Sunday, August 11th, 1st year of the reign of King Vladik the Gamesman
Feeling some sense of urgency to rescue the mongrelmen leaders [or at least take down the Temple of Set], the Revengers immediately headed back out to Barrowmaze the day after their previous expedition returned.  On the way through the moors, Sir Pelinor noticed six harpies flying towards the group of adventurers.  The group turned to Hrglclxin’s expertise in avoiding hostiles in the wild, but the harpies were determined and the adventurers failed to lose them.  As the harpies swooped in to attack, they sang their siren song and Hrglclxin and Daphne fell to the charm effect.  Two of the harpies started leading the enchanted adventurers away while the remaining four harpies attacked the rest.  Sir Pelinore attempted to restrain Daphne from leaving, which triggered Scorpie to attack Sir Pelinore.  In the tussle, Scorpie accidentally clawed Daphne [rolled a 1 to hit], but successfully stung Sir Pelinor.  The poison from the stinger was too strong for the young paladin and he succumbed to it.

Meanwhile, Proximo was dropped by two of the attacking harpies ganging up on him [he had the only other ranged attack].  Boris revenged Proximo by cutting down three of the four attacking harpies and heavily injuring the fourth.  The fourth harpy knew when discretion was the better part of valor and flew off, bleeding heavily.

Godric paused to administer a healing potion to Proximo while Boris and Dhekeon gave pursuit after the two harpies leading away Daphne and Hrglclxin.  Boris caught up with the adventurers being led away and took Hrglclxin’s longbow off him and used it to attack the singing harpies.  This forced the harpies to attack him, bringing them within range of Dhekeon and Boris’ axe.  After a short fight the harpies were dead and the entranced adventurers came out of it.  The group walked back to where the rest of the group was waiting and healing.

Godric cast Delay Poison on Sir Pelinore and then used his Healing proficiency to cure the poisoning.  He finished doing this shortly after the rest returned to the group.  Sir Pelinore’s lower back and hips were injured [apparently that’s where Scorpie stung him] and Proximo lost an eye to the harpy attack and needed a week’s worth of bedrest back in Helix.

Wanting a bit of revenge [and to loot their lair], the Revengers decided to track the lone bleeding harpy through the moor to its lair.  Unfortunately, tracking a flying target is difficult and they lost the trail after a while.  With several members needing bedrest and not wanting to face any further monsters, the adventurers decided to return to Helix for rest and recovery.  Luckily, the Grand Party would keep the non-injured adventurers occupied during the next couple of weeks.

End of Session

[There was scant loot and little monster XP this session, but it was just enough for Proximo to level.]

[The session started late as it was the Monday after Thanksgiving and so we all chatted a bit about what we’d done during the holiday.  It was an enjoyable get together, even if it made for a short write-up, but sometimes that’s how it goes.  Next session they made it to the Barrowmaze and explored further – see Session 31 for details, when it posts.]
