Session 46 - Gone With the Wind

Nick, Matt, Nat, Jase, Justin

Fendi still has true seeing on, and she can see through the node an invisible “alladin” style castle… probably Yan-C-Bin’s castle.

The winds are strong, the cyclone is gargantuan, our ressources are almost depleated.. how will be survive to destroy this weapon and this node?!

The node is 80 ft high, strong winds, 6 strong cultists: 3 casters and 3 fighters and a gargatuan cyclone stand before us.
The environment is stormy and randomly hits us with lightning, or taking our breath away… lots of constitution saves..

the fight begins.. it starts out rough… Drongar, Kilrin, Nasaug get sucked into the cyclone, they manage to escape

Fendira casts cone of cold, her last high level spell

we are backed into a corner and keep getting pummeled by lightning spells from the caster cultists, so Smitty casts a wall of force to make a barrier between us and the bad guys to help metigate that damage, it works beautifully.

Noswag is an Earth elemental, he decides to burrow under the wall to pop back up in the middle of the baddies – Smitty and Fendira follow in the tunnel. Fendi finds 2 scrolls of fireball in her pocket… and casts one from the protection of the hole.

Kilrin struggles to heal… too much damage is being taken from all sides! but he still manages to keep poeple alive… for now…

From the hole, Smitty uses his pokeball and takes out a bear, he then polymorphs it into a gargantuan mamooth

Fendi casts another Fireball from her staff this time

Noswag gets hit so much that he reverts back to his elven form… how does he play as an elf?! he is so confused.. however, he manages to cast a wall of stone in the shape of a very steep ladder that reaches the top of the node. then, he goes down from all the damage he then takes.

  • he is laying in the pool of blood, exactly where sacrifices are being made to Yan-C-Bin
  • one of the casters (the strong bitch) grabs a dagger from the pool of blood and stabs Noswag for one hit of death throw
  • the demon that was tied to her also attacks Noswag, 2nd fail of death throw…
  • BUT! Kilrin goes before the next baddie and with the wind majestically running through his hair, he heals Noswag saving him from death… it was so close

Fendira goes down in the tunnel, Smitty gives her a potion of healing – she is back up!

The mamooth is a good distraction and does damage, the adds are going down slowly,.. HARD FIGHT!!!

Drongar goes down… Kilrin is a healing machine! he heals Drongar and Fendi. which allows Fendi to cast spider climb on herself and start going up the ramp as the adds start falling

Only the Cyclone left, he starts to head towards Fendi on the ramp, BUT! with Drongar getting the 1st attack of opportunity on it, he reduces his movement speed to 0 and forces him to stay put, allowing Smitty to cast heat metal on the many weapons that are stuffed in it

Drongar is beat up… and to everyone’s surprise (even if he tried to do it in secret), NOSWAG HEALS DRONGAR…… HE CAN HEAL?!

As Fendira still making her way up the ramp with the weapon, The wind still majestically blowing in Kilrin’s hair, he decides to attack the cyclone as he is completely out of spells, he takes out his warhammer and hits the cyclone with an EPIC 6 damage… the cyclone goes down under his might!

Fendira completes the trek up the ramp and gets hit with a bolt of lightning as she is next to the node. with 5 HP left, bloody and depleated of almost all spells and resources, she throws the spear into the node.

Yan-C-Bin appears and wails in defeat. The wind dies down. The node is quiet and destroyed.

Fendira picks up her black hole from the hole, casts her Hut and we rest for 8h. Once we rest, Fendira teleports us to Waterdeep.

We all level to 13!

