Castle Defense - Day 6

Hector’s team had some last minute additions and substitutions. So the Final Strike Team consisted of:
-TheMainEvent: Hector (Human? – Copy Bard 11)
-SashaWarlord: Molitor, Adult Magma Dragon
-Plasmacoils: Mallah of House Baron (Alfar – Witch of the Devourerer 6) with Bacon (Dwarf Pig – Familiar 6)and Phobia of House Baron (Alfar – Witch of the Devourerer 6)with Hamon (Dwarf Pig – Familiar 6)
-IsaacObsidianPortal: Killermoth of House Zurai (Alfar – Witch of the Devourerer 6)with Scuttle (Centepede – Familiar 6) and Punkrocket of House Zurai (Alfar – Witch of the Devourerer 6) with Wriggle (Centepede – Familiar 6)
-GedofParagon: Educe the Brown (Hobgoblin – Summoner 11), The Warlord (Daemon – Eidolon 11), and some of Educe’s Followers (6 x Brown Minion! 1, 1 x Brown Minion! 3, 3 Blue Minion 1) AND a summoned CuestoArchaeon (Toad Archaeon – Archaeon 6).
-Deklar42: Windigo the young White Dragon (Medium Dragon, CR6), and Adonis Miko (Bard 5).

Hector had the Brown Minion(!)s dig under the enemy forces to assault an approaching Iceburg Fortress at it’s Snail Harness’. (Effectively targeting the ‘engines’) They broke into two Bard-led strike teams: Team Hector (Educe, Warlord, Killermoth/ Scuttle, Punkrocket/ Wriggle, and the Toad Archaeon, 3 Brown Minions(!), and 2 Blue Minions(!)); and Team Adonis (Windigo, Phobia/ Hamon, Mallah/ Bacon, Molitor, 4 Brown Minions(!), and 1 Blue Minion(!).

Team Hector met with early disaster, as a teleportation mishap placed the majority of his team in an identical location in the WRONG Iceburg Fortress… This fractured Team Hector, and created Team Educe! Meanwhile the Toad Arcaheon found himself facing a half-dozen Ice Trolls alone… Hector found himself left with a handful of Minions(!) who had strict orders from Educe to stay out of combat…

Team Adonis met with early success: They destroyed thier target Ice Snail, enterted the Iceburg Fortress, and smashed aside Ice Trolls, Fish Tribe Warriors, and even an ambushing Assassin with ease. All was going well until Molitor started getting hit by an invisible arcane sniper…

Team Educe met the enemy head-on striking down their “target” Ice Snail and it’s six attending Ice Trolls at the cost of the lives of Punkrockit, and Wriggle. Ed summoned a mix of Red and Brown Minions(!), and focused on finishing off wounded ice trolls before they could regenerate. The Witches wreaked havoc with their Lightning Bolt Wands, though they lost half their number; and the Warlord tanked the enemy’s Ice Snail, diverting much of the damage that would have been done to his team. (At the cost of the humiliation of being repeatedly skewered by the Snail’s ‘Reproductive Harpoon’…) Then the roiling thundercloud appeared overhead…

Team Hector: The Toad Archaon Slowed the Ice Trolls with it powers, then diminsion-doored back to Hector to regroup. The Bard and the Archaeon then transported themselves back into the fray! Hector swiftly dispatched the Ice Trolls with a couple of Fireballs, and charmed the Ice Slug. Leaving the Minions(!) to tend the now-friendly snail, the duo moved forward and convinced the local crew that Hector was in fact his twin brother Hamish… He ordered the engine deck evacuated, and moved towards the third Target Snail unhindered, escorted by the Toad Archaeon.

Team Adonis found itself in trouble. Windigo was dominated by an unseen absolute and was sent to assasinate Adonis! Though Phobia tried to dispel the effect, and Mallah attempted to use a web spell to diable the afflicted Dragon; the unwitting Dragon succeeded in lopping off Adonis’ head! The bard was able to get off one last command before his oratory was forever silenced, “Fireball the last room, he has to be there!” Molitor cried, “No, it’ll never work!” Mallah was the next to fall to the Absolute’s domination. He drew his Rapier and tried to kill his coven-brother, only to be Charmed by Phobia’s magic instead. Molitor, following his fallen leader’s last order hurled a fireball into the previous room, and caught the invisible absolute in a raging inferno! Adonis’ last thoughts as his head rolled along the icy ground were: Vindication! V-I-N-D-I-C-A-T-I-O-N!!! – erk… Team Adonis became – Team Molitor.

Team Educe had defeated all of the enemies they could see, just as with Adonis’ team it was the Absolute they didn’t see that threatened to annihilate them. Hidden among the clouds, an absolute managed to dominate The Warlord. Killermoth the Witch sensed the change in the Warlord’s aggression, and warned Educe in time to dismiss his master before the situation could get ugly. Unfortuantly, another form of ugliness was in store as the Absolute’s tentecles struck, and pulled the Summoner, and all three of his reds skyward…

Team Hector had arrived at the 3rd target: The only remaining Ice Snail. With a quip about being a one-trick pony he dispatched the trolls with fireballs, while the Toad Archaeon used Hold Monster on the Snail. With the mission all but in the bag he wondered, “Where is everybody?”

Team Molitor was lost – Molitor the Magma Dragon had fallen under the control of the marauding absolute. The monstreous abberation moved up next to his new pet – and died. Molitor’s domination had been a ruse on the part of the crafty dragon! With the controller dead, Windigo and Mallah were freed from control – and the team pushed on into the third target area to find a worried Hector had already accomplished the mission…

Team Educe was struggling. The Absolute had brought it’s poisonous aura into play, and already all of the Minions(!) were unable to breathe. Killermoth, gasping for the air his lungs could no longer process, shot bolt after bolt of arcane lightning into the creature. In desparation Ed summoned a Green Minion(!) Assassin, who stabbed deeply into the Absolute’s vitals. After a gruesome struggle the Absolute was defeated, Killermoth and his familiar were stuck in a magically created pool of water, (The only reason they didn’t drown in air!), and a powerful Blue Minion(!) was summoned to scry the location of Hector. realizing at last that they were alone and in the wrong Iceburg, Ed summoned browns to dig their way to freedom. Results: Educe the Brown – MIA, Killermoth the Witch – MIA, Wriggle the Familiar – MIA, Punkrokit the Witch – KIA, Scuttle the Familiar – KIA, The Warlord – KIA.

Team Hector absorbed Team Molitor, and they worked together to 1) Set this fortress on a collision course with another pursuing fortress, and 2) left the Frog Archaeon to detonate the explosives aboard the fortress to maximize damage on impact. They then recieved a sending from Saerun Sorjourn of the Hauflin Tribe: an enemy engineer team consisting of magically accellerated Ice Snails and Ice Trolls was rapidly closing on their captured Ice Fortress.

Working quickly, the newly reforged Team Hector intercepted and destroyed the engineering teams, while capturing two “shell-less” ice snails in the process. – Victory!
