In our first ever gathering (the “shake-down cruise”, as it were), we pulled a minor fast-forward (a la Record of Lodoss War) to a time when the party already knew each other and were travelling down a path near the woods. They heard a cry, and looked up to see a number of orcs kicking a poor, helpless puppy by a broken-down hut at a crossroads. Having none of that, the party engaged the orcs in combat, slaying them mightily.
When the fight ended, Nulath [Casey] claimed the puppy and named him (“Frodo”) as Akara [Valarie] healed him. Meanwhile, [Mike] and Praxis [Lisa] did some Arcana-related reconnoitering. They realized that this was a fey puppy, called a “Cooshee”, and that they were near an area where the wall between the Material world and the Feywild might be weak (a so-called “fey crossing”). The session ended with Karath [Mike] saying “There’s no way its owner could be anywhere nearby…” and Praxis daring him to say that again as the camera focused on Karath’s quizzical face, the screen going dark as he opened his mouth to speak.
Next Session: Tuesday, November 1: “There goes the bride…”
