Session 30, Day 51

Day 51

  • The party defeated the armored displacer beasts.
  • The party destroyed small balloons above the Attigen camp which dropped the illusion of a victory over the gnome village of Burrabar.
  • Beyfor, Earl Bromkar’s son, and his officers were in their command tent, trapped inside magical helmets that locked them in a shared illusion.
  • Sgt. Brogurd and his men tried to take helmets off some of the officers, but the officers died as a result.
  • This left Shamash, a professional soldier, in command.
  • Two gnome brothers from Burrabar were also in the command tent, named Punkle and Neslin.
  • Neslin was guarding his brother, and told them what he could.
  • Burrabar got desperate with the sieging army outside their doorstep and asked a veteran of the Coven War, a gnome illusionist named Sylar, for help.
    • Sylar was born in Burrabar, but trained in the arcane city of Daeminiera.
    • Sylar underwent transmutation experiments and merged his body with that of a displacer beast.
  • Sylar has trapped the village elders in illusion helmets as well, and forced the village to fight back against the Attigen army at their doorstep.
  • Punkle despises Attigen since he was the fiancee to the scout (Kiri’s sister) the party killed traveling to the mines. He volunteered to create the shared illusion that the Attigen officers are trapped in, only he can free them.
  • The party can go into the shared illusion too, and try to convince or trick Punkle into freeing the officers.
  • After the illusion over the Attigen army fell, Burrabar prepares to attack. The gnomes of Burrabar could possibly defeat the Attigen army, in their half-starved state, at a great cost to both sides.
  • Steen convinced the gnomes at the wall to let the party in, and they would negotiate with Sylar a less destructive resolution.
  • Party took a short rest before entering.
