Hey, ya know what, reverse what you're doing with the PC names. List the classes/races, and then use their actual names in the narrative. It will read more like a story then. I'm enjoying your updates.
Session 28- All players present.
As requested, the PC names will appear before the log entry.
Scrub- Searlean (NPC)
Rager decided that all went as it should have in the last session. He decided he would attempt to pray to his goddess for guidance on what had happened here (without the toxin incense). He is successful and enters into communion with the deity. The deity gave him clues that lead him to believe the ones who did all this were under the influence of the toxin. He also was given a direction with no real intimation of why & permission to bury (with rites) the two initiates bodies from the wagon.
Meanwhile, Knight, Mystic & Scrub set up camp as stated in the last log. As darkness falls, Knight moves closer to Rager. He notices that the glow infusing Rager is encircled with dark shadows of ravens in flight (one of the avatars of his goddess). He also spots a shadow moving in the night out past Rager. He moves closer and discerns the shadow is moving around Rager and himself. Knight decided to light an arrow (using a cantrip) and fires it into the area. He briefly catches sight of a Rager’s temple war dog (that has been wounded) moving around. He moves closer to Rager. Rager comes out of the communion around this time. As Knight starts to speak to him, he notices a war dog charging Rager from behind. Scrub realizes that they are being surrounded. She warns Mystic and then fades away into the darkness. Mystic starts lighting and throwing torches around their campsite and then is engaged by to dogs. Rager casts blinding light while Knight shoots the charging dog.
Splicing battle a little. As the PCs are getting a handle on the situation, Scrub is in serious trouble out in the darkness. Mystic finishes his battle, casts restore on his weapon pool, and then moves towards her last known location. Scrub goes down shortly after. Rager is divinely inspired towards her location while Mystic is already headed there. Rager is struck by the blind dog he was still facing as he runs to help. Both Mystic and Rager are attacked on the way though Mystic senses the attack while Rager is taken by complete surprise. Mystic kills his opponent while Rager ignores the dog and continues to run. Mystic arrives first to see a war dog crouched on top of Scrub’s body. He immediately attacks and almost kills it. Rager arrives and heals Scrub while Mystic finishes off the dog. They all notice that Scrub apparently took two dogs down before succumbing to the third’s attacks. Knight pin cushioned each dog that attacked Rager on his dash to Scrub’s side. As Scrub comes around, The PCs hear a voice out of the darkness chant something. They all make the religion roll to realize that its sounds like a prayer from the new temple in town. The voice then commands the remaining dog to retreat using Rager temple dialogue.
Game ended here due to time constraints. Running was pretty smooth. Only real pause was a question regarding diameter of area effect spells but it was resolved quickly by a book check. We will be on break next week and possible the one following.
