+Josie X (can't seem to tag you for some reason) started this. It's pretty great.

Make a party of pregens from random mobile pics:

Wookiee Shredder, Bohdee Satvah, who robs banks/casinos to pay for his never-ending summer.

Rampaging prefectural mascot, Palulu-kin, whose only weakness is blue plastic barriers.

Reborn monkey god, Tim, currently distracted from higher purpose by awesome technology of the future.

We are Three Robots As One. Our hive mind makes us greater than all others, though we like the Rampaging Mascot very much.

Kawaii Totem Wall is kawaii. We destroy things with our gaze attacks... and noxious butt bombs.

Sincere apologies... No game this week or next.

Since next week is my trip to Vietnam, and there is a shit ton of preparation yet to do, there will be no game until July 7th.

Have a good Canada Day... (cuz I know you will celebrate in my honour with a U"). And have a good Independence Day if you are also into that.

All things considered, perhaps I will finally get around to picking up "Fantasy Fucking Vietnam: Qelong" after I get back... if I am so inspired by my visit.

CWZ Session 8: Haunted Btuob

+ryan richmond as Canttel Schadenfraude, orc barbarian
+Kasper Blomdell as Ayreh Feek, tiefling binder
+Chris P. as Darius Krin, human artificer
+Chris H as Gale, half-elf paladin
+A. Miles Davis as Lucasta Beaulieu, Comtesse du Scivolo, Half-Elf Courtier Alice

Encounters overcome:
Saved Aq
"Captain" Gale took the Helm

Random encounters (1 and 6 on a d6):
Heat waves and humidity blasts.
Several goblin husks were found.
An orc on fire running and flailing at Ayreh.
A mindflayer blasted Cantell.
A vitriolic sphere exploded.
An earth genasi rigger fell into the cargo hold.
Horrid sights and sounds mitigated by presence of an Alice.

Hexploration:
Btuob, all decks

PC Mutations
Passing the portal left everyone altered in some way. (I straight up fucked up the numbers in some cases, but mutations were all taken from The Metamorphica. I don’t think anyone really got screwed over here. Some changes were made for dopey bad DMing/poor reading skills.)

Darius gains the body function mutation: Heightened Sense of Smell and Taste. You can identify odours up to a hundred feet (30m) upwind and a hundred yards (91m) downwind, follow trails, identify individuals by smell, and sense contamination and poison in food when tasted. The mutant is also more sensitive to pheromones and toxic gasses, but not to what would be considered “bad” smells.
Ayreh gains the body function mutation: Malleable Body. You can bend, twist, and collapse your body, squeezing through small spaces and being comfortable in awkward positions. Any hard parts of the mutant’s anatomy, like skeleton or shell, are extremely flexible, but not fragile.
Gale gains the body function mutation: Rotating Body Part. Your head can rotate a full 360 degrees.
Cantell gains the cognitive mutation: Body Sense. You are acutely aware of how well your body is functioning; your own physical activity levels, nourishment requirements, chemical balances, and fatigue levels. When you touch another living creature, you can extend this detection to it.
Lucasta gains the cognitive mutation: Cultural Adaptation/Detection. You can sense the social norms and expectations for a group or civilization within seconds of exposure. You never have disadvantage on Charisma rolls. While in the wild, you can sense the distance to the nearest community.

NPCs of Note:
Aq/Btuob, the navigator/brain/vessel: Aq still needs a great deal of healing/nourishment before he/it/she/they will be fully restored. Aq feeds on all sources of magic. Darius has rigged a magical syphon to feed Aq directly.

Loot acquired:
A silvery chest full of ashes and tortured voices (briefly).

PC profits:
No gold

XP tally:
Battles fought and won - 0 xp total
Oddities and diplomacy - 5000 xp total
1000 xp each

Hexes explored - 0 x 50
0 xp each
Decks explored - 5 x 50
