Session 10: Nicholas attacks
The party headed south hot on the trail of the missing teens and the cult leader. Meela led the party using her excellent tracking skills. After 2 days the party arrived just past sunset to a bit of clearing just inside a seemingly dead forest. Miri and Nicholas went ahead of the party to scout. They found a tent which appeared to contain a black impenetrable dome.
They also found a body.. The body of Stanley Fief. After checking on the body and determining it to most lkely be dead they were surprised when it rose up to attack them. Miri was further surprised when Nicholas attacked her! With Fire!
It turns out that the tent contained a a fearsome being- the cult leader - and that he was not human (he was a tiefling!) but also not normal. He took control of Nicholas and ordered him to attack Miri repeatedly. He also moved extremely quickly - faster than any normal man could move.. and he bit both Miri and Ohron with long fanged teeth.
Eventually, Nicholas did regain control of his faculties and the party managed to defeat the cult leader. Though when they expected him to fall dead he turned into mist and floated off into the woods.