Session #45 - Passing Gas
Cavern of the Howling Winds

We are still in the Air node

We look at the Drow and aarakocra, plus two air cultists that are still hanging upside down in the debris littered room we fought the Nycaloth.
The drow, male not wearing any Drow house markings
Smitty plays the harp to levitates Drongar to save the prisoners
The aarakocra is a female
They are pretty tortured
The two cultist are unconscious as well the aarakocra – drongar healed them
The drow is waking up
The aarakocra was captured by the feather Gale Knights and was being interrogated by the Nycaloth for weeks.
The drow thanks us but he wishes to leave…
He is named Balix, a historian, exploring the fane of the eye… see if the surfacers are here.
Smitty asks about the mind flayers that attack the dwarves of Delzoun form 700 years ago.
Grugain asks about the Devir family, and their links to the fane… nothing to report
He says all he knows of the air cultist plans is for the Summoning of Yan-C-Bin
He uses darkness and disappears (Smoke Bomb)
Fendira, investigating, discovers a spider silk pouch
holding a necklace of prayers beads… 1 Bead of blessing, summons, curing(2nd level and lesser restoration), windwalking (cast spell as bonus action) – requires attunement by a cleric, pally or druid.
23 platinum pieces

Drongart and Smitty approach the Air cultist who are very sullen and unspeaking. They were on the hook for questioning by Arissy. They have leather armor and dagger. Drongar tries to tell them a speech about goodness.. They don’t listen.. They are air heads according to the omni present and Godly voice of the DM.
“We feel empty…the wind sustains us”
Smitty double talks to them to try and discover about secrets
“We are not allowed in there”
Smytty gets info – Grugain get the empathic reading (insight) –
The cultist say “we can feel its power is North – the priest have spoken of howling winds..
We set them free and they run for the surface.
We try a short rest.. Drongar stands guard.. Nothing happens
Fendira cast true seeing – The magic eyes are still scrying us
They all over the place, they do not move (they go down the hallways) – they have been following us since the beginning
We go eastward with the knowledge of we are being watched, looking for the path northward.
We see a room of fungi and toadstools substance. They are different colors and some are edible and other are poisonous.
We are not sure we want to go but it seemed the only way..
Some glow and a sound of of water can be heard.
Fendira can identify some – spotted white – recognise at a flugush-shlop – mimic a potion of longevity

drongar and Fendira take some – one of the red ones are edible – three lavender mushroom – cure
two amber ones are magic – potion of heroism – Grugain takes one to help with reduced HP
ony good fresh
Drongar tries a red one – con check – he then belches and fight off the poison (but get some hp back)
We find a large pond
Water glows with silvery fish,
A casket on a small island in the middle, on a column that goes 20 feet up
silvery fish. Regular under dark fish.
Grugain detects magic from the casket. I otherworldly leep but the fungus on the column make it slick. Grugain climbs to the top with effort. The casket is covered in the fungus. Fendra identifies it as yellow mold – spores, that is not good – light and fire can destroy it.
Fendira uses cold instead and the spores attacks us.
Grugain is affected by the poisoned.
Grugain gets to drongar for him to remove the poison.
Drongar lights a torch and hands it to Fendria
the mold shrieks and lights up like magnesium.
It reveals a dwarf casket.

after he removes the sword. It is identified as a dragon slayer weapon (no need attunement) + 3d6 against dragons.
Smitty discovers that he is a knight of Basilmer… he slayed a few dragons.. His resting place was never known. UNTIL NOW
We continue north.. The stone passage way seems like it was melted..
Stalagmite and Stalactite .. The howling continues. We continue slowly
Spewing from the crack from the ooze, black pudding, directly in front of Grugain…SIGH!!!
it attacks me and dissolves His leather armor..
He mysty stepaway and uses blight it.
Drongra hits it with a radiant hammer attack and calls a divine might.
It actually screeches and howls .
smitty tries a wall of thorns around it seems to take damage from it. It tries to escape, Drongar hits it again and the thorns rips it to shreds some more, and they spit them into two.
Grugain blasts them with eldritch, not much happens.
Fendira blast it with fireball destroying them both.
We go back through the toadstool room and find another casm away from the lake.
100 feet deep.. We try to pass on the narrow ledge.
Smitty falls off the broom and feather falls.
Thunder fills the chasm and he is defended .. and he talking louder cause he can not hear himself… We all wish to kill him now…
smitty keeps getting knock back and forth in the chasm.
Drongar tries to pull him up, but falls also.
Smitty polymorphs into a giant spider and helps drongar up
The floor is uneven… a cavern lay ahead.
Fendira stealths ahead.. Grugain follows and he does not detect magic.
A larger room.. Whispering wind.
Grugain check to see if we are not being followed.
Its eerily quiet..
We do a perception check and find another large cavern.
We continue to advance at the size of this area.
We find a small area and a green light ahead.
Kyle asks for ominous music.
An intersection with a constant howl.. Green brazier and rock columns..
Blood ropes gore splattered columns
two women with symbols of the air cult cut into their for head are tied to the columns
they are not dead
Drongar and Grugain approach to help the women, and we are attacked by 2 huge Balgoras
They resemble chim char- chim cham’s evil brother
They demons – they step out of invisibility..
One hits drongar with a critical… he is poisoned. .
Grugain blasted him and pushed him back with repelling blast.

