The session started with Melfias getting a call from his new centaur friends about some assistance they needed at their village. Melfias told them he would be there after they rested and to light a fire to they had a smoke signal to follow. After the rest the group woke up it was night time and they set off for the smoke signal. They used a lantern and OathbringER as their sources of light. Along the path they found a dead body with some gold on him. Soon they could no longer see the smoke signal. MelfIas called up the centaurs angrily asking them to make some sort of light in the sky of which the group could follow. The centaurs said they had already done all they could. Gob sent out his owl to find the village, which he did. The group then continued to the village.
Upon arriving to the village they were greeted by Bojack Horseman the centaur. He said his friend Todd had been murdered some how and his body was in the near by stables. They had no idea how he was killed, but a tracker from the centaur group was able to find a trailer and went off in the middle of the night to hunt down the perpetrators.
The group went to the stables to investigate the dead body. The body was found to be very cold to the touch, but there was no marks of a struggle or any blood. There was no evidence of a break in. Upon investigating further that found that his gouch has more cold to the touch then the rest of his dead body. Gob stated they his eyes looked empty like there was no longer a soul inside him. After the group completed its investigation they went and talked to Bojack. He said he had no idea how his soul would have been taken. He then offered to sit with him and some other centaurs in their mud hut and part take in one of their rituals. The group agreed. On the way to the mud hut the group noticed made cut open gourds with shapes in them and flames flickering inside. They said they were monuments to the spirits. The group went into the hut.
Inside the hut, Bojack took some herbs and lit them on fire and the steam filled up the whole room. The group began to go on a spirit journey. Bojack said the object of this ritual was to learn what your greatest fear was and to face it. One by one around the room different people began to share their fears and tried to face them.
Gob stated growing up he wanted to be a theater star. As a child he was in many plays and commercial stage plays and was a very good actor. The producer of his shows though was Harvey Weinstein and he was known to touch the talent. One day Harvey invited Gob over for some punch in his hotel room. There Harvey raped a young Gob. Gob still is still terrified of Harvey. He is also scared of rape… cause who isnt.
Melfias was next and he told the story of how when he went to band camp he had to do a recital. The issue for Melfias is while he may be a bard he is a very shitty musician. His parents spent 1000s upon 1000s of gold on training Melfias in the fine arts of music and still Melfias just never had the talent for it. During the recital with his rival Matt, Matt absolutely killed the show. Melfias was to nervous and not good enough and failed. His show went awful and he was embarrassed. He has always been afraid to play again in front of a group of people.
Fox told her crazy story about how what she fears is squirrels. She says she believes they are plotting to take over the realm and no one believes her. She also thinks they know that she knows cause it is the one animal that refuses to communicate with her. She would like to eradicate all squirrels if possible.
Alloras fear started when she found a nice white puppy. She took it home as a child and cared for it. One day she let puppy out to walk around the house. She heard growls coming from outside and ran out of the house to find her puppy had been mangled to death by a group of fisher cats. She swore vengeance on these fisher cats for their evil killing ways. She was also afraid to ever have a pet again for fear that her lack of watching over it caused its death.
Galthetes was next and talked about his whore of a mom. She used to bang dudes by the 10 fold and many of the nice men would come in bring him a toy as a child to distract him while his mom got railed. There was one especially nice guy that always brought galthetes the nicest toys and always treated him kindly before he got his knob slobbed. One day galthetes found out that the nice man was killed by a local gang member that also visited his mom for gratuitous monkey sex. Galthetes heard about this and swore the next time he came by the place he would kill him. When he arrived Galthetes as a small 10 year old boy jumped on top of him and began stabbing him with a knife he had on it and wouldnt stop. He stabbed him over 40 times until all that was left was a bloody pulp. Galthetes mom knew this was a connected man and fear for her life. She then kicked Galthetes out of her house and Galthetes had to learn to live on his own at a young age. Galthetes was then afraid of the reaches he could go that harmed his love ones. He was afraid of himself.
