The final instalment of our Rise of the Runelords campaign, with the PCs victorious over Karzoug. They completed it with no deaths in the final battle. After five years, it's a good feeling to get a campaign finished.

So we didn't finish Rise of the Runelords on Monday, but we're getting close and ended in the middle of the final battle. Most of Karzoug's allies are down, but the party's main fighter has been mazed and won't be coming back for a while unless someone can do something about it.

As our Rise of the Runelords campaign nears its end, the group frees an angel from a binding oath, and massacres the strange creatures of Leng who are operating some weird technological device.

The PCs flee from the Pinnacle of Avarice, not realising that they've pretty much shattered most of its defences. After a chat with a sword, they return to accept the surrender of the last few priestesses and gain some useful information.

The party continue fighting their way into the Pinnacle of Avarice, and again they meet a projection of the Runelord himself. They are driven back, but get a chance to level up for the final time before the end of the adventure.

Reaching the Pinnacle of Avarice, the PCs get a glimpse of their nemesis Karzoug, but not before a long and challenging fight with the giants guarding the entrance.

Episode 20 of The Spires of Xin-Shalast. A trap is sprung, and survived, but turns out to be a bit more deadly than expected when a group of spectre slayers show up, though probably not as deadly as it should have been since after subsequently reading the rules on summoned creatures, I don't think the party had as many restorations available as they thought they did. Keeping track of all the rules in Pathfinder can be tricky.

In the ongoing saga of Rise of the Runelords, the party of heroes are particularly heroic in their defeat of the blue dragon Ghlorofaex, spending several hero points and burning through a lot of spells and hitpoints.

Not only did I get to use a map that barely fit on the table, but I also got to use both my Blue Dragon models.

In the latest session of Rise of the Runelords, the party manage to avoid an ambush through luck, decide not to rescue a Succubus, murder some ropers that just want to talk, and finally do talk to a Lamia that provides some useful information.

Having defeated the ice devil, the party decides to head up to the fortress of Shahlaria to take on the Rune Giants up there. This could turn out to be quite a dangerous fight, since a couple of rune giants plus a dozen or so cloud and storm giants could be more than the group can handle.

Our Rise of the Runelords campaign continues. A well planned and well executed plan of attack actually works, and luck is also with the party when it matters. It's all going smoothly until a unexpected visitor crashes the party.

Bringing the roof down on themselves, a cure for vampirism and a strong desire to find loot are all on the agenda for the party during this session's exploration of Xin-Shalast.

The adventurers find the lost city of Xin-Shalast, and mostly bluff their way past the guards. Within the city they find they are expected by more than just Karzoug, and get to fight something with two many tentacles.

Continuing Rise of the Runelords and the search for Xin-Shalast. As always, the party travels in comfort, using flight during the day and extra dimensional mansions at night for a luxurious sleep. Long epic journeys in fantasy RPGs never quite seem to be the hardships portrayed in books.

Another session of our Rise of the Runelords game, and the final one spent exploring Guiltspur, including an attempt to befriend a silver dragon which isn't quite what he used to be, and also sees the return of an old character.

Since the campaign is now on a time limit, I'm going to need to keep track of day by day events, and to help I've updated my calendar utility to output Inner Sea months in HTML format: https://github.com/samuelpenn/rpg/blob/master/roll20/utils/inner_sea_calendar.py (and in the process discovered that Unicode has font symbols for Moon phases).
