Episode 15[ | ]

The Party[ | ]

(Anna) Evelyn - Human Paladin of Lathander

(Holly) Strix - Tiefling Sorcerer

(ProJared) Diath - Human Rogue

(Nathan) Paultin - Human Bard

Yester Hill[ | ]

When last session left off, Evelyn was about to pull an axe from the trunk of a giant evil tree. There is a giant wooden statue of Strahd nearby.

Blood pours out of the tree when she removes the axe. She can tell that the axe is magical, but she's not sure what it does.

Evelyn holds the new axe in one hand and her magic axe, Lightfall, in the other. She asks the group if she looks cool. She does.

They hear the Friday the 13th noise coming from the stone circle. They smell death on the wind and hear an evil voice calling for its master.

Strix wants to burn the tree down, but Diath points out that if they do that, any creatures in the area will see it.

There's a creature dancing around the Strahd statue saying "Wintersplinter" over and over.

Strix gets scared and casts fireball at the chanter and the statue. Now the statue is on fire, which is going to make things more complicated.

The druid takes 23 damage from the fireball and is still standing.

The druid continues dancing around the statue chanting "Wintersplinter." A tree bursts out of the earth under the statue. It is big, evil and animated. It picks up the druid and bites him in half.

More dirt-caked human barbarians burst up out of the ground wielding great axes. They charge the heroes.

Battle Against the Druids[ | ]

Paultin casts invisibility on himself. Diath hides behind a stone. Strix and Evelyn are feeling a little alone here as the other two are hiding.

Barbarians run up and hack into Evelyn. She has to make a concentration check, as she has a moonbeam spell going.

Evelyn's concentration is broken. Chris says that her moonbeam spell may remain there for one minute, but she can't control it.

Evelyn blocks an attack on Strix with a "Mom arm", reducing a critical into a regular hit.

The tree leaves and starts heading north. Diath thinks it is heading for the vineyard.

Chris is rolling very high. He rolls a critical on Evelyn and drops her. Chris later realizes that Evelyn is actually still up. She should only be taking half damage because she's a werewolf, and they only take half damage from non-magic weapons.

Strix drops a fireball right down on the party, using a sorcery points to protect the group from it.

Paultin has been rolling really bad. The last bad guy is very close to death. Paultin has a chance to kill him. He does!

The group jumps on their horses and chase after the tree blight.

Jared points out that the axe they found might do special damage to the tree and that's why it was stuck in the other tree. He is exactly right. Evelyn soon names it "Treebane."

The group wants to trip the tree. It doesn't work out. The tree does stop and turn to fight the group.

Wintersplinter[ | ]

Paultin decides to use his vistani evil eye power. He chooses to make it vulnerable to fire.

Strix uses more sorcery points to regain a fireball.  With the vulnerability factored in, her fireball does a total of 64 points.

Diath spots a weird glow in the trunk of the tree. The gem they need is inside it!

Diath has an idea - use Paultin's wine to make molotov cocktails. He uses his cunning action to jump off the horse and climb the tree.

The tree pummels Evelyn, knocks her out, and throws her into the forest.

Diath blows the tree up with his cocktail. The gem plops at his feet. It is full of good magic. That's where they stop.
