D&Ded Part 4
Sorry i've been gone for two weeks. I've just been doing stuff and I pretty much completely forgot to update. Sorry about that. I'm planning on making another update tomorrow, fingers crossed, which will include whatever + "something" stuff I generally put into these D&D updates. It's just going to be more other stuff to talk about, so they deserve their own article. So expect that after I sleep. For now, i'll brief you on D&D. All Eberron this time. :3

So, last Sunday...we didn't do much. We got to the port city and we spent the session gearing up for our trip to the marshes to search for dragon shards. We all picked up some important gear here and there and got our gold from the last few missions and everything.

Then, we met our prospector, who is this grizzly, weathered old half-orc woman. She looks old, but also like she's been through a lot, which made her look even older, so she may not be as old as we think. 50s-60s, most likely. Especially since half-orcs have slightly lesser life spans than humans.

From her and some other people around, we learned more about the marshes and the creatures we were going to be dealing with.

It appears that there is a perimeter of living tree monsters, they're aberrations, surrounding a certain area of the marsh. It is clear that they are forming a perimeter because of how they're placed and the prospectors who have tried to get past them have all been killed. From the areas just outside of the perimeter, which contained a number of smaller dragon shards, the prospectors surmised that much bigger ones were inside the perimeter.

Also, one group that got near to the trees saw some sort of humanoid figures off in the distance inside the perimeter, along with some kind of spiky animal.

And that's all we got last session. It ended with us getting on our boat for the six hour trip to the marshes.

This session, we landed on one of the more solid parts of the marshes and we saw a tree ahead, along with a rather large dragon shard geode sitting in front of it. Three members of the party handily won their will save and saw through the illusion. Our wacky Shifter Bard/Cleric of the Traveler yelled out at the tree that it's tricks weren't going to work on us. Then the geode faded away, as it appeared the tree understood Common.

We all jumped over to dry land, across the muck part, and advanced on the tree. Our human fighter/cleric of the Silver Flame, Shifter  bard/cleric of the Traveler, and Warforged Psion/Fighter advanced on the tree and attacked. We had cast all of our buffs earlier, so we had like +5's to +10's to attack and also +6's to damage. So we were good to go. I cast Doom on it and threw my fiery Meteoric Knife at it. That, combined with everyone else pummeling it, it died pretty quickly. It tried to escape by going into the ground, but that prompted opportunity attacks from the frontline fighters. And our Silver Flame cleric critted. Let's just say the tree died hard.

Our DM was expecting the tree to get away and recover for later, not for us to kill it. So now we don't have to worry about fighting it again, lucky that. Afterwards, we advanced inward a bit and the prospectors got to work collecting dragon shards with their Dragon Marks of Finding.

Then, when it started getting dark, we noticed a humanoid figure off in the distance. We couldn't make him out very well, but he blew a horn and retreated. We also retreated back to the boats, with the party camping out where the tree used to be.

Just as the sun was about to go behind the horizon, we were approached. It turns out that the humanoid figures were Githyanki and the spiky animals were Howlers. So that should be fun. There's two Githyanki and one Howler, so it shouldn't be too bad. Just don't get too close. At least I can use Hold Person and Command on them (I couldn't use them on the tree because it was neither a person nor had a understandable mind for me to control).

And that's where we ended for the session.

Next session should be fun.

So, i'll be making an update after I sleep about my going ons and what i'm up to. See you then.
