A Daring Rescue

A Ship Stolen / Three Strokes of Luck / To Dare the Fates

Recap of Events from the last two session: Sorry this one is a bullet format.
-In a brazen effort the party boarders and seized an airship in the Underark. The fighting was cabin to cabin and fierce since the ship was crewed by Gnomish slaves and Drow Enforces.
-The party was aided by ‘Kelin’ Kelinidinistra one of Zaria’s younger brothers, an apprentice wizard who was in possession of a weapon of strange properties he told Zaria her mother the matron Mother of the Drow City was sacrificing Kelzen their older brother along with the other slaves and that she possessed an ancient artifact the slave traders wanted. He also told them how a rival House had kidnapped a foreign Eladrin and planned to use her knowledge to raid the homeland of Roqfurt’s people.
-In the final fight to take the bridge Jaak fell in battle his soul ripped from his body by a powerful necromantic relic-sword wielded by a Drow Fighter.
-A search of the ship revealed Kane a Fire Genasi Warlock that been enslaved as a pleasure slave for the Drow. Freed he sought to find his way out of the Underdark by aiding his liberators.
-Zaros teleported aboard the ship after her Sendings to Caldarous and Jaak failed and learning the situation leant aid to the party and a launched a distraction by attacking the Drow garrison.
-Zaria and Malachai snuck into House Aly’aer without setting off traps and made their way to the treasure room. Zaria became a Polar Bear and attacked her Mother and Four Handmaidens of Lloth, and a human and an Iron Golem who were in heated discussion over the Artifact a plane looking metal orb. The distraction of the bear caused chaos and fighting between the polar bear, the human and his golem, and the Drow. The Handmaidens became yellow waxen figures, Yochols the literal demonic Handmaidens of Lloth during the fighting Malachai grabbed the orb and the Polar Bear picked him up and they made their escape. Chased as they were the bear was faster as soon as they cut a corner Zaria took true form and Malachai used dimension door to escape.

-Aurora and Axiom infiltrated the Temple of Lloth and resisted the temptations to steal from the Goddess’ altars scattered in the undercroft. They dealt with inept guards with the clever use of the Silence spell and force of arms. Then they made their way above to the sacrificial altar. Six Acolytes, Drow females in training to become Clerics were channelling together to summon a fiend from the Negative Energy Plane. The creature devoured all magic directed against it but a clear head under pressure by the Cleric and the bravery of the Barbarian prevented the fiend from devouring its meal of slaves. The Acolytes attempted to channel the fiend into attempting to defeat the adventures but the Drow were prepared to slaughter helpless slaves not do combat with hardened adventurers the Barbarian freed the Drow Sacrifice who retrieve a sword from Axiom and the three butchered the channellers without mortals to tie it to the material plane the fiend was ripped back to the negative energy plane. Axiom and Aurora freed the slaves and lead them onto the airship.

-Kane and Roqfurt snuck into the back of the rival house to save the Eladrin in the house. The house was trapped though and although the men bypassed the traps on the door knobs the trapped stairs teleported Malachai into the lair of one of the four powerful daughters that ran the house. A powerful Tempest Cleric she dueled with Roqfurt as he pressed on to the next level but he forced her to flee with the power of his Lightning Arrow. Kane was bewitched by another daughter of the house while he was looking for Roqfurt. The Silver Witch entranced him into her parlor and attempted to kill him when Kane threw off her spell of Suggestion. Another Cleric she blasted him her most powerful necrotic spell but Kane survived and blasted her with his Hellish Rebuke turning her into a smoking corpse. He went to look for another way through but could not find one he went to the next elk meeting the Red Lady another fearsome daughter and fled outside the house. Roqfurt meanwhile found the Eldadrin suspended by Quintessence a powerful substance altering the flow of time on whatever it is used on. His sunblade became trapped in time’s grasp. After looking around he found blackened windows in the darkness and knocked them out to let in the glow from outside. The guards below were struck by glass shards and made to sound the alarm until Kane flying around the palace blasted them both with Eldritch Blast and went to assist Roqfurt. He successfully dispelled the magic of the Quintessence and collected the drops of it. The Eladrin slightly stunned but freed thanked her rescuers and followed them to freedom.

-The airship rescued all three parties but luck didn’t hold for the pilot the entire time all the maneuvering drew the ire of the other two Drow airships who attempted to cut them off but we’re not skilled enough. One Drow airship missed a turn and air brake maneuver and crashes into the citadel crystal unleashing its energies in an explosion that caused the airship the party used to crash early in the Underdark.

-A short time later the party gathered everyone from the crash and set out for the surface and into the wilderness. An encounter with Orcs in the dark lead to the accidental deaths of 14 slaves, 15 more fled when they saw the slave die and their bodies canabalized for meat. The Eladrin left in the night unable to stomach the behavior. The Party looted a bag of strange gems and a deck of cards. Kane Identified them the next day while being carried by the slaves.
-The party decided to play with Fate:
Zaria gained much power, respun the events of time and changed one event, and earned the ire of a God and a Demon Prince.
Kane gained some power but something troubling seemed to affect his outlook on life, he also became aware of an entity of the lower planes has become aware of him in a hostile fashion. A Fire Genasi Knight pledged himself into Kane’s service. He also gained the right to ask a questions truly and receive knowledge and wisdom to answer the question.
Roqfurt lost his worldly possessions, gained by right a Kingdom, was cursed, and was whisked away in a flash of ash to places unknown, he also gained in his abilities.
Malachai had his soul ripped from his body to a place of divine imprisonment then had his soul ripped from time and stuffed back in his body.
Axiom gained some power, was Challenged by an Avatar of Death and defeated it. And has become tied to Fate for a time. And gained a powerful enemy in the mortal realm.
Aurora gained 25 flawless gems, 3 wishes, one which she used to gain the best possible light armor.

A glitch in the power of the card deck caused the deck to refill again.
