All the dragonborn, blue and white together, respected Korinn’s new leadership role, immediately recognizing the armband she had taken from Rygen. I’d never seen her so confident and commanding.

Despite their animosity and history, the blues and whites agreed to join their dwindling forces together, there in the Great Worm Cavern. Survival can be an excellent motivator. 

I approached the altar in the cavern, reaching out with my mind. As I got closer, the mysterious disembodied voice responded. “Welcome back, mortal. I no longer sense the corruption on these dragonborn.”

“There were some…complications,” I replied. “But everyone’s safe now.”

“I’m glad to hear it.” The statue shimmered and vibrated as the ghostly form of a feathered serpent materialized out of it. The gathered dragonborn stood with mouths agape as the couatl nodded its head respectfully. “Look back upon the gong and take your prize.”

I glanced over at the ancient gong. Where once had been a missing indentation, there was now a length of bone inscribed with a glowing rune. The final Ostorian relic.

This week we wrapped up our battle with the summoned ice golems at the dragonborn camp, then officially united the two warring tribes. Our reward was the final Ostorian relic we could use to gain entrance to the Eye of the All-Father. Continue reading “D&D 5E “Storm King’s Thunder” Session 39 Recap”

The weather was bitterly cold but the air around us was electric. The entire warband of blue dragonborn had turned out. Many looked to Korinn like a returning savior, while others spat at her feet.

Unfortunately for us, Rygen was firmly in the latter camp. Despite Korinn’s attempts at diplomacy, only a test of strength would decide who would lead the tribe from here, and Rygen wasn’t going down without a fight.

We had taken turns bestowing various blessings, spells, and magical artifacts on our dragonborn sorcerer. She was nervous, but resolute.

A ring was formed around the two blue dragonborn. Rygen towered over his brethren, put his hands together and pulled them apart, lighting arcing between them until a blade of living lightning materialized in his hands.

“Step forward and face me in single combat, Korinn.”

[NOTE: This will be a shorter recap, as I was wholly absent for this entire session thanks to the flu]

This week we took the fight to the aggressive neighboring blue dragonborn tribe – Korinn’s tribe, forcing her into a duel for control of the warband. Continue reading “D&D 5E “Storm King’s Thunder” Session 38 Recap”

We began to dig in the snow, searching for the missing relic that would slot perfectly into this ancient gong. Did it simply fall off? Prynos and a few of the white dragonborn watched us, curiosity beginning to overtake caution.

I wandered over the great winged serpent statue, searching for clues. A voice suddenly rang out in my mind.

“Hello, friend. You are a mind-speaker are you not?”

The voice was intrusive but not hostile. It was calm, so I replied in kind. It claimed to be the cave itself, and was concerned and protective of the refugee dragonborn that had taken up residence here.

The voice claimed the enemy blue dragonborn had been corrupted. The work of our blue dragon foe, no doubt. The voice wished for us to deal with them. 

The cavern began to shake, and the voice grew concerned. “Oh dear. It’s been so long since anyone was here. They’re coming for you. Protect these innocents.”

The voice receded from our minds while chunks of ice crashed around us, and monstrous insectoid forms dropped in front of us.

This week we made multiple bargains with powerful forces in our quest to find the sixth and final Ostorian relic. Continue reading “D&D 5E “Storm King’s Thunder” Session 37 Recap”
