Ravensgate

Session 48: VELA!

Caeside casts Animal Friendship and Speak with Animals to get a bird to scout Thundertree. The bird saw a dragon, druid, cultists, but did not see zombie plants.

Our mission is to find out what’s at Thundertree and if we can cause a fight between our force and the dragon.

Caeside goes ahead of the army to Thundertree in animal form (direwolf) to deliver the Sword of Emo Arcade Fire (1d6 damage) to the dragon and warn them that the Lord Mayor is taking this land (and we’re trying to forewarn him).

The fire is dying down so I grab a couple other pieces of wood. Maybe eat a little hard tack I found in the saddle bags.
The stars have a different look to them tonight. I guess that’s what happens when you kill a dragon, everything smells and tastes better.
John • 24 mins

She did not reveal much and had to be killed.
