Finally, we completed the third chapter of the Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path, “The Hook Mountain Massacre.” We put as many sessions into Hook Mountain as into the previous two chapters combined!
The fun part about this is that Xanesha is becoming our main recurring supervillain, which is a deviation from the scenarios’ plots. But she keeps escaping, getting tougher, and starting new evil plans.
Our PCs are getting into the whole gig of running the Black Arrows – we all have Black Arrow tattoos now and have put a lot of work into making them a force to reckon with. We got the local Hellknight to send us lots of recruits, got the Lord Mayor of Magnimar to send us an officer corps that wasn’t criminals, rebuilt and enhanced the keep, and have equipped our guys with the best captured equipment a sword can buy. After frequent PC-led reconnaisance in force missions into the wilderness, they’re a tough bunch!
