2020-08-07 Estovion Performs the Wiley Coyote

Points: 3

Combat

Combat with Estovion (and briefly his guards). Estovion is knocked out and falls from a third story. Estovion’s ring is a silver ring of Bladeturning and his pretty polished rock stone thing is some kind of necromantic device to bind a creature to this plane.

2020-07-24 Anna the Spider Pimp

Points: 4

While Lydia performs her music, Corvin heckles her and also insults Anna’s dancing. Estovion joins the group afterward. Cilas walks up to him and punches him in the face, knocking him out. How embarrassing for binging Corvin! The group retires to the sitting room so that Lydia can tell a story. Shortly into the story, Anna hears a scream and begins to investigate. While still upstairs, William hears the cry and Norwich and he go to investigate. Anna finds a massive tarantula that she’d seen in the zoo-cave before attacking Vasoray Webbe. Anna casts Beast-Soother on the tarantula and uses Beast Speech to discerns that it wants food and a mate. She feeds it and conjures and illusion of a female tarantula and has the real tarantula chase it out of the lodge.

Estovion explains that the tarantula’s escape was due to perverse Paucy Troabs who’d sought to kill the others so he could have Markiza for himself.

William approaches Estovion and informs him that he’s aware of the connections he has with the Whispering Way. Estovion seems to feign ignorance and becomes visibly angry and walks away. Bradley Pug Rider follows him and watches him command the guards to post a watch in the Reference Library and in the Maintenance Shed (to keep Paucy under house arrest).

Estovion burns the evidence about his pro-aristocracy work while Bradley Pug Rider (Anna’s Homunculus) attempts to get Estovion to see reason again and realize that he and the party would be natural allies. Estovion reveals that he’s unhinged and paranoid and declares the Party to be traitors to Ustalav.

Session ends on the start of combat(???) between the two guards that Estovion placed at the Reference Library below Estovion’s office.

Points: 10
19:00 Fight the draugr.

Robinson rests for 70 minutes → 20:10

Lydia takes 1 HP burning damage from Anna’s explosive fireball.

Kill vargouilles.

Witness the fungi and immediately close the door.

Kon meditates poorly on his clearing of the stairwell for an hour.

20:30
Kon spends 80 minutes setting charges to the rubble in the stairwell and explodes the rubble so as to clear it faster. In another few hours they clear out the rubble.

23:00
The party realizes that they have to climb up the walls, and set up a knotted rope and spike to get to the second floor of the tower. There they find Treasure in an alcove: two strange vials (K9a).

Stop trying to make me drink poison!
– Austin

Robinson notices a black ooze on the ceiling of another room and closes the door.

Saoirse climbs across the room and begins to hallucinate because of a terrible fungus. She finds treasure: a potion and a wand (K9b).

On her climb back, Saoirse falls and breaks her leg (an injury which would take four months to heal). The fungi begin to move toward her, and Anna and Lydia spring into action. Lydia begins climbing down the rope they’d set up and Anna hurls spells at the fungi. An explosie fireball knocks out the two violet fungi and severely injures Saoirse and the Basidirond. Saoirse falls unconscious and begins drowning as she falls beneath the water. Anna drops a fucking bear on Saoirse and the basidirond (leaving Saoirse at -14 HP (she has 15 HP)). The basidirond attempts to make the bear hallucinate and succeeds. Unfortunately for the fungus, the basidirond promptly falls into a vegetative state. Anna conjures a chimpanzee to pull Saoirse out of the water. Lydia arrives several seconds afterward and attempts to resuscitate Saoirse. Unfortunately, the attempts last for four unsuccessful minutes and Saoirse dies of asphyxiation/drowning.

Meanwhile, Emeric and maybe Kon prepare themselves for a duel against a fucking girallon flesh golem.good luck on that…
