Banished to the Purple Planet - Part Eleven


Under a Weirdling Sun


Peril on the Purple Planet is an epic DCCRPG box set devised by +Harley Stroh. The adventure is a hex crawl, so player characters get to explore a completely open and lush world. Characters must discover artifacts, make alliances, battle terrifying worms, and sustain the deadly sun's rays if they are to ever make their way back home.

      Banished to the Purple Planet - Eleven


      Day 10
      • The party begins the evening at 10:30pm, with 3 1/2 hours of power left on the skiff. 
      • 10:45pm, the party discovers Walter the elf, trying to hitch a ride.
        • Walter the Elf, spent several days in the Mushroom forests after being cast out by the King of Elfland from his home world. 
        • The party also met Walter's sexy cricket familiar. 
      • 11pm, the party spots 13 Kith refugees slowly making their way across the desert.
        • Party approaches, but communication is challenging.
        • Ssof offers healing magic, imbued with Aristemis' glory. 
        • The wounded Kith are healed! 
        • Ssof is offered the opportunity to make a banner for the refugees, which he does with the symbol of Aristemis. 
        • The 13 Kith of Aristemis point to the jungles to the East. 
      • 11:15pm, the party continues south along the edge of the mushroom forest. They come to the scene of a great battle!
        • 145 Kith on the side of House Cotcyst 
        • 124 Kith Raiders
        • Charge! The party dives down into battle on board their skiff. They head towards the Raiders' right flank, currently under the command of a Silver Armor Champion.
        • Highlights were Screaming Otto using his Axe of Pure Scream to scare off the largest champion, and then Ssof took control of the second largest champion through a binding prayer. Also Walter's Enlarge spell manifests as the target becoming a baby and then growing back into a larger full form. Some great driving by Floyd as well, as he takes out four of the raiders by drifting into them. 
        • In the end, House Cotcyst is victorious with 122 remaining warriors, while the Raiders run off with only 74 left in their numbers. 
        • The Wingleader, Warlord of House Cotcyst calls upon the party. 
      • 12am, camp with the Wingleader. 
        • Speaks common! Learned from a small party of dwarves that he kept for a while as walking meat storage... he ate them eventually. 
        • Offered spoils, including a great deal of Greenstone Shards. 
        • Agree to take the party back to Castellum Cotcyst. 
      • 12pm, the party arrives at Castellum Cotcyst. 
        • The Wingleader tells the PC's that they must be branded with the symbol of House Cotcyst to enter. 
        • The PC's take on the Brands of House Cotcyst, and enter Castellum Cotcyst as members of the Wingleader's Warband. 


      Quotes


      "The idea was fully Alex." - The party describes Gastronomix's death in the last session. 

      "Considering he got eaten as his means of death, it's actually pretty fitting." - Marc continues beating up Gastronomix, this time over his name. And Alex wasn't even playing. 

      "Only one screamer in the party!" - Screaming Otto doesn't want Walter or the Sexy Cricket on board the skiff if either is a screamer.
