Recounting Encounters - Storm over Neverwinter - Session 3: City of the Insane

Adventure Background: Storm Over Neverwinter

The frontier city of Neverwinter has persevered in the face of calamity. Yet even as the city rebuilds, an insidious threat rises from within its walls. Neverwinter’s citizens are succumbing to an inexplicable madness, while from the shadows, an evil cult of Asmodeus spins sinister plans. Unless a group of heroes rises to stop these perils, Neverwinter might face an even greater danger on the horizon.

This D&D Encounters season takes characters from levels 3-6. It also includes an optional online component, which allows players and Dungeon Masters to convert the adventure to the D&D Next playtest.

Join us for another great season of the good the bad and the ugly as Derek from, Craig and I recap everything that happened at our gaming table this week.  We talk about what happened during the encounter, some of the changes that we made as DM's and talk about some of things we liked a lot and things we liked not so much.
Session 3 - City of the Insane

This week in my opinion continues where session 2 ended.  You have rescued Lady Nidris's son Zan and have returned him to her.  She then tells the party that there will be a reward for an answer to the kidnappings.  She says if the party can put a stop to it they will receive much gold.  The party can then return to the Ashmadai hangout and start from there.

The party has the option to explore the docks area or to get some information from the Beached Leviathan, a converted beached ship.  the party speaks to the captain of the guard Muln Horan, and as soon as he is finished speaking, a few devils and some dominated folks attack the party with Horan being one of the casualties.

the session ends with some of the soldiers of Neverwinter approaching the party and telling them that many, many people are going mad.

This season looks to be an interesting one so follow us as Craig and Derek follow 4th edition and me as I attempt this season in the DnDNext rules.

It should be interesting so enjoy!!!
