Wednesday Group 10/18/16
In game date: 1/20
Gullycloak goes to meet Ichabod and requests items to get around the blacklist on Silotown.
Meera goes to O.G. to ensure he has plans if the Silotown Saviors get killed.
Sanara has rejoined the group after a brief absence, upset at the group for not helping her people, but understanding that a bigger problem takes priority.
On Gullycloak’s suggestion, the group decides to drillcar underneath the enemies’ meeting and blow the hell out of them. They stuff the car full of poison, alchemical explosives, highly concentrated whiskey, and other shrapnel, and set off the bomb from a safe distance.
The bomb goes off, taking out most of the armies except for two Elder Deep Ones, Zorbon, a few demons, the Blue Priestess, and Qohan himself. Gullycloak manages to briefly distract the Priestess by compelling her to rebuild the walls of Silotown, taking her out of the battle momentarily as she disappears.
As they come upon the area in the Cyclowhip, they are stopped hard by the punch of a Hezrou, a hulking reptilian demon. The Cyclowhip is heavily damaged, if not irreparably destroyed. Kreg releases the catapult, launching Iona like a bolt of lightning from Hieroneus’ own hand. She destroys Zorbon with one mighty swing of her longsword, cleaving him in twain as she humbly proclaims the might of her god.
Seeing this, Zorbon’s minions and summoned likeness surround her to avenge their fallen master. The Elder Deep Ones aren’t far behind. Sanara leaps to her aid, taking a few shots at the Vrocks surrounding Iona, piercing their screeching necks.
Kreg leaps on the Hezrou’s face and injects him with bombs as Grimsbone pummels the demon to death.
Orin, after a failed attempt to petrify the enemies and pelting Qohan with magic ice strikes, uses his magic to stop the demons, Qohan, and one of the Elder Deep Ones from taking any hostile actions against the party. Neutered, the Vrocks and the Elder Deep One retreat.
At this moment, the Blue Priestess returns and proclaims that her task has been completed and that the Saviors will no longer get in the way of the Blue King’s return. If she only knew the Savior’s plan. Gullycloak and Grimsbone step over the Hezrou’s burning corpse and approach her.
Seeing his options running out, Qohan’s smug facade breaks. Even having seen his eventual death in the Eldritch Machine of time, he shrieks, “Fuck the future,” and attempts to escape by burrowing through the ground. Kreg and Orin use their own resources to catch up to the cowardly Qohan. Kreg injects him with the same hallucinogen that Dale experienced in the jungle. Qohan’s pupils go wide and his mind is plunged into chaos.
Up above, Iona and Sanara are still toe-to-to with an Elder Deep One, while Gullycloak and Grimsbone confront the Blue Priestess.
While the enemies’ forces have been greatly reduced, a cornered beast is even more dangerous. The Silotown Saviors will have to be very careful when dealing with their most dangerous foe yet.
