The Forgemaster is Taken Down, and a Princess turns out to be a Demonic Pussy

Party Gold = 314,335 g.p.
The party has fought one battle since their extended rest.

  • The night begins with the heroes making plans for how to take down the forgemaster and rescue any prisoners held by the fire giants. This planning is done quickly and in a very organized fashion as it always is.
  • During this planning, Rowena’s wards start screaming that the door to the giants’ room has been opened. With a clear path now, the heroes quickly set up an ambush in the barracks.
  • For the fist time ever, the ambush works! We don’t bother to even get the hill giant leader’s name as Charazin, Ja’Elle, and Tyzzer take him down during the surprise round.
  • The other hill giants look around nervously, but the stone giants behind them won’t allow them to bug out.
  • The heroes finish off the giants fairly easily.
  • Throughout the battle, Tyzzer continues to yell out to Obmi the F*in Traitor. It soon becomes clear that Obmi was merely using the giants as fodder so he could escape. The heroes assume Obmi is going to warn the rest of the giants. He’ll get what’s coming to him.
  • Also during the battle, the elven princess’s guards prove themselves to be mighty weak and unwilling to fight much. More on these pussies later.
  • The drow looks on with disinterested disdain. We’re not sure how long she’ll be willing to travel with us.
  • After the first fight, the heroes decide to take a short rest even though Tyzzer and Rowena are still high on adrenaline and stoneskin.
  • Ja’Elle and Tyzzer investigate a secret tunnel that leads to a vast cavern with several chimeras. * Ja’Elle and Tyzzer politely decline an encounter and run away.
  • The heroes return to the original plan, but suck at sneaking up on the forgemaster, so he’s ready for us when we get there; although, it doesn’t seem like Obmi was the one to warn him. Hmm. An epic fight ensues.
  • The forgemaster manipulates the battlefield. The azers use walls of fire. But, the heroes aren’t really that bothered by them, charging confidently through the ash and flame.
  • The elven archers, whom we had left to defend our rear flank, reveal themselves to be rakshasas. Seriously, Scott, WTF?! The heroes have now been duped twice. We’re just gonna kill EVERYONE from now on just to be sure.
  • The party is now split, but in a tactical way. Bui takes control of one half of the fight, and Charazin surprises everyone with his bravery and skill in the other half. Ja’Elle bounces around and pokes bad guys with his dagger and calls them mean names which is how I assume charisma relates to fighting. Tyzzer plays the roll of defender, trying to keep the giants away from the casters, but when this strategy fails, Rowena shows once again that she can handle herself even in a close-quarters fight.
  • The bad guys fall, and the heroes are poised to rescue the real prisoners.
