Episode 36: Small Packages
The Silver Marches
The heroes are in the Silver Marches. They just survived a hill giant attack and they are quite wounded. Evelyn had gotten separated from the group last session. Anna says it was because she got carried away catching snowflakes on her tongue.
Evelyn finds the group and uses healing magic on Diath and Paultin. She checks on Zog, the dwarf.. He's not breathing. Zog has a diamond that Diath can uses a spell component to bring him back to life. Once Diath use the resurrection power, he can not use it again.
The group looks through Zog’s stuff:
- Diamond worth 10,000 gp
- Ball bearings
- Cow bell
- Empty bottles
- Climbers kit
- Copper jug
- Lantern with no oil
- Lock with no key
- Mess kit
They also find a map with dwarven scrawling on it. Nobody in the group can read dwarven.
Revenge of the Giants
The group travels for a bit and come upon a wounded hill giant. It’s Fo, one of the giants that the group fought last session. He has a rock, ready to heave it at the group. The female is nearby.
Fo is made to drop the rock on his foot, and he calls out: “Fo unhappy!”
The female shouts, "Bring me food!"
The battle begins and the female flops onto Zog.
The male giant is slain. Paultin thunderwaves the female off of Zog using a 3rd level slot, rolling her off of him 10 feet. Zog is alive! Then she does a flying butt drop on Zog. Horrible scrunching sound. Zog is dead again.
Strix and Paultin are next to each other, casting spells. Paultin casts suggestion on the female hill giant, and points out that if she's hungry she can eat snow. She loves this idea and starts to do so.
Strix sees that she is buying it, but Strix tells Paultin that she really wants to destroy her with a fireball. Murderbot takes exception to this and immediately fires a dart into Strix's neck, doing two points of damage and knocking her unconscious. As she drops, Strix calls out to her owlbear: "Avenge me!"
Paultin chastises his "son" Murderbot, who Paultin has re-named Simon. Paultin encourages him to channel that energy against the giants. Murderbot shoots a dart into the female giant, which breaks the suggestion spell.
Evelyn immediately starts referring to Simon as if he is her son and Paultin is the father. She flies over and does a lot of damage to the female giant. Paultin casts dissonant whispers, which does psychic damage and kills the giant.
Evelyn says, "That's what I call a brain freeze."
With the battle over, Evelyn says that they might need to put their son into some kind of after school program
Diath is not happy at all with Murderbot. He questions the evil little thing and makes an insight check. He rolls a natural 20, so he knows that Murderbot went out of his way to use a sleep dart rather than a more deadly dart. Diath also sees that Murderbot is hiding something.
They check on Zog. He's dead! Once again, Diath went to great lengths to help a dead ally and it didn't work out at all. The group is dying of laughter and Anna asks Jared, "How much do you think Chris Perkins hates you?"
The waffle crew decides to loot Zog. Strix comes to and digs out the heart of the female giant. Strix is covered in blood. The heart is the size of a soccer ball. She decides to cut out some fat to use for candles. While Paultin admires Strix for being so 'metal', the sight of this make Evelyn vomit violently.
The group buries Zog. He's flat, so it doesn't take long to dig a hole. Zog's mission was to deliver a message to Citadel Adbar. The group doesn't know what the message is. They decide to head there anyway, at least to let the dwarves know what happened to Zog.
The Waffle Crew travel for 3 days and they are running low on food. They make camp in the magical waffle hut. They estimate that they are still one week away from the mountains.
The heroes hit 8th level.
