 +====== Campaign IX, Chapter 4, Session 44 ======
 +
 +**Title:** A Steel Dragon in Chasadan
 +
 +**Characters:​** [[gaeleth:​people:​Greff]],​ [[gaeleth:​people:​Dert]],​[[gaeleth:​people:​Arkhan]],​ [[gaeleth:​people:​Corrin]]\\
 +
 +**Date:** Early Vor, 1332 Avard\\
 +
 +**Synopsis:​** The lead ME team brings the steel dragon Starvest to Chasadan, and introduces him to the Ducal Mage.
 +
 +====== Story ======
 +
 +//Evening of the 2nd of Vor, 1332 Avard.//
 +
 +The dragon known as Shkelshtarvestish,​ or Starvest for short, agreed to travel with the party back to Chasadan to meet with the Ducal Mage.  Before leaving the northeaster flank of Mount Breakhammer,​ however, the team decided to stay the night in Starvest'​s cave.
 +
 +During the fourth shift, before dawn, megapedes attacked en mass.  The team held the defense at the front, aided by elementals that Starvest brought in for the attack. ​ The megapedes had an acid that they could spew at a distance, and while dangerous, it proved harmless against dragon scale -- more or less.  Arkhan took some painful acid, but the burns it caused did not permanently damage him.
 +
 +The team decided to go ahead and move on, and then spent the next four days heading back to Rustos; Starvest traveled on Demon or Bergeron, while the large bell was pulled by Buck on a travois. ​ Without Starvest in the Dragon'​s Bones, the ruins would likely be overrun with megapedes -- thus assuring Greff'​s supply of sarak to spice of his ale.
 +
 +When the team arrived in Rustos again, they were greeted warmly and welcomed as heroes. ​ The team indicated that they had found a blind man on the mountain, but no sign of the Dragon'​s Bones -- keeping the location of the giant ruins a secret. ​ Greff made sure that Donald the Miller had some sarak with which to spice up several batches of ale, and encouraged the miller to experiment.
 +
 +The next day was spent traveling east towards Chasadan, with the team finally arriving home after a month and three days' worth of travel. ​ They were tired, and ready to relax, but first they had to visit the Meridian Manner and make sure that Hershel met Starvest.
 +
 +While the team had been out, a Sir Galewind had visited Chasadan from Palatus. ​ Galewind had brought with him a dragon-slaying sword, as promised by the Baron Palatus. ​ When the sword entered the room, as per Hershel'​s instructions to return it to Arkhan, Starvest very nearly panicked. ​ The dragon could feel the power of the dragon-slaying blade, even if he could not see it.
 +
 +The blade was placed in an enchanted sack that would hide its magic, and Starvest relaxed a bit.  The Meridian Manner began to celebrate, for their lead team had returned, a dragon had been found, and there was a new trophy for the wall:  a complete exoskeleton of a megapede.
 +
 +And somewhere in the celebrations,​ Arkhan received his fifth holbrace, making him a Prelate of Xynosalionisis.

 +
 +Dinner was nachos, and they were good.  We're going to have to do that again -- with more of everything.
 +
 +This session wrapped up eight months of gaming, and one month and three days in the lives of our characters. ​ Beginning with [[IX-4-22]]'​s episode 'Ducal Days', and ending with this episode, spans a lot of changes in the characters and in the people that play them.  Were these TV episodes, we would'​ve just wrapped up Season Two (more or less). ​ What happens next is anyone'​s guess, but I foresee a number of one-shots until we get an idea of where to go next.
 +
 +If Dave reminds me, he's entitled to some nifty hide armor, provided he's willing to pay Roswyn to enchant it.  That encounter alone will be worth it!
