Rise Up, or Bow Down...

The Long Night

Episode 3

The group was asked to help lift the siege of Greenest by it’s commander of the watch, Escobar the red, a suspiciously meaty smelling dwarf. After Escobar got whipped to near death by a dragon’s tail, Governer Nighthill enlisted their aid in fighting off an attack on the sally port. Here they ran into a dragonborn paladin who identified himself as Telkas, who had a very awkward conversation with Lieke.
Following this the group decided to go and rescue some villagers from the Temple of Chauntea, which they managed with aplomb. Aplomb, here, meaning another KO for Arlan, a nasty case of rotgrubs for Telkas, and a helping hand from Leosin.

Whilst returning to the keep, the blue dragon Lennithon flew overhead again, and seeing his chance, Hush pulled off an impressive backslide and launched an arrow right into the vulnerable spot of the dragon, pissing it off mightily. It also, however, served to awaken his blackened bow into sentience by giving it a taste of pure dragon’s blood.
The party then bravely ran away.

Back at the keep, the attackers had sacked the town to their content, but one of the raider’s leaders identified himself as Llangdedrosa Cyanwrath of the cult of the dragon, and challenged Greenest’s greatest warrior to one on one combat.
Leshana bravely stepped up, and gave the blue dragonborn a bloody nose with the biggest critical hit of the game so far topped off with a divine smite. Unfortunately, this just annoyed Cyanwrath, and he proceeded to beat her like a red-headed stepchild.

The party are now left in a ruined Greenest town, with nothing but an unconscious cultist and an effeminate, yet dangerous, priest of Chauntea to show for their efforts…

Comments

Arlan was not KOed in this episode, despite the best efforts of the GM, although he did get down to 2-3 hit points twice and had to heal himself.
