The muffled crying behind us rose into choking sobs as the first zombie shuffled over the snow. We recognized it instantly – the younger brother, freshly murdered by his own undead father as punishment for bringing us here. 

His father, now a monstrous frozen wight was the murderer, but I couldn’t help but feel guilty. We had pledged to protect them even when the brothers lead us to him. They had helped their father out of misplaced duty, but they didn’t deserve this fate.

There was still a chance to protect the other son and destroy this undead fiend. I unleashed a double TK blast at the nearest zombie, shoving it backwards through Halfred’s bramble trap. While Halfred and T.I.M. kept the others busy, the wight approached me with a grim resolve. I readied my psi-glaive for attack, relying on my icy shield that I worried wouldn’t do much good against a creature of frozen death. 

The wight caught me off guard by lowering its axes and reaching out with its ghastly hand. Its grasp seemingly grabbed my heart, freezing me from the inside. I felt the warmth of life drain from my body and my teeth chattered.

The front gate finally exploded, throwing shards of wood and metal fragments into the entrance of the town. The frost giant pulled his greataxe back and barreled inside. We were like annoying flies buzzing around him as he ignored our combined assaults.

That would prove to be a fatal mistake.

As the heavily injured giant charged forward I readied my psi-glaive in a hamstring maneuver to slow his assault. Sir Baric was quicker, bellowing a war cry as he brought his maul down on the giant’s foot, causing the mighty frost giant warlord to careen into the wall. He lurched forward and smashed his face into the ground.

I could only stare as I saw T.I.M., having charged the giants outside the gates earlier in the fight, suddenly tumbling off the giant’s back.

From behind me I heard another giant begin to shout, “Drufi is dead! Drufi is dead!” Continue reading “D&D 5E “Storm King’s Thunder” Session 11 Recap”
