What a night tonight was, full of me getting my monsters wrecked by pay to win tactics haha, but that is alright, it was cleverly used and it is there as an option should players feel the need to utilize it, I figure it helps balance out how lethal my stuff is for the average gamer and it helps to support the stream, so that is cool by me. This was the last session for 2016 of our D&D campaign for Bjornstad.

So first things first, there was some pvp that started up over the Lunar Staff which is hilarious, and took hours of gameplay up as a one on one duel between Helga and Jack, which Jack eventually won. Alex handed over the “staff” that was an illusion and tricked them with that keeping the staff for himself. After the duel for the staff was finished they group agreed that it was time to go down speak with George Maximus and handle the Demon Gate once and for all.
Upon meeting with George and the soldiers of Sol they made a plan of attack, that Helga, Dermanis and Alex’s team would take on the fire and snake demon (Balor and Marilith) and that the soldiers of Sol would lead the charge and create an opening for them and handle the other demons. This worked out really well, and its about the time we receieved $300 of dontation from deadpool302 and he gave that credit to Nikki. Nikki with a stroke of genius cast banishment on both demons and paid the $5 twice to make them criticaly fail their saving throws. On reflection they had advantage to those saves so we will rule in future that it only makes you fail one of those roles, but no matter that was my epic boss fight, wrecked dirty pay to win tactics. Oh well, it really helps support the stream so that is great stuff, and now we can buy campaign cartographer 3 and start making the maps for Baeland!
After the demons were defeated, the portal was sealed, Tao presented the crown back to Helga to do with as she wished after seeing her tremendous display of power. Helga with advice from Tames named her twin sister Ursula as the new Queen of Bjornstad. The group decided that before they call it good, they should explore the Dragon lair above Bjornstad and take from it what they could before everyone declared the job finished.
The group took the time to level up from their milestone and then took a ladder up from the tower of the castle and went up through the old open hatch into an ice tunnel. They followed the ice tunnel and came out to an opening that had no roof but was a giant open area with white dragons nested all along the sides and the dragon that they had killed was waiting for them in the center next to her mate. The ice formed a wall behind them cutting off escape, there were about 50 dragons in this nest most of course young ones, but the party was glad they wore their brown pants for this encounter.
Now as I was dreaming of eating the hero’s for dinner and basking in their mass deaths I was disappointed that they began talking with the dragons, and acted diplomatically. The end result being that a peace was arranged provided that one of the dragons sons was to marry Ursula and that dragon hunting would be outlawed and punished in the kingdom from here on out. Dermanis was told that he was to be exiled on pain of death or convert back to the great dragon and build a monastery above their lair. Dermanis and Ursula agreed and peace was made.
The High Dwarven king of Mithril Forge proclaimed Ursula queen of Bjornstad and she swore fealty to the High King. The group was able to rest and rejoice in their victory. Dermanis started work on his dragon monastery. Tula, Olios and Jack retired as Ursulas new royal guard and enforcers. Helga is the head cleric and great champion of the Grand temple of Dwardin Allfather and Ruham Kalamane. Alex returned to the lunar guild and began opening that for teaching new generation of Illusion wizards. Aeryn returned home to Mt Volcano and was knighted as Sir Aeryn and was given a Roc egg to raise as his future mount as a knight and a small plot of land on a tiny Island that was a orange farm. Grayson became 6th man on the Aventine.
That is all for this years D&D campaign in Bjornstad. I will be writing up a module for this and updating more on the website. Next years campaigns are now in development as well and I will be opening up the floor to viewers to play with us and launching our paetron to help support and grow the community the stream and hopefully I can do this full time.
