This session was a doozy! The heroes took off from the Dwarven Kingdom in their airship Death Knell. They flew for 10 days over the icy tundra of north Illia. On the way the party got familiar with the dwarves they were working with. Krayus got to be pretty good friends with a few. Sorn stayed watch for most of the trip, his body heat making it easier to endure the frigid temperatures. Tallon and Lumi worked to keep the generator recharged, which was exhausting work by itself.
Hilarity ensued when Lumi was asleep one night… Orsik dressed up as a boat of death (reference to a comment Lumi made about death being a boat) and woke up Lumi, trying to get him to think he was dead. It might have worked, but Orsik has a very unmistakable dwarven voice. Tallon helped a little, as did Runt. Runt used his magic hat to turn into a ghost and try and get Lumi to hop on the “boat”. Lumi refused to fall for it, so Orsik tackled him, and Runt tied Lumi up. Together they tossed Lumi overboard (he was tied to the railing, thankfully) and left him there until morning, at which point Lumi was suffering from hypothermia and frostbite. Lumi was seething and is currently plotting his revenge.
After the small airship shenanigans the party arrived at Mithrendain, only it was surrounded by a thick coat of storm clouds. Never afraid the group flew straight into the clouds, where they were met with lightning, hail and powerful winds. There were also shadows appearing and disappearing in the clouds that could be seen when the lightning struck.
The party navigated the storm carefully, and without much incident, though the hail and wind did some damage to the ship, nothing was too bad. The real challenge came when the ship burst free from the clouds and spotted the City of Glass. Two dragons took wing from their sentry spire perch and made haste to the ship, while a dragon roared behind them. A gargantuan blue dragon emerged from the clouds and turned back to face the way he came, ignoring the heroes. Soon after a similarly sized white dragon followed, and became the target of the Blue’s lightning breath. The White blocked the attack and rushed forward, but missed as the Blue shot skyward, launching balls of lightning from its mouth. Another roar and the two dragons were gone, back into the clouds.
Rurik then took the helm and the heroes got set to leap from the ship, using the new Windows of Escape to make their fall painless. Each of them leaped from the ship, rolling and spinning to land where they needed to go: The Star Spire, where the ley line was located. 15 dwarves followed soon after, leaping and plummeting into the spiraled streets of Mithrendain. Rurik kept 5 soldiers with him for when they return to the battle after hiding the ship.
We’ll see how well the heroes deal with regrouping in an alien city while under attack by 2 white dragons, along with whatever forces are in the city.
