First Session (13 page pdf) -“King Xeros of Old Azlant” – With a hold full of loot and way too many women on board, the crew of the Teeth of Araska is rescued from their burgeoning soap opera by the appearance of a weird, crystal ship that just cries out to be boarded!
We start out Season Five, as well as the year 2015, with woman trouble. The PCs picked up three aasimar sisters, Aelia, Flavia, and Volcatia, who were basically sex-slaves on Staufendorf island, first of the elder Staufen and then of Amalinda Staufen. But of course, since she was all into the envy, she welded iron masks to their faces so they wouldn’t be purtier than her. Sindawe tries to talk them into pirating, but they are way more interested in bedwarming – it’s a lot less work. This sounds good to some of the NPC officers, who are jealous of Tommy and Serpent keeping women on board. They talk him into it, and nearly talk him back out of it as the women manipulate the officers while the men try to impress them and pair off.
The Mikes are able to get Gareb and Stoke agree to operation “officer’s woman”. They don’t tell Mase about the plan, because “Screw that guy.”
Also, on board the Empress’ Hand, they captured an honest-to-Shelyn Chelish diva (opera singer) named Octavia Selene, who is used to being kidnapped and is not impressed with the quality of the quarters on the ship. Samaritha, who is asking questions about how Serpent has been preparing for fatherhood when their egg hatches and getting some pretty pathetic answers, decides to evict him and host the diva in their quarters to engage in what humans call ‘girl talk.’ (Lest you forget, Samaritha is a serpentfolk who is chronically in magical disguise as a half-elf wizardess.)
Also, since Sindawe puts Klangin in charge of the prisoners’ safety, she gets more screen time, which means more talk of mating with Wogan!
Before the PCs all succumb to estrogen poisoning, they come across an island. A quick shot at the island reveals it to be an illusion covering a weird ship! A strange crystal ship, of Azlanti make. This bears investigation! And with that we start the Pathfinder Society adventure King Xeros of Old Azlant, by Greg Vaughan (and heavily adapted by yours truly).
