    Session 3 Continued:

    Pluto is very curious as to what his Knowledge check may portent and while we dissuade table talk to a large extent it still happens. For this given circumstance if he shares his thoughts out loud I tell him it will be in character and have to be loud enough for everyone in the room to hear. I get the following scribbled note back:

    “Not sharing it with anyone right now. Holding it to myself.”

    Aye Aye…

    The majority of the action is centered on the biggest mass of PC’s and they utilize their abilities to basically defend the center and protect the NPC’s. Narratively speaking not much happens.

    Dis Pater successfully manages to engage in 1 on 1 combat with the Grig chief and he proceeds to get his spurs handed to him. If the Grig was water he couldn’t hit him if he fell out of a boat. The Chief for his part is landing shot after shot from the back of his stirge.

    After a few rounds the Stirges all pull back to watch their Chief dismantle Dis Pater and his peers are equally amused by the proceedings.

    Reggie: Aren’t you going to help him?
    Seraphim: Haven’t you been paying attention? He is not the type that wants “help. He would rather die than have us intervene in a fair fight.
    Dis Pater: Actually wouldn’t mind that much…there are dozens of them.
    Chomper: Not really…they are hanging back to watch what happens too.

    The Stirge has a hefty strength bonus despite his tiny stature, but Dis Pater is sturdy and as the dice begin to level out he stages a Rocky-esque comeback. As the room’s attention is heavily focused on the “honor” duel Pluto discreetly informs me that he is whispering in the Canticle cleric’s ear “I know you are not what you appear to be. Turn on your comrades when I bid you or I will expose you to all”
    That simple statement is enough for the cleric to give a start but nothing that draws attention away from the duel.

    Dis Pater is really starting to get the upper hand when alarmingly loud hoofbeats and what seems to be the sound of a bull grunting ring out.

    Seraphim: Our cattle doesn’t sound like that…and we didn’t give them metal shoes did we?
    Chomper: That aint our cows and no they are not metal shod.

    The grigs seem much more aware of what the sound portends and it is every mosquito mounted fairy for themselves as they all peel out through nooks and hidey holes strewn throughout the room. The chieftain happily tucks himself in and lets a swing land center to take advantage of the added momentum. The Canticle and Necro-Ranchers all huddle up from a sense of shared protection and the twins heal off Dis Pater.

    Their holding pattern is abandoned when they begin to hear the slaughter of their livestock from outside the room. Dis Pater and Skalagrim rush out as the casters and Chomper trail behind. Pluto is practically attached to his would be double agent’s hip.

    As they breach the hallway they see a cadre of “enhanced” minotaurs rending their livestock and slashing down the remaining horses. One of the minotaurs seem to be covered in an iron skin, a second is literally dripping venom from his horns and claws. A third is literally cooking the cattle with blasts of fire.

    Skalagrim: The bulls are eating our cows!
    Chomper: I’ll be damned…figured we would be the only cannibals for at least a few more weeks.

    (Small side confession…given their relative ease in progression so far I ramped up the minotaurs perhaps a bit more than I should have)

    The hobogoblin and najanti throw themselves at the iron bodied minotaur and are about as effective as a Kleenex plugging a hole in a dam. The entire group gets their asses handed to them in convincing fashion and are forced to retreat as their herd is dismembered and floated away. Nothing like psionic telekinesis to transport BBQ.

    Seraphim: We just got cattle rustled by minotaurs…
    Canticle Paladin: You drove a herd of cattle and horses into a dungeon?
    Canticle Bard: They also are apparently using skeletons of said herd as mounts.

    As things are now calming the two groups are inching further and further apart in a patient and polite “we are probably going to start killing each other any minute now” fashion.

    Seraphim: I think that a preemptive truce and parley are in order…

    The cavalier draws forth a longsword and hefts his shield.

    Seraphim: Please?


    Sorry for it being a short update. Will try to get a full section up by weekend.

    This and Seraphim's "Please?" hilarously rounded out the all-too-brief experience. I just laughed more than I have in days.

    Is there more? You must give us more.

    Table talk for us is two different things. It is using information the player has knowledge of but not the character. I.e. "hey guys the doppleganger we have been tracking caught me...so its not really me". That would be a blatant example.

    Or it spending ten minutes to discuss actions and coordinate attacks mid combat. A few seconds is fine. Blueprints and extensive flow charting mid flow is not allowed.

    I'm defiantly still alive. Current priorities involve helping my wife with our newborn baby girl (she is almost six weeks old). So as much as I would love to update the remainder of what we finished I am on an indefinite hiatus right now. Got about nine long game days completed that would need to be written up. No eta on when that may happen yet.

Counting to six and uttering the word after each number will give a fairly accurate measure of the time it takes to cast a spell. Because the chanter has gone all the way around the hexagon, this interval is known as a "round."

    Saw this got updated and back to the front page and realized it had been over a year since I had posted. Tried to wrangle some free time and break in my typing hands again. In truth I have missed writing these and recapping. Spare time is still at a minimum, but with holiday season in retail complete I figured I would try to get something up once or twice a week. Happy New Year all!



