Session 41: Enter The Goat Men!

We Skipped 3 Sessions to do Playtesting

After 3 playtest sessions, we return to the regular campaign.

Less Aranel, the party heads north to the old fort. Caeside, Madox, Silver Feather, Wren, Skybreacher, and 2 other kenku form the party.

Due to a malases, Madox and one of the kenku gets disadvantage on Wis and Cha checks.
The old fort is a ruin. A path leads down the cliff face (leads to an open . When looking down, we feel anxiety as we approach.

Caeside provides:
Good berries PCs x20
NPCs x10
The party goes to the fortress gates we hear wolf-like howls from the ruins.
Wisdom Saves:
Silver Feather – 4 (failed)
Skybreacher – 16

Because of the Fright, Silver Feather insists on leaving the ruined fort.
Instead, they go down the path to a cave (above the ocean).
The party enters into the cave. There are artificial columns in the cave and stairs.

Silver Feather acrobats up the ledge. A set of double doors of wrought iron with imagery of the goat and young girls. Nothing else in the room.

Silver Feather tries to lift the bar using his magic sword but can’t. Caeside transforms into a chameleon and goes under the door to lift the bar. Caeside hears voices and sees light on the other side.
Caeside lifts the bar and is not noticed. The voices continue. Caeside opens the door. They begin chanting.

This is Caeside with the party http://files.elderscrollsonline.com/cms/2017/02/5c0aa27b836b1c526d3e9a78bae10015.jpg

7 distinct voices. Not a known language.

Hall has 4 alcoves that used to have statues. Some have feet that might have been kenku.

Silver Feather and kenku nok bows.
Maddox does hiding in shadows.
Caeside and Wren…

Into a diamond-shaped room with a dais in the middle and pillars and doors at the points of the diamond on the walls. In the center we see seven figures in robes facing each other. Light is coming from fungus on the doors and pillars.

Silver Feather uses his Web Wand (takes concentration). Silver Feather will concentrate and use magic longsword.

Caeside wildshapes to a spider and crawls around the ceiling.
That IS Caeside!

The ceiling is a mosaic made of stones. Spider-Caeside sees two rooms cut off by bars with one figure in each room (far wall to the sides). They are staring at the room. They are in robes that are more ornate than the 7 in the room.

Caeside communicates through Wren what he saw.

Caeside (right one – waiting above him) and Madox (left one – directly under him) to go after the 2 “barred” guys.

No action for Wren.
Madox tosses a Fireball necklace on one of the caged ones because it appeared he was about to cast a spell. Against a DC 15 against 8d6 (37 and he took half). He retreats down a stairwell.
Caeside tries to hit his guy with a spider’s web (NAT 20). To restrain him against the bars and he cannot breakfree against it in the first round.

Madox goes to the straight back of the room door and opens it hoping to chase his guy. He flings it open. Half-circle room with pillars and another dais with an enormous black cracked crystal. With doors on the far end are open and it is magically black.
Madox breaks to the left and that door (wooden and locked). Madox kicks it in (with a 27 to hit and does 12 to it). It goes flying inward. Madox feels like the guy closed a door and locked it.
Skybreacher catches up.
The door blows out and a goat headed creature pops out and hits Madox for 13 HP.
