First Session (12 page pdf) – We pick up Queen Galfrey of Mendev and roll out to the Midnight Fane to stop their mythic-demon-elixir naughtiness.
It’s the beginning of a new chapter. In a surprise move, Queen Galfrey of Mendev wants to come with us into the Abyss. “OK, I reckon,” we say, and she settles down into the usual quiet and mostly-useless NPC role that all party NPCs do. Weird.
We go to the Midnight Fane, and manage to restrain ourselves from killing long enough to be escorted to the local boss. It’s a big fight, but it turns out most of it was with a projected image from some eyeless minotaur chick that teleports away.
Then we go find a snake lady and engage in witty repartee.
Antonius tells her, “Mutasafet sent us. He says, ‘Blaaaggh!’ And do you know anything about the ecology of ash giants?”
The serpent-woman responds, “While would be very interesting to have a long conversation with you about ash giants, I think I shall have that conversation after you are dead. I have promised my mistress Areelu Vorlesh that I shall defend the Rift at all costs!”
Antonius offers, “You better simmer down or we’re going to dimensional anchor your snaky ass and murderhobo you.”
She does not simmer down, so we do.
