Fourth Session (15 page pdf) – Dr. Vaus turns into his alter ego Ironface and head butts the Grey Friar till they both regret it. Then, shopping! And then we meet the most helpful ghasts in the world. And then we fight fight fight.
First, Bruce our session scribe treats you to an extended bout of more-purple-than-usual prose. I missed the Grey Friar fight because I was taking my daughter to band camp, but I got there in time for the shopping!
We went to Gallowspire and fought the ravener first. That’s like a dracolich but not copyrighted, apparently. I liked the end scene where I gently send him to his rest courtesy of my (Su) Healing Hex.
Then we had one of those shitty D&D fights, with “dreams” that look and act all undead but aren’t because they know we have anti-undead stuff going on, and they spam fear and confusion and such on us all combat. Yay, I got to spend the whole combat running away. That’s one game mechanic that needs to die in a fire, it is so un-fun.
Then we rested. Then we fought two devourers and a nightshade, and went to rest again. I summoned a celestial triceratops again but to make it more Indian-y I insisted it was an ancient psychic tandem war elephant (see pic above!). Dr. Vaus’ force bombs are the one thing that actually allows us to dump damage onto anything in this craphole.
I’m not too jazzed with this final chapter, but next time should be the climax!
