Reavers on the Seas of Fate – Season Three, Twelfth Session

Twelfth Session (11 page pdf) – “Tower of the Vampire Queen” – Collecting their reward from a crazy evil vampire stripper takes a while. Then, they decide it’s time to clean up Lefty’s act at a most inopportune time.

OK, this is where the whole “don’t trust the vampire stripper” thing really started to make this drag a bit, but I rolled with it. In the module, it really was just a matter of going down into a room, messing with some trapped sarcophagi, and coming away with scads of loot. But they distrusted her so much that they wouldn’t go down there.  “Bring it to us!” they demanded. It eventually comes to blows, but the vampiress’ vampire tiger totally owns Serpent and so she manages to force a detente. The players are all talking depressed like “oh we lose we’re minions now” while she’s like “come get your treasure you crazy blood-sacks.” Finally they take it, including the spell-storing gem the Rain Tiger, and depart Rana Mor.

Then mistrust hits a second time. Lefty is on watch and tells Sindawe something’s coming.  I guess he thought it was a trick since Lefty’s still flame-slug-possessed, so he sleeper holds him and the group ends up fighting his flame slug. This wouldn’t have been so bad if Lefty hadn’t been telling the truth, because they’re all otherwise engaged when the gibbering flaming guys show up again (those possessed by Tears of Nuu’rugal sometimes mutate till they’re kinda flaming gibbering mouthers on legs over time). I had anticipated a tough fight where they finally defeat the guys they ran from a couple sessions ago, but since they were in disarray already from fighting Lefty and his flame-slug it was going poorly for them – Wogan spent an Infamy Point to collapse the ruins on them rather than fight it out.

And that’s the session – it was supposed to be “loot some treasure and then have a random encounter” but ended up taking the whole time!
