We had a successful session Friday with some tough combats, exciting skill challenges (I lied about that one as we did the old dice rolling) and some major announcements.
From the session
The four PCs were able to take on and defeat Acererak and turn him into a Demi-Lich! They were able to teleport away just before he became active but not before Mike put a crack on his skull. It looks like we have the groups villian for future adventures!
For the records
Each PC now has
- 49,917 XP
- 4917 GP
- That means each PC is now 14th level. In the character builder make sure the campaign setting is set at LFR but add (under the campaign button under Manage) Revenge of the Giants as a source.
The star metal
Thanks to Mike it became clear that there are only 5 items total to be crafted (an implement, a weapon, armor, helm and ring). So far the armor, weapon and ring are on the table). The implement and helm are still available. For those of the party wielding the items from the set gain +3 initiative and +3 to surges (which will increase the next time they add another item from the set). Argent will craft one more item after the Hill Giants and the last item after the visit to the Fey.
The option of upgrading the victors of the skill challenge one item from +3 to +4 is still there. So Jordan and Shawn, you can upgade any one item (your armor, implement, etc) to +4 at no cost!
The next few encounters
The party has decided to take on the Hill Giant compound two levels higher than they should be but it will still be a challenge. You managed to attack the main gate but the compound is on alert. Choose wisely as there is little chance for an extended rest.
The choices to be made
Upon returning from the Hill Giants you will have to undertake a diplomatic mission to the Court of Fallen Leaves – which resides in the Fey. This is when the Chaos Curse comes to an end!
Due to work issues (I am the last one standing in terms of administration as the Supt, Asst Supt and MS principal resigned I have been burdened with additional duties until replacements can be hired) I am officially handing over GM duties to Mike after the visit to the Fey. He will take the party through the second half of the module against the Frost and Fire Giants. I will help Mike with the maps and just show up to play.
The new addition
Based upon some conversations with Mike, I will most likely make a wizard. The party looks like it has striker, leader and defender covered.
- Cinder, a Tiefling pyromancer that burns everything – he layeth down the BOOM!
Thanks guys and we next play on July 16th!
