The group picked up where they had left off in December- the middle of fighting with the T-Virus dragon. We’d left with a mix of infection levels. Rei had started to turn from phase 1 to phase 2, so the warforged used two surges to trigger her ‘save if dead’ power, but modified to instead separate Rei from the infection. The result was a Rei-shaped t-virus dragon/clone who had Rei’s bloodied value in hp.
The group continued fighting the T-virus dragon as it shifted forms. It was able to spray out large shards that covered the ground, painful to anyone stuck in the ground. I think it stayed after the fight? Might be worth looking at it.
There were also pods, most of which got exploded, I think? One got hit early on with fire-radiant damage +ongoing from the warforged, and later from ice explosions, and that seemed to cause it to change? It became more egg-like/ mini nuke-like in shape and size, and a pale blue color. In general, it seemed like these pods were set to develop over time before ‘hatching’. One was there long enough, it hatched into an eight-legged horse-dragon…thing that went and attacked Verinal.
Meanwhile, Chant was trying to convince Lil Miss to calm down. Lil Miss was freaking out because her power armor had broken and now T-Virus could attack (I think rolling 1s were involved…).
At some point, Moe’s infection levels were getting too high, so the Warforged used ‘fire, fire, purify’ (or something similar. There was a misunderstanding of what was said) to try and get rid of the infection. Moe began to glow and be a scrubby bubble with her aura, in addition to losing her infection levels.
Eventually the dragon was beat, hurrah! And uhm, very exploded. The warforged carried on her tradition of doing massive damage as primarily overkill. Yayyyy 425 icy colossal executioner axe damage. Thanks Shiva.
When ‘Evil Rei’ was low on health, she seemed to be breathing hard and sort of…out of it? There was…stabilization by the warforged/Moe? Maybe. ‘Evil Rei’ had taken radiant damage that had seemed to ‘smoothed’ part of ‘Evil Rei’ out, while the other half was mutating from the fire side of the damage. Warforged decided to try purifying her more rather than doing an ‘attack’, and after a couple attempts, all of the dragon seemed to ‘stabilize’ into a violet-tinted, mercury looking material. And then dragon went snooooooze. Unclear exactly what’s going on. But uh. We might have another dragon. Dragon named “Jin” for the concept of metal for the minute.
(Find out more about dragon next time- also see how it feels about name? Also, need to investigate the ‘dragon’ egg from the pod)
Warforged also might have had some words with one of the voices in her head on the matter. To Oriana, this transformation looked like Bahamut was at work and involved/approved of what was going on.
What else am I forgetting? Did we learn anything else?
Next time, questions/continuation of asking what we learn from our religion/nature checks about our new dragon and egg, and then hopefully a huge extended rest zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
