Red Hand of Doom Session #9

Here's what happened in last night's unconventional Tuesday night game.

6th level PCs get 1,729 xp each, 5th level PCs get 2,275 xp, and Kiaphas gets an additional 700 xp for his role in the earlier battle with the hobgoblins.


25th Kythorn (contd)
3pm With Avatea conscious thanks to a healing potion, the PCs return to the town and seek out Captain Soranna to warn her about the elite hobgoblins to the west. Soranna and Sergeant Terrence organize town guards and militamen to work with the PCs to defend the town. Enzo and the others position some of the guards on a farmhouse roof and hide others in the orchard.
After a short while, the hobgoblins appear on the road. The emaciated warsoul leader throws a major spanner in the works by casting wall of ice across the middle of the battlefield, splitting the PCs’ forces in two. As Enzo and Avatea cast spells from the trees, Vastori and Grudge are forced to detour around the wall to engage the enemy. A fierce battle ensues: ultimately the PCs are victorious but six town guardsmen are killed, including the sergeant and both Grudge and Vastori lose their horses to a cone of cold. Vastori narrowly survives a coup de grace from one of the warsoul's minions. Both hobgoblin spellcasters escape: one with dimension door; the other with expeditious retreat.

7pm The town council meets. Speaker Wiston, Soranna, Delora Zann (owner of the stable), Kellin (proprietor of the Old Bridge) and Iormel (wealthy landowner) are all present as well as the PCs. Enzo gives an impassioned speech, warning that the townsfolk are doomed if they don’t evacuate. When challenged by Iormel, he responds by calling him a windbag! Eventually the PCs’ words carry the day and the council resolves to evacuate Drellin’s Ferry in the morning.


26th Kythorn
Evening With town evacuated, the PCs decide to head east to Talar, then north to investigate rumours that the Old North Road and Rhest Trail are being blocked. As they go to leave town, a chimera attacks, breathing on Vastori.

Shouldn't that be lower level characters get more experience points?

I think it should also be noted i somehow survived a cou'de gra (or however you spell it!)

And all praise to the spellcasters who kicked arse and saved the day! Well done Avatea and Enzo. Thats got to be worth a few extra xp :o)

Amyway, back to bed at 3.13pm!

Re: Last session
Oops. You're quite right - xp was the wrong way round, now fixed. I've also added the coup de grace incident.

Gosh darn, I'm only 169 xp from 7th level.

Vastori however *must* have levelled as Mike's never missed a session.

I've kind of (well, completely) lost track of who's what level. I think that means Vastori is 7th, Enzo & Avatea are 6th, Grudge, Moralias and Kiaphas are 5th. Or does Grudge have enough xp for 6th now?
