be me, human (secretly changeling) grave cleric
be not me, DM, human phantom rogue, human (way) monk, half-orc berserker barbarian, and Ireena
get our butts handed to us by the Boneshaker hags.
we each lose something: lock of hair from Ireena, courage from rogue and monk, heart from barb (don’t worry, he got better) and victory from me.
keep that last one in mind.
fast forward a few sessions
be in Vallaki, selling “pastries” to local businesses
should be meeting with Ms. Watcher, but you know
particularly, our barb gets a 10 ft ladder from the general store as a joke when we came by them
exit the area
roll a probability dice on a d100 to see what happens during travel
”Next time we roll probability dice, I’m rolling it!” I say
get ambushed by four guard squads of 6 and Izek
demanded to lay down our weapons and surrender
we start doing that…
…but quickly place down the ladder and scamper up to the rooftops
most of my allies make it up safely (opportunity attacks on scale mail, hell yeah), but the rogue is forced to deal with an entire squad.
rogue gets downed, but is stable as the guard group carries her off
try to pull up the ladder, but not before an entire squad got on the roof
group attempts to shove the guards off the roof
barb succeeds, monk almost succeeds, and Ireena and I fail
guard squads start converging on our location and Izek is hurling balls of fire at us
things start getting hairy, so monk books it out of there
things start getting hairy, so barb jUMPS ON IZEK FROM THE ROOF
he actually did pretty well for a while, getting Izek very low, but his frenzy couldn’t keep him conscious forever and he’s captured
meanwhile, Ireena and I decide to book it to the monk
it didn’t go well
Ireena is captured and, surrounded, I briefly consider surrender
but as I remember what deals are left unfinished, the devotion I have to my god, and Certain Backstory ReasonsTM, I disengage after the monk, the guards leaving to capture Ireena
I heal us both up and we head out to the Watcherhaus
we keep traveling across the rooftops, but a probability dice is rolled to see if the guards spot us
we’re spotted by the guards, one squad on the roof, the other on the ground
we fight them off, but when the monk is downed, I run to the edge of the roof
I was the one who pulled up the ladder, so I kept it
I head down, trying to shove the ladder down, but failing due to
I make a mad dash for it, but am knocked unconscious and carried off with the monk
After the session…
”I can’t believe our dice rolls were so bad!”
”Hey, didn’t (cleric) lose his victory back at the hags
”Ohhh, this must mean this is how it manifests! Now we will suffer no more defeats, right?
