(Anna) Evelyn - Human Paladin of Lathander
(ProJared) Diath - Human Rogue
(Nathan) Paultin - Human Bard
(Holly) Strix - Tiefling Sor
Paultin is inside a golem and he was hit with a reduce spell, so he’s child-sized. The rest of the party is fighting fire giants in the assembly hall of a massive, disassembled golem. Evelyn hit one piece of this golem, the heart, with her magic axe, Lightfall. Lightfall got destroyed!
More people enter the hall. It’s Krak Dragonspore in his magic armor, and the golem. Hmm... so is Krak the dao in disguise? Krak tells the group to help Paultin figure out how to control the golem. Diath rescues the animals, who were in the rubble. He notices that the cranium rat is wounded. He bandages it real quick.
Here comes Duchess Brimskarda, her two kids and some more giants. Evelyn sends the heart crashing to the floor. It actually cracks the floor.
Strix is still super-strong because of the potion of giant strength. Evelyn is up on a gantry above the floor. Brimskarda, the fire giant duchess, jumps and ends up hanging from it. Evelyn hacks at her fingers with Treebane. One finger from each hand comes off! Brimskarda falls 30 feet to the floor with a loud crash. Strix wants to keep those fingers.
The duke chucks a stone brazier full of hot coals at Evelyn. She’s down and dying.
Krak summons an earth elemental. There are big doors in here that lead outside. Krak tells them that they are magically sealed and that a fire giant has to open them by uttering a specific password.
Diath revives Evelyn with a potion of healing. He rolls well: 10 points! Evelyn is so happy that she jumps on Diath and hugs him and makes him uncomfortable with the nuzzling. Juniper, her mouse, is handed from Diath to Evelyn.
Strix wants a severed finger, but it is 60 feet away. How big is that finger? Is it a foot tall? Strix is hit with a thrown giant flagon and drops to 0 hit points. Some of the giants attack the golem, but they do no damage. I think it is immune to nonmagic weapons. Evelyn revives Strix.
Krak is getting pummeled. He strongly urges the group to get the doors open.
A giant picks up Paultin, and Paultin tries to trick him into opening the doors. He offers a reward, but is having trouble figuring out what the reward is. Evelyn tries to persuade the giant, too, but rolls poorly.
The Duchess hits the giant on the head and tells the giant to drop Paultin. He does. Once Paultin plops on the ground, she attacks him. Man, this is not going well!
One thing I am thinking is that Strix could gaseous form each hero one at a time, and they can slip through the cracks of the giant door. If there are cracks, that is. That would require the group surviving in here for 6 or 7 rounds.
Another option is to get one giant down to 1 hit point and hold it hostage (I think this option is actually covered in the adventure).
Krak turns into a pile of sand and bails out. One giant is down, and two are hurt. The golem and the earth elemental are doing all of the damage.
Diath spots a grate. Looks like the group is going to go in. Wow.. they need to get out through those doors. Strix is down, Diath heals her with a potion.
Strix polymorphs into a wooly mammoth. It has black emo hair and moths are flying around it.
Paultin rolls a death save. Natural 20! He’s up! He plays dead. Evelyn runs over, slings Paultin over her shoulder and flies onto the mammoth using her boots.
The golem and the elemental nearly kill the duchess. She turns and hits the mammoth. Strix is down again! She returns to her normal form and is unconscious.
I thought she had more hit points than that, but maybe I missed something. I thought she had 127 and she took about 60..?
Evelyn hits the floor and she’s unconscious. The waffle crew is going down, this is brutal! They need to get out of here.
The iron golem drops another giant. There’s 4 more giants remaining. Diath is right next to the duchess, who is hurt bad. Is an ally adjacent? I hope so.
Diath draws his short sword, intent on holding the duchess hostage. Awesome! He might save the party here.
Diath runs up her body, puts his sword at her neck and tells the giants to let them leave or she dies. Chris wants an intimidate check. Ohhh boy. He rolls a 10. Damn it!
Even though that didn't work, it was a great idea.
Paultin takes what he anticipates to be his last drink. That’s where we stop!
YIKES. Good show.
