Eleventh Session (17 page pdf) – “Rana Mor” – Though they pretend to look down on vampire strippers, the crew still does what this one bids them. They penetrate to the heart of the temple and kill the ancient undead high priest. Now they shall claim their just reward.
I’m afraid the art for Saeng Ki (this is from the actual adventure in Dungeon) backfired a little in this case. Normally, “hot chick” can be somewhat inspiring to our all-guy group. But in this case, it was a little too over the top, and they immediately dubbed her “a vampire stripper” and refused to take her seriously on the grounds that both vampires and strippers are Chaotic Evil and that she’d betray them in ways few men have been betrayed by a woman.
So even though she’s offering them a pretty good deal, there’s endless back and forth bickering and negotiation and all for the first part of the session.
Finally they move off at her behest and wander the dungeon. I put in some Azlanti chariot beetles; I went through all the Pathfinder stuff I had and pulled everything vaguely Azlanti to use on this whole trip. Then there’s a lively fight in a room full of dart traps with undead monks in a silence zone. It culminates with a long knock-down-drag-out with the main huecuva priest and his mummies; the PCs retreat initially and lead the mummies into some traps and then retreat more till Saeng Ki herself is helping them… Death or glory!
