The last session of my backwards Pathfinder Iron Gods adventure path game took place between the end of Lords of Rust and the beginning of The Chocking Tower. There's going to some spoilers (mostly about the end of Lords of Rust).
Modok: Android Magus (Bladedroid, Kensai)/7 with 25 Fame
- Balance Artificial Intelligence/6, AI weapon, NPC
Tebryn Vonnarc: Drow Magus (Eldritch Scion, Spelldancer)/7 with 26 Fame
- Kalvora Viper, familiar, NPC
Dagna Skyforge: Dwarf Magus(Soulforger)/7 with 24 Fame
Ankul Bitor: Ratfolk Magus/4 Alchemist (Vivisectionist)/1 Rogue/2 with 23 Fame
The party left the excavator complex and went to talk to Dinvaya. Tebryn
convinced her to try and free Zagmander. They also hired some of the
locals to go into the dungeon and bring out the heavier loot. They sold
what they were able to sell in Scrapwall (but kept the technology items
for their evil masters).
The next day Dinvaya succeeded in removing Zagamander's curse and she
rewarded them with her Laser Torch and her mithral bracers (worth 800
gp) before she returned to the Ethereal Plane to lay her eggs in people.
The party then traveled back to
Algonard's Grave to wait for the boat that would take them down river.
Once inside the gate they were ambushed. A hawk flew down from the gate
tower and attacked Tebryn, while a hidden archer (using Greater
Chameleon Stride) fired an arrow and killed Tebryn (+1 Elf-Bane
composite longbow with Gravity Bow and Named Bullet). Then a couple of
Satyrs emerged from hiding and one used his pan pipes for Charm Person.
Only Dinvaya successfully saved and she used Giant Vermin to get some
giant spiders to help her (they didn't really do much). Finally five
giant toads (the result of Summon Nature's Ally by all three attackers)
burrowed up out of the earth. Dagna killed the other Satyr. Ankul was
swallowed by a toad and killed it from the inside. The Satyr tried to
command them to stop fighting, but Balance succeeded on a Sense Motive
check and it didn't work on it due to the "no suicide" clause. Balance
then convinced Modok to keep fighting. The archer killed Dinvaya. Dagna
climbed up the tower and killed the archer (an Elf) in one hit at which
point the remaining Satyr surrendered. Modok let it drop it's gear and
leave (though Ankul attacked it anyway so it ran).
They searched the elf, and while she had some interesting gear: notably a
stone that apparently will teleport one Medium creature to a keyed
location once only, some magically Illuminated maps relating to the
Darklands and some Dark Flares (an alchemical item that blinds
They also looted Dinvaya. And discovered that the staffing of the
outpost (the old Paladin and three fighters) had been murdered with
arrows and buried in the graveyard.
After that they traveled to Torch, claimed the 8,000 gp for destroying the relay in Scrapwall and returned Dinvaya's body to Jorum. Tebryn was able to convince him that he still owed them the
Lesser Rod of Extend Metamagic because they had completed the task
(deliver the message to Dinvaya) that he asked them to and it wasn't their fault she died.
They left Torch and went north to
Starfall where they checked in with the home office. Tebryn got promoted
to Lieutenant and Ankul to Assistant (due to the chaos of the league
these are the same rank). They sold all that tech loot to the
League. Ankul and Dagna got some cybernetics installed, and Tebryn got a
Girdle of Opposite Gender for a sex change.
They also convinced the League they got Dinvaya killed on purpose and earned 1 Prestige, getting paid twice.
I think it's fairly amusing that they got a reward by convincing somebody that Dinvaya's death wasn't their fault, and a reward for convincing somebody else that it totally was.
