|So the girls finally reached Drownesia--the penumbral and drow-haunted Isles of the Chimera Moon.|
|Mostly on the strength of: they heard there were dinosaurs you could ride.|
|This turned out to be true. Ranger Laney went hunting atop a utahraptor with Prince Viswanathananand of Viswanathanananda Palace and brought down a bird of paradise. (An utahraptor?)|
|Meanwhile Connie stole 250 gp worth of gilded penumbral treasure from the palace.|
|Stokes acquired some powder of the white lotus from the gardens of Warmistress Parvathra.|
|Then everybody remembered they were playing D&D and decided to rob a caravan of goblin brigands.|
Because, hey, they're goblins, right? Also they had some stegosaurs.
Preliminary ranger investigation reveals the 26 goblins are taxing everybody who comes down the road through the orchid-choked jungles.
So I clear the table and lay out all the goblin minis. I count them out and go "Oh wait, there's 30" and Connie's like "Wait, 30? Ummmm..."
But, fuck it, they fought 30 goblins.
It started alright--Connie backstabbed the leader within an inch of his life and Stokes fireballed 15 to death, but, a round or two later, Laney and Stokes had been carried off, Mandy was webbed at one hit point and Connie had been turned into a pig.
Another one of those near-TPK days.
They pulled it out, thanks to bold hog action, Defense Wizard David, and a magic item stolen long long ago from the Goblin King of Gaxen Kane.
He wants it back really bad.
