It was just just one of those weeks. Traffic to the game was horrible so folks were late. We had one player out thanks to a holiday party and various technical difficulties made the session a little interesting. It’s always a good session when we can work in Dr. Who, Black Adder and South Park references.
I forgot the power supply for my laptop so I had to go old school analog and print out my character sheet. Thanks to some hiccup on fonts or something, some of the L’s and I’s didn’t print out. We had a good laugh at my Codron Great Axe and the spell Bu’s Strength (Great Bu’s up, Edmund!). Also thanks to autocorrect on my cell phone. My laptop is now know as Latoya.
The Summoner player decided to switch out characters. He just wasn’t happy with it, so he switched to a Bard (Detective)/Master Spy. He wasn’t sure on a name or even a gender so off to a random name generator. And the name that popped up. Amelia. Immediately the group dubbed his character Amelia Pond.
Since we were down a player and feeling really lazy, we just did a little more kingdom building and some more exploring. Overall, it was a pretty easy session. We did have one “Oh Shit” encounter. We stumbled onto a black dragon. Normally, this probably would have ended up being a knock down drag out fight. But we have a bard now! A high Charisma and a ton of skill points = Bluffing and talking our way past the dragon. Yes, the bard convinced that dragon that we were agents of bigger meaner dragon and it had better leave us alone. We did scrap the plan of trying to fool the dragon with sock puppet but it was a good joke.
We completed a couple of the side quests from our laundry list. But that’s just comes with Kingmaker adventure path. Like I said before, at times it kind of feels like playing World of Warcraft. So any way, at the end of the session the characters leveled up to 13th and next time we should start the final book of the adventure path. But thanks to the holidays, our next session won’t be until after the holidays.
