When we last left our adventurers..
The boat continues up the peninsula. It then crosses a bay that concerns the crew but the captain is as dickish as ever.
The weather turns unnaturally cold. Ice starts to form on the boat.
We get close to shore and a town, at which point the Captain says we must stop to chop the ice away.
The slave wizard augurs auger's future. Wealth and Woe are predicted.
We approach the city and it appears to be frozen over. A perfect winter wonderland of death. We are told by the captain to go to town to get drinks, and the crew will take care of the ice on the boat.
The ice and snow is treacherous, movement is impeded. (Move is 1/2'ed)
We feel a thump through the ground and the wind howls.
After a few minutes the wind blows through the town and deposits a silken top hat in front of us.
A quake of magical energy is released and from under the top hat forms Frostar the Snow Demon.
The demon is attacked with flames causing his coal eyes to flare.
He casts cone of cold on the entire party. That hurt.
Ice mephits appear and surround the group, there are at least 12 of them.
The two wizards cast flaming spheres onto the mephits to thin their ranks.
Picket attacks multiple mephits with rays and magic missles.
Mephits explode shards of ice.
The party knocks down Frostar and he casts stinking cloud on the group.
Valek attacks Frostar one last time and he explodes in a cold wind. The wind picks up the top hat and moves it approx 50 feet away and cone of colds the party again. Valek, the cleric, and Preator fall. The two wizards are all that remain.
The wizards attempt to make it to the fallen allies. Picket holds the line against Frostar, and Amadeus is able to revive Valek while the other two struggle to hang on. Valek lays on hands the two remaining adventurers.
Picket lands the final blow with a necrotic touch and Frostar says "I will be back someday!!" and explodes again. The hat falls to the ground.
Inside the hat are 5 small wrapped presents. Each member takes one. There is also a locked and bound token of some type.
Once the items are removed the hat blows away with the wind.
We find dead people and approx 300 in gems, and 300 in coinage. And a potion labeled Climb.
Everyone advances to level 5.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
