Our 5th-7th level PCs are fighting a red dragon, at least 50' long.
I always assumed that sort of thing would be of little interest. Game reports being what they are.
We did have some memorable moments last night. Almost immediately after the purple worm fell, the party was beset by a small raiding party of drow, who were likely drawn by the commotion. These were wearing black chain, and they rained poisoned arrows on the party. Astrid (NPC Incantrix) and the charmed Cloud Giant are swiftly slain. Centien, the ranger, flew toward the drow position, where they stood defiantly, spider-climbing on the vertical face of one of the great basalt pillars. He was at an elevation of 20' and moving at full speed when the drow cast command: plummet. The crash was no gentle to him.
Meanwhile, the drow squad on the other pillar, fired on the wizard and the Thief, wielding a wand of fire, encircled the base of the pillar with a wall of fire, which drove the drow higher up (they were taking dmg from the heat). Scalia, the cleric, then cast dispel magic on them. Two of them failed MR and the spider-climbs were then dispelled. They fell from nearly 50' into the flames.
Later, after some back and forth between the stronghold and the dungeon, the party attempted to teleport directly to the cavern where a mythic suit of armor hangs, using a teleport w/o error scroll and based on a detailed vision one of them had had of the location. The scroll was at 20th level and odds of spell failure were high. Nevertheless, success was rolled. The party arrived in the Troll King's grotto with surprise and immediately attacked.
Overall a pretty successful night considering the armor was retrieved and the party escaped.
A good night for gaming all-around, it sounds like! :D
You should do an AAR for the blog on the GLCC sessions!
And my dead PC's fiancee rescued!
And LOTS and LOTS of loot recovered! :D
A fine evening of D&D! =)
We just finished playing. It went long. 4:30 until 12:30. But the party killed the troll King in GLCC, murdered his witches and guards, then looted and fled under cover of a wall of fire. Headed to bed.
And the dragon fell in the following round!---2 dragons killed by our party! =)
I lost initiative, killed by the dragon's bite!
It's landing to engage us!
Successfully read an ice storm for 18 damage from a scroll (I'm only 5th level).
Fighter summoned 2 5th level berserkers from the horn of valhalla, one of which hit with a spear for 6!
Apparently there are 2 dragons in the nest!---just killed one, it was a 36 hp dragon, but second one is now entering the fray!