Thunder and a storm cloud in the middle of it. We can see an endless sky in the middle and a silvery window to the evil air element Plane.

  • After defeating the fire dragon, the group takes a much needed long rest inside Fendira’s hut.
  • During the night, Smitty is plagued by dreams.

Smitty’s dream

  • Smitty awakes to find himself trapped 700 years in the past.
  • He has two children: bronzesmith & windpipe.
  • Smitty lives a life in Del’zun peacefully for years until one day it becomes ensalved by mind flayers
  • Smitty family is killed and he becomes a salve to the mind flayers.
  • Smitty awakes in a panic. The magic harp explains he has shared his life’s memories with Smitty.
  • Smitty is mumbling random sounds to a harp. He’s clearly cracked. He keeps saying the harp is talking….

Rescue survivors

  • We finish searching the fire node for any survivors (found a couple).
  • Nasaug casts Wind walk and we all turn into wisps of air allowing us all to fly out of the fire node.
  • We tell the survivors to fly out to the earth template and get to a town for help.

From session 33 - 42

Here is a rough gp summary we received from loot from session 33 to 42. I think the last tally was from session 32 where we went shopping in Waterdeep.

Our new starting amount
Session 15: 1552 gp ea

Session 17: 948 gp, 20 pp ea
Session 19: 85 gp, 4 pp ea
Session 20: 293 gp ea
Session 21: 44 gp, 1 pp ea
Session 25: 3 gp, 1 pp ea
Session 33: 7.8 gp ea
Session 34: -
Session 35: – 86 gp, 9 pp ea
Session 36: -
Session 37: –
Session 38: –
Session 39: 84 gp ea
Session 40: –
Session 41: 410 gp ea
Session 42: 10 570 gp ea (All the goods of a specific value were simply counted as straight up gold, if this isn’t the case then Kyle can let me know)

I took the gold given out to the party and divided by five (max player count) since I believe that’s what we agreed. People who get cut or can’t make it don’t water down the party’s challenge rating loot, and each character is getting a prescribed amount of gold for our levels (as far as I know). Since we’re never more than five players around the table I think this makes sense.

Session 42: Here there be DRAGON!
Dragon's are scary

Players: Fendira, Drongar, Kilrin, Grugain and Smitty
Captain: Kilrin

Loot: * Someone’s taken it already
*Scales: enough to make any size armour (Drongar)
- 6600gp
- 8 bottles of wine (1.6gp ea)
- Lyre bejewelled
- 6 lbs of platinum = 3000gp
- Navigator’s tools = 25gp
- Thieves tools
- 9 blue white diamonds (5000gp ea)(total = 45000) (Kilrin for rezzing)
- Opal bracelet set = 2500gp
- Jade jewelled anklet = 2500gp
- Silver Crown = 7500gp
- Carved bone platinum coarsing = 7500gp
- Glass statue = 7500gp
- Game board = 7500gp
- Opal child sarcophagus = 7500gp
- Exotic wood jewellery box = 750gp
- Triangular magic jem – Iounstone of reserve (holds one spell)
*Anstruth Harp (Smitty)
*Staff of Withering
- Ring of evasion
*Rod of Alertness
*Staff of Power
*Dragon’s head (Smitty)

