Wandering around Beregost. My party runs into this crazy wild mage in need of help. No problem, I think. A couple of wizards and some bandits appear. The fight is going well … until …
WILD SURGE: Oops, a gate … Is that a pit fiend?!?!?!
Why, yes. Yes it is. A pit fiend who wants to chase down and eat my level one party.
Neera got chunked within a round. We ran, but Imoen and Khalid didn't make it. Panic, first stop is Firebeard's house. Maybe he can help? Nope. The codger stays near his warm cozy fire and doesn't do jack.
Next, across the street to Feldposts. No, Marl, get away from me. I don't have time for you right now! Rest up, go back outside … and the fiend is gone.
Curiously, the demon targeted no one except Neera and my party. No commoners were harmed. They didn't even notice the beast as it trampled its way through downtown Beregost.
A fun turn, but Neera died before I had a chance to invite her to my party. Good going there, magey.
