Summary[edit | edit source]
Episode 90 - Vicious Mockeries[edit | edit source]
The Party[edit | edit source]
Meat Pies[edit | edit source]
A little girl had purloined the magical spectacles and took off, running. Diath chases after her. He catches up and grabs her.
She starts making a scene in the street, and a crowd is forming. He tries to grab the glasses: Sleight of Hand check: 32. A big tortle tells Diath that what he's doing isn't very nice.
The girl is demanding payment. The group catches up to them, and Paultin casts suggestion on her. It works. The group has the spectacles again.
It begins to rain. The group ducks into "Sebata's Snake Pies", a little establishment that sells meat pies.
She receives a magical sending from Omin: "Strix, where are you? I don't want to teleport into a hole."
Her response: "I'm at Sebata's Snake Pies."
Mistaken Identity[edit | edit source]
He is with a woman named Vajra. She is black, slight and has a noble bearing. In her hand is an obsidian black staff.
Omin: "Listen, Dorth. I owe her. Let me do my work."
Omin says the price has already been paid.
An armored guard calls out, "Stop! Put your weapons down on the ground."
The guards think the group are the evil clones. Citizens begin to gather. Some of them recognize the group.
Omin demands to be allowed to collect the bodies before being taken away. The guards agree to it, and march the group through the city.
They pass under a bridge. The heroes spot the evil clones looking down at them from atop the bridge.
Return of the Awful Crew[edit | edit source]
Diath curses when he spots them and points them out to the guards.
The players actually play both their regular characters and their evil counterparts.
The underside of the bridge has stone carvings of monkeys hanging from it. Strix casts animate object on a pair of them. Two stone monkeys break away and claw their way up to the top.
Phantasmal force manifests their deepest fears:
- Strix: Everyone's dead.
- Diath: His mirrored self. He hates the idea that everyone sees him as that guy. Also, Strix collared, shackled, enslaved and near death.
- Paultin: Wearing the ring of winter and being alone in a frozen realm.
Omin casts stone shape on the bridge. Evil Evelyn fails her save. The ground under her feet softens, causing her to fall through the bridge and land on the ground below. Evil Paultin remains on the bridge, battling a stone monkey.
Evil Paultin thunderwaves the other monkey and destroys it.
Evil Evelyn lets out a shriek of rage.
Evil Paultin sees his whole team is fallen and flees.
Omin says, "This was way harder than I expected. What if I need more than you, next time?"
Strix offers that the waffle crew could help the AI group if they need it. The group is brought to a guard quarter.
Evil Paultin makes a stealth check. He evades the guards and blends into the crowd. End of session.
