06 March 2016 Session Narrative
(Beginning Session in combat with Slaughter King Kython)
Just before The Party gets into combat with the major Kython, the Kython speaks out loud in common to The Party. It says he is Cpl Joff Devis and he asked who we are and if the war with the Elves is still on. We told him who we are and the war has been over for a great number of years.
We asked how Cpl Devis came to be in control of this Slaughter King, he then began to tell how the Elves made the volcano erupt around the colony after the magical barrier went up to protect the colony. After the barrier was completely submerged by the lava the area under the barrier began to get very hot and humid. As a last stand, the remnants of the Imperial forces moved the treasure to the prison and holed up there for the end. That is the last thing Cpl Devis remembers prior to seeing The Party.
After determining that Cpl Devis isn’t a threat, as long things don’t become too drastic, the Cpl can become an ally in our current situation.
After resting The Party began searching the pile in the center of the prison, we found the treasure; 100,000gp, 150,000gp/gems and 50,000gp/art. And in the pile; 3 light bombards, 1 heavy bombard, 5 piles w/12 shots each and 200 shots of powder.
Also found was a chest with what looks like a magical lock. After breaking the lock, inside;
1. +3 Light Crossbow
2. +2 Heavy Mythril Shield
3. Net of Entanglement
4. Cone of Calling
5. Javelin of Lightning
To help Raul, he has his bed roll, blanket and silk rope in the bag of holding.
The items from the magic chest was distributed to the members of The Party who needed them the most and the treasure was added to the bag of holding, but the bombards, what’s left of the shots and powder will need to gathered later.
Getting more history out of Cpl Devis, he said the fort was built to house things from Star Fall and the first shipment was the Void Stone.
At this time, The Party is thinking of a way to get out. Knowing that we were tasked to retrieve a living mind leech for Dr. Marcinko, and we can sure use another heavy hitter in our current situation, so we decided to take Cpl Devis with us.
Cpl Devis said the Void Stone is in the lava lake near the outer edge of the dome.
Bilarro, with his excellent hide skills was able to make it to and scout out the lake, but wasn’t able to return to the prison without attracting attention to himself, but he was able to make it to and inside the prison before the lesser Kythons were on him.
Bilarro said the lake is ~100’ x ~100’ with ~2’ high berm going all the way around the lake.
The plan to get the Void Stone:
Split the Party. The members of The Party with good hide skills will take half of the powder to the barracks set a fuse so the resulting explosion can be used as a distraction for the lesser Kythons, return to the prison, rest a day, Bilarro to head off to the barracks to light the fuses and then run to the lake, Cpl Devis to place the kegs of powder into the berm and then wait for the kegs to explode and then have Brasco and the Earth Rod move the flowing lava out of the lake so we can grab the Void Stone and the we move up the lowered rope from The Gambit…but there was a problem.
The plan went off without a hitch, but the Void Stone was attached to something that looked like a Necromental. And it was heading off to the sound of the explosion at the barracks.
Seeing him having the advantage, Cpl Devis was able to take out the Necromental while Vera grabbed the Void Stone and made it up the rope to meet the rest of The Party. Cpl Devis was able to dimension hop to the surface.
Now…we need to come up with a plan to get the armaments.
