Episode 62: Abandon Ship[ | ]

The Party[ | ]

(Holly) Strix - Tiefling Sorcerer

(ProJared) Diath - Human Rogue

(Nathan) Paultin - Human Bard

(Dani Hartel) Captain Xandala - Elf Sorcerer

Klauth the Red Dragon[ | ]

Captain Xandala wants the ring of winter. Artus Cimber has it, and does not want to give it up. The group summoned Shemeshka, who can teleport 8 people to Chult. The problem is that there's more than 8 people on the airship. Klauth, the legendary red dragon, is flying towards the ship right now.

The people on the ship: The waffle crew, Shemeshka, Xandala, Summerwise, Sir Godfrey, Waffles, Simon, Juniper, Artus Cimber.

The group realizes that if they leave right now, the others might be killed by Klauth.

Diath has yet to commit to the geas spell. Until he does so, Shemeshka won't teleport anyone. Strix gets on her flying broom. Xandala casts fly and invisibility on herself.

Sir Godfrey, the undead knight, says that if he dies, he will be reborn in another body, so the group doesn't need to worry about him. Strix polymorphs Sir Godfrey into an albatross so that he can get to safety.

Klauth can see invisible creatures. He spots Xandala, and chases after her. Klauth is wielding two wands. Xandala uses mage hand to give him the finger.

Klauth wants to know where his ring is. She tells him it's at Port Nyanzaru. Klauth breathes fire on Xandala. She rolls a natural 20 on her saving throw, but she still fails. The DC is a 24.

The group teleports to Port Nyanzaru. This is a jungle city where dinosaurs are used as beasts of burden.

Port Nyanzaru[ | ]

Shemeshka is with them. She casts geas on Diath. Diath is now magically compelled to find the spectacles and the spell book, which Chris says is called X the Mystic's Arcane Grimoire.

Shemeshka leaves.

A citizen of Chult recognizes Strix as a dinosaur racer. The whole group gets excited and wants to race dinosaurs, especially Paultin and Evelyn. Artus Cimber wants to find accommodations.

The citizen hands Strix a trinket. It is a piece of a mural/mosaic tile. She gives him a half-eaten pastry in return, which grosses him out.

The group decides to stay at Kaya's House of Repose, which is the more fancy place to stay in Port Nyanzaru. People in the streets want to buy and eat Waffles the owlbear.

Paultin decides to perform in Kaya's House of Repose. Evelyn is his brand manager. She wants to set up another show for him. He's on his "Drunk and Dying" tour.

A strange man approaches the group. He is wearing a pendant bearing the symbol of a lidded eye, and he tells them to seek the guardian at Orolunga.

After some discussion, the group decides to get the spectacles and the book first, because violating the geas spell will probably kill Diath.

Someone is following them. It appears to be a very pale man with a satchel. The group approaches him. His name is Leric Dashlynd. He's from House Dashlynd of Waterdeep, where Evelyn is from. He wants the group to create a map of  some of the mysterious ruins in the jungle - Orolunga and Nangalore. In return he'll give them a ship. Strix is very excited about getting to name the ship.

Summoning the Sewn Sisters[ | ]

The group heads to the inn. They decide to try to summon the Sewn Sisters. Shemeshka had given the group ink, parchment, and instructions on how to perform the summoning ritual.

The ink slithers out onto the floor and crawls toward the parchment. It leeches into the parchment and purplish writing appears on the scroll. Soon, all of the ink is gone and has become writing on the scroll. It has become a magic scroll that Strix can cast from.

Strix says, "I'll give it a gander." Evelyn perks up and says, "Did someone say Lathander?"

Strix notices that the writing on the scroll looks like Baba Yaga's handwriting.

Something hits the window. Evelyn runs to check it out. It's a winged snake. It's gone.

Strix uses the scroll and she's pretty sure that the hags will come to them when they sleep. Everyone is going to sleep in Strix's room.

Before going to bed, the group spots Artus downstairs chatting up a half-orc woman who is wearing the symbol of Torm.

At night, everyone but Evelyn feels something climb on top of them. A spectral, ghostly figure of an old crone, thin and spindly. She spits into each of their mouths. Paultin likes it.

The next morning, Artus tells the group that he'd like a priest to come along on the journey. He wants to go to Camp Vengeance, a fort held by the Order of the Gauntlet. In order to get to Camp Vengeance, the waffle crew will have to pass by another camp like it that was destroyed by undead.

As the group prepares to shop, Diath notices a winged snake quietly heading off somewhere as Artus leaves the group.

Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, Xandala falls... burning. She sees Klauth fly off to the south, towards Chult. Chris says that Xandala is dead. She took 91 points of damage. End of session.
