Dramatis Personæ

Wherein the Warband Remains Split Up in Kelmarane and Deal With the Chaos They’ve Caused…

  • Lan-Feng and Thorn find that their situation has turned dire as a group of gnolls rush small prison; it is Thorn’s intent to ambush the attackers, but this does not work out quite as well as he would like as Lan-Feng’s use of her blink leaves her momentarily disoriented long enough for one of the gnolls to grievously injure her. Thorn also does not escape injury, though his is but a flesh wound.
  • In the temple, Arn, Brum and Finn proceed into a wide basement area that appears to serve as a library. Luck is with them as they quickly locate the map that they are looking for; the two mages also spend a few extra minutes grabbing scrolls of varying types while Brum loots the room of silver platters and candlestick holders. They exit the temple.
  • Zistral investigates the holding pen that the manticore was held in.
  • As Lan-Feng and Thorn prepare to exit the jail area, they discover that it is surrounded by more gnolls who appear to be led by a minotaur. The two go to the roof, intending on sneaking around them. As Thorn lunges out of hiding, he is seen … and then hit with a sleep spell from a gnoll caster that he had not seen before. The elf topples, unconscious…
  • Observing the gathering of gnolls surrounding the jail, Arn, Brum and Finn sneak forward and quickly hash out a rudimentary plan: Brum will seek to draw the minotaur away from the jail while the other two figure out a way to assist Thorn. Finn takes a few seconds to weave a message to Zistral, asking the centaur to make haste to join this mess, then casts a distant blow against the minotaur as it advances toward Brum. To both Brum and Finn’s surprise and confusion, Arn then erects a force wall between them and the beast.
  • Lan-Feng rushes to Thorn’s side just as a pair of gnolls climb up onto the wall. She kicks the unconscious half-elf before charging one of the beasts. The other creature threatens to kill Thorn if she does not surrender, seemingly unaware that Thorn has regained consciousness…

  • Since we’re livestreaming our games every Saturdays (6:00PM Eastern) at our Olympus Twitch channel and then later uploading the stream on the YouTube channel, we’ve decided to dial back on the extensiveness of the recap to just the overall outline. Evidently, I’ve been providing the wrong Twitch address on these although Ronnke’s page simulcast with ours so…
