Session 65 - Priestknobs and Broomsticks

So firstly and most importantly - Happy birthday Ollie! I was meant to send this yesterday and so it would have been timely, but alas it has been sitting in Drafts.

Secondly, our usual Mad Hatter venue has been wrested from the grip of the D&D Meetup group next week (13th October).
Apparently the guy who books the space does it in blocks, and a random group booked it out before he booked the next batch. Oh well!

Charles suggests this as the venue -
So we'll go with that unless somebody has any strenuous objections or strong opinions on the place.

Put more succinctly:

On Tuesday 13th October we will be playing at the Trading House pub.

For Fraser - Hopefully you get this one! I misspelt Govan as Goran, so some guy called Fraser Goran is probably confused as to why he's been receiving these messages!
I was about to write "let me know if you're still not receiving these" then realised how silly that would be.

Session 65 - Priestknobs and Broomsticks

Campaign Date:
Wednesday, 18 October, 1549
Moon Phase: Waxing Crescent
Zodiac: Virgo

New Characters:
- Skirr, a Specialist equipped with a fancy robe and little else to his name.

Enemies Defeated:
- 32 huge mangled Frankenstein bat creatures, slain or mind-controlled or roasted or forced to flee (800 exp)
- 15 witches on broomsticks, some slain and others forced to flee (750 exp)
Total: 1550 exp

- First party to enter Galth (500 exp)
- First party to enter Galth Cathedral (100 exp)
- First party to enter the Fleshworks (100 exp)
Total: 940 exp

- Unwilling to go sell their loot in Fortress City Fate due to having just murdered a bunch of cops, the party offloads their loot to Lulu and co who have just shown up. (50 exp)
- While Lulu's group heads off to the city, the rest decide to head to head off into the countryside before word spreads of their alleged misdeeds. (50 exp)
- The walled town of Galth seems to be a staging post for the army and a refugee camp for those escaping the undead. In the hopes of curing John Doe, they head to the cathedral. (50 exp)
- Lulu's group reach Fate, Jojo immediately runs off to find the zoo while the others deposit cash into the bank and dump the other assets into a safe deposit box. (50 exp)
- Jojo finds an elephant, attempts to mind control it. The elephant becomes enraged and starts trying to batter down the gate, so Jojo goes and repeats her mind-control trick on a bear with similar results. She flees as the elephant rampages. (50 exp)
- In Galth, the main party has entered the cathedral and find much of the place is being used as a refugee shelter. John Doe's abhorrent form means he's passed all the way up the chain to talk to the Bishop himself, who says the best surgeons are in Fate. (50 exp)
- Mana, true to form, tries to pickpocket the Bishop and steal his chain of office. She succeeds, feeling his genitals in the process, although her attempt to knock him out and steal his clothes in plain sight of the entire cathedral is less successful (50 exp)
- Stabbington quietens the angry crowd with a noble speech, Mana is forced to return the stolen property and leave. Lulu's group turns up at this point and the rejoined party leaves at speed. (50 exp)
- A rumour heard at Galth states that there is someone, or something, creating giant fleshy horrors in the Lumps, the hills to the south. The party sets off, and John Doe nurses the faint hope that a fleshcrafter might fix him. (50 exp)
- A roaming band of soldiers is encountered, including a couple of muscle-pound preachers with bandoliers of holy water. They give a few vials of holy water when they find out the plan to raid the Lumps.
- A group of barbarians from Lulu's tribe are found on the road to the Lumps, armed with what they call anti-witch poison. They join the party. (50 exp)
- A swarm of bats and broomstick-riding witches swarming over one particular hill catch the group's attention, they flap over and attack. (50 exp)
- The bats are discovered to be frankensteinian conglomerates of many parts with men's faces and hairy dog bodies etc, during the battle Jojo mind-controls one of them and uses it as a mount. (50 exp)
- Also during the battle, John Doe attempts to grapple a bat-thing and ends up being hoisted into the air and mobbed. He manages to spin around and kill a bunch of them before being carried off to their roost. (50 exp)
- The witches arrive too late to help, one casting a strange spell on Jojo (which she resists) before they fly off. One is shot down from behind and her broomstick is taken, but unfortunately doesn't seem to fly under its own power. (50 exp)
- The fleeing bats and witches seem to have flown into a wide, ominous cave mouth. The party follow, and Lulu finally gets to use her flamethrower to barbecue a heap of bat-things on the inside. The survivors fly off. (50 exp)
- Further in, a stairway upwards has the heads of two slobbery pitbulls looking down. The dogs are fired upon but missed, and hurriedly withdraw. (50 exp)
- A liquidy vomity sound is heard from up the stairs and a wave of burning sludge comes washing down, burning everyone it hits. ON THAT CLIFFHANGER we end the session. (50 exp)