    Session 3 Completed

    Spoiler
    Show
    Brief Recap:

    When I last left off recapping this campaign the PC’s were set to clash against a rival NPC party. Neither side was in much shape to fight as they had both just been in involved in hefty skirmishes against barbarian grigs and psionic minotaurs. Both sides had expended considerable resources and for sake of clarity I want to highlight a couple points.

    Undead Minions: At this point Seraphim had her skeletal unicorn (Snowflake) but all other undead minions were currently destroyed. The dhampir clerics did have 8HD a piece tied up in skeletal gnolls they had left with the gnoll chieftain Rusk.

    Other minions: Chomper has his Spinosaur, Skalagrim his anklosaur.

    Seraphim is doing her best to let cooler heads prevail and prevent further violence (at least til it’s more suited to their purposes) but reason is being pushed to the wayside in favor of prejudice.
    The Cavalier and Paladin are dead set on eliminating what view as heretics and blasphemers while the Magician and Ranger are not going to avoid backing their play. The double agent Cleric is in a tight spot realizing his cover could be blown. A third party intercedes to try and put sense into place and it is from an unlikely source.

    Reggie: Whoa everybody. I realize how awful they look but you got to trust me that they are on the level. My whole party got wiped out and they kept me alive. When we got inside two weeks ago there was a poor shmuck on his last leg and they healed him, fed him and took him in. Every group we have met they have fought to protect their own lives but they have sought mercy and provided protection to those willing to accommodate them. I know the undead thing is creepy but sometimes you got to play the hand dealt to you.

    The Halfling gives an emphatic and heartfelt speech, a heavily omitted speech, and gets everyone to back off and relax a bit. The two sides agree to back off and give each other a day to recuperate. The group is somewhat perplexed that their reluctant companion would come to their aid and press him(by proxy me as DM) why the sudden change of heart.

    Reggie:If I have learned anything from my time with you guys it’s that its better to give you time to control events. Less people get murdered or cannibalized that way. I guess to put it bluntly I feel safer knowing the demons are on my side.

    With that line Dis Pater and Skalagrim straight up jump from their chairs and high five each other.

    Dis Pater: I told you I would Stockholm syndrome someone within the first month!

    Yep…they are congratulations each other on making the gnome so desperate that he views his captors as a better option than the “good guys”.

    By happenstance this is all occurring right at the day 15 mark. As the U.C. are gearing up and prepping for a potential run in against the Canticle all the party members with hair on their bodies notice the hair standing on end. An arcing crackle sounds through the halls outside and there is a deafening groaning sound like rusted metal being pulled apart. The whole interior structure of the room they are in beginning to pulse with a faint red light and sigils that were previously invisible light up in a clear neon green.

    Seraphim: Anyone have a read on the symbols?

    Negative from all fronts.

    They elect Chomper to poke his head into the hallway and see what is going on. I smirk while handing him a description.

    The goblin barely gets his head out the door when a crackle of electricity sends him flying back into the room. His eyes are bugged out wide open and his character frantically pleads for someone to close the door.

    Chomper: Lock it…bar it…throw anything you can to keep it shut. NOW! NOW! DON’T HESITATE.

    Something passes the room they are locked in and sounds far beyond anything witnessed by mortals cascade against the barred portal. The illumination and sigils persist for exactly one hour then cease. The group is desperate for an explanation for what he saw. A highly distraught and traumatized Chomper does his best to explain what he caught a single glimpse of.

    (I had mentioned in the initial onset of this campaign’s description that dragons existed, they were rare and barely ever messed with but knowledge of the creatures was common…if not entirely accurate)

    Chomper: It was like someone severed the head of a massive dragon…and suspended it mid air. It was black as night and looked dusty. It had lots of eyes…at least six…maybe ten, all suspended at the end of stalks. It had brackets of metal drilled into it’s skin from all angles like someone did a horrible patch job using rivets. Metal rods like horns stood from the top and seemed to gather electricity. The eyes were sweeping the hallways while blasting forth rays of something. I saw a creature running and midstride a ray caught it…and it was just gone. Not even ash remained. Then the electricity caught me. I have never seen anything like that before. Just a glimpse of it left him quivering and practically paralyzed.

    In character they have zero idea of what is going on or what that sighting signifies. Out of character I have some very experienced and seasoned gamers giving me a cold look and asking mouthing the question…

    “Half dragon beholder?”

    It’s enough of a change in status quo to leave them reeling and reacting instead of maintaining the tempo and dictating the pace of events. Currently they are depleted on undead minions, scared out of their minds over the unknown creature just sighted and what its intentions are, and aware of a rival NPC party that has had time to get their legs back under them. There is also still the lingering presence of stirge mounted grig barbarians (Dis Pater is not one to leave a grudge lightly) and some cattle thieving psionic minotaurs. We end session on that note as they try to regroup.

    Side Notes:
    *The creature they sighted is indeed a dragon/beholder hybrid. More construct than independently intelligent creature. It is intended as a cleaning mechanism, like a street cleaner but with disintegration and acid. Unless interfered with it follows a specific route cleaning the halls then ends its path within a hidden recess in wall. If you mess with it’s progress it will stop is preprogrammed path and defend itself. It runs once a month. They don’t know this and how they react because of that is hysterical.

    It's definitely overkill. But it fits with the overall backstory of the mega dungeon. It's also a really cool visual and strange application of that creatures particular abilities.
