Sixth Session (11 page pdf) – We slay Xanthir Vang, and then it’s mostly all over but the looting. The extensive, extensive looting.
A spellcaster I can’t grapple? Well that’s a corker. I use my mythic maneuver power to Dirty Trick him while everyone else tries to figure out how to hurt him. Sadly, “area effect spells” are what we don’t use, though apparently they would have been great. After an epic fight, we kill him anyway.
End of battle quote, courtesy Bruce our session scribe, who often lives in a parallel plane of existence:
Calanthe looks at the mass of disintegrating worms. She says, “And thus I am avenged for the deaths of my parents. This is how we treat assassins who have no respect for life.” In saying this, of course, she does not know that she is channeling the only known words of Argrath the Liberator, who uttered a sacred oath to tear the Red Moon from the Middle Air.
An insider note – Xanthir offered a question-for-question info exchange. We agreed, as long as Tabregon answered the questions. This is a bit of an inside joke; Bruce, Tabregon’s player, both attends via Skype (and sometimes gets a warped impression of what’s going on as a result) and is somewhat notorious for not being able to explain things in a concise and coherent way. We all giggled at the thought of this being put to good use against our enemies for once. Xanthir got frustrated fast and just went to combat. Heh heh.
The rest of the time we piled up loot. Next, we’re on to The Midnight Isles!
