than normal.  Meanwhile, the bob-omb methodically walked near the team and exploded!  Even though the koopa troopa was also in range of the blast, the turtle was able to evade.  Khesen moved up and attacked the bob-omb, and the fog also impacted his effectiveness by making him miss some of his attacks. 

The battle had started ferociously, and it only escalated from there!  Powerful spells were hurled back and forth.  A flame strike from the magikoopa combined with more blasts from the bob-omb devastated the team.  Edonna enhanced the group further with haste.  Khesen jumped one of the lava pits using his uncanny leaping ability and engaged the magikoopa.  Claude attempted to cast his own telekinetic charge to hurl Hekera at the magikoopa, but he did so while next to the koopa, and it disrupted his spell with a horrific bite!  Claude fell back and tried again, sending Hekera at the magikoopa!  The two warriors were effective against the spellcasting koopa forcing it to reposition with a quickened dimension door

With the frontline fighters halfway across the chamber, the party’s spellcasters were left vulnerable.  The koopa troopa ripped into Claude.  The bob-omb released an explosive blast.  The magikoopa cast another flame strike.  Edonna and Helg did everything they could with healing magic to try and undo the damage, but Claude was unable to withstand and died a quick death.  Komorebi’s cloak of fiery vanishing triggered making him turn invisible while making an illusion of his ashen remains fall to the ground. 

Horribly wounded, the team fanned out trying to keep the bob-omb from hitting so many over and again.  Edonna jumped down a Warp Pipe and came up beside the magikoopa and suffered a smack for it before jumping back through the pipe!  Helg cast cherub’s burning blade, but the magikoopa’s spell resistance rendered it ineffective.  Komorebi tried to intimidate the magikoopa without effect.  Hekera was able to badly injure the magikoopa, so it warded itself with a kinetic reverberation, so the crocodile man swapped to his bow. 

The battle continued back and forth, and Komorebi fell beneath the combined might of the foes.  However, the rest of the team suddenly started defeating the other enemies.  First, the koopa troopa fell, then the piranha plant, and finally the bob-omb.  With few spells remaining, the magikoopa was driven back to a high point as the group circled in.  Edonna offered it the chance to surrender, and much to their surprise it did!
