Session Recaps

Post#1 » Wed May 23, 2018 11:04 pm

Session One

Four mysterious individuals come across an equally mysterious monster which has appeared near the Temple Citadel square of Ephe. In the midst of people screaming and running away, they fight the creature, revealing a young Tiirthan who was the creature itself. Spiriting them away from the authorities, they formally meet each other and the Tiirthan in an alleyway, before deciding to head into the seedier part of town to grab a few drinks. While trying to unravel what happened and get to know each other, the Tiirthan ingests "fairy dust" (slang), and he immediately begins to morph back into the monster. Subduing him, they head outside and begin to figure out how to get the Tiirthan home.

Session Two

After retrieving a map and information on where to best find the Vaults of Tiirtha, the group experiences a miserable failure as they attempt to break into a local store to steal supplies. They catch a balloon down to the Ephean docks and catch a final glimpse back at the massive and beautiful city. Upon landing they split up to find supplies and a boat. Elgin and Mothy procure a giant necklace bedecked with massive red rubies and pawn its companion chest for a modest monetary gain and incur a mysterious debt from the salesman Tibba Smith. They realize without knowing how long the journey would be, they could not get sufficient supplies, and so regroup with Elthera, Lullabelle, and the Tiirthan Garu. Lullabelle charms her way into getting them free passage on a 30,000gp galley. A deckside gala is thrown in their honor and so they went to the baths and got fantastic outfits. An ancient bronze dragon blesses the ship as is tradition before setting sail, and the party begins. Lullabelle befriends a beautiful woman who she discovers IS the bronze dragon, and after revealing her abilities the dragon trusts Lullabelle enough to give her information on where to find the Vanishing Isle of Hbral in order to locate the first Vault Relic. Mothy befriends a handsome onion knight who reveals how to supposedly find the Vaults themselves.

Session Three

After a good night's sleep and hot baths to wake up Lullabelle and Mothy share the information they've acquired with their comrades. Elthera speaks to the Captain and convince him to let them see his maps to calm Elgin's feigned fear of the ocean while Mothy and Garu have a quiet time visiting while Lullabelle looks through the window at the ocean. Elthera distracts the Captain's son while Elgin makes a copy of the map of their known world and looks around the cabin. She obtains a pair of cheating dice, a collapsible spyglass, and a compass. While looking at the Captain's desk she notes a feverishly scratched note "She's here". Elgin looks at the captain's private journal and takes it as well. She shows it to Lullabelle who discovers the captain's obsession with the dragon and the various parts of the dragon's anatomy (and their magical properties). Lullabelle rushes Mothy and Elthera to the dragon's quarters where they discover signs a struggle and the remains of fairy dust, leaving Elgin with Garu. The Captain catches wind of a Tiirthan being on board and enters their quarters, taking Elgin and Garu prisoner. He throws them in a room with the imprisoned dragon-woman. Lullabelle, Mothy, and Elthera search the ship for Elgin, Garu, and the dragon-woman. Mothy encounters the onion knight again and he reveals his stores of fairy dust (which he smuggles) were tampered with, and he saw people being taken through a door in the galley. He confides in Mothy that he was intending to fake being drunk and barge into the room as they talk on the deck. Mothy runs off to tell Lullabelle and Elthera what she's learned. They decide to concoct a distraction.

Session Four

Mothy, Lullabelle, and Elthera create a plan to distract everyone in the galley with a performance in an effort to draw the guards out of the back room. Mothy goes back to get the onion knight but finds him missing. They proceed with their plan and Lullabelle and Elthera successfully pull off their distraction. Mothy sneaks into the room to find Elgin, Garu, and the dragon-woman. After a lot of fumbling around Mothy remembers she is a magical girl and transforms, granting her double stats for a minute and a half. She bends the bars of the cage and breaks the dragon-woman's chains. Initially Garu carries the dragon-woman on his back until they realize she is covered in fairy dust. Mothy carries the dragon-woman instead, but then guards come back to the room. Mothy shoves one guard down the stairs and Elgin Commands the other to Halt. Attaching a rope to the window Mothy shimmies with the woman on her back across the outside of the ship and pulls herself up on deck. Garu follows with Elgin on his back. Lullabelle and Elthera slip out of the galley and they all regroup. However, the captain and his crew confront them on the deck as a vicious storm rolls in. The captain's son comes to the deck to witness everything. When they attempt to take the dragon-woman, she steps off the ship rather than be taken by them, grievously wounded. Lullabelle successfully Sleeps half the attacking crew and she, Mothy, and Elgin make it to the other side to the lifeboats. Elthera is grabbed by the captain and Garu is grabbed by two crewmembers. Elthera is knocked unconscious by the captain, and Garu is also beaten unconscious by the two mates. Lullabelle is almost bloodied by four of the crew. Seeing no way out, they all transform, activating their temporary bonuses. Elgin is able to Bane two of the crewmembers, and Mothy kills one of the crew holding Garu and injures another. Lullabelle casts Hideous Laughter on the captain successfully and runs to Elthera, pulling her onto her back. The remaining crewmembers are focused on Lullabelle and Mothy.

Session Five

Elgin heals Elthera who immediately taunts the captain and is knocked out again. Mothy and Lullabelle sustain extensive injuries as Connor - the captain's son - looks on confused and helplessly. Lullabelle successfully sleeps five of the crew and Mothy kills the last crewmember holding Garu. Elgin again heals Elthera who transforms and stealths, reappearing later to shoot an arrow at the captain. Her shot misses and she instantly kills Connor. Witnessing his son's death, the captain becomes enraged and inhales a large amount of fairy dust before throwing the rest onto Garu - triggering a transformation reaction. Elgin creates a massive amount of water and washes off most of the dust from Garu and he fights to stay in control. The rest begin to attack the captain relentlessly. He seems mostly unfazed though they successfully bloody him, before he turns to attack Elgin who he has pinpointed as the reason people keep getting up to fight. As he moves to attack Elgin the onion knight pulls himself from the side of the ship having survived the captain's murder attempt and begins to fight the captain. The captain bears down on him and plunges his sword into the onion knight's chest. As he dies he thanks Mothy for showing him kindness. The group begins to batter the captain and he stumbles backwards to the other side of the ship and holds onto the railing. A pillar of lightning plunges into the ocean and the Bronze Dragon shoots out of the water, fully rejuvenated. With a snap she swallows the captain's head and his body tumbles into the ocean. Returning to her human form she washes the corpses from the deck and thanks the group for their work - especially Lullabelle. She presents Lullabelle with a bronze Ouroboros as a token and announces Lullabelle to be her avatar - imbuing Lullabelle's physical attacks with additional lightning power when transformed. She then heals the group and calms Garu. She walks over to the bodies of Connor and the onion knight Riker and sadly says she can only bring one back. They choose Riker. He is revived and bound to the dragon, and they return to the ocean. The group decides to use Lullabelle's Disguise Self to trick the remaining crew who took refuge during the storm into thinking she is the captain. They move their belongings to the captain's quarters and secure an emergency rowboat outside the windows before preparing to deceive their way once more to their destination.