We killed a dragon yo! There was a portal to Immix, an alter and a big colossus statue that had lava coming out of it. On top of it was the Dragon and he was all roided up. It was figured out that if the dagger was chucked into the portal, that it would collapse and Immix would be trapped. After a while, we get started on creating a diversion so that Fendira can fly the dagger to the portal. The Dragon was distracted but he had two lackeys that interfered with Fendira. The fight was like a roller-coaster. Drongar did his tankily duties, Kilrin did his heals, Fendira and Grugain took care of the cultists and Smitty just improvised in the middle (there was a mammoth and it was really useful). After Fendira managed to get rid of the dagger, the Dragon’s roids wear off and he flops over dead (went from Ancient back to Adult with too few hitpoints). There was much rejoicing. Most important of all is that Smitty found his new best friend but didn’t even know it yet…cause he doesn’t understand Darkspeech…YET!

Justin, Matt, Nick, Ben, Nat

- Fendira identifies the shield found previously, +1 shield (given to Kilrin)
- Fendira casts a Tiny Hut for the party to rest after their battle with the fire prophet Vanifer, we are resting in the altar room
- We know that the autction for the magical items is tonight, a unanimous decision is made not to go
- We investigate the altar and find out that the Temple of Elder Elemental Eye is from before the time of the Besilmer. There are warm spots around the zigauraut which is a place of reverance.
Drongar decides to touch one of the pieces of the broken altar and he is almost consumed by evil
- Nausaug used 100gp of Diamon Dust to cast Greater Restoration on Bashooze. This was after discussion if we should or not,… it was kinda fun having an ooze pet.
- The ooze forms back into a Bashaar shape… he looks like Neo when he awakens from the Matrix, naked, googy except with a headband of intellect on his head. Bashaar’s nose will forever leak of ooze like goo

- We move on to next room with Grugain disguised as a fire cultist.
Grugain is not hurt by the cloud and Nausaug decides to change into an earth element and burrow throw the wall of stone to make a path around the cloud.. Fendira follows the tunnel left behind by NS to pass safely… except they dont… NS falls into a pool of fiery water and Fendira gets burned by it but manages to fly away on her broom before falling. NS ends up at the bottom of the pool and decides to “dig up stupid”.

- We see a symbol of the elemental eye that contains all of the cult symbols put together.
We find a sarcophagus that has demons carved all around it but it is empty other than the dust and bones left behind.

- We move on to the next room where we see an ogre pinned to the wall dead, 3 fire minotaurs and a weird symbol on the ground
FIGHT!! these bitches are immune to fire…
- This room is where the Drow used to summon demons but the symbol is super worn out and unusable – Grugain destroys it some more (i think he has mommy issues).


- we move on.. we FIND THE ENTRANCE TO THE FIRE NODE!! it is the disc that goes up and down..

while the party is discussing whether to move on to see if can find the other 2 prophets and weapons or go directly down this node to destroy the fire one, _Drongar__ finds a gong . He examines it and with his crafting experience, decides it is poorly made and throws it down the fire pit…. it burns..

The party comes back with the decision to go down to the node and destroy the weapon. Now how do we make the platform lower? … we look at Drongar and the gong is gone… that was the way to make the platform lower… all members of the party except Drongar facepalms.

As we hear the gong hit the fire pit below, we see that the platform starts to lower.. crap, we aren’t on it.. Kilrin hops on the back of Fendira’s broom, Grugain misty steps down and NS and Drongar manage to jump on the moving platform.

- We have made to the bottom, we are in the Node! As we get to the bottom, we are surrounded by a fiery lake of lava… we see a path that leads from the platform to solid ground.

But since the gong was so quielty thrown down, the fire priest close by sees us, presses a button that removes the path and blows a horn….
