Lanta 5: Eyes of Bitana
Session XVIII Recap
For this session, the players only controlled NPCs (code named Dark Wind) and so do not actually know every little detail. But it’s not like I can pull out the “No meta-gaming” card. So whatever, here’s what happened.
- After four days of travel the Dark Wind reached the town Gonis and failed to negotiate peacefully with the city’s unpopular rulers (a bladeling, githyanki, shadow demon, and korred). A battle broke out and the party ended their rule. The citizens pleaded for them to kill the Forsaken Raiders they feared in a cave to the north, but the party simply did not have the time.
- Following two days of travel to the East, the party reached Port High Hopes, which had been taken over by a gray dragon, Prisinthaneen, looking for a home. It seems her previous one lied in the Demon’s Wing, which Sekien Dyoran had claimed as his domain. The party calmed the angry monster and convinced her to look elsewhere for a place to nest.
- For twelve days the party sailed, avoiding Forsaken Raiders, ships of actual Dragon Raiders poised to attack Aruclam and its allies, and threats that clung to the cliffs above Lazor Bay. Only a pack of manticores and a curious gray dragon (the mate of Prisinthaneen) bothered the Dark Wind. Other than the spotting of Leyline and these threats, most of the sailing was uneventful. *Once they docked at Bitter End Port, the curious dragon attacked his “food,” but lost to the dragon hungry warriors. *Only the gnome Vesnia lived in the deserted port, claiming the responsibility for the deaths of her fellow gnomes who once ran the docks. She conversed, confessed, and swore to help them save the friendly Dragon Raiders who were being held in Semeese.
- After another a week of travel, they reached the demon worshiping town of Semeese and searched its streets for the prison. Once locating it, they abducted one of the guards and threatened him to aid their plan for a break. With his help, they made their way to the cells and slaughtered the unmanageable demons that stood guard.
