Last night's session:
le bouche hireling
Zigfried trained baboon
Several days aboard the junk Haiyan. The wind freshened. Mermen swam alongside serenading the ship the first night. A sea hydra was spotted a long way off and avoided. Toral managed to Heal Pita (lesser miracles had failed previously). When he did she vomited a huge spider. The party dispatched it with little trouble.
They finally determined that the wolf pelt allows a person to turn into a wolf. Then things started turning sour.
G and Z took turns turning into a wolf and tormenting the prisoner Isabelle. This almost caused a confrontation with Roger. Z also took the dead spider and threw it into her cabin. G snuck in and bled her then healed her with his obsidian blade.
Finally, at all the terrified screams of the prisoner and the howling of a wolf, the laodah refused to pilot the ship, the crew refused to sail it. The ship was adrift.
The party hatched the fabulous plan of drawing the laodah away from Roger. He wouldn't go. Toral commanded him to go. Once away, G attacked Roger to subdue. Mollie Held him. He was taken below and tied up. The party had just come into view of Mont St Brise, City of Terraces, City of Pilgrims, City of Bells. The harbormaster's ship is coming out to meet them.
What a train wreck. I have no idea why the few players instigating this waited until just before reaching the destination city before physically assaulting all NPCs involved. If they'd wanted to take this course of action, why not before, when Roger was sick with the plague? I can only think they were panicking, thinking they had to save Isabelle before they got to the city. But they could have talked with Roger and found out more about what would happen with her. It wasn't like she was going to be burnt on the beach, immediately. I think they are used to getting their way and feel entitled. There was a childishness to it.
Anyway, Toral's player was trying to hold back the fighters in their chaos and finally gave up and went along with them. I think he will be disappointed when his golden halo disappears and he loses all petition ability. He's going to have to atone for this somehow.
I did think the point when Mollie Held Roger was pretty badass. She's a petitioner like Toral, but more of a pagan. I asked her what it looked like when she did it, she said "Black rainbows."
But the party is going to be in for some trouble now, they're about to be inspected and have a dude tied up below decks that is in a holy order of which this city is the seat!