Krangor talked about the fear of always being alone. He grew up as an orphan of the city streets and had few friends and no family. The friends he did have eventually betrayed him and he felt even more alone. He is afraid to go back to a time like that and that is why he enjoyed traveling wiTH the group so much. He had gained many more friends that he trusted.
The centaurs also talked about some of their fears like the death of their family, a color blind child making jams out of poison berries, and one girl who was afraid of silence.
After learned their fears the group then went on a mental quest to overcome these and fears and it helped relax the group. Some after the group was woken up by a bright light hitting their eyes. It was morning.
The group went and waited for the tracker to return to the camp. When he did he came back scared and said there were some witches that he believed cause the issue. The tracker brought the group to a bog and he said the witches were located inside there.
The group began to sneak up in the bog and saw a cave. They used their owl to scout out the cave and they could hear the witches talking from the inside. The group began to stealthily approach the cave when they could hear the witches go silent and began to run deeper in the cave. The group gave chase into the cave and as soon as they were in the main area of the cave rocks collapsed at both of the exit tunnels. Melfias used shatter to blow away the rocks from one tunnel. The witches then yelled into the cave saying for the group to drop their weapons. Melfias cunningly lied and said that they have dropped the their weapons when really they had not. The witches believed him and came into the cave. As soon as they walked in the group charged them and got some hits on them. The witches then began to teleport in and out and dimensions. The group was unable to hit them when they were in their other dimension so they had to think of a strategy.
Fox said that everyone should get near a wall so that for the witches to attack us they had to teleport back into the middle of the room then everyone could fire their weapons at them. This mostly worked except there was one entrance way that had a small hole that a witch on the outside was firing spells at the group from. She was able to fear Gob who had frightening visions of Harvey Weinstein trying to touch him. Melfias saw his friend panicking in terror and dispelled the magic away to save him from that rapey Harvey.
The witches continued their assault on the group by going in and out of our reality and casting many spells of fear, sleeps, and sicknesses. Eventually once Gob was back in the fight he was able to hurl some fireballs at the witches that really hurt. Melfias shot some magic missiles, and the rest of the group bashed them i the face with their weapons or shot arrows. Allora took this time to go and sneak into the witches bedroom and try to steal from them. She cracked open the lock of one of their footlockers, but didnt notice the toxic gas trap. She took some damage and the witches came and attacked her. She was hurt with a sickness. The group ran tot he room to try and help her. Krangor and Galthetes were able to get some hits on the witches to soften them up… But it would be Allora that would get her sweet sweet revenge for the maladies the witches caused her.
With the eye of an assassin looking for blood, Allora ran up to the cackling bitches and jammed her venom fang deep in the belly of the withered crone. With one swift pull of back of the dagger she was able to yank out one of the kidneys of the witch bitch and caused her great pain and suffering… but she was not done. She then took her other dagger and jammed that inside of the writing fiend and pulled out her OTHER FUCKING KIDNEY. The witch was well on her way sepsis with out any kidneys to clean out her blood. With both witches weakened and barely holding on for dear life Galthetes ran by both of them and gave them both one final slash to end their despicable lives. Everything was going great except for the part where Melfias was over near the death hole getting fear and fucked up by the 3rd witch that was outside the cave.
Melfias was half dead lying on the ground seeing visions of him failing during musical performances. Krangor being the true bro that he is ran up to Melfias and laId his hands upon him and brought him back from the cusp of death. Fox, Allora, and Galthetes prepared them salves at the cave entrance once Gob molded the earth that was in their way into a nice clear entrance. One that was done the group exploded outside ready to tear the final witch apart. Melfias wanting some sweet revenge of his own was able to get outside before the group could sink their blades into the rotting flesh of the witch. He cast hypnotic pattern and the witches was now stuck in a trance surrounded by a group of 7 angry assholes ready to tear her limb from limb. They came up with a better idea of tying her up and taking away he casting instruments. They would instead have a good old fashion interrogation that I am sure will end with a nice decapitation….
