Re: Notes from 05/28/2020 - Frostbite bites it

So, for some meta clarity, here's what happened without giving too much away.

You faced an adult white dragon and a horned devil. At the adult age, dragon's gain legendary actions (3 per round), as do many of the more distinct powerful creatures in the game. For example, a fully grown mother brain Illithid.

The Horned devil had a possession ability granted to some greater devils and demons that is similar to the ghostly possession the party dealt with ages ago.

It was a well-fought fight, particularly taking out the dragon before he killed Lofar. While death was certainly a possibility, the mostly likely loss in the battle was meant to be the Thane as the dragon attempted to fend off the demon inside him. ​

​Also, I'm thinking this would be a good time for the party to take a week or two of downtime while they await the arrival of Sedon's daughter. If if we have everyone's agreement, we'll do a ten day downtime. You can take a look at some downtime options in the PHB as well as any other tasks that might interest you.

Beyond standard options of preparations, making things, divinations, and learning skills, you could assist the dwarves in rebuilding and make use of the clerics and dwarven crafters as you see fit. There would also be a feast.

The white had landed next to the Thane and provided a large target for me. I obliged, covering him with acid a second time. I then switched forms and took out my bow. Sedon used eldritch blasts. Eclipse called lightning repeatedly. Amaroth spewed abuse at the white, mocking his ancestry and his lineage going back five generations. Or something like that.

Only Fuma got up close and personal. He closed with the creature, looking tiny beside it. While he delivered good damage, every time the party hit Frostbite with anything, it flailed and damaged Fuma in turn. Eventually Fuma needed Amaroth, shadow stepping to him in order to get healed.

The Thane wasn’t much help. In fact, the Thane screamed at the party for us not to kill Frostbite yet. I was still mulling that when our friend, the demon, emerged from the Thane apparently intent on taking over Frostbite instead. They grappled, and Eclipse and I were both happy to deliver lightning damage. The demon never got another chance to control. Frostbite dropped to the ground before he could try again. The Thane even started to remove Frostbite’s head.

The demon, of course, was less than thrilled with our success. He turned on Fuma and controlled him. The coward never wants to fight fair. Amaroth just as quickly expelled him again, surprising the demon greatly. Eclipse’s next lightning bolt tenderized him and Sedon’s blasts sent him back to Hell.

Eclipse then restored most of Fuma’s health.

The Thane wanted us to carry the body back to the throne room. We suggested it would be better if the dwarves came out and did the honors. The Thane agreed, took the head, and left for the palace, with Fuma attending.

Amaroth sidled up to Eclipse to ask about the item the tiefling had gifted her. Apparently, it was a cloth with an embroidered black stallion. Amaroth recognized that symbol as belonging to a raucous, high-end tavern in Waterdeep. I guess that’ll be a target when next we go there.

While the rest of us were watching the carcass, more white dragon forms appeared above the clouds. I was going up for a look when Sedon dismissed his fly spell. I would have been fine. I landed without problem, but went to the cave to sulk. The party thinks there were three whites and at least one of them spoke to me from above our position on the mountain. A deep voice said, “Copper one, you who consort with humans.” That’s funny because only Fuma is human and he wasn’t here. I think the whites are no better at telling these creatures apart than I was. Anyway, they wanted to negotiate for Frostbite’s remains but got a little abusive when I said the body wasn’t mine to give. Sheesh.

By the time Fuma returned with the dwarven team, they were gone.
