Session 10

Giant Before Keep, Brigands Before Brava (2015-Jan-02)

  • gather up the five rescuees to head back to the keep when we noticed a stone statue of a warrior standing outside the entrance of an unexplored cave about 200’ clockwise from us around the curve, looking in
    • Laurent sent Nick to peak inside, who then had to make a saving throw after making eye contact with a Basilisk
    • we ran off, using Nick to look behind us and see what was happening; the Basilisk came outside, un-petrified the warrior’s arm, and started eating it
  • on the road back to the keep we were attacked by a Hill Giant and brought it down; Hoth removed the head, Laurent created a make-shift sled for it out of a sack, and Shava pulled it behind her in bear form back to the keep
  • party at the keep:
    • misc shopping and errands (hire butcher to strip giant head down to bone)
    • talked to the Castellan to get permission to host/cater a bonfire party outside the keep around the giant head, then paid the barkeep to cater it
    • Wart again tried to score with the barkeep’s daughter, making him outright hostile to him
    • several party members scored gambling winnings
    • Enzo chatted up the five rescuees and discovered that the Dwarf works for a Gnome who heads the Tinkers’ Guild in Brava, and who is known for paying exorbitant bounties for exotic animals (5,000gp for an Owlbear egg)
    • learned the names of the merchant’s kids: Kearen (22M), Finnebhar “Finn” (18F), Brigid (15F)
  • next day:
    • woke up late, bought horses for everyone, set off to track the Hill Giant back to it’s lair for loot
    • found four Dire Wolves feasting on the carcass; Shava used Speak with Animals to negotiate peaceful passage past them
    • followed the trail until Shava spotted two more Hill Giants; decided to call off the mission and headed back
    • Ooli (with help from Hoth) decided to offer delivery service for goods from Brava to make money on the side and collected 350gp worth of orders
  • next day:
    • bought four more horses from party treasury for the 4 VIPs we’re escorting to Brava (3 merchant’s kids and Dwarf)
    • hit the road
    • ambushed by a veteran with a crossbow hidden behind a fortification on high ground and his two hired berserkers; killed the beserkers and took the veteran prisoner
