...bles. In which our heroes return to the Del Dega estate to help break the siege, Åke isn't all there, Dorian is waylaid for babysitting duty, and Danger gets swole. Oh, and apparently Rinn redecorated the south wing.
Our party arrives via bug-back at a window of the Del Dega estate. Claire lets them in and informs them of some of the goings-on.
House Pyracinie has hired Black Bell mercenaries and has laid siege to the Del Dega estate. Everyone is waiting for us to arrive.
Rinn has previously arrived with Jeremiah at the Del Dega estate, through means that shall remain obscured for now. Ake awoke in a storeroom with no memory of the last two weeks, or or how he arrived here.
Just the TIP reunites in the war room. Rinn is surprised to see that Ren is now a paladin, and her hair has turned an ashen grey.
Some 200 Black Bell mercenaries are in the city, laying siege and securing other key positions in the city.
Our party hands over the magical geod to Vincent Del Dega. He says it will provide legitimacy and help to break the siege.
Claire rushes in and says the Black Bell are breaking through the gate. Anna summons the TIP to assist. Victoria stops Dorian on the way out and tells him he has a different job and tells him to follow her. She orders Dorian to sneak Darian out of the siege and get him to the temple of Sarek to wait it out.
The rest of The TIP rush to the banquet hall as the Black Bell mercenaries begin to break through the barricade. They move around the cobbled-together iron golem parts in the middle of the room and move to engage the invaders.
Ake moves forward first and attacks with eldritch blasts. And he moves through the rubble in the room, rather than over or around it. He is intermittently intangible…
Victoria slides in to bolster the group’s line.
Giacomo casts Hunger of Hadar on the doorway.
A half-ogre barbarian wearing Pyricinie tattoos charges through the darkness of the spell and lays into Giacomo with axe and sword, wounding him deeply.
Yada yada, lots of grisly battle.
THEN! Danger, the paladin arrives in the room, but he is seven feet tall, radiating blue light. The enemies retreat.
Danger has become The Justicar. (who brings with him The Law. The miracles he performs are edicts in the name of justice.)
Vincent Del Dega says to a dorian that he couldn’t accept such help from a commoner. Therefore he grants Dorian the title of Seigneur.
Just the TIP repair to Shoreline Manor. There they find, nested in the remains of the south wing, a huge silver dragon.
